It is no secret that Worleygig.com is a huge fan and supporter of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery and that we try to attend and cover every show! So, it was lots of fun to find ourselves at the opening reception of The Color and The Fury group show, celebrating 10 Years of great art at Jonathan LeVine!
I’m not sure if ice cream treats were served at some point during the evening, but if they were it was after we left. In addition to an exhibit of selected works by LeVine-represented artists, one wall of the gallery is dedicated to a site-specific, shrine-like installation of memorabilia from past shows, oddball props and various likenesses of Jonathan LeVine himself created by artists like Mike Leavitt and Dan Witz — also very fun!
Speaking of Ice Cream Treats, here is a lifesize-ish cut out of Jonathan LeVine as an Ice Cream Sandwich!
The wall was full of little Tableaus like This One of Jonathan with his Fans, Friends and Supporters.
We enjoyed finding little reminders of shows past tucked among the many cards and mini shrines along the wall.
I wish I could say that I remember what that Grey Suit was about, but I do not.
In honor of JLG’s dedication to and support of the Street Art of The World!
I wonder what is in that jar? Is it little Gummy Jonathans?
Contribution by artist Gary Taxali!
Here is an example of Gary’s art!
Whose boots are these? I have no idea.
How many of these shows were we at? So many.
Don’t you want to go see all of this stuff in person after I have teased you mercilessly with my awesome photos? I know you do.
You can see this painting by Brett Amory while you are there.
And this one by SHAG.
And this one by Pose, which I really like.
If you love art, please make sure to see the Jonathan Levine 10th Year Anniversary Show while it is up, until March 21st, 2015, at 529 East 20th Street, 9th Floor, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
