At least we don’t have to shovel it! Filmed in the Papyrus Card Store on Broadway and Park Place. Enjoy!
One of our favorite Chelsea Gallery discoveries of 2015 is the Joseph Gross Gallery, where we got turned on to cool and creative artists like Sebastian Wahl and the ridiculously hot Joseph Grazi, among others.
Not to mention, but you can see I am about to, the ladies that work there are super nice and friendly — which we certainly know that is not the case with many galleries — and that makes visiting Joseph Gross a pleasure. Right now, they have a very eclectic Winter Group Show going on where you can see the artworks featured in this post, plus many more!
Look how beautiful this one is.
Francesco Lo Castro has a few stand-out pieces in the show. He works with acrylic, spray paint and layered epoxy resin on wood. These pieces have so many visual aspects to them and are quite captivating.
Sean Newport is a San Francisco based artist whose work varies from design to sculpture. He has two pieces in the group show that resemble origami, but are actually acrylic on hand-cut poplar wood.
I love the way his use of color recalls the effect of recessed lighting.
I love this tiny Pink Tricycle and the play on words in its title. Clever!
Anybody wanna shoot some hoops?
This painting by Danish graffiti artist Rune Christensen reminds me very much of Paul Insect, whose art I adore.
Joseph Gross Gallery’s Winter Group Show will be up through January 23rd, 2016 at 548 W 28th Street, in the Chelsea Gallery District.
We had quite the snowstorm here in New York on the same day I had to travel to Brooklyn for an Art Opening. Lovely. As much as the snow and wind created an unfortunate commuting experience, it did also make for an opportunity to take some nice photos. Pedro’s Mexican Restaurant, located at 73 Jay Street, at the corner of Front Street, is illuminated by exterior lights that change color in rotation, and I stood still just long enough to snap this photo just as the lights were turning Pink! Excellent.
Every winter, world class carvers travel to Ithaca, NY to show off their sculpting skills in a national ice carving event known as Ithaca Ice Wars. Sculptors spend an entire day transforming giant blocks of ice into breathtaking pieces of frozen artwork. You can see how the entire town gets involved in the spirit of finding a way to have a good time while freezing your butt off.
The event at which the above video was filmed took place in late December of 2013. So, while it doesn’t get really freezing in Manhattan until at least January, you can see that folks upstate are already finding ways to turn their suffering into wild adventure at least a month ahead of us.
This looks like an amazing event.
