Ground Floor Gallery presents Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And . . . we haven’t forgotten you!

On Tuesday February 13th, from 6 – 9 at Brooklyn’s NU Hotel, come to Ground Floor Gallery’s winter pop-up Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean.

The gallery will be selling original, small art works – conceived as Valentines – by dozens of local, emerging artists. Each will be priced at $75 with $25 from each sale supporting hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and St. John: two Caribbean-American territories that share a fraught history in the sugar industry and are oft synonymous with sunny escapes. The day-to-day reality doesn’t necessarily reflect that vision – especially now, mere months after Hurricanes Irma + Maria devastated these cherished islands.

This show is a follow-up to the Gallery’s successful 2017 show “Marked Urgent,” that raised $1,000 for the Committee to Protect Journalists from dozens of your $25 donations!  This year, they’re hoping to repeat history with a new partner and location: Brooklyn’s NU Hotel at 85 Smith St. Brooklyn, NY .

Ground Floor Gallery presents Drums on Paper: With the Neighbors

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

For Drums on Paper: With the Neighbors, Ground Floor Gallery has invited local, Park Slope-based printing studio, Authorized to Work in the US Press, to take over their gallery space for a month!

The studio’s founder, artist Cem Kocyildirim, will print new Risograph work from the gallery – in collaboration with local artists – and encourage the gallery’s neighbors to experience the process through artist-led workshops from the space. The show will evolve as prints are created in the gallery each week and added to the exhibition. Cem will also continue his Riso Bike tour (initiated this summer) throughout the City!

The exhibition and workshops run through October 15, 2017, with the closing reception from 3 – 5pm.

Provenance at ground floor gallery on-going until July 9th

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

ground floor gallery is pleased to present Provenance featuring artists Ai Campbell, Sara Jones and Anne Mourier-DeFalco. The exhibition is an investigation of unfamiliar family histories through travel, artmaking, and conjecture.  

The exhibition illustrates each artist’s attempt to demystify an estranged familial connection through explorations both in and outside of the studio space. By revisiting unknown or misunderstood identities and destinations of yore, Campbell, Jones and DeFalco intimately craft tender, mixed-media portraits that veer fluidly between the biographical and autobiographical.  As a result, the exhibition emerges as a real time platform where hazy ancestral ties are elucidated and reimagined.

Ground Floor Gallery’s 4th Anniversary Exhibition, Current Locations until May 29th, 2017

Every April, Ground Floor Gallery owners, Krista Scenna & Jill Benson, celebrate the gallery’s anniversary by asking artists from the previous season to recommend artists to show in the current season.   
 

The 5 talents in “Current Locations” were selected from these recommendations and the duo is  thrilled to introduce them to you! 
 

“Current Locations” also speaks to these artists’ affinity with creating a sense of place (or places): painter Barbara Marks creates voluminous pictorial & interior spaces with her deeply saturated color palette; Elise Church paints intimate environments based on her travels in space in time; Colombian artist, Esperanza Cortés incorporates natural resources and folklore motifs from her homeland as a means of exploring personal identity; Kyle Vu-Dunn sculpts warped “natural” environments to harbor the self; and Viviane Rombaldi Seppey blends world maps (with emphasis on places she’s lived) with morbid imagery from traditional medical textbooks. 

Exhibition is ongoing and closes May 29th, 2017
