Brooklyn’s Ground Floor Gallery presents Women at Work

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery’“Women at Work” features three Brooklyn-based woman artists – Natalie Baxter, Paola Citterio, and Leslie Tucker – whose work questions traditionally masculine or feminine labor roles and materials by reinterpreting family histories, consumer culture and politics.

Natalie Baxter employs sewing and quilting techniques from her grandmother to create soft sculptures exploring Americana and the political zeitgeist; Paola Citterio creates pieces blending the traditional craftwork she learned from the women in her childhood home (knitting, sewing, felting and baking) with found objects from city streets; and Leslie Tucker translates her passion for satire, consumer culture, and decoding human nature into suggestive digital collages layered with meaning.

The exhibition is on-going with a closing reception on May 13th 2 – 4pm.

Using Your iPhone & iPad Like a Pro, to Get More Followers and Sell More Art – workshop open to AWAD members and the public.

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

 

Workshop on MAY 1ST

The Association of Women Art Dealers and our partner for professional development, Be Smart About Art, is pleased to offer Using Your iPhone & iPad Like a Pro, to Get More Followers and Sell More Art! The workshop will be held on May 1st from 3:00 – 4:30 at the Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery on 46 90th Street, New York, New York.

We are all so used to pulling out our phones and tablets and just snapping away – whether they’re pictures of art, our pets, kids and dinner. Not all of those photo’s work for their intended purpose. Art business promotion and brand creation on social media platforms like instagram are now critical to success. Consequently, it’s increasingly  important for people to understand how to effectively use smartphones and tablets in art businesses today.

This information rich, practical and hands-on workshop led by photographer Chris E King will cover:

  • Tips on how pros use smartphones to snap and edit photos plus videos (including apps to use);
  • How to upload images and videos to social media / YouTube / other platforms;
  • Training to help you export images from your phone + back-up images so that you don’t lose them;
  • Trouble-shooting.

This workshop is open to all. To register follow this link to Eventbrite.

 

No Longer Supported at the Sara Nightingale Gallery through April 19th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present, No Longer Supported. The exhibition will run through April 19.

The software you use daily and rely upon has been deprecated. It is no longer safe to use, and its imminent obsolescence includes an upgrade that purports to improve your life, but is actually designed to enhance the spyware, obfuscate your metadata, and make you even more dependent. The transition will be cumbersome and time consuming. But do you really have a choice?

Rather than assembling a group of artists who are concentrating on the demise of traditional painting supports – torn, shredded or punctured canvasses, exposed stretcher bars, paintings hung backwards, oddly shaped canvases, painting as sculpture, etc… this exhibition will focus on works that address time as a subject, or are time-sensitive. The omitted torn canvasses, however, serve as a metaphorical backdrop. Support systems and structures we were once accustomed to are failing us. Infrastructure, government, technology and nature, rather than sturdy pillars on which we can depend, now seem like mere scaffolding. All have been unpredictable and unruly of late. The exhibition features: Bonnie Rychlak, Darlene Charneco, Maggie Simonelli, Barbara Friedman, and Christa Maiwald

  A percentage of proceeds from sales will be donated to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp.  Mail your donation to: PO Box 2725, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.
