Hi all, and welcome to what we’ll call the St. Patty’s Day Edition of FSS. Just on the off-chance that you don’t plan to puke up green beer all weekend, here’s what’s going on in the NYC art world.
Friday, March 15th
This group exhibition promises to be fairly eclectic, and although the flyer makes you ache for Kevin Bacon-centric pieces, something tells me that the image is just good PR (After all, who doesn’t love a good K-Bac appearance?) This should prove to be an exciting show, as this is the grand opening of the new Brooklyn gallery space. Although there is no evidence of the K.B. brand surfacing anywhere, this is a great opportunity to be a part of the first ever exhibition of a young gallery.
Opening Reception 7-10pm @ The Bishop on Bedford, 916 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn NY
Saturday, March 16th
For something on the more abstract side, check out Rochelle Feinstein’s solo show of her minimal mixed media paintings paired with her new body of video artwork. The simplicity of her work juxtaposed to the depth of concept that it carries exhibits an intriguing dichotomy. A solo show is a great opportunity to explore the more cerebral qualities of her body of work.
Opening Reception 8-10pm @ On Stellar Rays, 980 Madison Avenue, New York NY
Sunday, March 17th
In his first solo exhibition on NYC, painter Guy Ben-Ari intends to “examine the condition of image consumption as mediated through digital technology.” Essentially a study on the growing efficacy of being a digital voyeur, this show will cause viewers to take a look at themselves, and how we as a society continue to get better at being nosey as information travels faster.
Opening Reception 5-7pm @ Scaramouche Gallery, 52 Orchard Street, New York NY
So there you have it! This week you get a nice solid bit of variety: a chance to see fresh talent in the gallery scene, get weird with an introspective show, and address social change in another. There’s a little something for everybody! Enjoy your weekend NYC! Keep it artsy.
