Mermaid Parade 2013



Great parade this year. We went to check out all the great costumes and of course the new "comfort stations" which replaced the old ones destroyed by Sandy.

From the Archives 1: The “Objects of Desire” Years 



Opens: Thursday, June 13, from 6 to 8:30pm at Jalopy Gallery in Red Hook, Brooklyn. 



Schnore’s portraits fuse the sensuous curves of burlesque dancers with those of vintage and exotic musical instruments. The work builds on an earlier series featuring instruments, and now incorporates Schnore's two-year project creating portraits of the Lovely Ladies of Sugar Shack Burlesque posed in pinup style with and without instruments. Shot in black-and-white and color, in both digital and film, and printed in various sizes, the portraits convey Schnore’s eye for composition, textures and smartly sexualized imagery.


Liz Schnore is a Brooklyn-based artist and musician with a passion for photography.
Schnore's interest in music has a deep heritage. The daughter of internationally renowned barrelhouse pianist and blueswoman, the late Ann Rabson, Schnore grew up around art, performance, traditional music and fine musical instruments in Virginia.
She holds a MA in studio art with a focus in fine art photography from NYU-Steinhardt, a certificate in photography and digital imaging from Pratt Institute and a BFA degree in sculpture and art history from
Virginia Commonwealth University.

On view June 9-July 31.

Location: Jalopy Gallery 315 Columbia Street Red Hook, Brooklyn

The Ungovernables

Another exhibit recommendation. I think everyone making art in 2012 should see this exhibit. So many ideas and directions to go. Themes of space and physics, ideology and revolution, decay and renewal.

Smoking

Seems like all the clubs we've been going to lately are underground clubs which allow smoking and geez why? I love hearing music and seeing all the DIY projects but it makes me want to rant.
