The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art presents ARTISM: The Art of Autism. Based on the book ARTISM by Debra Hosseini, who curated this show, the exhibit uses the unique capabilities of the gallery to feature hundreds of pieces including works by Temple Grandin and dozens of other creators with autism from around the world. The exhibit opens an incredible doorway into the imaginative worlds of people with Autism. All gallery proceeds from sale of prints of the works will go to the Reach for the Stars Learning Center for Autistic Children in Brooklyn, NY.
Microscope Gallery is very pleased to announce CURRENT ELECTRIC, the debut of new electric paintings and video by artist, videomaker & photographer Anton Perich in Bushwick. The bold and haunting series of acrylic on canvas portraits, nudes and abstract paintings are the result of decades of fine-tuning and experimentation with Perich’s mechanized painting machine, an invention he built in 1977, and of which Andy Warhol declared in his diaries that he was jealous. Opening Sunday, June 12, 6 - 9 PM

The New York Times’ Critic Benjamin Genocchio wrote on March 5, 2009: “Among other outstanding photographs are Aimee Hertog’s wickedly funny ‘Hampton Fun v. Iowa Flood,’ in which the artist has digitally collaged imagery of people swimming in the Hamptons into flooded urban landscape scenes from Iowa. The juxtaposition is so incongruous and silly that you can’t help but laugh.” The article pertains to the show at City Without Walls in Newark.

This exhibition brings together three artists whose work inhabits a delicate grey area between factual imagery, subjective recall, and painterly interaction. We all see what we want to in a work of art, whether it is violence, landscape, still life, or abstraction. The visceral materiality of paint can convey a multitude of developing possibilities whilst avoiding specific depiction. It is relatively simple for a work of art to have definitive intentionality. It is quite another thing to be ambiguous without ambivalence.
After eight years of trying to get the Community Board to support the historic iron sculptures created by Bob Bolles in the 1960's, which were implanted in the asphalt in SoHo, we gave up. The SoHo Arts Council was formed primarily with the idea in mind that guerrilla art in all of its forms needed to be preserved. As part of this effort, about 10 years ago, photographs of all of the street art Downtown was cataloged and maintained for the benefit of art historians.
