Take a look at the latest posts that Samantha Levin has published up on the Creep Machine blog in the past few weeks.

Creep Machine:
Molly Crabapple and the 99%

Miz Molly Crabapple is a fancy burlesque delight, but is also politically active as fuck.  Living near Wall Street in NYC gave her 24 hour access to Occupy Wall Street.  To lend support, she did what she does best: draw.  As a continuation of The Creep’s initial post on OWS, I published some of what Molly did to support the uprising.

The Conjurer: JL Schnabel’s Mystical Collaboration

Anagnorisis Picks | April Flowers? by Binnorie

Again, there is simply too much going on to list, so here are a couple of the best exhibits we’re aware of!  If you missed my last set of picks, you can see it here – some of those shows are still up.

One, Tiny Trifecta, which includes a whole bunch of Anagnorisis friends, is about to open this coming Saturday the 9th.  Jeremy Hush, Paul Romano, Esao Andrews, Molly Crabapple, Seldon Hunt, Travis Louie, Angie Mason, Martina Secondo Russo, Adam Wallacavage, Chet Zar and a million billion others will have work on view.

But you should also get your butts down to Philly to see Paul Romano’s solo exhibit in Philly!

Paul Romano  |  Cross Section  |  Gallery 309

This is Gallery 309’s inaugural exhibit featuring old and new work of Paul’s.  His Houdini work pictured on the flyer above is one of his personal favorites – he’s quite enamored with the magician.  While the opening passed us by on April Fools Day, there will be another event in the space on April 15th and I’m hearing rumors about a closing party at the end of the month.

Gallery 309 is located in downtown Philly at 309 Cherry Street and is only open Friday through Sunday.    Click the flyer to go to the gallery site.

Jonathan Viner’s Computer Science and Elizabeth McGrath’s The Folly of St. Hubertus  |  Sloan Fine Art

Again, I’m posting this AFTER the opening, but honestly you don’t really see the art during such events.  It’s better that way, believe me.

Viner has been shown quite a few times in Alix’s project space.  It will be nice to see his work in the main gallery for a change.

I was hoping that McGrath was going to have a larger show, but from the look of things this little doe is sparkling in the project space all alone.  She’s gorgeous – I can’t wait to see her when I stop by tonight.  McGrath’s sculptures are the kind that don’t translate well in pictures.  It’s really necessary to see them in person.  Many of her works look messy, but the messiness is belied by how cohesive and well-constructed each work is, thus the messiness is part of the character of her works.  Her works are often obsessive in nature, which is impressive in and of itself.

Sloan Fine Art is located at 128 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

And, by the way, Dr. Sketchy’s is doing a Dr. Who tribute on Sunday April 10th with Jeffrey Garber as the Doctor and Someone’s Mrs. Reynolds as Amy Pond.

This fine drawing event will take place at The Bowery Poetry Club located at 308 Bowery in Manhattan.  Dr. Sketchy’s runs from 4-7pm. Bring your own art supplies. Tickets are $12 advance/ $15 at the door. Pre-orders close at 12pm the day of event.



Verge Art Brooklyn by Binnorie

Anagnorisis Fine Arts is very excited to be participating in its first art fair this coming season:  The inaugural Verge Brooklyn Art Fair!

In cooperation with the Brooklyn Art Project, Anagnorisis is co-curating a booth and will be including artists who both organizations have been working with for the past few years.

Our exhibiting artists will be Carrie Ann Baade, Christopher Conte, James Cospito, Molly Crabapple, Steve Ellis, Foon Foono, Caitlin Hackett, Jeremy Hush, Raghava KK and Ryan Ketchum.

In addition to original artwork, we’ll have prints for sale by many of those artists in addition to Teetering Bulb, Paul Romano and others.

We’ll be tweeting about the fair, so follow us and the Brooklyn Art Project to more easily find our booth.

Of course, on Friday night, March 4th, Anagnorisis won’t be manning the booth at the fair because we’ll be at the White Rabbit for Jeremy Hush’s solo exhibit A Curious Commotion. We’ve got DJ Mz. Margo back spinning for us and, if you’re really nice and show up early, I’ll give you a drink ticket…but you have to be nice.

Want to be on a preview list to have first dibs at the art?  Shoot us an email and let us know.

Verge has scheduled the hours of the fair very carefully, making it easy for art fair lovers to visit Brooklyn later on in the day after they’ve visited all the other art fairs in Manhattan.  Check this out:
