ART GALLERY OPENING: INTERPRETING the UNSEEN - Selected works from Amanda Barrow, April DeMarco and Keryn Huang - New York Open Center Gallery
Through March 31, 2012 - NY

ART GALLERY OPENING: INTERPRETING the UNSEEN Selected works from Amanda Barrow, April DeMarco and Keryn Huang Curated by Lola C. Shepard Opening Reception: Saturday, March 03, 2012 6:00- 8:00 PM On View: March 03 - March 31, 2012 Gallery Hours: Mon – Sun / 10-6 pm New York Open Center Gallery is pleased to present Interpreting the Unseen, a collaborative exhibition featuring contemporary artists Amanda Barrow, April DeMarco and Keryn Huang. Interpreting the Unseen is an homage to the consciousness of all things. Utilizing the mediums of painting, collage and photography, each artist explores, through her artwork, the subtle energies of the human experience and the invisible life force of the world around us. Inspired by her travels to India, Amanda Barrow’s Chakra Series illustrates her personal interpretation of the chakra system; the focal points for the reception and transmission of energies in our bodies. The Transparency Series is a celebration of the inner power of all women. The layering of textiles signifies a woman’s innate ability to beautify, conceal, reveal, protect and heal. April DeMarco’s paintings are guided solely by her intuition. Her abstract imagery communicates ideas of letting go, following our path and purpose, and the attainment of our full potential. Keryn Huang’s photography evokes the contemplative expressiveness of the rural landscape. The atmospheric, ethereal sceneries chronicle the transitory movement of clouds, the waning light of the oncoming night, the experiential changes of the seasons and most importantly, one’s reverence and intimate connection to the environment.

Chris Cosnowski - Lyons Wier Gallery
Through March 31, 2012 - New York

Chris Cosnowski “American Metal” March 1 – 31, 2012 Artists’ Reception: Thursday, March 1, 2012 (6-8pm) Nearest subway: C,E @ 23rd St & 8th Ave Trophies have played a critical role throughout history. Beneficiaries of these awards take pleasure in receiving them, not because the trophy has monetary value, but because it symbolizes success. Those that win them cherish the satisfaction and legacy that is associated with it, and revel within the symbolism of the prize itself, victory. Trophies are, and will continue to remain, a visible goal to which any competitor is geared, and harbor the unspoken sacrifices that victory so often demands. In American Metal, artist Chris Cosnowski utilizes and exploits the intrinsic value and symbolism of these treasured keepsakes. His paintings envision a nostalgic no-holds-barred America. The works allude to the idealism of American values, yet somehow the narratives speak volumes about shifting ideals via the represented objects. What appears to be solid and significant is trumped by the discovery that the metal is an illusion. These beloved objects aren’t gold but merely spray plated plastic with no real weight - an apt metaphor for a country in economic turmoil due to its gratuitous and gluttonous pursuit of all that glitters. Cosnowski's figurines exemplify different aspects of American society: the rodeo trophies illustrate our romanticized past and the wild west in all its rugged testosterone-soaked glory; the cheerleaders embody an obsession with sports, beauty and social standing; the motocross continues the sports metaphor and also typifies America’s love for speed, daredevils and gasoline; the bodybuilder pokes fun at the prevailing image of the country as mighty and heroic and evaluates its preoccupation with and perception of physical beauty; and the policeman, whereby the artist states, “I used this imagery to represent the need for excessive security just to live ‘freely’ today.” The artist goes on to say, “America is ostensibly a meritocracy, and I think we can all agree that hard work, talent, creativity and integrity should be rewarded. American exceptionalism, however, seems to have been largely replaced with greed and a craving for celebrity. American metal (mettle) used to mean something solid.” Chris Cosnowski received his MFA in Painting from Northwestern University and his BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, OH.

AEA Approved Showcase. *Member, Actors’ Equity Association. When forced to move back in with his parents, Eddie seeks the guidance of a fortune teller, whose mysterious and shocking counsel isn't quite what he was expecting. The Empress and El Diablo follows Eddie Roberts, through dreams and reality, as he valiantly struggles with his horrifying destiny, his overbearing family, and a girlfriend who's too tired to fool around. Inspired by Oedipus Rex, the writings of C.G. Jung, and the Tarot Marseilles, this production marks Toy Box Theatre Company’s tenth season. The Empress and El Diablo will be performed with a live garage rock score by Colonna Sonora. From playwright and director Jonathan Barness: “Deep down, most of us think we're a little bit special; that our true destiny is fame and fortune. But let's face it, with 6 billion of us, that’s just not true. The Empress and El Diablo imagines a world where psychics and psychiatrists tell the truth. "You will become a crazy cat lady," "your spouse will cheat on you, repeatedly," or "most of your friends think you are annoying" are phrases rarely heard in fortune cookies and Tarot readings. But in the end, it's only the truth that will lead to change.” The Empress and El Diablo is produced by Toy Box Theatre Company.

Greg Haberny 'Prelude to Mommy's Little Monster' - Lyons Wier Gallery
Through March 31, 2012 - New York

Meet The Artist: Saturday, March 10th, 2012, 12-2pm. Gallery Hours: Tues - Sat, 11-6pm. Nearest subway: C,E @ 23rd St & 8th Ave. Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to feature a special installation in the back gallery space by New York artist Greg Haberny entitled Mommy's Little Monster. The presentation is a prelude to his forthcoming solo exhibition at Lyons Wier Gallery this October. Mommy's Little Monster is a psychedelic glimpse into the wonderfully psychotic world of installation artist Greg Haberny. This particular installation draws direct inspiration from the artist's personal recollections of his childhood. The artist exhumes and examines his "'dysfunctional'" childhood, embracing the plethora of influences from his teen years growing up in suburbia during the 1970-80s. Haberny brutishly expresses his observations by constructing three dimensional metaphors dealing with his own personal issues, including but not limited to: chaos, disorder, anxiety, imperfection, awkwardness, madness, punk rock, guns, attending Catholic school, porn, drinking, drugs, excessive therapy, his cat that his brother shot, dyslexia, isolation, baseball, rabbits, hallucinations, abuse, sinner vs saint, Martin Scorsese, independent cult film, toys, AND girls, girls...GIRLS!
