New Show at Spectrum 8

Why the sad face, Charlie? It is hard to believe it has been almost 8 months since the good people at Spectrum 8 Theatres offered me a spot, but here it is, a brand new photography exhibition open from February 23rd to April 5th, 2011. This series is a continuation of “The Unnoticed” collection, a small journey through abandoned memories of Upstate New York, on display last year at Uncommon Grounds. There are fewer pieces, a total of 8, hopefully ... Continue Reading

“Parade of Demons” at 182 River St.

“Parade of Demons” at 182 River St.

Found animal bones, recycled fur, air-dry clay, glue, watercolor... That's not what's for dinner, but the curious ingredients involved in Jennifer Farina's work. I checked her adorably creepy pieces back in October at “Parade of Demons”, a show on display 182 River St., Troy, NY. With a title and theme drawn from popular Japanese folklore (The Night Procession of a Hundred Demons) the exhibition included five American artists using a variety of mediums to create otherworldly creatures that entertain, frighten, ...

“Ordinary Things” at Carrie Haddad Photographs

Quick shout-out to Melissa Stafford, curator at the Carrie Haddad Photographs gallery in Hudson, NY. Kim, Laura, Bennett and myself stopped by last Saturday to check her new show, “ORDINARY THINGS: When artists make their private life public”, on display until December 12, 2010. This exhibition asks a simple question, “What is it like, living with a photographer?”, and brings captivating answers through works by David Lebe, Thatcher Keats, Sabine Delafon, Allyson Levy & Harry Wilks. This is an interesting ... Continue Reading

“Critical Stitch” at the Nott Memorial

“Critical Stitch” at the Nott Memorial

Do you often put “embroidery” and “subversive” in the same sentence? I didn't think so. Here is your chance though, and look not further than Schenectady, NY. A few weeks ago I checked “Critical Stitch” at the Mandeville Gallery in the Nott Memorial, on display until December 19, 2010. The show brings contemporary artists who incorporate sewing, embroidery, knitting, and other related techniques in works which critically examine a broad range of social and cultural issues. If the union between ... Continue Reading

New Show at the Waterford Public Library

The good folks at the Waterford Public Library are offering me the opportunity to show photos from October 14 to November 12, 2010. Library director Timothy McDonough is doing a fantastic job promoting the library and reaching out for new art regularly; I'm thankful for the chance to display my pictures outside Albany. This series of photos is different from the larger “The Unnoticed” collection, on display earlier this year at Uncommon Grounds. A few pieces are still related to ... Continue Reading

“Wish You Were Here” at the NYS Museum

This NYS Museum in Albany features a new exhibit entitled “Not Just Another Pretty Place: The Landscape of New York”. I recommend you check it out. The installation, on display from September 2010  to March 2011, explores the many ways the landscape of New York State has been recorded, romanticized, utilized, and imagined. It presents over 100 landscape scenes from the museum's own collections. One unique aspect of this exhibit is that you can be part of it, in a ... Continue Reading

Material World, Nimoy, Coyne and LeWitt at MASS MoCA

Material World, Nimoy, Coyne and LeWitt at MASS MoCA

Rain rain rain. Last Sunday was a great day to spend a few hours at MASS MoCA, one of my favorite art institutions within driving distance. The current exhibitions at The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art include work by Leonard Nimoy, Petah Coyne, Sol LeWitt & Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle to name only a few, though a couple of installations are worth the trip alone. I don’t think my English is good enough to articulate what I feel about modern art, but ... Continue Reading

“Heavy” at St. Joseph’s Church

Who knew St. Joseph's Church would turn out to be one of the largest art gallery in Albany? I paid a visit to “Heavy”, the latest show organized by The Marketplace Gallery and the Historic Albany Foundation at 38 Ten Broeck St., and brought back a slew of photos. “Heavy” is a multicultural arts and music event to benefit the restoration of St. Joseph’s Church. The three five-day show features about 40 artists, musicians, poets, and dancers showing and performing ... Continue Reading

This series of 30 photos was selected from my Urban Exploration collection, a small journey through abandoned memories of Upstate New York that I invite you to share with me. ... Continue Reading

Art Auction for Tess’ Lark Tavern

Art Auction for Tess’ Lark Tavern

One of my favorite place in Center Square, Tess' Lark Tavern, suffered a very serious fire a couple of weeks ago. Nobody got hurt, but it seems this pillar of Center Square will be closed for a while. Lark Tavern is one of the many reasons I bought a house in this neighborhood; I've many great memories of this place, shared with friends and foes. Tess Collins is well known to be one of the most generous person in this ... Continue Reading
