Okay, I’m guilty, even before we get started, but I am an artist, and sometimes we are shameful self-promoters.
For those of you living outside The City, the first Thursday in each month is known as Gallery Crawl. Most galleries in the area open their doors, provide offerings of cheese and wine, and promote their latest exhibits to the world. It is a fun evening for the serious buyer or the casual observer who just wants the free wine.
Thursday, August 2 is my turn to participate. I have eight pieces appearing in a show, Expressions of Life, at the Montserrat Contemporary Art Gallery in Chelsea. For me, this is a big event.
Montserrat Contemporary Art Gallery opened in Soho in 1989, across from the New Museum. In 2005 the gallery moved to its current location, 547, W. 27th street in Chelsea where it shares a building with a collection of galleries.
My work is photography based digital art. Most are compiled from dozens of photographs and combined with additional colors and textures.
If you are in the area I hope you will drop by between 6:00-8:00, if for nothing more than the cheese and wine. – JAM
