Inaugural Group Show at Unisex Salon

I'm proud to be a part of the inaugural exhibition of Unisex Salon...

We are pleased to announce a new collective space, Unisex Salon.  Taking our name from the business that previously occupied the storefront, we are using the salon, in the art historical sense, as a model for the space. The complete conceptual and structural armature of this endeavor is still in progress, but we hope to create a space for conversation and community.

With this in mind, we invited a group of artists to join this conversation with us, and present incomplete works from their studios.  In the Works includes pieces by Eric Ashcraft, Ben Thorp Brown, Emmy Catedral, Oasa DuVerney, Melisa Hopson, Kricket Lane, Phi Nguyen, Shawn Powell, James Powers, Sophia Rauch, Winslow Smith, Quintin Rivera-Toro, and Adrienne Tarver.

Please join us Sunday, April 3rd, 2-6pm at 133 Manhattan Ave for unfinished art in an unfinished space.

Yours truly,

Jonathan Elliott, Brian Hubble, Sean Ward, Annie Wischmeyer

Solo show at BRIC Arts Media

I’m happy to announce my upcoming solo show, Eavesdropping, at BRIC Project Room in downtown Brooklyn next month. I invite you to join me for the opening reception. 

Opening reception: Thursday, March 10 from 6 - 9 pm

Exhibition open March 1 - 27, 2016 from 10am - 6pm daily (except Mondays)

Video portion projected as part of Garage Door Video series from Feb. 29 - Mar. 16

Interested in exploring the notions of insider, outsider and the other, artist Adrienne Elise Tarver will create an installation to exploit our curiosity of what’s within the barriers and question what is gained (and at the same time lost) once we’ve looked inside. She does this with both large scale video projections and a miniature model home, to explore the life of a woman from an old photograph she found in a thrift store. Young, black, and female, wearing glasses and facing the camera, Tarver was enticed by her anonymity, and built a story about the woman, starting with her home and finding the narrative as the pieces came together.

New York state of mind

I'm excited to say that I will be leaving Sydney for a bit. I've been accepted to the The League Residency at Vyt in Sparkill, NY with a Distinguished Artist Scholarship for an 8 week residency starting this September. Click here to learn more about Vyt.

It will be nice to spend some time on the Hudson, but also have easy access to the city.

They host Open Studio events once a month and provide a free shuttle from NYC to the residency. More news on exact dates and shuttle times for Open Studios as the date approaches.
