"UP FROM THE DEEP" opens July10th at 7 P.M with Dennis Karagovalis providing live music. "Up From the Deep" is an exhibit of 15 artists who probe the fathoms of memory, dreams, myth and states of being. The show ranges from photography to mixed media, fabric sculptures, and good old colored pigment smeared on flat surfaces. Jeff Faerber has curated the exhibition. It runs through August 25. Daily from 12-8.
Guest curator Jeff Faerber includes 14 talented artists and, in an act of shameless nepotism, himself . The Brooklyn artists are Jeff Faerber, Andrew Smenos , and Rusty Zimmerman. From Manhattan Fedele Spadafora and Zoë Williams. Ipek Sen lives in Astoria. And Rupa DasGupta and Buddy Nestor(NJ), Barron Storey (SF),Timothy Wilson (Portland, Maine) Lars Henkel, (Köln, Germany), David Hollenbach (Philadelphia), Reuben Negron (CT), Jeremy Holmes (Ithaca, NY) and Victoria Selbach (Long Island.)
The subterranean themes explored are the ocean's depths by Rupa "an-Octopus-a-Day" DasGupta, memories of childhood in the iconography of Andrew Smenos, the subconscious dreams and internal mythology of both Zoë Williams and Lars Henkel, and whatever Buddy Nestor pulls up from the twisted depths of his head.
