Remembering the ‘Forgotten City’

67westbrooklyn:

imagean upper floor of the “chicken building” 60 West St.

An article by Elizabeth Flock was published today on Bedford + Bowery exploring the amazing and tragic history of 67 West St. Flock also begins to tease out some of the murkiness surrounding the future of 67 West. It is a really interesting look into this building inside of which so many people make a living and a life.

OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JAN. 17th, 7:30-10:30pmEXHIBITION DATES: JAN. 17 - 19, 2014
AxcessArt, a curatorial project from Vanessa Fernandez and Jerry Gomez, is pleased to present NONOTAK NEW YORK, a collaborative and immersive installation by the French duo Noémi Schipfer and Takami Nakamoto, known as NONOTAK.
NONOTAK’s installations obscure their method of construction, creating ethereal and dreamlike environments that envelope the viewer in space and light.  Spectators are encouraged to touch, walk into, and submerge themselves in the altered and otherworldly environments created. Wired.com has described NONOTAK’s installations as making the viewer “lose all sense of space” and “ultimately breaking the audience from reality.” Each installation is site-specific. For this New York exhibition, NONOTAK will also present ten mixed-media pieces that are a conceptual intersection of traditional 2D works and installation. NONOTAK is the collaboration of artist/illustrator, Noémi Schipfer, and architect/musician Takami Nakamoto.  What began as an exploration of the relationship between space and light with little attachment to the end product has developed into a full-blown installation-based collaboration creating controlled sound and light environments in which viewers can fully interact with the work.  A true collaboration, NONOTAK draws on and incorporates the strengths of its two collaborators.  As an illustrator, Noémi Schipfer brings with her an interest in kinetic visuals—how visual movement can be generated with lines and primitive geometry.  As an architect and musician, Takami Nakamoto approaches sounds as space and vice versa.
Please join us for NONOTAK NEW YORK’s opening reception on Friday, Jan. 17th from 7:30 to 10:30pm. The exhibiton will be on view from Jan. 17-19, 2014, and Fowler will hold extended gallery hours that weekend on Saturday from 12-5pm and on Sunday from 12-6pm.

Fowler Nation: Kate Nielsen

Talented Fowler studio artist, Kate Nielsen, was recently featured in a New York Times article about the new Art Marketplace section on Amazon.com. Check out that awesome photo of Kate in her (Fowler!) studio! Here is the full article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/01/arts/design/art-collections-a-click-away.html?smid=pl-share

Kate will be in a three person show at Calico Gallery opening Fri., Oct. 11th from 7-9pm. “Calico is pleased to present Crowd Control, a three person exhibit featuring recent works by Kirkland Bray, Kate Nielsen, and James Ulmer.”

67 West St., #206
Brooklyn, NY 11222

Opening Reception: Friday, Sept. 13 from 6-9pmExhibition Dates: Sept. 13 - Oct. 7, 2013
Exhibiting Artists: Elana Alder, Ranya Asmar, Cameron Bishop, Robert Bruderman, Calum Craik, Abby Duncan, Elizabeth Grammaticas, Tom Henry, Lucia Hinojosa, Chris Hood, Zenia Jaeger, Tommy Kwak, Aaron Maier, Sean McElroy, Kate Nielsen, Yuko Oda, Nicole Savoy, Wade Schaming, Julie Schneider, Candice Strongwater, and James Vanderberg.
Fowler Project Space is pleased to present All Together Now, an exhibition of talented artists from the studios that form Fowler Arts Collective investigating what it means to work in a collective today. The work presented in All Together Now is self-revelatory and aims to give our audience and ourselves a better understanding about what we make, why we make it, and how working in a shared space might influence our work. Artist-run collectives and galleries are an important part of the art-world ecosystem in New York City. Perhaps in reaction to more commercially driven “white-box” galleries, artist-run spaces offer artists an alternative, more self-directed path to making and showing work while figuring out how to survive this city. By choosing to present individually created work in the same collective space, this exhibition considers whether the work we present exists in some collective consciousness. We ask how this space binds us together or keeps us separate.
Please join us for the opening reception of All Together Now on Friday, Sept. 13th from 6-9pm. The opening takes place during a neighborhood wide event, Greenpoint Gallery Night, during which 12+ galleries will hold receptions during the same late hours.

EXHIBITION OPENING: Friday, Sept. 7th from 7-10pm
Fowler Arts Collective is pleased to present Odd Job, an exhibition of new work by artists Ted Carey, Jacob Goudreault, and Simon Slater. Painting in the 21st century is an odd job. With no rules or boundaries, how does one beat a path to new possibilities? Each exhibiting artist addresses this question in their own way, but shares an underlying strategy of poking around in little-noticed or neglected corners of painting culture.
Manipulating painting language with materials only occasionally including paint, Ted Carey melds painting and sculptural traditions to exploit and question our cognitive tic of finding representation in abstraction. Jacob Goudreault’s work addresses the painting support and its construction, redirecting our attention backward to focus on the process that precedes what we traditionally conceive as creative activity. Uber-Modernist critic Clement Greenberg believed each artistic medium was evolving toward an ultimate purity, and in Simon Slater’s work this vision achieves its absurdist apotheosis. Slater eliminates the use of any support, inventing methods to make paintings composed purely of paint.
For more information on the exhibition and to read the full exhibition essay by Daniel Gerwin, please go to: http://www.fowlerartsbrooklyn.org/OddJob.html
Please join Fowler for the opening reception of Odd Job on Friday, Sept. 7th from 7-10pm. The exhibition can be viewed on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-6pm and by appointment. The exhibition runs from Sept. 7 to 30, 2012.
Fowler is located in the historic Greenpoint Terminal building on the East River waterfront in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The closest subway is the Greenpoint Ave. G train stop. Our address is: 67 West Street, Unit 216, Brooklyn, NY 11222.
This exhibition is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC).

Exhibition Dates: October 14-30, 2011Opening Reception: Friday, Oct. 14th from 6 to 9pm
Fowler Arts Collective is pleased to present The Pinch, in  which three local artists share  their attempts to articulate something  about the value of art in a time of economic hardship. Featuring recent  bodies of work by Kurt Freyer, Elizabeth Hoy, and Emilie Selden, The Pinch explores the way material transformation in an art world setting can  alter the value of very modest objects. Working playfully and with  limited means, these artists take trash, recycling, and unwanted objects  and turn the dispensable into an art commodity. 
Kurt  Freyer’s work takes discarded technology and trash and transforms it  into his vision of post-apocalyptic nature. His practice is a sort of  alchemy: in his work, CD jewel-cases and beer cans transform into  post-apocalyptic mineral deposits or miniature cliff formations. In her  Craigslist Series, Elizabeth Hoy looks at what New Yorkers are giving  away on Craigslist, and then collects, paints, and draws from the  objects they post. Her series is a study in these tenuous shifts in  value—from person to person, and from natural to man-made. Over the last  two years, Emilie Selden has literally been making money. At a time  when the line between illusion and reality in the American marketplace  is often unclear, her work looks at the difference (or lack thereof)  between a piece of paper, a dollar bill, and a painting.
Please  join us for The Pinch’s opening reception on Friday, Oct. 14th from 6-9  pm. The exhibition will be on view weekends (Sat. + Sun.), 12 to 6pm,  from October 14th to 30th, 2011. During other times, the exhibition can  be viewed by appointment. 
In addition to the exhibition’s  opening event on October 14th, there will be a reading organized by Luke  Degnan of BOMB Magazine on Friday, Oct. 21st from 7-10pm in the Fowler  gallery. The reading of poetry and short fiction will feature writers  Paul Legault, B.C. Edwards, and others.
