In the midst of my ongoing search to find places to feature my work, I came across an awesome opportunity from a current member of the Artspace @ Patchogue. If you are not familiar with it, Artspace, is an organization that sets up buildings and provides affordable living and work spaces for artists. They have made it possible for many artists to form and take part in a community of their peers at 35 different locations across the country.
One of their members, Rich Belsky, is graciously using his association with the space to showcase a variety of Long Island artists’ work for the UGLY show. The purpose of the show in his words is, “to explore ‘UGLY’ as a dynamic force, integral to any creative process, and the role it has played from the past to the present as well as it may play in the future. Artwork for ‘UGLY’, as it relates to either the individual or to society, in part or in whole.”
Beginning on August 1st, my piece #BLEAH, pictured below, will be hanging alongside many other artists’ work from around the area. The show will run for two weeks, ending on the 15th.
the UGLY Reception will be held:
Saturday, August 1st from 5 – 8 pm
20 Terry Street Patchogue, New York
Gallery Hours – Thursdays & Fridays 5:30-8:30pm Saturdays & Sundays 1-4pm
