Last evening was the Greenpoint Gallery 2016 Holiday Art Salon, a one night art exhibit and live music event held in a spacious 2 floor converted industrial space. Tucked away by the Pulaski Bridge at the tip of Brooklyn, Greenpoint Gallery had nearly every inch of wall covered with an impressive display of talent from local visual artists.
Accompanying the eclectic mixture of artworks were 7 musical acts, ranging from singer songwriters to boisterous party rock. Philly based RFA put on an impressive and genuine performance, getting even my grandma to come out of the lounge and dance to the well-crafted melodies and rhythm.
Turnout for the event was positive, given the freezing temperatures and impending snow – the main gallery space remained full the entire evening. I had a lot of company from my fiancée, family, and friends who I would like to thank greatly for showing their support. Special shoutout to Gunner Tierno and Art-Itecture for making it! I’m also very pleased to mention that two out of five pieces sold last night.
A week ago I had been sifting through the New York Foundation for the Arts opportunity board (a great resource for any creative residing in NY), and found the galleries open call for submissions. Eager to get my work out into the world after recently revamping my portfolio, I submitted five photographs from my series Pantomime Part One.
2 days before the show I received a personalized email from the gallery curator Shawn, congratulating me on my acceptance to the show. I was thrilled and humbled by the opportunity, especially given that I’d only been back in New York for a little over a week. Immediately I reached out to Alkit Pro Lab in Freeport, NY, to have my photographs printed. Not only were they extremely accommodating to my rushed production time, but also made stunning fine art prints for me to frame.
Before dropping off my finished pieces, I had a little fun putting together a promotional photo for the show. Pictured in the image below from left to right: Memorialization, Awaken, Frozen Inception, Except, and Fracture of Fear.
Again I would like to extend my gratitude to Greenpoint Gallery for allowing me to participate in their awesome and inspiring event, and to everyone who came out to support me last night.
If you are interested in any of the work from the gallery exhibit or my portfolio, please feel free to contact me directly for fine art prints and custom framing. I also have a convenient online store that accepts all major credit cards, along with PayPal.
