Creativity Explored is a studio for for artists with developmental disabilities -
Nude figure drawing has been a staple of art education for
hundreds of years, but it was a definite first at this studio for artists
with developmental disabilities. In sessions with live professional art
models over several weeks, the artists worked on classic exercises for
drawing the human body. Many of the resulting charcoal and pen and ink
sketches will be on display and available for purchase.

When:Friday, January 12, 2007 At 07:00 PMWhere: Stay Gold Gallery (http://www.staygoldgallery.com/)451 Grand St. Brooklyn, NY
January 12th – February 11th, 2007
OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, January 12th, 2007, 7-10PM
Fusing together motifs of rebellion, solidarity, and endangered innocence, Stay Gold Gallery presents a new generation of visual artists in the first annual exhibition, "The Outsiders." Like the characters in the novel, these artists do not belong to the mainstream
Contemporary art scene and yet they are simultaneously bound by their outsider status.
Featured artist Mike Giant, who coincidentally owns an Albuquerque tattoo shop called
"Stay Gold," puts a contemporary spin on vintage pin-ups and other traditional tattoo
Also showing is Hisham Bharoocha, the ex-member of noise rock duo
Lighting Bolt and the experimental band, Black Dice. Hisham's photography and video
reflect both his RISD education and his outside-the-norm musical endeavors.
Kim Schifino, from the band Matt and Kim, exhibits linoleum and wood cut-outs that juxtapose everyday scenes with bored superheroes in a whimsical palette.
Nathan Gwynne works with a tension of opposites:
his assertive and rebellious characters embody the possibility of failure or dissolution at any moment.
The show features an open mix of media, including painting, drawing,
photography, video and installation.

Porn & Politics
Opening: January 18th - 6-8 PM
When Steve and I met he was carving tombstones to help pay tuition. He uses granite in his art. He isn't afraid of hard work, and paid some heavy dues to make it from his rural upbringing in West Virginia to live as an artist in NYC, and he remains one of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. . I wish I lived closer so I could attend this one.

Opening Reception Sat Jan 20 4-6pm
Gallery Talk Sat Feb 10 4pm w/ Mina Cheon & Gabriel Kroiz In Jarrett Davis’ jumbled, disorienting paintings, scarlet headed cranes share the stage with Korean pop stars, and the landscape is dotted with crumbling gothic ruins, Confucian temples, and surveillance cameras. Courtney Jordan’s paintings, meanwhile, have evolved from exquisitely balanced renderings of steel bridges and urban architecture to rigorous architectural drawings on mylar that are at once convincing and obviously unworkable. The two painters, who met in MICA’s Hoffberger program and live at The Patterson (Davis is part of CA’s Residency Program), exhibit together here for the first time, placing each other’s work in relief and suggesting new interpretations.
Davis’ postmodern pastiche—mixing contemporary icons and traditional imagery with Western and Eastern influences—reflects his attunement to latter-day global culture, as well as his dual identity as an Asian American. An accomplished practitioner of traditional techniques from alla prima oil painting to Dutch landscapes, he often combines several forms on the same canvas. He’s equally fascinated by Korea’s Choson dynasty and genderbending boy bands from Korean TV. By distorting scale and perspective, and generally eschewing a direct light source, the effect is flattening, as though all influences are equal in his imagination.
At first glance, Courtney Jordan’s bridge paintings are faithful renderings of glimpses from a commuter train, but they are also recombinations—multiple city views reworked digitally. Her drawings on mylar allow for invention, but maintain an aura of precision. She recalls early American modernists like Charles Sheeler, who were fascinated by industrial architecture and the rise of the skyscraper, but suggests a degree of anxiety—loneliness, even—that hadn’t caught up with her predecessors. In Jordan’s urban visions, the viewer remains detached—whether by a sheet of mylar or an implied window—from an “ideal city” with little room for the individual.

February 8 – March 3, 2007
Artist’s Reception: Thursday, February 22, 6-9 p.m.
My former classmate Alexi is a 27 year old 2004 Fullbright Scholar who uses nails to "paint" portraits.
Alexi is also a musician and filmmaker, his work centers on
"... his Brazilian and European lineage and his experiences growing up in Paris
amongst his peers of African, Arab and Caribbean descent. His images in
video, photography and mixed media using wood, canvas and installations,
reflect his graphic and bold approach to social, religious and political
commentary through art. "Hopefully the jarring juxtapositions in my work
will catch the viewer’s attention, and cause them to ask themselves
questions about the issues facing marginalized populations not only in
France, but throughout the world," says Peskine.
Drawing inspiration from his paternal grandfather, a Jewish resistor who
survived a German concentration camp, to his maternal grandfather, a
woodworker who lived in the favelas of Salvador, Bahia, to the loving
marriage of his own Franco-Russian father and Afro-Brazilian mother,
Peskine challenges his audience with provocative, cynical and sometimes
earnest takes on serious subjects. Much of his work also celebrates family,
friends and the beauty and humor of solitary inanimate objects.

DC Arts Center
2438 18th Street NW
Washington DC 20009
Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Sunday 2 - 7 pm
The Jolly Cowboy curated by Cara Ober
Exhibition Dates: March 16 - April 16

COWBOY ATTIRE ENCOURAGED!!
Featuring the work of:
Laurence Arcadias, Julie Benoit, Zoe Charlton, Billy Colbert, Rob Sparrow Jones, Charnan Lewis, Lump
Lipshitz, Jack Livingston, Baby Martinez, Lauren Schott, Rene Trevino, Elena Volkova
"If the taming of the Wild West is our nation’s legend, the central character is the cowboy. More myth
than history, the cowboy’s identity varies wildly. From outlaw to hero, from cattle rustler to gunslinger, from drunkard to sheriff, his mystery, his bravery, and his autonomy remain constant. Visual artists from different nationalities, backgrounds, ages, and sensibilities create a complex and contradictory image of this character and with it, an exploration of American identity and individualism." - Cara Ober
Four friends are in this show, Rene Travino, Rob Jones, Lauren Schott and Charnan Lewis.
Texas Rangers by Rene Travino:
Amirillo by Morning: Rob Sparrow Jones:
Sorry, I don't know what Charnan or Lauren will have at the show.

Okay, here's my friend Alexis again ... Fullbright scholar and native of Brazil, speaks five languages - plus digital :devilzide makes music and music videos and now has a solo art show at an emerging NYC Museum.
Alexis, who lived in Paris before we met, is funny & quite urbane - he rocks at parties ! One evening Alexis, 6'3" cafe au lait, and totally pimped out in a white three-piece suit and gold "grill" and with three honey toned ladies to sing - he "passed" as an urban American black rap star - and it was hilarious!
His latest work is on French racial politics (he was in Paris during the latest riots) and called The French Evolution.
Alexis has invited us to his latest exhibition:
it is my pleasure to invite you to the opening of my first solo show in a
New York museum Friday May 25 from 6 to 9pm.
"The French Evolution" tackles France's racial dynamics. You can find
further information on the museum's website at www.mocada.org (http://www.mocada.org)
Do not hesitate to come with friends to this social event where you will
find interesting personalities gathered around dynamic works and
installations, not to mention music, tasty appetizers and drinks and even

Lizzy Rides Again!
Like the Spice Gallery Celebrates One Year With Most Triumphant: Paintings by Liz Brown
June 22 – August 5th 2007
Gallery Anniversary and Opening Friday June 22, 6:30–10PM
Like the Spice is proud to present Most Triumphant: Paintings by Liz Brown, opening Friday June 22nd in conjunction with the celebration of its one-year anniversary. Time freezes and history sits silent in this collection of majestically deadpan paintings. Building on her successful first New York solo show at Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts in Chelsea this exhibition features work from several new series.
Ms. Brown’s recent paintings troll the shallow pool of memory to see if we really catch much in our day-to-day experience. Dinosaurs, battleships, miraculous vans, an indoor undersea paradise, and a machine with all the answers populate this exhibition. Ships stage epic battles against a vast and empty ocean. Vans make Duke’s of Hazard style jumps and drift off towards heaven. Natural and artificial histories battle each other in chilly silence. Even the forest seems air-conditioned as painted by Brown. The once and future king of the thunder lizards, deposed, stands watch over his diorama.
These epics flattened onto canvas refuse to have their grandiosity distilled out of them, retaining all the resonance of echoes. To make immemorial the victors of nature and society, and transmute them into living fossils Brown edits out the cobwebs. As George Bernard Shaw said, ”If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you’d best teach it how to dance.”
Liz Brown has shown in California, Maryland, Connecticut and New York. She has been included in three previous group shows at Like the Spice. In 2005 she was a Space Program recipient of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library Print Collection, the Connecticut Commission on the Arts and the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport Connecticut. She earned her MFA from the Mount Royal Graduate Program at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004. Since then she has taught at the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel, Maryland and at Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington DC. Currently Liz lives and maintains her studio in Brooklyn, NY.
