Red Hook Recovers / Resources for Donation and Support

Red Hook from kathryn schubert on Vimeo.

I am writing this post from Berlin, where I have been since September. I have a few weeks left before my return to Red Hook, Brooklyn where my home still does not have heat or electricity. I am overwhelmed by the aftermath of Sandy and the devastation and difficulties Red Hook faces in its clean up. I am humbled by the out pour of help but also have had difficulties of my own not being in Red Hook to share in this burden of return to normalcy.

What makes Red Hook so special and sets apart from other Brooklyn neighborhoods is the small businesses. These locally owned businesses not only provide exceptional services but also play a key component in the strength of our community. Lucky Gallery has been supported numerous times through the generosity of local businesses through sponsorship and donations for events and exhibitions.

As a small business owner in Red Hook I know how difficult it is to run a business in our little corner of the world and now this challenge has been increased seventh-fold. These small businesses have been financially hit hard since most are street and basement level localities and have suffered severe water damage as well as financial distress due to closure and lack of resources. If I can’t be there to help rebuild I want at least to provide a list of resources for those who are in close proximity that can lend a helping hand and for those who can’t a way to donate.

For all of those still experiencing difficulties with everyday challenges in Red Hook, my heart and thoughts are with you. In time this disaster will bring an already close-knit community even closer together.

DUMBO Arts Festival – Call for Artists

Lucky Gallery is looking for artists interested in participating in a mixed media installation in a shipping container for the DUMBO Arts Festival.

We are putting together a proposal and looking for artists whose work is photography based who are interested in the aesthetics of mixing environment and the medium.

Do you incorporate natural materials and or the environment into your process? Are your photographs also objects that reference a moment in time? Are you interested in creating an installation that is not only visual but tactical?

For more information about Dumbo Arts Festival http://unitedphotoindustries.com/foto-pods12.html

“Esprit de Corps” Pinata Party, F.I.T.

“Esprit de Corps” is a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art. A gift to the people of Berlin by our temporary collective “E.T.”, comprised of myself and six other contemporary multidisciplinary artists who united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. As part of our schedule of activities of Month of Performance Art, “Piñata Party” was held at freie internationale tankstelle.

Imagine your dream 8th birthday party. Your heart races with anticipation of the ensuing excitement to come. Piñatas, pin the tail on the donkey, birthday hats, balloons, confetti and colors everywhere, your sweetheart will be sitting across the table from you, your eyes locked. Ok, now blow everything up in scale and add some years, your wildest 8th birthday party fantasy has become reality. Welcome to piñata party. Piñata party included traditional american bbq, dj and live drawing.

“Esprit de Corps” Human Chain, Mauerpark Photos

“Esprit de Corps” is a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art. A gift to the people of Berlin by our temporary collective “E.T.”, comprised of myself and six other contemporary multidisciplinary artists who united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. As part of our schedule of activities of Month of Performance Art, “Human Chain” was held at Mauerpark.

A human chain is a form of demonstration in which people link their arms as a show of political solidarity. It may also refer to people holding on to each other in series to reach precarious spots. or it may also refer to people walking shoulder-to-shoulder in the event of searching for missing persons in water or on land. Our “Human Chain” was a form of solidarity between the artists in the collective and an opportunity to navigate precarious descent into the cavity of karaoke at Mauerpark.

“Esprit de Corps” Tug of War, Mauerpark Photos

“Esprit de Corps” is a series of events to promote, encourage and motivate all ages to become physically active as a means to participate in Art. A gift to the people of Berlin by our temporary collective “E.T.”, comprised of seven contemporary multidisciplinary artists who united forces ‘to take over the art scene’ in Berlin for a short moment of time. As part of our schedule of activities of Month of Performance Art, “Tug of War” was held at Mauerpark. The game “Tug Of War” is an inquiry of balance. It is an activity that posits an air of playfulness despite the name with its explicit reference to war– the intent is to reconsider the game in a different context.

Redesigning the game, and distancing it from the traditional aspects, it presents a visual discrepancy that is further complicated by the repositioning of the teams in relationship to each other. Traditional movement is eliminated by the implementation of pivoting devices, and no longer do teams remain equidistant and rather will be standing facing their opponents.
