Lucky Gallery Presents “Made in Red Hook”

From May 22nd to June 13th, Lucky Gallery is pleased to announce “Made in Red Hook”, a traditional salon exhibition by Red Hook artists Todd von Ammon, Laura Arena, Maria Baraybar, Andy Vernon-Jones, Christina Kelly, Heather Phelps-Lipton, Nate Luce, Rachel Mosler, L. Nichols, Julia Oldham, Anna Ortiz, Joshua Ray Stephens, Eric Taylor, Elizabeth Tomasetti, Tonky and Beriah Wall.

The concept behind the exhibition is to introduce to the public the wide range of artistic capabilities of local artists and to provide an atmosphere to encourage the exchange of ideas between artists and the public. The artists’ production is presented through different mediums including photography, drawing, video, book making, collage, painting, contemporary crafts and sculpture.

“Made in Red Hook” is curated by gallery director and participating artist Laura Arena and Ana Bogdanovic, who plan to transform Lucky Gallery into the traditional setting reminiscent of Salon de Paris, the annual public exhibition of the French Royal Academy in the 18th and 19th that displayed the actual artistic production and presented the city’s most established artists at the time.

Artists’ works will be exhibited floor-to-ceiling and the artists and visitors are invited to spend time in our seating area where there will be literary materials and videos to view.

“The mission of this exhibition is to make Lucky Gallery the center of artistic intellectual conversation in Red Hook”, says Bogdanovic. “Where artists and art spectators can share their artistic sensibilities as well as have insight in the local artist community.”

Exhibition Dates: May 22, 2010 – June 13th, 2010
Opening Reception: May 22, 7-10 PM
Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun 1-6 and by appt. only
Gallery Address: Lucky Gallery, 176 Richards Street, Brooklyn, NY. 11231

“Anatomically Incorrect” Opening Reception, Jan 16, 6-9PM

Anatomically Incorrect

Anatomically Incorrect

Saturday evening, January 16, from 6-9PM, Lucky Gallery is hosting an artist reception for the exhibition “Anatomically Incorrect” which is an an on-site collaborative drawing installation by Anastasia Akulinina/Kaerfkrahs, Brian Butler, Downer, Faro, Scott Ferguson, Fish McGill, Maxwell Piersol, Cardon Webb, and Eunjeong Yoo. “Anatomically Incorrect” exhibition runs January 16th to February 7th.

The artists chose to focus on anatomy, which is a concrete, organized system, which is in contrast to the chaotic/spontaneous process of this show – the end result leads to figures anatomically incorrect.

Working directly on the gallery wall each artist creates a visual conversation; the alchemy of characters, text, and pattern affecting how the mural expands as each artist works responsively to the other.

Food and drink will be provided.
