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?

“Arc Angle” Opening Reception, July 10, 7-10PM


Lucky Gallery invites you to Arc Angle opening reception July 10th, 7-10pm. Arc Angle is a full scale (floor-to-ceiling), atmospheric installation featuring the work of thirteen New York City based artists. The evening will include acoustic performances and special surprises and an opportunity to meet the artists.

The installation conveys the progressive nature of western technology juxtaposed with the organic world and the affect it has on today’s modern lifestyle. It questions the benefits and detriments of the Western world’s techno-scientific advancements in relation to the natural world. Presented in a lighthearted fashion, the installations borrow and relate to the pace, aesthetic and feel of contemporary Western media.

The installation includes sculpture, video, music, painting, poetry, and photography, from artists Benjamin Ayers, Jeremy Holmes, Michael Kondel, Emily Gosweiler, Timothy Shipman, Andrew Rowley, A.M. Breakups, Krystal Kaler, Claire Dickinson, Patrick Lamothe, Ani Sevag, Kelsey Bozler and Kipton Hinsdale. The installation transforms the Lucky Gallery space to create discussion within the community about the ongoing topic.

“Arc Angle” is directed and curated by Yagil, in collaboration with Amy Weng.

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

Lucky Gallery Welcomes Alexander Ellis – Event Photographer

Alexander Ellis

Alexander is a recent graduate of the George Washington University, where he was the photo editor of the independent college newspaper, the Hatchet. Here he developed his love and passion for photography and journalism. His favorite photographer is Henri Cartier-Bresson, the father of modern photojournalism.

When he is not shooting for Lucky Gallery, you can find him freelancing in the tri-state area and taking his dog on long walks.

Smile for Alexander at the next Lucky Gallery event (he most likely will be the guy with the biggest camera in the room)!
