Lucky Gallery and Ventiko Host “Animamus Art Salon”


Lucky Gallery is extremely excited to work with artist/curator Ventiko in hosting an Animamus Art Salon at the Schoolhouse artist collective at 330 Ellery Street in Brooklyn, on April Fools Day, 2012, 7 – 11pm.

Created by Ventiko in 2011, Animamus provides a safe, supportive environment for artists of all mediums to debut and discuss their current work while encouraging audience participation. These monthly traveling salons create temporary communities where artists can exchange ideas amongst the peers and the public in NYC.

“This is the first time Lucky Gallery is hosting an event outside of its home of Red Hook, Brooklyn,” says Laura Arena, Director of Lucky Gallery. “We are very excited to showcase gallery artists at Ventiko’s Animamus Art Salon with our friends the Schoolhouse in Bushwick because we all share similar passion to provide a supportive venue for artists to share creativity and ideas.”

Animamus Art Salon will feature the work of twelve artists, Karla Carballar, Andy Cavatorta & Mihaeko, TJ Hospodar, Jason Martin, Tessa Mauclere, Kathryn Moise, Mariette Papic, Max Piersol, and Justin Orvis Steimer including a performance by The Push Pops, a radical, queer feminist art collective, and an interactive performance by artist Laura Lee Gulledge.

Animamus Artist Salon this month takes place at the Schoolhouse, originally P.S. 52, a three-story live/work space in Bushwick. It is a venue for a wide variety of musical performances, art exhibitions, photo shoots and film projects and has been a home to artists since 1996.

Please join us on April Fools Day with performances and presentations from 7-11pm. Cost of admission is $10 and drinks will be available. We thank our sponsors Hi! Prosecco and Sixpoint Brewery.

Event Date and Time: Sunday, April 1, 2012, 7-11pm
Location: The Schoolhouse, 330 Ellery Street, Brooklyn, NY.
Event Cost: $10

Karla Carballar
was born in Mexico City. Her work in video, photography and installation has been exhibited in the US, Mexico, Asia and Europe, including Today Art Museum, Beijing; Luigi Pecci Center for Contemporary Art, Bienal de Yucatán, Mexico; and the Encuentro Nacional de Arte Joven, a year traveling exhibition around Mexico.

Andy Cavatorta is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the dark territory of human potential that lies just beyond the reach of imagination. Andy has partnered with Ensemble Robot and produced dynamic experimental musical instruments that challenged concepts of musical invention. After studying at MIT’s Media Lab (2008-10) he spent eighteen months in collaboration with Björk and created pendulum-based Gravity Harps, which can be seen and heard in her current residency Biophilia.

TJ Hospodar was born in Ohio and currently resides in New York. His primary passions are photography and performance. He is interested in the norms found within gift economies and hospitality and tourist-versus-neighbor relations. He can be found operating his car service, often free, here in the USA, which he will present during the salon.

Jason Martin works in new media and will present a series under the general title POWER ANIMALS. This work engages species-queer, glamorous, and paganistic animism. With it, he explores power structures, species and gender hybridity, witchcraft, military conflict, rock music, pre-history, and analog electronics through rituals in bright spandex to open portals, utilizing a range of tools from electronics to wrestling holds.

Tessa Mauclere
has lived and worked in New York City for the past three years and accumulates experience in various forms while finding her freedom of artistic expression to be muted by the challenge of survival. Late night collages, illustrations and secret archiving of documents meant to be thrown away become manifestations of what she calls this art of necessity where the lack of inspiration inspires.

Mihaeko is a versatile artist whose work combines the mundane with the poetic. Focusing on intimate aspects of silence and gesture, her work is often imbued with dreamy, lyrical overtones or comedic bits of absurdism that render her pieces at once surreal and profoundly personal.

Kathryn Moise is organized. She has developed a keen sense of evaluating what others need and carefully and efficiently executes solutions to make life easier and will be sharing her advice on how artists can simplify and organize their lives to get stuff done faster and more effectively.

Mariette Papic is a writer and photographer, the author of the chapbook, “Electric Bathtub Psalms” and essays on graffiti and culture, including “The Ache of The Real” (Pantheon Projects). She is a contributor to the Interview Blogazine, and 12Questions.us. She is an avid dreamer and traveler, exploring new forms of memoir and currency in a sphere inhabited by her alter ego, “Ruby Gold”.

Max Piersol is an artist from Red Hook, Brooklyn who has been working in visual art, film making and acting since 1997. He specializes in stencil work and painting, and is inspired by stoke, living in New York and avoiding schoolwork. Max was in “Anatomically Incorrect”, a street-art based collaborative show at Lucky Gallery, and has also written “A Hairy Situation”, which won several awards in 2009.

Justin Orvis Steimer
continues to explore the process of scribbling on found objects, the tactile nature of which he embraces as a counter balance to the digital world.

Schoolhouse
The Schoolhouse has been a home to artists since 1996. the building, originally ps 52, was built in 1883 and the energy from over 100 years of existence resonates throughout. the three story live/ work space manages to balance a productive environment with a strong sense of family and community. it has served as a venue for a wide variety of musical performances, art exhibitions, photo shoots and film projects while during most nights of the week the residents gather in the kitchen and cook dinner together.

Lucky Gallery
Lucky Gallery works with underrepresented and emerging artists looking for a venue to share creativity and ideas in a supportive environment. The gallery focuses on the interaction and communication between the artist and community, through performance, workshops, education and opportunity. For more information visit www.luckygallery.com or email laura@luckygallery.com.

Animamus Art Salon
Drawing its inspiration from the salon format first popularized in 17th Century France, where aristocrats invited thinkers, artists, and writers to their homes to discuss ideas, Animamus Art Salon seeks, in this digital age, to create a physical meeting space that fosters exchange of ideas, facilitate discourse, and creates a sense of community. Salons are held monthly. Artists interested in participating in future salons can propose a presentation/performance by emailing animamusartsalon@gmail.com.

“Anatomically Incorrect” Closing Party, Feb 6. 6-9pm

Saturday evening, Feb. 6th from 6-9PM, Lucky Gallery is hosting an a closing party 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.

Local Brooklyn-based band, Descender will be performing. Taking their name from an obscure typographic term, Descender is a band made up of four graphic designers. Drawing on influences ranging from early ’90s indie and punk rock to hardcore and new progressive metal, Descender effortlessly fuses together a sound that defies easy classification. Often sidestepping traditional verse/chorus conventions, their songs are short and to the point, but also richly textured. Try to imagine a hint of Sonic Youth’s wall of guitars, Snapcase’s brutal breakdowns and Fugazi’s anthemic energy mixed with Slayer’s unrelenting metal riffs and you’ll have a reference point for Descender.

Over the last year Descender has been making a name for itself playing regularly in NYC-area clubs, basement venues and DIY loft spaces. Lucky Gallery is excited to have them perform along with a live drawing performance from local Red Hook artists, Todd Von Ammon and Nate Luce.

Bring your earplugs and have a drink or two and say good bye to “Anatomically Incorrect”.

“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.

Lucky Gallery Presents “Anatomically Incorrect”

Anatomically Incorrect

Anatomically Incorrect

From January 16th to February 7th, Lucky Gallery is pleased to present “Anatomically Incorrect,” 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.

These artists who have not worked together before were asked by Laura Arena, the director of Lucky Gallery to work together conceptually within the walls of the Gallery. Arena’s only instructions were to come up with a concept that would connect everyone’s work, through style, medium or content.

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.

“Art has helped me to figure out answers to questions, I have,” says Scott Ferguson. “Although usually these answers are still vague or ambiguous, and to another person may seem anatomically incorrect, art collaboration helps me to get closer to answers.”

Each artist will work directly on the gallery wall, creating a visual conversation; the alchemy of characters, text, and pattern will affect how the mural expands as each artist works responsively to the other. Each artist also created an original art work associated with the exhibition, which is on sale at the gallery for the duration of the show. There is an limited edition of 10, and each work is 11 x 17″.

The idea of this process is taken from the surrealist game, “the exquisite corpse,” a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence – combining various aesthetics. For this exhibition this process should reveal something “anatomically incorrect”.
