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.

Lucky Gallery Hosts a Book Release Party for “Here in Red Hook”

Andy Vernon-Jones, Raheem and Raquan Smoking Before School

Lucky Gallery, after a long hiatus, is pleased to be hosting a book release party for Here in Red Hook, a photography book from Red Hook photographer, Andy Vernon Jones, at 360 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, on Thursday, November 17, 2011, 7 – 10pm. The book is composed of photos taken in the streets, alleys and abandoned lots of the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook and combine a documentary approach with an art-photography sensibility. The photos express the beauty and struggle of life in Red Hook. Many of the portraits are of young people who are at the cusp of adulthood; their gazes show their toughness and their hope for the future.

Vernon-Jones manages to capture the many layers of the neighborhood that the average person does not see traversing the main street. There is a sense of nostalgia and romanticism in this work a sense of timelessness; it is hard to tell the time frame of when this work was made. He is so at ease with his subjects and the neighborhood he unobtrusively captures their spirits and weaves together a narrative, through desolate landscapes and candid portraits, of one of the most unique neighborhoods of Brooklyn, Red Hook.

Here in Red Hook presents a body of work that Vernon-Jones has been working on for nearly five years and presents the series in its entirety for the first time. Some of these images have been featured: on Vernon-Jones’ blog www.hereinredhook.blogspot.com, at Lucky Gallery’s “Made in Red Hook” exhibition and at the Brooklyn Museum. All the photographs in the book were shot on medium format film includes an introduction by Brian Zimbler and a hand-drawn map of Red Hook by artist Adam Thompson. Avni Bhatia and Andy Vernon-Jones designed this 96 page, limited edition book hand-numbed by Vernon-Jones.

Lucky Gallery is very excited to work with Vernon-Jones again after the closure of Lucky Gallery storefront at 176 Richards Street in July 2010. Lucky Gallery’s director, Laura Arena is reincarnating “the spirit of gallery” by hosting this event at 360 Van Brunt Street just a few blocks from the where the gallery once was located.

“Lucky Gallery does not need a storefront to exist, the spirit and practice to provide a supportive environment for emerging artists lives on,” says Laura Arena. “Having this opportunity to work again with Red Hook artist Vernon-Jones and hosting this event in the community of which this book reflects is fitting for the relaunch of Lucky Gallery as an independent entity working and collaborating with artists, galleries and artist spaces world-wide.”

The book release party for Here in Red Hook is on November 17, 2011 from 7 – 10 at 360 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The party will include food, drink, music, and book signing with the artist. There will also be limited editions of photos for sale of Vernon-Jones imagery from Here in Red Hook. For more information email laura@luckygallery.com.

This event is sponsored by, The Good Fork, Steve’s Key Lime Pies, Sixpoint Brewery, Baked, Brooklyn Ice House, Esser Vineyards, and Breuckelen Distilling.

And special! special! thanks to Scott Pfaffman for the use of 360 Van Brunt Street!
