Anagnorisis Picks | Moar March!
As promised in my last post, here’s the second list of art exhibitions coming up in March that I think are worth your attention. This was initially supposed to cover only shows going on outside Gotham, however I’ve come across a few more shows taking place in the dark city that shouldn’t be missed this month.
Clicking on the headings below will bring you to web pages that lead to exhibition details:
For the first time in around 20 years, filmmaker David Lynch will be exhibiting his visual artwork. At Tilton Gallery on the upper east side of Manhattan, Lynch will be showing artwork created between 2009 and 2011 and will include 2d work along with a short video. At this point, the gallery’s website is not listing any information about the show, however the article on Gallerist states the show will open on March 6 and will have an artist’s reception on March 16. I’ve not fact-checked this and am a little wary. Anyone know any details? I’m hoping to find some time to contact the gallery next week. I’d love to see some Lynch’s work in the flesh (as opposed to on the screen).
"Birth of Wisdom" by Cathie Bleck
Guest curated by Copro Gallery director, Gary Pressman, Dark Pop aims to take artists out of their comfort zone by encouraging them to delve into dark themes with their artwork. Many of the artists listed for the show are already pretty dark-minded in my humble opinion, so I’m not sure how they’re stepping out of their comfort zones with this fourth installation of this group show. It’s a great concept, however, and the artwork in the show is quite impressive. I’m very excited that illustrator Cathie Bleck is included. Her work is extraordinary!

Thinkspace’s yearly group show will be opening this Saturday. Meant to showcase past and future Thinkspace artists, this show is a wonderful venue to discover new loves. Caitlin Hackett will be included as will a close friend of hers, Christina Mrozik, whose intricate drawings are absolutely stunning. Thinkspace has posted a great Flickr set showing some of the artists studio and progress shots. I love seeing these kinds of images as they give a great window into the way the artworks are created.
Don’t miss Jeremy Hush’s new solo exhibition opening up at the intimate Articulated Gallery space Saturday night in San Francisco. I wish I could be there, but alas I’m stuck on the east coast. I am a huge fan of Jeremy’s work and hope to see more of it up close and personal soon.
"Icon" by Scott Holloway
There is a ridiculous amount of art in this show. I mean a GARGANTUAN amount of artwork by around 125 artists. Again, like Thinkspace’s Harvest exhibition that I mentioned above, this is a showcase of La Luz artists past and future. Should be great!

I recently posted about this exhibition on the Creep Machine. Take a peek at my post or the gallery’s website for more details on his show which recently opened in San Francisco.
I’m proud to close this post off by encouraging you to attend Cynthia von Buhler’s immersive play, Speakeasy Dollhouse, which will be having its fourth performance this coming Monday March 5th. Based on the clues she has about the murder of her grandfather, Cynthia has put together a performance that takes place around you as you sip “tea” from your mugs while chatting with friends. Oh…and there are amazing canolis! If you can’t make this coming performance, there will be others to come! Every one is different: as Cynthia learns more about her family’s history, she adds to the play. More info on her website here.
