Dave Tree’s Silkscreening Party!!

Posted by on Mar 27, 2010 in Art Shows, White Rabbit | 2 comments

We’re doing something new this time and would love for you to partake in the fun!  The Good Things in Life Never Die closes the first Friday of April and we’ve decided to throw a celebration of sorts. It’s spring again – time to get out of the winter routine, put on a breezy t-shirt, and frolic in the sun. Ok, ok.. I might be jumping the gun, but it’s time to switch it up a little. There’s no better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons then with a silk screening party (duh)! Bring you shirts,...

Special Event Announcement: Distorted Beauty – Thursday April 8th

Posted by on Mar 11, 2010 in Announcements, Art Shows, Charity | 0 comments

Normally, we try to focus our attentions toward the world of fine art; grotesque, whimsical, or otherwise undeniably eye catching. Over the past year, our exhibitions and entries have reflected this interest. This April we’re doing something a little different! Our very own, Danielle Ezzo, had the opportunity to create a unique exhibition that attempts to bridge often disconnected realms of art fine and commercial worlds – art and fashion. Anagnorisis Fine Arts, Pixelspace, and Station Digital are pleased to announce the exhibition...

Tales of Passion and Woe – The Cathartic Art of Carrie Ann Baade

Posted by on Mar 4, 2010 in Announcements, Art Shows, Interviews | 2 comments

The Afterlife of the Honey Bees, gouache and ink mixed media on paper Abundant with symbolism, both familiar and newly invented (her work includes “the gods, rulers, and demons [and more] as metaphors for the complexity of absolute states of the human condition”), Carrie Ann Baade’s paintings speak with intelligence and love to the collective unconscious. The stories that Carrie tells are dramatic and explore social issues both personal and societal. To boot (and perhaps this is more important to note), her works are...

The Horseman, Demon, And Dave Tree

Posted by on Feb 24, 2010 in Interviews, White Rabbit | 0 comments

I’d heard about Dave Tree’s work from other artists for ages, and eventually had the pleasure of meeting the man in person about two years ago at an art opening in the east village. He’s a friendly yet rumbustious character, seemingly always ready for a good old fashion art debate. He has an unwavering loyalty to tradition with a flexibility to approach and process. This juxtaposition of old and new has always fascinated me especially seeing how that translates in an artist as versed as Tree. Aside from painting, he enjoys a...

Posted by on Feb 17, 2010 in Interviews | 0 comments

Since the 70’s, Bea Nettles has been one of the primary players in this niche group of alternative photographers – pushing the boundaries of the creative process and innovating technique. Her work often marries these photo methods to mixed media, as well as, book binding. Her work is included in numerous collections including in the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Canada, the Polaroid International Collection, the Phillips Collection in Washington DC, the International Museum of...

In Between

installation shot of The Shadows Cast by Ordinary Objects, 2009, mixed media installation courtesy of Sloan Fine Arts I first found the artwork of Hanna von Goeler at Sloan Fine Arts around a year ago. Ms. Alix Sloan, a true art lover and amazing gallerist, gave Ms. Goeler her project room to install a fantastic smorgasbord of reflective and translucent objects, including stenciled images mounted here and there amongst the detritus. Also amongst all these objects of finery and narcissism ran a little toy train with a light on its head. ...
