Graffiti Summer Vacation and Workshops 

Reception:  Saturday, June 29th, 2-5pm.

 

Exhibition: June 6th – August 5th, 2017

Gallery Hours:  Tuesday – Saturday 12-6pm

Graffiti Summer Vacation features the work of Lady Pink, Josephine Barreiro, Michela Martello, Anna Walinska and more! This show is as much about community as it is about showcasing female street and graffiti artists and writers. This summer from June 6 to August 6,  Pen + Brush will open its gallery walls to the NYC community, inviting female graffiti and street artists and writers to make their art on our walls. The goal is to mix female artists who are already influencing the landscape of street and graffiti art with the voices of writers, and make their work accessible to Pen + Brush’s network and to the New York City community.

During our Graffiti Summer Vacation, we will hold a series of writing and graffiti workshops. Artist Michela Martello will teach a workshop for kids on the graffiti alphabet.  Martello’s interactive mural Graffiti Goddess (pictured above) is currently on view in our space, and has become a compelling site for communal expression and inspiration. Martello has several mural commissions around New York and New Jersey and counts street art as one of the defining influences over her work. Pen + Brush welcomes her blend of strength and softness, of domesticity and demolition, into the public realm, where the art takes a stand against the anxieties of 2017 and affirms women’s power in the face of current political and social devaluing of women as artists and people.  Graffiti Goddess will remain on view throughout the Graffiti Summer Vacation. The ongoing additions of words and art from the public have turned this mural into a vibrant, evolving public art project that serves as proof of the power engagement through art and words that will now spread throughout our entire space with this summer exhibit.

There will also be a series of five interlocking writing workshops led by poet and educator Marissa Anne Ayala. In this series, participants will read and respond to poetry by female writers and leverage language to explore, question, and speak out loud in reaction to the politics of the self, family, gender, geography, race. This series is designed to develop writers as poet-activists as participants both explore poetic narratives and create their own.  These workshops are designed for new writers, seasoned writers, artists, and activists seeking to engage with the power of protest via the arts.

Finally, artist Josephine Barreiro will lead a workshop, also for kids, which focuses on creating street art through the quiet magic of sticker art; Handmade slaps and postals. Barreiro hails from Newark; NJ and cites graffiti, specifically that of the urban center, as the groundwork for her gestural and energetic technique and also as the inspiration for her work. The artist’s deep-seated love for graffiti/street art and abstract expressionism gives way to a body of work that is laced with anger, spontaneous energy, and personal as well as cultural memory. Barreiro will also contribute a mural featuring her black and white paintings in which distorted figures, symbols, and gestural lines morph into expressive street art abstractions.

Pen + Brush has invited a number of prominent female graffiti and street artists to contribute their voices to our walls throughout the summer. We hope that by bringing a diverse collection of artists and writers to the gallery space, we are also encouraging the New York City community to engage in a dialogue not only with these artists but with each other. Pen and Brush is also inviting community groups to participate in the workshops and the Graffiti Summer Vacation.

July 29th I will be Participating in the Pen+Brush Gallery  Graffiti Summer workshops with kids from NYC. I will also be creating a mural on the gallery wall in June. More

details coming soon.

     Broad Strokes  

            Group Exhibition

 

We are pleased to present Broad Strokes, the second group art exhibition in our new state-of-the-art facility located in New York’s Flatiron District. Taking the name from the sometimes pejorative word for a tough woman, “Broad” also refers to the wide range of work and perspectives represented. 

A group show totaling 63 works by 15 different artists, Broad Strokes offers an earnest contemplation of modern art’s rich history beyond the exclusionary lens of the accepted canon. As a result, Broad Strokes aims to incite and encourage deeper considerations and reconsiderations of the role modern art plays for contemporary women artists.

“This theme, of using modernist practices in new ways to reinterpret contemporary subject matter, permeates deeply the style and work of these seemingly contrasting artists,” said Pen and Brush Executive Director Janice Sands. “Each artist included in Broad Strokes reflects a unique history of modern art through their work, drawing connections between modern art’s most notable influences – beginning with Baroque painters like Rembrandt and Velázquez, Impressionism, Sigmund Freud, and continuing through to graffiti artists of the 20th century and avant-garde artists of today.”

The 15 artists represented in the show were selected by Independent curator Raquelle Azran, who describes the exhibition as, “celebrating women artists and the richness and broad diversity of their strokes, the boldness and feistiness of ‘broads’ in their creativity and self expression.”

Among the featured artists is Josephine Barreiro, whose colorful and energetic paintings reflect her upbringing in Newark, New Jersey’s Ironbound neighborhood as the daughter of Spanish immigrants. Barreiro is inspired by her love of graffiti art and the iconic work of Spanish painters from Diego Velazquez to Pablo Picasso. Not only will Barreiro have work in the show, she will be live painting during the Broad Strokes opening on April 1.

 

 

 

 

 

Broad Strokes will be on view at Pen and Brush, 29 East 22nd Street, New York, NY 10010, from April 1 through June 5, 2016.
