Made in Queens: opening Sunday December 7, 10am-2pm.
11 artists from Long Island City and beyond take the train to Patterson.
Made in Queens is a group exhibition
showcasing 11 of the myriad talented artists who either make art in or
about Queens, New York. Many have studios in the burgeoning Long
Island City area; some work from home, and others hit the streets.
Queens is the most diverse of the five
boroughs of New York, a patchwork of dozens of unique neighborhoods
each with its distinct identity. It is apropos that the featured
artists utilize a wide spectrum of media. There are many connections,
either in materiality or thematic reference to the urban
environment. Others retreat from the real city, and lead us into
a world of nature and metaphysics.
By trains, cars and subways, 11 intrepid
artists from Queens and LIC are coming up to the Harlem Valley.
The first in a series of city-meets-country art encounters, "Made
in Queens" takes advantage of the rail that connects NYC with greener
pastures: the gallery is across from the Metro North train
station, 90 minutes from Grand Central. Natural scenery and
cultural attractions abound, refreshments will be served and good food
is available next door at Front Street Cafe. The exhibition is in
Patterson, NY. The art is Made in Queens.

Street's Third Annual Juried Group Show: Reflection.
Reflection is an essential process of light and surfaces. It is
also the process of self-recognition. Narcissus, the first
narcissist, looked into a pool and fell in love with his own image,
which he took to be another. We still have pools, and we
also have mirrors and phones and various new pools of light to stare
into, and we're not necessarily any better at recognizing
ourselves. We think that these shows are projections from out
there, but it's we who are projecting: all the terrible things we
see, and also all the beauty. Like ripples in water, all technology has its own bent. Reflected
images are altered by the surface, refracted and reversed, familiar and
opposite at the same time. By mirror-images we know ourselves. Art
work gives us awareness of the process, and allows us to share.
