Long Island City Winter Show
Introducing Diego Salazar's First Winter Art Show, an exhibit of those who are making art in Long Island City studios or have in the recent past.
These are painters who find inspiration in the more industrial Long Island City, which is fast disappearing, and those who prefer a more detached realm of line, texture and color. You will find people in some of the paintings doing ordinary things; other paintings encompass strange inward realities that are often expressed symbolically.
Many works are images of a Long Island City that no longer exist - the Power Plant at 5th St. and 51st Ave. with its original stacks, which is now a luxury apartment building, and
the old Gantries before they were polished up and became focal points for the waterside park.
Photos of crashed cars and torn billboards eyeing us mysteriously, hanging paintings on draped cloth with sewing machine stitching drawing us into the pirates lair, and a couple of white porcelain sea creatures that confound the imagination engage us further and energize the rooms.
Featuring the work of:
Violet Baxter, Mary Didoardo, Jean-Marie Guyaux, Arthur Hammer, Joel Handorff, Noriko Kuresumi, Ragnar Lagerblad, Sandra Mack-Valencial, Oscar Maxera, Elinore Schnurr, Diane Sipprelle, Preston Trombly, John Varriano and Costa Vavagiakis.
