Over the last year I had the opportunity to work with Peter on a number of art projects including Northside Open Studios and 100 Proof Project. He applied as an intern during our NOS prep period and I was astonished that this big bald Canadian would believe we’d work under that capacity. He’s since become my sidekick in all things arts administrative projecteering and I’m happy to announce a group exhibition he’s curated titled Of Mind, Body & Soul: An Exploration of the Personal, opening this Friday at Fowler Arts Collective. Press release below, see you there!
The exhibition presents works that address the theme of questioning and exploring the self, bringing together a diverse cross-section of the current Brooklyn arts scene. Each artist was selected for their singular approach to the title subject. Carolina Duque, Katya Grokhovsky, J.F. Lynch, Ellie Murphy, Caitlin Peluffo, Katarina Riesing, and Ryan Turley uniquely explore deep and critical relationships with themselves. These works, many of which were created specifically for this exhibition, allow for an insight into each artist’s psyche, but they also pose broader questions of an individual’s internal relationship with the self.
Please join us for Of Mind, Body & Soul’s opening reception on Friday, Feb. 10th from 7-10 pm. From 7:30-9:30pm during the opening reception, there will be a performance by Katya Grokhovsky. The exhibition will be on view from February 10th to 26th, 2012. During the exhibition, Fowler will have open gallery hours on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 4pm. During other times, the exhibition can be viewed by appointment. Contact us here to make an appointment.
Fowler is located in the historic Greenpoint Terminal building on the East River waterfront at 67 West Street, Brooklyn, NY 11222. The closest subway is the Greenpoint Ave. G train stop.
