Preview of Coming Attractions
Last week, The Art of Commerce opened at the Manhattan Borough President’s Gallery with a stunning array of images. Interpretations of the theme ranged from fruit sold on the street to the big businesses that drive the world’s economy. The show is on view at the Municipal Building, 1 Centre Street, 19th Floor through October 29th (bring picture ID). The Art of Commerce was also mentioned in the London Independent Photography blog.
The Exhibitions Committee has some other exciting shows planned for this year and 2011!
A call has gone out for New Visions, an exhibition that will be held at the Durst Gallery in Manhattan. The show is unthemed, so it is an opportunity for members to show their best current work. L.L. Powers, the gallery director, will curate. Submissions are due October 31st.
Looking ahead, we have a show scheduled for March 2011 at St. Francis College in Brooklyn. The gallery is one block from the Borough Hall subway stop and is very easy to get to. It is a ground floor space with plenty of room and windows onto the street. It is extremely visible. Stay tuned-the call will go out in the next month.
We look forward to seeing your work!
