The curator selected small to large art pieces which would be great for the artsy gifts, such as paintings, sculptures, prints, potteries, artist books, postcards, accessory and many kind of handmade art pieces. This is the great opportunity for that if people are looking for extraordinary and one-of-a-kind holiday gifts this year or would like to give something special to someone special.

As we have retail space along with the gallery, we do the gift wrapping easily and even take domestic/international shipping! Also, people could take purchased artwork with you, which is impossible at regular exhibition.
We are always willing to help people who would like to find some great gift for holiday season, and we wish Happy Holidays for all.

NEW EXHIBITION | OLD WIVES’ LIES | 9/12 – 11/3

OLD WIVES’ LIES

September 12 – November 3, 2013

Opening Reception: Friday, September 13 | 6 – 9 PM | Williamsburg Every 2:ND Friday

“Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.”

— L. Frank Baum, creator of the Oz books, 1900

This show focuses on works inspired by the artists’ childhood relationship with folklore—from the traditional to the obscure and the contemporary, all that mattered most regardless of its “cultural” merit—and specifically the misinformation, neuroses and habits these artists have as a result of that relationship, and may still be accepting or overcoming into adulthood. The show investigates a diverse selection of personal mythology by a group of more than 30 artists working in techniques including painting, drawing, sculpture and Vine video.

Curated by Hazel Lee Santino

Maria Montiel  :  an artist/graphic designer specialized in textile design, with several years of experience in the field and with clients originating from Venezuela, Canada, United States, United Kingdom, among others. Originally from Venezuela, the study of Maria stands at Madrid, but she acknowledges that much of her influence comes from Latin American with its vivid colors and organic textures. However, the Iberian metropolis also defines some sight with experimental organized chaos and neon signs. Maria, comes from a home where art and architecture were a constant stimulus and now translate into a fresh and vibrant work of varied influences, where shapes and natural colors are bi-dimensional conception.

Andrea Lauren was a New York City based artist and currently live in North Calorina, illustrator creating whimsical, colorful pieces under the studio name Paper-Sparrow. Inspired by her classical music training and a love of nature, Andrea’s art often combines these two passions. Her art has recently been featured by musicians on album covers as well as music publications. Since beginning Paper-Sparrow in 2007, the generous support of the community has been uplifting and Andrea is honored to be doing something she loves.
