Erica Reade: Beach Lovers

Opening Reception Alert! Erica Reade’s solo photo show, Beach Lovers’ at Picture Farm in Brooklyn opens tonight from 7-10pm. Originally from Montreal, Reade is now Brooklyn-based. Of the series the artist says, “I spend a lot of time observing beach-goers at Rockaway Beach, Queens;  their bodies swaying in the waves, splayed out half-asleep on sandy towels, or chasing small children around with more sunscreen. We are raw and exposed on the beach, stripped of our clothes, our makeup, our status markers.”

The exhibition is open through August 31st in case you miss the opening reception!

Robert Mann: I Scream, You Scream

Perfect timing to combat this summer heat is Robert Mann Gallery’s summer exhibition, I Scream, You Scream. “Robert Mann Gallery’s summer exhibition, I Scream, You Scream, looks at both the visual and social culture of ice cream by juxtaposing contemporary color images of ice cream itself with historical images of people savoring every sweet morsel. The show explores how photographers can capture the playfulness of the human experience indulging in the pleasures of life that will melt in your mind, not your hand”. We’re looking forward to seeing this playful show! The show features works by: John Albok, Ralph Bartholomew, Jeff Brouws, Ted Croner, Jim Dow, Martin Elkort, Harold Feinstein, Jill Freedman, André Kertész, Olivia Locher, Meryl Meisler, Martin Parr, PUTPUT, Simone Rosenbauer, Peter Sekaer, S.B.

Shara Hughes: Same Space Different Day

Shara Hughes: Same Space Different Day

Last chance to see Shara Hughes, Same Space Different Day at Rachel Uffner Gallery. In half of the exhibition, Hughes explores the different ways in which one object or idea can be perceived when shown within different contexts. “Playing with the boundaries between the real and the imagined, Hughes renders her paintings as portals into unique universes that beg for deeper discovery”. The upstairs gallery features drawings created over the past three years. “Purposefully composed as Hughes’ mind is preoccupied with other thought, she allows her subconscious to be at work on the page, enacting shapes and colors that she might not otherwise choose to pair”. Catch it before it closes!

Mrs.: Three’s Company

Mrs.: Three’s Company

  • Montgomery Perry Smith

Good Morning Atmos! We were recently invited to preview Mrs. latest show, Three’s Company and we couldn’t be happier to share it with you! Opening on Saturday to the public, the show features the works of Rebecca Morgan, Mark Mulroney and Montgomery Perry Smith. The light-hearted exhibition takes its name from the popular sitcom, which aired between 1977-1984. In the show, “physical comedy punctuates the trio’s hare-brained schemes to remedy their drama-filled situations and self-created comedic dilemmas. In parallel, Morgan, Mulroney and Smith’s works perform as stand-ins for the sitcom’s characters.  Not one identifying as a specific role, but each encompassing improbable personalities, comedic gestures and satiric portrayals”.

Owner Sara Salamone explains, “Throughout the many seasons [of Three’s Company], the cast actually changes characters….it’s kind of this funny thing that it’s this long, continuing, ongoing television show, but it never had any kind of real constant. So I kind of saw that as kind of personality flux and how we can, as artists, situate ourselves in this world where we’re all kind of shifting our own personalities. We chose these three artists specifically because they also interject that as well as pop culture and humor into their works”. Three’s Company is a breath of fresh air and is definitely worth the trip to Queens! 

Three’s Company will be open June 10 through July 29, 2017 with an opening reception on Saturday, June 10th 6-9pm.
