SCRAWL Collaborative Drawing Show Closing Party in New Haven March 25, 2011

Zachary Keeting, our friend with whom we shared a studio at City Wide Open Studios last year, sent out a notice about the closing party and "Big Reveal" for SCRAWL Friday, March 25, 2011 at Artspace New Haven.

Over the last month and a half, SCRAWL brought individual artists and teams of artists into Artspace New Haven to draw on its gallery walls in a huge game of exquisite corpse. Each drawing was connected to the next without the artists being able to see each other's content. Keeting was part of a team called "The Futurists" along with other artists associated with New Haven's Educational Center for the Arts. Friday will be the first time participants and viewers can see the work in its entirety.

Closing party and "reveal" is this Friday, March 25, 2011 from 6-8 pm at Artspace New Haven, 50 Orange St., New Haven, CT. The reception is free and open to the public. There is a VIP cocktail hour from 5-6, and admission to that portion of the evening's events is $10.


Gorky's Granddaughter: Video Interviews of Visual Artists

Painters Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy have joined forces to found a blog that borrows its name for their recent show at the Fort Point Arts Community. Their site, Gorky's Granddaughter, explores the visual arts community around them in video. Christopher Joy conducted a lot of interviews on the fly at CWOS, and for full disclosure, I must say that the video of me taken at City Wide Open Studios, New Haven, is here.
