Beginning this weekend, VCS student Gionna Forte will have some of her book art on display in the exhibition “Weird Party on the Other Side of the Hedge: Paintings by Megan Berk” at Recession Art, located at 9 Clinton Street in the Lower East Side. The show will be up from through March 11, with an opening reception this Saturday, January 21st from 6 p.m. to midnight. Once the show is over, Gionna’s books will remain available for purchase at the gallery, as long as copies are available.
Here’s a little more about the space, quoted from its website:
Recession Art is an arts organization that serves emerging artists and aspiring collectors by providing an affordable and accessible alternative to the traditional art market. By showcasing top quality emerging artists and keeping prices low, Recession Art provides an unusually unpretentious place where art lovers of all incomes can participate in the appreciation and collection of original art by emerging artists. Recession Art’s mission is to open the art market to all art lovers regardless of their income, which will in turn help the careers of emerging artists by opening up a vast new market for their work.
