Something different on my blog today. One of the many interesting blogs I receive on a regular basis, is that of Kesha Bruce.
She and fellow artist Charlie Grosso have created Baang & Burne Contemporary and are hosting a series of one-night-only art events where, unlike at a traditional art gallery opening, artists, art collectors, and members of their mailing list are invited to attend a small intimate exhibition event in a private home or hotel suite. They have events planned for New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Portland. There is also a blog tour (and this is where I come in!).
“Our events are geared toward creating a comfortable setting where collectors can meet artists, and feel comfortable asking questions about the work.” says Grosso. “The whole point is to initiate and create a unique art experiences that
benefit not just the artists, but new collectors too. And because our events are smaller, every one of our guests gets VIP treatment.”
The first artist to feature is Jane Zweibel with her exhibition Stitched Identities: Recent Artwork, New York City, Sunday September 26, 2 - 6 pm. If you would like an invite contact Baang & Burne Contemporary direct.
Here are some links for further information. I found the interview with Jane Zweigal very interesting.
