‘Conceptual Art’ – the IDEA presented is considered more important than the finished product’

Choose a statement, idea or issue; Make your art; Enter your large scale, mini or multiple pieces that hang on walls, from the ceiling or just sit on the floor. Demonstration of TRADITIONAL Artistic Talent is Great but Unnecessary- think WAY outside the box.

“Can We Talk”  critique discussions will be scheduled on Fridays during open studio construction, throughout the show, Saturdays at live figure drawing sessions and most importantly- at the OPENING.      Hear what fellow artists have to say.       If you have never experienced a thoroughly N.Y.C influenced, totally pretentious art critique- I will share my practical view of personal experience with artists who embody this mind set.
