Two NYC Art Events Not to Miss This Weekend!
Unfortunately MAO & Dr. Quiz will be very occupied entertaining a house full of people in the Hamptons this weekend..
I know.. It's tough to be me.. but if you're in NYC.. there are two contemporary art happenings not to miss.. and surprise surprise.. NEITHER one is in Manhattan!! OMG!!
1. The 10th Annual Art Under the Bridge Festival in Dumbo. Opens Tonight Friday Oct 13th.. and continues all weekend long. Nearly 300 Artists using various mediums will display their work in galleries, lobbies, loading docks, and sidewalks along Dumbo's cobblestone streets. We think about 200 studios will be open to the public. Galleries will be open, and a collector will not be able to swing a dead cat without hitting an "Up and Coming" artist! The festival's organizer is the D.U.M.B.O. Art Center. (Photo by Andreas Feininger)Plus, we think, almost all the events are free too!! Except this one.. which looks pretty cool, but has a "Suggested" donation!
Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Ask a Critic

Location: d.u.m.b.o. arts center (dac), 30 Washington St., Sunday, Oct. 15, 7:30 pm (suggested contribution: $5)
2. The NYC Art Blog World's Dynamic Duo..have their newest curatorial extravaganza. And Yes...I know extravaganza is a ridiculous word to use for an art show...Anyway.. Together, Bloggy (Barry Hoggard) and James Wagner present "Dangling Between The Real Thing and The Sign In The Window" at the Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery in Williamsburg.
This show consisting of seven emerging artist promises to be well worth the trip across water this weekend. The artists featured include : Jaishri Abichandani, Ina Diane Archer, Peter Corrie, Susan C. Dessel, Nicolas Garait, Joy Garnett, and Jacques Louis Vidal. The show is up till November 13th, but the opening party is Tonight from 7pm to 9pm. This is one art event not to be missed.. especially if you are a NYC Artist or Art Dealer
and you want to have your gallery work listed as a Top Pick on the ArtCal website ever again on the contemporary art cutting edge!
Oh, and don't forget to bring
cute boys flowers, we're sure it's been a ton of work putting this show together, so Jim and James will probably need deserve them.
