Wed – Sun, 2-8
Making Fun is a series of new works by Nebraska-born, New York-based artist Derek Rippe. Long-time art director at Nickelodeon, Rippe’s career as a children’s toy designer influences his fine art work. This playful imagery is offset by the artist’s own sardonic sense of humor, making this exhibit deceptively not for kids.

Real Estate: an ongoing, sub-dividing group exhibition co-curated by artists Peter Soriano and Philippe Richard. Soriano and Richard have taken on roles of real-estate developers, hired other artists as “contractors”, let out the divided spaces to more artists as “tenants” who in turn invited other artists as “sub-tenants”and “squatters”. The show offers a humorous comment on the ways in which creativity is affected by economic pressures. The exhibition is one of constant flux, with artists onsite for the duration, jostling for space and striving to work collectively as they continue to “sub-divide” and install works in tight quarters.

‘Libations’ – A solo exhibition of gilded paintings and archival prints by P.C. Turczyn
Ancient teachings and quantum theory teach us that the universe is made up of vibrations consisting of light, sound and information. I believe that everything carries a unique identifying vibration, somewhat like a genetic code. By using geometry as expressed in nature, light, color, rhythm, sound and intention, I imbue my paintings with vibratory codes to inspire viewers. The icons emerge from meditations, dreams and synchronicity related to a metaphysical theme.

Thank-You-Thank-You-Tote

Dearest Williamsburg Every 2:ND Friday Community + Fans,

Over the past several years, the AKArt team has enjoyed supporting + promoting the Williamsburg Every 2:ND Friday program. We have seen WE2:ND—initially a program of the Williamsburg Gallery Association—grow from a smaller cluster of galleries centered in Williamsburg, to now include project + exhibitions spaces in Greenpoint + Bushwick—and everywhere in between. It seems as if each month we receive new requests from gallery directors, curators and artists to be included in the next AKArt WE2:ND email blast, on the WE2:ND website and on the WE2:ND Facebook page, which we have been overseeing.

AKArt has also experienced amazing growth over this time as a boutique art advisory agency—expanding our footprint and working directly with galleries, collectors, art fairs, auction houses and artists, to collaborating on and curating challenging + unique exhibitions + programs. As our organization has grown, we feel that this is an appropriate time to pass the reins of the program to Kathleen Vance of Front Room Gallery and WAGMAG—who will take charge of reaching out to the community for listings, composing future email blasts, website posts and Facebook page updates. We ask that you direct your September and future Williamsburg Every 2:ND Friday queries + listings to Katheen via k@frontroom.org.

Please join us for AKArt's upcoming projects. You can sign up to receive our updates, engage the vision on Facebook or follow the conversation on Twitter. A whole bag of Thank You's for allowing AKArt to be part of WE2:ND's continued growth… see you at the next WE2:ND Friday.

Lizzie Jones, AKArt Associate + Deon Soogrim + the AKArt Team

Sarah Intemann is a fine artist working out of Brooklyn, NY. Born in Dayton Ohio, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Wright State University. Intemann primarily does large scale abstract paintings/drawings but has strayed from her usual work to create this new series of realistic portraiture. Drawn from marble busts of prominent men, she was attracted to the whimsicality of these men of position in frivolous wigs/attire. All work is charcoal pencil and acrylic ink wash on paper

REVERSE SUMMER LAB: Liminal

REVERSE is pleased to present ‘Liminal,’ a dual exhibition featuring work by Audra Wolowiec and Alissa Blumenthal as part of the REVERSE SUMMER LAB shared-residency program. Wolowiec, a Brooklyn-based artist from Detroit, Michigan will present a new sound-sculpture hybrid alongside a series of drawings by Blumenthal, a little-known early American modernist who notably studied under Kazimir Malevich from 1920-1923.

Both Projects occupy interstitial times and spaces, lending themselves to uncanny and ambiguous experiences rooted in concrete objects and artworks. Wolowiec’s sculpture investigates sounds and structures that are typically hidden from view like the beams of a wall or the voice exercises of performers. Blumenthal’s work is complicated by the fact that she is a fictional character developed by contemporary artist Tatiana Istomina as a conceptual device to explore abstraction. The exhibition will include ancillary drawings and objects produced by the two artists during their residencies at REVERSE.

‘Liminal’ is curated by Holly Shen Chaves.

Open August 8 – August 11
Opening Reception – Thursday, August 8,  7-9pm

“; )”
et al projects presents ” ; ) “, the physical manifestation of Adult Contemporary. ” ; ) “ is a quotational device to suggest a come-on: a lack of concrete connection, lack of emotion, a whimsical or sarcastic gesture. Adult Contemporary is for easy listening. Originally “opening” on December 21st, 2012, the supposed date of the Mayan Apocalypse, Adult Contemporary is a telephone platform for aural work by emerging visual and performance artists, composers and musicians. Previously, the non-site of the hotline offered a debased experience for an art audience to enjoy a singular work of art anywhere.
