poster for "COLOR or COLOUR..." Exhibition

This event has ended.

The exhibition features a select group of international artists from both sides of the pond. This year's group show features work by Ben Eine, Katrin Fridriks, Lee Baker, and Michael Bevilacqua. The exhibition has been extended and rehung with new works.

Ben Eine is based in London and known worldwide for his large-scale outdoor street murals of alphabet lettering. For this exhibition, Eine has created a unique wall mural on the gallery's large back wall, viewable from the Bowery. Limited edition prints of 50 will be available on the day of the launch, which will mirror one of the selected pieces on display. Ben Eine, himself, will spray and paint each print, making every print unique. The edition will launch online at 7pm on November 27th, to coincide with the opening of the exhibition.

Katrin Fridriks has gained huge notoriety internationally with her unique style of abstract painting on canvas and paper, with her eclectic mix of colors that fuse the natural energies of her native Iceland – fire, water, earth and air – with contemporary pop art, graffiti and calligraphic references. A selection of her newest works will be on display.

Lee Baker will be converting the entire lower floor into his own colorful wonderland with a selection of his works on the walls and a new installation. Baker draws from both his subject inspiration of the aggressive force of urbanization and industrialization as well as the depiction of unstoppable power of nature set against seemingly indomitable cities and other human constructs.

Michael Bevilacqua is a New York based painter. Raised in Northern California, Bevilacqua effortlessly blends high and low culture. His work is in numerous public collections including The Mitsuni Collection, Tokyo, Japan; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Deste Foundation, Athens, Greece; Astrup Fearnley Museum, Oslo, Norway; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and The Dallas Museum of Art.

    Highly recommended for the lower level which is all Lee Baker. At first the colors made me want to hate it but after a few minutes, I was thoroughly in love. Worth a visit for sure.
