Thursday, July 10th

Beloved multi-media Brooklyn gallery, Cinders, is celebrating 10 years of not just existing, but of bringing a community together through their diverse group of artists. This special anniversary show, A Decade of Decadunce (+10 pun points), features an impressive list of artists who have helped shape them over the past 10 years into the non-profit art organization they are today. Check out this lineup:

Maya Hayuk, Brian Chippendale, Diane Barcelowsky, Allyson Mellberg, Jocko Weyland, Jungil Hong, Esther Pearl Watson, Kyle Ranson, Blok, Jim Tozzi, Travis Egedy, Matt Furie, Anna Hellsgard, Ron Rege Jr., and Ric Ocasek (lead singer of the CARS!), plus many many many more. This list just scratches the surface.

Ron Rege Jr. was also the gallery's June Artist of the Month (an excellent choice), and you should read their interview with him to hear more about his airy, and magical cartooning style. 

Opening reception party kicks off Thursday, July 10th, from 7-10 pm, with DJ Dave Potes, at the Dossier Outpost on the South Street Seaport in Manhattan. A beautiful, colorful building that's the perfect location for a beautiful Thursday night party!

Beginning in 2008, the Georgetown Merchants Association commissioned graphic artist Tim Silbaugh to design posters for the Georgetown Art Attack. Working with Fantagraphics curator and GMA president Larry Reid, Silbaugh's monthly motifs convey something about distinctive character and colorful culture of the historic Georgetown industrial arts corridor.

Friday, June 13th

Brooklyn, NY:  The Jalopy Theatre welcomes the opening reception for their summer long exhibition featuring original art from The High Fidelity Art of Jim Flora this Friday the 13th

For decades, Jim Flora made some of the grooviest album artwork for Columbia and RCA Victor records, and for the first time all of that high energy art was compiled into one complete anthology with the help of co-archivists and authors Irwin Chusid and Barbara Economon. These ruckusly exuberant drawings, with eye-popping color, and post-cubist influence, are in constant motion. Original copies of some rare Flora album covers, proof sheets, and music artifiacts will be jumpin' off the walls at the Jalopy Theatre and Gallery. 

Irwin Chusid will be on hand to sign and sell books amidst some swing and jazz tunes that influenced Flora's art, and vice versa. The FREE reception runs from 6-8 pm, but the art show will continue until August 22nd!
