To say that Dev Harlan’s art is just “amazing” would be an understatement.  His latest exhibit is currently showing at the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York and it will blow your mind.  If you recall Dev’s last exhibit at the gallery (click here to refresh your memory), you know that you should never miss seeing Dev’s work.

These pictures don’t do justice to seeing an entire room filled with Dev’s work with patterns that change repeatedly into something cooler than the image that was presented before it.  Coupled with an ambient soundtrack of Brian Eno’s music, you might find yourself never wanting to leave the gallery.

Dev was cool enough to pose in front of his work at the opening night reception, and I liked the shadow effect his art created for the above picture.  Thanks again Dev!  Do not miss this exhibit under any circumstances!  The Christopher Henry Gallery is located at 127 Elizabeth Street in New York and will be up until the end of October 2012.

"Astral Flight Hangar" by Dev Harlan. Now showing at Christopher Henry Gallery in NYC through October 9, 2011

If you’ve seen Dev Harlan’s work before, your mouth has surely dropped open before.  If this is your first exposure to the wonderful world of Dev Harlan, let me start by saying, photos do nothing to capture the magic in his work.  In Dev Harlan’s exhibit “Astral Flight Hangar” at the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York you must prepare to be wowed when you see his works in person.  A giant figure resides in the center of the gallery on a reflective floor and the trippiest projections you can imagine are shown on the figure and reflect onto the walls and the floor.  You will not be able to take your eyes off this exhibit.

 I met Dev at the opening night reception and I was able to tell him how much I love his work.  We even took a photo with his projections running over us!  I love my life!  You can see that photo after the jump.  

Do not miss “Astral Flight Hangar” by Dev Harlan at the Christopher Henry Gallery (located at 127 Elizabeth Street) in New York.  The show runs until October 9, 2011.

“Black Velvet – The Godfather of Soul” at Christopher Henry Gallery

"Black Velvet - The Godfather of Soul" by Kelsey Bennett. Now showing at Christopher Henry Gallery in New York through August 19, 2011.

File this one under “funky and totally random.”  Not only is the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York showing an exhibit of photographs of a James Brown impersonator, but the photos were shot by the real life Tony Bennett’s granddaughter, Kelsey Bennett.  “Black Velvet – The Godfather of Soul,” follows the on and off stage antics of James Brown impersonator Black Velvet (aka Charles Bradley).  I cannot guarantee that the photos will make you feel good (bad pun), but if you attended the opening night reception like I did, you’ll know that the soul food buffet made everyone feel nice – like sugar and spice!

If James Brown impersonators are not your thing, don’t worry – the second floor of the gallery features Matt and Mark Engler’s “Streets of Glory,” a mixed media exhibit that has painting, sculpture and a fluorescent green bear!

The Christopher Henry Gallery is located at 127 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.  Both exhibits are showing until August 14, 2011.

Knitting is For Pussies Closing Party

Knitting is For Pussies Closing Party: May 27, 2011 at Christopher Henry Gallery in New York (from 6 to 9 pm)

All great things have to come to an end sooner or later.  When the Christopher Henry Gallery launched Polish artist Olek’s exhibit “Knitting is For Pus***” nearly a year ago, Olek took the art world by storm – and then crocheted it!  The exhibit features a studio apartment in which every object has been crocheted and it’s one of the most unique exhibits you’ll ever see.  It was written up by Time Out NY, VOGUE Italy, PAPER, Village Voice, Details, M Magazine Gallery Guide, The Daily News, StylelikeU, NBC News, LX Taxi TV, NHK Japan, The Miami Herald, Complex, Juxtapoz, and countless blogs. Olek will also be featured in an upcoming issue of New York Magazine, as part of a special Interior Design issue.

Your final chance to see this exhibit in New York will be on May 27, 2011 at the Christopher Henry Gallery (located at 127 Elizabeth Street) from 6 to 9 pm.  If you are like me and will be out of town for a party that is sure to be one for the record books, it will be included in a traveling museum show opening at the Smithsonian in 2012!

“Shadowland” by Heidi Whitman

Heidi Whitman - Shadowland. Now showing at Christopher Henry Gallery in New York through April 23, 2011

The Christopher Henry Gallery in New York is showing a cool exhibit currently by Boston based artist Heidi Whitman.  Entitled “Shadowland,” Whitman’s technique involves painstakingly hand-cutting elaborate shapes out of painted paper. The artist’s intricate creations chart out a matrix of roads resembling modern city grids, which are evocative of spaces both seen and unseen. These multi-dimensional, delicate structures juxtapose flat well-defined surfaces with breaks in the sheets of paper, directing us into the intangible and otherworldly landscape of shadows, which the floating shapes cast.

EXTREME CLOSEUP!

“Shadowland” by Heidi Whitman is showing at the Christopher Henry Gallery in New York until April 23, 2011.  While you are inside the gallery, don’t forget to visit the second floor and see Olek’s “Knitting Is For Pussies” exhibit which will be on display until the end of May, 2011.  The Christopher Henry Gallery is located at 127 Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.
