New York!  Time’s a-wastin’ if you want to see two great exhibits underneath one roof.  Until June 26, 2011 at Sloan Fine Art in New York, you can see Aaron Smith’s “Coterie of the Wooly-Woofter” as well as Anthony Iacono’s “Victor Victoria.”  The best way to describe Aaron Smith’s portraits in a word is “juicy.”  Smith has painted Victorian and Edwardian gentleman using very rich and vivid colors and each view will make you reconsider the “straight and narrow” back story we’ve been fed about these generations gone by.

Anthony Iacono’s exhibit “Victor Victoria” repurposes androgynous Victorian miniatures, incorporating a variety of found and handmade elements to create fetishized, narrative portraits.  Using objects such as Play-Doh, toy fragments and collectibles, you’ll find your mind trapped in the worlds Iacono has created long after you’ve left Sloan Fine Art.

Both exhibits close on June 26, 2011.

Sloan Fine Art is located at 128 Rivington Street in Manhattan.

Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again. Now showing at Sloan Fine Art in NYC through March 26, 2011

After the tremendous success of last year’s “Single Fare,” an exhibit comprised of hundreds of artists making art on used MTA Subway cards, Sloan Fine Art in New York is now presenting the sequel:  “Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again.”  The opening night gala on March 17, 2011 was quite a scene.  Proceeds from the sales last night benefited Transportation Alternatives (transalt.org) and Alliance for the Arts’ NYC ARTS (NYC-ARTS.org) and the gallery was packed to the rafters for art afficianados to add to their collections while raising money for great causes.

Sloan Fine Art in New York has a not to be missed exhibit celebrating Alternative Press Magazine’s 25th anniversary.  The exhibit features rarely seen photos, works of art from rock stars, past AP magazine covers and rock-inspired art.  There’s one slight catch:  like rock and roll goes, this exhibit is only in town for 3 days – so you have no time to waste!

Partial gallery view of AP covers

On display, you’ll see works from: Adam Jones (Tool), Andy The Butcher Mrotek (The Academy Is), Black Francis (Pixies), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Greg Craola Simkins, Jayme Thornton, Joby J. Ford (The Bronx), Jordan Buckley (Every Time I Die), Justine Frischmann (Elastica), Marilyn Manson, Marina Chavez, Marc Porter McKnight (Atreyu), Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio), Morgan Slade (Miss Derringer), Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Ralf Strathmann, Roberto Chamorro, Sean Murphy, Shepard Fairey, Shirley Manson (Garbage), Tim Armstrong (Rancid) and Travie McCoy (Gym Class Heroes) among many others.

Baby's on Fire by Marilyn Manson

It’s hard to pick my favorite works because there were so many cool pieces on display, but I liked two works from the Mansons alot.  Shirley Manson of the band Garbage as well as Marilyn Manson!

Peking Noodle (Ode to Louise Bourgeois) by Shirley Manson

Another one of my favorites was from Tim Armstrong of Rancid (see below).

Sloan Fine Art on the Lower East Side in New York has a great show that just opened.  “Nice To Meet You” is a mixed-media extravaganza whereby 9 artists whose works are admired by Sloan Fine Art were asked to invite two artists of their choice to show in this exhibit.  The result is 27 works of art by very diverse artists.  The works in this exhibit are very affordable (ranging from $300 – $4,500) so whether you are a long time art aficionado or are just building your collection, this is a great exhibit to check out.  “Nice To Meet You” runs from now until July 31, 2010 at Sloan Fine Art which is located on 128 Rivington Street.

After the jump, see a few more images from this cool exhibit.
