So Why Go All the Way to Newark?

Haven't had much to report the past few weeks. Still working out what the next print will be. There may be a show coming up in December, but I'll wait on announcing that until I have more details. But I did run across one thing worth mentioning here.

I was looking at the entertainment section of yesterday's Star Ledger and saw something very familiar. There was a full page review of a current 3 person show at Aljira, the well known and highly regarded art space in Newark. One of the artists is Dahlia Elsayed, a well established artist in the metropolitan area, and a friend of the Studio. The article included one image of each artist's work, hers being the one on the right in the above image. I recognized it immediately as I have seen it the Studio. Dahlia brought it to one of our critique sessions a little over a year ago, where I recall it got a very positive response. I've got nothing against Aljira (I was in a few shows there back in the 90's) and if you're in the Newark area it might be worth a stop. But this just goes to show that if you want to see some cool art long before it gets to the walls of a hip urban gallery, come to one of our critique nights. And maybe someday you can brag about knowing some interesting artist/artwork before everyone else in your crowd did.
