Julia Whitney Barnes mosaic commission at Brooklyn School of Inquiry6/17/2013
I just completed work on a permanent mosaic commission at the Brooklyn School of Inquiry, 50 Avenue P, Brooklyn, NY. I worked with the art teacher Nanna Tannier, along with 75 gifted and talented third graders. The theme of the mosaic is ancient to contemporary Mexico, which the students studied in social studies and also made individual drawings based on Mexico in art class. I looked at and scanned the hundred-plus drawings the students made and researched the weighty topic during a trip to Mexico City this spring. Of the many artists that have taken on this theme, ones of particular interest for me are: Juan O’Gorman, Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera. This was the first project I had collaborated on with kids and found the experience a ton of fun, hard work and rewarding. The mosaic was installed on the 4th floor of the school and am happy that it will be enjoyed by countless students and staff in the years to come.
111 Front St., #208, Dumbo, Brooklyn. Hours are Saturdays 1 PM - 6 PM
For this tART exhibition, tART co-organizers and co-curators, Kathleen Vance and Jodie Lyn Kee-Chow, examine the multifaceted aspects of their collective through an archive of member projects. A table doubles as an archive of the past as well as a work-station for a future zine that visitors are invited to make.
One room is devoted entirely to a slideshow of images of the collective, from 2005 to the present. Also on display are three tART projects by Anna Lise Jensen: a reading by tART members of Tania Brughuera's Migrant Manifesto; a collaboration with the performance-publishing duo, Ladies of the Press, UK; and responses to an Open Call that Jensen placed within the collective and on Wooloo.org, for submissions to a contemporary, feminist dinner table.
For the the second part of the exhibition, Vance and Lyn Kee-Chow are inviting a guest curator to create a new exhbition with tART, on a theme rooted in recent discussions within the collective - on aesthetics and politics.
First part of exhibition: June 8th - June 23rd
Second part open June 28th. Organized by damali abrams, Jodie Lyn Kee-Chow, Deborah Pohl and Kathleen Vance.

Melissa Staiger - Solo Show at Janet Kurnatowski Gallery12/5/2012
Janet Kurnatowski Gallery is pleased to present “Triangle Works”, a solo exhibition of Melissa Staiger. The show will be open from Nov 23rd – Dec 23rd, 2012 with an opening reception for the artist on Friday Nov 30th, from 7-9 pm.
Staiger employs the core principles of painting in her work: color, light, shape, texture and line in order to tell a dynamic story. The protagonist of her acrylic narratives is the triangular shape, the mood and essential presence of this motif ebbs and flows due to her lively experiments with simultaneous contrast and other phenomena produced by the specificity of color interactions.

The Quantum Effect - Group Show, curated by David Gibson
November 30, 2012 - January 13, 2013
Reception: Nov 30, 7-10 pm
Featuring artists Jonathan Feldschuh, MaDora Frey
, Thomas Frontini, Carter Hodgkin, Elissa Levy, Anne Arden McDonald, Jeanne Tremel, Michael Zansky
There are three questions that occur to anyone who looks at a work of art: What?...Why?...How? The work of art has a purpose in informing our view of the world, and perhaps, if it is successful enough, in effecting the world itself by adding a layer of meaning to what is known. “The Quantum Effect” explores the relationship between beauty, the known, and the unknown. It relates to a shared understanding through the standards of scale and perspective, parsing the degree to which art represents a paradoxical view of reality.

Julia Whitney Barnes East Village mosaic featured in The Villager8/16/2012
BY BONNIE ROSENSTOCK | When visual artist Julia Whitney Barnes began her six-month SPARC (Seniors Partnering with Artists Citywide) residency at the Sirovich Senior Center, she immediately proposed creating a lasting legacy. Inspired by 2,300-year-old Hellenist mosaics she admired during a residency in Eretria, Greece, she envisioned using that vibrant art form to transform four cemented-over former balconies in the main ballroom/auditorium of the center at 331 E. 12th St. between First and Second Aves.
