Oliver Vernon was back on the east coast last week to attend the opening reception for his latest exhibition of works, Renegade Trajectories. We were lucky enough to host friends and admirers, as well as his lovely wife Anita and daughter. It was a great time, thanks to everyone that came by.

On a five-story tall building, two blocks away from the Williamsburg Bridge (and Peter Lugar Steakhouse!) is a new mural recently completed by Greg Lamarche. Commissioned by Colossal Media, this reproduction of “Free Fall” is hard to miss. From Colossal Media:
“[We have] created The Big Brush Project because we have something to say not something to sell, walls like this one highlight our aim to promote precision, dedication, ethics, and passion. For us It’s about taking time, it’s about getting it right and were proud to do so with like minded artists. Be on the lookout for more artwork on big walls around NYC.”
Congratulations to the artist and his collaborators, we’re excited to see future projects. You can see this one in person at Bedford and Broadway in Brooklyn, NY.

Kicking off our solo exhibition schedule, Ian Francis brings us Season 1 Episode 0 -- a show inspired by the reality and unreality of contemporary TV. Comprised of 12 canvas paintings and ten drawings on acrylic panel, each work is a scene unfolding within Francis' theme. Thanks to everyone who made it to the opening and to the artist for this great offering.

Italian Huffington Post gives us a great slideshow of the different variations of Kris Kuksi's Churchtank series. The latest version, Churchtank Type 11, is the largest to date--we'd be surprised to see one any bigger!

On view through June 9th, 2013 at Japan Society, Tomokazu Matsuyama will be participating in an exhibition regarding the influence of classical Japanese print on contemporary art. In this article available online, we're given a chance to see Matsuyama's offering with his vibrant textile installation and overlapping paintings (above image courtesy Cool Hunting.) If you're in the area, Matsuyama will be giving an artist lecture at Harvard University, moderated by David Howell, Professor of Japanese History, on April 25th, 2013.

After many years on the third floor of a building, neighbored by other galleries, we are so fortunate to invite everyone to our brand new, ground floor space. Just one door over on 28th Street, we haven’t moved far but the difference is astounding. On a block with so much new activity, Joshua Liner Gallery’s new exhibition space offers artists an opportunity to showcase their work with 500+ square feet. Please enjoy some of the images from the inaugural group show, Direct Address—we look forward to having you by soon!
