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!

Pictured above is Betty Boop as Ophelia (after Millais and Fleischer),
accompanied by the artist Alfred Steiner. As with all his work, it definitely deserves a closer look!

"There was a time, as recently as the 1980s, when storefronts, murals, banners, barn signs, billboards, and even street signs were all hand-lettered with brush and paint. But, like many skilled trades, the sign industry has been overrun by the techno-fueled promise of quicker and cheaper. The resulting proliferation of computer-designed, die-cut vinyl lettering and inkjet printers has ushered a creeping sameness into our landscape. Fortunately, there is a growing trend to seek out traditional sign painters and a renaissance in the trade." -SIGN PAINTERS

As a wonderful antecedent to Matsuyama’s inclusion in Edo Pop, a new exhibition at the Japan Society, CoolHunting gives us a little background on the artist and a look into his studio:
"Matsu grew up mostly in Japan, but spent several years in California before moving to NYC, where he’s lived for the past decade since completing his MFA at Pratt. His international background and street art friends clearly inform his work, but it’s his fascination with color and art history that really leads to such abstract, yet highly controlled works."
Thanks to Karen Day for these great images from her studio visit.
