Fitzroy Gallery is pleased to announce that Drew Conrad's work will be included in the exhibition based on Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel, The House of the Seven Gables.
The House of the Seven Gables will be on view February 23 through April 7, 2013 at University Galleries of Illinois State University.
Fitzroy Gallery is pleased to announce Georgi Tushev's participation in Lucie Fontaine's project, "Estate". His work will be on display at Marianne Boesky Gallery's New York Upper East Side gallery space at 118 East 64th Street, a historical functioning three-story townhouse.
Lucie Fontaine and her employees will live in the house on August 15 and will leave on October 15. In the first month Lucie Fontaine and her employees will invite artists to live with them in the space and display their works within this frame, which – enriched by furniture selected by antique dealer Jon Howell – will be partly domestic and partly commercial. The works will be gathered in a way that is deliberately spontaneous and therefore the list of the artists included will be released only on the day that Lucie Fontaine will open to the public on September 15.
Fitzroy Gallery is pleased to announce Colby Bird's acceptance at Art Basel Miami Beach Art Positions, December 6 - 9, 2012.

LOCUST PROJECTS’ TENTH ANNUAL SMASH AND GRAB FUNDRAISER
Each year our event brings contemporary artists and collectors together to help support Locust Projects. The “Smash and Grab” event is Locust Projects’ largest source of revenue for the year. The proceeds provide essential funding for programming and special projects.
How it works: There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The event revolves around a raffle , for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at Random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

Fitzroy Gallery participating in Artlog's Artcrawl!
SoHo is New York’s original art capital. Before million dollar lofts replaced the artist studios, crack dens, and nightclubs, the streets between Broadway and West Broadway were the playgrounds of Warhol, Haring, Basquiat, Boone, and Castelli.
With Artlog and Grey Area now ensconced in a SoHo building once occupied by Carroll Dunham, Laurie Simmons, Roberta Smith, Terry Winters, and Cindy Sherman, it’s hard not to think of the time when the area was the “center of the universe.” Only a few investment-savvy and lucky artists remain, but a host of galleries, non-profits, and now online art businesses tucked between Prada and Bloomingdales have been in SoHo from weeks to decades. While the LES seems to attract more notice, companies like Artlog, Grey Area, 20×200, Paddle 8, Interview, and Art in America and galleries like Suzanne Geiss and Clifton Benevento are creating a serious SoHo revival.
On Saturday, March 31st Artlog’s popular art crawl series takes art enthusiasts on a special journey through the new and old SoHo.

starring Haribo &
Raphael Amadeus Frankenstein
Welcome aboard Pilot Episode, a perpetual business-class lounge Opera. Live music, prop-comedy poetics, simulated refreshment carts, etc.
HARIBO is the combined raw flavors of multi-purpose artists Raul De Nieves, Jessie Stead, and Nathan Whipple. A master blend of early 21st century performance options, HARIBO released their debut single "Cookies n' Cream" in 2011 and have spent the last couple of years touring Brooklyn and select cities internationally, presenting their trademark cross-genre pop-operas to sold out crowds. HARIBO have appeared in numerous motion-pictures and are currently working on their epic sophomore effort "Illuminati Island" and several paintings.
Raphael Amadeus Frankenstein (R.A.F.) is a contemporary keyboard composer working in the modern style. Born in Milan and later adopted by Mormon families, R.A.F. studied at Julliard School of Music, periodically working with such luminaries as "The Boss" and composing scores for hit TV shows such as "Who's the Boss?" Renouncing the concert hall and determined to "take it out for the people" R.A.F. can be found performing his original works in diversified venues including diplomatic receptions, birthday parties, gallery openings, jazz outlets and piano lounges.
The concerts continue...please join us at Fitzroy Gallery on Saturday, February 18 at 7pm for
a set of Portuguese love songs by Holly and Davey Hawkins
a live performance by "Messages" with Taketo Shimada + Tres Warren
The 2nd LP from Messages is due out later in 2012 from De Stijl Records.
The concert series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "For January, just ask Alice", curated by Amy Granat and Joao Simoes. A limited edition LP of all the concerts will be available in March.
Highlights from Art Los Angeles Contemporary
January 21st, 2012
The art-fair-whose-name-nobody-can-remember (a.k.a. “the Barker Hangar fair”; a.k.a. Art Los Angeles Contemporary) is going on this weekend! If you missed the opening, with its lung-searing recreation of a 1968 Judy Chicago dry ice environment, there’s still plenty to see. It’s a manageable fair, size-wise, and for the most part very good. An informal survey of dealers as of Friday afternoon found optimism and some strong sales. The fair is heavy on contemporary LA galleries, which makes it handy for visitors to the city. Here are some highlights:
NYC gallery Fitzroy had part of their booth dedicated to new canvas prints and hi-fi stacks by Sean Dack.
Georgi Tushev: Strange Attractor
January 14 - February 25, 2012
Georgi Tushev: Strange Attractor presents paintings and a work on paper that investigate the effects of oil paint when exposed to extreme magnetic fields. Tushev’s signature works explore the dynamism of pigment, the physical possibilities of paint, and the transformation of matter. He uses pigments that contain high concentrations of iron that, when exposed to magnets, create textured, three-dimensional surfaces, where paint seemingly explodes off the picture plane. Tushev’s works on paper are made through a similar technique, though in water, where the magnetic fields separate the watercolor pigments into areas of black, white, and gray and create concentric rings and circular patterns.
Tushev’s abstract pictorial space is evocative of natural forms and biological processes. On the macro level, the work appears geological, celestial—like lunar terrain. On the micro level, it suggests a view from under the microscope—of cell division and mitosis. Tushev’s method is inherently experimental; his compositions are subject to varying degrees of chance and instability. His long-time scientific testing of material has resulted in works that are arresting in form and astonishing in process.
Strange Attractor is the first Los Angeles show for Tushev and his debut museum exhibition; it also marks the inauguration of NY/LA, the Museum’s new exhibition series that connects contemporary art on both coasts. Strange Attractor is organized by New York-based curator Jeffrey Uslip.
Tushev (b. 1969) was born in Bulgaria and lives and works in New York City. He earned a graduate degree from the National Academy of Fine Arts, Sofia, Bulgaria, and completed a residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute, New Mexico, and a Master Class of Painting in Amsterdam with painter Markus Lupertz.
Tushev’s work has been represented in solo exhibitions in San Francisco at Noma Gallery and in Sofia, Bulgaria, at XXL Gallery.
Thursday, January 26, 7:30 - 10pm.
E-N-E-R-G-Y will perform live at Fitzroy Gallery, accompanying the exhibition For January, just ask Alice, curated by Amy Granat and Joao Simoes.
E-N-E-R-G-Y is Coley Brown and Joseph Heffernan.
New work by Gibb Slife featured in "Blind Cut" at Marlborough Chelsea, Jan 19 2012-Feb 17 2012
Marlborough Chelsea is pleased to present "Blind Cut," a group exhibition curated by Jonah Freeman and Vera Neykov. The works included address diverse notions surrounding the themes of fiction or deception. This collection, spanning several generations from Dada to the present, poses questions regarding identity, authorship, originality and reality. The practices and methodologies range from: depictions of fictional places, imagined personas, inaccurate histories, invented language, urban utopias and complex, unrevealed material gestures.
