After 42 years of living in the New York Art World, and 9 years working in it, I have decided that it's time to put up a shingle. I'm opening a new art project space in Williamsburg under the name PLAYSPACE. It's located at 38-C Marcy Avenue, entrance on Hope Street, three short blocks and around a corner from the L train at Lorimer Street.
The space is dedicated to installation and sculpture, and to using its small area as a means of promoting work that deals in scale, mass, and accrual of detail. Measuring only 10 x 18 x 10 feet, we mean to use every last inch and impress upon vistors the intimacy of art in a world where the attention is increasingly away from an aesthetic event and closer to a financial one.
Artists exhibiting here will include:
MARY ANN STRANDELL
THE FIRST EXHIBITIOON OPENS ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, FROM 7:00 TO 9:00 PM
