Start your walk on 50th Ave near Vernon, with (appropriately) A.R.T. @ Open Door, then head next door to Dorian Café on the corner of Vernon and 50th for some “salt” photos. Heading north on Vernon, Modern Spaces will be hosting large paintings, and nearby are photos at Testaccio’s. Across the street you will find panoramic images in Douglas Elliman Realty, and around the corner on 47th Rd, the Jesse Winter Retrospective is on view at the cute Ten10 Studios carriage house. Neon lights the next stop, giving you an opportunity to peek into one of the many residences along Vernon [47th Ave]. Further up the Blvd, pop into Matted LIC, then cross over for a slice and old-world charm at Manducatis Rustica while you drink in art. Taking a walk towards the river, get an amazing view from the 8th floor of the brand new TFCornerstone apartments, where there are 5 solo shows in gallery-like apartments overlooking Manhattan. Head back to Vernon Blvd via 5-25 46th Ave for The Crew’s Opening, then back on Vernon, where Evandro Tech Motors once again has cleared out their vintage cars to show the vintage car photos and other amazing works of LIC’s living legend, Tony Vaccaro. While there, experience a glimpse and taste of Peru. On your way to the Open’s Opening Party at The Local on 44th Ave, finish your Vernon Blvd Nabe Night crawl at PaintCan Studios on 10th St, to see a few of the many members of LICArtists who will be showing in alternative places throughout LIC.


A.R.T. (American Road Tar and other Discoveries)

May 14-18 // Noon-2am Reception May 14 // 5-7 Chuck Baker, photographer It is a photographer’s job to be an observer – to see the unseen, to notice the un-noticed, to document, to record, to make visual sense of the world around us. These are simple compositions. Beauty found in the obscure – the byproduct of keeping one’s eyes open and carrying an I-Phone. Thank You Mr. Jobs! Open Door Restaurant 10-09 50th Ave 718.361.8589


Black & White Film Photographs by Greg M. Stowell May 14-18 // Reception May 14 // 6:30 - 8 (50% off beer and wine) The title refers to the silver salt process in gelatin silver print making, the shakers on tables in “old school” city diners and of course, the telling of tall tales by seafaring “old salts” gathering at pubs. frankfrdgallery. net/ Dorian Café 10-01 50th Ave 718.937.1120

OUTSIDE, LOOKING IN: Times Square & Beyond

Paintings by ELINORE SCHNURR May 14-18 // [TIME TBD] Reception May 14 // 5-7 My paintings have always involved people in urban spaces, but in different ways. I wander the city sometimes, searching out the scene or event that will capture my imagination, with the intent to put it into my own visual language. When I find something, I try to capture it with a sketch, or by using my camera as a sketchbook, and making a note to return another day with my pochade box or easel. Most of my paintings are of New York City and its incredible diversity. Modern Spaces 47-42 Vernon Blvd 718.784.1110


May 14-18 // 12-11pm Reception May 14 // 7pm While traveling through the streets of New York, photographer Hilma Krla was captivated by the evidence of human needs affecting everyday life. From people to rubble, these photographs reveal a certain irony often underlying everyday encounters in the Big Apple. Testaccio Restaurant 47-30 Vernon Blvd 718.937.2900

IN & OUT OF TIME: 360° Panoramic Images

May 14-16 // 9am-6pm by appt Reception May 14 // 5:30-8pm Rafael Octavio Gonzalez’s work allows us to look at everyday places in extraordinary ways by playing with space and time and bringing 360° views into one plane. The Long Island City-bred artist illuminates intimate details of our world in panorama through multiple images, vibrant colors, exposures, and composites. The images magnify life in a way that creates intimacy in its rich detail and luminous surrealism. These fairytale-like works capture the beautiful innocence of looking at something for the first time. Produced by Zoescope Studio. Douglas Elliman Real Estate 47-37 Vernon Blvd 917.386.6164
