The Last Supper 2012

We invite you to celebrate the iconic 24hr Court Square Diner with us as we wrap up the festival with a special “PAY YOUR OWN CHECK” event at the diner. We have a special gift for the owners Steve and Nick and would love all participating artists and visitors to meet us there on Sunday May, 20 at 6pm. Owners Steve and Nick Kanellos are for the second year running our Platinum Sponsors. They have given freely to support the arts in a year when the city is proposing a $47 million in cut to the arts budget. Support your supporters and let’s all make it a groovy closing with a side of Disco Fries!

9 DAYS CELEBRATING THE ARTS IN LONG ISLAND CITY

T

his year’s festival is packed with great stuff, much of it free. We hope you enjoy the increased amounts of Open Studios and our larger selection of group shows and exhibitions. Large amounts of column inches are created discussing the ever-changing skyline in LIC with apparent new buildings springing up almost ‘overnight’. With the increase in residences the new residents need new restaurants, food stores and services. What about the artists? Well although we have no scientific surveys, we believe that the amount of artists working in LIC has also grown exponentially and this year’s festival is a testament to the huge numbers of artists working in every conceivable genre. We are very lucky this year to have gained the support of property companies like Rockrose and HR Reit that have donated new spaces for pop-up galleries and have a greater selection of the kinds of art that is created in this great borough. With our extra square footage this year we have been able to feature more sculpture than before with Karen Dimit, Eliot Lable, Jack Howard-Potter, Chie Shimizu, Beth Williams, Kenny Greenberg and others all showing this year. Another new feature this year is our Nabe Night Out which over four nights encourages you to experience four separate areas within the festival. Tuesday 15th is Courthouse/23rd, Wednesday 16th is Queens Plaza, Thursday 17th is Vernon Boulevard and Friday 18th is Jackson Ave. On these nights you will find a range of events and receptions that will help you plan your evening. For example on Tuesday evening we encourage you to visit the Jeffrey Leder Gallery then perhaps stroll over to The Industry’s Rooftop Party on 44th Drive and finally onto the multiple receptions at the LIC Art Center and Reis Studios. We have organized the various receptions and events to allow you the possibility of not missing out on any of them because of conflicting times. Please also take the time to visit some of our incredible restaurants and local establishments. Many of them support the festival through donations of free food for events and a large number have agreed to mount special exhibitions; some notable places where you can find great food and art includes Manducatis Rustica, Alobar, LIC Market, & Malu. Hey, you can even get your teeth fixed and look at art at Hunters Point Dental!

“LIC is the perfect spot for a school that has educational innovation as its driving force. We are able to easily integrate the arts because they are all around us. And the people who live here--be it long-timers or new families--are open-minded and get what we are doing. We can’t imagine being anywhere else.” - Francis Mechner, Queens Paideia School LICArtsOpen.org || For Vendor, Artist, Performance information, please call: 347 260 9024 || info@licartsopen.org

Corrections & Additions

EXHIBITIONS

THE STORE 48

Stephen Ballard Jackson 2 This work seeks to explore the urban landscape and the artificial environment. By abstracting geometric forms and linking each form directly to the palette of the city, the work seeks to reconstruct the container that is a city. Each geometric form is both imposing as well as inviting. To contrast with as well as enhance these abstractions cardboard is placed in and off of the canvas. The cardboard is a physical connection to the urban environment while the paintings function as symbolic reconstructions of it.

“For many years I played in ‘The B-52s.’ I also write music for film and television and most recently composed the score for HBO’s ‘Bored To Death.’ I moved to LIC in the early ‘80s. It seemed like uncharted territory. I liked the wide open sky and it felt like a very creative place. The neighborhood. The people. There’s a real community here. For many years it felt like a secret. It’s like a small town one subway stop away from Manhattan. We get the best of both worlds.” - Pat Irwin, Musician/Composer
