Invisible Dog resident artist Daniel Horowitz made one drawing per day for a year. To show in this weekend's big opening.
It’s a big weekend at our little slice of Chelsea — the cavernous Invisible Dog art gallery on Bergen near Smith. The gallery is celebrating its third season with four new exhibitions, and hosting its once-a-year open studios, in which the general public can peruse the work spaces and works of the gallery’s resident artists, who often provide wine, snacks and beer gratis while you browse.
The exhibitions open Saturday at 6 p.m.
Award-winning artist and illustrator Daniel Horowitz will present the 365 drawings and paintings that he created, one a day, for a year (including the surreal horse above). The works were created in different sizes using different mediums, and all are framed. Discover Horowitz’s blog Drawing of the Day.
In another exhibition, photographer Malcolm Brown portrayed each of the 32 artists in residence at Invisible Dog, a group that includes sculptors, illustrators, toy makers, painters, jewelry designers, photographers and welders, and some quite successful and well-known, in their studios.
On the main gallery on the ground floor, artist R. Justin Stewart creates a gigantic spiderweb that’ll take over the space in Stewart’s interpretation of his research into the Jewish concept of the Messiah.
The gallery is also part of the massive Chelsea Armory Arts Week. Indeed, it’s a big week to see art at the Invisible Dog, and across Gotham.
“For the opening of its new season, The Invisible Dog will become the focal point for these diverging interpretations of time, that we, as contemporaries, embody,” says Lucien Zayan, Invisible Dog gallery director.
