It’s a nice night to be in Brooklyn…
The Journal Gallery is proud to present Brooklyn Queens, curated by Eddie Martinez. In Brooklyn Queens, Martinez, a Brooklyn-based painter, has assembled a collection of works by six artists whose work he has followed over the years, artists that provide inspiration in addition to being friends and neighbors. Ranging from the gloss-inspired portraiture of Katherine Bernhardt, to the abstractions of Tauba Auerbach and Gina Beavers, to the appropriation based work of Sam Moyer and Harriet Salmon, and the snapshot-style paintings of Jeanette Mundt, Brooklyn Queens is a mini survey of those working within Martinez’s circle.

Brandon Friend sent us over images of 4 newly completed pieces from his Starving Artist series. In his words, they are all
“30” x 30″ paintings of the inner contents of my friends refrigerators (most of which have all graduated with a degree in art). Good time for good ol’ conversation and fun about sustaining life and a plentiful harvest!”
