Wes Anderson Art Show

Spoke Art is proud to present their sixth annual Wes Anderson art exhibit, "Bad Dads" - a group show of over 70 artists, being held as an exclusive weekend pop-up show at Joseph Gross Gallery in New York City's vibrant Chelsea arts district. "Bad Dads" began six years ago as a pop-up exhibition curated by gallery owner Ken Harman and has now blossomed through the years into a highly anticipated, memorable, and often costumed art event.

Santi Moix: A Moment

Santi Moix’s works have long been characterized by their accumulation of saturated biomorphic forms that are simultaneously figurative, narrative and abstract. In this vein, these new canvases mark a continuation of his signature collaged aesthetic. Moix works quite rapidly, exploring inspirations, ideas, and stories through a mass of studies in watercolor on paper pinned to the walls of his studio in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard.

Through August 14th

PortraBox At The 2nd Annual Antique Car Rally

Yesterday we brought out the newly-built, custom-designed PortraBox, our mobile portrait station that takes the prettiest selfies you ever did see.  Together with Creatively Wild and the DUMBO.IS, we helped make Sunday afternoon a colorful craft party / antique car collector's dream.  Check out the photos after the jump below, and contact us if you'd like to rent the PortraBox for an event this summer!

Stanley Whitney, Dance the Orange

Following time spent in Italy and then later in Egypt in the mid-1990s, Whitney developed the weighty, almost architectural approach that has now become his signature style. Rhythmic and lyrical, with a combination of pre-ordained structure and improvisation inspired in part by his love of jazz, the square-format paintings arrange rectangles of vivid, single colors in a deliberately irregular grid, with the close-fitting, many-hued “bricks” or “tiles” stacked vertically and arrayed in horizontal bands.

Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland                       

This exhibition will bring to light the curious history of Wonderland, presenting an engaging account of the genesis, publication, and enduring appeal of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  From here, the ethos of Alice and the universe of Wonderland took hold of our imagination, and—150 years later—we are still following her down the rabbit hole.
