The Armory Show 2014 is upon us

 

Screen Shot 2014-02-15 at 4.30.42 PM

If you are an art lover, especially a modern or contemporary art lover, you know The Armory Show week is the week to take off and participate in all the great events that take place during those six days the first week of March, filled with art showcasing activities, parties, gallery openings, etc.

This year, as every year, The Armory show will be held on Piers 92 and 94 in the Midtown West area of Manhattan (12th Ave. & 55th Street). The 2014 fair will run from March 6th thru March 9th, from 12 pm to 7pm.

What began in 1913 as the first exhibition of modern art in the United States, has now morphed into this yearly event, likely the most important in the world of art, worldwide. It invites the world’s top galleries to showcase their best emerging, and existing artists. Collectors from all over the world descend to NYC to snatch up what is considered by many, as bargain-priced art today, likely future priceless works. I have seen works go for as low as $1000.

In addition to The Armory Show itself, there is usually other smaller shows happening around town that week, such as the Volta and the Scope Art Fairs, also showcasing emerging artists from around the world.

All the museums and galleries in New York will be welcoming the thousands of visitors, so check out your favorite gallery or museum and stop in. They usually have special events that week. The MoMA will have its usual Armory Party on Wednesday, The Guggenheim will host its Art After Dark party on Friday night, among many other celebrated red/blue carpet events.  The New York Times is one of this year’s media partners for the show, and one of my most trusted sources for all worthy events around the city, especially that week. So, make sure to use the NY Times as your guide.

Do not miss this great opportunity if you’re looking to start collecting, or add to your collection. It opens to the public on Thursday, March 6th and closes on Sunday, March 9th, running from 12 noon thru 7 pm.

To buy tickets online, please visit The Armory Show ticket page by clicking here, or go to this link: https://www.microspec.com/tix123/etic.cfm?code=ARMORY14#.Uv_XNl5DHAo

Volta, its sister show, a smaller one, will be downtown this year, in the SoHo area, at 82 Mercer, running concurrently to The Armory Show.  You can buy a joint ticket for access to both shows at the same page as The Armory Show tickets.

I will be reporting via Twitter and Instagram throughout the week, so make sure to tune into both accounts. Any other updates that may require longer entries, I will post here. So, stay tuned, and if you’re going to be there, and want to say hello, send me a digital shout out. I’ll be around town.

Rebel in NYC!

Rebel-PostHeadline

The concept of women in war is not foreign to us nowadays, but back during the period of the United States Civil War, it was an absolute taboo.

Award winning Director, Maria Agui Carter, researched, wrote, and is bringing to the screen the story of Loreta Velazquez, a Cuban immigrant who, disguised as a soldier, participated in the Civil War.

The film’s name is Rebel, Secret Solder of the American Civil War.

Loreta Velazquez’ story is long over due.

One would think her contributions, as a woman, as a soldier, as an immigrant, ended there, but she went on to write a book about her experiences in that daring endeavor as a soldier and spy. Loreta did not mask the brutal reality of war. Her story was told from the rare point of view of a woman, as a war insider.

Unfortunately, Loreta’s version threatened the one of those who sought to romanticize the war. As a result, she was erased from history. Her book was depicted a hoax. Her story was contradicted and questioned, among other attacks. And for a long time, these advocates of the Civil War were successful. Her story remained buried for centuries.

We owe Maria Agui Carter a huge debt of gratitude for not only unearthing this amazing story, but researching it, and bringing it to the screen. This is one of those independent films that everyone must see.

It’s astounding to see how the story of a brave woman, one who lived unconventionally over a century ago, could serve today as an inspiring example. Without a doubt, Loreta Velazquez overcame prejudice, adversity, the expectations that were set upon her as a young woman of those times, and she made lemonade out of lemons. Her life is an example that there’s no limit to what we can do, if we keep our eyes open and look beyond those boundaries set upon us.

Do yourself a favor. Treat yourself to this film.

If you’re in New York, it is playing tonight, Saturday February 8th, 2014, at Barnard College, at 6pm at the HELD auditorium, as part of the Athena Film Festival. There is no snow tonight, so it may play to another packed audience, like it did in New Orleans and in Boston. You can purchase the tickets here: https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pe.c/9874376

Check out the many accolades this film is getting: http://rebeldocumentary.com/news/events/

Late last year, the film received much attention from the White House, when King Juan Carlos of Spain visited during Hispanic Heritage month.

For more details, you can visit Rebel’s Facebook page, and share this great story within your networks. https://www.facebook.com/Rebel.documentary

If you’re not in New York this weekend, or are unable to get tickets for tonight’s event, you can order the film from the PBS home video website. There are two versions:

1. For individual viewers:  http://www.shoppbs.org/product/index.jsp?productId=20713666

2. For Educators (AV Rights): http://teacher.shop.pbs.org/product/index.jsp?productId=20713676

You can also order it directly from the film’s website: http://rebeldocumentary.com/ where three versions are offered, the DVD as it was broadcast on PBS, the educational version, and the theatrical version, featuring the Director’s Cut.

For a sneak preview of the beautiful cinematography that brings this inspiring story to the screen, check out its 90-second preview on You Tube. http://youtu.be/dSO-Vo5fnqA

Night views of the city – Upper Midtown East

After having visited a friend near Radio City, I took a walk uptown and was able to capture night time views of some of my favorite spots on upper midtown east, especially on Fifth Avenue. Though I stopped at the MoMA, it was quite crowded and didn’t lend itself for good pictures. But I do […]
