A one-hour film about a remote corner of Queens, near Greenpoint,
once known as Blissville. The video explores the character(s) of the town
and leads to the discovery of a nearby Romani / Gypsy village which was
the largest gathering of Romani in the US in the 1930's.
Screening of the one hour video will be followed by a Q & A.
Prospect Range is pleased to present Street Record, an exhibition of photographs by Brooklyn photographer Reuben Radding. A reception for the artist will be held on December 2nd, 6-9 p.m.
Radding's work accelerates the tradition of urban street photography with uncanny timing and an eye for the feverish dynamism of urban celebration and unselfconscious social interaction. The genre is alive and well in his hands.
NOTE: Gallery will be closed on December 24th, 30th and 31st
John Wilkes paints directly on photographs of the Gowanus Canal taken at night. The images disintegrate beneath the brushwork, and hover between the surface quality of the painting and the moody tone of the original exposure. The works range on size but all of them display a master's painterly touch combined with a deep familiarity with place and time.
An exhibition of drawings and paintings by Dan Drossman.
Drossman's work uses elements of graffiti, cartooning and abstraction to create dynamic, comical and sometimes dark images that reflect the artist's struggle with chronic back pain. His process is both cathartic for him and accessible to his audience through a deft use of line, color and other formal elements. Works range in size from small to large, and employ marker, acrylic, charcoal and mixed media on paper and canvas.
