A Status Update . . . Made out of Clay!

Ever since its debut in a living room on Flatbush Avenue, the “G-Train Salon,” has introduced various audiences to emerging artists through conversation and inquiry.  Harnessing the intimacy and accessibility of the salons of yore, this interactive exhibition series continues to thrive by collaborating with a variety of offbeat partners/spaces throughout Brooklyn – and Queens as of this fall.  Next up?

WHO: Mixed-media magician, Fanny Allié. Manipulator of hair, clay, ink, vintage acoutrements, video and more! www.fannyallie.com

WHAT: "Somewhere Else" Solo Exhibition and Salon Discussion with the Artist.  A collection of text sculptures made from clay.  One sentence hanging in the storefront will be legible while a collection of other clay sentences will be displayed in piles.  Twice a week, the artist will rotate the sentences to pique the passerby's curiosity.

WHEN:    Wednesday, November 3, 2010
                 Discussion with the artist at 7pm
