In this one­ night only show, Reade will present a collection of intimate moments shared by couples she has observed at Rockaway Beach. Whether sharing a picnic, long laughs, or a lazy limb­ entwined nap on a beach blanket, this series presents the small moments of tenderness between lovers away from the hurried climate of New York City.

Wednesday, April 13: Asylum

This obsessive-compulsive photo series of my everyday life started as an Instagram project in 2012, when I moved to New York from Croatia. The images are always taken in the same manner—my forehead and eyes in the foreground, and the main subject in the background. The expression of the eyes varies in keeping with the scene behind me. 

I did not know where this project would take me. It all started as an interest in observing the process of transformation. I would take photos all the time, in all places and situations. 

In 2014, I applied for political asylum in the United States.

“Glitches in the Grass” is a collaborative effort by 8 young artists to create a millennial’s perspective on a post-modern garden. In a world where one can experience nature through technology, the sublime has been redefined. Witnessing nature without flesh has become speculative only to the invisible eye of automatic reproduction, and provides perception beyond ordinary sight within it’s interchangeable digital filters.

Sunday, April 10: Diana Teeter 365 day project

In April of last year Diana Teeter presented herself with a challenge: paint one 4" x 4" painting every day for 365 days, no excuses allowed. Inspired by artists - such as Lorraine Loots' Paintings for Ants - progress their art skills rapidly by doing this, She wanted to see what would happen if she spent just one hour or so a day to polish her craft. Now almost 365 days later she has painted through good days and bad, illness and joy. Diana painted foods that she loves, cute animals, and historic happenings throughout the year.
