Artwork delivery: Platform Project Space, NYC

Update (March 9): For snaps of the installation, check out Joanne Mattera Art Blog here. Watch VernissageTV's video of the blogpix opening.

Today (March 3) I'm delivering 5 paintings for the "blogpix" show to Denise Bibro Fine Art's Platform Project Space. Organized by Olympia Lambert, the show is view March 5 – 28th, 2009, with an opening reception scheduled for this Thursday, 6-8 pm. Lambert invited four top art bloggers to curate the show: Roberta Fallon & Libby Rosof, Joanne Mattera and Hrag Vartanian. Each bring to their blogs an unparalled voice and writing style. "As art lovers demand more topical coverage with added visuals, once-a-month review simply cannot compete with daily feedback, as the information superhighway has become 24/7 on demand full-access." Lambert writes in her press release. "blogpix is a dedicated showcase where the digital intersects the human. In 2009 everyone is pressed for time, fed by instantaneous information on demand. From Twitter 'tweets' to Facebook 'status updates,' today’s internet is a rapid, ever-evolving pixelated organism made up of conjugal ones and zeroes. With the influence of art journalism’s printed media in decline, the art blogosphere is rapidly stepping up to fill the void. With their curatorial choices, our blogger curators spotlight six talented artists working in a variety of mediums and genres." Artists include myself, Ben La Rocco, Christopher Davison, Steven Alexander, Reese Inman, and Julie Karbenick. Last week the recently redesigned (and renamed) ArtCat flagged the show as a Pick.

"blogpix," organized by Olympia Lambert. Platform Project Space, New York, NY. Opening reception, March 5, 6-8pm. Through March 28.

On Saturday at 5pm, a blogger panel will convene. Panelists include show curators Joanne Mattera, Hrag Vartanian, Roberta Fallon, Libby Rosof, as well as Bill Gusky, and Brent Burket.
