Beyond the Bedroom at Norte Maar

At The L Magazine, Paul D'Agostino selects several must-see exhibitions, including "Beyond the Bedroom" at Norte Maar, a group exhibition that features work from Jason Andrew's personal collection. I haven't been over to check out the show, but since my name is on the roster, I suspect this painting, which found its way into Jason's collection during BOS2012, is included. (Shameless plug: Stop by my next open studio on September 8 and 9 where work for my upcoming show at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT, will be up before packing and shipping commense. ) D'Agostino writes that

Many visitors to this landmark Bushwick apartment gallery are familiar with Jason Andrew's private collection of artwork because it adorns walls just steps away from those adorned by curated exhibitions. Now, however, for a truly sweet treat of a summer group show, Andrew has decided to turn things a bit inside-out by filling out all of Norte Maar's walls with works by over two dozen artists in his holdings, from younger darlings of the local art scene to more mature members, let us say, of the broader art world establishment. Expect an exceptional display of various styles and fine taste, and expect more than a few surprises as well. This show is by appointment only, so contact the gallery and book your date now.
The exhibition features work by so many great artists, including Man Bartlett, Daniel Brustlein, Hermine Ford, Ryan Michael Ford, Rico Gatson, Ben Godward, Cooper Holoweski, Andrew Hurst, Norman Jabaut, Kirsten Jensen, Ellen Letcher, Amy Lincoln, Bjoern Meyer-Ebrecht, Thomas Micchelli, Brooke Moyse, Mario Naves, Larry Poons, Cathy Nan Quinlan, Oliver Ralli, John Silvis, Austin Thomas, Julie Torres, Jack Tworkov, and Paul A'Agostino himself. Selections from Jason's zine collection as well as works from his historic dance photography collection are also on display.
