Art Connects New York Inaugural Benefit
Last Wednesday I went to the Spattered Columns Exhibition Space hosted Art Connects’ Inaugural Benefit and Auction. The event featured over 30 emerging artists who created new works specifically for the benefit by altering the pages of books. Some artists who's works stuck out to me: Sarah G. Sharp, Allie Rex, Gigi Chen, and Shawn Bishop Leo. The works were priced incredibly reasonably - events like this are a great opportunity to add some edgy work to your collection at low cost while contributing to a fantastic non-profit.
Art Connects New York has two programs serving New York City. The Art Placement program places works by New York City based artists in public areas of the city’s social service agencies, with curators tailoring each. Art Connects also runs Spattered Columns Exhibition Space (491 Broadway, 5th floor), which is a gallery that shows the works of New York City based artists who do not have commercial gallery representation – completely free of charge. Since it can be very difficult for younger artists to find spaces to show, having a gallery in the middle of Manhattan focused specifically on this spectrum of artists is invaluable.
