Scott Lickstein - Studio Hotline

The electric wall between us shields me from the warmth in your soul. Missing in this digital relationship are the inflections and intentions of your vocal range. With all the possibilities literally at our fingertips, there is no longer cause to compromise.

I can’t wait to hear your voice and share it with others. Call my studio in New York City at any hour and leave a message about my work or concerning any subject that interests you. My favorite calls will be posted to Youtube and shared on my website.

Calls are limited to three minutes so be concise. Please hold contact to one call per day. It would be great to know your name but anonymous is just fine. I will have access to your number but I will not investigate callers nor will your number be shared on of offline.

Thanks for taking part in this project.

THE ALL ROADS PROJECT EXHIBIT #4
Scott Lickstein at Chelsea, NYC’s Smallest Art Space.


Choice Cuts, Scott Lickstein @ The All Roads Project by NOWhere Limited.

February 7, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – “Choice Cuts,” a solo exhibit by Scott Lickstein marks the fourth show at NOWhere Limited’s “All Roads Project.”

The twenty square foot art space featured three paintings and two drawings from Lickstein’s recent output. Links to browse these works are now: here

About the Artist
The fervent pursuit of visual art, his own and others, fills the days of Scott Lickstein. His personal work arises from the agitation caused by paradoxical maxims. Grinding disparate imagery sparks ideas and visual juxtapositions that the logical mind has instinctively denied. Humans have been for some time evolving beyond the early necessity of pure instinct. Robert Motherwell declared collage as the most important discovery of the twentieth century. He wasn’t referring to the idea of cut and paste. He was pondering the exploration of infinite potential. Contemporary life is ocular bombardment. Content is overlapped beyond the veil of the conscious mind. Control and manipulation of this data is the game for now and for the foreseeable future for this artist.

For more about Scott Lickstein, please see his web site: ScottLickstein.com


NOWhere Limited’s All Roads Project is a new experiment in alternative exhibition space.
Conceived with a “waste not want not” mentality, artists Elisha Sarti and Scott Lickstein, co-founders of NOWhere Limited, converted their SUV into Chelsea’s smallest art space.

Scott Lickstein – Life In Flux

Traditionally, the art world “shuts down” for the Summer. It is a broad market perspective that sends the art collector for a well deserved ocean respite. It’s also a good time for art world transitions.

I’ve been involved in several off-season moves that will intensify my career as artist, dealer and art writer. New York City is on the very near horizon and I should be in position soon to conduct more studio visits, museum previews and exhibition reviews.

The Summer has also brought about the founding of my personal artist website. I’m offering up a new signed and numbered, archival, limited edition pigment print seven days a week. All of my artistic pursuits are updated daily on the site. Check in regularly to examine progress on my portfolio, ongoing projects and store. Please sign up here to receive a weekly digest via email highlighting all of the action.

Scroll down for a small selection of my work from this year. Two prints, a pair of photographs, a couple of projects, some paintings and now, yes, I have been branded with my own logo.

Elisha Sarti & Scott Lickstein – Make Art / Take Art

Elisha Sarti & Scott Lickstein - Make Art Take Art

We’ve hijacked NOWhere Limited to show our own work for three weeks. The opening is this Saturday at 4pm, hope to see you there. More on the show including opening night photos next week. Here is the official word on an interactive project that will run for the duration of the exhibit.

“Make Art/Take Art is a collaboration between Scott Lickstein and Elisha Sarti and perhaps…you! For this project, the artists have created 16 black ink drawings on collaged backgrounds as well as a stack of “blank” collaged surfaces. The drawings are displayed in a grid formation; the slot for each drawing on the grid is numbered. Interested parties are invited to take one of the exhibited drawings in exchange for their own drawing, which must be completed on site using one of the provided blank surfaces and black ink marker. The drawings on display will be constantly changing, so that a participant may take a piece that has not been drawn by Elisha or Scott but by a random participant. For the duration of the exhibit, each slot will also be available for sale online for $15. Buyers of each slot will acquire whatever random piece occupies the slot number at the time of purchase.”

Jeffrey Gitei Hall: Plastic Gold Mine

THE ALL ROADS PROJECT EXHIBIT #8
Jeffrey Gitei Hall at Chelsea, NYC’s Smallest Art Space.


Plastic Gold Mine, Jeffrey Gitei Hall, Metallic graphic Mylar, cardboard, brass wire and tape, 2013
On view @ The All Roads Project by NOWhere Limited, Thursday, March 21, 2013, 6-8:30pm.

March 19, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – This Thursday evening, March 21, “Plastic Gold Mine,” a sculptural installation by Jeffrey Gitei Hall will be on view as the eighth exhibit at NOWhere Limited’s “All Roads Project.” It’s a one night only viewing, from 6 until 8:30pm, curbside on West 24th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in the Chelsea neighborhood of NY, NY.

“The new sculptures aim to understand the ephemeral elements that affect the making and viewing of art,” says the artist. “My approach is to integrate the analysis of materials with the definition of an artwork independently from its medium. By defining the artwork’s behaviors and strategies, one can reinterpret the work each time it is recreated without losing essential meaning, even when its current medium becomes obsolete. It is working and creating with change.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
American artist Jeffrey Gitei Hall is known for his absurd and personal approach to formalism. Using banal, everyday materials like cardboard, plastic wrap, tape, and fabric, Jeffrey creates abstract sculpture and installations that are an investigation in reductive form and content. Jeffrey’s artwork references images, materials, and issues that are evident in science, philosophy, and art. The combination of these elements produces unique objects constructed through a bizarre set of reclaimed and repurposed behaviors. Although Jeffrey uses personal, historical and cultural context as elements within his work, he insists that his sculpture and installations are not about teaching or instructing the viewer.

Born in 1969, Jeffrey has lived in Japan and several cities in America while his father was in military service. He studied at the University of Nebraska-Omaha where he received a BFA in Painting and continued his training at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia where he received an MFA in Sculpture. He currently lives and works in New York, New York.

Angela Oaks – A Rainbow of Emotions

THE ALL ROADS PROJECT EXHIBIT #7
New Work by Angela Oaks Rolls into Chelsea, NYC on West 24th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, Thursday, March 7 March 14, 2013.


A Rainbow of Emotions, Angela Oaks @ The All Roads Project by NOWhere Limited, Thursday March 7, March 14, 2013, 6-8:30pm.

March 12, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – This Thursday evening, March 14th, “A Rainbow of Emotions,” a solo exhibit by Angela Oaks marks the seventh show at NOWhere Limited’s “All Roads Project.”

For one night only from 6 – 8:30pm, ten new mixed media works by Angela Oaks will be on view at All Roads’ twenty square foot display on 24th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues in New York City. Links to buy and browse these works are now: here

Artist Statement
“I see the processes of making a poem and making a painting as very similar. I often use text in my paintings and always try to induce synesthesia in my attempts to mash-up music, text and images. I have a 14-year-old son who would help me a lot in the studio when he was younger, he and his friends. So I think my work can rightly be characterized as childish because in many cases I would allow the children to do the work itself. It can best be described as a collaboration. Call and response. I also like to use weird and abject materials along with paint, such as dirt and glitter. The impermanence of these materials recommends them to me. What I love most about art is the possessing of it, just the heaps of paintings hung salon style on the walls. I need that.”

Joseph Meloy – Balancing Act

Browse works from this show: here


THE ALL ROADS PROJECT EXHIBIT #6
New Work by Joseph Meloy Rolls into Chelsea, NYC, Thursday, February 28, 2013.


Balancing Act, Joseph Meloy @ The All Roads Project by NOWhere Limited, Thursday February 28, 2013, 6-8:30pm.

February 26, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – This Thursday evening, February 28th, “Balancing Act,” a solo exhibit by Joseph Meloy marks the sixth show at NOWhere Limited’s “All Roads Project.”

For one night only from 6 – 8:30pm, five of Meloy’s new mixed media works will be on view at All Roads’ twenty square foot display. Links to buy and browse these works are now: here

About the Artist
Joseph Meloy (b. 1982, New York City) coined the term Vandal Expressionism to tag his personal post-graffiti spin on abstract art. Drawing heavily from abstract expressionism, art brut, surrealism and pop art, Joseph incorporates some of the more primal elements of graffiti and the iconography of damage and intrusion from street art and turns the calligraphic scribbles of the street into a medium for artistic divination. Unencumbered by distinctions between the abstract and the figurative, Joseph’s work delves into the impulses of the subconscious, pouring them out onto canvas, paper and wall in an otherworldly yet distinctly urban visual language.

For more about Joseph Meloy, please see his web site: VandalExpressionism.com

January 25, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – Last night in the Chelsea art district of NYC, Junkmail², a unique one night exhibit by artist Elisha Sarti was the second show featured at NOWhere Limited’s latest project: All Roads. Links to works from this show are now: here

Elisha Sarti is a painter who works with acrylics, collage, found objects and colored pencil on a variety of substrates. Her imagery references advertisements, product packaging and pictures collected from the Internet. Her work’s textures often mimic nature’s deteriorating effects on machine-made items. For the ongoing series Junkmail², Sarti paints visual odes to disposable mass media like discarded menus, tabloid magazines and dish detergent labels on handmade paper discs she fabricates from reconstituted junkmail. In addition to working as a visual artist, Sarti is a co-director of NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art.

Don Porcella: Two Heads Are Better Than One

Browse works from this show: here


THE ALL ROADS PROJECT EXHIBIT #1
The Debut of Chelsea, NYC’s Smallest Art Space.


Two Heads Are Better Than One, Don Porcella @ The All Roads Project by NOWhere Limited.

January 18, 2013, New York, NY – NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art – Last night in the Chelsea art district of NYC, a unique one night exhibit by artist Don Porcella christened NOWhere Limited’s latest project: All Roads.

Porcella’s exhibit, titled Two Heads Are Better Than One featured four pipe cleaner sculptures, woven by hand with a self-created method the artist has developed and honed over time. These playful yet expressive figures evoke feelings of primordial existence, the earliest stage of “becoming.” The artist’s interest in nature and human evolution came from his youth spent exploring the Sierra Nevada wilderness in California and the American West. Now living and working in NYC, Porcella summons his earlier experiences in an animalistic call of the wild. By creating paintings, sculpture, drawings and installations from materials such as handmade wax and woven pipe cleaners, Porcella seeks to transform these low-brow materials and elevate them to a high art context, while simultaneously laughing at the human condition and presenting a unique world that is shamelessly awkward and unabashedly comical.

New Exhibit Space: All Roads Project

NOWhere Limited presents: The All Roads Project
Chelsea, NYC’s Smallest Art Space Made its Debut January 17, 2013 on West 24th Street between 10th and 11th.

For press inquiries, please contact: nowhere [at] nowherelimited.com

Visit the exhibits section to see shows featured as part of All Roads.


NOWhere Limited’s All Roads Project is a new experiment in alternative exhibition space. Conceived with a “waste not want not” mentality, artists Elisha Sarti and Scott Lickstein, co-founders of NOWhere Limited, converted their SUV into Chelsea, NYC’s smallest art space. The unique 20 square foot display area featured a solo show of original pipe cleaner sculptures by Don Porcella as the inaugural exhibit.

“Almost exactly one year ago, we moved to New York City and made a habit of attending the weekly Thursday night openings in the Chelsea art district. This behavior led to a strong desire to include our sensibilities into the mix. Week after week, we’d park in the neighborhood until it dawned on us that we already had a space – albeit very small – in which to showcase the art that we care about most. In the coming weeks we will be holding one night solo exhibits in our bright red Jeep featuring work from artists in New York City and beyond.” – Scott Lickstein & Elisha Sarti

About Us

NOWhere Limited Contemporary Art retails, produces and exhibits editioned multiples and one-of-a-kind works by an adventurous new generation of artists. Since 2006, NOWhereLimited.com has specialized in connecting a worldwide audience of collectors and art enthusiasts with work that addresses a wide scope of contemporary styles and ideas. It is based in NYC.

“When it comes to art, we believe nowhere’s limited,” say the founders of the enterprise, artists Scott Lickstein and Elisha Sarti. “There are no steadfast restrictions on style, subject matter or media, although much of art we present has a sense of humor or multiple layers of meaning. Our taste at NOWhere Limited gravitates toward (but of course is not limited to:) pop-culture commentaries, street art- and graffiti-inspired pieces, character-based narratives and sophisticated collage.”

The criteria for selecting the art featured at NOWhere Limited is based on quality of ideas and craftsmanship, as well as a “gut feeling” explained here by Elisha:

“The connection that happens when artwork strikes us as ‘good’ is immediate and almost visceral. Scott and I use our instincts as much as our eyes when evaluating art. It’s hard to describe what makes certain art so compelling, but time has taught us if it appeals to or moves us in some way, it has a similar impact on others. Sharing that experience is exciting and addictive! It’s the reason we created this project.”

HISTORY / ABOUT THE FOUNDERS:

Scott Lickstein and Elisha Sarti are a married couple who are each professional artists. They have been organizing art shows in Colorado and online for more than a decade and have recently relocated to NYC. Their style of curating was once described by a fan as an “in-your-face contemporary art conspiracy.” Though the truth is less sinister, that phrase hints at the couple’s renegade yet collaborative spirit. Since 1997, Elisha and Scott have tended to this project in many forms. Previous iterations included Cydonia Lounge (iws.net/cydonia 1997 – 2002) and Culturegrounds.org (2002 – 2006.) From 2007 – 2009, NOWhere Limited Gallery operated as a brick and mortar space in Nederland, Colorado, just west of Boulder. NOWhereLimited.com, the current incarnation of this labor of love, has made artwork available to collectors on the Internet since 2006 and is organizing a new suite of pop up exhibits in NYC beginning in 2013. (See the exhibits link for details.)

Scott’s most recent body of artwork is a series of acrylic paintings on canvas, based on an obsession with movies. He also works with collage, found objects, video and digital imaging. Scott was the founder and primary writer for the art news source, LookIntoMyOwl until January 2013 when it merged with NOWhere Limited’s Magazine. Learn more about Scott at: ScottLickstein.com

Elisha works with collage, acrylics and colored pencil on a variety of substrates. The imagery in her artwork often references advertisements, product packaging and pictures collected from the Internet. She frequently creates the surfaces for her paintings and mixed media works from recycled junkmail, paperboard or salvaged fabric. Learn more about Elisha at: ElishaSarti.com

ABOUT THE NAME:

“We are often asked if the name is ‘Now Here’ Limited or ‘Nowhere’ Limited. The answer is: BOTH! When thought of as ‘now here,’ the phrase is the definition of contemporary – the kind of art we show is being produced now; it is current. When thought of as ‘nowhere,’ the word refers to the history of our enterprise. While we now have exhibits in the ‘real world’ and have operated a brick and mortar gallery in Colorado, we began as an online entity, existing in the ‘no where’ of cyberspace. The word ‘limited’ refers to our emphasis on collectible limited edition pieces. In combination, the phrase ‘nowhere limited’ describes our open attitude toward art-making… When it comes to art, we believe nowhere’s limited.” – Elisha and Scott

PRESS & MEDIA:

NOWhere Limited is happy to furnish the press with print- or web- ready pictures, photo opportunities, private viewing appointments and other materials. Elisha, Scott and many of the artists seen via NOWhere Limited are available for interviews and other media inquiries. For further information, please email: pr [at] nowherelimited.com


Annie Varnot – W/hole

I wanted to encourage you again to visit Wave Hill in the Bronx. Walk the glorious grounds and peruse the gardens and conservatory. While you are there be sure to enter the Glyndor House and head for the Sunroom Project Space to examine “W/hole,” a mixed media installation by Annie Varnot.

The piece is comprised of hollowed poultry eggs set into white gypsum cement. Each egg was deemed not up to retail standards with one sort of irregularity or another. Two video monitors and one small projection chronicle the process of creating the sculptures. The highly personal work is an artistic response to the Varnot’s recent battle with cancer.

Tomás Saraceno – Cloud City

“Cloud City,” the mammoth, site specific installation by Tomás Saraceno is now in place and open to the public on the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The piece will be enjoyed by local and tourist alike for the next seven months.
Tomás Saraceno - Cloud City - 2012

A visit to the Met can result in a sensation that approaches the symptoms of Stendhal syndrome. It’s an easy task to overcome oneself in the charge of such a tremendous spectrum of beauty. The diverse brilliance of cultural directions and theoretical time travel that occurs may be more properly suited to advanced civilizations of the future. The best way to combat the awesome undertow is to take it slow and return often.

Tomás Saraceno - Cloud City - 2012

The first stop on your next Metropolitan outing should be to the roof to experience the marvel that is “Cloud City.” Sixteen interlocking modules make up this piece that is open to guests on a time-based ticket system that is free with admission.

Tomás Saraceno - Cloud City - 2012

Be sure to check the guidelines for entry into the structure as there are some footwear requirements and important recommendations. For instance, women are encouraged to wear pants or shorts as there are more angles than any one person can possibly account for.

Tomás Saraceno - Cloud City - 2012

The following photographs from our encounter with “Cloud City” have not been retouched or manipulated. It is an accurate depiction of the odd perspectives that are achieved through the visual labyrinth. It is a delightfully disorienting experience that opens up into some of the grandest views imaginable of Central Park and the New York skyline. “Ride,” is thought to be a word to avoid when describing fine art but in this case with timed entry and the funhouse atmosphere it is an appropriate term. Approach the piece with that attitude and the joy of the experience will not be lost.

Don Porcella – Studio Visit

A few moths back we stopped in on Don Porcella during his residency at the Museum of Arts and Design on Columbus Circle in NYC. The work we saw and the man we met left a very strong positive impression. Naturally, we were eager to set up this studio visit to share more of Don’s art and offer a glimpse into his process.

There are plenty of opportunities to see Porcella’s work around the city over the next year. He is currently slated to be included in group shows at both the Industries for the Blind and the Children’s Museum of Art this September and a three person exhibit at the ISE Cultural Foundation in March of 2013.

It has also just been announced that Porcella has been selected as a winner of the highly sought after West Collects Prize for 2012. His installation, “There They Remain in the Drain of the Mainframe Food Chain,” will be exhibited this Fall at the West space in Oaks, Pennsylvania.

A book about his artwork is forthcoming as well as an ebook of artist interviews that he has conducted. Don is also releasing a limited edition screen print through our gallery, NOWhere Limited this Summer.

Thursday Night Chelsea, NYC – From The Hip

We spend most Thursday evenings in New York City’s Chelsea district moving through the crowds at the art openings. I never bring the camera because it is a horrible time to photograph artwork. Last night was a change and I lugged the trusty digital single-lens reflex. The visual evidence collected may serve to remind those that haven’t been in a while, encourage those that have been thinking about going and educate those that would never go. Sixteen openings to hit in two hours means we were moving pretty quick and it was rare that I held still to take the photographs.

David Lynch – NYC

David Lynch last had a solo show of his artwork in New York City at the Leo Castelli Gallery in 1989. He’s back, this time at the Tilton Gallery with a lot of new mixed media pieces, some photographic manipulations, a sculpture and a short video loop.

David Lynch - Boy Lights Fire - 2012
David Lynch, Boy Lights Fire, 2012.

The large mixed media works still ring in the same tone as his previous show in California from 2009. They begin as simple stories that unfold through brilliant consideration of materials and quality craftsmanship. I was nowhere near the Pacific Coast for his last show but viewed the works as you are now, online. Examining the pieces directly in New York exponentially increased the respect that I already had for his fine art. David Lynch is not a film guy pretending to be an artist. There may be room in this world for that sort of thing but that is not what is going on here.

David Lynch - Distorted Nude 20 - 2012
David Lynch, Distorted Nude 20, 2012.

There are few descriptors used to convey the attitude of his art in its many forms. Darkness, anger and pain are all simplifications that do not offer any real understanding. We meet David Lynch on the surface but the man and boy remain behind the curtain, wizarding their own Oz.

David Lynch - I See My Love - 2012
David Lynch, I See My Love, 2012.

The secret to his success as an artist lies in a fantastic misunderstanding that occurs between his intent and the perception of the viewer. The screen that connects us shimmers with context. Behind the black paint and bold distortions there is light. If you trust that it is there you see it with every blink.

Wave Hill – Winter Workspace – 2012

The third year of the Winter Workspace residency at Wave Hill is drawing to a close for 2012. The highly successful program is overseen by Director of Arts & Senior Curator Jennifer McGregor, Assistant Curator Gabriel de Guzman and Curatorial Fellow John Minieri.

Annually, the Glyndor Gallery is converted into five studio spaces for ten artists to utilize over two six week sessions. The artists are encouraged to seek inspiration from the public gardens and the many wonderful spaces that Wave Hill has to offer. Meaningful interactions with visitors occur through a series of artist led workshops that provide access to a variety of technical and conceptual concerns.

The studios will be open to Wave Hill visitors on Sunday, March 25th. The event is free with admission so stop in and see works in progress by Gabriela Albergaria, Matthew Burcaw, Matthew Jensen as well as Van Lier Visual Artist Fellows Nova Jiang and Cameron Rowland.

We have looked in on the studios twice during this second session and were very impressed by the focus of the artists and the wide variety of visual pursuits that are occurring. Please scroll down to see some of the progress made by each artist.

Wave Hill

Minutes from Manhattan, in the Northwest corner of the Bronx, lies a place that investigates connections between nature and art. Wave Hill is a twenty-eight acre public garden and cultural center that provides serene escape from the activities of city life.

Wave Hill - 2012
Robert Irwin, Wave Hill Wood, one of eight granite markers placed at Wave Hill, 1987.

In 1960, Wave Hill was gifted to the City of New York by the Perkins-Freeman family. Before that, the estate served as private residences dating back to 1843. The grounds have had several notable guests during that time period including a young Teddy Roosevelt, Mark Twain and Arturo Toscanini.

Wave Hill - 2012

The indoor and outdoor gardens delight in the bountiful variety of plant species and fascinating environments. The conservatory is loaded with vibrant plants from all over the world originating in environments ranging from the tropical rainforest through the arid dessert.

The outdoor gardens are beautiful in all seasons but Spring is approaching and abundant signs of change run through the Wild Garden and Woodland trails. You needn’t be an expert in plant life to enjoy the natural wonders. Should you choose to learn more, the talented staff of horticulturalists and volunteers will not shy from offering a wealth of knowledge.

Don Porcella – Museum Of Arts And Design – Residency

Since 2008, the Museum of Arts and Design has been granting residencies for artists to occupy their sixth floor open studios. It’s a fantastic opportunity for visitors to interact with the artists and gain valuable insights into materials and practice. Each Tuesday through the end of March, Don Porcella will be weaving his magic in the fantastic space on Columbus Circle overlooking Central Park. Thanks to Don for letting us look in on this week’s session.

A steady wave of guests were obviously charmed by the presence of the artist and his willingness to engage in meaningful discourse. Porcella encouraged his new friends to handle some small encaustic paintings while he explained the origins of his material choices and contextual concerns with an ease derived from authenticity. A wide range of his wonderful pipe cleaner sculptures were on hand. There is a real brilliance to these works that transcend the difficult boundary that traditionally exists between fine art and craft. We could tell you a lot about Don, now, but you should visit him and get the story straight.

When Titles Fail – NOWhere Limited – Exhibition Photos

The latest show at NOWhere Limited is a fun and eclectic “salon-style” exhibit of paintings and mixed media pieces by some of Colorado’s most exciting artists.

“When Titles Fail” brings together work from Heather Taylor, Chris Huang, Max Kauffman, Craig Koch, Scott Lickstein, Ian Millard, Angela Oaks, Maggie Ross, Elisha Sarti and Greg Willson.

Most of the artists involved in this exhibition have several pieces on display. In an effort to maximize the dynamic of the show we chose to dispense the work throughout the gallery instead of segregating by artist.

The response to this arrangement has been very strong. We have found that visitors quickly discern differences in style by finding something they react to and visually scanning the room for more from that artist.

The pieces from “When Titles Fail” will be available on line at this link tomorrow, July 15th 2009 at 2pm Mountain.

Thawed Out: Visions Of The Future – Nowhere Limited – Exhibition Photos

Last weekend we opened the group show “Thawed Out: Visions of the Future” at NOWhere Limited. We’ll be in the gallery this weekend so stop by and let us know what is on your mind.

Thawed Out - Nowhere Limited - Exhibition Photo - 2009

The exhibit is in celebration of an annual local oddity known as “Frozen Dead Guy Days”. It seems that a deported Nederland resident made an attempt to cryogenically freeze the body of a deceased relative. Grandpa, as he is affectionately known by the sleepy mountain town, remains on dry ice in a Tuff Shed in the hills. Each year the masses flock here to enjoy festivities such as a hearse parade, polar plunge and coffin races.

Thawed Out - Nowhere Limited - Exhibition Photo - 2009

Thirteen diversely talented artists round out this themed show. We requested that the artists contemplate what the world might be like when Grandpa was “Thawed Out”. Various visions of the future are represented ranging from the absurd to the sublime.

March 6-8 Nederland, Colorado is the place to be. Click here for a video of the insanity from last year.

NOWhere Limited is in the heart of the party so we will be offering sober reports from the (drunken) front lines. Friday evening the drumming of Greg Willson will fill the gallery. On Saturday at 4:30pm the Dead Bubbles will once again be turning it up to eleven.

It has been a lot of fun setting up the gallery. Something that we had been working toward for a long time. We really weren’t sure what to expect when we took NOWhere from bytes to atoms. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. There is a real scene developing here in Colorado. Yes, Colorado. An astonishing amount of people that enter our gallery demonstrate a strong knowledge of contemporary art coupled with a quest for progress. Thanks are due to all. Collectors online and in person. The musicians that have graced our stage. To all of the artists that have and will show. Thank you.
