Darling House, 496 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY
We are located at the corner of Broadway and Union - Lorimer JMZ, Broadway G, or a ten minute walk from the Lorimer L. Look for the glass door, ring top buzzer.
Please join us for an evening with new paintings and drawings by Brooklyn-based artist Maria Kondratiev. In addition to the works created in her studio, Maria is bringing a can of paint and a brush to prepare a kind of anti-trompe l'oeil throughout our living space. Her forms transcribed from dreams - drawn resolutely yet impulsively, whimsical and depressed - hint at the underbelly of yearning. At the same time they address the... necessary human thing that is desire, and the humorous thing that is emerging self-awareness.
Music will be provided by the wonderful Katie Mullins. (http://katiemullinsmusic.com/)
Coinciding with the Brooklyn Book Festival we will also be hosting a small zine library featuring chapbooks by James Yeh, illustrated by Andrew Bulger, interview and other booklets by Temporary Services, prints by Rand Renfrow, and comics by Mark Hensel. Zines will be available for purchase.
