The Lorax Poems @ Good Work Gallery, Oct 3

1 October 2015

Zach Smith is curating a new group exhibition titled The Lorax Poems at Brooklyn’s Good Work Gallery, opening October 3.

The show negotiates the “space between science and poetry”, highlighting artists whose works are inspired by a steady diet of both populist and academic contemporary media to create what they hope is “a paean to the natural world”.

Taking its name from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, a forest entity known for saying what nobody much wants to hear and eventually banishing himself just as his pessimistic prophecies come to fruition, the group exhibition features the works of eight artists, including Ella GörnerMichael AssiffCarson Fisk-Vittori and Cecilia Salama.

First Responders @ Good Work Gallery, Apr 5 – 20

2 April 2014

From April 5 – 20, Brooklyn’s Good Work Gallery will showcase First Responders, a group exhibition featuring the works of a dynamic selection of contemporary artists and organized by curator Zach Smith.

Initially, First Responders was to be an exhibition of works on paper. Since that conceptual seed, it has branched into a diverse exhibition showcasing paintings, sculptures, and photographic prints, mapping the process by which the universal fundamental state – the sketch, the gesture – progresses and expands the traditional roles of drawing. 

Included in the line up the works of painters like Ariel DillBen Horns, and Katie Loselle, as well as those of multi-media artists like Orion MartinDeanna HavasSam McKinniss and Kyle Petreycik.

To find out more about the exhibition and to read the mission statement for organizer and curator, Zach Smith, visit its official Facebook page or visit the Good Work Gallery website. And for specific details about exhibition time and location, visit the aqnb event listing.
