Thunk Tank Afterward

Today we are going to talk about the opening of the now closed Thunk Tank: Corpus Absurdum show at the Dino Eli Gallery and Jeffrey Songco’s upcoming solo show at Steven Wolf Fine Arts in San Francisco.{Click to Play}

Jeff Songco who is a friend of NewMediator and one of the artists in our first group show, is having his first solo show!  The show will be at Steven Wolf Fine Arts in San Francisco, January 7 to February 18. The work is going to deal with issues of sexuality and Jeff’s own sexual identity. The description of the show on the gallery’s sight discusses the imagery of the work. Of course what I love about Jeff’s work is how everything is intimate and even delicate.

In more local news, we had an amazing opening for the Thunk Tank photography show. If you haven’t been following this was the first showing of photography by Bronwyn Carlton and Jay Bachhuber and David LaMorte was their guest curator for the show at the Dino Eli Gallery in Manhattan. They photographers are the hosts of one of my favorite radio shows and podcasts, and I came on board to help them organize and prepare for the show.

All of the proceeds of the work went to pay Dino’s costs, and to WFMU in Jersey City. The show was a big success because we sold a bunch of photographs and had about 200 people at the show. The Dino Eli Gallery is not a huge space, so we had a lot of art lovers and WFMU listeners spilling out onto the sidewalks.

The Art House is a multidisciplinary arts event that features music, performances, and visual art. The show will be at 25 Huntington Street in New Brunswick and will run from 8pm-11pm. I don’t have an exhibitors list, but the show is going to feature 20+ local artists and performers.
