This episode we discuss Jeff Songco’s new blog on the Huffington Post and the Buck Art Contest.

Jeff Songco is making more moves to be the United States representative at the 2023 Venice Biennale. He is now blogging about his life and the arts on the Huffington Post. You can see him discuss the Super Bowl commercials, his recent solo show in San Francisco, and the death of Whitney Houston.

As the reigning champ of the 2011 Buck Art Competition, I also issue a challenge to the rest of the artists in the 2012 Buck Art Competition. Do you have what it takes to take on the champ? I am taking no prisoners this year so come out and take on the king.

If you would like to participate in the Buck Art Show, check out the flier and feel free to ask any questions.

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.
