Closing Reception for Twenty-Three: This Sunday, Nov. 22!
Famous Accountants is pleased to announce a closing reception for their inaugural exhibit “Twenty-Three” on Sunday, November 22, 2009 from 4-7PM. There will be drinks & snacks (and coffee and talking) and we’d love to see you!
Famous Accountants (described by Hyperallergic as “Pocket Utopia’s underground stepchild“) is a shared work/studio and gallery space in Greater Bushwick run by artists Ellen Letcher and Kevin Regan. Their concept for the space is “gallery as sketchbook.” Their inspiration for opening Famous Accountants is Austin Thomas and her concept of the perch. Thomas ran the recently-closed Pocket Utopia: “a relational exhibition, salon and social space” housed in a renovated storefront space on Flushing Avenue.
The inaugural show, “Twenty-Three” features work by both Letcher and Regan. Over the course of 2 months, the two artists visited the studio separately and together, composing a dialogue of works. The show features a combination of previous pieces as well as site-specific collages, found images, words and objects.
