BY STEPHANIE BUHMANN  (stephaniebuhmann.com)  | Though Michael Snow’s oeuvre is multidisciplinary — including painting, sculpture, video, film, sound, photography, holography, drawing, writing and music — his contemplation remains the same.

Buhman on Art, Week of Oct. 9, 2014

BY STEPHANIE BUHMANN  (stephaniebuhmann.com)  |  WES HEMPEL  |  Wes Hempel explores notions of masculinity by setting portraits of present-day men against backdrops that resemble paintings of the historical Neoclassical and High Renaissance era — Nicolas Poussin and Guido Reni frequently come to mind.

Coney Island Museum returns to form

Photo by Bill Scurry BY TRAV S.D.  (travsd.wordpress.com)  |  Among Coney Island’s many attractions — the amusement parks, the beach, the boardwalk, the eateries, and Brooklyn Cyclones baseball — there lives one that is less noisome but just as significant and true to the spirit of the neighborhood.

Needles, knives, past and present lives

Eye-opening views, embedded in the landscape

Eye-opening views, embedded in the landscape

BY NORMAN BORDEN  |  Ah, wilderness. For many New Yorkers and visitors, Central Park is their breath of fresh air: the essence of Mother Nature, autumn leaves, sledding and snowmen, the miracle of spring, summer fun, running and biking — a great, albeit temporary, escape from noise, pollution and crowded sidewalks. Central Park has its […]

The Adventures of an Underemployed Urban Elf

The Adventures of an Underemployed Urban Elf

BY REV. JEN (rev-jen.com)  |  Some of you might have noticed my face (and elf ear) gracing the cover of a recent issue of TimeOut New York, wherein I am the poster girl for weirdness in New York. This was a great honor and a band-aid on my sorely wounded ego. But don’t let my current […]
