About the Artist:
Mr. Lubell is a widely collected printmaker who resides with his wife Selena on Rutland Road in our Lefferts Manor community. He specializes in the etching processes of aquatint and chine colee ( a rice paper collage). Over the past fifteen years he has worked at several printmaking studios in the New York City region, working with leading figures including, Bob Blackburn, Claudio Vaurez, Jan Carlisle, Michael Pelliteri, Laurie Ourlicht, and Vijay Kumar, amongst others.
The theme of this show at Tugboat focuses on scenes drawn from our neighborhood and the pageant of life around Prospect Park. Fourteen framed etchings will be displayed.
Our neighbors in Brooklyn walk, thrive, play, chat, and flirt among the ubiquitous brownstones and parkland of this unique urban village. Although we often can’t see their faces of his subjects, their gestures and movement reveal their universal joy and struggle
In addition to his etchings of the city and parks, Mr. Lubell is also well regarded for his portrayal of the sea, sailing and beaches, in a wide collection of editions drawn from the coasts of our Brooklyn shoreline.
Also, his etchings of Caribbean life are drawn from the Jamaican hillside country of his wife’s native land. The editions remind the viewer of a nostalgic time when life in the islands was simpler and working the fields was more honored.
PLG Arts presents its first show at Gratitude Cafe (499 Rogers Ave., @ Midwood Street.
The opening reception for a show of Karl McIntosh’s beautiful mask sculptures will be tomorrow, April 22nd, from 6:00–8:00 PM; please join us as we inaugurate our shows at this venue.
Shows continue at Tugboat Tea Company on Flatbush Avenue–look for a new show of prints by Rich Lubell, starting next week.
About the artist:
Karl A. McIntosh’s work have been exhibited at numerous venues across the country including Dorsey’s Art Gallery, The Skylight Gallery, MoCada (The Museum of Contemporary Diasporian Art), 843 Gallery, The National Black Fine Art Show, Color: The Chicago Black Fine Art Exposition, The Fulton Art Fair, The George Washington Carver Gallery, The Red Piano Too (St. Helena SC), McIntosh is also proud to add the Brooklyn Museum to his already impressive list. He was mentioned in the April 16th, 2004 edition of the New York Times in an article in connection with “Open House” the Brooklyn Museum exhibition. Some call McIntosh a folk artist, others call him primitive, some say he’s an “outside” the mainstream artist, but what ever the title, most would probably agree that an apt description of McIntosh is that he is simply a genius.

I have been living, loving and photographing PLG for over 11 years and I still get the same buzz as I did in 2003 when I go out on my night shoots around the neighborhood. The heart of my texhnique is trying to see PLG for the first time every day I shoot here.
Inhabitants of PLG are so fortunate to live in such a vibrant and fun-loving environment. If a photograph is a production of light, then on face value I can capture an image in PLG, on any given day as beautiful as anywhere on earth.
All 12″ X 12″ prints are limited edition series with a maximum of 25 and are $240
All 36″ 224″ prints are limited editions series with a maximum of 50 and are $600

We are delighted to announce Repre Art Collective’s first international show, which will take place from the November 11 – December 8 2014 at the Tugboat Tea Company in Brooklyn, New York.
Repre is an art collective of 10 artists who share the common theme of representation. Their work ranges from the body to the landscape and each artist is concerned with not only depicting the real, but also exploring and pushing the boundaries of realism within their practice.
The Repre LDN – – -> NYC show will display new works from each artist. With the challenge of transporting work from London to New York, there is predominant theme of light work, including paintings on paper, photography and prints. This exhibition focuses on the shifts in the artist’s practices as each artist seeks to find refreshing ways to break down, reconstruct and represent the concept of the real. Through the use of fragmentation, found images, transformation and abstraction the artists begin a dialogue around the ideas of what representation means today.
Repre Art Collective has seen topics covered such as perception, temporality, celebrity, atmosphere, the body and the augmentation of images. The New York exhibition will provide an insight into these lines of enquiry.
Repre was founded in 2011 by Rebecca Molloy and in this time the artists have hosted a variety of events. This has included their debut exhibition at The Crypt Gallery, Trafalgar Square (2012), an experimental warehouse exhibition in Silwex Studios, Shoreditch (2013) as well as their most recent residency at the DegreeArt Gallery (2013). The artists are driven by the activity of peer support and have also put on critiques, panel discussions, life drawing classes, pecha kucha events and collaborations.
The Repre LDN – – -> NYC is curated by Noel Hefele and Bob Marvin

“Photography is a tool for me to find and capture an emotion in the “external world.” It is my emotion, clearly embedded in the landscape outside my skin—I leave part of me there when I take a photo as I take some of the scene with me.
I want to live aware of the world like this. I want to feel the constant wind for days, then no wind all day; a full moon so bright I squint my eyes—I strive to be open to the world in such a way that it can flow through me.
These moments exist anywhere during my walk within Prospect Park, but each moment is only that: a moment. Like dreams, these scenes are entirely unique and will never repeat. Every time when I witness those moments I dream, re-enchanting the ordinary.
I hope the viewer can visit these moments and in-between places in their imaginations, while bringing their own thoughts and experiences to this shared process of sense perception.”

David continues his work in Figurative Oil painting. The 20teens are about him painting nudes on surreal, subjective background settings that have originated in a previous purpose. An idea that is driven by recycling, he has been painting on random boards picked out of industrial trash. Boards chosen for an aesthetic just one step away from Art and then adding the Figure. Oil Standards will also feature the premiere showing of the entire 4X4X4X4 Oil on Cardboard panel matrix. This is an assembly of Archetype represented 4 at a time on 16 squares consisting of 64 images. His is also exhibiting two pieces from his transurreal Green Eyes series, green glasses provided. One is a magical Minus Green photo-negative and one is an Exquiste Corpse.
My paintings are merely a prepared surface that I have polished with colored Oils until a beautiful image appears. I would like to thanks PLG Arts and Tugboat Tea Co for this opportunity to show my work on Flatbush Avenue.
