Bushwick Open Studios looks to be another huge year for arts in Bushwick! At press time there were 581 online registered events (down only slightly from last year’s 598 registered users) filling a weekend with art and performance. We worked over the very user friendly Arts in Bushwick website and compiled Norte Maar’s 2014 list of not to miss events, exhibitions, and studios… or at least those that we’ll not miss!!!! Similar to last year, all events/exhibitions/studios are divided into six zones stretching the geographic lines which make up the creative neighborhood of Bushwick.
Due to the overwhelming public response to this exhibition, Norte Maar in collaboration with 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery, is pleased to announce the extension of this historic show, To be a Lady: forty-five women in the arts, through March 22, 2013.

NEW YORK CITY, September 2012–Norte Maar and the 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery announce the exhibition To be a Lady: Forty-Five Women in the Arts, on view at the 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery from September 24, 2012 through January 18, 2013. A reception, open to the public, will be held on Monday, September 24 from 6-8pm.
Curator Jason Andrew brings together forty-five artists born over the last century who happen to be women. Striking examples by historic protagonists, Alma Thomas, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, Lenore Tawney, Louise Bourgeois and Grace Hartigan set the stage for an exhibition designed to challenge and reshape the meaning of the word lady.

“Don’t sleep in on these exhibits!” warns Courier Life‘s Aaron Short in his column for Brooklyn Daily. Short previewed Norte Maar’s first show of the year, Gʉilty / (NOT) Guilty, whose opening coincided with our annual New Years champagne brunch celebration.
The show, curated by Sarah Schmerler, of 45 Projects, features works by Ellen Letcher, Francesco Masci, Alfred Steiner, and Pablo Tauler. Friends of Norte Maar joined us to take in the broad spectrum of media presented in Schmerler’s show, as well as mimosas and an extensive brunch spread. “Guilty / (NOT) Guilty is an exceptionally strong art show featuring some of the neighborhood’s favorite artist,” writes Bushwick Daily‘s Katarina Hybenova in her piece covering the successful opening celebration. Hybenova included images of the work and artists behind it, more of which can be found here.
