It’s been a long time coming, but thanks to the support of friends and family, this first of many steps to come has finally arrived. Here is the press release from The Bronx Art Space below.
With remarkably clever artistry Gallego’ and Trenier convert the iconic ‘Sneaker”, Gallegos, by sewing and resembling witty, metaphoric, politically critical, some times sacrosanct sculptures. Trenier designs wearable cool with leather dyes and meticulous precision. Trenier, who is also exhibiting paintings of compelling urban & sneaker images, was inspired to paint on sneakers early on by his buddy Jason Shaw and went on to develop his impressive one-of-a kind sneaker “business.” The young photographer Osjua Newton’s series of feet photographs is a specially appropriate addition to the content of this very Bronx exhibit.
Other major openings for the show are:
• Wednesday, March 6 @ 5:30-8:00PM for Bronx Trolley night (free trolley bus that tours most of the open galleries in the South Bronx). The trolley can be reach at 149st and Grand Concourse in from of Hostos Community College.
• And Thursday, March 7 @ 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM for Armory Arts Week-Bronx Day.
I will likely be there attending all three days, so please stop by for a day of art and a chance to talk to me and the other artists; Sean-Paul Gallegos, Andre Trenier and Jason Shaw.
