Cole Barash : Talk Story Book Launch

10568787_10202892046877281_2065815067384891218_n

Like most of us, Cole Barash grew up on a steady diet of action packed Hawaiian surf imagery. Unlike most of us, he took the chance to explore that scene deeper when given the opportunity. Blending a documentarian’s journalistic impulse with an artist’s desire to approach things from nontraditional angles, Cole spent a season on the North Shore in the company of a series of mythical characters like the young surfing phenom and North Shore product John John Florence.  

On Thursday night Picture Farm Gallery is excited to present the book launch for Talk Story, a body of work that pulls the viewers deeper “behind all the action” in a refreshingly thoughtful way. 

Thursday, July 24 2014 from 6 to 10 PM

One Night Only Paola Citterio Pop Up Installation May 30

PF Gallery will have a one night only viewing of Paola Citterio’s project “Viral Colonization.” We are duly honored that she decided PF Gallery would be a perfect place to mount this fleeting but significant event, titled SOLOFIFTY, and it is truly the sort of experience you’d hope to stumble upon on a Friday night in Brooklyn.

More here.

It Doesn’t Not Work RECAP Extravaganza

It Doesn’t Not Work was a massive conceptual success. In reality, it was also successful. A massive amount of thought, conversation, education and pure inspiration was palpable. Saturday night we opened the proceedings with an impromptu “shaper’s barbeque” out front and a long night of talk and inspection inside.

A constant flow of interested surfers from all over the tri-state area augmented by a load of passersby created an environment of surprise and stoke. 3D printed fins, boards glassed with indestructible military grade fiberglass, hydroplaning paipos, crazy scooped out noses, channel bottoms, extreme flexy swallow tails, gorgeously crafted handplanes and good times.  Ty Breuer of SMASH and Surphy Murphy of Imaginary Surf Co kept the vibe easy and crafted an on-the-spot Q&A catalogue for the show.

Check out the slide shows for a recap if you were there, and a little depression if you weren’t.

An Invitation to Cheer

1941418_10202387360180290_8051460388544458649_o

It wasn’t so long ago that the people of Williamsburg had a ready-made, family friendly space for World Cup viewing, but with the demise of Zebulon (long may she live) the hole in our heart has only grown wider at the thought of not being able to coral the neighborhood love in one place.

And at Picture Farm we have a  few abiding passions, the beautiful game (and enjoying that with our kids) chief among them. And while we may all root for different teams during the world Cup (we’re an exotic bunch, see) we all agree that we’d like to root for them together. With our kids. And our friends. And their kids. And their friends.

Chris Bren and Bill Swartz are dreaming up a community-neighborhood-family friendly viewing situation in the PF Gallery space. Every game of the World Cup will just happen to be on in the gallery. We cordially invite you to join us for a celebration of le foot.

More info coming soon, so stay tuned.

A Few Minutes With Zak Bush

Zak Bush : May Show At PF Gallery

ZakBush_Revisions_1

We first met Zak Bush when he showed up at our doorstep on the immediate heels of Hurricane Sandy with Mikey DeTemple, Lisa Myers & Ty Breuer to start our Sandy recovery efforts. And ever since one of his gorgeous, environmental surf photographs popped up on our walls for Within Sight, we’ve been trying to lock down a time for him to do a solo show. That time is May 2014.

 

Zak’s photographic journey starts in the cold, clear north of Nova Scotia and the reaches of coastal Canada, and has continued around the world in warmer climes, coming to settle, for the moment, in New York. His process and inspirations have shifted over that time, but his natural talent has persevered.  As photographic Swiss Army Knife for Saturdays, Zak has been continually bombarded with new input and fresh visions and the resulting show of instigation and progress is an invigorating comment on an artist in full motion.

 

Opening Reception on May 2nd form 6-10pm at the gallery!

“New York City-based photographer Zak Bush is proud to present his first solo exhibition, Revisions. Exploring the contesting aesthetics of rural Canada and urban New York City, Revisions chronicles the drastic environmental change Zak underwent in his journey from life in the corner of North America to its center.
Finding grounding elements in each environment, Revisions compares and contrasts imagery from both landscapes respectively, from the jagged coastlands of Nova Scotia to the grid-like streets of New York City. His collection of work not only zeros in on the features that polarize these two regions, but also highlights the qualities that bind them.
Canadian-born photographer Zak Bush developed his art after an injury kept him out of the water for several months. In desperate need of a preoccupation, Zak borrowed a camera and began framing the setting around him. Now residing in Brooklyn, Zak continues to capture the texture and feel of his surrounding environment, whether in bustling Lower Manhattan or a nearby beachside town.
Zak’s work has been featured in The Surfers Journal, Saturdays Magazine, Bergdorf Goodman’s 58th and 5th, Surfer Magazine, Surfing Magazine, Transworld Surf, Australian Surfing Magazine, Slide Magazine, Foam Symmetry, as well as other surf and lifestyle publications around the world. Zak is currently the in-house photographer at Saturdays NYC.”

PF Gallery Lately : Elsewhere

As your prototypical, abnormal, standard, nonconformist art concern, PF Gallery does not “lay claim” to the artists we collaborate with. We are duly proud when their work goes on to be shown and recognized elsewhere.  This week in PF Gallery Elsewhere : State Of Wonder is having a garden exhibition at the Standard Hotel in Miami and Christopher Anderson’s SON will be showing at the Paris Photo LA show via the Robert Morat Galerie. Feel the PF love on the national scale.
