Single Fare 3

Carroll Gardens

Carroll Gardens

This week, Single Fare 3 opens at RH Gallery in Tribeca and if you're in town it's an event not to be missed. The brain child of Michael Kagan and Jean-Pierre Roy, Single Fare 3 features works of art made with or on credit card-sized plastic Mew York City Metrocards. The show is an open call exhibition and draws the attention of all manner of visual creatives, from the novice to the established. Last year's exhibition attracted over 1000 artists working in everything from painting and drawing to sculpture and video. Each piece is sold for $100 ($200 for the first hour of the opening reception) regardless of the artists' stature. That means with a trained eye it can be a great way to collect work from some of the industry's top names!

The opening reception is this Wednesday, February 13th, from 6-9pm, at RH Gallery. It's open to the public but considering the appeal of the show it's advisable to arrive early. If you miss the opening the show will be on view through February 22nd.

I've contributed two pieces to the show this year, both seen here. Both are watercolor on paper mounted on Metrocard and represent two distinct personal memories tied to two distinct Brooklyn neighborhoods - Carroll Gardens (above) and Fort Greene (below). Each measure 3 3/8" x 2 1/8".
