Foxes, coyotes and raccoons survive the destruction of their habitats by exploring suburbs and cityscapes and it’s no news that New York’s beleaguered bohemians are also being desperately inventive. Detroit and Los Angeles are favored destination cities but, more locally, there has been a fresh bohemian influx into such upstate townships as Woodstock, so I was perhaps more startled than I should have been while driving through Livingston Manor, a sedate hamlet up in the Catskills, to lay eyes on a guy who looked—black attire, full arm tattoo, piercings—as if he had walked straight off Avenue C.

As remarked above, Carson has great natural skills and has had an active art-making and performing career ever since. The action, incidentally, was also videotaped and the video was on permanent loop at ‘The Last Party’, a show I curated back in the summer at WhiteBox, an artspace in Manhattan.
Another artist whose overdue time is coming is another New Yorker, M Henry Jones. In his fifties, Jones is no wilful provocateur, merely an artist who has stubbornly gone his own way, managing somehow or other to remain oblivious to the mores of the art world as a game system. He arrived in New York from Buffalo in 1975 with a scholarship to the School of Visual Arts and a compulsive fascination with animation.
On Saturday, May 23, 2015, 180 people from all over the world came to GARNER Arts Center to pose for a Spencer Tunick installation. American artist/photographer, Spencer Tunick, joined GARNER Arts Center in October 2013 for a two-year artist in residence program. Best known for organizing large-scale nude shoots, Tunick’s acclaimed body of work dates back to 1992. Nearly 100 temporary site-specific installations in the United States and abroad have been done since then.

This project will change the way participants and observers alike will interact and experience art, culture and education in the 21st Century.Certain storms alter our physical landscape. GARNER Arts Center, and the GARNER Historic District in which we are located, experienced a devastating Hurricane which caused our Main Gallery to collapse, suspending daily operations and programming.
