Broad Strokes, A New Pen and Brush Exhibit

The 122-year-old arts organization debuts new 15-artist group show aimed to incite deeper considerations and reconsiderations of modern art history.

Pen and Brush is pleased to present Broad Strokes, the second group art exhibition in their new state-of-the-art facility located in New York’s Flatiron District. Taking the name from the sometimes pejorative word for a tough woman, “Broad” also refers to the wide range of work and perspectives represented.

Broad Strokes is on view at Pen and Brush, 29 East 22nd Street, New York, NY 10010, from April 1st through June 5th, 2016. There is an opening reception on Friday, April 1st from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. and light refreshments and wine is served. The event is open to the public, but you are encouraged to RSVP by emailing rsvp@penandbrush.org.

A group show totaling 63 works by 15 different artists, Broad Strokes offers an earnest contemplation of modern art's rich history beyond the exclusionary lens of the accepted canon. As a result, Broad Strokes aims to incite and encourage deeper considerations and reconsiderations of the role modern art plays for contemporary women artists.

Among the featured artists is Josephine Barreiro, whose colorful and energetic paintings reflect her upbringing in Newark, New Jersey’s Ironbound neighborhood as the daughter of Spanish immigrants. Barreiro is inspired by her love of graffiti art and the iconic work of Spanish painters from Diego Velazquez to Pablo Picasso. Not only is Barreiro's work in the show, she is live painting during the Broad Strokes opening on April 1st.

All Pen and Brush events are open to the public. Please visit the events page for a full calendar of reading, events, discussions and more.

Blogologues at the PIT

Blogologues is the brainchild of creators Allison Goldberg and Jen Jamula. It is the internet performed, word-for-word, onstage. They find the most fascinating things they can on the deep, dark interwebz and then perform it for y'all. (Not literally. The actual dark web is for trafficking organs and they would like to keep those where they are). They act out community forums, Missed Connections, Yelp reviews, OkCupid profiles, fan fiction, tweets, comment sections and more.

Show starts at 8:00 p.m. Come early for a drink. Bar in the theater. See ya there!

Madison Square and Jane Jacobs' Vision of Diversity

Madison Square is located at the heart of the bustling Flatiron neighborhood, which boasts an ideal mix of commercial and residential buildings, a museum, a courthouse, a hotel and renowned businesses, restaurants and shops. Enriching the area even further are its individual landmarks and two directly adjacent historic districts. While Madison Square is a neighborhood park of just over 6 acres, it contains elements touted by Jane Jacobs found in an ideal park. The park of today together in concert with the surrounding neighborhood provides an excellent example of a successful city center. These characteristics will become quite evident as we make our way around and through the area. This walk is sponsored by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership.
