This Saturday, a group of artists is throwing a pop-up studio sale at 56 Bogart Street. All of the work will be priced for under $100, making this a rare opportunity to snatch some affordable pieces from emerging artists.

Dubbed Beg The Raven, the event will feature artist books, photography, paintings, sculpture and works on paper from Alessandro Keegan, Bob Szantyr, Elisa Soliven, Jaqueline Cedar, Jennifer Sullivan, JJ Manford, Jon Lutz, Elizabeth Insogna, Max Razdow, and Vanessa Albury.

The pop-up will only be open on Saturday, from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., so we recommend getting there early before all the good stuff is snatched up.

Here’s a little preview of what’s available.

Tuesday night, we’re throwing a revolutionary dance party at Brooklyn’s Lovegun to celebrate our Fall Fundraiser. The world is a pretty dystopian place—and we need you to join the resistance. We’ll be collecting donations at the door; offering fabulous raffle prizes; and enjoying performances, DJ sets, and more post-apocalypstick than you can possibly scrub off your collar from Trey La Trash, Molly Rhinestones, Orlando Estrada and Ellen Degenerate.

But enough about us—if you survive tomorrow night’s apocalypse, you’re in for a week of solo shows opening, lectures from the likes of Ta-Nehisi Coates, open studios at the fantastic Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, and several nights to see the weirdest beauty pageant imaginable from Psychic Readings Company. The week ends with an epic four exhibitions closing in Bushwick just after Sunday brunch time. 

See? Art F City is always helping you navigate the treacherous wastelands of 2015. Won’t you help us survive?

SPRING/BREAK Art Show Brings a Focus on the Personal

Even by itself, the Armory Show is overwhelming. With the Armory Show’s booths extending to the vanishing point in both directions of Pier 94, it can leave an unsettling impression of endlessness, where everything starts to look the same. And amidst the vastness of this week’s equally-momentous art events (a three-part Whitney Biennial, and the Armory’s satellites), this weekend could use a break of something more human in scale.

Recommended Bushwick Open Studio: Max Razdow

Gatherings of expressionistic figures communing in mythical settings define Max Razdow’s paintings and drawings. While some of his pen and ink drawings verge on storybook as in the “Future Myths” series, others are weirder, and more open to interpretation. “Man Speaking (to computer),” is one such a example, as we have no idea how to interprete a barrel-chested figure shooting blue mist out of his mouth into a black triangle. In addition to having exhibited multiple times in Belgium and Brooklyn, Max Razdow shows with Freight + Volume.
