OZANEAUX ArtSpace is a philanthropic, artist-run exhibition/project space created by Artist Nikki Schiro and her partner, Frederic Ozaneaux, in 2009. Interested in empowering Artists and Curators of underrepresented demographics and facilitating International/Cultural Exchange, the couple works with Artists and Curators from their personal and professional community. The gallery sits in the heart of New York City’s Main Gallery District, Chelsea.
On Thursday, November 21, 2013, OZANEAUX ArtSpace will host an extraordinary evening not to be missed. Please Join us from 6-9pm, to celebrate the opening reception of In A World Often Too Real, artworks by French artist Jean Lebreton, and, being the third Thursday of November, we will welcome in 2013's harvest of Beaujolais Nouveau!
For 20 years French photographer Jean Lebreton has been publicly known as a media news photographer. Privately, however, he has been investigating and experiencing photography outside its traditional form and function. Breaking from the "news" or documentary image into an aesthetic, emotional plain Jean has been experimenting with Vinyl (or Duratrans) transparency, finally arriving at an Encaustic, Mixed Media Photography. In A World Often Too Real is an exhibition featuring a selection of Lebreton's Encaustic and Vinyl artworks made in New York over the span of 5 years.
Beaujolais Nouveau is a famously young wine of purplish color and fruity flavor. The wine has an ultra-fast production time (bottled 6-8 weeks after harvest) and is meant to be consumed immediately, as unlike other wines, it does not improve with age.
By tradition, Beaujolais Nouveau is released on the third Thursday of November, perfect synchronization with the opening reception of Lebreton's work. Please join us in celebrating the Art and the Harvest. Please forward and share with friends!
Please join us for the opening reception, November 21, 2013 6-9 PM.
The exhibition runs from November 21-December 9, 2013.
