Picture Farm Gallery is proud to host The Universal Solvent Collective this Saturday night, presenting “NEW ARRIVALS”, a video program of short pieces made by a group of amateur American filmmakers. The film selections have characteristics similar to diary entries, all of them capturing short moments in time.

The line up:
“wistful thinking” // Julia Kipnis
“A Hydrant High” // Charlie Rosario
“March to June” // Robert Orlowski
“vegas” // Philip Steiger
“EXIT 9” // Joseph Barglowski
This event will mark the premiere of “EXIT 9”, the only fiction piece in the program. The film attempts to appropriate this diary-method of filmmaking in a narrative form by following the behaviors of a girl whose repeating actions lead her to similar outcomes. “EXIT 9” was made by Joseph Barglowski and shot on 16mm by Robert Orlowski, featuring Kati Rehbeck in her acting debut.

“NEW ARRIVALS” will be screening on the night of Saturday, June 18 at 7:30PM at Picture Farm Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Food and drinks will be provided.



The children of Picture Farm more often than not spend some of their most formative years at Mi Escuelita, a local preschool. And every year we are proud to present their year end children’s art show. Last year Mi Escuelita concentrated the show around Nepal, raising $14k for Helter Shelter while teaching the children about art, culture and empathy. This year the focus is on Africa and responsible tourism.

All local art lovers are invited to stop in and enjoy the party and check out the great work Mi Escuelita does with the children entrusted to it. And especially, if you’re looking for a preschool for your child, this is a great opportunity.

From Tia Yvonne:

“¡Buenos días!
Mi Escuelita cares about our endangered species community conservation and responsible tourism.
This year we focused on the continent of Africa. We have taken the little ones on a conscious journey through the African continent, exploring it’s animals.
Please help us by donating to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy which is an award-winning catalyst and model for community conservation, a UNESCO world heritage site.
