That same night, but a few blocks away at the Villains space, SMASH Fest 1 will be kicking off its second leg of films and events. If you’re set to see any of the films, or are contemplating doing a late drive by to see if they are sold out, stop by Picture Farm for a little extra visual excitement and a drop of drink.

Grant Cornett’s photos shift contexts gracefully between fictional illustration, editorial, and advertising, into the exhibition space of a gallery. I Stay Under Glass is a collection of photographs that span the years 2009 to 2013 and touch on the raw, lawless quality of his sensibility. Teenage cockiness overlap elegance and skepticism. These pictures feel like they live on the crest of incident; vaguely fictive, reactionary and mysteriously purposeful all at once.
Grant Cornett was born in 1975 in Dallas Texas. He now resides in Pine Plains, NY and works out of NYC. He has no formal education beyond high school, which he left in the 11th grade. He has been photographing in New York for 15 years and his work has appeared in The New Yorker, Time Magazine, NY Mag, NY Times, Wired, Esquire, Vanity Fair & Vogue, among others. He keeps his own account of things at thelivest1.tumblr.com
Since the 1960s and 70s, artists have been intensely using their bodies in performance, video, and photography. This seminar will focus on the intersection of the body as used in the art object. We will discuss the body as a means of critiquing identity through the use of depictions involving humor, desire, and violence, among others.
This conversation-based class is open to everyone, no matter their knowledge, exposure, or participation with the art world. Artists discussed will be: Marina Abramovic and Ulay, Chris Burden, Erwin Wurm, Yoko Ono, Jennifer Locke, Laurel Nakadate, Nikki Lee, Ana Mendieta, Annie Sprinkle, Nao Bustamante, and William Pope.L.
L’Ecole Des Beaux Arts is a Brooklyn based, artist-run crafts & arts workshop. For the last few months Picture Farm Gallery has been offering its space on weekends to this neighborhood program, regularly providing an alternative to watching T.V., browsing the internet and feeling depressed about the weather.
Originally from Ireland, Feargal Doyle now lives and works in New York. He moved to New York in 2012 via Thailand, where he and his family spent two years on a life transforming adventure. It was during this time that he turned to painting as his full time occupation and passion. Prior to that his career had been in architecture ‐ working for several years with New York based ‘starchitect’ Daniel Libeskind on projects in his native Dublin and in Berlin ‐ and in theatre where he worked as a set designer.
In his paintings, Doyle is guided by the intuitive embodied wisdom of the hand. His paintings depict memories of people, places and events through the lens of his own experiential understanding of the world. This intuitive style is complimentary to his experience of working in the methodical, concept driven world of architecture and is a means toward self understanding and to communicate in a more meaningful way.
