We brought eye candy to Brooklyn with our "SWEET SPOT" pop-up exhibition on Friday, July 1st.
Work was selected by jurors Luca Dupras, Seth Boggs and Mike Martin. Exhibitors included: Allison DeBritz, Laura Miner, Bryan Northup, Anthony Papini, Kristin Kempa, Lorryn Moore, Wren Caroline Gardiner, Michelle Eccles, Dane Stahr, John Murray, Emily Duong, Brittany Schmid, Bubblegum & Whiskey and Joshua Newth.
Artists were asked to respond to the question: What’s your SWEET SPOT? Cats on YouTube, Netflix and Chill, Payday, Weekends? Personally, we like treats. Desserts are a last impression, and can be the most memorable part of a meal- they're a work of art in themselves: colorful, beautiful and baked to perfection. No one needs dessert to survive, but that doesn't stop us from looking forward to enjoying our next one. We congratulate others with sweets. We celebrate life's accomplishments and milestones with cake. We even grieve with ice cream. What do you fancy? What gets you through?
30% of proceeds from the event were donated to the online anti-bullying non-profit "End To Cyber Bullying" (find out more about them at: endcyberbullying.org). "SWEET SPOT" had its first Brooklyn pop-up exhibition at Court Tree Collective, and images from the event were captured by Alex Krauss. (See more of Alex's work at http://www.alexkrauss.com)
