Pop-Up Art Gallery Presents: Orange Alert

"White Out" by Barbara Smith Gioia

Come out to check out the reincarnation of The Pop-Up Gallery. This exhibition features the well known who quietly live among us. The five artists: Stephanie Bursese, Robert Brush, John Delk, David Freund, and Barbara Smith Gioia have exhibited widely outside of the area, but have rarely, if ever, shared their work with their local community in Orange County. According to one commenter, it will be like “PS1 in Queens in its early 80’s days, and is a very important show.” (Facebook Event Page)

The Pop-Up Gallery’s mission is to transform unrented or, in this case, transitional spaces into a gallery for a short period of time. Artists and art lovers have an opportunity to see artwork that is not often shown in Orange County while participating in the cultural revival of an economically diverse area. Chambers Street is off Broadway, almost directly across from the Ritz Theater. (Ann Street Gallery and the cafes and shops on Liberty Street are just two blocks away.) The exhibition uses the second floor of a restored warehouse that is being rented as artists’ studios. Please come and bring your friends! This is the good kind of Orange Alert.

This exhibition features only Orange County artists. The Pop-Up Gallery is interested in showing challenging work that is under-represented in Orange County. Support your local artists!

The opening is on November 21st from 1-4pm.
