MEET 185 ARTISTS AND ARTISANS.
Unlike any other NYC art show, this event celebrates all forms of creativity with a unique concept: Two individual shows within the same setting. This has proven to be a big attraction for art lovers of all kinds.
See the inspired efforts of established and emerging independent painters, photographers and sculptors.
American Fine Craft Show-find fine furniture, ceramics, glass, wood, metal, textiles, fashion, jewelry and accessories, timed for gift-giving.
OPENING RECEPTION Friday, October 25th, 5-6:30 pm.
Special Performances by The Voice’s star Christian Porter and NY Artist Minnie Dee. “Minnie Dee is excited to perform an uptempo groovy set, while Christian will bring a special acoustic set just for the Contemporary Art Fair.”
ART OFF THE MAIN. A special section to present affordable art by emerging and established artists from regions and cultures that have traditionally been underrepresented in other art fairs. Showcasing works by over 30 African American, African and Caribbean artists. There has been an absence of a black art presence in the New York art fair scene for the past five years. Let us all work together to rebuild the vibrant, high quality market of the 80’s- 90’s. Be an “artvocate” through your attendance!

Before the summary: another great opportunity for writers & theatre enthusiasts & in/for our beloved Hell’s Kitchen!
All participants will receive 10 hours of free rehearsal time (during off-peak hours, usually daytime weekdays). This is something new, adopted from the MITF of recent years. The theory is that I can buy rehearsal time in bulk where you have to pay retail, so a modest expense for me saves a bundle for you. I’m glad to do it if it’ll encourage you to take part in the Festival.
You will receive half the net, defined as half the difference between your gross and 40% of the maximum possible gross. People ask me, “How much you going to pay me to be in your Festival?”, and I say, “Why should I pay you when I don’t charge you to be here in the first place?” But I understand that putting on a play costs money, so here’s an incentive for you to go out and sell tickets. I love that!
One-act plays are an easy, cheap, and fun way to see your work on its feet. To submit a script, send it as an attachment in .doc or .pdf format. firstname.lastname@example.org.. AAlso seek CHILDREN’S Plays for February 2014!
Every small theatre company in the country is aware of the possibilities of children’s theatre (meaning, for me, theatre performed by adults for children and their parents). Why? Because children’s-theatre audiences are populated by people whose only requirement is that they have children (or be children). If you perform children’s theatre and market it properly, you can expect regular audiences of people who otherwise wouldn’t think of going to a play.
The Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival, now in its 4th season, is inaugurating a Children’s Theatre Division. We are searching for companies who want to try out new material in this genre, either to see it on its feet, test it with a young audience, or develop an audience for themselves. To create a special focus for the genre, we’re reserving special slots early on weekend mornings & daytime on Thursdays and Fridays (Mondays through Wednesdays–reserved for tech rehearsals).
Here are the salient details of the Festival:
Dates for the Festival are Feb. 10 – Mar. 1, 2013.
*12 pt Times Roman; character names in the middle on their own line; line spaces between speeches and stage directions; indented stage directions; 1″ margins all around.
I’ve presented a lot of Festivals, and I have a special interest in children’s theatre. Festivals are an easy, cheap, and fun way to see your work on its feet. To submit a script, send it as an attachment in .doc or .pdf format to email@example.com. n questions, don’t hesitate to shoot me an E-mail
Now at the great Contemporary art Festival that is the central feature of this newsletter, make sure you catch this very impressive intersection of technology & childhood delight: Professional NYC multimedia artist, self-educated, reclusive, bespectacled, tall, stoic, sarcastic, eccentric, hard-rocking, tattooed…And his kids toys are high tech functional!
Julius von Brunk — also known as Baron von Brunk — is a Pennsylvania-born graphic artist and master LEGO builder. The Baron’s original LEGO creations feature a broad array of themes, mostly encompassing the geeky subculture — with an emphasis on retro video games. Most notably, Baron von Brunk is best remembered for building a large sculpture of a vintage Nintendo Entertainment System controller made entire from LEGO bricks, and wired to actually play games. A lot of his other works consist of perfectly-scaled replicas of video game systems, game cartridges, and accessories that each transform into various robots similar to Hasbro’s “The Transformers” toy line. Von Brunk designs packages and print material for consumer goods as a full-time trade, whilst creating elaborate LEGO models as a serious hobby. His long-term goal is to be a toy designer for a major brand, such as Tyco, Hasbro, Fisher-Price — or even LEGO Group themselves. To check out his personal homepage, visit baronvonbrunk.com, and be sure to like his Facebook fan page to keep up with his updates on current works-in-progress for his custom builds.
