Aug. 13, 2014: On September 13 and 14, a pop-up art show will transform an empty Bronxville storefront (66 Pondfield Road) into a pop-up art gallery with a free and open reception on Saturday, September 13, from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
The pop-up art show will showcase the work of nearly 25 New York-based emerging artists, representing photography, painting, drawing, mixed-media, and sculpture, who are exploring individual themes and concepts.
The pop-up art show provides a unique opportunity for emerging artists to publicly exhibit their work while simultaneously bringing life and vibrancy to an underutilized space. The artist exhibition positively impacts a town by bringing new visitors to the area and stimulating local businesses.
The art show is the second pop-up art show organized in Bronxville, with the first held in the summer of 2012. Pop-Up Art Show is a not-for-profit community event organized and curated by Cara Garcia-Bou, Bronxville native and graduate of Fieldston School (2009) and Bates College (2013). Cara is currently the advertising and marketing associate at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Susan Miele, executive director of the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce, said, "Consistent with our Rodin in Bronxville event of last year, the Chamber once again celebrates the interplay of art and community. This art show is another good example of how an art exhibition, businesses, and residents can benefit from one another--beyond the aesthetics."
The pop-up art show is free and open to the community. The storefront space is generously donated by Admiral Real Estate Services Corp.
The exhibit is open from noon to 9:00 pm on Saturday, September 13, and from noon to 5:00 pm on Sunday, September 14. There will be a reception on Saturday from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm, which is free, and all are welcome.
