Sabay Curatorial Space
SABAY CURATORIAL SPACE has a changing exhibition of contemporary art every 2 months or so showing art that isn't seen enough outside the conventional gallery setting. Whether you are an artist or art lover, we hope that you will enjoy
having your meal in this creative setting & perhaps, even consider purchasing an artwork for your home.

Artists, is your art seen enough??  If not, send me your jpegs!

If you are an artist interested in showing there, email 6 jpegs (no larger than 500 dpi in either direction), your bio & a brief artist statement to: ncognita@earthfire.org. You might check out the space (& the food!) before so that you can select art that will be appropriate size-wise. I suggest no art larger than 40" square or smaller then 8x10". And of course, ready to hang.

Sabay Thai Restaurant & Curatorial Space is located at 75-19 Broadway near 75th St in Elmhurst, Queens

Directions: By subway, take the R, E, F, Q or W to
Roosevelt Av/Jackson Hgts.
or the # 7 to 74th st/Broadway.

Jacki's now in India and it was after her show that they redecorated, painting the chartruse wall to creme... actually she's the blond sitting above under Richard's paintings.

   

   
Srividya Kannan Ramachandran:
Apologies that these images are not better of Srivi's beautiful and meditative photographs on aluminum.

   

   



JANUARY 2015

The subtle city scapes of Karen Roth have been replaced with the dazzling abstract paintings and prints of Viridian Artist Diane Root, also known as Matakia. The show will be up through mid to late March.
She hasnt yet decided when her recption will be. The paintings on canvas are $1500 and the smaller prints are just $500.
See you there and be sure to take a window seat in the sun where you can see both the small works above the mirror and the paintings reflected.

    


SEPTEMBER 2014

TIME FLYING BY AS USUAL.  Painter Karen Roth now at Sabay. I still remember an early pink ish Rothko(!)-esque abstract with cloth tied  (or rope) around it.
 But her more recent paintings are more realistic & equally nicely done. The show will be up through mid November.
Come, eat, look. Maybe even buy one for they are well - priced and wonderful. Window views... perhaps.

   

SUMMER 2014

Viridian Artists at Sabay- one of everyone's but Alan Gaynor- totally slipped our minds for his was the show just before and when we removed his photos, we forgot to put one aside to stay for the summer.

FALL 2012

Robert Smith, a photographer and Viridian Artist, has been photographing his vision of the world upclose and personal. He sees shapes in other ways and almost other dimensions and through his photography (& clues via his titles!)- he is   shares his vision with humor & creativity.

   



OCTOBER 2012

This fall finds the wonderful paintings of Mexico by Kellyn Alder at Sabay. She also included the art of children she works with in Mexico. Alder was once a Viridian Artist and continues to show internationally.

Fall 2011

A new exhibition at Sabay Curatorial Space consists of photographs by the artist David Rodgers. Small 8x10" black & white photos, they are his version of anonymous photographs found in an attic.  The reception was also a "good-bye for the moment" party for his lady friend Katrina, a German photographer returning to her home there. She'll be back though! David's show will be up through February, so stop by the Sabay Thai restaurant ( address  in September 2010 listing below) for lunch, dinner &/or happy hour & take a look at the walls.

   


I'm always interested in looking at new work, so email me your jpegs if you feel your art goes with Thai food!

Not sure when I had my Uncle George Ludway's watercolors up but I didnt have time to frame them & frankly couldn't decide which ones to hang & so I hung too many!

    

  

 And I think just before Uncle George's watercolors were the beautiful solarprints of Jan McClish, my sister in law

OCTOBER / NOVEMBER 2010
Sabay Thai Curatorial Space
presents
'landscape as patch'
new work by
Annaliese Bischoff
Now on view at Sabay is the art of Annaliese Bischoff, beautiful tiny collages.

Just before, a  variety of my collages from the past few years. Included are my small Haiku collages as well as other works.

Just finished was a show of the artful sunmade photographs of Massachusetts photographer Janet McClish.  

February/March at Sabay featured 2 artists who work with landscape & watercolor in very different ways-   E Margo (Edie Schlesinger) studied painting in China for a number of years and as a result, her artistic expression was transformed.
George Ludway, a cartoonist for most of his life, turned to watercolor at 75. He trained himself in the difficult media of watercolor, gaining the reputation in his native Ohio as the "Shanty Man" because of his numerous paintings of hidden woodsy abodes.
In this show, his traditional Western approach to landscape is contrasted to E Margo's more Eastern interpretation.
