today's mantra

Just sharing...SOURCE:  My good friend KATHY!
"Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it. 
Life is a game, play it

Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it. 

Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it. 
Life is a tragedy, confront it. 
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is life, fight for it."

Whether you live in the NYC area or need an excuse for a fall visit, check out Open House New York weekend on October 11 and 12. The event, now in its twelfth year, invites the public to explore architecture, design, and cultural sites throughout the five boroughs. Among the more than 200 sites that will open their doors (many typically closed to the public) are the 425-square-foot “Manhattan Micro-Loft” atop an Upper West Side brownstone, the meticulously restored Williamsburgh Savings Bank building at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge, and Kickstarter’s new Brooklyn headquarters, located in the remnants of the historic Eberhard Faber Pencil Factory. Listings of all OHNY Weekend sites will be posted on the OHNY websiteon September 30, and reservations can be made beginning at 11 a.m. on October 1. Be quick, because once the event guide hits newsstands on October 2 as an insert in Time Out New York, the waitlists—and disappointments—are bound to follow.

tonight the opening ...on view @ FIAF in September

Julie Béna 
T&T Consortium:
You’re already elsewhere
Opening Tue, Sept 16
from 6–8pm
Wed, Sept 17–Sat, Oct 18
FIAF Gallery
Viewing Hours
Tue–Fri: 11am–6pm
Sat: 11am–5pm
FIAF Gallery
22 East 60th Street
New York, NY 10022

French artist Julie Béna invites gallery visitors to enter a transitional space on the threshold of science fiction and reality. This site-specific installation of sculptures, sound, images, and videos infiltrates and disrupts the FIAF Gallery and its surroundings. Remaining open and porous, each element functions as signs of a fiction to be imagined by the visitors.

This exhibition is held under the auspices of Atoll Corporation, a phantom company created by Béna that develops indexically, leaving traces throughout her projects.
Curated by Flora Katz
About Julie Béna
Julie Béna (b.1982) is a Paris-based artist who treats the exhibition space as a playground for her objects, texts, videos, photos and performances. Borrowing from the language of theater, games, and popular culture, her work aims to disrupt and transform the mundane into the dramatic. Béna has exhibited work at the Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Ricard, 100% Transparent as part of Performa 13, and recently at Fahrenheit Los Angeles, where she presented Act 2 of Have you seen Pantopoon Rose?

on view @ the Rye Arts Center

Irving Harper: A Mid-Century Mind at Play
Curated by Katharine Dufault & Jeff Taylor
September 14 - November 8, 2014
Opening reception: Sunday, September 14, 1-3pm

Irving Harper, a Rye resident and mid-century design genius, is The Rye Arts Center’s featured Famous Artist for Fall 2014.  Known professionally for his iconic contributions to the George Nelson Office, including the 1949 Ball Clock and 1965 Marshmallow Sofa, Harper is little known for his own private sculptural works which he created primarily with paper and Elmer’s glue.  His intricate and whimsical works are informed by Modern masters such as Picasso, Calder, Rothko, David Smith and Louise Nevelson. Harper’s paper sculptures and wall hangings -- which have never before been shared outside his home in such a fashion -- will make their debut in a solo retrospective exhibition in The Rye Arts Center’s Gallery Sept. 14-Nov. 8
