Because of the overwhelming positive response from our first open call to artists from the five boroughs, Denise Bibro Fine Art is pleased to announce Art From The Boros II, on view June 19 through August 9, 2014. Out of approximately five hundred submissions from talented, unaffiliated artists in all the boroughs, Denise Bibro Fine Art narrowed the pool to eighty artists. Subsequently, we pounded the pavement and visited studios in Williamsburg, by the water in Redhook, the old Army Terminal in Gowanus, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Long Island City, Harlem, Inwood, and the Lower East Side (just to name a few), and finally selected fifty three artists.

These fifty-plus artists’ works are diverse in mediums, aesthetics, and content. They come from diverse socio and economic backgrounds. Regardless of their histories, upbringings, and economic circumstances, they persevere and revel in their New York environment. Art is one of their primary focuses and concerns. In this exhibition you will see both recycled and bought materials, various examples of collage and assemblage, works with political and social messages, and much more.

In a world that often projects galleries as jaded and inaccessible, we are demonstrating that we value and share the desire to keep up with the bustling creativity all around us. Our experience illustrates that one should always be open to thinking outside the box, taking risks, and informing your aesthetic vocabulary – if only to continue to appreciate and understand, or to be brave enough to inform and broaden one’s world and visual horizons. We challenge the viewer to be open and have fun.
