Opening May 7th, 7-10pm with an evening of electronic music curated by Matthew Ostrowski beginning at 8 pm.
“Off the Grid” is a formalist show. A grid of lines dissect each other: like blocks of streets make a city, this network of artists crosses, creating a power grid. This show is a matrix, a lattice, a reticulation. The artists: painters – Deborah Adams (deborahadamspainting.blogspot.com), Margaret Heffernan (www.mystery-rock.org), Hillary Moore, David Moreira (www.davidboydleemoreira.blogspot.com), and Patricia Sprott; photographers – Elizabeth Ennis, and Joanna Hartell, an installation by Jeanelle Marie (jeanellemarie.com/), and experimental video by Lili White (liliwhite.com) The music at the opening is curated by electronic artist Matthew Ostrowski (ostrowski.info/) and features at the work of David Linton (http://bicameral.multiply.com/), Matthew Ostrowski & Andrea Parkins, and Kamran Sadegi (kamransadeghi.com). An additional evening of music and art on Saturday May 14th at 8pm will feature the music of Zan Zone (zanzone.com). 17 Frost is located in the heart of Williamsburg and has fast become one of the most exciting and experimental showcases in New York today.
