AIANY/Center for Architecture: Sea Level, Five Boroughs at Water's Edge

AIA New York Chapter/Center for Architecture x Seaport Culture District!

What does the city look like from sea level?

Like the government-sponsored U.S. coastal surveys of the nineteenth century, Sea Level is a water’s-eye view of New York – the city documented by photographer Elizabeth Felicella from its tidal edge. The panorama begins at Fort Wadsworth, which has, since the Revolutionary War, guarded the city and the Upper Bay of New York Harbor from the most eastern tip of Staten Island, the Narrows. It bends 25 miles north, to Fort Totten, another ancient strategic post that stands at the place where the East River ends and Long Island Sound begins. Along this trajectory through the East River, the viewer will see a shore of every borough, along with the raw geography, history, and built development that mark and characterize it. Large photographic collages will explore the construction of the panorama itself. Essays by author Robert Sullivan explore the deep history of the waterfront that is captured by Felicella’s contemporary photography. Photography: Elizabeth Felicella
Writing: Robert Sullivan
Architecture: Andrew Berman Architect
Graphic Design: Perrin Studio
Construction: IBEX

Location: 181 Front Street
Date: September 10th - December 31st
Time: Mondays 12-4pm; Tuesdays-Sundays 11am-8pm

Farm Candy presents Ellen Bradshaw

Farm Candy presents Ellen Bradshaw Oil paintings

"Vision from the South Street Seaport"

Artist Reception: Thursday, November 19th, 5-8pm

About The Artist:
Ellen Bradshaw’s work was influenced by the realism of the Ashcan painters of the 1910-30’s, as well as the sense of color and atmosphere explored by the Impressionists.

Ellen’s usual subject is New York City. "I’m draw to the common everydayness of life in the city, and perhaps what is hidden just beneath the surface of the ordinary. The reflective moody quirky streets of Lower Manhattan are my usual subjects - teh neighborhoods, the personalities of her buildings, the majesty of her bridges, the streets transforemd by snow or the colors of night, the lone figures of daily routine, the everyday intensity of the simple passing of moments against that in-your-face reality that in New York City."

Ellen’s landscape paintings depict the beautiful Finger Lakes Region in update Western New York, her show "Heading Home, Keuka Lake" can be viewed in the Landscapes collection!

Ellen is currenlty President of Pleiades Gallery since 2000.

Location: 21 Fulton Street
Date: November 19 - December 31, 2015
