MAY 7th = Success!

REPUBLIC would like to offer a whole-hearted thank you to all of the amazing people who came out to support the launch of our website and spectacular art exhibition this Thursday in Brooklyn, down under the Manhattan bridge overpass, at 20 Jay Street. A special thanks to Flora, from Julie Pochron Studios, for her extraordinary generosity, and Julia, from Water Street Restaurant and Lounge, for the perfect swirl of decadence and class at the after party.

Pochron Studios, ideally situated on the top floor, provided a breath-taking view of Manhattan and the bridges; but that was not the only attraction: the art works from the Formation exhibit were all top notch. Lenny Reibstein’s oil paintings and ink sketches were well received, along with Isaac Palatt’s oil on canvas piece. The dialogue created by Jazz-Mihn Moore’s oil on birch panel trilogy, and her acrylic, ink, rain, resin on birch panel piece was vast. Eunkang Koh’s gouache ink pieces were greatly admired, but Joshua Johnson’s Anatural sculptures and William Rhodes’ found object sculptures added the perfect touches to the beautiful space.

The weather was superb, the moon was full, and our new website is now live and ready for visitors, so stop by often to check for updates on our exciting new events we have planned for May and June. Save the date for Reaching Out: Gisimba Orphanage on May 29th at Le Grand Dakar on Grand St. in Clinton Hill. The traditional live music and dance is set, and a menu has been arranged and the night is guaranteed to satisfy. You'll want to show up with your heart full and your belly empty. All month long REPUBLIC, in cooperation with Create for a Cause and Fractured Atlas, is raising funds for the Gisimba Memorial Center in Rwanda and this event will be the most fun you have ever had doing something so right for the world.

REPUBLIC couldn’t have asked for a better reception and we look forward to your continued support in the future.
