REPUBLIC Worldwide Presents: "Great Expectations" 3/9/2010

Republic Worldwide Presents;

“Great Expectations”

March 9, 2009

P.S. 122 Gallery, NYC

5pm – 7:30pm

Early on in life we begin to know ourselves through our dreams and aspirations. It is through our imaginations that we first engage the process of self-discovery and set out on the life long path toward our future selves. Sometimes our youthful vision of the person we might become seems fantastical and improbable, sometimes our path seems perfectly clear cut and sometimes it requires a leap of faith. Whatever the case, exploring ideas about who we are and who we want to become teaches us to develop valuable skills that cultivate the fertile creative ground upon which our futures are built. As young aspiring artists we test our gifts and learn to trust our own ideas as we navigate a course through the challenges of developing our own unique voice. Even as seasoned artists we never cease to imagine the future and where the great mystery of life might take us.

It is in this spirit that Republic Worldwide, presents “Great Expectations”, a group exhibition opening March 9th, 2009 at P.S. 122 Gallery to benefit the transition to life program at The Cooke Center for Learning and Development. As a collaborative project presenting ten original paintings by the aspiring student artists of the Cooke Center Academy in SoHo and selected works by established outsider artists such as Jessica Park and Susan Brown on loan from Pure Vision Arts Center, “Great Expectations” is an opportunity to ponder and explore the endless possibilities from which we build our futures.

P.S. 122 Gallery is located at the corner of Avenue A and 9th St. in Manhattan. Reception hours are from 5pm to 7:30pm. For more information please visit our, contact Jason Voegele at 917. 478. 7513 or write to

Madrid's Art Walk in New York: February 9th

Location: Grand Central's Vanderbilt Hall NYC
Time: 8:00AM Tuesday, February 9th

In the heart of NYC, from February 9th to Feb 12th Grand Central’s
Vandelbilt Hall will be hosting an exhibit on Madrid Unique Art Scene.

Stroll down the Path of Arts as if it was a sunny afternoon in Madrid.

This powerful exhibit consists of a curated selection of reproductions
to scale of the most iconic works currently exhibited at Madrid’s
mayor Museums: The Prado, The Thyssen-Bornemisza and The Reina Sofia.

The pieces represent some of the most important art collections in the
world and this exhibit brings New Yorkers a unique opportunity to peek
inside what Madrid’s art scene has to offer.

Although a reproduction, it is the first time Guernica,
the monumental anti-war mural painted by Pablo Picasso in 1937, will
be shown in New York City since it was returned to Spain by the Museum
of Modern Art in 1981.

Visitors will be able to pick their favorite pieces entering to win
Spanish Souvenirs from 8am to 8pm. Free admission.

We are certain, after this little taste of Madrid, New Yorkers will be
booking their next Spain-Bound vacation.
