Team Plaztik converted the front gallery into a carnival-like atmosphere as an appropriate way to experience Pufferella's hand-sewn panels. Josh's paintings (along with a performance for opening night) were featured in the back room. His fantastic creatures remind me of Basquiat combined with the famous monsters' cantina scene from the original Star Wars movie. I loved one so much, I actually bought it. I am now an official art collector!
The gallery is blessed with a spacious corner location not far from the subway, and an outdoor courtyard that makes for an irresistible party space. The folks at Factory Fresh really know how to draw a crowd in this fairly industrial area, although it is one teeming with artists. The openings are lively; a far cry from the sterile whitewashed walls of Chelsea, where one can experience an art opening the way it was meant to be enjoyed. But don't take my word for it. Go and check out the gallery for yourself!
