Why do you work in the photography medium?

Instant gratification of image making. Being able to control how it is being seen and know how it can be shown to an audience. Being able to make a photo invoke emotions as well as playing with the truth of the photo. Read more on Bon Duke in the KiptonART Online Magazine.
ART NEW YORK
Art Review: Art In Odd Places, 2009

by Desiree Rose

Art In Odd Places
arms its visitors with not only a map of the exhibits that line 14th Street, but with also a heightened sense of awareness that the average citizen or visitor to New York generally lacks. The daily blur of life blinds most people walking through the hubbub of 14th Street; yet when it is unexpectedly lifted and we are forced to confront the space around us, we suddenly find ourselves in an artistic and critical exchange with the public space. Art In Odd Places spans 14th Street from October 1-26, 2009. Walk the street and open your eyes!

FEATURED GALLERY
Like The Spice

Like The Spice Logo

Location: 224 Roebling Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211
Owner: Marisa Sage

Where did the name for your gallery come from?
Well, I have always been a bit punny. I'm a big fan of cheesy jokes and a good play on words can always make me laugh. For as long as I can remember when someone asked me to repeat my last name, I have said; "Sage, Like the Spice." So when I opened my gallery I decided to name it Like the Spice for two reasons: one, so I could constantly go Ba-dum-bump and hit my knee; and two, to make a little bit of fun of my fellow gallerists' narcissistic tendencies to name their galleries after themselves.
