The Birdhouse Gallery of Contemporary Miniature Art Opens its Second Show

Artist /curator Sunny Chapman is pleased to announce the opening of The Birdhouse Gallery’s second group show.
The Birdhouse Gallery is a miniature gallery of tiny contemporary art. Located at street level at 499 E. Front Street, the gallery is about the size of a Little Library or a large birdhouse.

The new show, Ocean Garden, will feature a group of notable contemporary artists from New York City and beyond exploring the mysteries of the deep. The opening party will be outdoors on Saturday May 15 from 2 until 6pm. The show will be viewable during daylight hours from June 19 until July 15. The artists work will also be available through the curators website,

Nancy Erickson Dutmer
Entertainment is the backbone of my art.  When painting, I prefer to work in oils, but the theatrics shine more through my painted fabric and bead embroidered art pieces. They both satisfy my artistic cravings in different ways, and they both feed into my desire for audience entertainment.

Seren Morey
Seren Morey is a sculptural mixed media artist from NYC who makes paintings inspired by the energy particles that connect all matter together. Her work references the continual movement that animates all biological and botanical forms, often in a fantastical and hybridized format.

Jackie Shatz
Jackie Shatz is a sculptor who lives in New York. Upcoming group shows at Zurcher and LaiSun Keene Galleries.
She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Grant, a Tree of Life Grant and a Gottlieb Foundation Grant.

Fedele Spadafora
A distinctive aspect of my work as a painter is my ability to capture the essence of a place. My paintings of New York are straightforward realism. Whether it is a quiet moment in a diner or the chaotic interior of the kitchen in a Chinese takeout place, I aim to transmit a sense of those places. While never straying too far from realism and a resonant respect for tradition, I sometimes allow imagination to lead me. My use of color, for instance, moves my work from the pure observation associated with representational art toward memory and impression.
