En Donde Los Dos Nos Encontremos
Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar in the West Village are using their storefront window space to exhibit the artwork of emerging and established artists in order to bring more art the the surface of NYC. Artist Valentina Medida is the current exhibitor and is opening her show Monday, June 15th with an opening reception that will include gourmet treats and wine. However, by the looks of it, her work seems to be more on the scientific side using hanging test tubes and specimen samples. Check out the reception Monday from 6 to 9pm or take a stroll in the West Village any day of the week and look at the work.

Iara Celeste Diaz: Post-Surrealism
To see a contemporary surrealist make work in a way that takes inspiration from a zany art historical time period but uses her own personal and modern iconography is so cool. These paintings by Iara Celeste Diaz are fantastic. You can see them at a reception on Thursday, June 18th from 7 to 9pm or through June 27th.

PanaMóvil: Mobile phone photographs of Panama by Sofia Verzbolovskis
Panamanian artist Sofia Verzbolovskis has a show at Taller Latino in which she shows photographs taken with her iPhone. She seeks to show “the hidden geometry of the urban landscape,” which she does well. Her works combining hard geometries and the gazes of city people are great. As you look through the photos, you forget that they were all taken with such a pervasive piece of technology. The show opens June 18th but the reception won’t take place until July 9th from 6 to 8pm.
