The time just after arcade games had made the leap to consoles, and home gaming systems had gotten good enough that arcades were beginning to die out. Yes friends, the era of Mario and the Mushroom Universe. All things 90s and rad are celebrated in this hypercolor vision of the not to distant past.
The gallery is on two floors, and composed of three large rooms. This is the basement gallery. In this photo you can see art writer Sean Alday as well as Bushwick Daily writer and photographer Katarina Hybenova.
I also ran into Ridgewood artists Joe Ballweg and Andrea Bergart.

Walk out into the hallway and go left, the open door is the third and largest room of 950 Hart. It's also the room with the booze.
Painter and gallery co-owner Antoinette Johnson was working the bar.

Here artist Antoinette Johnson stands in front of one of her large (almost life sized) brightly colored nude acylics.

I said my goodbyes and grabbed a parting shot of the 950 Hart sign on my way out. One of the many galleries within walking distance of my studio I headed for home on foot and stumbled into an underground poetry reading (click to read).
The weirdness never ends. . .
