McNeill Art Group Tribeca Project Space
Plastic, Rubber + Wood

October 8 - January 25, 2010

McNeill Art Group, of Southampton, New York is proud to announce the opening of the Tribeca Project Space in New York City. The inaugural exhibition Plastic, Rubber + Wood, curated by Beth McNeill, will open with a reception on Wednesday, October 21st, from 6-9pm. A press preview will be held Wednesday October 14th from 3-5pm.

Plastic, Rubber + Wood, is an exploration of material, through content, subject, and form. The exhibit challenges our conception of the industrial materials of which our manmade world is comprised. Incorporating several processes, including photography, sculpture, painting and installation, the exhibition unveils the materials' inherent beauty and alters our conscious perception of them as elements. Exhibiting artists include American artists Tapp Francke, Mike Solomon, Bob Schwarz, Rob Fischer, Jeff Muhs, Soraida Bedoya, Tyrome Tripoli, Edward Lightner, and Samantha Thomas, Korean artist Ji Yong-Ho and Turkish artist Esma Pacal Turam.

The exhibition runs from October 8th through January 25, 2010. The McNeill Art Group project space is located at 143 Reade St, Tribeca, New York. The space is open by appointment only. For appointments call 631-838-4843.

Beth McNeill, 29 and residing in Southampton, New York, is the founder of McNeill Art Group.

McNeill Art Group began as an art consulting and acquisitions company in 2005. After establishing a presence as a private dealer and exhibiting artists at international art fairs around the world, McNeill began seeking exhibition opportunities in alternative spaces. In an effort to continue the global movement towards enhancing the visibility of contemporary art, while steering clear of the traditional gallery structure, Beth McNeill worked with Artisan Lofts to create the McNeill Art Group Tribeca Project Space. The Tribeca Project Space is on the ground floor of Artisan Lofts in Tribeca, New York. This “experimental project space” will adapt to current conditions of the art market allowing for continuous adaptation, progression and growth, truly being a unique assemblage.
