Reception: Thursday, July 26, 6 - 9 PM
site95 will present an exhibition benefit with over 80 artists. Taking place on July 26th, from 6 to 9 pm, the benefit captures the spirited feeling of our “Dead in August” series, a lively collection of cultural and artistic events for the public when the rest of New York has closed down and taken the typical August summer vacation. Over 80 artists have donated small-scale works including works on paper, paintings, photographs, and sculptures. The exhibition will be on view at Present Company in Brooklyn, New York and reproduced in the August site95 Journal. Ticket holders will take home a piece featured in the benefit. Along with providing a platform for local artists to display their work, the benefit will help site95 raise funds to cover exhibition expenses. Participating artists include Joshua Abelow, Wayne Adams, Daniel Albrigo, John James Anderson, Agnes Barley, Hannes Bend, Justin Bereman, Brent Birnbaum, Jude Broughan, Matt Brownell, Mat Bushell, Louis Cameron, Maureen Cavanaugh, Beau Chamberlain, Chris Chiappa, Jenna Choate, Eddie Chu, Ryan Coleman, Catherine Czacki, Bobby Davidson, Peter Demos, Jen Dohne, Tim Donovan, Chris Dorland, Lindsay Dye, Joe Graham-Felsen, Jenn Grainer, Ellen Harvey, Halsey Hathaway, Aubrey Hays, Adam Henry, Jacob Bond Hessler, Susan Hunt, Timothy Hutchings, Paul Jacobsen, Josh Jordan, Marina Kappos, Yasamin Keshtkar, Erin Knutson, Jolynn Krystosek, Christina Labey, Tyler Lafreniere, David Lemm, Jesse Lindmar, Phoenix Lindsey-Hall, Gareth Long, Francesco Longenecker, Annica Lydenberg, Kathryn Macnaughton, Shane McAdams, Joel Morrison, Mark Mulroney, Brian O’Connell, Salome Oggenfuss, Frank Parga, Adam Parker Smith, Daniel Peddle, Jason Peters, Rachel Bee Porter, Carissa Potter, Jenna Ransom, E.
