For its third annual "Art of the City" summer program, GreenGale Publishing once again promoted contemporary U.S. artists across its 11 regional luxury lifestyle publications. For the past three years, GreenGale has placed U.S. artists' original works on the covers of its cities to show their commitment to art awareness in U.S. Cities.
In celebration of its "Art of the City" issue, Gotham Magazine Editor-In-Chief, Samantha Yanks, and Voltz Clarke Gallery Founder, Blair Clarke, hosted a party honoring the cover artist Lisa Schulte. Guests were welcomed to the invite-only event where they joined in on the celebration.
Considered by many as one of the best visual artists, Lisa Schulte has worked exclusively in neon since 1984 and has studied under Master Tube Bender Freddie Elliot. Schulte's work has appeared in many prominent movies, music videos, and television shows over the past 30 years.
In the new issue, Schulte opens up about how losing her eyesight for three months after a freak childhood accident changed her sense of light forever. Many of her works, including some text pieces, will be on display in New York's Voltz Clarke Gallery this summer.
During the celebration, Lisa's "i Live In Denial" artwork was on display, with net proceeds from the auction benefiting Free Arts NYC. Some of Lisa's other artwork will be available for preview and bidding through an online auction house at Paddle8 until July 21. If you want to be the proud owner of this amazing piece of work and at the same time support charity, go bid on it now.
The event started off spectacularly, with arriving guests being treated to delicious Lobster rolls and Hors d'Oeuvres, by Relish Caterers, and strong drinks by Beam Suntory, Peroni Beer, and VOSS water.
The night went on splendidly as everyone mingled and enjoyed the art works. So, what are you waiting for? Go pick up the latest Gotham Magazine to read all about Schulte's story and support Free Arts NYC.
