A solo show featuring PhoebeNewYork, the alter ego of local artist Libby Schoettle, will be on display starting tomorrow night at 212 Arts Gallery, 523 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.
Her new exhibit titled “Wall to Wall” will celebrate the always vulnerable, yet strong PhoebeNewYork, while laying bare how imperfect the life of a woman and an artist can be.
In this show, PhoebeNewYork is clearly conjured from an alchemy of the artist’s intimate introspections and public persona. Through her distinctively raw, cut-out forms PhoebeNewYork reveals so much about identity, woman-power, and rebellion.
The opening tomorrow night is from 6-9:30. The exhibit will be up through Jan. 29.
