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.
Some more of her work recently arrived outside the Bean on 3rd Street at Second Avenue...

On Sunday afternoon, I stopped by 212 Arts where gallery co-directors Lulu Reich and Marc Leader hosted Mike (MiMo) Mozart's live-painting event.

Mozart is part of the Art Basel on 4th Street exhibit at the gallery, 240 E. Fourth St. at Avenue B, where you can also see works by Claw, Sean Sullivan, Blind156 and Reso, among others, through Dec. 31.
Mozart, a longtime illustrator, has also apparently been doing ghost-drawing for Alec Monopoly ... including work featuring Hasbro's iconic board-game character Mr. Monopoly. (BoweryBoogie recently looked into the relationship between Mozart and Monoploy here.)
During the time I was there on Sunday, Mozart's work was selling and there were people clearly excited and entertained to see him creating art on-site.
Here, Mozart created a pen-and-ink (with pastels and pencil) rendition of Mr. Moneybags...
