Walnut Hill Framing and Fine Art Services

Walnut Hill : Exhibition Framing and Fine Art Services is proud to present a selection of works from "Next Stop Atlantic".

In a bold move, the NYC Transit authority joined the artifcial reef building program off the East Coast of the US in 2000 and sent stripped and decontaminated subway cars off on barges to be dropped into the Ocean in order to build refuge for many species of sh and crustaceans which would colonize the structures.

Mallon traces the progress of the train cars on their way towards their last voyage, majestic waves approach the viewer in these large scale photographs as they too are transported out to sea to behold the lifting and transfer of these massive machines. One photograph hauntingly depicts elements of nature creeping into their barren hulls, drifts of snow lines the walkways, a glimpse of sunshine streams through their removed doors as they wait in stacks to be carted off to sink to the dark depths of the ocean oor.

Mallon’s photographs elicit both the sadness and the beauty of cascading water overtaking these iconic g- ures of New York transit as they sink beneath the sur- face of the water; surges and sprays are caught in time. Stephen Mallon dedicated the last three years to fol- lowing this endeavor, chronicling the last phase of NYC Transit’s involvement in this program. The photographs that are presented in this exhibition capture the grandi- osity of this effort; the weight of these 18-ton train cars can be felt as they are ferried off and plunged into the water.

The Ballot show


"The  USS Radford"  30x45  edition of 5

Opening: Friday Oct 14th 7-9

October 14th-23th, 2016

Fri-Sun 1-6 & by appointment

147 Roebling St, Brooklyn NY 11211

The Front Room Gallery is proud to present the Fourth quadrennial "Ballot Show", which focuses on the American electoral system, and the overall notion of voting with a ballot. "The Ballot Show," held every 4 years since 2004, is inspired by the American election, and contemplates our antiquated electoral-college voting process.

The impetus for the first “Ballot Show” was disillusionment with the shoddy way the 2000 election had been handled—hanging chads, votes not counted, people not allowed into the polls, the Supreme Court decision. Many artist’s works in the following two versions of the exhibition (in 2008 and in 2012) dealt with the archaic nature of our electoral process, but also with the feeling that we as a people aren’t happy with the choices that we are offered. This year we are faced with an election with the two least popular candidates ever, and it seems both side’s votes are driven by hatred of the other sides contender. This election is a turbocharged reality show fueled by accusations and innuendo live on 24 hour social media. It’s possible the only actual fact we will see in this whole campaign is that one person will be elected in November.

Featuring works by: Daniel Aycock, Julia Whitney Barnes, Guy Ben-Ari,Thomas Broadbent, Phil Buehler, Ken Butler, Dave Cole, Ethan Crenson, Linda Ganjian, Peter Fox, Enrico Gomez, Sean Hemmerle, Kim Holleman, David Kramer, Jesse Lambert, Lisa Levy, Stephen Mallon, Sascha Mallon, Karen Marston, Mark Masyga, Ross Racine, Marshall Reese/Nora Ligorano, Daniel Rosenbaum, Emily Roz, Sante Scardillo, Philip Simmons, Jeremy Slater, Mark Stilwell, Rodger Stevens, Miho Suzuki, Jim Torok, Kathleen Vance, Cibele Vieira, Monika Wuhrer, Ahron Weiner, and more..
