Ridgewood, Queens, NY – Thursday, May 16, 2013
Landscapes, and vaginal vegetation, the main gallery at Ridgewood’s Valentine gallery is a two woman show that juxtaposes the bright landscapes of Amy Lincoln, with the dark and moody labial cacti of Loie Hollowell.
This gallery is only few minutes from my studio by bike, and mostly downhill so even though I was pressed for time I was able to coast down and check it out.
The gallery packed up quickly with plaid and black leather.

The lovely Loie Hollowell poses in front of one of her pieces. “A reporter was here earlier and didn’t want to take any shots of my work, he was writing for a family paper and said they are too dirty.” Loie told me. “I like writing about dirty art, the dirtier the better. They are just vegetables right?” I replied.
In the back gallery was the work of Ron Richter.
His cartoonish animal work is a polar opposite of the work in the main gallery.
One of Ron’s more realistic animals.
