Amanda B. Friedman explores cognition, perception, and the distance between self, others, and the world. Her paintings, paper constructions, and drawings are informed by research on mental space - both inside and outside of the head. Friedman has participated in residencies at Vermont Studio Center, VT; Millay Colony for the Arts, NY, and at Virginia Commonwealth University, VA. Selected group exhibitions include Backyard Projects, NYC; Clifton Benevento, NYC; St. Cecilia’s Convent, Brooklyn; and with Apartment Show, Brooklyn. She lives in Brooklyn, NY.
Also, this show marks the 1-year anniversary of PACS exhibiting visual arts. Thanks so much to everyone who’s come out and supported! Let’s do another year, eh?

January 2012: Jeffrey Tranchell

View some pix: (lower res, sorry!)
Born in Owosso Michigan, Jeffrey Tranchell lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He earned his BFA in 2005 at College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. An art-handler by day, Tranchell is exposed to a lot of waste - from bubble wrap & foam being tossed into dumpsters to hydrochloric acid poured down drains. A fan of Maciunas’ use of “waste”, all that pure-tossing doesn’t sit well with him.
In his solo show at PACS, Tranchell displays about a dozen paintings which re-purposse materials such as torn coat linings, plastics, and broken canvas stretchers to suggest that all objects have potential, some purpose that consumes objects apart from their intended use or despite their “broken” state. Most artistic activity unavoidably generates a little trash, and Tranchell’s intent is not to condemn artists who fail to use every part of the buffalo….he’s just trying to find a place for all thisstuff.
Denise Kupferschmidt: 17-Foot Mural!
Past Event! View the install and mural photos here!
At the invitation of PACS Gallery, Denise Kupferschmidt has installed a permanent mural in the front room of Public Assembly. Occupying approximately 5 x 17 feet of estate above the venue’s front interior window, Kill Your Crude Idols references Kupferschmidt’s own Crude Idols drawing series, while serving as a nod to the NYC rock & no-wave documentary Kill Your Idols. The mural provides comfort and warmth to a raw, industrial garage.
The mural’s footer text was generated by the artist’s friend Ben Sisto, who did so by processing a cappella versions of popular songs with an Apple iPhone S4’s voice-to-text translator. The first line/phrase was selected from a translation of Jay-Z’s Izzo; the remainder from Wu Tang Clan’sC.R.E.A.M.
Recently named in Modern Painters’ “100 Artists to Watch”, Denise Kupferschmidt has been included in exhibitions in New York at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, Marvelli Gallery, Eleven Rivington, and the Horticultural Society of New York, as well as at Western Exhibitions in Chicago, and CAVE in Detroit. She has had solo exhibitions in Chicago, Boston, and New York. In 2010 she was featured as a NADA Emerging Artist in The L Magazine. Denise was co-organizer, with Joshua Smith, of “Apartment Show”, a series of roving group shows featuring artists in New York City.

December 2011: Reade Bryan
Houstonian turned Brooklynite Reade Bryan received a BFA in FIne Arts from the New School for Design in 2006. Over the past four years he’s toured the local woodshop & construction circuit, helping bring the city gems like Brooklyn Fireproof. In terms of form & fabrication his works draw upon those methods and materials associated with said day-jobs. Tile, brick, plywood, foam an in this show’s case, fiberglass insulation. The works on display were created on site from about 12pm-6pm, just prior to opening. Bryan’s spontaneity evokes a Guston-like humor, presenting the viewer with two clear options: take the works seriously, or laugh along.
