Fort Works Art presents the U.S. premiere of HEAVYWEIGHTPAINT in support of their current exhibit #28Grams — featuring 28 artists culled from Instagram from around the world. HEAVYWEIGHTPAINT features four artists’ struggle as they work and live in Brooklyn. Two of these artists, Jerome Lagarrigue and Tim Okamura, are showcased in #28GRAMS and will be present along with the director, Jeff Martini, to discuss the documentary.

The documentary takes its audience through the intimate details of four unique figurative artists’ — filmed over the span of five years. Their unlikely friendships and efforts to break the ‘barriers’ as working painters in Brooklyn, led them to raise funds for a collaborative show — creating potential to finally land them in the spotlight.

AFTER PARTY: Join Director Jeff Martini and Artists Jerome Lagarrigue and Tim Okamura at Fort Works Art following the screening for an exclusive meet-and-greet and to see first hand their work on display in the #28Grams exhibit.

“Duets: A Comparison of Realities” extended through January 14


Duets has been extended until January 14, 2017 at FORT WORKS ART. After a successful showing at Scope Miami we have extended Duets for your viewing pleasure. Please stop by and visit us in the New Year!

Duets challenges the viewer to both compare and contrast the artists that have been paired together. Recognizably similar in visual language, there are also visible differences that can be noted between Lauren Childs and Alonsa Guevara; Riley Holloway and Tim Okamura; and finally Dan Lam and Sergio Garcia.

Lauren Childs and Alonsa Guevara are most recognizable for their affinity for color and texture throughout their paintings, as well as the way in which they paint. Between Riley Holloway and Tim Okamura they share a likeness for touching on cultural issues and highlighting historically left out people in their portraits. Dan Lam and Sergio Garcia are the most recognizably different, but it is their process, techniques and materials that share similarities. These are clearly different artists but to see their work together heightens the viewer’s awareness of distinctions between the works.

Artists include: Lauren Childs, Sergio Garcia, Alonsa Guevara, Riley Holloway, Dan Lam and Tim Okamura.
