Bottleneck Gallery’s When The Lights Go Out!

 Bottleneck Gallery’s When The Lights Go Out!

Oh so many nights did I sit in my room as a young’un trying to charge my glow in the dark posters. I even went as far as stealing my parents’ camera to use the flash to get them to charge faster for this impatient kid.

Bottleneck has gathered nearly 60 artists for a show that’s guaranteed to make your soul glow. You won’t need camera flashes or extreme patience to take full advantage of the artwork as the gallery will have black lights simulating the glow in the dark effect! As if that wasn’t enough, there will be glow sticks and other sorts of fun glowee things.

I will say seeing some of the sneak peeks from the artists like Godmachine, Dave Perillo and Raid71, I am floored at the amazing work that has gone into this show. I can’t wait to see them all but from I’ve seen so far, I’ll need to steal my parents’ camera again to get that glow going as fast as possible!

The show starts this Friday, April 12th  2013 @ 7PM Eastern and will end May 1st. Opening Reception: Friday, April 12th 7pm – 10pm , General Online Sale: Saturday, April 13th 12pm eastern


Bottlenecks 8th gallery will be using glow in the dark inks, over 60 artists will be submitting pieces that cover a wide variety of topics and of course Portion of the Proceeds will go to Make a Wish. To this day they are closing in on the $5,500 donation range.

Located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, Bottleneck Gallery is a contemporary art space founded by Joe Bouganim, Josh Harris and Arseny Libon.

The gallery’s main focus is to support all emerging and established artists and to bring them exposure in New York City. In turn, we will be donating a portion of all proceeds from our solo and group exhibitions to a variety of charities.
