Machine Age Velvet At Jack Geary Contemporary Gallery

Strolling along Varick street on the way to work today, we noticed giant pieces of Machine Age Velvet hanging at Jack Geary Contemporary, a spacious art gallery lined with windows only two blocks away from Pollack HQ...

As it turns out, the artist, Lina Puerta, got some materials for her artwork through Materials for the Arts, an organization that provides a way for companies (such as us!) as well as individuals to donate uneeded supplies to thousands of nonprofit organizations with arts programming and public schools, and chose Machine Age Velvet to include in one of her intricate works titled "Cascara (Peel)" within her exhibition Traces.

It's a complete coincidence that Lina's art, and our very own fabric, ended up two blocks away from our HQ in this great space. What a pleasant surprise!

Make sure to check out Lina Puerta's works, as well as a great review of this exhibit on Hyperallergic.

Thanks to Jack Geary of Jack Geary Contemporary.
