Baang & Burne


Baang & Burne is the brain child of artist Kesha Bruce and photographer Charlie Grosso. The concept behind B & B is a no-walls gallery travelling through cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Portland. This series of one-night-only art exhibitions will be held in private homes or hotel suites. The inaugural event is scheduled for September 26th in NYC and will feature Jane Zweibel in an exhibition entitled Stitched Identities.


Jane is a New York City based artist who will be exhibiting her "stuffed paintings." These are sewn, stuffed, and painted objects combining the worlds of sculpture and painting.


Although space will be limited at all these intimate events, invitations will be sent to everybody who signs up on their mailing list.

I would be worried that someone would use them as cushions. I wonder how they are displayed.

How in the world do you find out about these shows? :) Just looked at their sites and really like Jane's subway series. The first painting I selected to look at enlarged to my surprise was titled "lost and found"! Just love that! Interesting combination of design and incorporation of the 3-D material component!

That'll keep her in stitches for awhile! A little innovation, although handsewn cloth dolls have been around at least since Raggedy Ann & Andy. Kind of an interesting approach to exhibiting wouldn't you say?

I used to make art dolls in a previous life (when I had TIME) and so I can REALLY appreciate the time that went into these sculptures. I always used to hate "stuffing" the darn things...so boring...so hat's off to this lady! Also, just got really excited about your posting on NYC - if this gets turned into a book eventually (I do hope so) I would buy it in a flash!

Denver usually gets the big flyover, but it's worth a shot.

As someone who likes to combine fabric with paper, I find this exhibit exhilarating. Thanks for showing these.
