Presented by Baxter & Co. Our Editors are off to galleries and museums this season to discover inspiration and creativity by exploring the arts and culture scene in New York City, where Conscious Magazine is based. To our Editors, art and photography is a form of storytelling that has the opportunity and the power to uplift the beauty in culture and to capture the realness of what’s happening around the world. Art also retells history, evokes conversations that we might not always think of, and is a gateway into the heart and soul of the artist. Along with Baxter & Co., an art brand created by the Founders of Conscious Magazine, we hope you will join us on our monthly art stops in New York City. Follow along / share your discoveries on Instagram with #ConsciousCulture



Patrick Hughes

Thrush Holmes
Heavy Painting
Mike Weiss Gallery
September 10 – October 17, 2015
Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am until 6 pm
520 W 24 NYC
As described by Mike Weiss Gallery: Heavy Painting is the third solo exhibition by Thrush Holmes with the gallery. Using diverse materials, which range from oil paint to neon to driveway sealer, to depict a variety of subject matter, Holmes brazenly undermines exclusionary high art motifs. In their place, he delivers a fresh, honest reduction of form and process that unsparingly unveils his own slapdash hand. The result is a psychedelic exhibition with a varying tempo – one that oscillates between brutish splatters of paint, poetic smears of color, and sophisticated glimmers of neon. Read more.

1109 5th Ave at 92nd St
New York, NY 10128
As described by the Jewish Museum: Revolution of the Eye: Modern Art and the Birth of American Television is the first exhibition to explore how avant-garde art influenced and shaped the look and content of network television in its formative years, from the late 1940s to the mid-1970s.

Roy Lichtenstein
Greene Street Mural
Gagosian Gallery
September 10 – October 17, 2015
1109 5th Ave at 92nd St
New York, NY 10128
As described by Gagosian Gallery: In Greene Street Mural, Lichtenstein layered pervasive images from his pop lexicon—marble-patterned composition notebooks, cartoonish brushstrokes, and Swiss cheese—with new motifs, including the Neo-Geo tropes of the Perfect/Imperfect paintings; faux woodblock shading patterns; and office items including filing cabinets, envelopes, and folding chairs. Echoing the self-reflexive and art-historical juxtapositions of the Artist’s Studio paintings made during the same period, the mural conflates citations from Lichtenstein’s own oeuvre with references to Picasso and Brancusi, Art Deco motifs, and depictions of the Great Pyramids. This heady mix epitomizes Lichtenstein’s ability to absorb anything and everything that caught his eye into his constantly evolving artistic idiom. Read more.
