Rockaway Artists Unframed at sTudio7
Photographs of Rockaway artists lined the walls of the Rockaway Artists Alliance’s gallery, sTudio 7, in Ft. Tilden, this weekend. The exhibit was a culmination of a year of work by Yuri Yurov, photographer and fine artist. Yurov photographed 145 Rockaway artists, musicians, actors and even a chef. His black and white portraits filled the gallery walls and immortalized the expansive art community which has grown, and keeps growing, in our community. The artists signed their portraits as well as Yurov’s shirt. There was music, food, drink and even some dancing. The exhibit has been recorded on dvd which was shown on a large screen throughout the night. Photos by Irina Smuglima and Robert F. Carter Photographer Yuri Y.
