Cinders Gallery

I made it over to Cinders Gallery in Williamsburg just a few days before the end of the Andes show, and it was a very  pleasant surprise!  A few blocks off bustling Bedford St, Cinders’ quiet location on a tree-lined street is definitely one of its many charms.  Andes is a collaboration between two artists (and friends) from Santiago, Chile: Elisita Punto and Blok.

Overall the show was very graphic and lively, but while Blok’s figurative work had a primitive feel, Punto’s was modern yet equally playful.  What made the show really stand out was the unique way the art was incorporated into the space creating a surreal effect of art jumping off paper and onto the surrounding walls.  The one caveat is that I had a hard time imagining the pieces individually in the context of someone’s home.

Beyond the gallery, Cinders also has a section devoted to books and zines as well as a little shop with prints and artsy accessories.  The fun mix of gallery and shop makes the space feel very welcoming and interactive!

Below are photos from Cinders of the Andes show:
