C. Parker Gallery’s “got game” this month with their Ready Player One Exhibit that kicks off Thursday, September 15 with an opening reception. From 6:30pm to 8:30pm at 409 Greenwich Avenue, the reception features a special meet and greet with sports card artist Steve Lacy.
Through October 6 they are bringing all the players in for this exhibit including their artists, their collectors and their great art.
“Summer is over, but the fun doesn’t have to end,” said C. Parker Gallery owner Tiffany Benincasa. “This engaging exhibit will celebrate the enduring influence of games and sports on our lives through our artists’ playful takes on sports legends, board games and more.”
Embrace your inner child with pieces like Steve Lacy’s presentation of NBA, NFL and MLB stars’ vintage rookie cards, featuring all-time juggernauts like Michael Jordan, Lawrence Taylor, Mickey Mantle, Wayne Gretzky and LeBron James. Gavin Sewell’s show-stopping game board collages harken back to classic family nights playing Monopoly and Clue; and Craig Alan delights with his iconic populous series depicting Rubik’s Cube and superheroes.
Pulling no punches, the late boxing legend and artist Muhammad Ali is highlighted with hand-signed prints of his most iconic artworks and autographed memorabilia. You’re never too old for Game Night, and, as always, C. Parker Gallery is bringing it to Greenwich in style!
There’s even more to the Ready Player One Exhibit as C. Parker Gallery “goes into overtime” and brings in a selection of collectibles such as signed jerseys and photographs of legends such as Kevin Durant, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Don’t miss out on a chance to own a piece of sports history.
Muhammad Ali said, “Champions are made from something they have deep inside them. A desire, a dream, a vision.” Athletes and artists share vision. They see the world differently from the rest of us; and they can show us their art on the field, court and diamond. Now C. Parker Gallery revisits some of the greats and their unique perspective and influence.
