The Barnstormers (Juxtapoz #107) are descending upon New York City for a massive group exhibition. The group formed in 1999 after a pilgrimage of twenty-five artists to the rural town of Cameron, North Carolina, where they painted barns, tractor-trailers, shacks, and farm equipment, and continue to return to paint new murals.

Artist Dennis McNett generously donated four prints for the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Art Auction, with proceeds doing to the Power House Project of Detroit. His most recent works, currently on display at Space 1026 in Philadelphia are a psychedelic take on mythology, centering around his signature Wolfbat.

The Swimming Cities of Serenissima is a fleet of three intricately hand-crafted vessels that will navigate the Adriatic Sea from Slovenia to Venice, Italy this May to crash the Venice Biennale. Two of the vessels navigated the Hudson river in 2008 and the project is descended from the Miss Rockaway Armada, which navigated the Mississippi River on junk rafts in 2006 and 2007. The vessels are made of found materials and run on recycled car engines and biodiesel. In order to provide continued funding for this incredible project, a benefit exhibition hosted by Glowlab will take place in New York City during Armory Show week, March 5 – 8, 2009. Participating artists include Swoon, Maya Hayuk, The London Police, Martha Cooper, Monica Canilao, Dennis McNett, Imminent Disaster, Eric White, Tod Seelie, Molly Crabapple, C. Damage, Elbow Toe and many more. This is an event anyone even close to the East Coast should try to swim out for, as The Swimming Cities will be sailing away soon after.

The Swimming Cities of Serenissima is a fleet of three intricately hand crafted vessels that will navigate the Adriatic Sea from the Karst region of Slovenia to Venice, Italy in May of 2009. Designed by the visual artist SWOON, the floating sculptures are descendants of the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea (Hudson River, 2008) and the Miss Rockaway Armada (Mississippi River, 2006 and 2007). SWOON's boats are inspired by dense urban cityscapes and thickly intertwined mangrove swamps from her Florida youth. The Swimming Cities of Serenissima are built from salvaged materials, including modified Mercedes car motors with long-tail propellers. The boats' crew is made up of 30 collaborating artists from the United States. In order to provide continued funding for this incredible project, a benefit exhibition hosted by Glowlab will take place in New York City during Armory Show week, March 5 – 8, 2009. Participating artists include Swoon, Maya Hayuk, The London Police, Martha Cooper, Monica Canilao, Dennis McNett, Imminent Disaster, Eric White, Tod Seelie, Molly Crabapple, C. Damage, Elbow Toe and many more. This is an event anyone even close to the East Coast should try to swim out for, as The Swimming Cities will be sailing away soon after. If you can’t make it out, Todd Chandler shot a film called FLOOD aboard the vessels of the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea, which is currently in post-production. Peep a teaser clip from the film below and then snag more info on the project at swimmingcities.org

Everyone has a soft spot for furry creatures (and even some not so furry ones) so you’ll want to listen up when we tell you about a new show coming to New York’s Fuse Gallery. Titled ANIMALANIA, this is a show curated by photographer Aliya Naumoff, who has brought together a group of artists working in a range of disciplines from photography to sculpture with one common bond – a love of animals. Andy Kehoe, Ricky Powell (work shown above), Dennis Mcnett, Nick Zinner, Kenzo Minami, Danielle Levitt, Tim Barber (work below), Adam Wallacavage, Jeaneen Lund, Gordon Hull, AJ Fosik, Kenneth Cappello, Spike Jonze, Meryl Smith, Kristen Schaal, Hisham Bharoocha, Benjamin Bertocci, Scott Campbell, Derek Watson, Karen O, Robin Schwartz, and Ryan McGinley will all have works in this show. As if this great line-up weren’t reason enough to head over to Fuse, you should be happy to hear that all of the proceeds will go to benefit the ASPCA to help treat and care for animals in need. ANIMALANIA will open next Wednesday, February 18th, with a reception from 7 to 10 pm and remain on view thru March 14, 2009. More info at www.fusegallerynyc.com
