From the Press Release:

Life On Mars Gallery is proud to present a special artist talk with painter Brenda Goodman and the esteemed poet, author and critic John Yau at Life on Mars Gallery on Sunday, April 19th, the final day of her one-person exhibition here. 

Goodman's work is most recently also featured in the current Academy of Arts and Letters Invitational, for which she was one of five recipients of an Exceptional Accomplishment Award. She has received a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships. She has had 34 one-artist exhibitions at numerous galleries throughout the country, and her work has been exhibited in more than 170 group shows, most notably in New York City at The Whitney Biennale, The New Museum, Edward Thorp Gallery, Pamela Auchincloss Gallery, and throughout the US. 

John Yau has published books of poetry, fiction, and criticism. Recent publications include A Thing Among Things: The Art of Jasper Johns (D.A.P/Distributed Arts Publishers, 2008) and Exhibits (Letter Machine Editions, 2010). In 1999, he started Black Square Editions, a small press devoted to poetry, fiction, translation, and criticism. He was the Arts Editor for the Brooklyn Rail (2007-2011) before he began writing regularly for Hyperallergic Weekend.

We hope you will join us for this fascinating discussion and will contribute to a lively dialogue. And of course, there will be cookies. 

WHAT – Artist talk with Brenda Goodman and John Yau
WHEN – Sunday, April 19th, 2-4 pm 
WHERE – Life on Mars Gallery, 56 Bogart Street, Brooklyn, NY 
HOW TO GET HERE - L train to Morgan Ave., exit at Bogart St. 

*Important travel info for everyone coming to our Artist Talk this Sunday!:

We have just learned that there will be no subway service on the L line between 8th Avenue Manhattan and Lorimer St Brooklyn this weekend, April 18-19. This means people coming to Life on Mars Gallery from Manhattan will need an alternate route.

According to the MTA, the M line from Manhattan to Brooklyn will be running from 57th St and 6th Ave (F station) down to W. 4th and then across to Brooklyn (with stops at B'way-Layfayette and Delancey).

You can take this M to Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues/Myrtle Avenue where it connects to the L. (Note: there are 3 other Myrtle Ave stops before the Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues/Myrtle Avenue stop-- don't get off at them.)

You can then take the L back (towards Manhattan) 3 stops to Morgan which is right across from the gallery. (56 Bogart St.) will also supply other route options

If you are coming for the talk between Brenda and John Yau, which begins at 2 on Sunday, please allow a little extra time.
