If you want to do an art crawl in Queens, this might be the Saturday to do it. Flux Factory, Homefront Gallery, and Local Project, all have gallery shows tomorrow. Plus as a bonus, our friends at Sorta Secret Comedy Group are doing a performance at an undisclosed location in Astoria. Art, Comedy; not a bad plan for Saturday night in Western Queens.
12 – 6 pm
The Typhoon Continues and So Do You
New works where artists contemplate four specific “artifacts” of war and how their original purposes are transformed through integration into larger society.

The Homefront Gallery
Breathing In by Rona Chang (Opening Reception):
A collection of photographs taken over the last ten years. This exhibition celebrates the publication of the book Breathing In, a collaboration with the poet Ann B. Knox. It highlights the images and words that emerged from “like ways of seeing” the world’s “patterns, strangeness and delights.”

Living Tissue by Sebastian Garcia Huidobro (Opening Reception):
Garcia has created a series of deformed digital portraits and other sculptures involving elements of water, light and fire. With a continued interest in re-working material, his pieces reflect on the relationship between humanity and its environment and simultaneously create a dialogue about the catastrophic events that have currently taken place worldwide.
