There’s an interesting ‘salon’ style show hanging at the Tompkins Square Library called MENAGERIE: Creative ExPression of the Lower East Side 2009. It was curated by Shell Sheddy and will be hanging through October 30.

With 40 prolific artists participating, there is art everywhere! And– there are scheduled performance, poetry, and films every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Info will be on facebook.

Here are my 3 paintings in MENGERIE: Creative ExPressions of the Lower East Side 2009

Squash growing

July 29th, 2009 Lauren Edmond No comments

We consume a considerable amount of squash. So it’s not really surprising that a squash is growing out of our compost in the backyard. Yet, it is a miracle! I had wanted to make a vegetable bed in the backyard, but just didn’t have the time or resources to make it happen. And, I was busy planting paintings in the East Village this spring. A friend even gave me a packet of squash seeds. Miraculously, the squash that is growing is the same variety as the packet of seeds she gave me, though I never planted them! Yet, they are growing. Here’s the first in a series of growing squash.

6th BC Botanical Garden, spring 2009

July 22nd, 2009 Lauren Edmond No comments

my work goes through many phases. sometimes less is enough. and just seeing the paintings in all their forms can be fun.

so in that spirit, here’s the 6th BC Botanical garden in the spring of 2009. perhaps a work in progress, perhaps it is done!

the 6BC Botanical Garden is, of course, located on 6th Street between Avenues B&C, in the East Village, or Loisaida, or in the atlas, Tompkins Square, NY. The garden itself is a work of art, and the result of the work of many gardeners. Unlike the other community gardens where each gardener has their own plot, 6BC is one garden that all gardeners share. Here’s another painting from 6BC, in September of 2006,
