Having a fabulous time shopping at Bryant Park but your husband, boyfriend, or teenage son keeps disappearing? Good bet that he is hanging out at the Metal Park shop.
While most of us see old engine parts and scrap metal as junk, the artisans at Metal Park see the beginnings of recycled metal art. Arc welding this "junk" piece by piece, Metal Park creates futuristic, one-of-a-kind statues that pay homage to our favorite sci-fi thrillers such as Terminator, Alien, and Star Wars. This season, don’t miss the “life sized” C-3P0 and R2-D2 robots.
Vintage revival is having a moment, and the curators at Dekco art gallery have left no sepia-tone movie poster, grainy iconic photograph or wartime memorabilia unturned.
To deck your home out in vintage, Dekco offers everything from fashionably faded posters on canvas to antique tin advertisements dating back to the 50s and 60s. Surround yourself with friends from another era – Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth, Marilyn Monroe...
If modern art isn’t your style, take a page from the book of decorators past and add some vintage charm to your halls with Dekco.
Drift off into a New York state of mind with the dreamy acrylic masterpieces of Paintings by Yvoni.
Step into Yvoni’s gallery shop and feel yourself transported to a world of downtown glamour, where haunting hues of red, black and yellow give a glow to city scenes featuring wispy silhouettes and soaring skylines. Yvoni’s paintings capture the distinct dichotomy of warmth and darkness that only the streets of New York can convey.
Each piece is hand painted by the artist in her East Village studio, so the one you choose will be as original as the city it embodies.
Want to bring a bit of urban edge to your home, but feeling a little hesitant about the spray paint? Brooklyn-based, Buenos Aires-native artist Mariano Pilatti creates street art-inspired pieces that are the perfect balance of gritty and glamorous.
Searching high and low for artwork to transform your living space? Why, it’s Elementem, my dear Watson.
Elementem Art & Design creates large scale triptychs -- a work of art or photography divided into three panels -- that will bring the beauty and splendor of the natural world right into your home or office. These vinyl prints mounted on wood will “stand out at you” -- the phrase “you’re literally there” is repeated over and over by Elementem’s fans. Our favorites include Sunset on the Baltic Sea, Cherry Blossoms, and Antelope Cave, Utah.
“Once my hands were muddy, I was hooked,” explains Holiday Shops potter Cathie Miranda.
The “Potterylady” joined Bryant Park last season, traveling up from her hometown of Luray, Virginia armed with her unique array of handmade clay wares. From sweet clay holiday ornaments to ingenious kitchen accessories (sponge-holders, anyone?) to handsome clay pots, the Potterylady’s collection doesn’t fail to delight.
Cathie Miranda is all about working from scratch – she even hand-mixes her own pottery glazes to ensure that each piece is 100% original.
