NEW YORK - April 15, 2016 - PRLog -- A Gem of a Fair in a Jewel of a Space ­ Fridge at Landmark Angel Orensanz Center

May 7­-9 ,2016, Opening reception Saturday, May 7, 2016

Fridge Art Fair and Angel Orensanz Center are pleased to present the Fridge New York 2016. In what founding director Eric Ginsburg dubs "The Big Freeze" Edition.  Fridgers return to the historic heart of the neighborhood where the Fair was born in May 2016 with a venue/producer collaboration that marries the current character of the Lower East Side as THE burgeoning art district downtown and it's history as a multicultural melting pot and a center of Jewish life.

Most exhibitors this time around are returnees to the small fair who enjoy the creative freedom Fridge provides in term of form and content, especially in a flexible space such as this. They range from artists such as recent Mana resident Johan Wahlstrom, and Miami's Virginia Erdie (who will once again also present works by her young students), and photographer David Graham, to innovative galleries and collectives such as Pittsburgh's BoxHeart Gallery, NYC's own Con Artist Collective, Vanderplas Gallery presenting work of Konstantin Bokov, and the home of the first Fridge Art Fair, Gallery OneTwentyEight presenting an installation by Kazuko Miyamoto and David Fenn.

A site­specific installation by Angel Orensanz will be featured on the main floor of the venue. other special presentations include a marathon opening vernissage (4­-11pm Saturday May 7, music, goodies and refreshments) poetry readings by Jeffrey Cyphers Wright and Jason Greendyk, Eric Ginsburg's Doggie Salon (bring your pet, portion of proceeds benefit BARC). All admission to Fridge is by suggested donation.

Angel Orensanz Foundation occupies a former​ Ashe Synagogue, a registered Historic Landmark that currently serves many functions including as a house of worship. It is the Oldest Synagogue in New York City and is often considered the birthplace of Reform Judaism. After the DOB closed the venue and forced the Fair to relocate in 2014, this edition, on the heels of the Center's re­opening, has deep meaning for the Fair. "It's not only the best location for us," says fair curator Linda DiGusta, "It has the best spirit."
