Single Fare 3 Show

On February 13th, Jim and a slew of other artists had work featured in the Single Fare 3 show at RH Gallery in NYC. Jim and I attended the opening and afterwards went out and grabbed a bite to eat. It was a fun, weekday date night in the city.

Single Fare 3 is unique in that it’s an open call art show. The only real criteria is whatever artwork you submit has to you the NYC Metrocard as the basis for the piece. It’s a really interesting show concept and as a result this is their third year holding the show and several well established artists submit pieces.

At the opening, during the first hour pieces sell at $200. After, everything sells for $100. We arrived during the first hour and were surprised at how many pieces we already sold during the first choice hour.

There were thousands of entries and each and every one of them as unique as the other. People painted on the metro cards, made sculptures out of them, or re-purposed them. These are some of my favorite images from this fun evening out.

    I am bummed I wasn’t in NY for this. I loved the 3D sculpture Metro Card. All those little floating pieces on the wall felt fast-paced, impatient and chaotically organized, just like MTA.

      That’s exactly what it felt like! The crowd at the show helped emphasize that too. It was packed shoulder to shoulder just like a subway car during rush hour.
