    What a great feat was it to witness the art wave in New York expanding in a classy direction. This time the move grew from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Pierogi is no stranger to the art wave of New York. This wave emerged and took grip in Brooklyn and now is decorating its interiors in Manhattan.

    Fostering, nurturing and empowering artists is all that personifies the art works of Pierogi. Diversity with empowerment is what defines Pierogi at best. With diversity we don’t just mean the artists but also art and its variety of mediums. It was just soothing to see so many different elements expressed in a platonic way on a single platform- the co-existence was never more enthralling.

    Sometimes, as artists we get so engrossed in our art forms that we forget to celebrate the multiplicity of the art itself. There are different routes adopted by each artist to share the whirlwind of world that exists in him/her and therefore the expanse of expression must not come at the expense of art. With that I mean- not only should we increase the size of our portfolios but we should also include and welcome more diverse art ideas to give this city the momentum it deserves.

    The surreal blend of artworks at Pierogi was showcased with grandeur and fervor. Generally speaking- the artworks were eye catching, thought provoking and diversified. While the few show stoppers for me were Darina Karpov’s “Luxe et Volupte,” Michael Ballou’s Masks and Patrick Jacob’s “Double Stump with Rutgill’s Mushrooms”. These were the spots where you could see art lovers with their cameras and cellphones fully engrossed in the presentation of their magnetic depth.

    Neat, dedicated and revered. The jam packed house of Pierogi was a testament of their patronage and the art wave they have lived to celebrate and authenticate- irrespective of the artist’s career phase or style. Ingenuity is their common ground. Truthfulness of expression dominated this showcase wrapped in Pierogi’s innocence to embrace it all.

    It was a mark of respect and dignity of fine arts. Here is the incubator of the New York Art Movement. Their role is distinguished and their appeal is vast. Their Suffolk endeavor is another feather in their cap. They host, they capture and they cross your heart.

    Keep bringing in more. Till next time.

    Check Pierogi out.
