New York City’s art community has long depended on Tekserve to provide the tools needed to explore the creative process – and Tekserve has always supported artists in their endeavors. Join us for a series of exhibitions featuring a diverse range of styles, mediums and artists, hosted at our store in Chelsea.
Art@Tekserve presents: See Something, an installation celebrating uncommissioned art in the subway, created by Tekserve employee Jowy Romano.
Over the past four years of publishing Subway Art Blog Jowy has discovered a wealth of art in an unlikely place: the NYC subway. See Something aims to open the eyes of commuters to this underground "sub-culture" that has been right in front of them all along.
See Something features the art of A City of Children, Jilly Ballistic, Moustache Man and Poster Boy; photographs by Jowy Romano and Rob Hazel; and MetroCard sculptures by Thomas McKean.

The Dead Laptop Series & Other Artifacts of the Recent Present
First NYC Showing By Michael Dinges
BE THERE NOW: A 2-minute tour through the Art@Tekserve exhibition of The Dead Laptop Series by Michael Dinges.
In November 2011, The LowerEastSide Girls Club visited our show of the DEAD LAPTOP SERIES by artist Michael Dinges. Here is a glimpse of what they saw:
"Michael Dinges investigates everything from the second law of thermodynamics to consumer waste in his unique adaptations of scrimshaw. His canvas of choice tends towards objects and materials that we have, metaphorically or actually, consigned to the waste heap. The marks he makes on these objects force us to reconsider what we used them for in the first place and whether they're now devoid of value. Do they disappear just because we threw them away?" --Keith Recker, Hand/Eye Magazine
Many More to Come
Stay tuned for more upcoming exhibitions.
