Transparent Studio: Jaret Vadera
3 January – 2 February 2012
Closing reception: 2 February, 6 – 9 pm

Jaret Vadera is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist originally from Toronto, Canada. He received his undergraduate education at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, the Cooper Union in New York, and his MFA from the Yale University School of Art. His work has been exhibited in a number of venues including: the Queens Museum of Art, New York; Thomas Erben, New York; Paved Art + New Media, Canada; The Travancore Palace, New Delhi, India; The Cultural Foundation of Corsica, France; and the New York Arab & South Asian Film Festival, New York. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Project Description
Jaret will be creating new artworks that will be determined and completed each day during his residency turning the space into an artist / alchemist’s lab, focusing more on the process rather than end result. Each new piece will be comprised of an array of mediums and will also include one-day collaborative projects with artists and non-artists alike. He will also project a new video created every week during the month on the gallery windows. The final installation will be an assemblage of all his creations throughout his residency.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 to 6 pm and Saturday 12 to 6, by appointment only. There will be an open studio evening with the artist on February 2 from 6 to 9 pm. The artist will be in attendance and the public is invited.
