Advance Warning

Usually when Serena makes a fool of herself in public, it's a spontaneous thing. You either happen to be there, to laugh and point fingers, or you don't. This time, she's giving you the heads up.

The Brooklyn Artists Gym is throwing a Grand Re-Opening Party this Saturday, March 18 from 6-9 PM, in their new digs at 168 7th St. below 3rd Avenue, in Gowanus/Park Slope. The new space is bigger and better and features floating walls and a rotating exhibition space. As always, you can rent shared studio and locker space for a heck of a price, giving you instant community and peers, with whom to share inspiration and competition. If you are as lazy as I am, this is a big plus.

At the party, Serena will be doing a re-cap of her Spontaneous Auctioneer Act, where she stands in front of a pack of people and spouts idiotic stream-of-consciousness hyperbole about art. This works better if she's had a couple of glasses of wine beforehand, so Peter is thoughtfully providing food, booze and live music. Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will, of course, be in attendance.

So Come On Down. It will, I guarantee you, be fun.
