Hello,

My name is Heather (also) and I work at Luxeye Optical. We are located on Bedford and North 7th St and just opened a second location on Bedford and South 1st Street. As part of our grand opening celebration we’re trying to get local artists to show their eyewear related artwork. Would you be able to post our call for entries on your blog?? It would be much appreciated!! We currently serve so many local talents and want to increase our involvement with the Williamsburg art community. Hope you can help!!

Here you go, Heather!

CALL FOR ENTRIES: Luxeye Optical Grand Opening Art Show
WHERE: 291 Bedford Ave @ S. 1st St in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.
EVENT DATE: Friday March 25th, 2011 5-9pm

ENTRY DEADLINE:
March 15th, 2011

Show your art in Williamsburg!! Do you have artwork that incorporates eyewear? Either the subject is wearing eyewear or you’ve used optical related materials in your piece? Luxeye Optical is looking for all different mediums—photography, painting, drawings, or sculpture and installation pieces.  The show will be held in congruence with our Grand Opening celebration. The event will be catered and have a DJ and a photographer on site taking pictures of our clients and models in eyewear.  Invited guest will include local Williamsburg residents as well as some optical industry people—who may be looking for commercial artwork to use in their campaigns. Luxeye Optical hopes to promote the artistic community we thrive in and bring together individuals in the name of stylish eyewear, art and fun!

Those of you who are interested in submitting images of your work can do so one of two ways: via email at luxeye1 (at) gmail (dot) com or you send a CD via snail mail to Luxeye Optical 291 Bedford Ave in Brooklyn, NY 11211. NOTE: the latter will not be returned.

Hey, take my picture!: East NY Brooklyn

Chris Arnade writes (about taking the above photograph):

Was in the middle of Pitkan ave early Sunday morning trying to take a picture of a Bodega when this man honked for me.

What an outfit, and what a smile. I only wish I had asked him to pose out of the car.
