Two legendary NYC artists, Janette Beckman and Cey Adams, launch a new series of exhibitions at Gansevoort Market (52 Gansevoort Street, Meatpacking District) tomorrow night, December 9th, 7 to 9 p.m. The market opened in October with 25 food vendors including Ed's Lobster, Tacombi Tacos and others -- and now, to add to the mix, they're adding a rotating exhibit called "mARkeT Show" including photography, painting and sculpture by local artists. The opening features classic photos of hip-hop superstars by Janettte Beckman that have been mashed-up, remixed and altered by graffiti artists including Claw Money, Revolt, T-Kid 170, Sharp and others. Also on view will be several recent paintings by Cey Adams, the original creative director of Def Jam Recordings. If that's not enough to get you off the couch, Stretch Armstrong will be spinning records. See you there.
