Thursday-Sunday, May 14th-17th, Flux Art Fair at the Corn Exchange Building,  81 East 125th Street, just west of Park Avenue, Tickets start at $20 for one day.  The first event at the newly restored Corn Exchange Building will be the Flux Art Fair which will feature 60 artists on the lower two floors of the landmark building.  Visitors will get to have a glimpse within for the first time in over 30 years and see the work of local and international artists who explore the theme of "The 21st Century Artist is a Nomad.”

Three-dimensional canvases of Harlem based artist LeRone Wilson who uses wax mixed with pigments to create a dialogue with organic forms in two dimensions will be one of the outstanding works shown at the new exhibit.  For the Corn Exchange show, Mr. Wilson decided to go with an all black theme to his work and explains that the tactile pieces are very much representative of the migration that happened decades ago or the one that is happening currently with the art and cultural communities in Harlem.  Bees in nature are migratory and wax is also a by product that builds structure within their communities.

An opening event happens tonight for the exhibit but the public can walk through the space starting tomorrow until the show ends on this Sunday.  Make sure to drop by and support the local art movement along with getting a glimpse of the glorious revival of the Corn Exchange building.  More details and ticket pricing on the official Art Flux site:  LINK
