·         Indiewalls is changing the way people think about buying art. We are finding exhibition opportunities for local artists in high-end venues within New York City, and have created a platform from which it is easy to coordinate shows, browse through art currently in exhibition, and purchase the art safely. Currently we have 130 artists registered on the site with about 30 venues that are looking for a rotating collection of artworks. Every artist is selected by our curators through an application process and our venues as well are chosen according to our standards of quality and by the amount of foot traffic they receive. Every venue we work with has insurance, and we have insurance as well- so your work is protected. Shows last about 2 months each and nearly all of them are solo shows. This is a great opportunity to gain exposure and possibly business. Once you have a show, you are still eligible to have another. The exhibitions are determined by the venues themselves, and if they really like your work- you may have multiple solo shows in one year. We would love for you to register as a new artist onto and submit your best, original art. Everything must be able to hang on a wall. It can be 3-dimensional, however it is suggested that you don't submit anything too fragile and again only work that can be safely hung on a wall. Send any questions to or specific questions to sabrina wirth, curator at

Dissection and Lecture with David Klass

Dissection and lecture with David Klass at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, UMDNJ, 185 S. Orange Ave, Newark, NJ 07103. It is 12 mi from New York City. It is generally reached by taking the PATH train to Penn Station in Newark and then a Public Transit bus. It should take about 1-1/2 hrs.

Tuesday, March 20th, 12pm-4pm

There will be a body that has been skinned exclusively for Academy use by the schools mortician who has prepared a number of cadavers for us previously.

The body will be suspended vertically for the lecture and then left up for sketching and drawing. NO PHOTOS ARE PERMITTED! During the third sequence the body will be placed on a table and will be available for hands on dissection and probing. 

The donors are older people who have died in the hospital. They prefer to use older persons who have died of natural causes to insure there is no communicable disease. They have all been released by the mortician and are safe. Ideally a nice robust 40 or 50 year old person would be great, however that is not available. It is an amazing learning experience peering beneath the surface to see muscles, tendons, ligaments and other structures, to see what they really look like, not just to reinterpret an anatomy book, but to do your own observations.

A $50 deposit is due by Tuesday March 6th.  The final payment of $100 is due Tuesday March 13th.  Both payments should be submitted to Heidi Elbers – 212.966.0300 x971.  There are only 30 spots available.
