E.Y.E.'s Exhibit Wide Open at Black Cow Coffee Shop

March 8, 2007

A group of eight artists and a band of seven musicians, who call themselves E.Y.E., took over Croton’s Black Cow Coffee Shop on Saturday, March 3, 2007, for a live performance of mixed media. After all of the chairs, couches and tables were moved out of the coffee shop, the walls were covered with white paper, the artists got underway to the sounds of live free-form-jam-style music. And for two hours, the artists would take turns adding to each other’s work—all started with some basic shapes. “Along with the E.Y.E. artists were thirty to forty people who watched, listened and chatted over coffee,” said curator and coffee shop owner Michael Grant.

“They had a video monitor projecting the event from a hand held camera that a guy was walking around with, on one of the canvases while the artists were painting on it or not,” recounts Grant. Saying, “Everyone had a blast,” and that since it was “all in all a really cool event, it makes me want to do many more like it.”

Mr. Grant added that “the actual paintings they will be up for the month of March” and encourages those interested to visit the coffee shop, located next to Wachovia Bank at 51 Maple Street, Croton-on-Hudson, New York (map) and see them (the artwork) up close.
