The Universe in Color

March 2 - 31, 2013

(Photos from the opening night)

Grumpy Bert is super excited to share with you a special exhibition that is "literally" out of this world, a solo exhibition with renowned Astrophotographer Robert Gendler titled, The Universe in Color.  On display will be true color portraits of distant galaxies, nebulae, star systems and other wonders of the universe located many thousands or millions of light years away.

The exhibition will feature 22 large pieces, including The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) which was published in the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records as the largest image (in pixel dimensions) of a spiral Galaxy ever taken.  Also, the recently released image of the spiral galaxy, M106 will be displayed.

A Brooklyn native, Gendler is a physician in Connecticut.  In 2007 he received the "Hubble Prize" at the Advanced Imaging Conference in San Jose California.  He has written three books on astrophotography: "A Year in the Life of the Universe" (2006, Voyageur Press), "Capturing the Stars; Astrophotography by the Masters" (2009, Voyageur Press), and most recently "Treasures of the Southern Sky" (2011, Springer), coauthored with David Malin and Lars Christensen.

lost show jan 26 - feb 24 2013




(Opening night Photos)

We are all LOST, in the past and present sense. Whether we want to admit it or not. The universal state of being can apply to every aspect of our life from the abstract: Love, innocence, purpose, identity and home. To the concrete: family, friends, jobs, directions and objects.

On Saturday, January 26, 2013, please join Grumpy Bert and Lost Lit as we explore the theme of LOST with the Brooklyn community and beyond through photos and spoken stories.

We’ll begin the evening with an Open Mic style Reading where over 20 New York writers will share their interpretive stories of being LOST through poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction.

Afterwards we’ll have a reception honoring the photographers featured in the LOST photo show with the LOST writers. We’ll drink, eat, laugh and revel in being LOST together.

January 26 - February 24, 2013
