Vivienne Gucwa’s photography in a gallery showing at Plush NYC on October 6th 2011. Mars Bar Retrospective.  

Last night I got to attend a gallery showing event where seven of my photos along with photos from four other photographers were displayed. It was a Mars Bar Retrospective featuring photos of the interior, exterior and personalities that haunted this legendary and now closed bar in the East Village. The gallery showing was hosted by Plush NYC who also handled all of the planning, promoting and curation. It was a spectacular night and I am pretty sure I couldn’t stop smiling the entire time I was there. I am extremely grateful for Plush NYC who not only found me and contacted me about doing this showing but also for putting together a wonderfully curated and inspiring gallery event. 

If you are interested in seeing quite a few photos of me smiling like crazy in front of my photos last night as well as the seven photos that were on display, go here:

I have written many times about Mars Bar and what its closing meant to many people. The upset over its closing represented the loss of something greater for lower Manhattan. You can read an article I wrote about Mars Bar last winter which features (more journalistic style) photos along with all of my thoughts about its closing here: A Look Inside Mars Bar - the EV’s Legendary Dive Bar . I also did a photo-essay for the NY Times - East Village section about the art of Mars Bar which you can view here: Viewfinder | The Art of Mars Bar.
