Twenty-two contemporary artists were chosen to participate in Just Art 2010. The Exhibit is curated in four clusters of work, each representing one of four issues central to the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU)’s work in 2010: Censorship, Privacy and Surveillance, Immigration Reform and Reproductive Rights. Each artist created artwork speaking to one of these four issues. While the show is eclectic in media and style to please almost any visitor, each cluster is cohesive; held together by a common medium or theme.
We would like to express our incredible gratitude to the artists. Each artist has slashed their prices to help raise funds for the NYCLU’s worthy work. For many of the more prolific artists in the group, Just Art 2010 offers unparalleled deals.
The lion’s share of the pieces in the Exhibit are listed below with images. You can browse the Auction by style/medium or minimum bid prices. To make a bid, please add a comment to the specific posting. We will contact you by e-mail to collect payment information in case you win the bid. If you MUST have a specific artwork, you may buy it by bidding its listed Market Value. This will pull the piece out of the Auction and make it yours on midnight of June 24, 2010.

The artists come from all walks of life as well as from all over the world including Australia, United Kingdom, Paris, and throughout the United States. The show is not about how intricate, how many layers, or how much time it took these artists to cut each stencil but about showcasing the history, evolution, and future of stencil art. Paper Monster, the exhibits curator, has this to say about bringing the Friends With Knives to Crewest Gallery: “I chose to put these artists together for many different reasons. Some of the artists I have either been a fan of or have had the honor of showing with, collaborating, or meeting by chance in my life. As a whole we push each other and hopefully push the creativity of the stencil graffiti/art community. Being stencil artists we have a common bond and we know the hardships and struggles that come with the work that we do. The process of cutting stencils can be grueling and demanding. It is extremely difficult to gain respect and admiration for the huge amount of work and dedication that we put in our work from the art world but we are willing to do everything in our power to share our talent with the world. Many of us have been creating stencils for five to ten years and some of us are relatively unknown artists that deserve an opportunity to shine. My hope is that everyone in the show uses this opportunity to support their love and hopefully they will be leaders in the future as they continue to push stencil art further.”-PaperMonster
