Artist Spotlight: Justin Anselmi!

You may know Justin. He’s our everything guy, and is pretty awesome. Not only does he make mornings the greatest time of day with the prettiest lattes in town, but he also acts. Like we said, he kind of rocks. He is currently in a show with our neighbors at The Ivy Theatre Company, just over on 28th St, called The Feminism of a Soft Merlot  written by Micheline Auger, directed by Audrey Alford. Go see it and Justin will probably sign your program afterwards. Dreams do come true, see?

The company is dedicated to dynamic storytelling that explores the human condition in a visceral way, and is working with Funny… Sheesh Productions in a space sharing partnership to promote artistic union and collaboration within the New York City independent theatre scene.

Soft Merlot Flier (Ivy Theatre)

Sag Harbor OutPost Now Open!

Traveling to the Hamptons this summer? Oh, hey! We are too!

 

We are pourin’ love (and cold brew)  from 7 am to noon just inside Harlow East in Sag Harbor this summer.

 

The shop is right on the water, and the perfect spot to sit outside on the deck, read the paper, have a croissant and a coffee.

 

Look forward to seeing you!

 

Birch Loves You.

So far, it has made its way though Central Park, Grand Central, The Met Museum of Art, The Museum of Natural History, and a few other pretty awesome places around New York City.
Know that it may be a small cup, but has big dreams of travel, so stay tuned. There will be some exciting adventures in store.
Keep tabs on the whereabouts of this cup of love by following us on Instagram! All trips are documented under #travellingcupoflove and #wherewillthebirchcupgonext

Birch 2.0 Has Arrived!

Dear Friends,
 

We cannot thank you enough for your patience over the past couple of months while our flagship store under-went construction, and then moved a hop, skip and jump down the block. It has meant the world, and reminded us repeatedly of why it is we do what we do. YOU.

 

We are NOW OPEN at 21 East 27th Street. Please come visit us there. We can’t wait to see you, lookin’ all fancy in the new space. The new door is 65 steps east (toward Madison) of the old space. That black, posh looking part of the wall on the block? That’s us!

See you soon, friend.

 

Birch LOVES You.

June Artist in Residence: Matthew Pisani

Matthew Pisani is a painter, advertising art director and creator of MPISA.com. Often painting in a style he refers to as objectivism, Matthew bends paper clips into unique shapes and then incorporates the wire figures into his abstract art. Recently, he has begun exploring a painting approach inspired by the impressionism and realism movements.

With bold design and evocative colors, Matthew believes that successful pieces of art are those that connect with the audience and elicit an emotional response. No matter how subjective or individual the mind is, there are universal elements of humanity that unite each one of us. Art and creative pursuits are certainly among these unifying occurrences.

For more information, please visit: mattpisa.com.

March Artist In Residence Elyse Brandau

There are three things I am crazy about- 1.) Creating 2.) Comedy 3.) Carrots. Not really carrots, but I am fond of them.

My first portrait was when I was 4 years old. It was a unicorn with six legs. My passion for people and animals has transformed into one of a kind portraits since then. After years of studying privately, I am now celebrating those who have influenced our lives with my personalized rendition. More importantly, I am grateful to be able to do this. Thanks for swinging by!

- Elyse

October Artist Residency: Marni Wandner

Marni first remembers picking up a camera around age 13 – the result was a lot of black and white photos of cats and people’s feet.  She slowly continued to develop her love for the captured image and has learned a lot along the way. She thinks of photography as her way of collecting visual memories they way she sees them and she hopes to convey a certain sentiment through each finished piece.
Please join us October 9th, 7 – 9 pm for Marni’s art opening party.
