Designed by Westbeth in house architect, Carl Stein (of Elemental Architecture NYC), using recycled IPE wood decking salvaged by Westbeth Management and built by Westbeth filmmaker and carpenter, Richard Sanca.
The project was funded by Westbeth Beautification Committee, Westbeth Board of Directors, and Martha Graham Dance Company.
The project exemplifies Westbeth’s dedication to “adaptive re-use.”
Conventional wisdom holds that the bonanza of New York summer shows is little more than a sleepy pause before the fall season kicks into gear. But it’s also a terrific time to scout group exhibitions for the lesser-known talent on the cusp of wider recognition—artists who will, with any justice, soon be given their own solo-show spotlight in the city.
But don’t despair if you’ve been hiding out at the beach for the past two months: we’ve done the hard work for you. Below, we take a look at 12 discoveries—including a painter of video game aesthetics, a photographer of Elvis impersonators, and a sculptor inspired by seaweed—that the art world will be buzzing about before long.

One Planet One Future is artist Anne de Carbuccias ongoing project using photography, videos, and conferences to create images of cultural and spiritual relevance that powerfully depict what we have and what we may lose. Climate change is decimating the habitats of Earth’s most beautiful and majestic creatures. The time to act is now. One Planet One Future aims to document the Earth’s beauty and frailty, and inspire sustainable behaviors and habitats.
Anne de Carbuccia’s photographs are taken on location and are both an homage to their subjects—water, disappearing environments, endangered species and cultures—and a hard examination of the often ruinous effects of pollution and war. They record what is fast disappearing for future generations while serving as a plea to reimagine a new world.
