Featuring over a dozen female artists from all over the world, the latest exhibit at Fuse Gallery (the showroom hidden behind Lit Lounge) was curated by none other than the East Village’s own David Hochbaum. When approached to organize a show at the space, Hochbaum did not have to look far to find folks to show great work.

Guild of the Black Eagle began in 2006 in Hochbaum’s studio (which doubles as a living space) as a coming together of artistic minds. A longtime resident of the neighborhood, Hochbaum was inspired by the art shows he remembers his father taking him to since age 8, and describes the opening reception experience as such – “not just a gathering but a mingling.”

The exhibition runs through July 5.
