Libby & PhoebeNewYork featured at Delmonico’s 151st Anniversary Ladies POWER Lunch

Bella NYC Magazine had the scoop on PhoebeNewYork's appearance at Delmonico’s 151st Anniversary Ladies POWER Lunch, where Libby herself was a Guest Speaker:

Every year Delmonico's opens its doors to the women of New York City for their annual Ladies’ Power Lunch, celebrating the date in 1868 when the restaurant first served women independently from men... The theme of the event was rebels, which was apparent with Libby Schoettle of Phoebe New York's REBELS artwork strewn about the building, as well as rebellious female icons come to life who greeted guests upon arrival.

Thanks again to Bella NYC Magazine for covering the event! Read more about the event here:

Joab Jackson reviews PhoebeNewYork

New Yorker Joab Jackson shared some wonderful musings about PhoebeNewYork this month:

For Manhattanites, Phoebe might seem to be everywhere, like a relentless but affable socialite. Her stuck-on visage -- round, largely inscrutable, and seemingly hastily applied -- is oft accompanied with a few words of inspiration, or exasperation. She is pasted to building walls, or lampposts, and wherever stickers and slaps from the underground are publicly planted. From this style alone, locals know her, even if though don't consciously recognize her.

PhoebeNewYork Solo Show "Wall to Wall"

Join us at 212 Art Gallery to celebrate our newest solo show from NYC collage and street artist Libby Schoettle featuring her alter ego, PhoebeNewYork, on Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 6:00-9:30 pm.

“1 of 10 Rising Street Artists Who Are Taking the Art Form Beyond Banksy” - Naomi Rea, ArtNet, December 2017

“Wall to Wall” will celebrate the always vulnerable, yet strong PhoebeNewYork, while laying bare just how imperfect the life of a woman and an artist can be.

In this show, for the first time, PhoebeNewYork is clearly conjured from an alchemy of the artist’s intimate introspections and public persona. Some PhoebeNewYorks are comprised of passages of the artist’s as-of-yet unpublished manuscript, and many are on large-scale wood panels reminiscent of the most popular PhoebeNewYork street pieces.

PhoebeNewYork reveals so much about love, identity, woman-power, humor, self-confidence, isolation, and rebellion from societal norms through her distinctively raw, cut-out forms and their fashion, expressions, gestures, and the occasional inclusion of poignant words or phrases. PhoebeNewYork is a NYC street art mainstay: a character beloved for connecting with passersby and Instagram admirers as they relate to her experiences of feeling misunderstood, isolated, underestimated, and more.

“Her artwork often raises a playful eyebrow at the fashion industry while questioning beauty standards and feelings about love and gender.” – Mary Dellas, The Cut, February 2018

Please visit www.phoebenewyork.com and follow @PhoebeNewYork for additional information. Libby Schoettle and PhoebeNewYork star in a docuseries by Canobie Films, www.canobiefilms.org, and the final night of filming will take place at the art show.

212 Gallery is New York’s home for urban contemporary art.

PhoebeNewYork Street Art Comes to West Chester

New PhoebeNewYork murals have appeared in West Chester:

[Store owner] Greco said everybody loves PhoebeNewYork who was transplanted in West Chester.

“They’re just inspirational,” Greco said. “It puts a smile on people’s faces.

“It’s girl power and good for the boys to see, too.”

“It brings a sense of creativity to an ugly brick wall,” Greco said. “It brings color and life and art — everything West Chester strives to be.”

The murals are expected to hang through the end of August, though there are movements afoot to keep them up longer in concert with the Public Arts Commission. Visit G Shop Thrift and let them know you want to see more of PhoebeNewYork!

PhoebeNewYork Solo Show in Toronto

PhoebeNewYork is heading to Canada!

Phoebe is thrilled to be making the journey to Toronto for her first ever solo show in Canada.  Come visit Phoebe at pop-up Gallery 181 inside the studio of Danielle Nicholas Bryk (of HGTV) starting March 1st.

“I fell in love with Phoebe when I spotted her a few years ago in New York City.  She strikes such a powerful chord with a wide variety of people. She is at times political, at times empowered, at times broken-hearted and always endearing as she experiences the complexities of being a modern woman.   I am beyond excited to have a part in spreading the Phoebe love.”

See the show at Gallery 181 on Queen Street, March 1st through March 31st. The gallery is open Wednesdays through Saturdays after 6pm or by appointment at info@gallery181.ca.
