The management team at The Factory have generously donated this space for us to host art exhibitions throughout the year. Built in 1926 and originally used by Macy’s as a warehouse and furniture showroom, The LIC Arts Open Gallery at The Factory is housed within a 1.1 million square-foot building at the geographic midpoint of New York City – just across the East River from Manhattan in Long Island City, Queens.

Current Exhibition:

“A being of anomalous or uncertain aspect or nature, one that is the servile dependent or tool of another” Wikipedia

My story:
“Most of my followers find my art dark and depressing so they suggested me to take a break and stay away from it so that may help improve my style or refresh my brain with flowers, gardens, cats, dogs or snakes etc. which I did.
I’m back to my studio to work harder than ever, and now my followers find my art more depressing, black, bleak, discouraging, gloomy, daunting, hopeless, dismal, melancholy and more heartbreaking than before!…I think I’m getting better!.”
J. F. Bautista
