Hooray for the dreamers - the luckless and the odd balls. The old-timers, life-timers, the ground-breakers and the
pioneers. Hey ho to the subway performers toiling away night and day and all those who paint their passion on
the streets. Not on TV, not profiled in a magazine maybe, not famous - don't care.

Dreams can be big or small - we do what we can to fulfill them. Failure is not in it - not worth thinking about. Do
what you love money and the money will follow? Nah - more likely dreams cost money and consume all your free
time - everything. But it matters not if you're living a life that is fulfilling in some way every day. This show is a
celebration of Living the Dream.

About the curator: Matt was one of the founding partners of the Riviera Gallery in Williamsburg Brooklyn 2003
- 2008. Originally from NZ, Matt moved to NYC in 1994 after 4 years in Tokyo where he designed, drew or painted
on everything he could get his hands on. Although now mostly living in NZ Matt has kept close ties to NYC where
he returns often for work art and play. For this show he has put together a collection of his favorite dreamers to
represent a theme that is close to his heart.
