Locust vs. Loc Ness Press

If you're in NY or visiting NY this is the thing to do:

What is LOCULIS?

LOCULIS is Mike Newton’s curation of the curators.

An artist, critic and art devotee, Mike takes a direct, engaged,
sometimes eccentric approach to art-viewing, and LOCULIS is his
invitation to join him.

Every Saturday at 11:00 AM, Mike gives an intimate tour of NYC’s
contemporary art galleries.

He curates a selection of galleries to visit, provides background
material and information on the exhibits, and initiates discussion
about the work.

Not only a great introduction to NYC's (sometimes daunting)
contemporary art scene, Mike’s tours also provide a unique way to see
some of the best art in the city.

Tours are generally limited to around 12 people, but don’t hesitate to
write about availability. The cost is $20 per person.

If you’d like to come on a tour, you can email Mike at

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. The fall
tours begin this Saturday, Sept. 22.

For an on-the-ground report from a LOCULIS tour, read Steven Karl’s
