2018 art season kicks-off with the London Art Fair’s 30th Edition (17th – 21st January 2018)

From 17 – 21 January 2018, the London Art Fair will return for its 30th anniversary edition. Launching the international art calendar, the Fair offers exceptional modern and contemporary art from leading galleries around the world.

Exhibiting AWAD galleries include Anise Gallery (Stand G37), Contemporary Collective (Stand G33), The Cynthia Corbett Gallery (Stand 5), Decorazon Gallery (Stand G12), Joanna Bryant Projects (Stand P18B) and TAG Fine Arts.

In a celebration of female artistic talent at this special Fair edition, an all-female line-up is set for Dialogues. We’re delighted that AWAD Member Joanna Bryant is taking part in this guest-curated section of Art Projects that is intended to encourage and foster relationships on a global scale. This year’s exhibition is curated by Misal Adnan Yildiz and consists of five pairs of UK-based and international galleries presenting selected works by women artists, with a high percentage of Non-European participants which includes indigenous practices from Maori, Kurdish, Asian, and African origins.

Dialogues’ Curator Misal Adnan Yildiz says:

“Every year, Kunstkompass (Art Compass) releases an annual list ‘World’s Top 100 Artists’ based on the statistics of the frequency and prestige of exhibitions, publications, and press coverage, plus the median price of an artwork. The latest release from 2016 includes only 22 women as part of the 100 ‘great artists’. The 2016 results of the annual Art Price report states that the world art market profit is based on a balance of 41% European artists, 30% Chinese artists, 15% Americans artists and 15% other nationalities. What do these numbers tell us? We need to better understand how inequalities and opportunities are constructed in the art world.

As a response to the current dynamics of the art market, Dialogues 2018 presents only female and female identifying artists from a majority of non-European galleries.

This is not just a matter of positive discrimination. As an affirmative action, it is reverse discrimination.

Yes, the future is female.”

Susan Eley Fine Art announces winter exhibition – All Her Number’d Stars

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of All Her Number’d Stars: Paintings, Drawings and Sculptures by Jason Noushin. This is the first solo exhibition for the artist in New York City, following the success of his participation in SEFA’s group exhibition: Beyond the Ban: Contemporary Iranian Art. Noushin was born in England and raised in Iran. He lived in London before moving to the US in 1997, where he has since lived in Connecticut. Living a life seeped in multicultures informs his work, which reflects a play between the Middle East and the West and explores the intersection of seemingly disparate elements. Returning to the language of his childhood home, Noushin incorporates Persian calligraphy in many of his paintings and sculptures. Farsi transliterations of poetry written by British literary greats such as Keats, Hawthorne and Shelley, are drawn across his canvases and reflect a reconciliation of the cultures that have shaped him.

January 10 – February 22, 2018 | Opening Reception Wednesday, January 10, 6-8pm

The Wasp in the Garden at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Wasp in the Garden, Marilla Palmer’s third solo show with the gallery.

There is an inextricable connection between nature and the work of Marilla Palmer in inspiration, process, and concept. Her mixed media pieces blur the distinction between the organic and artifice, using dried foliage and scavenged detritus alongside synthetic materials to enrich rendered paintings of branches and flowers.

In Palmer’s studio, leaves and petals that have been gathered from her garden are pressed, wings are collected from dead insects, and mushrooms are gathered to make spore prints. These elements sneak into the work among drawn shadows of branches and watercolor florals, often nearly undetectable until after careful inspection. Then, Palmer brings a touch of glamour with lush fabrics, sequins, and glitter, adding a celebratory level of additional beauty.

Please see the companion exhibit The Hot House curated by Marilla Palmer.

On View January 4th – February 10th, 2018

The Hot House at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Hot House, a group show curated by Marilla Palmer.

 Marilla Palmer has curated The Hot House in conjunction with her show, The Wasp in the Garden also at KMFA. Complementing her exhibition of mixed media botanical works, this group of artists represents a range of ways art is used to study, celebrate, and engage with nature. Not only are they inspired by nature as a whole, specific elements of nature are brought into their studios to be photographed, rendered, or used as raw materials. This intimacy, admiration, and protectiveness of these pieces of nature is reflected in the work, whether through traditional drawings or contemporary abstraction.

On View January 4th – February 10th, 2018
