‘In Situ: New Oxford Interiors’ is a completely new body of work by the acclaimed artist featuring representations of Oxford interiors from Blenheim Palace, Sheldonian Theatre, the Ashmolean, among others.
The Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington, MD is pleased to present the two person show, In This Moment, featuring the works of artists Anne C. Smith and Christina Tenaglia. The show runs through June 4th, 2017.
Night holds a special fascination for Anne Smith. She combines the intense black of charcoal with delicate lines of graphite in her drawings inspired by memory and landscape. Her art is beautifully deliberate; a glimpse into another world. With elegant lines, Anne creates an awareness of spatial relationships. Her work suggests a vastness with the quietude and stillness of night. Hints of form or space inspire questions and observations about the visual language of minimalism and abstraction.
Christina Tenaglia’s sculptures are in a continual state of doing and undoing, arriving at a perfect moment of repose. Using mostly wood and paint, each sculpture is carefully constructed and inspires a playful exploration of its parts. They are fragments, passing thoughts, rigorous, but also full of wonder. Christina’s works on paper are simple gestures and expansive thoughts, suggestive of architecture and landscape. Using pen and ink and bits of collage, she creates compositions that are both abstract and recognizable, full of whimsical and curious details.

About Mauricio Vergara
A Rioplatense poet ponders:
Where is my life that which it could have been, and it never was?
As he does, I ask myself, who I am? Where is my life? Where is the person who I once was? Where are those who are not anymore? Where will I be? Who will I be?
Time changes us, but there is something that always remains. We leave what we were; we look at the past, and we don´t recognize ourselves. But, we are them, changed by our deaths and our lost illusions that will keep us changing.
Mauricio’s characters without face and body want to be an invitation to the spectator to make these questions theirs and to encourage them to participate in finishing the paintings.
Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present their spring show FOUND IN TRANSLATION a two-person exhibition featuring new paintings by Franco-British artist Sarah Picon, and paintings by Los Angeles based artist Chase Langford.
This is Sarah Picon’s second solo show at the gallery. Her intimate still lifes, portraits and landscapes evoke European Modernism in its many artistic styles and movements, glimpsed through a contemporary lens. In the South Gallery, the grouping of more than a dozen paintings include small works in acrylic of fruit or flowers resting on tables, portraits of women in profile or in contemplation and seated at a table.
Chase Langford has been featured in two group exhibitions at SEFA and one solo exhibition. The selected abstract paintings in the North Gallery are drawn from his Morphic series of biomorphic and organic forms, and his Del Mar series, featuring a more linear style, suggesting striations or waterways. As we look at Langford’s paintings, a funny thing happens to the mind. We recall birds eye views of landscapes glimpsed from airplanes. But seen from a different vantage point, we could be looking into a cross section of a magnificent rock or gemstone.
The exhibition is from April 20-June 1, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 20, 6-8 PM.
CHASE LANGFORD, DEL MAR 20 (2017), OIL ON CANVAS, 36 X 60 INCHES
‘s paintings have a kinetic energy perfectly fitting her exploration of turbulence, gesture, and the movement and folds of space. Her undulating stripes, dimensional layers, and selective use of reflective paint transforms a two-dimensional surface into a churning, vibrating composition. The dynamic nature of her pieces even suggest environments beyond the picture plane itself, her marks seemingly extending around and beyond the edges of her paintings.
Anderson’s work is a playful investigation of figure-ground and the relationship between positive and negative space. Her paintings, an example Spatial Redux, featured above, are hypnotizing, shifting from meditative tranquility to roiling chaos and back again. Exhibition runs through May 6th.
