Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky in conjunction with her exhibition of new paintings, BTW also at the gallery.

 The word “stack” has many meanings, like voluptuousness (stacked), worthiness (stack up), and exploding in anger (blow your stack). With today’s political divisions, the connotations lead quickly to “stacked against,” using power in a partisan way to force someone to do something or to tip the scales in favor of one side. We say: “The deck is stacked against me.” “The odds are stacked against you.” “The numbers are stacked against us.” Yet a position of insight and resistance can be reached by knowing how things are stacked up.

 Artists Joe Amrhein, Susan D’Amato, Torkwase Dyson, Ginny Casey, Deborah Dancy, James Esber, Valerie Hegarty, Nina Katchadourian (“What Did I Do?” image above), Joan Linder, Mary Lum, Thomas McArdle, Susan Meyer, Gina Occhiogrosso, Crit Streed, Craig Taylor and Heeseop Yoon combine and order things, and thereby acknowledge that no one element can tell the whole truth. The visibility of the parts within the whole identifies the importance of these smaller, multiple truths, offering us a glimpse of what was lost and gained in the process of assembling and condensing. The sum of the parts is both the sum and the parts, and the poignancy of that equation is beautifully realized in these works.

Show is ongoing and closes June 17.,
