Where to find AWAD Member Galleries During Armory Arts Week

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

The Association of Women Art Dealers members are a resilient and flexible lot. Those who were scheduled to show with VOLTA have each successfully landed at an alternative venue after the sudden cancellation of the art fair.

Susan Eley of Susan Eley Fine Art will be at Art on Paper. She had this to say about the experience:

“While I was incredibly disappointed, I do understand why MMPI made the choice to cancel VOLTA in order to keep ARMORY in tact. And in response, VOLTA has acted as well as they could have, professionally and with integrity. We were happy to secure a booth at Art on Paper. We participated there two years ago, so had the relationships in place and felt comfortable approaching them. It’s not essential to our gallery that we exhibit during ARMORY week. There has to be a fit for us. And luckily this has worked out.” Visit Susie at Booth Number 803.

Another gallery who found safe harbor at Art on Paper is Accola Griefen Fine Art. They are pleased that they were able to –

“Reroute to the Art on Paper fair where we will be featuring Renée Stout, with her drawings, prints and paintings and palm fiber sculptures, drawings and paintings by Merritt Johnson. Due to the change of venue we are also pleased to be able to offer new collage work by Gina Adams that relate to her Broken Treaty Quilt Series and recent works on paper by Judy Pfaff.” Visit them at Booth 907 on the Mezzanine Level.

Abigail Ogilvy Gallery was also displaced and found themselves a literal plan b. Abigail Ogilvy shared this about the experience –

“Entering our inaugural year at VOLTA we were incredibly disappointed to hear of the postponement, especially in regard to the hard work put in by both our artist and the Abigail Ogilvy team. When we received the email from Peter Hort in regard to a Plan B occurring at the Chelsea Galleries we jumped at the chance to join, and are thrilled to be among the 30 galleries participating at at VOLTA Plan B at 525 W 19th Street!”

Markel Fine Arts is also participating at Art on Paper.  They will be at Booth 116 showing Ky Anderson
Josettte Urso, Katie DeGroot, Joanne Freeman and Marilla Palner.

Two AWAD member galleries will participate in the Spring/Break Art Show. The theme this year is FACT AND FICTION’. In keeping with theme the fair is inhabiting an entire floor of 866 UN Plaza at 48th Street and 1st Avenue.

ODETTA Gallery will be in Suite #11, in the former Finnish Consulate offices presenting Facts: Alternate. Three activist artists David Borawski, Margaret Roleke, Rita Valley create works that push back against the lies and misrepresentations presented by the Trump administration further amplified by social media. 

  Abigail Ogilvy Gallery  will also be at this fair featuring the work of Lavaughan Jenkins in a solo booth.

 

 

Blanket Statements: Works by Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield & Marie Watt presented by Accola Griefen Fine Art and MINUS SPACE

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

Accola Griefen Fine Art and MINUS SPACE are pleased to present the three-woman exhibition Blanket Statements: Works by Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield & Marie Watt. This is the first collaborative project by the galleries and it will take place at MINUS SPACE’s location in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The show closes

Artists Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield, and Marie Watt are of indigenous decent and fabric plays a significant role in their respective practices. No other blanket statements can be made, however, about the work of these three individuals. Each has a unique approach to her materials, as well as the confluence of tradition and innovation. Adams, Hupfield, and Watt make work that resists simplified interpretation. Gina Adams draws upon cultural practices passed down from her ancestors, as well as a family history of forced assimilation. Her Broken Treaty Quilt Series consists of restructured antique quilts sewn with words from broken treaties between Native American tribes and the United States government. Similarly, Marie Watt’s work stems from history, biography, Iroquois proto-feminism, and indigenous principles. Her large format works are commonly made in sewing circles, public events in which fellowship and storytelling can be as important as the resulting object. Felt is a favored material of Maria Hupfield, “a maker, a mover, a connector, an Anishinaabe-kwe and a member of Wasauksing First Nation.” (Art in AmericaOctober 2017). Hupfield’s performance-based photographic works are disrupted by felt collages and address the issue of self-definition. The applied fabric acts as both as a shield and a screen, repelling consumption of the body and of nation, and resisting specificity and oversimplification.

AWAD at VOLTA NY 2018

Friday, March 30th, 2018

AWAD collaborated with Accola Griefen Fine Art, whose co-founders Kat Griefen and Kristen Accola are Founding Members of our NYC Chapter, for an event at this year’s VOLTA NY art fair.

The tour for members started with a viewing of the Maria Hupfield piece on the VOLTA video wall, followed by a stop at the Nancy Margolis Gallery to see oil on panel pieces by still life and figurative painter Aubrey Levinthal. Kat and Kristen then provided a talk and Q&A with the artist Judy Pfaff at their gallery’s stand. The tour concluded at the Kopeikin Gallery, where Katrin Korfmann gave insight into her bird’s eye view photographic pieces.

In mind of the pervading under-representation of female artists, yet with so much talent, we invite you to research these artists and follow their activities online. Name recognition, in combination with spreading the word to others, is key to propel women into the spotlight. As the saying goes, knowledge is power.
