ODETTA presents Mesmerize – a group show

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018
Color is a catalyst. Emotion, communication, and pleasure are but a few of the ways we map human characteristics onto color. Mesmerize is about the escape into color through playful, yet deeply considered means. ODETTA is pleased to offer the second of four color-focused exhibitions for 2018. The exhibition brings together four artists, Elizabeth Gourlay, Stephen Maine, Carol Salmanson, Audrey Stone whose paintings and LED light installations are both formally constructed and experimental. Color is their teacher. Communicating to us on multiple levels, the gallery invites you to enjoy their newest works, fresh out of the studio.
ODETTA’s featured flat file artists for this exhibition are Nancy Baker, Rob de Oude, Audrey Stone

The show runs from September 7th – 30th. The opening reception is on Friday September 7th 6 – 8pm.

Dataatadata: 3-sphere + Flat File Artists at ODETTA

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

ODETTA Gallery is pleased to share  Dataatadata: 3-sphere, is a sculptural installation and visual exploration of the universe and higher dimensional space — a minimalist artistic expression of profoundly complex concepts.  Touching on the idea of infinity and folded space, artists Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher employ materials using resin, acrylic, light and sound to create multi-dimensional references to form and space that seems both fluid and solid at the same time.

Their current series, Dataatadata, a play on Dadaism, centers on the beauty of information and the poetry of numbers, and how they can be used to express complex ideas in a visual and experiential way.

In addition to the sculptural installation in the main gallery, ODETTA will have works from artists Elizabeth Gourlay and Morgan O’Hara in their Flat Files and will hear about their process and conceptual development.

The exhibition is on-going through August 19th.  The Gallery will host an Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 29, 2018, at 3:00 pm with Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher and Flat File Artists Elizabeth Gourlay and Morgan O’Hara

 

 

ODETTA Gallery presents Curmudgeon

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

ODETTA Gallery feels that you can trust a curmudgeon. They’re some of their favorite people. Deep down, they’re tender-hearted. Gruff, stoic, humorous, and empathic. With pencil, sewn materials, kitsch, and word play the gallery’s curmudgeons explore unlikely materials to deliver their message. ODETTA hopes that visitors will come out and spend some time with their cranky artists and their work. You’ll more than likely share a laugh while taking in the view.

The exhibition features David Borawski, Carla Rae Johnson, and Rita Valley. As is their practice the gallery curates Flat Files. The featured artists are Patricia Dahlman and Gil Scullion.

The exhibition runs June 1 – July 1, 2018 with the opening reception on Friday, June 1, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 1, 3:00 pm  (Story Telling Performance with Suzanne Benton 4:30)
Special Event: Handwriting the Constitution- with Morgan O’Hara Sunday, June 17, 2-5 pm

ODETTA Gallery presents Fever Songs

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

ODETTA Gallery is pleased to present Fever Songs. Ecstatic song, meditation, blending, Fever Songs is an evocation for peace and harmony. Artists Meg Hitchcock and John Morton seek order in chaos, creating unity through shared expressions of faith freed from the constraints of organized religion.

Running concurrently with Fever Songs is Creative Tech Week. Artists that have been selected explore concepts in their art through digital media, gesture tracking, animations, open source coding, and graphics. Creative Tech Week is a city-wide symposium exhibiting the intersections of cutting edge technology and the arts. ODETTA has curated nine artists into their Studio area and Flat Files for this year’s Creative Tech Week theme, and to tie in with Fever Songs.

Creative Tech Week artists will transform the Flat File and Studio areas in back of ODETTA. Artists Jeff Becker, Ellen Hackl Fagan, Joshie Fishbein, Patrick Gallagher, Greg Garvey, Matti Havens, Chris Klapper, and Gregory Kramer will install video projections, LED installations, digital prints, and touch sensitive screens.

Special Events at the gallery include:

Concert: The Orangetown Resolution, Scott Colley and John Morton

Nancy Baker’s No Regrets at ODETTA Gallery

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

ODETTA is pleased to have artist Nancy Baker return to the gallery with No Regrets, a solo exhibition of new site specific work. For the exhibit Baker seizes upon current political anxiety that informs her series of works which employ text from the US Constitution, in addition to mathematical constructs such as Pi, and the Golden Section. Intermixed within her constructions are additional phrases which seek to undermine the authority of No Regrets, such as Fewer Answers, No Illusions, Some Ideas, and Little Idea How. In claiming a definitive confidence, there is for Baker, consequences of hubris which reflect a truly complex lifetime of shifting doubts.

ODETTA’s Flat Files are curated to tie in with every exhibition. Meg Atkinson, Richard Bottwin, Dana Kane, and Becca Lowry have created new works that bring viewers into a more intimate encounter with their work. Opening each drawer in the cabinet presents interactive site-specific installations on a micro-scale that offer an element of surprise with the breadth of dimensionality and innovation.  Richard Bottwin’s Bauhaus inspired wood constructions will be the Flat File Feature on the main wall in the studio.

Exhibit is ongoing until April 8th. There will be an Artist’s Talk on March 25th at 3:00pm.
