ODETTA presents Falling into Place

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Falling into Place with Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro.

Using gravity as a tool for their image making, these three artists works move us to consider more seriously the connection between abstraction and self-portrait. Through invented systems that nudge their materials along until their artwork makes itself, Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro playfully poke at the larger effects we all must endure as our planet spins. By attempting to harness the Earth and Moon’s magnetic pull, we see in these three a common personality emerge, artist/explorer, author and spectator.

Exhibition closes February 24th, 2019. Artists talk on Sunday February 17th at 3:00pm.

ODETTA’s FOUND OBJECT

Friday, January 18th, 2019
ODETTA is opening the new year with FOUND OBJECT.
The best found objects hold within them the thrill of discovery and instill wonder at their quirky beauty. Glimmering in a ditch or nearly obliterated on pounded pavement, these artists keep their cast-offs, raise them up and present them, for all to see what they would call beautiful. Through the dynamics of opposites: low, unwanted to exalted, transformed, artists Jo Confino, Diane Englander, Deanna Lee, Jane Sangerman, and Sylvia Schwartz see, a little more carefully, what shimmers and shines in world all around us, freely given.
Found Object is the fourth in a series of color-focused exhibitions held in 2018 – 19. ODETTA invited several artists, who would define themselves as colorists, to submit current portfolios for these shows. The exhibitions created from this call were Hot Stuff, January 2018, Mesmerize, September 2018, Las Gravitas, November/Dec 2018, and now Found Object. While color drives the artists to create, the subjects that emerge as narrative in their abstractions have a breadth that is breathtaking.
The Exhibition closes January 27, 2019.

ODETTA is pleased to present Las Gravitas

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Las Gravitas is final exhibition for ODETTA’s 2018 fall season. The weight of our country’s political schism is brought into view, both symbolically, as well as literally, in this four-person exhibition featuring Yvette Cohen, Lester Rapaport, Margaret Roleke, and Lydia Viscardi. 

The overriding social concerns of this era prompts a preoccupation with our mortality, but, in some cases, also demands a persistent need for escape, a release into the imagination.

There will be an Artist’s Talk and closing reception for the artists on Sunday, December 16, 2018, at 4:00 pm. The public is invited. Gallery hours are Friday thru Sunday 1-6 pm, and by appointment. Please check the gallery website for related events throughout the course of the exhibition.

 

 

Las Gravitas at ODETTA

Monday, November 12th, 2018

ODETTA is pleased to present Las Gravitas with Yvette Cohen, Lester Rapaport, Margaret Roleke, and Lydia Viscardi.

The weight of our country’s political schism is brought into view, both symbolically, as well as literally, in this four-person exhibition at ODETTA.

The overriding social concerns of this era prompts a preoccupation with our mortality, but, in some cases, also demands a persistent need for escape, a release into the imagination.

 Las Gravitas is the gallery’s final exhibition for the 2018 fall season. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday, November 16, 2018, from 6 – 8:00 pm and the public is invited. Gallery hours are Friday thru Sunday 1-6 pm, and by appointment. Please check the gallery website for related events throughout the course of the exhibition.

ODETTA’s Flat Files are curated to tie in with every exhibition. Lester Rapaport’s monumental painting Robin’s Passing will be the featured work on the studio wall over the flat files. In the cabinets, Lydia Viscardi’s works on paper and collages from her new series, Cover Up, continues the layered images using the same found car crash photographs, lace, and drawn elements, bringing viewers into a more intimate encounter with her work. Margaret Roleke will present related silkscreen images and etchings. 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 each artist brings to this curated space.

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.
