ODETTA is Moving from Bushwick to Chelsea

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

ODETTA Gallery after calling Bushwick home for many years is moving their gallery to Chelsea. Currently they are have exhibitions in both locations, one serving as a bridge to the other – collectively the exhibitions are called Femmes Fatales.

Bushwick:
Ann Chernow, dubbed the Queen of Noir, is also one of owner Ellen Hackl Fagen’s mentors. She is honored to bring the artist’s newest works to ODETTA for their final exhibition in the Bushwick gallery. ODETTA is also pleased to feature Susan Bee’s newest paintings and artist’s books as the flat file feature in the Bushwick gallery. The three paintings on the main wall of the studio are focused on mythical goddess figures in the act of smiting their transgressors and saving their people. The exhibition’s run is March 15 – April 14, 2019 with an opening reception Friday, March 15, 6-8 pm. There will also be an artist’s talk, Sunday, March 31, 3:00 pm

Chelsea:
Gelah Penn will install a single, monumental work in ODETTA’s new location in the 1st Dibs Gallery in the Terminal Markets in Chelsea. Like Chernow’s, Penn’s work is significantly informed by film noir. Her site-specific piece, Ebb Tide, embodies noir-esque  light and shadow, and female anxiety and resilience through layers of fabrics and plastics, both translucent and opaque. The exhibition runs from March 15 – April 11, 2019. Meet the artist reception on Friday, March 22, 4-6 pm and Wednesday, March 27, 12-2 pm.

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.

 

 

Yolanda Sánchez’s The Intensest Rendezvous at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Saturday, February 16th, 2019

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its latest solo exhibition of recent paintings by Yolanda Sánchez. Yolanda Sánchez takes the title for this series of works from a Wallace Stevens’ poem, Final Soliloquy of the Interior Paramour, and says: “No one-to-one relationship is attempted here between painting and poetry, but simply a desire to reflect Stevens’ notion of relationship in a general sense. A relationship between the outer world and the inner one, that is, ‘the intensest rendezvous.’ In this rendezvous, an experience of enlightenment takes place in which ‘…we collect ourselves, out of all the indifferences, into one thing.’ The poem is a beacon of light and hope, of those things that are good in the world. It echoes what I aspire to compress into my work: a spirit of celebration, expansion, optimism – inspiration against the dark – and in Stevens’ words, ‘a compensation for what is lost.’

The exhibition is on view through March 23rd, 2019

Annette Davidek, “New Paintings” at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its first solo exhibition of recent paintings by Annette Davidek.

Davidek’s enticing use of color energizes her paintings and exaggerates the other-worldly quality of her work. Her paintings are populated by abstract botanical forms that appear to proliferate in three-dimensional space. These bright, organic forms burst with color and surge with life, like cells dividing under a microscope. This sense of rapid growth and expansion is not overwhelming but rather, emits a sense of symbiotic harmony.

By thinly layering multiple glazes of oil paint on panel, Davidek veils forms over one another, creating an ambience to her work where indistinct shadows emerge from a hazy aura. These colorful forms range in size and become increasingly opaque as they approach the foreground, creating a magnetic pull that attracts the viewer into an alluring world full of life then pushes them back to the surface.

The exhibition closes February 9th, 2019

DAVID MORRISON: NATURE’S EPHEMERA at Garvey|Simon

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present David Morrison: Nature’s Ephemera, an exhibition featuring the artist’s realist colored pencil drawings of the specters of the natural world.  Morrison toggles seamlessly between realism and abstraction, creating highly complex compositions from his observation of branches, leaves, and abandoned animal habitats. This is Morrison’s third solo show in New York, and his fourth solo show with Garvey|Simon.  The opening reception will take place on Thursday November 15, 6-8pm. The artist will be present. 

“My drawings capture the degeneration cycle of plant materials and how they echo the living conditions of man and nature. I am interested in capturing the reality of their existence, with all the imperfections, echoing their fragile existence in nature.”
