Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Josette Urso’s Moon Palace,

Monday, September 10th, 2018

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Moon Palace, Josette Urso’s fourth solo show with the gallery. Josette Urso’s paintings are driven by a sense of urgency. Working from her observations of her surrounding environment, her inspiration is in a constant state of flux as the light, weather, and elements of any given scene changes as she works. Whether working in plein air during her travels or looking out over her sweeping view of Brooklyn from her studio, Urso responds to the shapes, forms, light, and experience of place and seeks to capture that in heavily worked, frenetic abstraction. Urso begins with broad sweeps of color, paralleling the flow

The show runs from September 13th – October 20th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts Presents Just Beneath The Surface – Stephanie London

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Just Beneath the Surface – Stephanie London. There is a narrative undercurrent to Stephanie London’s still life paintings that give a sense that her arranged objects are like actors on a stage. Sourcing her objects from thrift stores, eBay, or flea markets, they have an inherent nostalgic history to them, and as they are used again and again in her paintings, they become a familiar cast of characters. London’s prolonged study of these objects is apparent in their composition, for there is not only evidence of a finely attuned observation to how they work with one another in light, color, shape, and mood, but the space around and between them bristles with a mysterious energy over how they may relate in their uncanny juxtaposition. This intuitive process lends a sense of London’s hand and subconscious, giving the scene a touch of surrealism.

The exhibition runs from September 13th to October 20th.

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Transcendence by artist Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence a new series to open the imagination and provide an intermission from the ordeals of life. This series combines the spontaneous nature of Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s free hand Cut Work technique with the unique color blends of master silkscreen artist Gary Lichtenstein. The cut work and silkscreen processes share a relationship of unconscious energy resulting in unexpected visual dynamic.

Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s Cut Work series is an evolving exploration of emotion and movement using free hand scalpel cut multilayered imagery. The layers make space for shadows to fall and move with the vibration of life where the imperfection is the perfection. There are no expectations, only discovery.

The image is determined in the top layer of paper. There are no guides or planned drawings. An adhesive is added under the top layer followed by another layer of paper, this layer is cut…the process continues creating multiple layers while folding in the color blend to accelerate the velocity of the image.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 6-8

Artist Q&A: Tuesday, September 25, 6-8pm

Exhibition is from September 12th – October 17th.

Joanne Artman Gallery Presents Half Naked: Featuring Ray Turner

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

JoAnne Artman Gallery presents its fall show – Half Naked: Featuring Ray Turner.  Half Naked, a showing of Turner’s most recent paintings and prints focus on exploring the dichotomies behind the idiom “half-naked” that powerfully echoes our own discomfort when confronted with the illusions of safety behind all social constructs through the viscerality of the painting medium.

In Half Naked, Turner takes his explorations into the emotive potential of the portrait to the next level, as he presents a group of works that refuse to be categorized by exclusion. From work to work, Turner presents a didactic deconstruction of the visual semantics behind recognizability of form through a parsing of the gray space of the half-formed, half-naked. The representational qualities of the works rely on Turner’s mastery of form and the vast range of human facial expression. Through slightest suggestions, Turner is able to utilize the properties of his medium to create images that capture and attune to emotional states. Created as an organic process of fluid, painterly malleability, the paintings are reminiscent of the dextrous exaggerations of Francis Bacon, the mastery of form and the grotesque of Francisco Goya, and the wide, luscious strokes of John Singer Sargent.

Artist’s Reception: Thursday, September 13th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm

RAY TURNER Porbus Oil on Canvas 50 x 40 inches

Select 3 at Garvey|Simon Gallery

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

Garvey|Simon  is pleased to announce Select 3, the third annual exhibition of work by mid-career artists chosen by director Elizabeth K. Garvey through the gallery’s innovative Review Program. This year’s artists are: Kathy Cantwell, Kate Doyle, Bob Erickson, Jeanne Heifetz, Eileen Murphy, Tim Nighswander, Steven Paddack, Jane Schiowitz, and Marilyn Turtz.

This year’s iteration features an array of mediums and conceptual frameworks, all united by their interest in the intersection between design and the natural world. Bob Erickson’s and Tim Nighswander’s plant-based subjects are abstracted by their role as compositional elements. Both Jane Schiowitz’s and Jeanne Heifetz’s works reference the dichotomy of frivolity and efficiency at the foundation of design. Marilyn Turtz and Eileen Murphy each explore personal landscapes and strategically place swaths of unmodulated color to flatten their pictorial planes. The quirky, anthropomorphic objects in Steven Paddack’s miniature water towers play with scale and form. Kate Doyle and Kathy Cantwell both utilize polished surfaces and high-key color as a means of assimilating, abstracting, and reflecting the patterns of their natural surround.

The exhibition runs from July 26th – August 17th. Opening July 26th 6:00pm – 8:00pm.
