Ivy Brown Gallery presents So do I

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to share ‘So do I’, artist Kenjiro Kitade’s search for the universal common ground in life, even in conflict. ‘Conflict is part of human nature, there is always a Side A and Side B in life and in this show it is the spectators point of view that I looking for, the place where we all can say “So Do I’ to each other and to ourselves.’

The main theme of Kitade’s artwork is focused on questioning.  The sources of the ideas are picked up from his own life experiences, starting from personal experiences and expanding into what’s happening in the world, including history, current event and future issues.  Based on these themes, He questions why it’s happening, what’s the real meaning, Kitade wants to point out these issues to people. “I would be very happy if my pieces triggered discussions with those who see my artwork.  Each piece of artwork has a theme and its own point of view, a sarcastic nuance, and I want to plant a seed in the viewers’ hearts and minds.”

The exhibition opens December 6th and runs January 6th. The artists reception is December 6th doors open at 6:00pm.

Lorene Anderson’s Swirl and Roil at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Monday, April 17th, 2017
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Swirl and Roil, Lorene Anderson’s first solo show with the gallery.
Lorene Anderson‘s paintings have a kinetic energy perfectly fitting her exploration of turbulence, gesture, and the movement and folds of space. Her undulating stripes, dimensional layers, and selective use of reflective paint transforms a two-dimensional surface into a churning, vibrating composition. The dynamic nature of her pieces even suggest environments beyond the picture plane itself, her marks seemingly extending around and beyond the edges of her paintings.
Anderson’s work is a playful investigation of figure-ground and the relationship between positive and negative space. Her paintings, an example Spatial Redux, featured above, are hypnotizing, shifting from meditative tranquility to roiling chaos and back again. Exhibition runs through May 6th.

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present More or Less, Stephen Pentak’s eighth solo show with the gallery.  

 Stephen Pentak‘s landscapes are variations on iconic themes. The scenes he paints from memory are familiar like a favorite bend in a river from childhood, and relish in how light affects nature. They appear tranquil and pristine from afar. Yet, as you step closer the evidence of his untraditional tools appear. His sweeping broad strokes of individual color are revealed, and one realizes that Pentak leans far more toward abstraction than originally perceived.

The Art of Dance at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Ivy Brown Gallery and Liss Gallery are pleased to present “The Art of Dance” by Rachel Isadora, twenty-five oil paintings inspired by dance.

Isadora’s work is inspired by both modern dance and classical ballet. It is Isadora’s tangibility to the work that draws in the viewer from a student’s perspective of training with some of the greatest teachers and choreographers such as Alexandra Danilova, Martha Graham, Jerome Robbins, Alvin Ailey and George Balanchine. This melding of the contemporary and classical dance repertoire gave her the tools to study and be inspired by the perfection of the human form telling a story. These works take the classical mediums of painting and dance and present them with the inner emotion and knowledge of a dancer as well as a fresh contemporary eye of an artist.

The opening reception will be held Wednesday, November 9th from 6:00pm – 8:00 pm.  The show runs through November 30th with in-gallery happenings inspired by dance and Isadora’s artwork.
