No Longer Supported at the Sara Nightingale Gallery through April 19th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present, No Longer Supported. The exhibition will run through April 19.

The software you use daily and rely upon has been deprecated. It is no longer safe to use, and its imminent obsolescence includes an upgrade that purports to improve your life, but is actually designed to enhance the spyware, obfuscate your metadata, and make you even more dependent. The transition will be cumbersome and time consuming. But do you really have a choice?

Rather than assembling a group of artists who are concentrating on the demise of traditional painting supports – torn, shredded or punctured canvasses, exposed stretcher bars, paintings hung backwards, oddly shaped canvases, painting as sculpture, etc… this exhibition will focus on works that address time as a subject, or are time-sensitive. The omitted torn canvasses, however, serve as a metaphorical backdrop. Support systems and structures we were once accustomed to are failing us. Infrastructure, government, technology and nature, rather than sturdy pillars on which we can depend, now seem like mere scaffolding. All have been unpredictable and unruly of late. The exhibition features: Bonnie Rychlak, Darlene Charneco, Maggie Simonelli, Barbara Friedman, and Christa Maiwald

  A percentage of proceeds from sales will be donated to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp.  Mail your donation to: PO Box 2725, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.

FLOWER POWER at Garvey|Simon until April 28th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Flower Power, featuring works by six contemporary artists exploring flora in a wide range of media, is the first-ever show co-curated by Ellen Hackl Fagan, of ODETTA Gallery and Elizabeth Garvey, of Garvey|Simon.The two gallerists share a common aesthetic and the exhibition combines artists from their respective programs. Artists include: Christopher Adams, Jackie Battenfield, Daisy Craddock, Sally Gil, Mel Prest, and Sung Won Yun. 

Flowers, gently seductive in their ability to indelibly imprint upon us memories of first meetings, euphoria, and romance, inspire wonder. Flower Power explores both the materiality of flowers through different artistic media, and the entanglement of biological and emotional phenomena they represent. The six artists shown represent a variety of artistic practices, including ceramic, works on paper, and acrylic, and demonstrate the full spectrum from abstraction to realism. Each artist attends to the duality of their subject, offering up an array of technical innovations with which to capture the physicality of flora, and a diverse perspective on flora’s symbolic charge. Flower Power at once enhances and unravels the romance of its muse.

The Gallerists, both members of AWAD who had previously met at Art on Paper, were delighted to co-curate this exhibition. “We were able to connect and re-connect over time because of AWAD, which has been great. We realize that through community we stand a much better chance of growth and strength.”

Sarah Lee exhibition at Leica Gallery Los Angeles

Monday, March 26th, 2018

Diana Ewer, a member of the AWAD London Chapter, has organised a show of photographs by London based photographer Sarah Lee at Leica Gallery in Los Angeles.

In 2015, Lee was commissioned by BAFTA to officially document its awards ceremonies. With unprecedented access, she was briefed to photograph whatever she wanted, in order to capture the unique narrative of these events. Lee chose to shoot in digital black and white with the aim of finding intimate and emotional moments amidst the public and formal nature of BAFTA’s events. Whilst drawn to the glamour and echoes of ‘old Hollywood’, she has refined a sensibility and approach, which revels in the territory of the unguarded, playful and surreal.

Lee’s photographs have already been published in a number of publications, including The Guardian, TIME, Billboard, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and Intelligent Life. She has also exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery in London.

The exhibition is available to view at Leica Gallery Los Angeles until 2nd April 2018.
