Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents ECHOES – a group show

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Echoes, a group show of works that are manifestations of loss featuring artists Peter Hoffer, Sarah Irvin, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Ryan Sarah Murphy, and Dana Oldfather (Dana Oldfather, “Porch Lights On” above).

An echo, at its core, is a distant version of what it once was. A sound reverberates, then fades. It can be a haunting memory, or instill a sense of wonder. An echo can also be a reminiscence, a nod to something that came before it. The present echoes the past. It is not a perfect replication of it, but an acknowledgment of its heritage.

The works collected in this group show are echoes both in process and in concept. Their origins are transformed and concealed. The resulting piece appears to be its own entity, but still contains whispers of how it began. There is a loss of form, color, or imagery, but that does not detract from what remains. These artists are also investigating the loss of places, time, objects, and concepts as they create so that the work itself becomes an homage, an echo, to these distant sources.

On View November 30th – December 23rd, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky in conjunction with her exhibition of new paintings, BTW also at the gallery.

 The word “stack” has many meanings, like voluptuousness (stacked), worthiness (stack up), and exploding in anger (blow your stack). With today’s political divisions, the connotations lead quickly to “stacked against,” using power in a partisan way to force someone to do something or to tip the scales in favor of one side. We say: “The deck is stacked against me.” “The odds are stacked against you.” “The numbers are stacked against us.” Yet a position of insight and resistance can be reached by knowing how things are stacked up.

 Artists Joe Amrhein, Susan D’Amato, Torkwase Dyson, Ginny Casey, Deborah Dancy, James Esber, Valerie Hegarty, Nina Katchadourian (“What Did I Do?” image above), Joan Linder, Mary Lum, Thomas McArdle, Susan Meyer, Gina Occhiogrosso, Crit Streed, Craig Taylor and Heeseop Yoon combine and order things, and thereby acknowledge that no one element can tell the whole truth. The visibility of the parts within the whole identifies the importance of these smaller, multiple truths, offering us a glimpse of what was lost and gained in the process of assembling and condensing. The sum of the parts is both the sum and the parts, and the poignancy of that equation is beautifully realized in these works.

Show is ongoing and closes June 17.,

Adah Rose Gallery Presents – In this Moment

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

The Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington, MD is pleased to present the two person show, In This Moment, featuring the works of artists Anne C. Smith and Christina Tenaglia. The show runs through June 4th, 2017.

Night holds a special fascination for Anne Smith.  She combines the intense black of charcoal with delicate lines of graphite in her drawings inspired by memory and landscape.  Her art is beautifully deliberate; a glimpse into another world.  With elegant lines, Anne creates an awareness of spatial relationships.  Her work suggests a vastness with the quietude and stillness of night. Hints of form or space inspire questions and observations about the visual language of minimalism and abstraction.

Christina Tenaglia’s sculptures are in a continual state of doing and undoing, arriving at a perfect moment of repose.  Using mostly wood and paint, each sculpture is carefully constructed and inspires a playful exploration of its parts.  They are fragments, passing thoughts, rigorous, but also full of wonder. Christina’s works on paper are simple gestures and expansive thoughts, suggestive of architecture and landscape.  Using pen and ink and bits of collage, she creates compositions that are both abstract and recognizable, full of whimsical and curious details.

About Venetia Norris

Creating all her work with everything that is provided around her, Norris tunes into small and delicate details which make up our surroundings documenting scenes which can be easily missed.

Living and working in London, Norris explains how everything living has a unique shape and form, everything makes its presence felt in some way, leaves a mark, some traces on or below the surface, everything strives to find its place and space, however small, everything struggles to become part of the whole.

Trying to understand that journey is what interests Norris, how a plant or a flower grows into itself, how it composes it’s self, where it is found, the various stages of it’s journey, how it emerges into it’s self, and how that self is then seen.

Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’ (5/Nov-5/Dec)

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Anise Gallery presents works by Jeanette Barnes in ‘Time and Tide’, an exhibition at their Shad Thames space running from 5th November to 5th December.

Jeanette Barnes has, for the past 25 years, been capturing the city of London’s boundless energy through her drawings. Often vast in scale, they engage with the continual development of the urban environment and its relationship with those who inhabit it. In contrast to the frantic scenes that they depict, Jeanette’s drawings evolve gradually over time, the ebb and flow of information, akin to a passage of time, developing until the drawings outcome is found.

Her most recent work has taken her further into the depths of time, moving away from the familiar contemporary London to an exploration into its history, hidden and preserved amongst the river beds of the Thames. Everyday artefacts, carefully selected for their resonance, from specific sites along the Thames, St Paul’s, the Globe Theatre and Shad Thames, are reinterpreted. Their simplistic beauty highlighted and through integrating these objects into her work, Jeanette reconnects them with the present London.

‘Time and Tide’ brings these two bodies of work together for the first time, contrasting the activity and timespan of contemporary London with that deeper sense of history that London’s rivers maintain to re-frame our view of then and now.
