Ground Floor Gallery presents The Spaces In-Between: Subway Drawings by Patrick Jewell, 2016-18

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery hosts Act 4 in their 5th anniversary exhibition, “. . . in 5 Acts,”. The fourth act features artist and master portraitist, Patrick Jewell. This will be the artist’s exhibition debut of his resonant subway drawings which capture his fellow straphangers in moments of contemplation and self-reflection. A nomadic art practice which emerged from time and space constraints in his daily life, the subway drawings are also a testament to the strength of observation and relentless dedication to one’s craft.

Exhibition closes on August 12th.

Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder at Sara Nightingale Gallery

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder, opening Saturday, May 26, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Both artists are inspired by motion in the natural world and/ or the human body. 

Margaret Garrett is an artist and dancer whose abstract paintings allude to the qualities of rhythm and movement. Trained as dancer, she left home at the age of sixteen to join the Pennsylvania Ballet and later danced with the Cleveland Ballet as a soloist. She began to paint in her early twenties, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color. Garrett’s approach to painting is strongly influenced by her early training in dance. “When I begin working on a new piece, I see the paper or canvas as an empty stage…” Texture, form, and the interaction of colors are, for her, manifestations of motion, rhythm, and energy.

Steven Kinder attended Cooper Union and has been making drawings, paintings, and large scale installations inspired by movement, energy and “natural forces” for over four decades.  His recent work advances his interests in various forms of dynamic tension found in nature, specifically tidal bores, surges, and whirlpools. Even his easel is not static; he designed a rotating mount for his works. Kinder wants his work to “call out in some way”. He is inspired by the eternal color of Rothko, the angst embedded in the figures of Bacon, and geometric abstractions.
Exhibition ongoing until June 26th

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.,
