VanDeb Editions presents – Summer Selects

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Each summer VanDeb Editions chooses prints from among the artists that they have worked with for their Summer Selects show. Each artist worked with Master printer Marjorie VanDyke to create either etchings, aquatints or monotypes at the VanDeb Studio. The show is up from June 5 – August 31st.

DEBORAH FREEDMAN & MARJORIE VAN DYKE  began their association at Robert Blackburn’s Printmaking Workshop in 1988 – sharing a passion for etching and monotype. In 1999 they founded VanDeb Editions – collaborating with artists to explore the process of making prints while expanding their aesthetic vocabulary. It has been a joy for them to work with the 43 people who have produced prints of originality and superlative production values.

Joanne Freeman’s My Generation at Katheryn Markel Fine Arts

Joanne Freeman, “My Generation”

On View February 15th – March 24th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present My Generation, Joanne Freeman’s second solo show with the gallery.

Joanne Freeman has been feeling nostalgic. Noticing the parallels between the current political climate and the nature of the 1960s and ‘70s when she grew up, she has been interrogating the aesthetics and societal attitudes of that era in her latest work. When protest and rebellion dominated the culture and traditional institutions were under attack, music and art signaled your identity more than ever before. However, as Freeman began her education, the notions of important art were limited to the male and Western perspectives. As her own artistic identity formed, it developed as a reaction against that lineage. Female attributes and aesthetics became a choice, rather than a burden. 

Freeman’s paintings incorporate elements found in architecture, design, popular culture, and art history. Her reductive compositions and pure color mimic the low-tech graphics utilized in mid-century media, and allude to color field paintings of the 1960s. Masking her forms out beforehand gives her paintings a stencil-like feel, a nod to the printmaking techniques that were also popular at the time, as well as Matisse’s cut outs. As seen in the above painting –Space _18_1, 2018, oil on linen.
