The Wasp in the Garden at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Wasp in the Garden, Marilla Palmer’s third solo show with the gallery.

There is an inextricable connection between nature and the work of Marilla Palmer in inspiration, process, and concept. Her mixed media pieces blur the distinction between the organic and artifice, using dried foliage and scavenged detritus alongside synthetic materials to enrich rendered paintings of branches and flowers.

In Palmer’s studio, leaves and petals that have been gathered from her garden are pressed, wings are collected from dead insects, and mushrooms are gathered to make spore prints. These elements sneak into the work among drawn shadows of branches and watercolor florals, often nearly undetectable until after careful inspection. Then, Palmer brings a touch of glamour with lush fabrics, sequins, and glitter, adding a celebratory level of additional beauty.

Please see the companion exhibit The Hot House curated by Marilla Palmer.

The Hot House at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Hot House, a group show curated by Marilla Palmer.

 Marilla Palmer has curated The Hot House in conjunction with her show, The Wasp in the Garden also at KMFA. Complementing her exhibition of mixed media botanical works, this group of artists represents a range of ways art is used to study, celebrate, and engage with nature. Not only are they inspired by nature as a whole, specific elements of nature are brought into their studios to be photographed, rendered, or used as raw materials. This intimacy, admiration, and protectiveness of these pieces of nature is reflected in the work, whether through traditional drawings or contemporary abstraction.

Humble Iterations: small scale works at Markel Fine Arts, until 23/Dec

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Humble Iterations, an ambitious group show of small-scale artwork. This show consists of gallery artists and a few guest artists who, while using a variety of sizes in their practice, also create small versions of their signature styles. Small, in this case, is loosely defined as paintings and works on paper that are under 20 inches at the largest dimension. In creating these, the artists pare down their visual vocabulary to the most important marks or motifs.

Artists included are as follows: Ky Anderson, Diane Ayott, Lisa Breslow (whose Summer Lights is shown above courtesy of Kathryn Markel), Mary Didoardo, Laura Fayer, Elizabeth Gilfilen, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Sydney Licht, Sara MacCulloch, Don Martiny, Martina Nehrling (whose work The Devil You Know is shown below courtesy of Kathryn Markel), Marilla Palmer, Nancy Rubens, Debra Smith, Josette Urso, Annie Wildey, and Tamar Zinn.
