Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition at Susan Eley Fine Art

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition, opening with a reception on Thursday, November 15, 6-8 pm. The exhibition, comprised of 17 encaustics and oil paintings by New Jersey-based artist Lisa Pressman, and 17 acrylic paintings on canvas, acrylite and mixed media studies on paper by Korean-born artist Soonae Tark, will remain on view through December 27, 2018.

This is Soonae Tark’s first major exhibition with SEFA, having participated in the group show “Korean Art Now ” (2015). We are delighted to once again collaborate with curator Heekyoung Song, whose gallery Artflow focuses on contemporary Korean artists, to feature Tark’s paintings.

Soonae Tark’s studio in Sunnyside, Queens is awash in color. Canvases in bright orange, blue, hot pink and red line the walls. Tark’s signature painting is made up of a bright colored background furnished with towers of geometric forms, each a different size, shape and color. Tark’s repertory of shapes includes oblongs, rectangles, squares, wedge-shaped triangles and circles. Each shape is lovingly hand drawn, never perfectly symmetrical and always imperfect, reflecting the realities of an imperfect world.

Lisa Pressman exhibited with SEFA in the group show “Making Their Mark” (2011), the two-person show “Mapping a Place” (2014) and most recently at Art Toronto 2018. In some ways this exhibition represents a retrospective for Lisa Pressman. While the paintings on view are recent, they reflect and refer to 30 years of her content and mark making. Recurring themes of hash marks, vertical mark making, and symbols of vessels and containers are present.

 

Las Gravitas at ODETTA

Monday, November 12th, 2018

ODETTA is pleased to present Las Gravitas with Yvette Cohen, Lester Rapaport, Margaret Roleke, and Lydia Viscardi.

The weight of our country’s political schism is brought into view, both symbolically, as well as literally, in this four-person exhibition at ODETTA.

The overriding social concerns of this era prompts a preoccupation with our mortality, but, in some cases, also demands a persistent need for escape, a release into the imagination.

 Las Gravitas is the gallery’s final exhibition for the 2018 fall season. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday, November 16, 2018, from 6 – 8:00 pm and the public is invited. Gallery hours are Friday thru Sunday 1-6 pm, and by appointment. Please check the gallery website for related events throughout the course of the exhibition.

ODETTA’s Flat Files are curated to tie in with every exhibition. Lester Rapaport’s monumental painting Robin’s Passing will be the featured work on the studio wall over the flat files. In the cabinets, Lydia Viscardi’s works on paper and collages from her new series, Cover Up, continues the layered images using the same found car crash photographs, lace, and drawn elements, bringing viewers into a more intimate encounter with her work. Margaret Roleke will present related silkscreen images and etchings. Opening each drawer in the cabinet presents interactive site-specific installations on a micro-scale that offer an element of surprise with the breadth of dimensionality and innovation each artist brings to this curated space.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents The Built Environment

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts  is pleased to present The Built Environment, a group show curated by Alyssa Alexander and Celeste Kaufman.

The relationship between artists and nature has been celebrated throughout history, with landscape painting and honoring the sublime often being at the forefront of respected art. Even with abstraction, references to the natural world are common. The urban landscape, however, has not been as extensively explored. The Built Environment is a collection of artists who are inspired by the manmade world. While working in abstraction, they incorporate elements of urban architecture, industrialization, and technology that occupy these spaces. Their use of line, color, and form are reminiscent of the geometry of the city, and their materials may be sourced from the city itself.

This show features the work of Luke Achterberg, Mary Didoardo, Joanne Freeman, Gudrun Mertes-Frady, Robert Walden and Noah Loesberg. It is ongoing through September 8, 2018.

ODETTA Gallery presents Curmudgeon

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

ODETTA Gallery feels that you can trust a curmudgeon. They’re some of their favorite people. Deep down, they’re tender-hearted. Gruff, stoic, humorous, and empathic. With pencil, sewn materials, kitsch, and word play the gallery’s curmudgeons explore unlikely materials to deliver their message. ODETTA hopes that visitors will come out and spend some time with their cranky artists and their work. You’ll more than likely share a laugh while taking in the view.

The exhibition features David Borawski, Carla Rae Johnson, and Rita Valley. As is their practice the gallery curates Flat Files. The featured artists are Patricia Dahlman and Gil Scullion.

The exhibition runs June 1 – July 1, 2018 with the opening reception on Friday, June 1, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 1, 3:00 pm  (Story Telling Performance with Suzanne Benton 4:30)
Special Event: Handwriting the Constitution- with Morgan O’Hara Sunday, June 17, 2-5 pm

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.

On View January 4th – February 10th, 2018
