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

JoAnne Artman Gallery Laguna Beach presents JAMES VERBICKY | New Works

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

JoAnne Artman Gallery in Laguna Beach is pleased to present JAMES VERBICKY | New Works. Working within the collage medium, James Verbicky’s sculptural collages are visually rich in content and meaning. The work can be read as both sculpture as well as painting, an opulent, textural assemblage of paper strips that unfurl and cascade over the surface. Verbicky’s current body of “media paintings” explores the idea of the mental continuum or mind stream through paper collage. The pieces are sculptural collages that play on the on the idea of the found object or assemblage, with Verbicky positioning the strips to create new images that become evident at a distance, the jumble of words and colors taking on new form and shape. Language is an important part of Verbicky’s artistic practice as well, with the positioning of the letters, symbols, and phrases taking on new life as well, transforming the disparate elements into a continuous story. The works carry a spiritual resonance as through Verbicky’s choice in titles, uniting the works in the idea of awareness of both the constant fluctuations of our lives and the universal state of motion.

The exhibition closes September 3
