ODETTA Gallery presents Fever Songs

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

ODETTA Gallery is pleased to present Fever Songs. Ecstatic song, meditation, blending, Fever Songs is an evocation for peace and harmony. Artists Meg Hitchcock and John Morton seek order in chaos, creating unity through shared expressions of faith freed from the constraints of organized religion.

Running concurrently with Fever Songs is Creative Tech Week. Artists that have been selected explore concepts in their art through digital media, gesture tracking, animations, open source coding, and graphics. Creative Tech Week is a city-wide symposium exhibiting the intersections of cutting edge technology and the arts. ODETTA has curated nine artists into their Studio area and Flat Files for this year’s Creative Tech Week theme, and to tie in with Fever Songs.

Creative Tech Week artists will transform the Flat File and Studio areas in back of ODETTA. Artists Jeff Becker, Ellen Hackl Fagan, Joshie Fishbein, Patrick Gallagher, Greg Garvey, Matti Havens, Chris Klapper, and Gregory Kramer will install video projections, LED installations, digital prints, and touch sensitive screens.

Special Events at the gallery include:

Concert: The Orangetown Resolution, Scott Colley and John Morton

FLOWER POWER at Garvey|Simon until April 28th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Flower Power, featuring works by six contemporary artists exploring flora in a wide range of media, is the first-ever show co-curated by Ellen Hackl Fagan, of ODETTA Gallery and Elizabeth Garvey, of Garvey|Simon.The two gallerists share a common aesthetic and the exhibition combines artists from their respective programs. Artists include: Christopher Adams, Jackie Battenfield, Daisy Craddock, Sally Gil, Mel Prest, and Sung Won Yun. 

Flowers, gently seductive in their ability to indelibly imprint upon us memories of first meetings, euphoria, and romance, inspire wonder. Flower Power explores both the materiality of flowers through different artistic media, and the entanglement of biological and emotional phenomena they represent. The six artists shown represent a variety of artistic practices, including ceramic, works on paper, and acrylic, and demonstrate the full spectrum from abstraction to realism. Each artist attends to the duality of their subject, offering up an array of technical innovations with which to capture the physicality of flora, and a diverse perspective on flora’s symbolic charge. Flower Power at once enhances and unravels the romance of its muse.

The Gallerists, both members of AWAD who had previously met at Art on Paper, were delighted to co-curate this exhibition. “We were able to connect and re-connect over time because of AWAD, which has been great. We realize that through community we stand a much better chance of growth and strength.”

Nancy Baker’s No Regrets at ODETTA Gallery

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

ODETTA is pleased to have artist Nancy Baker return to the gallery with No Regrets, a solo exhibition of new site specific work. For the exhibit Baker seizes upon current political anxiety that informs her series of works which employ text from the US Constitution, in addition to mathematical constructs such as Pi, and the Golden Section. Intermixed within her constructions are additional phrases which seek to undermine the authority of No Regrets, such as Fewer Answers, No Illusions, Some Ideas, and Little Idea How. In claiming a definitive confidence, there is for Baker, consequences of hubris which reflect a truly complex lifetime of shifting doubts.

ODETTA’s Flat Files are curated to tie in with every exhibition. Meg Atkinson, Richard Bottwin, Dana Kane, and Becca Lowry have created new works that bring viewers into a more intimate encounter with their work. 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.  Richard Bottwin’s Bauhaus inspired wood constructions will be the Flat File Feature on the main wall in the studio.

Exhibit is ongoing until April 8th. There will be an Artist’s Talk on March 25th at 3:00pm.

ODETTA is pleased to present APPEARANCE

Monday, November 6th, 2017

 

ODETTA Gallery is pleased to present APPEARANCE featuring artists Patrick Carrara and Janet Passehl. The show is ongoing through December 3, 2017. The artists’ talk will be on Sunday, November 12th, at 3:00pm.

For Patrick Carrara and Janet Passehl, a completed work of art is the final moment captured in a series of repeated gestures, performed over time. The smallest variations invite shifts in perception, as they pay strict attention to their materials. Both artists create physical boundaries, which become the stages upon which a rigorous process of consciousness, layering, folding, pressing, and draping invite us to come in for a closer look.

For this exhibition, gallery’s curated Flat Files feature new sculptures and drawings by Kurt Steger and Jesse Hickman.
