JoAnne Artman Gallery presents – Urban Flora

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

Life and growth often find a home in the unlikeliest places. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition that juxtaposes urban grit with the delicacy of flora, highlighting the often surprising congruities in the beauty of both. Much of the motifs in art and design are borrowed from the natural world in which the processes of regeneration, life and decay are in constant flux and motion. An especially important part of this framework is the flora, or the particular plants of a region, habitat or geographical area which are as diverse, unique and localized as the constitution and customs of any urban population.  Artists Penelope Gottlieb, Anna Kincaide, and Greg Miller are artists whose work addresses this intersection between the beauty of nature and the ethos of urbanity.

Susan Eley Fine Art presents “The Night Garden”

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Arts is pleased to present Allison Green’s in “The Night Garden” from April 19th to May 31st. Green’s paintings celebrate plant forms enveloped in darkness, but illuminated by starry skies; migrating butterflies driven by their near mythic celestial navigation systems; and African Weaver Birds displaying their spectacular nest-making skills in surreal and allegorical settings. With each exhibition the artist has expanded the botanical content from single trees, bushes and weeds to now entire gardens–teeming with growth and rich with animal and plant life. Depicting plants blooming and thriving during the night, her cast of anthropomorphic characters includes Starlings, Stargazer Lilies, King and Queen Proteas, Peace Lilies, Royal Mushrooms and Monarch Butterflies. Enveloped in darkness yet illuminated by the starry sky, Green’s lush and mystical environments invite viewers to sit amidst the gardens of metaphors and uncover the stories within. 

Artist’s reception April 19th – 6:00 – 9:00.

No Longer Supported at the Sara Nightingale Gallery through April 19th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present, No Longer Supported. The exhibition will run through April 19.

The software you use daily and rely upon has been deprecated. It is no longer safe to use, and its imminent obsolescence includes an upgrade that purports to improve your life, but is actually designed to enhance the spyware, obfuscate your metadata, and make you even more dependent. The transition will be cumbersome and time consuming. But do you really have a choice?

Rather than assembling a group of artists who are concentrating on the demise of traditional painting supports – torn, shredded or punctured canvasses, exposed stretcher bars, paintings hung backwards, oddly shaped canvases, painting as sculpture, etc… this exhibition will focus on works that address time as a subject, or are time-sensitive. The omitted torn canvasses, however, serve as a metaphorical backdrop. Support systems and structures we were once accustomed to are failing us. Infrastructure, government, technology and nature, rather than sturdy pillars on which we can depend, now seem like mere scaffolding. All have been unpredictable and unruly of late. The exhibition features: Bonnie Rychlak, Darlene Charneco, Maggie Simonelli, Barbara Friedman, and Christa Maiwald

  A percentage of proceeds from sales will be donated to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp.  Mail your donation to: PO Box 2725, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.

 Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of “Of Earth and Sky: Recent Paintings by Rachelle Krieger.” This is Rachelle’s second solo exhibition at SEFA, following “Rocks and Rays” (2015), and two previous two-person exhibitions: “Currents of the Mind” (2013) and “A Semblance” (2010). The recent work is a continuation of the “Rocks and Rays” series, begun in 2015, in which the artist explores the dance between natural phenomena that is invisible (electricity, light waves, wind, air patterns) with the solid elements of earth and landscape. “Of Earth and Sky” includes paintings on linen canvas and on wood panel—ranging in size from 54 x 50 inches to as small as 8 x 10 inches—along with a suite of works on paper.

The exhibition will run from February 28th – April 12th 2018
