James Moore – All That I’ve Seen at Susan Eley Fine Art

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of “All That I’ve Seen: Paintings, Sculpture and Works on Paper by JAMES MOORE (1938-2013)”, on view from June 27-August 30, 2018. This is the first exhibition of James Moore’s artwork since he passed away in 2013 at the age of 75. The exhibition celebrates the artist’s life, which was rich in art, steeped in color and full of the love of family and friends, with a reception on Wednesday, June 27, 6-8 pm.  All That I’ve Seen is the first exhibition of Moore’s art at SEFA. The gallery is honored to host this retrospective showing, the most comprehensive exhibition to date of the artist’s oeuvre. The exhibition includes 12 large acrylic paintings on canvas, dozens of works on paper in Cray-Pas, colored pencil and paint, and a selection of bronze table-top sculptures.

“I don’t see shapes as much as I see the energy of elements interacting to move, stop, support or explode. I mostly use clean bright color to keep my world hot and alive. My paintings are like a snap-shot record – trapping the moments of an event where something beautiful happened.”

– James Moore (1938 – 2013)

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Four Degrees of Abstraction

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Four Degrees of Abstraction, a group show curated by Anne-Brigitte Sirois. 

Four Degrees of Abstraction brings together paintings by four artists, Xiaofu Wang, Suzanne Olivier, Cora Cohen, and Morgan Everhart, working in various degrees of abstraction and investigates each artist’s iconographic relation with nature. The exhibition aims to consider the hierarchical distinctions first positioned by art critic and champion of abstract painting, Clement Greenberg, who wrote in his essay On Abstract Art(1944), “Let painting confine itself to the disposition pure and simple of color and line, and not intrigue us by associations with things we can experience more authentically elsewhere… art that is representational too easily suggests narrative and thus panders to literature.” Nearly seventy-five years and many waves of Clem-bashing later, the formalist perspective occupies a position at the zenith of the established culture, yet it remains a subject of controversy.

The show will run June 21st – July 28th.

“Endless Summer.” by Danny Galieote at the JoAnne Artman Gallery

Monday, June 4th, 2018

JoAnne Artman Gallery  is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Danny Galieote with a focus on iconic American summertime scenes – Endless Summer.

Danny Galieote has a propensity for capturing the quintessentials of Americana in works that blend realist narratives with a pop sensibility. The works are reminiscent of classic, vintage postcard imagery with an undercurrent of poetic, and often surprising, juxtaposition. The stylistic effect is a blend between the old-school charm of Norman Rockwell, with the unexpected twist of surrealist René Magritte.  

The show is ongoing until August 14th, 2018. The Artists’ Reception is on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm

Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder at Sara Nightingale Gallery

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder, opening Saturday, May 26, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Both artists are inspired by motion in the natural world and/ or the human body. 

Margaret Garrett is an artist and dancer whose abstract paintings allude to the qualities of rhythm and movement. Trained as dancer, she left home at the age of sixteen to join the Pennsylvania Ballet and later danced with the Cleveland Ballet as a soloist. She began to paint in her early twenties, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color. Garrett’s approach to painting is strongly influenced by her early training in dance. “When I begin working on a new piece, I see the paper or canvas as an empty stage…” Texture, form, and the interaction of colors are, for her, manifestations of motion, rhythm, and energy.

Steven Kinder attended Cooper Union and has been making drawings, paintings, and large scale installations inspired by movement, energy and “natural forces” for over four decades.  His recent work advances his interests in various forms of dynamic tension found in nature, specifically tidal bores, surges, and whirlpools. Even his easel is not static; he designed a rotating mount for his works. Kinder wants his work to “call out in some way”. He is inspired by the eternal color of Rothko, the angst embedded in the figures of Bacon, and geometric abstractions.
Exhibition ongoing until June 26th
