Sara Nightingale Gallery presents Monica Banks, Pulchritude and Paton Miller, Paintings

Friday, June 29th, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Monica Banks, Pulchritude and Paton Miller, Paintings, opening Saturday, June 30 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The exhibition runs through July 26.
 
Pulchritude, a word that sounds ugly, means beauty. Monica Banks’ latest series of porcelain confections and celebratory cakes embrace this paradox. Rendered in sumptuous pastel hues, her ceramic monuments to domesticity examine ugliness, tragedy, creepiness and asymmetry, qualities that beauty must inherently contain in order to be deeper and more meaningful than mere “prettiness”. As usual, Banks’ reflections on problems in the world at large inform her depiction of tiny figures within and on top of the confections. Banks gives these disenfranchised creatures attention they would not otherwise receive. She has said, “All moments deserve a tribute, whether those moments are hopeful or tragic.” Her cakes continue to serve as empathic memorials honoring animals and humans, as well as objects and mythical characters. 
 
Paton Miller’s oil paintings depict ordinary scenes enhanced by his unique inventiveness. Inspired by world travel, as well as domesticity and family life, Miller employs an earthy, neutral pallet, reinforcing his connection to nature and the outdoors. Human figures, as well as animals and invented “species”, populate his canvases. These subjects bring to life Miller’s allegorical narratives that reference other places in other times. Several motifs appear repeatedly in his works: waves depicted as triangular blocks of color, mules and other animals carrying objects on their backs, boats, water and exotic foreign landscapes. When Miller travels, he paints the people he meets as a way to get to know them.

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

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.

Sara Nightingale Gallery presents Steven Kinder, Natural Forces

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Steven Kinder, Natural Forces, June 18 – July 18th.

Natural Forces, Steven Kinder’s works on paper and canvas created between 2013 and 2016, explore his fascination with dynamic tension found in nature. Tornados, tidal pools, sunbursts, black holes, combustion, organic symmetry and fractals are among the sources of inspiration for these deeply saturated and mostly large-scale works. Kinder’s drawings/ paintings – there are elements of both mediums in each work – express the radiant vitality and energetic playfulness inherent in his practice.
