Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Timeshapers

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Timeshapers, recent work by Paul O’Connor, Mimi Saltzman and Johnny Wong, opening Saturday, Dec.1 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The exhibition runs through Dec. 28.

Timeshapers brings together three friends who met five years ago in the art community of Taos, NM. One of them, Mimi Saltzman, was given an antique hourglass, which became her “shape muse”. The other two, Paul O’Connor and Johnny Wong, subvert the traditional rectangular form of painting by employing hexagons and quadrilaterals or rotating the square to a diamond shape. While Saltzman and Wong specifically address time as a subject of their work, O’Connor’s wall pieces, with their “meditation holes”, encourage the viewer to experience mindful expansion, which can temporarily alter a viewer’s perception of time. The three friends, based in Taos, Sag Harbor and New York, bridge time-zones and geographies with their artistic relationship. When Johnny Wong stacks two diamond shaped paintings, one on top of the other, the resulting shape nods to the hourglass in Saltzman’s work. Similarly, O’Connor’s geometric shapes include diamonds which echo Wong’s.

Sarah Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present artist Steven Miller. Since 2005, Miller has been taking X-rays of lungs: the lungs of our planet. It is the oxygen/ COexchange of the Amazon region that interests Miller in his Health of the Planet (HOP) series, in which X-rays of flora and fauna of the region inform his visual vocabulary. Science and technology have always factored in Miller’s art, technology being the “language of our time” and the means through which we all communicate. Like a scientist, Miller investigates and questions in his artistic practice. But rather than seeking a specific set of outcomes, he strives for compelling images that inspire dialogue. Your Version, My Version includes paintings from the Health of the Planet series that examine relationships between organic forms and technical ones, the macro and the micro, photography and painting, representation and abstraction.

The exhibition will run through April 30th.

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Reinventing the Helm opening Saturday, June 6th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. The exhibition runs through Aug. 3rd.

The artists in this invitational group exhibition examine the genres of traditional maritime and marine art using ship portraiture, seascapes, novels, folklore and ancient myths about the sea as inspiration. The obvious and straightforward have been mostly, but not altogether, thwarted here in deference to an updated and contemporary view of all things nautical. One painting by Perry Burns, whose swerving lines suggest the surface of the sea, was literally turned on its side and renamed “Waterfall” – a good metaphor for what one can expect from the exhibition.

While not specifically divided into categories, the works address several themes such as “lost souls”, meteorological events, marine life, nautical terminology and even edible “fruits of the sea”. (more…)
