Driven to Abstraction at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Driven To Abstraction, an all-women exhibition featuring paintings and works on paper by Caroline Blum (Window on Haight Street 2017 above),  Lori Ellison, Dana James, Melanie Parke and Lizzie Scott. The exhibition has been guest curated by Caroline Blum, a New York based abstract artist, and her husband David Reisman, a writer with Frieze Magazine.

The idea took shape for Caroline after reading recent criticism of mainstream museums and galleries for exhibiting more men than women. In response, Caroline chose to make a curatorial statement and feature five strong women painters. Making connections through social media and in galleries, Caroline identified a group of artists, leaders and innovators in contemporary abstraction, who would shine both individually and as a group.

Driven to Abstraction will be on view March 1 – April 13, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 1, 6-8pm

Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, at Susan Eley Fine Art

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017
 CAROLYN MONASTRA, BURNED OUT CAR, EAST BASTROP, TEXAS, USA, 2011 (2011),

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, a group exhibition featuring paintings and photographs by Charles Buckley, John Conn, Victor Honigsfeld, Valeri Larko, Beñat Iglesias López, Carolyn Monastra, Maria Passarotti and Ruth Shively.

The car is so much more than a machine that moves people from point A to point B. It is a symbol of freedom, an emblem of America’s pioneering spirit, a status symbol, a mark of one’s wealth, and sometimes, a sad substitute for a home or a temporary place to lay one’s head. In addition to driving (pun intended) the nation’s economy and commerce, the car has played an important role in American culture – high and low—making appearances in advertisements, pop songs, film and fine art. This celebration of the culture of the car in America will run from January 12-February 24, 2017.

Susan Eley Fine Art presents – To Have and Not to Hold

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of To Have and Not to Hold – a two-person exhibition featuring paintings by Vivian Kahra and photography by Leah Oates.

 Leah Oates is represented by work from her ongoing series Transitory Space, for which she has traveled extensively to China, Canada, Finland and the US. This exhibition includes trees and waterscapes photographed in Nova Scotia, Canada and Prospect Park, Brooklyn (2012-2015). Oates employs a double and sometimes triple exposure, which creates halos of light, dappled, misty surfaces and gauzy effects in muted greens and blues. She offers us stunning, lyrical landscapes in constant flux, shifting and becoming. As time never stands still, neither do the scenes and subject matter through which we experience the march of the clock.

In most of her paintings, Vivian Kahra features a central figure, as in Boy BalancingMan Standing, Fail and Connecting. Whether in motion or still, the figures underline the idea that the world is in constant movement; shifting, swaying and recalibrating as we, its inhabitants, do what we can to keep up and match the planet’s energy. Figures are drawn in activities favored by the artist—rowing, skateboarding, skiing, or sometimes standing still in contemplation.

The exhibition runs until December 31, 2016

Susan Eley Fine Art presents The Poetry of Mending by Angela A’Court

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

 

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of The Poetry of Mending, a solo show of new pastel paintings by Angela A’Court.  A’Court’s medium of choice is soft pastel and her genre the still life. But her still lifes are anything but still. She animates cups, jars, jugs, vases, tables and chairs on backgrounds saturated with deep blues, reds, purples and yellows. These everyday objects–adored and treasured by the artist as relics of memory and fleeting visual imagery–animate the paper surface, as actors do a stage. Each object, with its unique shape and volume, seems to buzz with a constant, low-level energy, making infinitesimal adjustments towards a psychological and physical balance with its fellow vessels.

Exhibition runs from  September 15-October 28, 2016

Opening Reception: Thursday September 15, 6-8pm
