Brooklyn’s Ground Floor Gallery presents Women at Work

Friday, May 4th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery’“Women at Work” features three Brooklyn-based woman artists – Natalie Baxter, Paola Citterio, and Leslie Tucker – whose work questions traditionally masculine or feminine labor roles and materials by reinterpreting family histories, consumer culture and politics.

Natalie Baxter employs sewing and quilting techniques from her grandmother to create soft sculptures exploring Americana and the political zeitgeist; Paola Citterio creates pieces blending the traditional craftwork she learned from the women in her childhood home (knitting, sewing, felting and baking) with found objects from city streets; and Leslie Tucker translates her passion for satire, consumer culture, and decoding human nature into suggestive digital collages layered with meaning.

The exhibition is on-going with a closing reception on May 13th 2 – 4pm.

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.
