Erika Ranee’s Green Rose at the Ground Floor Gallery

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery is proud to present “Green Rose,” a solo exhibition of new works culled from Erika Ranee’s rich trove of abstract, mixed-media drawings informed by nature. This show is the Act3 of a five part exhibition series in celebration of the Galleries fifth anniversary. It opens on June 28th.

“It’s been reported that abolitionist Quakers in Maryland planted and/or wore green roses as beacons of safety for slaves along the Underground Railroad.I like the idea of nature as a beacon. It plays well with my works on paper as they explore the internal biology of plants and humans (in an abstract intuitive way, of course). I think of each work on paper as a journal documentation of energy and essence. Nature is the healer and neutralizer.” – Artist Erika Ranee

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.
