Where in the World is Arteria Gallery this Month?

Monday, November 12th, 2018

Arteria is pleased to share that they will be traveling to both Singapore and Hamburg for the Affordable Art Fairs in each City.  It’s a great pleasure for then to head back to AAF Singapore to showcase the new work of our artists. Singapore is starting to feel like home for their team, it will already be the 10th time for the gallery in this beautiful fair. Visit them at Booth 2B-10

Artêria is really happy to have a greater presence in Europe this Fall.  AAF Hamburg is a relaxed and inspiring day out with family and friends. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere, packed program of hands-on workshops, tours and a delicious café to refresh and refuel. You don’t need to be an experienced art collector, to fall in love with contemporary art. Come and see the team at Stand E4 to discover the new works freshly out of our artist’s studios!

Both Fairs take place November 15th – 18th.

Las Gravitas at ODETTA

Monday, November 12th, 2018

ODETTA is pleased to present Las Gravitas with Yvette Cohen, Lester Rapaport, Margaret Roleke, and Lydia Viscardi.

The weight of our country’s political schism is brought into view, both symbolically, as well as literally, in this four-person exhibition at ODETTA.

The overriding social concerns of this era prompts a preoccupation with our mortality, but, in some cases, also demands a persistent need for escape, a release into the imagination.

 Las Gravitas is the gallery’s final exhibition for the 2018 fall season. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday, November 16, 2018, from 6 – 8:00 pm and the public is invited. Gallery hours are Friday thru Sunday 1-6 pm, and by appointment. Please check the gallery website for related events throughout the course of the exhibition.

ODETTA’s Flat Files are curated to tie in with every exhibition. Lester Rapaport’s monumental painting Robin’s Passing will be the featured work on the studio wall over the flat files. In the cabinets, Lydia Viscardi’s works on paper and collages from her new series, Cover Up, continues the layered images using the same found car crash photographs, lace, and drawn elements, bringing viewers into a more intimate encounter with her work. Margaret Roleke will present related silkscreen images and etchings. Opening each drawer in the cabinet presents interactive site-specific installations on a micro-scale that offer an element of surprise with the breadth of dimensionality and innovation each artist brings to this curated space.

Blanket Statements: Works by Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield & Marie Watt presented by Accola Griefen Fine Art and MINUS SPACE

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

Accola Griefen Fine Art and MINUS SPACE are pleased to present the three-woman exhibition Blanket Statements: Works by Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield & Marie Watt. This is the first collaborative project by the galleries and it will take place at MINUS SPACE’s location in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The show closes

Artists Gina Adams, Maria Hupfield, and Marie Watt are of indigenous decent and fabric plays a significant role in their respective practices. No other blanket statements can be made, however, about the work of these three individuals. Each has a unique approach to her materials, as well as the confluence of tradition and innovation. Adams, Hupfield, and Watt make work that resists simplified interpretation. Gina Adams draws upon cultural practices passed down from her ancestors, as well as a family history of forced assimilation. Her Broken Treaty Quilt Series consists of restructured antique quilts sewn with words from broken treaties between Native American tribes and the United States government. Similarly, Marie Watt’s work stems from history, biography, Iroquois proto-feminism, and indigenous principles. Her large format works are commonly made in sewing circles, public events in which fellowship and storytelling can be as important as the resulting object. Felt is a favored material of Maria Hupfield, “a maker, a mover, a connector, an Anishinaabe-kwe and a member of Wasauksing First Nation.” (Art in AmericaOctober 2017). Hupfield’s performance-based photographic works are disrupted by felt collages and address the issue of self-definition. The applied fabric acts as both as a shield and a screen, repelling consumption of the body and of nation, and resisting specificity and oversimplification.
