VanDeb Editions presents – Summer Selects

Monday, June 4th, 2018

Each summer VanDeb Editions chooses prints from among the artists that they have worked with for their Summer Selects show. Each artist worked with Master printer Marjorie VanDyke to create either etchings, aquatints or monotypes at the VanDeb Studio. The show is up from June 5 – August 31st.

DEBORAH FREEDMAN & MARJORIE VAN DYKE  began their association at Robert Blackburn’s Printmaking Workshop in 1988 – sharing a passion for etching and monotype. In 1999 they founded VanDeb Editions – collaborating with artists to explore the process of making prints while expanding their aesthetic vocabulary. It has been a joy for them to work with the 43 people who have produced prints of originality and superlative production values.

“Endless Summer.” by Danny Galieote at the JoAnne Artman Gallery

Monday, June 4th, 2018

JoAnne Artman Gallery  is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Danny Galieote with a focus on iconic American summertime scenes – Endless Summer.

Danny Galieote has a propensity for capturing the quintessentials of Americana in works that blend realist narratives with a pop sensibility. The works are reminiscent of classic, vintage postcard imagery with an undercurrent of poetic, and often surprising, juxtaposition. The stylistic effect is a blend between the old-school charm of Norman Rockwell, with the unexpected twist of surrealist René Magritte.  

The show is ongoing until August 14th, 2018. The Artists’ Reception is on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm

Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder at Sara Nightingale Gallery

Saturday, June 2nd, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Velocity Games: New Work by Margaret Garrett and Steven Kinder, opening Saturday, May 26, 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Both artists are inspired by motion in the natural world and/ or the human body. 

Margaret Garrett is an artist and dancer whose abstract paintings allude to the qualities of rhythm and movement. Trained as dancer, she left home at the age of sixteen to join the Pennsylvania Ballet and later danced with the Cleveland Ballet as a soloist. She began to paint in her early twenties, finding something spiritually akin to dance in the movement of line and color. Garrett’s approach to painting is strongly influenced by her early training in dance. “When I begin working on a new piece, I see the paper or canvas as an empty stage…” Texture, form, and the interaction of colors are, for her, manifestations of motion, rhythm, and energy.

Steven Kinder attended Cooper Union and has been making drawings, paintings, and large scale installations inspired by movement, energy and “natural forces” for over four decades.  His recent work advances his interests in various forms of dynamic tension found in nature, specifically tidal bores, surges, and whirlpools. Even his easel is not static; he designed a rotating mount for his works. Kinder wants his work to “call out in some way”. He is inspired by the eternal color of Rothko, the angst embedded in the figures of Bacon, and geometric abstractions.
Exhibition ongoing until June 26th

ODETTA Gallery presents Curmudgeon

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

ODETTA Gallery feels that you can trust a curmudgeon. They’re some of their favorite people. Deep down, they’re tender-hearted. Gruff, stoic, humorous, and empathic. With pencil, sewn materials, kitsch, and word play the gallery’s curmudgeons explore unlikely materials to deliver their message. ODETTA hopes that visitors will come out and spend some time with their cranky artists and their work. You’ll more than likely share a laugh while taking in the view.

The exhibition features David Borawski, Carla Rae Johnson, and Rita Valley. As is their practice the gallery curates Flat Files. The featured artists are Patricia Dahlman and Gil Scullion.

The exhibition runs June 1 – July 1, 2018 with the opening reception on Friday, June 1, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 1, 3:00 pm  (Story Telling Performance with Suzanne Benton 4:30)

With Hong Kong ranking seventh internationally for global trade, it’s clear that people from all over the world convene there to seek precious jewels from the heart of the Pearl River Delta.
