Rooted Down and Rising Up at Elisa Contemporary Art through September 28th, 2017

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to present “Rooted Down and Rising Up”. This three-woman show features artists  and runs through September 28th.

The artists draw their influences from nature – the flowers, leaves and vines – deeply rooted in the world all around us to portray the complex connections into the human mind, body, soul, and spirit. The featured artists utilize a range of creative mediums and styles. California artist Sara V. Cole, uses layers of torn and hand cut paper leaves and botanical shapes sometimes up to 300 pieces, collaged with acrylic paints. Virginia artist Michelle Gagliano (work pictured above), combines imaginary ‘natural’ forms with textural patinas creating breathtaking panoramas that both evoke timeless private visions and invoke universal themes and emotions. Chinese artist, Amy Cheng, works with oil on paper and on canvas using patterns from around the world.

Village West Gallery presents The Four Seasons

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017
Village West Gallery is proud to present The Four Seasons, a group show of paintings, photographs and sculpture by 31 artists that runs from May 15-July 30. For centuries, artists have been inspired by the dramatic seasonal changes in light, mood, temperature and environment, caused by the earth’s orbit and rotational axis. The show is broken into the four seasons with an additional category of all seasons. This show features results from cooperation with two other AWAD member galleries – the Ivy Brown Gallery and Arco Gallery.

Village West Gallery is easily accessible from Manhattan – at 331 Newark Avenue in Downtown Jersey City, seven blocks from the Grove Street PATH Station.

Every April, Ground Floor Gallery owners, Krista Scenna & Jill Benson, celebrate the gallery’s anniversary by asking artists from the previous season to recommend artists to show in the current season.   
 

The 5 talents in “Current Locations” were selected from these recommendations and the duo is  thrilled to introduce them to you! 
 

“Current Locations” also speaks to these artists’ affinity with creating a sense of place (or places): painter Barbara Marks creates voluminous pictorial & interior spaces with her deeply saturated color palette; Elise Church paints intimate environments based on her travels in space in time; Colombian artist, Esperanza Cortés incorporates natural resources and folklore motifs from her homeland as a means of exploring personal identity; Kyle Vu-Dunn sculpts warped “natural” environments to harbor the self; and Viviane Rombaldi Seppey blends world maps (with emphasis on places she’s lived) with morbid imagery from traditional medical textbooks. 

Exhibition is ongoing and closes May 29th, 2017
 

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky in conjunction with her exhibition of new paintings, BTW also at the gallery.

 The word “stack” has many meanings, like voluptuousness (stacked), worthiness (stack up), and exploding in anger (blow your stack). With today’s political divisions, the connotations lead quickly to “stacked against,” using power in a partisan way to force someone to do something or to tip the scales in favor of one side. We say: “The deck is stacked against me.” “The odds are stacked against you.” “The numbers are stacked against us.” Yet a position of insight and resistance can be reached by knowing how things are stacked up.

 Artists Joe Amrhein, Susan D’Amato, Torkwase Dyson, Ginny Casey, Deborah Dancy, James Esber, Valerie Hegarty, Nina Katchadourian (“What Did I Do?” image above), Joan Linder, Mary Lum, Thomas McArdle, Susan Meyer, Gina Occhiogrosso, Crit Streed, Craig Taylor and Heeseop Yoon combine and order things, and thereby acknowledge that no one element can tell the whole truth. The visibility of the parts within the whole identifies the importance of these smaller, multiple truths, offering us a glimpse of what was lost and gained in the process of assembling and condensing. The sum of the parts is both the sum and the parts, and the poignancy of that equation is beautifully realized in these works.

Show is ongoing and closes June 17.,
