ODETTA is pleased to present Las Gravitas

Thursday, December 13th, 2018

Las Gravitas is final exhibition for ODETTA’s 2018 fall season. The weight of our country’s political schism is brought into view, both symbolically, as well as literally, in this four-person exhibition featuring Yvette Cohen, Lester Rapaport, Margaret Roleke, and Lydia Viscardi. 

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.

There will be an Artist’s Talk and closing reception for the artists on Sunday, December 16, 2018, at 4:00 pm. 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.

 

 

Chris E. King’s No Opportunity for Regret at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition No Opportunity for Regret by British photographer Chris E. King. The exhibition and the photographer’s book of the same name, takes the viewer on a personal journey through the South and South West of the United States from the passenger seat of his fiancee’s American car. From this perspective, King captures split-second vistas from the window of a car traveling at more than 70mph as well as images that are the results of walking or driving for miles. His photographic strategy is solitary in nature, combin­ing rapid responses that allow him to record the act of traveling with slower methods which visualize rural and urban landscapes. In this habitat, subjectivity is key and photographic criteria are malleable. After all, King is a foreigner and his visual encounters in unfamiliar spaces, many of which are connected to his partner’s homeland and family history, are driven by emotion.

The Exhibition is ongoing through December 19th. There will be an artist’s meet and greet

 

 

Something Blue at Panepinto Galleries

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

PANEPINTO GALLERIES, in collaboration with SPEAR STREET CAPITAL, presents SOMETHING BLUE, highlighting artwork by four artists based in Jersey City and West Orange, New Jersey – Stephen Cimini, Candy Le Sueur, Tatsuro Nishimura and Shari-Beth Susskind. The exhibition closes on May 1, 2019.

From symbolism, to psychology, to décor, to art – the most popular color in the world by far is the color Blue. Color is integral within our society and evokes a myriad of sensations and memories. Blue is found in nature in pale Blue skies and deep Blue waters, which have the psychological affect of being and calm and serene. Blue also portrays stability and reliability and has even been proven that people are more productive in Blue rooms. Wisdom, inspiration, communication, and the gift of word and song are some spiritual beliefs associated with the color Blue. Colors have meaning and have been used as powerful symbols throughout time.

Using various mediums, see how these four artists are bringing the magic of “Something Blue” into their art and inspiring our lives. The artists featured in this exhibition will explore the color Blue through an underling theme of abstraction through the use of oil paint, resin, acrylic paint and photography.

Nature of Non-Existence @ Gazelli Art House

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Opening on the 29th of November

Gazelli Art House presents Nature of Non-Existence, a new solo exhibition by Recycle Group, the award- winning artist duo known for their pioneering use of technologies from Virtual Reality (VR) to Augmented Reality (AR) throughout their practice. In their new exhibition, the artists unlock a hidden world via the use of an AR app available on the viewer’s mobile devices.

In the words of Recycle Group, “The main idea behind Nature of Non-Existence is that the visitor can change their perspective to a machine’s eyes and feel how the world is inside the brains of a machine. There are two points of view in the world: a human’s and a machine’s, a perspective that we do not see and doesn’t exist for us. The experience gives the viewer a chance to feel like a machine; not just to see it, but to feel it.

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Frank Bradfield’s Evolution

Saturday, November 10th, 2018

Frank Bradfield’s first solo art show in New York City is an exploration into the evolution of man. Evolution is nature’s answer for survival. Evolution is nature’s way of resolution. Resolution is sudden and born of human intervention. The results of human intervention and the possibilities of what might evolve within species is the central theme that Mr. Bradfield has captured in his works. As Marty Stouffer, renowned wildlife spokesperson said, “Nature can turn a songbird into a hunter”.

Evolution is happening all around the world today. Due to human intervention, species of all populations have migrated out of their natural habitats into new environments and adaptations have occurred as a result.  African Rock and Burmese pythons are now found thriving in the Florida Everglades. European wild hogs and African warthogs now dominate areas of Texas.  As the earth continues to be disrupted, indigenous creatures must adapt to their new surroundings or perish.

“Evolution is very hard not to notice; the thought of scales having evolved into feathers on the legs of a turkey excites me, consequently can you imagine a 20 foot T-Rex with feathers?” – Frank Bradfield

Exhibition closes December 4, 2018
