Ground Floor Gallery’s 4th Anniversary Exhibition, Current Locations until May 29th, 2017

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.,

Invocation at ODETTA Gallery

Friday, May 12th, 2017

Odetta Gallery is pleased to present Invocation. The artists,  Loren Eiferman, Camille Eskell, Charles Geiger, focus on healing, either a specific person, or thing when engaged in the act of making their works of art. The magical qualities inherent in their spirited requests can be seen in the finished work. Through the power of imagination and intense concentration, their objects make our humanity visible and vulnerable.

In conjunction with the exhibition Invocation at ODETTA, the gallery has curated their Flat Files for Creative Tech Week 2017. Jeff Becker, Joshie Fishbein, Greg Garvey (Cabinet of Wonders, Persistence and the Fugitive, animation still, 2017 pictured) Toni Simon, and Susan Stair have produced works that address geological time, persistence of nature, communication among trees and humans, and the fragility of our planet through ceramic installation, poetry, and video works.

 

Invocation is the gallery’s 24th exhibition. There will be an opening reception for the artists on Friday May 12, 2017 from 6 – 8:00 pm and the public is invited. A concert event will be held in celebration of Creative Tech Week on Friday May 19 from 7-9 pm and there will be an Artists Talk on Sunday June 11 at 3:00 pm. The show runs from May 12 – June 18, 2017

Anderson Contemporary & The Villa America Fine Art – present Anthony Haden-Guest – The Further Chronicles of the Now

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Anderson Contemporary and The Villa America Fine Art are thrilled to share The Further Chronicles of Now, a show of the ground-breaking cartoon work that Anthony Haden-Guest has been making over the last several years.  His targets are as various as the art world, our social disorders  (new & old) and the state/fate of the planet, so the work is content-driven but such formal elements as color and design are very much part of that content.

 Haden-Guest mostly works in pen and ink on paper, but he likes to extend the possibilities of cartoon language through works in neon, collaborating with animators and with other media.

The exhibit runs from May 10th – June 10th.
