Panepinto Galleries- Something Blue – From symbolism, to psychology, to décor, to art – the most popular color in the world by far is the color Blue. Using various mediums, see how the artists exhibited are bringing the magic of Something Blue into their art and inspiring our lives.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Josette Urso’s Moon Palace,

Monday, September 10th, 2018

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Moon Palace, Josette Urso’s fourth solo show with the gallery. Josette Urso’s paintings are driven by a sense of urgency. Working from her observations of her surrounding environment, her inspiration is in a constant state of flux as the light, weather, and elements of any given scene changes as she works. Whether working in plein air during her travels or looking out over her sweeping view of Brooklyn from her studio, Urso responds to the shapes, forms, light, and experience of place and seeks to capture that in heavily worked, frenetic abstraction. Urso begins with broad sweeps of color, paralleling the flow

The show runs from September 13th – October 20th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts Presents Just Beneath The Surface – Stephanie London

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Just Beneath the Surface – Stephanie London. There is a narrative undercurrent to Stephanie London’s still life paintings that give a sense that her arranged objects are like actors on a stage. Sourcing her objects from thrift stores, eBay, or flea markets, they have an inherent nostalgic history to them, and as they are used again and again in her paintings, they become a familiar cast of characters. London’s prolonged study of these objects is apparent in their composition, for there is not only evidence of a finely attuned observation to how they work with one another in light, color, shape, and mood, but the space around and between them bristles with a mysterious energy over how they may relate in their uncanny juxtaposition. This intuitive process lends a sense of London’s hand and subconscious, giving the scene a touch of surrealism.

The exhibition runs from September 13th to October 20th.

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Transcendence by artist Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence a new series to open the imagination and provide an intermission from the ordeals of life. This series combines the spontaneous nature of Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s free hand Cut Work technique with the unique color blends of master silkscreen artist Gary Lichtenstein. The cut work and silkscreen processes share a relationship of unconscious energy resulting in unexpected visual dynamic.

Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s Cut Work series is an evolving exploration of emotion and movement using free hand scalpel cut multilayered imagery. The layers make space for shadows to fall and move with the vibration of life where the imperfection is the perfection. There are no expectations, only discovery.

The image is determined in the top layer of paper. There are no guides or planned drawings. An adhesive is added under the top layer followed by another layer of paper, this layer is cut…the process continues creating multiple layers while folding in the color blend to accelerate the velocity of the image.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 6-8

Artist Q&A: Tuesday, September 25, 6-8pm

Exhibition is from September 12th – October 17th.
