Martina Nehrling, “Saudade” at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Martina Nehrling, “Saudade” 

On View February 15th – March 24th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Saudade, Martina Nehrling’s second solo show with the gallery. Saudade is a Portuguese term that defies direct translation, but Martina Nehrling thinks the elusiveness of the word is best wrangled by Jasmine Garsd. She describes it as “a melancholy nostalgia for something that perhaps has not even happened. It often carries an assurance that this thing you feel nostalgic for will never happen again.” It’s an unexpected concept to associate with Nehrling’s unabashedly optimistic work characterized by highly saturated color, but in her latest work on view in Saudade she concentrates on the presence of absence.

Ground Floor Gallery presents Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And . . . we haven’t forgotten you!

On Tuesday February 13th, from 6 – 9 at Brooklyn’s NU Hotel, come to Ground Floor Gallery’s winter pop-up Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean.

The gallery will be selling original, small art works – conceived as Valentines – by dozens of local, emerging artists. Each will be priced at $75 with $25 from each sale supporting hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and St. John: two Caribbean-American territories that share a fraught history in the sugar industry and are oft synonymous with sunny escapes. The day-to-day reality doesn’t necessarily reflect that vision – especially now, mere months after Hurricanes Irma + Maria devastated these cherished islands.

This show is a follow-up to the Gallery’s successful 2017 show “Marked Urgent,” that raised $1,000 for the Committee to Protect Journalists from dozens of your $25 donations!  This year, they’re hoping to repeat history with a new partner and location: Brooklyn’s NU Hotel at 85 Smith St. Brooklyn, NY .

ODETTA presents – Hot Stuff

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

ODETTA Gallery is pleased to present Hot Stuff. The show brings together four artists who offer color-focused sculptural installations that address both social and formal concerns.  The work of artists Joe Fucigna, Joan Grubin, Levan Mindiashvili, and Jo Yarrington transform the gallery into a space where one moves through warm fields of space, florescent colors, referencing historical and current issues.

ODETTA’s Flat Files are curated to tie in with every exhibition. David Ambrose, Joan Grubin, and Audrey Stone have created new works that bring viewers into a more intimate encounter with their work. Opening each drawer in the cabinet presents interactive site-specific installations on a micro-scale, that offer an element of surprise with the breadth of dimensionality and innovation. 

Exhibition is ongoing through February 18, 2018

JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: 
“THE NEW FIGURATIVE” Featuring America Martin

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

America Martin’s compositions of poetic juxtapositions conjure a story, with the figure as a central focal point for much of the framework. Strikingly bold, the expressive lines of Martin’s work are an assimilation of light, color, movement and form with a unique emphasis on the narrative. The imagery is familiar and transportive, steeped in personal mythology and deeply allegorical. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present a new body of work rooted in Martin’s unique approach in exploring the human form and its context.

The exhibition is the Gallery’s Winter/Spring Show. The artist’s reception is on February 8th from 6pm – 8pm.
