JoAnne Artman Gallery Laguna Beach presents JAMES VERBICKY | New Works

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

JoAnne Artman Gallery in Laguna Beach is pleased to present JAMES VERBICKY | New Works. Working within the collage medium, James Verbicky’s sculptural collages are visually rich in content and meaning. The work can be read as both sculpture as well as painting, an opulent, textural assemblage of paper strips that unfurl and cascade over the surface. Verbicky’s current body of “media paintings” explores the idea of the mental continuum or mind stream through paper collage. The pieces are sculptural collages that play on the on the idea of the found object or assemblage, with Verbicky positioning the strips to create new images that become evident at a distance, the jumble of words and colors taking on new form and shape. Language is an important part of Verbicky’s artistic practice as well, with the positioning of the letters, symbols, and phrases taking on new life as well, transforming the disparate elements into a continuous story. The works carry a spiritual resonance as through Verbicky’s choice in titles, uniting the works in the idea of awareness of both the constant fluctuations of our lives and the universal state of motion.

The exhibition closes September 3

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 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
