Truth and Beauty present Spellbound by photographer Ken Lorenz

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to present Spellbound. The show opens on February 23rd and runs to March 9th. The artist Ken Lorenz will be in attendance for the opening from 1 – 4pm.

 

EXHIBITION STATEMENT
“Inspiration for my image-making comes primarily from Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
a Latin American author who developed the novel literary genre, Magic Realism, as a basis for storytelling.
‘Magic Realism’ is defined as “making use of magic elements in order to create an alternative  to accepted reality.
Time exists in a kind of timeless fluidity.”
While each series is different, this is the overarching concept weaving them together.
The images in this exhibition have no distinct psychological relationship;  yet the distortion –
obscurity and ambiguity evident in each photograph —  establishes the artistic intention. ”

Images from three portfolios are featured in this exhibition:
In The Shadow of Puppets
Words in Search of a Photograph

Yolanda Sánchez’s The Intensest Rendezvous at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Saturday, February 16th, 2019

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its latest solo exhibition of recent paintings by Yolanda Sánchez. Yolanda Sánchez takes the title for this series of works from a Wallace Stevens’ poem, Final Soliloquy of the Interior Paramour, and says: “No one-to-one relationship is attempted here between painting and poetry, but simply a desire to reflect Stevens’ notion of relationship in a general sense. A relationship between the outer world and the inner one, that is, ‘the intensest rendezvous.’ In this rendezvous, an experience of enlightenment takes place in which ‘…we collect ourselves, out of all the indifferences, into one thing.’ The poem is a beacon of light and hope, of those things that are good in the world. It echoes what I aspire to compress into my work: a spirit of celebration, expansion, optimism – inspiration against the dark – and in Stevens’ words, ‘a compensation for what is lost.’

The exhibition is on view through March 23rd, 2019

ODETTA presents Falling into Place

Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Falling into Place with Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro.

Using gravity as a tool for their image making, these three artists works move us to consider more seriously the connection between abstraction and self-portrait. Through invented systems that nudge their materials along until their artwork makes itself, Daniel G. Hill, Norma Márquez Orozco, and Mary Schiliro playfully poke at the larger effects we all must endure as our planet spins. By attempting to harness the Earth and Moon’s magnetic pull, we see in these three a common personality emerge, artist/explorer, author and spectator.

Exhibition closes February 24th, 2019. Artists talk on Sunday February 17th at 3:00pm.

ARTful exhibiting works by Furrah Syed

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

ARTful is delighted to be exhibiting four pieces of artwork by  Furrah Syed and hope you enjoy the new selection of work now on display on the ground floor reception.

Furrah Syed is a London-based abstract artist who specialises in painting heavily-textured canvases using acrylics, oils and mixed-media.  She studied Fine Art and Textile Design along with Art History in London.

Furrah’s works show a strong commitment to colour, texture and movement. Focusing primarily on ‘pure’ colour, Furrah uses the canvas as a vehicle to promote the energy created by the interaction of pigment with brushes and various other tools. Her bold experimentation using mixed media have been well received within the art community. Her paintings have a very strong visual effect and compel the viewer to delve into the world of a purely abstract expression of vivid emotion and raw energy.

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Timeshapers

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Timeshapers, recent work by Paul O’Connor, Mimi Saltzman and Johnny Wong, opening Saturday, Dec.1 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The exhibition runs through Dec. 28.

Timeshapers brings together three friends who met five years ago in the art community of Taos, NM. One of them, Mimi Saltzman, was given an antique hourglass, which became her “shape muse”. The other two, Paul O’Connor and Johnny Wong, subvert the traditional rectangular form of painting by employing hexagons and quadrilaterals or rotating the square to a diamond shape. While Saltzman and Wong specifically address time as a subject of their work, O’Connor’s wall pieces, with their “meditation holes”, encourage the viewer to experience mindful expansion, which can temporarily alter a viewer’s perception of time. The three friends, based in Taos, Sag Harbor and New York, bridge time-zones and geographies with their artistic relationship. When Johnny Wong stacks two diamond shaped paintings, one on top of the other, the resulting shape nods to the hourglass in Saltzman’s work. Similarly, O’Connor’s geometric shapes include diamonds which echo Wong’s.
