2018 art season kicks-off with the London Art Fair’s 30th Edition (17th – 21st January 2018)

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

From 17 – 21 January 2018, the London Art Fair will return for its 30th anniversary edition. Launching the international art calendar, the Fair offers exceptional modern and contemporary art from leading galleries around the world.

Exhibiting AWAD galleries include Anise Gallery (Stand G37), Contemporary Collective (Stand G33), The Cynthia Corbett Gallery (Stand 5), Decorazon Gallery (Stand G12), Joanna Bryant Projects (Stand P18B) and TAG Fine Arts.

In a celebration of female artistic talent at this special Fair edition, an all-female line-up is set for Dialogues. We’re delighted that AWAD Member Joanna Bryant is taking part in this guest-curated section of Art Projects that is intended to encourage and foster relationships on a global scale. This year’s exhibition is curated by Misal Adnan Yildiz and consists of five pairs of UK-based and international galleries presenting selected works by women artists, with a high percentage of Non-European participants which includes indigenous practices from Maori, Kurdish, Asian, and African origins.

Dialogues’ Curator Misal Adnan Yildiz says:

“Every year, Kunstkompass (Art Compass) releases an annual list ‘World’s Top 100 Artists’ based on the statistics of the frequency and prestige of exhibitions, publications, and press coverage, plus the median price of an artwork. The latest release from 2016 includes only 22 women as part of the 100 ‘great artists’. The 2016 results of the annual Art Price report states that the world art market profit is based on a balance of 41% European artists, 30% Chinese artists, 15% Americans artists and 15% other nationalities. What do these numbers tell us? We need to better understand how inequalities and opportunities are constructed in the art world.

As a response to the current dynamics of the art market, Dialogues 2018 presents only female and female identifying artists from a majority of non-European galleries.

This is not just a matter of positive discrimination. As an affirmative action, it is reverse discrimination.

Yes, the future is female.”

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

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Fox Gallery NYC is proud to present their current exhibit of work by Eozen Agopian and Beverly Miller Orthwein. Passionate about their subjects and scrupulous about execution, both artists offer us a feast of engaging provocative and sensory images.

Multimedia artist Agopian offers us a full menu of mixed media art from which to taste recent history, philosophy, emotions, connection and loss.

The beauty and power of the natural world and the accomplishments of highly literate and civilized cultures are celebrated in Beverly Miller Orthwein’s sophisticated watercolors. Her blend of vintage woodblock prints, antique texts and vintage sutras provide us with a rich and delightful viewing experience – Golden Poppy Acrylic, ink and watercolor on mixed media collage on paper – pictured above.

Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, at Susan Eley Fine Art

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017
 CAROLYN MONASTRA, BURNED OUT CAR, EAST BASTROP, TEXAS, USA, 2011 (2011),

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Vroom Vroom Beep Beep, a group exhibition featuring paintings and photographs by Charles Buckley, John Conn, Victor Honigsfeld, Valeri Larko, Beñat Iglesias López, Carolyn Monastra, Maria Passarotti and Ruth Shively.

The car is so much more than a machine that moves people from point A to point B. It is a symbol of freedom, an emblem of America’s pioneering spirit, a status symbol, a mark of one’s wealth, and sometimes, a sad substitute for a home or a temporary place to lay one’s head. In addition to driving (pun intended) the nation’s economy and commerce, the car has played an important role in American culture – high and low—making appearances in advertisements, pop songs, film and fine art. This celebration of the culture of the car in America will run from January 12-February 24, 2017.
