JoAnne Artman Gallery NEW YORK presents Contemporary Consiousness

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

The JoAnne Artman Gallery in New York is pleased to share “Contemporary Consciousness” featuring artists James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell. The female body has long served as a muse in the arts, a lens through which the themes, issues and ongoing dialogue of the contemporary collective consciousness can be reflected. The work of James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell addresses this discourse through reflective interpretations of the feminine ideal through context, material and approach. In Wolanin’s work an idealized “snapshot” image is filtered through memories of the artist’s own personal history as in Mona Lisa of the Motorway Acrylic and Resin on Panel – featured above. Maxwell’s imagery on the other hand, while also addressing the legacy of print advertisement in the digital age, looks at its ephemerality through aggregation and accumulation. Biting into societal and personal constructs of femininity both artists commit to an encompassing approach, resulting in work that both entices and provokes.

Provenance at ground floor gallery on-going until July 9th

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

ground floor gallery is pleased to present Provenance featuring artists Ai Campbell, Sara Jones and Anne Mourier-DeFalco. The exhibition is an investigation of unfamiliar family histories through travel, artmaking, and conjecture.  

The exhibition illustrates each artist’s attempt to demystify an estranged familial connection through explorations both in and outside of the studio space. By revisiting unknown or misunderstood identities and destinations of yore, Campbell, Jones and DeFalco intimately craft tender, mixed-media portraits that veer fluidly between the biographical and autobiographical.  As a result, the exhibition emerges as a real time platform where hazy ancestral ties are elucidated and reimagined.

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
 

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky in conjunction with her exhibition of new paintings, BTW also at the gallery.

 The word “stack” has many meanings, like voluptuousness (stacked), worthiness (stack up), and exploding in anger (blow your stack). With today’s political divisions, the connotations lead quickly to “stacked against,” using power in a partisan way to force someone to do something or to tip the scales in favor of one side. We say: “The deck is stacked against me.” “The odds are stacked against you.” “The numbers are stacked against us.” Yet a position of insight and resistance can be reached by knowing how things are stacked up.

 Artists Joe Amrhein, Susan D’Amato, Torkwase Dyson, Ginny Casey, Deborah Dancy, James Esber, Valerie Hegarty, Nina Katchadourian (“What Did I Do?” image above), Joan Linder, Mary Lum, Thomas McArdle, Susan Meyer, Gina Occhiogrosso, Crit Streed, Craig Taylor and Heeseop Yoon combine and order things, and thereby acknowledge that no one element can tell the whole truth. The visibility of the parts within the whole identifies the importance of these smaller, multiple truths, offering us a glimpse of what was lost and gained in the process of assembling and condensing. The sum of the parts is both the sum and the parts, and the poignancy of that equation is beautifully realized in these works.

Show is ongoing and closes June 17.,
