JoAnne Artman Gallery Presents: “Kinetic Energy” Featuring Lee Waisler

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

KINETIC ENERGY

Graceful lines and bold color brought together through a nuanced approach to texture and material. A line that is both a relief as well as a spatial tool to curve shadow, compose color and separate texture. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Los Angeles based painter Lee Waisler (b. 1938). Through varied subject matter, the grouped works show the culmination of a long and articulated artistic practice, utilizing an established visual language and unifying approach.

Throughout his work, Red pictured above, Waisler utilizes dimensional compositional elements including wood, sand, carbon, and glass. Waisler’s intent and approach renders the works unyieldingly direct – they are evocative, poetic, and bold.

Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month.”

Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to present the magical  ‘Origin of Myth’ by Joshe Goode.

Inspired by amateur archaeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Joshua travels the world performing staged archaeological excavations exposing the malleability of our history.  During these performances he discovers his own versions of historical artifacts, crafted from objects from his youth–such as baseball cards, G.I. Joe action figures, POGS, and various other toys and items. His discoveries and claims, while false and absurdly comical, are based on real research. This exhibit highlights some of his most significant recent discoveries.

 The exhibition runs from March 7th-April 12th

Bridging the Divide: AWAD collaborates with Pen + Brush during Armory Week 2017

Monday, February 27th, 2017

As we all grapple with how to face a world that looks, feels and almost is completely upside down, the role of art is more critical than ever.

Art has the capacity to freely reflect dissent, provoke empathy, and understanding, and offer solace through expressions of sheer humanity, beauty, and love.

This collaborative panel discussion on Thursday, March 2nd, in New York City, is set to prompt a productive dialog between artists and the arts professionals who work to support their voices. The event hashtag #ArtWomenUnite echoes our embrace of ALL women, working together in unity during changing times.  (more…)
