Liaisons at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Liaisons, Nancy Cohen’s first solo show at the gallery.

Nancy Cohen is interested in the juxtaposition of fragility and strength, both in our personal lives and the environment. Her work investigates the journey of the individual navigating a perilous world, all while exploring the fragility of that world itself. Through personal study of waterways and collaborations with scientists and environmentalists, Cohen imbues her work with academic references to a natural world that is fighting back while constantly under threat.

ODETTA is pleased to present Linda Cunningham: Whose Land, Whose God?

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

ODETTA is pleased to present their third summer solo exhibition of a single monumental work of art.

Linda Cunningham: Whose Land, Whose God? will transform the gallery space with potent found remnants taken from the  Berlin Wall in 1989, stored since that time, and finally exhibited for the first time here in NYC. These artifacts will be integrated into a room-sized installation in Cunningham’s signature style with shredded drywall, photo transfers, a huge wood door, texts, and bronze gestural strokes cast from recycled military weapons.

Supporting the concepts raised in Linda’s work are works on paper by Jeanne Heifetz and Glendalys Medina in ODETTA’s curated flat files.

The show runs July 7- Aug 20, 2017.
Artist’s Reception, Thursday, July 13, 6-8 pm
Artist’s Talk, Sunday August 6, 3:00 pm

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.
