ODETTA’s FOUND OBJECT

ODETTA is opening the new year with FOUND OBJECT.
The best found objects hold within them the thrill of discovery and instill wonder at their quirky beauty. Glimmering in a ditch or nearly obliterated on pounded pavement, these artists keep their cast-offs, raise them up and present them, for all to see what they would call beautiful. Through the dynamics of opposites: low, unwanted to exalted, transformed, artists Jo Confino, Diane Englander, Deanna Lee, Jane Sangerman, and Sylvia Schwartz see, a little more carefully, what shimmers and shines in world all around us, freely given.
Found Object is the fourth in a series of color-focused exhibitions held in 2018 – 19. ODETTA invited several artists, who would define themselves as colorists, to submit current portfolios for these shows. The exhibitions created from this call were Hot Stuff, January 2018, Mesmerize, September 2018, Las Gravitas, November/Dec 2018, and now Found Object. While color drives the artists to create, the subjects that emerge as narrative in their abstractions have a breadth that is breathtaking.
The Exhibition closes January 27, 2019.

ODETTA is pleased to present Las Gravitas

Las Gravitas is final exhibition for ODETTA’s 2018 fall season. The weight of our country’s political schism is brought into view, both symbolically, as well as literally, in this four-person exhibition featuring Yvette Cohen, Lester Rapaport, Margaret Roleke, and Lydia Viscardi. 

The overriding social concerns of this era prompts a preoccupation with our mortality, but, in some cases, also demands a persistent need for escape, a release into the imagination.

There will be an Artist’s Talk and closing reception for the artists on Sunday, December 16, 2018, at 4:00 pm. The public is invited. Gallery hours are Friday thru Sunday 1-6 pm, and by appointment. Please check the gallery website for related events throughout the course of the exhibition.

Chris E. King’s No Opportunity for Regret at the Ivy Brown Gallery

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition No Opportunity for Regret by British photographer Chris E. King. The exhibition and the photographer’s book of the same name, takes the viewer on a personal journey through the South and South West of the United States from the passenger seat of his fiancee’s American car. From this perspective, King captures split-second vistas from the window of a car traveling at more than 70mph as well as images that are the results of walking or driving for miles. His photographic strategy is solitary in nature, combin­ing rapid responses that allow him to record the act of traveling with slower methods which visualize rural and urban landscapes. In this habitat, subjectivity is key and photographic criteria are malleable. After all, King is a foreigner and his visual encounters in unfamiliar spaces, many of which are connected to his partner’s homeland and family history, are driven by emotion.

The Exhibition is ongoing through December 19th. There will be an artist’s meet and greet

WINDY WEATHER WARNING : The Time to Act is Now

As the windows start rattling in the wind and a tumbleweed of litter rushes down the street it’s clear we’re heading into winter storm season. Just as our cousins in the southern States have watched Hurricane season since May, in the UK, Europe and North America we will have one eye on the weather forecast for the next five months, wondering whether we’ll get snowed in, cut off, flooded or lose windows in the gales.

Although winter storms rarely cause significant risk to life, the frequency of low-level damage and interruption to services is high, and businesses can be crippled for days or even weeks after a severe storm.

Gallery owners may have cause for concern;
