FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: Kinetic Energy Featuring Lee Waisler March 16th, 2017-April 29th, 2017 Reception: Thursday, March 16th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by March 9th, 2017 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com 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. Waislers body of work comprises abstract compositions as well as portraits, both featuring a prominent and distinctive use of line for composition as well as a tool to divide space and color into distinctive, physical boundaries. The use of raised lines and blocked areas of color is reminiscent of a woodblock print, with the line in this case building on top of the surface rather than revealed through the carving away of negative or positive space, turning a painting into something far more sculptural. In his portraits these wooden separators are used to show areas of shadow, a change in color - in his abstracts, this line is used as a means to both compose as well as direct the artistic process. Waisler turns towards iconic as well as historically significant public figures for subject matter in his portraits. This interest relates to Waislers early work, which depicted political statements and took stances on the Vietnam War and the American Civil Rights Movements. Throughout his work, Waisler utilizes dimensional compositional elements including wood, sand, carbon, and glass. Waislers intent and approach renders the works unyieldingly direct - they are evocative, poetic, and bold. Waislers work is held in numerous permanent collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, New York The Jewish Museum, New York, New York the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, England the Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC and the National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, India. Lee Waislers work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression!

Sign Language
Apr 06, 2017 -- May 13, 2017
Margeaux Walter Sign Language April 6th May 13th, 2017 Opening reception with the artist Thursday, April 6th, 6-8pm Winston Wchter Fine Art, New York is excited to announce Sign Language, the gallerys fourth solo exhibition with photographer Margeaux Walter. Through staged environments, studio lighting, and saturated imagery, Walter constructs colorful domestic scenes that explore the psychological effects of modern life. These captivating compositions are photographed from the top down, a perspective that visually abstracts the scene by eliminating depth. The large-scale prints allow viewers to encounter varying levels of abstraction and familiar details, highlighting the interplay between the real and imagined. These stylized works reference modernist painting and the consumer culture revered in advertising. Primary, for example, is inspired by a Mondrian painting. Others, like Nova and Red Dot, are derived from the rugs featured in the photographs themselves. All works are made up of noticeably mass-produced home dcor that Walter herself consumes and interacts with by performing each of the characters in the scenes she creates. Walters compelling works depict familiar settings within the home, including quiet moments of respite as well as chaotic scenes involving spills, children, and chores. Walter evokes the anxiety and social isolation of domestic inhabitants that are consumed and seemingly trapped by their environment. Indeed, the figures themselves rarely interact, and their faces are often obscured. Yet, the colorful and ordered compositions somehow mask the vacancy of the scene, hinting at how we curate our external image and form our identity in the digital age. Margeaux Walter was born in Seattle, Washington and currently lives and works in New York City. She received her MFA from Hunter College in 2014 and her BFA from NYUs Tisch School of the Arts in 2006. She has received multiple honors from the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward, Photolucida, Prix de la Photographie Paris, International Photography Awards, and other organizations. In 2017, Walter will participate in the MacDowell Colony Residency. In 2016, she was selected for the New York Times Portfolio Review. She has participated in dozens of exhibitions at institutions such as MOCA in Los Angeles, California, Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey, The Center for Photography at Woodstock in Woodstock, New York, Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, California, Sonoma County Muesum in Santa Rosa, California, Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma, Washington, and the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, Massachusetts. Her work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, New York Post, Seattle Times, Boston Globe, and Blouin Art Info.

Expanding Expectations: Portal to Enigma, Persistence of Form, and The Fire Within
Apr 25, 2017 -- May 16, 2017
This spring Agora Gallery presents a trio of exhibitions that elevate tradition. The group exhibition Portal to Enigma takes on abstraction, with participating artists depicting people, nature, and everyday life through various aesthetic lenses. Some play with color, some play with pattern, some even attempt to turn the invisible visible and play with time. There are also pieces that are purely non-representational studies in repetition, brushstroke, and tone contrasts. A smaller collective exhibition, Persistence of Form, seeks to tease more out of the realist style. The featured work runs the gamut from hyperrealistic to dreamily idealized. The exhibition evokes an incredible variety of emotions using forms and symbols that are easily recognizable. The gallerys solo exhibition, The Fire Within: A Solo Exhibition of Ceramics by Susan Kadish, is a celebration of sculptor Susan Kadishs deep knowledge of ceramic techniques and cultural curiosity. Kadishs body of work includes firing applications from all over the world, and representative figures as well as vessels. Her imagination is as impressive as her technical range. All three exhibitions open on April 25, 2017 and run through May 16, 2017, with an opening reception on April 27 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: April 25, 2017 May 16, 2017 Reception: Thursday, April 27, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_4_25_2017.aspx Featured Artists: The Fire Within: A Solo Exhibition of Ceramics Susan Kadish Portal to Enigma Mague Brewer A.

Al Peters: Just Painting and Small Drawings
Apr 25, 2017 -- May 20, 2017
The Painting Center presents the solo exhibition of Paintings and Small Drawings by Al Peters in the Main Gallery and the Project Room. In the introductory essay to the exhibition catalog entitled Just Painting Darragh McNicholas writes that Peters non-objective paintings are composed of a finite number of shapes, colors, and sizes that are coupled and recoupled the same way 12 notes are recombined to produce an infinite number of musical compositions. In each painting, whatever color forms the ground functions like a tonic note on which the other colors build. Individual works can be alternately bright, serious, frenetic, humorous, spacious, or serene. Mr. McNicholas also says, For Peters, the paired down act of painting always sits at the heart of his artistic production. Al Peters is anchored by a sensibility that sees painting as a simple, humane act that persists despite theory and politics, not because of it. As Peter Schjeldahl writes, the old, slow art of the eye and the hand is possessed of an unparalleled ability to express what its like to have a particular mindin a particular body. This singular trait enables painting to continually beat cultures actuarial table, surviving the periodic proclamations of its death. Al Peters himself has said, Painting is simply painting---and it is unlike anything else and everything else and there is nothing else which can or will ever take its place. My drawings are both validation and exploration: A reaffirmation of what I have already done in the paintings, and an attempt to explore that which I might in the future do. Non-objective art---like all art---is an invented, absolutely specific and unique experience. My art is not clothed in the guise of the recognizable and I am not interested in subject matter or narrative. My intent is to suggest and allude to and the only definite thing is the exact specificity of the painting itself. Painters embrace the conversation painting and contribute to that conversation by making their paintings. All painters everywhere and of all times invent ways of making their paintings, and this is what painting is and that is what painters do, each within the confines of personal taste, chosen influences and traditions. I am and have always been gratefully nurtured, informed and sustained by a profound and unshakable faith in the power of FORMS. Al Peters was born in Detroit, Michigan and received his BFA and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He was the recipient of a scholarship to the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, Maine, where he studied with the painter John Button. From 1970 to 1976, Mr. Peters was an instructor in the Fine Arts Department of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. He moved to the Bennington, Vermont area in 1976 where he worked briefly for the artist Kenneth Noland in Shaftsbury, Vermont. Moving to New York City in 1987, he taught Watercolor Painting at the Educational Alliance Art School and has, since the year 2000, been teaching Art History Survey Art & Culture at the Mercy College Manhattan campus at Herald Square. Al Peters has been a member of The Painting Center since 2013. His art has been shown in New York City and Long Island, Minneapolis, Chicago, Vermont and Florida and is in numerous corporate and private collections.

On Love and Barley: Art from Japan
Apr 13, 2017 -- May 27, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ON LOVE AND BARLEY: ART FROM JAPAN April 13 - May 27, 2017 Cavin-Morris Gallery is pleased to present an eclectic exhibition of artworks from Japan including Noh and shrine masks, folk textiles, folk sculptures, contemporary works by Margaret Yuko Kimura and Yohei Nishimura, and contemporary ceramics from sake-ware and chawan tea bowls to non-utilitarian sculpture. We called this exhibition On Love and Barley because we feel the entire world is in between those two words: barley, the essence of survival and sustenance, and love, the ephemeral world of compassion and human contact. We dedicate this exhibition to the spirit of the poet Basho. We will also be showing works of Japanese Art Brut including, Monma, Terao Katsuhiro, Yuichi Saito, Syunji Yamagiwa, Hirotaka Moriya, and Yoshiyasu Hirano. The art world is only just now becoming familiar with the wide range of sculpture, paintings and drawings by artists not working in the mainstream, yet producing works of deep power and insight. Cavin-Morris is proud to be part of the vanguard specializing in this growing aspect of international Art Brut. The ceramists we will show include Shigemasa Higashida, Yukiya Izumita, Katsumi Kako, Aki Katayama, Mami Kato, Kentaro Kawabata, Touri Maruyama, Hideo Matsumoto, Shozo Michikawa, Akihiro Nikaido, Ryoji Koie, Toshio Ohi, Akira Sataki, Kato Takahiko, Yoh Tanimoto, Shiro Tsujimura, Koichi Uchida, Hiroyuki Wakimoto, and others. Cavin-Morris Gallery has always been greatly influenced by the Japanese aesthetics from historic to contemporary, secular to spiritual. We celebrate work that is timeless, rooted in the natural world, and always deeply evocative. For further information please call 212 226 3768, or write info@cavinmorris.com.

Endurance: New Works by Xie Xiaoze
Apr 06, 2017 -- Jun 17, 2017
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening on April 6th of Endurance: New Works by Xie Xiaoze. Born in Guangdong, China in 1966, Xie Xiaoze graduated from Tsinghua University and the Central Academy of Arts and Design, Beijing before moving to the United States and settling in Texas where he continued his studies in a very different environment. He is currently the Paul & Phyllis Wattis Professor in Art, Department of Art & Art History, Stanford University, California, USA. As a realist painter by vocation, early in his career Xie found a way to combine his passionate interest in Chinese history and current world events with more formal concerns by focusing on the materials stored in archives and library stacks as the subject matter of his paintings. During his career he has approached this subject matter in many different ways but it is paintings of libraries with which he is most closely associated. The first painting in the Library Western Books Series dates from 1993 but the theme has still not been exhausted. In late 1994 when he returned to China for the first time since moving to the United States, he began working on the Chinese Library Series which is also still ongoing. Ten years later in 2005 a change of emphasis began with the Museum Library Series in which the treatment of the photographic sources is generally more specific. The current exhibition includes paintings based on photographs that Xie took in libraries in Beijing, Kathmandu, New York, Oxford, New Haven, and Toronto. Unlike the German photographer Candida Hfer whose photographs of famous libraries concentrate on the splendid architectural surroundings created to house collections of books, Xie focuses on telling details, only rarely revealing the name of an author or title of a volume. A great deal is revealed, however, as he lingers on decaying bindings or more serious damage caused by historical events. In the 20th century Chinese libraries have suffered more than most, a fact treated with particular poignance in Xies Chinese Library series. Dramatic new additions to this theme are the works titled Through Fire Books that Survived the Anti-Japanese War of Resistance at Tsinghua University Nos. I, 2 and 3. After the Japanese invasion of China in 1937, Tsinghua University moved to the south of China and many books were gravely damaged. The partially burnt, scorched pages of these Chinese books and manuscripts attest equally to the long history of suffering caused by global conflicts in the twentieth century and to the constant risk of the effacement of historical memory whether caused by accident or deliberately. The ancient leather and vellum bound volumes depicted in paintings of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, University of Toronto and the Beinecke Rare Books & Manuscript Library are have also endured many centuries of turmoil and are often in a precarious state of preservation but they are now treasured and preserved in scholarly libraries. The prominence given to the metal shelving in The Morgan Library and Museum f 318 emphasizes the fragility of the books with their decaying bindings. As a painter, Xie is also a cultural historian, deeply aware of what he refers to as the vulnerability of culture, memory, and history and the seeming decline of printed matter today. The somber tonality and large scale of his paintings endows the volumes with a singular gravitas. He achieves a remarkable balance between detailed recording of the appearance of his inanimate subject matter books and manuscripts and an increasing delight in fluid brushwork and painterly effects that often verge on abstraction.

Michael Poast describes his sculptures as being created from strong emotions. His recent explorations into thresholds, by which he means the carving out of spatial areas and volumetric forms, has lead him to using linear forms to imply volume. Organizer: Jim Furlong.

DIL HILDEBRAND LOREM IPSUM
May 02, 2017 -- Jun 30, 2017
Opening Reception: May 2nd 6-8pm C24 Gallery is pleased to present Lorem Ipsum, an exhibition of new paintings by Canadian artist Dil Hildebrand. This will be Dil Hildebrands first solo exhibition in New York. Lorem Ipsum presents a new series of paintings and collage that highlight the artists distinctive working process in which he examines space and surface. The exhibition will be on view May 2 - June 30, 2017 with an Opening Reception on Tuesday, May 2 from 6 - 8pm. Dil Hildebrands new body of work focuses on spatial concepts of design, the construction of image, and the mechanics of representation in art. His work is informed and influenced by a diversity of references and methods, including modernist strategies of fragmentation and re-composition, pictorial tropes of Western art and theatre, and post modernist architecture. Layered panels follow a consistent color palette throughout the work, playing with distortion, and depth of field. In Lorem Ipsum, Hildebrands paintings deliberately move away from the austerity of the Cartesian aesthetic to create broader, stylistic movement in space, transcending two-dimensionality and blurring the lines between spatial representation and abstraction. Drawing from experience in scenic painting in theatre, Hildebrand employs the techniques of illusion used in set design. In Lorem Ipsum, his highly stylized brush strokes mixed with collage and layering of acrylic panels, produce the experience of post-modern architectural form. The artist uses several materials in this work: nylon flocking, commonly found in wallpaper, sand, resin and acrylic paint, all layered on clear acrylic panels. The highly physical surfaces create a sense of deep pictorial space. The resulting images frame the body of the viewer in life-sized patterns that imitate the grandeur of structural design. Frameworks and passageways are important motifs to Hildebrands work. Windows are leitmotifs of architectural patterning, ordering the way we think and move through the world they represent the intersections of movement between states of being. Charged with neurosis and rich with history, the architectural image acts as both a map and a record of physical and psychological experience. In this way, the actual frame of Hildebrands paintings act as a window or portal. As if looking through a doorway, the eye rises and falls traveling through the bold shapes and colors of the panels. The result is a transcendent experience that both architectonic spaces and Hildebrands paintings share: a compulsory recognition of the present. Dil Hildebrands work has been shown internationally in such venues as The National Art Museum of China, Beijing 2010 the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa 2012 Herron Galleries at University of Indiana, Indianapolis 2013 Choi & Lager Gallery, Cologne 2013 Union Gallery, London UK 2012&13 University of Manitoba School of Art.

Hildebrand is an MFA graduate of Concordia University, Montreal and has been awarded a number of distinguished grants and awards including the International Residency at Acme Studios, London UK 2013 the Canada Council for the Arts 2010 the Banff Centre Thematic Residency 2009 Conseil des arts et des lettres du Qubec 2009 and was winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition 2006. Major public institutions throughout Canada, including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Muse dart contemporain De Montral, the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Bank of the Canada Council, have collected Hildbrands work. In 2017, he will present solo exhibitions at Plein Sud in Longueil, Quebec McClure Gallery, Montreal Centre Space, Toronto and C24 Gallery, New York.

The fair will join Art New York at Pier 94, located on the Hudson River at 12th Avenue at 55th Street. JoAnne Artman Gallery will be showcasing the work of America Martin and John Crash Matos: two artists with distinctive sensibilities in subject matter and concept, yet linked through an expressive formal approach. Martin continues her exploration of humanist themes through figurative abstraction and powerful, raw elements of color and line. Crashs recent work takes his iconic visual language of the classic New York graffiti underground to fresh considerations of abstraction utilizing the spray paint medium. Martins work is expressive of her Colombian-American cultural heritage, grounded in art historical lexicon and expansive as well as inclusive in form. Scenes of everyday life that link the body to the continuity of nature permeate her work, portrayed through both the human form as well as the classic still life. Martin continually redefines her oeuvre through new material considerations, continuing the ubiquitous theme of the human condition and our relationships with the physical world. Crash is pioneering not only in his technique and style but also in his pivotal role in directing the way we perceive graffiti today. Curating the groundbreaking show Graffiti Art Success for America at Fashion Moda, New York, in 1980, Crash brought attention to graffiti on an international stage, re-directing the dialogue around it as a legitimate art form. His work has been part of numerous museum and gallery exhibitions around the world, including shows such as Graffiti at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and Art in the Streets at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. We invite you to join us at CONTEXT New York as we celebrate universal themes in art through a dynamic visual dialogue of the work of America Martin and John CRASH Matos.

Here the everyday and the universal find equal footing in their distillation into singular, evocative artifacts.

The work of James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell addresses this discourse through reflective interpretations of the feminine ideal through context, material and approach. In Wolanins work an idealized snapshot image is filtered through memories of the artists own personal history. Maxwells 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. James Wolanin elevates the subject of Americana through a vivid re-imagining of the type imagery depicted in popular American advertisements from his childhood, rendered in a precise, hard-edged style, using surfboard resin as a finish. Unlike the idealized dream-girl stereotypes prevalent in contemporary media, Wolanins women lean towards the wholesome. These captured moments are full of a winking charm simultaneously nostalgic and fresh. The flat planes of color, soft palette, and nod to vintage and minimalist tonal transitions help the works read on an abstract level, creating a deeper resonance between the compositional elements. Wolanin continuously plays with the imagery, working between the ambiguous and beguiling, redefining the narrative. Jane Maxwell explores the complexities of the feminine ideal through the paper medium of current advertisements, brochures and original billboard papers. The work has a feel of the sculptural through the sheer physicality of this material, which is layered, cut and peeled into distinctive female silhouettes. Exploring the ubiquitous and inundating nature of the advertisements, as well as our perception of them, the work presents a complex commentary. Completely deconstructing the original intent of the source material, the artist clothes and forms the female body out of this aggregated ephemera, synthesizing the idealized imagery of the advertisements into something with entirely new meaning. These artists will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and youre sure to find the right artistic expression!
