Leon Polk Smith : Prints, Drawings, and Collages
Jun 06, 2019 -- Jul 26, 2019
Senior & Shopmaker Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of drawings and collages by abstract painter Leon Polk Smith (1906-1996), its second at the gallery. Organized in cooperation with the Leon Polk Smith Foundation, the exhibition will be on view from June 6 through July 19, 2019. Polk Smith holds a unique place in the tradition of American Geometric Abstract painting together with such artists as Burgoyne Diller, Fritz Glarner, Al Held, and Ellsworth Kelly. Drawing and collage held a primary place in Polk Smith’s practice, complementing and paralleling his work on canvas. Of the drawings on view, which range in date from 1942 to 1979, several have never before been exhibited, such as the collage Dracenia, 1954.

Greg Smith: Garage Politburo
Jun 07, 2019 -- Jul 26, 2019
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Greg Smith: Garage Politburo. The exhibition will run from 7 June to 26 July 2019 with a reception for the artist Friday evening, 7 June from 6 to 8 PM. "The world needs better bureaucracies, and I aim to give it one. A bureaucracy that doubles down on its intrinsic, implacable, and compromised mystery. A bureaucracy that saves. I know! I know! No one likes bureaucracy. It's at best a necessary evil, an unavoidable part of reality that seems to be ever-expanding. Experiences with it typically range from frustrating to devastating. But considering the current state of world affairs, I'll take procedures, forms, and bureaucrats over bias, money, and nationalism any day. My expectations, some might say, are wildly diminished. Perhaps. But I stumble toward an alternative—a beta version—for my seventh solo show at Susan Inglett Gallery, Garage Politburo. Expect an imposing edifice, seals, insignias, busts, colors, forms, hanging files, and mugs. Expect lapel pins, banners, concrete, and stacks of manila folders. And there's "Tabletop Assumption," a video of drones and organizational charts. Bureaucracy and play: there is no alternative. Throughout, imagined bureaucracies serve as inspiration: Psychoanalytic Placement Bureau (Fredric Jameson), Office of American Absorption (Philip Roth), Anti-Dishumanitarian League (Nisi Shawl), Central Services (the movie Brazil), Ministry of Plenty (George Orwell), and the Condolence Payment Department of the Joint Compensation Office (Omar El Akkad). Of course, the overwhelming mass and faceless authority of bureaucracy usually makes for grim portrayals, and rightfully so. But I see an opening: technology has changed the game, once again democratizing what had required outsized resources. Blockchain technology brings bureaucracy creation to the people, opening up the possibility of making ministries that are particular, domestically scaled, or even boutique. And the accompanying markets (inescapable nowadays) are trivial to set up, all while maintaining a bureaucratic character. Rest assured, the familiar elements are present—forms, payment mechanisms, abstraction, data storage, and unforgiving procedures—but now everyone has the opportunity to tinker. Best of luck, for example, heading to Ethereum address 0x6B9d46a223fFa343f8b14D855A8314B0EfF7fcb7 to fill out FormSI060719 (Documentation at https://www.github.com/GaragePolitburo/SI060719). This bureaucracy is but a germ, but it's complete and semi-functional. Here is a future, from the tabletop. Bureaucracy saves!" - Greg Smith Greg Smith was born in DeKalb, Illinois. He lives and works in New York. Smith received an MFA from Hunter College, a PhD in Physics from Harvard University, and a BA from Amherst College. “Garage Politburo” premiered in Michelle Grabner’s “Makeshift” at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center early this year. Greg Smith has held solo exhibitions at the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL; the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, TX; Cress Gallery of Art, University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, TN; Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College, IA; and White Columns, NYC. His work has been featured at MoMA, NYC; the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center, Atlanta, GA; Artists Space, NYC; and the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC amongst others.

Titled Burner, this exhibition presents the delights, tragedies, and minor mysteries of the everyday. Dana Powell's small oil paintings capture ordinary moments in time.

Parla's personal mark-making weaves itself into the textures and compositions of the ripped advertisements, creating an obliquely legible codex all his own.

No More Church (That Which Is Most Vital Must First Become Possible) Reception 7/11, 6pm - 8pm
Jul 11, 2019 -- Jul 27, 2019
Stephen Kasner's paintings, drawings, photographs and mixed media works reflect visions of a pre-apocalyptic, dream saturated landscape. These are delicate, momentarily illuminated struggles for the survival of our personal identities, granting value to our own human spirits. His works reach deeply into us, seeking individual hope and glimmers of enlightenment. The paintings and works of Stephen Kasner have been exhibited worldwide. His work has been featured in group and solo exhibitions in Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City, Berlin, and extensively in Australia through the touring exhibition, “Fantastic & Visionary Art”, included alongside such luminaries as Ernst Fuchs, Alex Grey, and H.R. Giger. Articles on his life and work have been published in international journals including, Coilhouse, Vice Magazine, Art Alternatives, The Washington Post, Seconds Magazine, and LINK: A Critical Journal on the Arts in Baltimore and the World. Kasner has contributed his work to support community institutions including Caritas: Cleveland AIDS Care Unit, The American Heart Association, and the Survivors of Suicide Support Group, among others. He is currently involved in fostering Art Therapy sessions in Cleveland, working with clients dealing with various forms of psychological and domestic traumas and abuse, PTSD, depression, and recovery services as a licensed drug counselor in the State of Ohio. Most recently his work was included extensively in the feature film, The Devil’s Candy (2017), directed by Sean Byrne and produced by Snoot Films (distributed by IFC Midnight in the United States). Recently returning to his native hometown after a six year residence in Northern California, Stephen Kasner currently lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio. Kasner's paintings continue to expand upon the examination of the values of the human spirit against the often stark brutalities of nature, both the purely organic and manmade. His iconographic use of figures, birds, fauna & flora translate into symbols of determination of an inner, personal, individual and simultaneously universal emotional cosmos.

Nicolas Carone : What Matters
Jun 06, 2019 -- Aug 01, 2019
Seven paintings and four works on paper offer a compelling cross section of Nicolas Carone's late period. The linear mark making that fill his paintings evokes the immediacy of a drawing. Similarly, his works on paper maintain a tonal, painterly quality and illustrate the artist’s lifelong commitment to both mediums. Filled with deep washes of grey, white and black, each canvas is punctuated with loose skeins of paint and linear brushwork that suggest the contours of the figure.

EFFUSIONS OF LIGHT: IN COLLABORATION WITH LA ’S’ GRAND ATELIER
May 30, 2019 -- Aug 02, 2019
EFFUSIONS OF LIGHT: IN COLLABORATION WITH LA ’S’ GRAND ATELIER (May 30 - August 2, 2019) Cavin-Morris Gallery is pleased to present the work of three remarkable artists from Belgium’s La ’S’ Grand Atelier. Each has a very individual style, and each works abstractly. In the cases of Eric Derochette and Joseph Lambert one could say the works are pure abstraction, as opposed to Philippe Da Fonseca who abstracts the facades of buildings in ghostly layers. Each brings to Art Brut a different, vivid approach to the world.? Like Creative Growth in the U.S., La ’S’ Grand Atelier respects and encourages its artists’ freedom to make whatever work they wish to make, traveling in whichever direction they feel they must. The three artists being shown here have worked long and hard enough to present three carefully developed visions. Eric Derochette’s highly gestural works are performances documented by his keen sense of color, from dark to almost luminescent. The surfaces, sometimes picking up the marks of protuberances in his table top, are worked hard and are surprisingly delicate in the muscularity of their accumulated layers of lines. All three of these artists make obsessive work but Derochette captures ecstatic movement in his marks.  His ultimate effect is a musical transcendence.? Joseph Lambert doesn’t vocalize much. He was a carpenter born in Ardennes, Belgium in 1950, specializing in a type of close-fitting marquetry. This experience has translated to the tightly knitted intricate formations in his drawings. He begins with letters as a  made up form of writing which he extends across the page in long tight curving movements, but eventually covers them in other marks. There is a topography to his work; he has melded a wordless language with the striations of the earth. They are his stories told in his own formula of visual speech, they are sound where he is usually non-verbal. He has given us the ability to see his voice. Philippe Da Fonseca’s ethereal buildings remind one of walking at twilight through a city coated in a shifting mist. The buildings themselves are not stable, they change constantly between the second and third dimension almost as if we were seeing, not only buildings rooted in the present, but also buildings moving in the diaphanous fabric of our senses of memory. He is a master of semi-transparency. Ultimately these structures are as much shrines as they are buildings.? Cavin-Morris is dedicated to exposing global Art Brut in the United States with an emphasis on living artists. We welcome the opportunity to show these artists from La ’S’ Grand Atelier in our developing international outreach. We feel these three artists are vital to that goal.

Painters Reply : Experimental Painting in the 1970s and now

Painters Reply, curated by Alex Glauber and Alex Logsdail, aims to answer the Artforum questionnaire through an exploration of experimental painting practices starting in the 1970s and continuing to the present moment. The selected artists reveal how the pervasive antipathy towards painting perhaps afforded a greater degree of latitude whereby materiality, application, atypical support, performative impulse and format were all of a sudden in play. The exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists, including some of those published in Artforum's responses to the questionnaire such as Joan Snyder and Dona Nelson, where the common denominator is aesthetic emancipation.

Anne-Karin Furunes : Together but Apart
Jun 19, 2019 -- Aug 09, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce Together but Apart, an exhibition of new work by Anne-Karin Furunes. The exhibition will shed light on the increasingly urgent threat of climate change, particularly as the inhabitants of Fennoscandia, the Sapmi people, experience it. Together but Apart includes a selection of portraits, landscapes, and monumental paintings rendered in Furunes’s signature technique of perforated painted canvas. Furunes’ imagery is drawn from photographs housed at the Polar Archive at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromso as well as the Sophus Tromholt Collection at the University of Bergen Library—a world-famous archive of nineteenth-century images of the Sapmi people taken during the first scientific expedition to study the Northern Lights. Though her paintings appear photographic, they are created entirely by hand through a process of meticulous perforation that mimics the looks of halftone printing. Furunes begins with a monochrome canvas. She then translates the photographic image to canvas by creating a constellation of perforated holes in varying sizes that allow for the passage of variable amounts of light. She alters each image to suit her vision, sometimes modifying the tone, perspective, and framing. Like photography, Furunes generates permanent images via the effects of light on a surface, though here the light remains unfixed and in constant dialogue with the surrounding environment.

Continuum: Five Decades
Jul 18, 2019 -- Aug 09, 2019
In honor of its 50th Anniversary, First Street Gallery is proud to present “Continuum: Five Decades,” an exhibition of work by gallery artists, from July 19th through August 9th, 2019. Five decades have passed and First Street Gallery has not only moved several times from its original home on First Street on the Lower East Side, but also from its initial vision formed by a group of graduate students from Brooklyn College, and other artists as well, all affiliated with the Alliance of Figurative Artists in New York City. In 1969, artists felt the need to return to figuration after years of Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and finally Pop Art. Many of the members were studying Balthus, Piero della Francesca and other Renaissance masters. Some went to Italy in search of the lost vocabulary of the masters of line, form, color, and spatial perspective. In the years following, new members introduced more inclusive sources for figuration, including the influence of photography as well as nineteenth and twentieth century masters. Now in 2019, dramatic changes have taken place in our global digital world, and we have embraced a vast array of directions which includes abstraction. Many First Street Gallery artists are experimenting with collage oriented spatial concepts, abstraction, narrative with contemporary themes, cinematic editing of spaces, personal iconography, and new sculptural materials. The rules of aesthetic doctrines are open and each artist seems to follow the traces of his/her own artistic history. We also know we can no longer predict what kind of future mutations and variations will take place with our new understanding of nature, urban environment, and even cosmic space. Through the years, First Street has remained an artist-run gallery, guided by the belief that artists are best qualified to impart direction to every phase of their creative work.

Patterns of Influence
Jul 16, 2019 -- Aug 10, 2019
The Painting Center presents Patterns of Influence, a group exhibition that brings together diverse works by 45 contemporary artists who teach in settings ranging from preschools to high schools, community centers, prisons and universities. Their art and teaching practices influence each other in myriad ways as well, competing for time and attention, but also energizing and inspiring each other. Patterns of Influence manifest in dense and layered materials and images; both abstract and representational. In bronze relief, wood, glass, paper, or oils on canvas, each work records a personal journey of discovery. Underlying the rich variety of the artworks in this exhibition is a palpable delight in art making that mirrors the mutual give and take of student and teacher. Artist Marta Cabral explains, “I listen to my students and help them figure out ways of relating to the world. In the studio, I try to do the same, by exploring and listening to materials.” These artists are reminded by their students to stay attentive and open to experience and to others. Even in the most abstract pieces, there is a shared sense of human presence, relatedness and adventure that animates the work. Artist and pre-school teacher Brittany Miller writes, “I’m going to keep trying to uncover the unknown… following the children wherever they lead me. That’s the most exciting thing about teaching, and about making art--we don’t know where we are going yet.” Artists include: Peter Bonner, Alexandra Rutsch Brock, Marta Cabral, Dionsio Cortes, Carlo D'Anselmi, Adrian Deva, Alanna Dunn, Anne Finkelstein, Andrew Fish, Celia Gerard, Gregory Gomez, Mary Hafeli, Fiona Halse, Vic Honigsfeld, Joseph Iacona, Leeah Joo, Melissa Joseph, Somayeh Kashi, Franziska Klotzler, Erin Koch Smith, Melanie Kozol, Judith Kruger, Eunji Lee, Bonnie Levine, William Low, Deborah Lutz, Karen McGarry, Samantha Melvin, Edmund Merricle, Brittany Miller, Patricia Miranda, Kayla Mohammadi, Katherine Mojzsis, Alan Montgomery, Indira Morre, Lotte Petricone, Jessica Poser, Lisa Pressman, Julia Rooney, Jo Ann Rothschild, Dena Schutzer, Reuben Sinha, Susan Stillman, Jamie Treacy, Deborah Winarski.

RLWindow - ONTOPO : ?Hablas Turista?
May 15, 2019 -- Aug 15, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce ONTOPO : ?Hablas Turista? organized by Jon Santos with sitespecific photographic window installations by Priscilla Jeong, Kamau Patton, and Amy Yao from May 15 to August 15. Performances by Keetin Mayakara, Juri Onuki, and Kamau Patton will take place during the opening reception and in the gallery space. The project is site responsive to RLWindow designed to engage High Line visitors and tourists through architecture, performance, and participation. The RLWindow can be viewed on the High Line at 26th Street overlooking the gallery. ONTOPO is an on-going series of performative and participatory projects based on collective creative exchange. The project reimagines the relationship between creating and consuming, author and audience, with a multi-faceted embrace of visual art, cuisine, design, sound, architecture, and performance. The project’s core is the willingness to experiment and the collective energy of contributing artists from different regions. Each site creates freedom from familiar constraints allowing for more present participation among artists and audience. ONTOPO : ?Hablas Turista? meaning “Do You Speak Tourist?” references a project Priscilla Jeong and Amy Yao created in Tulum, Mexico. They spontaneously assembled for recreation, contemplation, rest, artistic production, and performance. In this context, the artists’ surroundings and their temporary community informed the works. The artists reconsider their voices and modes of production outside their studio within the dynamic context of localism and tourism. Juri Onuki and Kamau Patton participated in the Magick City and Catskills Zen Do ONTOPO projects respectively. Collectively the artists’ experiences and works fold into the RLWindow site and project series.

Body/Object
Jul 11, 2019 -- Aug 23, 2019
Body/Object explores the diverse ways artists make use of the human body in their work. The exhibition includes paintings and drawings from the 1970s through the present, which eschew any traditional definition of ‘figurative’ in favor of the grotesque, abstracted and allegorical. Rather than directly representational, bodies appear in pieces, in flux, or as a stand-in for humanity as a whole. For artists such as Victoria Roth, Magalie Guerin and Elizabeth Murray, this is via a reduction of form and motion; while in works by Luis Cruz Azaceta, Peter Saul and Christina Ramberg there is a subversive objectification of the body. Franklin Williams and Michael Bauer take a psychological approach in their layered, textured paintings, while Gregory Gillespie and Maryan reach into more primal, spiritual aspects of the human experience. Opening Reception: Thu, Jul 11, 6-8pm.

“BEGIN AGAIN” FEATURING BROOKE SHADEN
Jun 13, 2019 -- Aug 31, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: “BEGIN AGAIN” FEATURING BROOKE SHADEN June 13-August 31, 2019 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 BEGIN AGAIN Imaginative, versatile, and a master of concept, Brooke Shaden is a fine art photographer specializing in staged photography that combines allegorical symbolism with personal narrative. Utilizing props as well as commonplace objects, Shaden transforms the world around her into compelling, intricate dreamscapes that combine the strange with the familiar. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by the artist at the gallery’s NYC location, focusing on a new body of work that explores notions of permanence, survival, as well as the classic theme of man versus nature. In her new series, Shaden portrays a dystopian future, emphasizing the improbable odds of humankind in the face of the vastness of nature. Yet despite some of the darker elements, the tone of Shaden’s new body of work maintains a sense of optimism and a playful lightness. Aptly titled, Begin Again depicts a rebirth of self. Alluding to a reimagined future, reevaluated preconceptions, and a reinvention of the artistic process, Shaden thoroughly explores the idea of renewal. Culminating in an expressive awakening, her photographs embody an alternate reality of surrealism and fantasy where the disturbing is made beautiful. Shaden’s definition of her medium is both candid and pragmatic. According to her, “fine art is simply defined as personal work, something you do for yourself.” This directness is evident in her approach, and enables her to fully immerse herself in her practice, creating stunningly surreal, compelling images rooted in personal investigation. Shaden’s surrealism is based in reality and filtered through personal experience. Tonally and thematically, the work is evocative of the drama, palette, and representations of the sublime in nature of late 18th century Romanticism. The impactful, alluringly disconcerting compositions are created through fundamental changes to everyday objects resulting in uncanny, extraordinary images and stories. Shaden shapes the world to her vision utilizing only natural, practical lighting, and builds the final image via a layering process. In past explorations, Shaden’s work has posed probing questions of our collective anxieties, dreams, and nightmares. The imagery is often allegorical as well as visceral, seductive, and instantly relatable. One of the main themes is the eternal struggle of survival, of human nature versus mother nature, of the fragility human life and endurance of the human spirit. Allusions to this classic theme abound throughout the work, evoking ancient stories, myths, and records on the subject of the human condition. In a famous quote from As You Like It by Shakespeare the state of the human condition is presented: “All the world’s a stage And all the men and women merely players.” In the same spirit, Shaden’s dreamscapes can be seen as fashioning of a new reality, a means of taking control of life’s uncertainties and anxieties. Brooke Shaden’s work 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.

Summer Gems
Jul 11, 2019 -- Sep 28, 2019
Art is inspired by nature, often elevated to greatness by its adaptation and heightened aesthetic. Nihonga creates from nature, using natural mineral pigments as the base for painting—part of a longstanding artistic tradition. Coming from a practice that is thousands of years old, with evidence remaining at sites such as Lascaux and Altamira, Nihonga embraces nature-derived color, transforming minerals onto materials such as washi (Japanese paper) and eginu (silk). “Summer Gems," hosted at the Sato Sakura Gallery, juxtaposes paintings by Nihonga artists alongside many of the world’s finest mineral specimens, in conjunction with Wilensky. The resulting duality of minerals alongside paintings is a celebration of contrasting color, light, balance, and composition.

Jil Weinstock, Amanda Manitach
Jul 27, 2019 -- Aug 23, 2019
Working in different media, both artists create purposeful patterns in their works through the arrangement of objects, lines, and text as a means to create symbolic narratives about identity and place. Jil Weinstock and Amanda Manitach explore language in their work, examining and playing with the shifting meaning of text as its context is changed or removed.

LINEAGE: Featuring MATT DEVINE, ANTHONY HUNTER, ADRIANA OLIVER
Nov 14, 2019 -- Dec 31, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: LINEAGE: Featuring MATT DEVINE, ANTHONY HUNTER, ADRIANA OLIVER WINTER 2019 Artists’ Reception: Thursday, November 14th, 2019 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by November 8th, 2019 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd Street | New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com LINEAGE JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, LINEAGE, an exhibition that focuses attention on the intersection of decorative and functional elements of contour and linear stylization. Addressing the fundamental component of the line within artistic composition, LINEAGE explores the possibilities of perspective, volume, and interaction of planes. Suggesting the line as both a fluid material and conceptual device, these artists highlight their ability to create works that uniquely define the space around them. Using divergent forms of display, artists Matt Devine, Anthony Hunter, and Adriana Oliver’s works compliment one another in color, form, and in their parallel explorations of linear gesture. Merging form and content, their linear constructions exemplify the expressive potential of line. Matt Devine’s sculptures explore lines as a pliable medium and point of departure. Emphasizing the use of line as multidimensional, Devine takes dissected pieces of sheet metal and transforms the industrial materials into organic patterns and shapes. As Devine works with aluminum, steel, and paint, he saves leftover pieces from earlier sculptures to generate the next step in his process, recycling and seamlessly transitioning to the next piece. His minimalist aesthetic and color palette serve to reinforce the strength of the forms, highlighting the inner balance and order within the works. Focusing on line to guide the compositions, Devine investigates the tensions of visual and psychological boundaries, as well the continuation of line through his fluid process. Anthony Hunter’s direct and physical engagement with his materials allows line and color to stand-alone and to function independently of form. Replete with lively and flickering lines, blobs, drips, and drizzles, Hunter creates a defined sense of movement and action. Infusing velocity and improvisation into the artistic process, the resulting linear marks tease the viewers’ eyes with their abrupt punctuations. Creating focal points, the line stylization reflects a tight rein, as he manages the flow with a practiced hand in his chosen, glossy oil-based medium. The contours of these areas, vividly contrasted against his other bold colors, look as much drawn as do the narrow, cursively shaped lines of paint. The resulting abstractions not only generate visual complexity, but the lilt of Hunter’s color and thrust of his line achieve pure graphic energy. With a sharp eye for shape and form, Adriana Oliver transforms familiar shapes into neutral forms open to interpretation. Challenging a traditional flat and rectangular format, Oliver blurs the lines between sculpture and painting. Pushing lines into a new, spatial realm, the cut-out shapes of her panels promote dimensionality while showcasing her beguiling use of color relationships. Working in a reductive palette, as well as simplified line-work, her imagery stands out with her minimalist approach to figuration. In her use of line, hue, intensity and value, the works attain depth and resonance, striking a perfect balance between message and form. These artists 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.
