The exhibition coincides with the 50th anniversary of Pino Pascali's passing. In Daily Unfamiliar, diverse generations of Italian artists converge as a result of their bridged interest in the transcendental and evocative qualities of everyday objects, materials, and physical transformations. Through varying practices and visual languages, the artists aim to elevate familiar aspects of daily life while translating them into artworks that are catalysts of energy and time. Objects and habits that were once usual to us, now seem strange and unfamiliar. Opening Reception: Thu, Apr 26, 6-8pm.

Night, Shortly
Jun 09, 2018 -- Jul 27, 2018
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Night, Shortly a group exhibition organized by Halsey McKay Gallery featuring Colby Bird, Anne-Lise Coste, Chris Duncan, Rachel Foullon, Joseph Hart and Brie Ruais opening 6 to 8 PM Saturday 9 June. These artists employ sculpture, drawing, painting, photography and hybrids of all, to make complex artworks that allude to the psychological and physical effects of time, the body, and the entropic nature of organic, terrestrial matter. While the works are tinged with melancholy, the artists reflect informed and hopeful views of the surrounding world. The show acts as an uncynical reflection of the times that celebrate the dogged making of physical things. The exhibition’s title is borrowed from a sundial motto inscription, one of many that Chris Duncan has sewn into black fabric and placed on his studio roof for a six-month period. These works continue Duncan’s ongoing exploration of the sun as metaphor, inspiration and subject. The stitched fabric absorbs ultraviolet rays, rain, and windblown particles over time and employs the celestial body as fabricator. Without the use of dye, emulsion or any intentionally manipulated chemical process, tightly detailed imagery emerges through time and creates a sun-bleached exposure. Once harvested, the thread is cut and removed, allowing the scrunched fabric to flatten and reveal the ghostly appropriated messages. In Colby Bird’s work, the photographic image, here a fruit bowl in a Buddhist temple, becomes a cipher more than a subject. The ornate construction of the frame, the forced-mirroring of the viewer, the object-ness of the photo itself–all of these act in unison to encourage a holistic reading of the works on display. The dark prints topped with glass, combined with the gallery’s overhead lighting, create a mirroring effect, serving to put the viewer “on stage” both inside and outside of the work. Built-in to the reverse side of the work is a tableau of imagined daily activities of the Platonic ideal of “the artist”: casual painting, leisurely reading, and reflective writing. Anne-Lise Coste’s paintings have the immediacy of graffiti and allow her to express subjective moods mixed with political criticism. Her dada-influenced language and intensely lyrical images exude irony, rebellion and emotion. She creates seemingly straightforward compositions that actually offer us a catalogue of contemporary anxieties. Her Bones paintings act as a kind of Rorschach as she cites “these bones that in 2001 Space Odyssey are shown to be the tool of the creator or destroyer. These bones that float in Georgia O’Keefe paintings. These bones seem to cut sharply to the center of something that is keenly alive in the desert even though it is vast and empty and untouchable... And knows no kindness with all its beauty.” Brie Ruais’ ceramic sculptures embody a transition from action to outcome and they begin with a list of limitations. These controls, determine the weight of the material, the action, the time, and the basic shape of her works. She begins with her body weight in clay and then confronts it in a highly physical process that involves kneeling, kicking, spreading, scraping, and skimming. The body operates as a conduit for receiving and communicating messages that escape the limitations of our material and social reality. As a result, clay and body collapse as subject and material merge. Clay has the ability to address conceptions of the internal body and the body of the earth it is in this space that her work reflects on the history of shared repression and exploitation of the environment. Ruais’ Craters simultaneously look inward towards primordial movement, outward towards the land, and center on the undeniability of traumatized bodies. Joseph Hart’s oversized drawings reflect his physical size and nudge the gestures toward the figurative. The door-like ratio of these lyrical compositions is determined by the artist’s wingspan. His deft line marks reach from top-to-bottom, and left-to-right depending on the positioning of the paper. Drawing is crucially important within the ecosystem of Hart’s studio practice. With the humble materials of graphite and paper, he is able to ignore the pressures of painting, play with line and boundaries, tempo, and be more impulsive and reactionary, which he remarks as a “gratifying way of moving and thinking”. Rachel Foullon’s Threshold revolves around the form of a braid. Constructed from dozens of strands of hand-dyed cotton drawcord pulled across a stained cedar frame, Foullon expands on the timeless personal hair sculpture to yield haptic associations. For the artist, the braid is a systematized style of control, a handle, a tail, a vulnerability and a permission. Trunk, alludes to the body’s natural system of replenishment and renewal. Hand-dyed rope resembling the vena cava and aorta weave through pleated linen and cedar as if to supply the work with its own rationale, enabling its continued existence. The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM, with Summer hours Monday to Friday 10 AM – 6 PM starting 30 June.

GROUP SHOW / # (hashtag)
Jun 29, 2018 -- Jul 28, 2018
GROUP SHOW / # JUNE 29 - JULY 28, 2018 OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JUNE 29, 6-9 PM GALLERY HOURS: Thursday - Saturday, 12-6pm Meno Parkas Gallery (Kaunas, Lithuania) and Sla307 Art Space (New York, New York) presents # (hashtag), a joint exhibition opening on Friday, June 29th at Sla307 Art Space. The exhibition runs from June 29th to July 28th. The title, # (hashtag) serves as a marker that promotes the extraction of moments from the unstoppable stream of time. It encourages a keen focus on what is important and to stay in touch, while fixating on the flashes of clarity and awareness. Hashtags (#) of the artists’ works begin to overlap, causing an extension of meaning and an introduction to new directions. The artworks selected for this exhibition represent a research process and search for a method rather than art production in modern vernacular. Presented artists: AGNE JONKUTE (LT), ANGELA OKAJIMA-KEMPINAS (USA), AUSRA ANDZIULYTE (LT), ROBERTAS ANTINIS (LT) If asked, Robertas Antinis would say, “perhaps process will never end.” Once, artist was told by his father, Robertas Antinis, (also renowned sculptor and very important figure in Lithuanian art history) to stop at some point and begin to embody the idea. But rather, Robertas Junior is interested in the creative processes. He is constantly researching his own fields of experience and that of others’. He is earnestly determined to never become the slave of pure aesthetics. He is dedicated to experimenting with materials, forms, as well as teasing and provoking his viewers. His creative work is quite often connected with language and meanings of terms. That is something in common with Angela Okajima-Kempinas. She is a ceramic artist gaining inspiration from the semantics of language and writing signs (in the Verse-a-tile series). Angela‘s conceptual works are made with brilliant, but not self-purposeful craftsmanship and glowingly clean esthetics, such as the white exclamation marks, which in a former incarnation were floral petals but in this instance, take the form of a human connection sign. Ausra Andziulyte is a painter in every sense. From her life philosophy, perception, to her artwork, she continues her ongoing search for the special light sliding down the landscape. Her use of ripples of red and rust in her paintings are not depictions, but rather symbols taking root in nature. Ausra allows viewers to decode her work in their own manner. Agne Jonkute also is interested in the use of light, not only in its image-revealing feature but on its physical effect. Light and time have become her paint and brushes. Agne allows landscapes to imprint themselves on a paper. She chooses minimalistic, ecologic, environment, and human attitudes towards her creative work, using as little intervention as possible to allow life to flow in its own way.These artists from different backgrounds and generations sit on the commonalities of contemplation and introspection, which brings forth questions of their constantly changing self, the analysis of signs, notions being born, and keeping to one’s individual method of identifying and capturing their self-moments in today‘s rapidly changing world. /sla307.com/

Paul Calendrillo New York is proud to announce the initial solo exhibition of J Regina Davis who will present a collection of work in diverse media and size that give rise to our different stages of mind. The purpose behind this particular collection of paintings is to recreate small windows of existence recurring from a psychological landscape to that of the intellectual and emotional. In this particular body of work, Regina focuses on the idea of eternal bliss, or perhaps the illusion thereof, versus the thorny injuries wrought by time and experience. She focuses on paintings that profoundly announce symbolic narratives of human nature and act as a testament to our existence in the presence of a larger spiritual reality. The viewer may find, from the realist cloud-scape, an alluring search for spirituality to the surrealism of a world of fantasy hidden under our beds all conveying the paradoxical premise in which life is composed: Reality and fantasy, surrealism and fear, psyche and spiritualism. All of this is inspired and ignited by a single questioning of our experience in existence as a whole. With this symbolic approach to painting, the work forces introspection by the viewer and takes on a different perspective as if reflected on an emotional mirror. At the end, it is the details that make life a whole. As Regina mentions on a recent interview: I do not attempt to recreate the ultimate physical reality, but the unconscious reality – to emphasize intense emotion as an authentic source of aesthetic psychological experience, and placing emphasis on the sublimity of beauty by juxtaposing it with symbolic representation of nature and that of the ultimate human need to believe in something that is beyond ourselves, as a source of hope and consolation, whilst dealing with the dramatic experience of life itself.

URBAN FLORA: Featuring Penelope Gottlieb, Anna Kincaide + Greg Miller
May 10, 2018 -- Jul 31, 2018
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: URBAN FLORA: Featuring Penelope Gottlieb, Anna Kincaide + Greg Miller Spring 2018 Artists’ Reception: Thursday, May 10th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by May 1st, 2018 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 Urban Flora Life and growth often find a home in the unlikeliest places. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition that juxtaposes urban grit with the delicacy of flora, highlighting the often surprising congruities in the beauty of both. Much of the motifs in art and design are borrowed from the natural world in which the processes of regeneration, life and decay are in constant flux and motion. An especially important part of this framework is the flora, or the particular plants of a region, habitat or geographical area which are as diverse, unique and localized as the constitution and customs of any urban population. Artists Penelope Gottlieb, Anna Kincaide, and Greg Miller are artists whose work addresses this intersection between the beauty of nature and the ethos of urbanity. Penelope Gottlieb’s paintings on paper, panel and canvas are a rich riot of color and texture that engage the senses while also commentating on the destructive nature of urban development. Featuring representations of various lost species, the works are also part of an ongoing project by the artist that explores themes of environmentalism and the global ecological crisis. These highly detailed renderings present a tapestry of various plants and flowers that vibrate with energy, seemingly on the verge of breaking through the compositional plane. Based on the artist’s own imaginings as well as historical accounts, the images are deceptively decorative, providing endless complexities in concept and composition on subsequent investigation. Anna Kincaide’s fantastical works in oil on canvas juxtapose a minimalist, tonal approach to the figure with bountiful, bursting bouquets of botanical topiary rendered in a dazzling array of color. Kincaide pays equal attention to the sleek, sinuous lines of the human form, as to the layered, organic forms of the flora. These surreal dreamscapes are reminiscent of studio portraits in format and styling, paying homage to the tradition of portraiture. Borrowing inspiration from fashion and design history, Kincaide’s work explores anonymity and transformation as well as contemporary socio-cultural signposts of status and identity. Greg Miller’s mixed media works are instantly recognizable, drawing on his specific cultural lens and Californian roots. Fragility, nostalgia, as well as the fleeting nature of cultural ephemera and collective memory are explored in works that effortlessly blend familiar imagery of the golden age of print media into new narratives. Miller’s visual collages are an amalgamation of grit and texture, the layers a visual representation of the destruction rendered by the passage of time. In Miller’s newest body of work, floral elements add a new framework of meaning in his exploration of memory and social history. 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!

The Ideal Feminine/The Feminine Ideal?
May 23, 2018 -- Jul 31, 2018
The Ideal Feminine/The Feminine Ideal? Group Show Curated by Natasha Schlesinger May 23rd – July 31st, 2018 Opening Reception with the artists Wednesday, May 23rd, 6-8pm “The body is the instrument of our hold on the world.” ? Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex The current political and cultural climate has refocused the world’s attention on the female body, the abuse it has suffered as well as the strength within every woman that defies historical prejudice and injustice. Barbara Kruger’s battle cry: “Your Body Is a Battleground” has never been truer. What has changed is that we are no longer content to simply offer our coy laments about the treatment of women by men in power. Perhaps for the first time in history, women are banding together, speaking out, using the legal system to bring their abusers to stand public trials, supporting one another as we move forward to a new era of feminism, equality and a future where our daughters will no longer feel afraid and be treated on par with their male counterparts. What is the role, the power, the future of the female body? What is the ideal feminine? This show proposes to use the gallery as a platform to examine the way artists, mostly female, sees the female body as the ideal feminine. Can a female body be an ideal? What is that feminine ideal? Does it exist? Does it attract, repel, and exhibit strength, weakness? What are our expectations for the feminine ideal? Twelve artists have been invited to participate in the Ideal Feminine? show, each dealing with the notion of the female form in an individual way through a variety of materials, techniques, styles and interpretations. Stephanie Hirsch, Sissi Farassat and Zoe Buckman use materials often associated with woman’s work such as embroidery and beads to express their femininity and expand the notion of craft through their artistic process. Hirsch covers her work entirely with beads, creating a sort of protective skin on top of the sculptures. Her works present a decorative visual appeal but also a calm and resolute toughness. Sissi Farassat photographs women’s bodies, including her own, as a first step of the artistic process. She then laboriously hand embroiders thread and beads on top of the photograph, thus extending the singular moment of a photographic snapshot into a lengthy and time consuming embellishment period, evoking the historic craft form associated with women. Zoe Buckman boldly takes on the subject of feminism through appropriation of objects as varied as boxing gloves and mannequin legs to change the course of the dialogue and highlight uncomfortable truths while proposing her version of what the future holds. On stockings, Buckman hand-embroiders hip-hop lyrics that jarringly juxtapose misogyny and liberal ideas inherent in pop culture to this day. Jen Ray and Jessica Lichtenstein both challenge the patriarchal system by presenting a world where women exist as warriors, amazons, frolicking maidens in a female-dominant environment oblivious that life can be led in any other way. Jen Ray, a multimedia artist and performer, arms her warrior women with flower-encrusted porcelain battle axes and sends them to stand strong, independent and unwavering against any omnipotent male-dominated system. Jessica Lichtenstein activates and releases her female protagonists to populate their own idealistic natural world, filling every tree, lake and field, and replacing the leaves and flowers with their figures unabashedly enjoying this liberated existence. Her wall sculptures in acrylic, metal-leaf and lacquer hark back to the past and evoke some fantasy landscapes conceived by male artists, but make no mistake Lichtensteins’ girls exist and flourish only on their own terms. Margeaux Walter and Lala Abaddon both use photography to express what it means to capture their own female body, to be a woman, and to use performance as a means for individual expression. Walter photographs herself performing various actions, experiencing environments she creates, and questioning the meaning of existence. Abaddon performs, photographs and weaves the photographed images into a complex tapestry of sorts that evokes the original performance and the body but also abstracts the action and the form. Abaddon’s work is transformative both for the way it translates her own experience through the performance and the way that action becomes embodied in photographed and sculptured works. Abaddon will also create an original performance during the show wrapping herself into a cocoon and capturing her naked form inside the self-made structure. Rachel Lee Hovnanian and Natasha Law present the female form as sculpted and painted ideals but from very different points of view. Rachel Hovnanian is a multi-media artist reflecting on the current culture, assessing and engaging with its standards and norms. Hovnanians poignancy lies in her uncanny ability to take the most obvious truisms and turn them on their head with humor and brilliant re-contextualization. For the current show, Hovnanian will have two sculptural works that question the nature of the female body norms artificially conceived and by which women are still being judged to this day both in the media and throughout popular culture. On the other hand, the British painter Natasha Law paints women’s bodies in their casual, relaxed and intimate state. Though anonymous, the bodies she captures in the midst of undressing or simply bending over are those of her girlfriends and the gaze is that of a female artist. Her women are sexy without being sexualized. The three male artists in the show have been invited to share in their own perspective on the significance of the female form. Todd Murphy gathers found materials, particularly those from the natural world such as flowers or twigs to compose female dress forms he sculpts and photographs. These feminine shapes are poetic and fairy-tale like asking the viewer to suspend reality and imagine a dress made for a princess, a goddess, a fairy, a dancer or the woman of his ideal feminine. Marc Dennis’s hyperrealist painting done in the Old Master technique of artists such as Carravagio, embraces subjects as diverse as still-life to tattooed divas and portraits of powerful gallerists. But for the current show, Dennis presents paintings of two young women, one seen frontally and one from the back of her head and neck. The paintings are so realistic the viewer can mistake them for photographs however they are also authentic and honest in their embrace of female beauty and strength as seen through a man’s gaze. Sebastiaan Bremer utilizes both photography and painting in his work. Each photograph in the exhibition is uniquely enhanced by tiny ink droplets that reimagine images of the female bodies, initially captured in a fragment of a moment. Bremer either uses his own photographed figures or images derived from his art historical predecessors, such as Pablo Picasso. He reinterprets the image, creating a different tone that tackles the ideas of a central female protagonist in a dreamlike world.

The Nature of Things: Contemporary Japanese Woven Sculpture
Jun 14, 2018 -- Aug 03, 2018
Six years ago Chizu Sekiguchi, contemporary basket maker and teacher, created an exhibit for us called Contained Excitement. We are thrilled that she has agreed to organize another exhibition for us this summer of contemporary Japanese woven sculpture. Sekiguchi-san chose these second, third, and fourth generation artists who are breaking away from traditional bamboo forms, using materials ranging from palm fronds, kudzu fiber, and leaf skeletons, to wire, industrial plastic sheets and paper masking tape. As in the first exhibition, some of the artists in The Nature of Things were inspired by, or were students of Chizu Sekiguchi. She was inspired by Hisako Sekijima (not in the show) who came to the United States in the late 70s. Once here, she was motivated by Ed Rossbach, John McQueen and Kay Sekimachi, some of the artists recognized as bringing the woven basket form into the arena of contemporary art. This exhibition falls snugly into our program of exploring the alchemical connection between the artist and the natural world, as a vehicle of present day animism.  Even those works made of non-natural materials are commentaries on the rhythms, textures, and the artists’ deep personal responses to place, plants, environments, and the sacred spaces contained within vessels and enclosed forms. They subtly reveal their secrets. The artists have wrestled and changed those natural forms, abstracting them into exquisite small sculptures that reference Nature and yet transform it as well.  Sometimes it seems the hand naturally organizes and weaves materials together as a form of contemplative meditation.   In this exhibition most of the basket form has moved beyond function. The earliest forms of mankinds weavings were probably containers and textiles. Their forms evolved with culture for thousands of years, ultimately transforming from utilitarian objects to objects made for arts sake. None are as simple as they might seem.  Their complexity comes from the human element in their conceptions, and the human satisfaction in the range of their multiple forms.   The artists included are: Chiaki Dosho, Michiko Fukai, Shoko Fukuda, Kakuko Ishii, Ritsuko Jinnouchi, Mieko Kawase, Yukari Kikuchi, Peke Kimura, Yohko Kubo, Yoshie Maejima, Hiroko Okuno, Chizu Sekiguchi, Haruko Sugawara, Shizuko Takahashi, Michiko Tamura, Toshiko Uchino, Makiko Wakisaka, and Amayokasim Yamamoto For additional information please contact info@cavinmorris.com or call us at 212-226-3768.

There is No There There: MFA in Communication Design Exhibition
Jul 12, 2018 -- Aug 09, 2018
Opening Thursday July 12 at 6:00 pm! The digital illustrations in Alexandra Wong’s exhibition explore the shift between ‘nostalgia’ defined as a longing for a physical place and a place in time that can no longer be reached – in this case, the 1990s. What does this shift mean for the identity of the Millennial generation? They were born in an analog era and reached adulthood in a digital one. How does this change influence the way in which they direct their buying power and, in turn, how they are being marketed to? Join us for the opening or visit the gallery throughout the month of July to see these prints!

The Painting Center is pleased to present Chain Reaction in the Main Gallery and Project Room. This exhibition introduces a novel idea in curation by asking each Painting Center member to invite artists from their respective community to show one work. Chain Reaction explores those selections and its progression with various similarities and disparities consequential of the chain reaction. In their curated selections, members brought together a broad range of artists each with their own distinct studio practice. By combining more than 100 artists working in diverse styles and media, a chain reaction is created between selected artists, members, and viewers who experience the exhibition. A subliminal connection takes place between artists working in community, and this dialogue sparks new dynamics and visual concepts. Artists include: Rebecca Allan, Claudine Anrather, Mary Anne Arntzen, Liz Atlas, Len Bellinger, Henry Bermudez, Pamela Blum, Cole Bourgeois, Alexi Brock, Mona Brody, Petey Brown, Eric Brown, Kenneth Browne, Steven Cabral, Melissa Capasso, Marc Cheetham, Bryan Christie, Rachel Citrino, Hallie Cohen, Sarah DAmbrosio, Kevin Daly, Michael David, Susan A.

Much of this political expression took shape through individual and collective presentation - in fashion, music, and dance - something made palpable in Sidibe's rhythmic compositions.

In Her Hands
Jun 14, 2018 -- Aug 17, 2018
Robert Mann Gallery is pleased to present In Her Hands, a group show curated by Orly Cogan and Julie Peppito. This exhibition comes at a unique and timely period in history. Women in art and politics find themselves on parallel roads facing the urgent need to assert that we are all connected and embrace empowerment over traditional male systems of dominant power, where all humans regardless of gender, race or class will benefit. This exhibition will focus on combining craft materials, that define the powerful domestic history of feminine art forms, with portraits of progressive women candidates who are running in the 2018 elections, including Cynthia Nixon, Elizabeth Warren and Maxine Waters. Cogan and Peppito understand that “by curating a show that elevates women in art and politics, it asserts that women’s work, which has historically referred to undervalued activities like cooking, child care and sewing, are extremely valuable but are also only a part of what women’s work means today.” Conceptually the show inspires female artists to create work that highlights other women who are working to advance their communities, their country, and the world by opposing the patriarchal system that typically uses force, domination, and division to exert control. Among the fifteen artists, Alice Beasley uses her quilting to express her pride for strong courageous woman in politics championing progressive causes that benefits their community and support those struggling to have their voices heard. Maria De Los Angeles, a DACA recipient whose future is directly affected by what happens in our political system, shows how participation in social change comes in different forms. For her, creating something beautiful to inform and educate the audience is her way of participating in the conversation given that she does not have the right to vote in the United States. Jane Waggoner Deschner’s work stitches together snapshots that provide insight into the life of a candidate, which normally seems so far removed from ones own because of a modern day culture that is plagued by surface level headlines. She reminds the viewer of our shared humanity through found family photographs and hand-embroidered quotations that show we are more alike than different. With an exhibition that empowers both female artists and candidates in the moment of #metoo, #timesup, and #blacklivesmatter, In Her Hands is a reflection of the rise of women voices around the world that exemplifies the inclusiveness of true feminist power, and that it is most definitely, here to stay. Orly Cogan, born in Jaffa, Israel, has been at the forefront of the fiber arts movement using mediums including embroidery, painting, and drawing creating work that explores feminism, domesticity, and the constantly changing role of women in society. She studied at The Cooper Union and received her BFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art. Julie Peppito, born in Oklahoma, combines three-dimensional collage, quilts, botanical illustration and Americana that blurs the traditional boundaries between high and low art. She received her BFA from The Cooper Union and MFA from Alfred University. In Her Hands features work by Alice Beasley, Orly Cogan, Laurel Garcia Colvin, Maria De Los Angeles, Jane Waggoner Deschner, Susan Graham, Kate Kretz, Jess Larson, Diane Meyer, Marilyn Artus, Julie Peppito, Leisa Rich, Alicia Ross, Rebecca Siemering, Melissa Zexter

Personae: Portraits of Personal Fiction
Jun 21, 2018 -- Aug 30, 2018
PERSONAE: Portraits of Personal Fiction Opening Reception: June 21, 2018 6-9pm I By Appointment Only June 22 – August 30 For hours and appointments contact Carlos David at carlos@carlosdavid.org or 917-392-5219 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: OZANEAUX ArtSpace is pleased to host “Personae – Portraits of Personal Fiction”, a socially engaged photography project by Artist Carlos David, curated by Miguel Rivera. Creating an open stage for transformation, expression, and experimentation, Carlos David searches for ‘fiction within one’s reality’, inviting artists, teachers, firefighters, and others from his local community, to ‘re-present’ themselves or their alter ego. These New York participants dressed up in creative costume and makeup, and with full freedom of expression, were encouraged to become various fictional characters of their imagination. Over the course of twelve months, David worked with a crew of creative professionals, including hair and makeup specialists, to realize an eclectic mix of nearly 100 characters, ranging from superheroes, to mythical creatures and fetishists, offering us a glimpse into New York’s collective subconscious. This team included Art Director: Elliott Ortiz, Makeup Artists: Engelina Wibowo and Olga Subach, Hair Stylists Jason Linkow and Francesca Maria, among others. Carlos David is a Self-Taught Mexican Photographer who lives and works in New York City. Before falling in love with photography, David studied Hispanic Literature and worked as a ghostwriter for many years. His passion for taking portraits has evolved into regular collaborations with fashion and business magazines. He regularly photographs for Friends of the High Line, and conducts several photography workshops in New York City. The first viewing of PERSONAE, a solo exhibition at El Barrio’s ArtSpace, PS109 Galley, in New York City, marked the first solo exhibition of David’s career. www.carlosdavid.org

“ENDLESS SUMMER” Featuring Danny Galieote
Jun 14, 2018 -- Aug 31, 2018
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: “ENDLESS SUMMER” Featuring Danny Galieote Summer 2018 Artist’s Reception: Thursday, June 14th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by June 7th, 2018 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 ENDLESS SUMMER Danny Galieote has a propensity for capturing the quintessentials of Americana in works that blend realist narratives with a pop sensibility. The works are reminiscent of classic, vintage postcard imagery with an undercurrent of poetic, and often surprising, juxtaposition. The stylistic effect is a blend between the old-school charm of Norman Rockwell, with the unexpected twist of surrealist Rene Magritte. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Danny Galieote with a focus on iconic American summertime scenes. Galieote belongs to a group of contemporary artists and writers that are part of a revitalized interest in American regionalist history and art. The American Regionalist art movement rose in the 1930s as a response to the Great Depression and was defined by a traditionalist realist style that appealed to popular American sensibilities of the time. The movement gave rise to a subsequent proliferation of realist art, making a lasting impact as a style that bridged academic realism with American Modernism, breaking American realist art away from the European tradition. Danny Galieote’s masterfully rendered paintings tie the stylistic and thematic trends of the Regionalists to contemporary socio-cultural themes. Rendered in a faded, tonal palette, Galieote builds his compositions with references to classic Americana, presenting quotidian scenes of American life. Focusing on the figure, Galieote sets his compositions in the the iconic decades of mid-century America, incorporating whimsical elements with modern social concerns. Many of the scenes include psychological elements such as hints at the inner, intrusive thoughts of the figures, imbuing the light hearted imagery with deeper connotations and illuminating timeless truths of the dualities of human nature. A California native, Galieote began his art career in Disney animation studios, where he was a top animator for films such as the Lion King and Tarzan as a character artist, honing his skill at hand drawing and the human figure. Well versed in art history, Galieote’s influences include Renaissance masters such as Michelangelo, Rubens, and the Mannerist Jacopo Pontormo as well as American realist painter George Bellows and other AshCan artists. Galieote’s work has been widely exhibited across the U.S., with numerous works in prestigious international collections. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles. Danny Galieote’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!

We are the subject: MODEL • ARBUS • SOLOMON
Jul 12, 2018 -- Sep 08, 2018
Bruce Silverstein Gallery is pleased to present “We are the subject”, an exhibition featuring the work of Lisette Model, Diane Arbus and Rosalind Fox Solomon. Harnessing the photographic medium, each of these legendary artists have sought tirelessly to investigate their place in the world, making countless inquiries into their own existences. Although they have each emerged from a distinct time and place, they are consistent in their dogged exploration of the human condition. Perhaps even more evident when presented alongside one another, their work shares a concern with extending the boundaries of the self, seeking their own humanity.

Summer Group Show IV with Onishi Project
Jul 23, 2018 -- Aug 03, 2018
SUMMER GROUP SHOW IV Date: July 23rd - August 3rd, 2018 Opening: Thursday, July 26, 5:30-7:30pm Location: Onishi Gallery, 521 W 26th Street, New York, NY 10001 Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 10:30am-5:30pm Onishi Project is pleased to announce our fourth of a series of summer group shows for this year from July 23rd to August 3rd with the opening reception on July 26th from 5:30 - 7:30pm. This group features six international artists: Armando Sebastian, Kengo Kanda, Matei Vogel, Rita BasuMallick, Sarah Elyse Granetz and James McCormick. Armando Sebastian was born in Monterrey, Mexico. Not quite a decade ago, Sebastian decided to begin his career anew as an artist in Dallas, Texas, where he now resides. Manga, folk art, and 18th-century painting inform and inspire his work. His paintings represent a fusion of religious iconography and magical realism. Kengo Kanda, born and raised in Hiroshima, Japan. His work was exhibited at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and had his first solo exhibition at Kobun Gallery, Tokyo in 2016. Kanda also obtained his medical license and graduated from Medical Department of National University in 2006 and began his career as a plastic surgeon in 2008. Matei Vogel was born in 1985 in Winterthur, Switzerland where he currently lives and works. Matei discovered his passion for the visual arts after returning from an international music competition in Italy in 2008, passing by the city of Florence where he had a unique encounter with some of the great and influential local artists. Today, he works with the Japanese pianist Masaru Yoshitake. They have met each other in Berlin in 2014, when they started a first collaboration. In 2016, Matei was appointed to work in an atelier of an ancient industrial building in Winterthur, followed by an intense and creative period. Rita BasuMallick born in India, and now a New Yorker for over a decade, Rita has traveled all through her life, lived across cities and has internalized different ways of living. She trained in painting at New York University and works in acrylic, oil and charcoal. Her paintings are expressions of the way she sees life - a harmony of emotions, cultures and nature. Rita also obtained a CPA license from New York State and graduated from NYU Stern School of Business with an MBA in Finance. Sarah Elyse Granetz grew up in Wilton, Connecticut and currently lives in New York, New York. She received her B.A. in Fine Arts from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. During this time, Sarah studied in Paris, France. What began as a “self portrait” assignment has transformed into My Body Is Not For Sale, a meditative series on the female form through literal impressions of the artist’s actual body. Sarah also works as a fashion stylist and is currently pursuing an MBA from American University. James McCormick was born in Long Island, New York from an Italian and Irish heritage. He is a licensed physician who holds a Master’s in Business Administration from Pepperdine University. Turning his attention to his passion in photography, Jim’s portfolio is diverse stemming from his conventional earlier works to exploring and defining a new art domain which is abstract photography. His core materials are glass, oils, inks, and air. Using these materials, he has captured inventive vibrant images. He finds a quiet peacefulness in this art that takes the viewer to curious and introspective moments of reflection. His unconventional use of the camera lets him capture fluid movement of inanimate materials which creates these dramatic images. For more information on the exhibition, please contact Dannie Pierce at 212-695-8035, or by email at dpierce@onishigallery.com.

The Built Environment
Aug 03, 2018 -- Sep 08, 2018
The relationship between artists and nature has been celebrated throughout history, with landscape painting and honoring the sublime often being at the forefront of respected art. Even with abstraction, references to the natural world are common. The urban landscape, however, has not been as extensively explored. The Built Environment is a collection of artists who are inspired by the manmade world featuring Luke Achterberg, Mary Didoardo, Joanne Freeman, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Noah Loesberg, and Gurdrun Mertes-Frady. While working in abstraction, they incorporate elements of urban architecture, industrialization, and technology that occupy these spaces. Their use of line, color, and form are reminiscent of the geometry of the city, and their materials may be sourced from the city itself.

Aug 13, 2018 -- Aug 29, 2018
New York, NY, June 28, 2018 – FIRST STREET GALLERY is pleased to announce Narrating the Haitian Story, a solo exhibition of selected works created by renowned Haitian artist Fritz St Jean. Fritz St Jean (1954 – 2017) is known for his dramatic use of bold colors, fine lines, and incredible details on canvas. This exhibition will feature works that aptly capture the complexities of Haiti’s socio-political climate, dynamic history, and the humanity of its people. It will run from August 13-29, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, August 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. Born in Port Au Prince, Fritz St Jean (1954 - 2017) emerged as one of Haitis most illustrious artists. Initially, his style consisted of painting animal and jungle scenes on canvas. However, in 1980, St. Jean broke away from that style to memorialize his hopes and dreams for Haiti through his paintings. Being widely viewed as socio-political commentaries on the dichotomous realities of Haitian life, St. Jeans paintings transport the viewer to scenes of mysticism, idealism, and humanity all in one. This pivotal point in his career reflected his feelings about his homeland, where his patriotism and dedication to Haiti never wavered. St Jean often said, “Everything I paint comes from inside of me. There is no superficiality. I feel like I’m an ambassador for Haiti when I paint.” He consistently depicted Haiti in a light that celebrated the country without hiding the issues it faced. For that reason, his work explored topics such as Haiti’s historic moments, political unrest, natural disasters, immigration issues, religion, dreams for a utopian Haitian society, and more. Suffice it to say, Haiti was the source of St Jean’s inspiration. Fritz St Jean had many notable achievements throughout his artistic career. Some of his most well known works were featured in the critically acclaimed exhibition “The Sacred Arts of Haitian Voodoo” at the American Museum of Natural History in 1998. Additionally, his work has been published in art books and displayed in notable exhibitions at a variety of art institutions around the world.

HALF NAKED: Featuring RAY TURNER
Sep 13, 2018 -- Nov 03, 2018
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: HALF NAKED: Featuring RAY TURNER FALL 2018 Artist’s Reception: Thursday, September 13th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by September 1st, 2018 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 HALF NAKED Half-Naked adjective | half·na·ked  1. being without clothing or covering nude: 2. bare of any covering, overlying matter, vegetation, foliage, or the like: naked fields. 3. bare, stripped, or destitute: The trees were suddenly naked of leaves. 4. without the customary covering, container, or protection: a naked sword a naked flame. 5. without carpets, hangings, or furnishings, as rooms or walls. 6. unassisted by a microscope, telescope, or other instrument: visible to the naked eye. Origin of Naked: Middle English Old English before 900 Middle English naked(e), old English nacod cognate with Dutch naakt, German nackt, Gothic naqths akin to Old Norse nakinn, Latin nudus, Greek gymnos, Sanskrit nagnas Ray Turner’s work presents a duality between a forceful primality in his treatment of material, and a more cerebral retrospection of the range of human emotion that the work holds within. In Turner’s earlier series, the concept of identity was explored through the act of transformation through active participation, in the space between observer and observed as the work became an active channel. In his new work, Turner has put his emphasis on the physicality of the mark making process itself as a means of representation, further breaching the boundaries of the traditional modes of portraiture. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Half Naked, a showing of Turner’s most recent paintings and prints focused on exploring the dichotomies behind the idiom “half-naked” that powerfully echoes our own discomfort when confronted with the illusions of safety behind all social constructs through the viscerality of the painting medium. In Half Naked, Turner takes his explorations into the emotive potential of the portrait to the next level, as he presents a group of works that refuse to be categorized by exclusion. From work to work, Turner presents a didactic deconstruction of the visual semantics behind recognizability of form through a parsing of the gray space of the half-formed, half-naked. The representational qualities of the works rely on Turner’s mastery of form and the vast range of human facial expression. Through slightest suggestions, Turner is able to utilize the properties of his medium to create images that capture and attune to emotional states. Created as an organic process of fluid, painterly malleability, the paintings are reminiscent of the dextrous exaggerations of Francis Bacon, the mastery of form and the grotesque of Francisco Goya, and the wide, luscious strokes of John Singer Sargent. The new body of work further explores the concept of identity through materiality and the idea of formation by utilizing materials that emphasize the painting process such as translucent mylar, acetate, vellum, and duralene. Chance, discovery, and intentionality are an integral part of Turner’s working process as he experiments with new elements such as the semi-opaqueness of mylar and duralene - materials he was initially inspired to use through the study of old anatomy illustrations. Assembly and display as part of the presentation process are another important step in Turner’s methodology as a point of visual guidance via juxtaposition. RAY TURNER (b. 1958, Stockton, California) lives and works in Pasadena, California where he earned his BFA from Art Center College of Design. His work has been showcased in exhibits throughout the country as well as in museums and galleries in San Francisco, New York, Miami, Chicago, Boston, and Berlin. Ray Turner’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!

CONCRETE JUNGLE: Featuring John “CRASH” Matos
Nov 08, 2018 -- Dec 31, 2018
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents:?CONCRETE JUNGLE: Featuring John “CRASH” Matos Fall/Winter 2018 Artist Reception: Thursday, November 8th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by November 1st, 2018 ?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 CRASH Iconic, sleek and smooth, the visual style of John “CRASH” Matos resounds with a singular, signature vibrancy. Throughout his almost four decade career, CRASH’s work has engaged with environments on a huge scale - ranging from his early murals on the sides of NYC subway trains in the 70’s, to more recent projects such as a large mural commission at Miami’s Hard Rock Football Stadium. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present the artist’s new body of work that continues this conversation around scope, scale, and environment, through a continued exploration of the spray paint medium. CRASH’s radiant, fluorescent palette cements his work firmly in the present as the artist works within a dialogue culled from classic pop culture, comic book and print references. A frequent collaborator, CRASH’s process is rooted within his identity as a Bronx-born graffiti artist, having come of age in the hip-hop fueled Bronx of the late 1970s. His distinct style made him an iconic part of the NYC visual landscape, while also pioneering a new age for graffiti in 1980 when he curated the pivotal “Graffiti Art Success for America” exhibition at Fashion MODA. In his new work he widens the scope in a gestural exploration of form and shape, with a continuously unfolding narrative that plays out over each surface, barely contained to the planes of the canvas. Whether on city streets or gallery walls, concrete or canvas, CRASH’s works are instantly recognizable. Continuously engaged in various projects and commissions his work is also part of numerous museum shows, with works in many permanent museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Brooklyn Museum (New York), Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (Scottsdale), and Stedeljik Museum (Amsterdam). CRASH’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!
