Gemstone Masterpieces
Jan 09, 2020 -- Feb 21, 2020
Raw and untouched, minerals are occasionally unearthed as specimens of exceptional beauty and rarity. When used for ornament—as an intarsia box, a carved instrument, sculpture or a remarkable piece of jewelry—minerals are altered as faceted gemstones, which meet a maker, ultimately being transformed into works of art. Wilensky, the Chelsea gallery exhibiting the art of exquisite minerals, celebrates craftsmanship that turns nature’s marvels into the extraordinary. This winter, “Gemstone Masterpieces” debuts at the Wilensky Gallery on January 9th, 2020, running through February 21st, 2020. Featuring four world-renowned artisans, Paula Crevoshay, Manfred Wild, Nicolai Medvedev, and Naomi Sarna, each contemporary has mastered a gemstone medium, releasing an aesthetic vision from its mineral matrix.

Jan 16, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
The works in Wendy Small’s upcoming exhibition, Close to Home, are pulled from a series of photographs in which she documented the comfort and container of her own home.

Erik Hougen : Future Perfect
Jan 16, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
A motif often employed in Erik Hougen’s work is present here in the exhibition: Tektites. These black rocks are formed on earth under the extreme pressure and heat a meteorite exerts as it makes an impact. Throughout history, tektites and other black rocks have been perceived as mystical and as possessing some kind of power. Indeed, these rocks serve as a stark reminder of our existences fragile state. Hougen’s compositions take photographic elements from different sources and are blended in a nearly seamless manner. These unrelated images from the past have been composed to be perfect in the future. Opening Reception: Thu, Jan 16, 6-8pm.

Ana Tiscornia : Left, Right, and Center
Jan 25, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
Displacement, fissure, uncertainty, and repetition are constants in Ana Tiscornia's artistic practice. In her newest work, she seeks to unite the fortuitous and the precise: paintings on and of wood resembling demolished wall fragments and modernist house floorplans. This union activates perceptions of physical fragility and ideological failure. The use of architectural tools addresses the devastated space with the semantics of its own construction, mapping a sort of cartography of desolation and oblivion. Opening Reception: Thu, Sep 12, 6-8pm.

Jan 23, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
Billy Childish has created a body of work emblematic of his “radical traditionalist” approach. Pulling from themes found throughout art history—the bather, a lone figure in a landscape, a sunset—Childish presents intensely personal vignettes that feel archetypical, vibrating with the kinetic energy of a moment lived. Opening Reception: Thu, Jan 23, 6-8pm.

The Blues
Jan 28, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
The Painting Center presents The Blues, an exhibition that explores the multifaceted color of “Blue”. The curators, Lisa Pressman and Kathy Cantwell, both colorists, have chosen work done in a variety of styles, media and approaches to try to capture the mystery in this color. Blue is a primary, not secondary, color and is the Pantone color of 2020. We are celebrating blue in all of its associations and complexities. Blue is the only color that describes an emotional state as in melancholia or depression. We don’t say we feel red or green. We can feel blue. It’s a state of being. Conversely, it is known to calm the mind and body. The color blue can slow human metabolism and can produce a meditative effect. In nature, it is reflected in the sky, water, earth, and fire. It is associated with open spaces, intuition, imagination and inspiration. The Blues describes music, such as rhythm and blues, bluegrass and jazz. It is also associated with ideology like the democrats and blue states. “Blue has no dimension, it is beyond dimensions.” - Yves Klein The Blues artists are Christine Aaron, Dan Addington, Noa Bornstein, Linda Bradford, Rini Brakkee, Mona Brody, Holly Brown & Juan Manuel Gomez, Laura Charlton, David A.

Geraldo Perez is an American artist born in the Dominican Republic whose work arises out of his experiences of a vibrant New York City. Through his art Perez explores the realities of life and the human condition in relation to itself. His explorations deal with the capabilities of paint and surfaces, the “dance” of color and rhythm. His quest to organize through the application of paint is an exploration that tasks viewers to relate the images to their own lives as well as the collective experience. Artist Reception: Sat, Feb 1, 3-6pm.

Auguries of Innocence
Jan 23, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
Lately, we’ve been thinking about the artist and poet William Blake. He looms large over this moment. With his blockbuster show at the Tate Britain, he seems to be a fitting touchstone to highlight the new strain of Romanticism that runs through much of today’s figurative painting. The ten painters in this exhibition were presented with the idea of William Blake as an organizing principle. Blake’s poem, for which this show lifts its title, tracks the fate of innocence in a corrupt world. It provides a unifying context for a varied group of painters who depict deeply human figures emblematic of a world, like Blake’s, where vice sits side by side with virtue and mankind is on the verge of chaos. Artists: Cristina BanBan, Todd Bienvenu, Alison Blickle, Haley Josephs, Danica Lundy, Cristina de Miguel, Lamar Peterson, Jamea Richmond-Edwards, Orkideh Torabi, Kelli Williams. Opening Reception: Thu, Jan 23, 6-8pm.

Kathleen Craig | Sarah Lubin
Jan 09, 2020 -- Feb 22, 2020
Kathleen Craig creates landscapes and still-lifes inspired by observation and memory. Rendered with oil paint on canvas, Craig’s paintings explore the relationship between abstraction and representation. She captures the essence of her subjects—docked boats, vases of flowers, distant islands—through abbreviated forms and soft patches of color. Reflecting on her own work, Sarah Lubin states that “shapes become people, spaces flatten and expand, and time is suspended.” We can see clear examples of these elements in Lubin’s recent body of paintings, in which contemplative figures, decorative patterns, and abstracted interior spaces dominate her compositions. Her quiet paintings depict moments that are simultaneously familiar and uncanny. Opening Reception: Thu, Jan 9, 6-8pm.

The Legacy of Issei Suda (1940-2019): Human Memory
Jan 17, 2020 -- Feb 29, 2020
Issei Suda began his long and celebrated career in 1967 as a stage photographer of avant-garde Japanese theatre. His travels through Japan during the early 1970s inspired much of his work at the time and concentrated on street scenes. He discovered the random beauty of textures and patterns in nature, and of ordinary people in their everyday habitat. Throughout his career, Suda demonstrated an innate ability to show people as latent participants existing in the highly charged space between the ordinary and the extraordinary.

Juan Cortes: The View From Nowhere, opening Jan 16 at Nohra Haime Gallery
Jan 16, 2020 -- Feb 29, 2020
Colombian artist Juan Cortes explores the connection between art, science, and educational processes to visually translate our simple understanding of complex phenomena in the universe through sound, video and sculptural installations. This marks his first solo exhibition with Nohra Haime Gallery. The View from Nowhere references American philosopher Thomas Nagel’s idea that a united and global view of the world is impossible, that essentially, our view always starts from nowhere. Cortes uses his scientific upbringing and natural artistic abilities in this aptly named exhibition to illustrate humanity’s varying points of view on the mysterious forces of astronomical happenings in the universe. Comprised of 7 sculptural installations, or “translation machines”, he interprets vast concepts like dark matter and black holes into intelligible art on a micro scale. Each work references a particular scientific question in connection with authentic scientific research. In Variation 1, Cortes plays with the discovery that while black holes are known to absorb and destroy, they can also transform energy and exchange particles with white holes. This beautifully-crafted device uses colliding sound waves and LED lights that force small black “particles” to levitate in mid-air between two conical disc - one black, one white. The artist strives to break down an enormous and problematic occurrence into a perceivable phenomenon that can be observed with the human eye. In the tripod-like Variation 2, Cortes demonstrates the similarly impossible estimation of mapping the universe using scientific data downloaded from the internet. Events in the universe, such as solar flares, trigger a lamp inside the device that projects ethereal light patterns on the wall. While these situations are nearly impossible to truly replicate or translate on a small scale, the challenge of doing so is brilliant in its own way. Deciphering the greatness of our universe into an understandable scale is ambitious with humanity’s limited point of view. Each model proposes a tantalizing challenge to grasp something that cannot be grasped. We must accept that complex scientific questions cannot always be resolved, therefore allowing the line of understanding to become blurred in our “view from nowhere”. Born in 1989, Juan Cortes lives and works in Bogota, Colombia. An audiovisual artist and lecturer in Art and Audiovisual Media at the University of Los Andes, Colombia, Cortes works in the areas of research and interdisciplinary processes. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally, performing in institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; Center for the Arts (CMA), Madrid, Spain; Bilbao Exhibition Center, Spain; Fridman Gallery, New York; NYC Creative Tech Week; and Centquatre-Paris, France. He is cofounder and curator of the RADAR Video Art Festival and the SATELLITE Festival of Sound Art, and regularly works with the Hyphen-Hub space for artistic and community creation. He is the recipient of numerous awards such as the VII Bogota Prize for Alternative Art Spaces in Colombia and the prestigious PRAC Grant of the Ministry of Culture of Colombia. In 2016, he received an Honorary Mention in the CERN Collide International Prize, which is awarded as part of CERN’s Art and Science program, Art at CERN.

Photographs from the Collection of Steven Gelston
Jan 09, 2020 -- Feb 29, 2020
ClampArt is pleased to present “Photographs from the Collection of Steven Gelston,” an exhibition of exclusively black-and-white prints of nearly all male figurative imagery collected over the past thirty-five years. Steven Gelston grew up surrounded by art. His parents were intelligent and curious collectors of art who purchased works by largely living artists of their own generation still within attainable means. The collection came to include pieces by artists such as Josef Albers, Red Grooms, Philip Guston, Barnett Newman, Claes Oldenburg, and Larry Rivers, among many others. Gelston’s parents possessed strong aesthetic tastes and enjoyed researching the artists who caught their attention. Gelston’s mother led art tours for other women in the community through the museums and galleries of Manhattan. She also organized the annual art show in her town, which included works by often very well-established figures. Eventually she pursued her master’s degree in art education at New York University and went on to teach elementary school art classes. After retiring, she worked as a docent at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Gelston’s family’s appreciation for art and artists rubbed off, and his first purchase of art for himself was an impressive, signed, limited-edition Claes Oldenberg print which he acquired while still an undergraduate at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. The sophisticated and playful conceptual print graced the walls of his dormitory room. Eventually Gelston began collecting WWI and WWII posters (combing his love for history), but his first acquisition of a photograph would not be until 1985 during a trip to Key West, Florida. There he acquired two prints by an artist named Chuck Pearson, and it was then that his passion was unleashed. Slowly and thoughtfully, Gelston began researching and buying photographs of primarily male subjects by living artists of the day. Not at all a trophy hunter going after the biggest and most recognizable names, Gelston instead followed his eye and purchased works to which he responded personally. After years of assembling his collection of photographs, a friend pointed out the fact that the faces of all of the models were cropped out, turned away, or otherwise obscured. After that time with this in mind, Gelston knowingly acquired a photograph titled “Ivan Ivankov, Gymnast, Belarus” by the then up-and-coming artistic duo Anderson & Low, which pictures a shirtless athlete looking up at the lens of the artists’ camera with his arm reaching across just the lower half of his face. Amusingly, Steven Gelston likely will cringe at all of the attention paid to him, but ClampArt’s exhibition is meant to honor his true appreciation of art and his ongoing support of young, developing artists who rely on such generous patronage. Gelston is passing on the baton of custodianship for these wonderful works of art, and it is now an opportunity for others to live with and care for the photographs he lovingly singled out for his own enjoyment over the course of many years. The exhibition includes prints by now well-known photographers such as Anderson & Low, Bill Costa, Wouter Deruytter, Jim French, David Halliday, Annie Leibovitz, Harriet Leibowitz, Blake Little, Dianora Niccolini, Len Prince, Karin Rosenthal, and Joe Ziolkowski, in addition to younger practitioners including John Kenny and Sebastian Perinotti. | Opening reception: Thursday, January 9, 2020 – 6:00-8:00 p.m. | 247 West 29th Street, Ground Floor, New York, NY 10001

Jack Balas | Checkered Passed
Jan 09, 2020 -- Feb 29, 2020
ClampArt is pleased to announce “Jack Balas | Checkered Passed”—the artist’s first solo show with the gallery, and his third solo exhibition in New York City. Jack Balas is an artist whose work primarily includes painting, drawing, and photography, often incorporating extensive textual elements. After earning BFA and MFA degrees in sculpture from Northern Illinois University, Balas moved from the Chicago area to Los Angeles, where he first worked as a cross-country art shipper, driving between Los Angeles and New York on a route that regularly took him through the western landscapes that have come to define much of his work. Eventually moving away from sculpture entirely, Balas began producing paintings of athletic young men annotated and layered with numbers, anecdotes, and other disparate elements that offer a depiction of idealized masculinity in America through the lens of the artist’s personal experiences, as well as a contemporary counterpoint to the art-historical archetype of the female nude. In reference to “Checkered Passed (Tied) (#1574),” the artist writes: “’Checkered Passed (Tied) (#1574)’ is a painting that touches on race and all of the discussions and controversy in the United States these days. The black model has a white arm and the white model has a black arm. Visually thus, they are tied to one another (my original title for the painting was ‘Tied’). Further, note the lines literally tying the two models together. However, there is certainly a lot of wordplay going on. Being in a race is one thing, and tying instead of winning is another. The checkered flag signifies the winner in a race. Here the winning flag has been passed to the black model, which is literally pictured in the image. And, the whole history of race in this country is a sordid (i.e. checkered) past. In my mind the words and the image keep going around in circles—in a great way, and in an optimistic way as well. (It’s about time.)” Indeed—words, stories, and memories are an integral element of much of Balas’s paintings and works on paper. In his monumental canvas “The Wall (La Pared), Nogales (No Puedo Decir Esto) (#1588),” the artist begins at the bottom left: “In Nogales, I walk across the border with no passport, and no one in Mexico is there to ask who I am. . .” Living between Denver, Colorado and Tucson, Arizona, Balas is witness to the realities and hardships related to race which have been brought to the fore especially in recent years. Nonetheless, many of the themes running through Balas’s work touch upon his development as an artist [“This Time Around (#1237)”]; art history and the politics of the art world [“Roy Lichtenstein (#1694)” from the artist’s “Muse/Museum” series]; and (queer) sexuality [“First Draft (#1707)”]. A 1995 recipient of an Individual Fellowship in Painting from the National Endowment for the Arts, Balas is now represented in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Denver Art Museum, Colorado; the Tucson Museum of Art, Arizona; the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Iowa; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, California; the 21c Museum, Louisville, Kentucky; the Albuquerque Museum, New Mexico; and the Usiminas Cultural Institute, Ipatinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil; among others. | Opening reception: Thursday, January 9, 2020 – 6:00-8:00 p.m. | 247 West 29th Street, Ground Floor, New York, NY 10001

Sandy Skoglund: Winter
Jan 09, 2020 -- Mar 07, 2020
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce Winter, an exhibition of new work by the conceptual photographer Sandy Skoglund. Winter—ten years in the making—is a multifaceted project that includes sculpture, installation, and photography. Portions of Skoglund’s immersive tableau will be on view in the gallery, along with its final photographic iteration. Skoglund describes Winter as “a study in perseverance and persistence, an artificial landscape celebrating the beautiful and frightening qualities of the coldest season.” In the photographic image, a man, woman, and child punctuate an icy blue scene. They are inside of an iceberg, perhaps, surrounded by its craggy walls. Standing pensive with hands in the pockets of their winter coats, only the child, a red-headed girl, looks out toward the viewer. The trio is joined in this fantastical setting by a cluster of three snowflake-emblazoned owls and a female figure that seems to have frozen mid-slumber. The imagery evolved from Skoglund’s interest in similarity and difference among snowflakes. Her fascination with the appearance of correspondence versus the reality of difference extends from earlier investigations of the liminal territory between the natural and the artificial, or order and chaos. Through her constructed imagery, Skoglund explores the space between what the human eye and the camera can see. Since the late 1970s, Skoglund has been celebrated for her panoramic installations—entire environments that she meticulously designs, constructs, and then re-visualizes photographically. Skoglund likens Winter to “a very slow shutter speed on a camera. Time stands still but also inches forward.” Relentlessly inventive, Skoglund challenges herself to experiment with new creative technologies, always in search of the medium best suited for her message. For Winter, which was part of a larger project on the four seasons, years of experimenting with various forms of clay modeling and 3D-printing led to the ultimate inclusion of digitally-cut metal snowflakes bearing ultraviolet cured ink, and the computer-sculpted figure and owls. A selection of photographs from the 1970s and 1980s, including Radioactive Cats (1980), will also be on view.

Kyung Tae Kim: Semantic Net
Jan 28, 2020 -- Mar 21, 2020
Kyung Tae Kim’s works are presented in the form of multiple unit frames and expressed with various visual expression techniques that were introduced throughout the history of art. They are symbolic visualization of objects that possess meanings to the artist and objectification of his memories, desires, and various emotions associated with the objects. The images shown in Kim’s works are a visual recording or a history of the artist himself that deals with complex feelings in life such as positive and negative thoughts, reality and imagination, consciousness and unconsciousness, desire and hope. Throughout the history of art, countless visual expression methods with unique characteristics have been introduced as a result of the development and experiment of various media. However, in a general sense, an artist expresses his or her thoughts and emotion based on one main visual expression method on a single canvas. Kim feels that such expression structure is somewhat limited when attempting to freely express his thoughts and emotions in our current contemporary environment of complex and multi-layered structures. In this regard, Kim reveals his personal stories and inner flowing thoughts and emotions that cannot be explained in words through the form of multiple frame structures and various visual expression techniques from illusionistic expression to minimalistic expression, and from painting, drawing, photography to digital media.

Alberto Alejandro Rodriguez - Destruktion
Feb 13, 2020 -- Mar 21, 2020
Destruktion is a project presenting painting, sculpture, and artist books by Alberto Alejandro Rodriguez all centered on the different forms that ruins can take in modern society. Not simply as partially or completely destroyed architecture but as a changing structure woven into the urban fabric, a byproduct of indifference as humans reflexively think and interact with the space around them. The series of works in Destruktion highlight the consequences for today’s society, both negative from a practical point of view and positive from a poetic point of view. “Destruktion” a term coined by Heidegger that influenced Jacques Derrida’s philosophy of Deconstruction, refers to dismantling a phenomenon in order to analyze and comprehend it. Every concept has a deconstructable metaphysical aspect.

Purvis Young - Under a Concrete Sky
Feb 06, 2020 -- Mar 21, 2020
Davidson Gallery presents Under a Concrete Sky, an exhibition of work from acclaimed painter Purvis Young. The show title references the Miami neighborhood of Overtown, a predominantly black, low-income neighborhood where Young lived, worked, and was a community fixture until his death in 2010. So named for the interstate that was constructed over the area in the 1960s, Overtown was as important to Young as he was to his neighborhood. It is impossible to separate the artist from the district – despite creating work that referenced national and even global issues, Young was decidedly of and for Overtown, befriending its denizens and becoming its de facto artist-in-residence. This show – the first for Young at Davidson Gallery – represents a wide range of such subjects, including pregnant women, cities and cars, horses, boats, and slave imagery. The works were all acquired directly from the artist in the 1990s and 2000s. Young was an extraordinarily prolific painter who was entirely self-taught. Despite never even attending high school, his references to canonical art history are undeniable, and his lack of formal education was hardly a limiting factor. Young devoted himself entirely and obsessively to painting, using whatever materials were at hand, including plywood, vinyl siding, furniture, and signs. Despite a tumultuous professional career which left him virtually destitute at the time of his death, his work has been recognized and collected by many of the country’s most respected institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and LACMA, to name but a few.

The exhibition tests the various sensorial interactions between the spectator and the exhibition; including interactions with other spectators, the artist, his associates, individual works and a combination of other variables. Kolker uses his painterly-photographic-process called ‘synthese’ to colorize a recursion of abstract dot patterns layered over a figural portrait of Martin Buber, the author of I and Thou and proponent of a philosophy which connects the universe through hyphenated existential relationships such as I-Thou and I-It.

Beyond the Stars
Feb 13, 2020 -- Mar 28, 2020
BEYOND THE STARS JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Beyond The Stars, an exhibition of new work by artist collective Cascione & Lusciov at the gallery’s New York location. Comprised of Silvia Cascione and Roman Lusciov, the duo’s new body of sculptural work explores both hardwired and au courant notions of form, line, and the romantic associations tied to outer space. The exhibition title, Beyond The Stars, invites multi-faceted connections between the origin of life and futuristic dimension, while visually translating the immateriality of space and time into streamlined, biomorphic forms. Conceptually focused on objects in motion, their installations, which often involve kinetic sculptures, draw parallels between the sensation of forward propulsion and an unknown, abstract future. Conflating the solidity of their materials with the appearance of a fluid, liquid state, the relationship between volume and space is explored in each sculpture. Channeling the transformations of a star’s shape and color throughout its lifetime, Cascione & Lusciov demonstrate an understanding of how sculpture can serve as a tool of expression for different realities of life. Each work made entirely by hand and unique, the successful manipulation of physical materials such as bronze, steel, and acrylic mirror show an unprecedented sensitivity to the qualities of each medium. Combining clean lines of modernist aesthetics, highly reflective, metallic surfaces paired with organic forms amplify a sense of emotion and dynamicity. Heavily influenced by minimalist and neo-futurist movements, Cascione & Lusciov appropriate techniques from sculpture, design, and goldsmithing within their practice. Modernizing a traditional lost-wax process of bronze casting that can be traced back 6,000 years, the methodology produces poetic juxtaposition between the ancient process and the completed futuristic forms. Stripped of all unnecessary elements, soft curves create a succession of roundness, yielding slick, aerodynamic sculptures. Inspired by the words of Italian astrophysicist Margherita Hack, “All the matter we are made of was built by the stars… So we are truly children of the stars,” Cascione & Lusciov’s sculptures exhibit a belief that with the help of the arts, science and technology can achieve rapid advancement. In that sense, their art is a vision of the future; a vision represented through pure shape, innovative technique, and interdisciplinary collaboration. SILVIA CASCIONE (b. 1979, Milan, Italy) received a BA in Sculpture from Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Italy in 2004, after which she studied Fashion Design at Politecnico di Milano and worked as a designer for several Italian fashion houses. Silvia is also trained in goldsmith’s art and wax modeling. ROMAN LUSCIOV (b. 1983, Izhevsk, Russia) studied at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania, and graduated from the European Institute of Design in 2006. He subsequently worked in the fields of architecture, industrial and interior design.

THE BACK ROOM: Featuring AMERICA MARTIN, MARY FINLAYSON, ELLEN VON WIEGAND, ADRIANA OLIVER, GREG MILLER + ANNA KINCAIDE
Jan 01, 2020 -- Apr 17, 2020
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: THE BACK ROOM: Featuring AMERICA MARTIN, MARY FINLAYSON, ELLEN VON WIEGAND, ADRIANA OLIVER, GREG MILLER + ANNA KINCAIDE WINTER/SPRING 2020 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 Jan. 17 – Apr. 1 THE BACK ROOM JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, The Back Room, a group exhibition that celebrates the seduction and drama of entering a gallery’s private, back room. An exploration into past and upcoming shows, the works in The Back Room celebrates the art world’s unique ritual of inviting preferred patrons to view the gallery’s exclusive inventory. Including works by America Martin, Mary Finlayson, Ellen Von Wiegand, Adriana Oliver, Greg Miller, and Anna Kincaide, all artists hold distinctive sensibilities in subject matter and concept, yet are linked through an expressive formal approach. In a collaborative effort in bringing the abstract and figurative arts together, the featured artists showcase the extensive visual influences of pop culture. Colombian-American artist America Martin continues her examination of humanist themes through figurative abstraction and powerful, raw elements of color and line. Scenes of everyday life that link the body to the continuity of nature permeate her work, captured through her depictions of the human form, animals, and florals. Martin continually redefines her oeuvre through new material considerations, continuing the ubiquitous theme of human nature and our relationships with the physical world. Mary Finlayson’s interest in painting interior spaces portrays how environments reveal identity. Navigating the themes of intimacy, memory, and self, Finlayson’s gouache paintings reflect the vulnerable narratives unveiled through ownership of possessions. Flattening the perspective of each scene, her still lifes provide a voyeuristic glimpse in to each curated space. Ellen Von Wiegand’s linocuts reverberate with a quest for self-assurance and serenity as she uses her own nude body within her stylized prints. Featuring a distinctive use of line to establish composition, her silhouettes and their environments are incised with delicate contours that reinforce dimensionality. Highlighting structural and decorative elements with patterned line, texture, and opaque blocks of color, Von Wiegand’s intent and approach renders the works poetic, vulnerable, and highly personal. With a sharp eye for shape and form, Adriana Oliver transforms familiar shapes into neutral forms open to interpretation. 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. 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. Incorporating elements of fashion photography and contemporary socio-cultural emblems of status and identity, Anna Kincaide’s figures define the separation between body and mind. Headless and bursting forth with florals, her figures showcase the idea of ambiguity between our bodies, identities, and thoughts. 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.

Ben Shitrit and Takele both play against the experience of being “othered” to deliver genuine portrayals of everyday life and nuanced responses to the injustices and violence they’ve experienced or observed. Opening Reception: Thu, Jan 30, 6-8:30pm.

Mercer Street
Feb 06, 2020 -- Apr 25, 2020
The exhibition brings together a selection of work spanning five decades, by four pioneering artists, created in and around a shared space in Lower Manhattan. Residents and neighbors of Mercer Street from the mid-1970s, the women featured here, among a larger group of neighborhood innovative thinkers and initiators, were then and remain now, crucial to capturing the history and creative development of New York’s downtown community. Marcia Hafif, Joan Jonas, Shigeko Kubota and Jackie Winsor offer a critical cross section of painting, sculpture, performance, photography and film, that marks each artist’s singular artistic approach and process; initially linked by common physical space, ultimately realized by a rigorous feminist ethic that stands apart, in its proficiency and innovative resiliency.

Feb 06, 2020 -- May 02, 2020
Under One Roof is an exhibition about commodification, domesticity, private and public selves, and the blurred boundary between furniture design and art.

Artists included are John Baldessari, Jonathan Borofsky, Frank Gehry, Robert Gober, Philip Guston, Ann Hamilton, Jasper Johns, Edward and Nancy Kienholz, Roy Lichtenstein, Elizabeth Murray, Bruce Nauman, Ken Price, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, and Richard Tuttle.

Guo Hongwei : Pareidolia
Mar 03, 2020 -- Apr 04, 2020
For the re-emergence of his investigation of watercolor after several years in which he concentrated on oil painting, Guo has gathered the individual works under the general heading of Pareidolia, a technical term that refers to the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, for example seeing shapes in clouds, and seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns. A widely known example of this phenomenon is the Rorschach inkblot test. This tendency is often manifested in the composition of Guo Hongwei’s watercolors, as he intuitively arranges his subjects into rows and patterns. Opening Reception: Thu, Jun 7, 6pm.

Antonio Lopez
Mar 05, 2020 -- Apr 25, 2020
Antonio Lopez’s career skyrocketed throughout the mid-1960s spiraling upwards through the nation's newspapers, magazines, and department stores. As part of the international "youthquake", Lopez seized the opportunity to revolutionize an industry still mired in a mid-20th century "Anglo-Caucasian myopia” and was among the very first to introduce people of color as models, pioneering a new American multiculturalism that had yet to hit the mainstream media.

Sally Brody : A Personal View
Mar 10, 2020 -- Mar 28, 2020
Sally Brody : When I start a painting, I take a look at the plants, flowers, the jugs, pitchers, and vases that I live with. Some I love, some not so much. I draw my subjects in charcoal and fix them on canvas with a brush and mineral spirits. Then, using oil paint and brushes I begin a dialogue with color and space, push and pull. In two dimensions it is a dance, working out relationships on the canvas with space and color. The canvas becomes a puzzle to be solved. Often difficult but also exciting. Sometimes satisfying. Always completely engaging.
