qUiRk curated by Fran Shalom at Markel Fine Arts

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Markel Fine Arts is please present, “!qUiRk”  a group show curated by Fran Shalom. The origin of the word “quirk” is unknown, but when it first appeared in the 16th century it referred particularly to a sudden twist, turn or curve, particularly in writing or drawing, later acquiring the specific sense of a “flourish” in writing or drawing. Using a variety of media – knitted yarn, clay, old photographs, ceramics & paint – the works of many of the seventeen artists represented in !qUiRk materially involve turns, curves, three-dimensional twists, sudden deviations, swirls and flourishes.

The exhibit features  work by Laylah Ali, Tom Butler, Mary Carlson, Jennifer Coates, Elisa D’Arrigo, Barbara Friedman, Teri Hackett, Catherine Harggerty, Judith Linares, Dennis Kardon, Andrew Masullo, Nat Meade, Marcy Rosenblatt, Caroline Wells Chandler, Daniel Wiener, Mie Yim, and Charles Yuen.

No Longer Supported at the Sara Nightingale Gallery through April 19th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present, No Longer Supported. The exhibition will run through April 19.

The software you use daily and rely upon has been deprecated. It is no longer safe to use, and its imminent obsolescence includes an upgrade that purports to improve your life, but is actually designed to enhance the spyware, obfuscate your metadata, and make you even more dependent. The transition will be cumbersome and time consuming. But do you really have a choice?

Rather than assembling a group of artists who are concentrating on the demise of traditional painting supports – torn, shredded or punctured canvasses, exposed stretcher bars, paintings hung backwards, oddly shaped canvases, painting as sculpture, etc… this exhibition will focus on works that address time as a subject, or are time-sensitive. The omitted torn canvasses, however, serve as a metaphorical backdrop. Support systems and structures we were once accustomed to are failing us. Infrastructure, government, technology and nature, rather than sturdy pillars on which we can depend, now seem like mere scaffolding. All have been unpredictable and unruly of late. The exhibition features: Bonnie Rychlak, Darlene Charneco, Maggie Simonelli, Barbara Friedman, and Christa Maiwald

  A percentage of proceeds from sales will be donated to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp.  Mail your donation to: PO Box 2725, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.
