Stephen Maine- Press Play – at ODETTA

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present their second solo exhibition in our new Chelsea location – Stephen Maine- Press Play with supporting artworks by Ryan Sarah Murphy as our Flat File Feature Artist.

Through humble materials, and an exploration into gravity and printmaking, Stephen Maine, in Press Play offers an updated approach to gestural abstraction. On a monumental scale, Maine creates a playful system of applying paint to canvas that is simultaneously performance, Rube Goldbergian engineering, and “blind painting.” Employing traditional printmaking skills, like developing a registration system for applying multiple layers of color, but on a gigantic scale, the plates obscure his view of what is actually happening on the canvas. The resulting color-rich abstractions offer surprising nuances and associations with landscape and science, while toggling between macro and micro perspectives. In contrast, Ryan Sarah Murphy’s abstractions, featured in our Flat Files, decidedly coax the found packaging materials to interact with one another in unexpected, yet lucid ways. The mass produced, tossed out, eye-candy-colored shards and planes move Murphy to develop a grammar that presents bridges, overpasses, subway lines… the urban landscape.

ODETTA’s FOUND OBJECT

Friday, January 18th, 2019
ODETTA is opening the new year with FOUND OBJECT.
The best found objects hold within them the thrill of discovery and instill wonder at their quirky beauty. Glimmering in a ditch or nearly obliterated on pounded pavement, these artists keep their cast-offs, raise them up and present them, for all to see what they would call beautiful. Through the dynamics of opposites: low, unwanted to exalted, transformed, artists Jo Confino, Diane Englander, Deanna Lee, Jane Sangerman, and Sylvia Schwartz see, a little more carefully, what shimmers and shines in world all around us, freely given.
Found Object is the fourth in a series of color-focused exhibitions held in 2018 – 19. ODETTA invited several artists, who would define themselves as colorists, to submit current portfolios for these shows. The exhibitions created from this call were Hot Stuff, January 2018, Mesmerize, September 2018, Las Gravitas, November/Dec 2018, and now Found Object. While color drives the artists to create, the subjects that emerge as narrative in their abstractions have a breadth that is breathtaking.
The Exhibition closes January 27, 2019.

Dataatadata: 3-sphere + Flat File Artists at ODETTA

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

ODETTA Gallery is pleased to share  Dataatadata: 3-sphere, is a sculptural installation and visual exploration of the universe and higher dimensional space — a minimalist artistic expression of profoundly complex concepts.  Touching on the idea of infinity and folded space, artists Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher employ materials using resin, acrylic, light and sound to create multi-dimensional references to form and space that seems both fluid and solid at the same time.

Their current series, Dataatadata, a play on Dadaism, centers on the beauty of information and the poetry of numbers, and how they can be used to express complex ideas in a visual and experiential way.

In addition to the sculptural installation in the main gallery, ODETTA will have works from artists Elizabeth Gourlay and Morgan O’Hara in their Flat Files and will hear about their process and conceptual development.

The exhibition is on-going through August 19th.  The Gallery will host an Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 29, 2018, at 3:00 pm with Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher and Flat File Artists Elizabeth Gourlay and Morgan O’Hara

 

 

ODETTA Gallery presents Curmudgeon

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

ODETTA Gallery feels that you can trust a curmudgeon. They’re some of their favorite people. Deep down, they’re tender-hearted. Gruff, stoic, humorous, and empathic. With pencil, sewn materials, kitsch, and word play the gallery’s curmudgeons explore unlikely materials to deliver their message. ODETTA hopes that visitors will come out and spend some time with their cranky artists and their work. You’ll more than likely share a laugh while taking in the view.

The exhibition features David Borawski, Carla Rae Johnson, and Rita Valley. As is their practice the gallery curates Flat Files. The featured artists are Patricia Dahlman and Gil Scullion.

The exhibition runs June 1 – July 1, 2018 with the opening reception on Friday, June 1, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk: Sunday, July 1, 3:00 pm  (Story Telling Performance with Suzanne Benton 4:30)
Special Event: Handwriting the Constitution- with Morgan O’Hara Sunday, June 17, 2-5 pm

ODETTA is pleased to present Linda Cunningham: Whose Land, Whose God?

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

ODETTA is pleased to present their third summer solo exhibition of a single monumental work of art.

Linda Cunningham: Whose Land, Whose God? will transform the gallery space with potent found remnants taken from the  Berlin Wall in 1989, stored since that time, and finally exhibited for the first time here in NYC. These artifacts will be integrated into a room-sized installation in Cunningham’s signature style with shredded drywall, photo transfers, a huge wood door, texts, and bronze gestural strokes cast from recycled military weapons.

Supporting the concepts raised in Linda’s work are works on paper by Jeanne Heifetz and Glendalys Medina in ODETTA’s curated flat files.

The show runs July 7- Aug 20, 2017.
Artist’s Reception, Thursday, July 13, 6-8 pm
Artist’s Talk, Sunday August 6, 3:00 pm
