Juliet Martin – You Don’t Look Crazy at Ivy Brown Gallery

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

Ivy Brown invites you to glimpse the mind and explore the work of Juliet Martin in her first solo exhibition at Ivy Brown Gallery

“You Don’t Look Crazy” uses Juliet’s experiences with bipolar disorder to discuss greater issues surrounding mental illness. ‘I am a different person when I am depressed, manic, or anxious.’Juliet Martin makes her viewers see the message beyond the joke. Her satiric memoirs illustrate personal stories with playful forms, painful punchlines, and caustic visual one-liners. Why fiber? Weaving fabric physically and mentally attaches her to her canvas. Her process is surprisingly improvised. Decisions are made as the shuttle moves across the threads.

If you look in my eyes, they are taken over by moods. You cannot see me. I’m not there. – Juliet Martin

Tuesday, November 19, 6-8pm Artist talk with Juliet Martin on her current exhibit ‘You Don’t Look Crazy’

Exhibition Dates: October 29-November 29

Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening at Ivy Brown Gallery

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery invites you to explore the mystery and intrigue behind Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening Tuesday, September 10, 6-8pm.

Few know that the origins of the Bermuda Triangle myth began in New York City on a triangular piece of land that eventually became the foundation of the Triangle Building in the Meatpacking District.

Mystery and intrigue has long surrounded the Triangle Building, but the truly fantastical stories pre-date the building by thousands of years to the time of the ancient Aurora-Rhomans. Joshua Goode is currently excavating the ruins of a pre-historic zoo deep below the foundations of the Triangle Building that held creatures believed to live solely in the imagination. Majestic bronze sculptures of these mythical creatures and ornate altarpieces were left as prayer offerings which also included ritual human sacrifice.  (more…)

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Transcendence by artist Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence a new series to open the imagination and provide an intermission from the ordeals of life. This series combines the spontaneous nature of Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s free hand Cut Work technique with the unique color blends of master silkscreen artist Gary Lichtenstein. The cut work and silkscreen processes share a relationship of unconscious energy resulting in unexpected visual dynamic.

Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s Cut Work series is an evolving exploration of emotion and movement using free hand scalpel cut multilayered imagery. The layers make space for shadows to fall and move with the vibration of life where the imperfection is the perfection. There are no expectations, only discovery.

The image is determined in the top layer of paper. There are no guides or planned drawings. An adhesive is added under the top layer followed by another layer of paper, this layer is cut…the process continues creating multiple layers while folding in the color blend to accelerate the velocity of the image.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 6-8

Artist Q&A: Tuesday, September 25, 6-8pm

Exhibition is from September 12th – October 17th.

Prism at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery proudly presents Prism, New York-based artists Kelly Bugden and Van Wifvat’s first collaborative show.

The artistic collaboration has produced a thought-provoking body of sculptures, paintings, and constructions. Nature, childhood memories, and everyday archetypes take shape in unexpected combinations of materials. The works emerged as the tactile and visual senses channeled the ritualistic power and materiality of selected artifacts.

The resulting objects exist in a space between what they were originally and what they could become. A wheel, for example, is distorted as if seen through a prism. Their collaboration grew out of years of shaping materials into one-of-a-kind objects. Intuitively, the process of creating with their hands took an inward turn. Prism is a travelogue through memories and dreams, yielding abstract forms that capture moments of transformation.

Exhibition runs from July 10th-August 15th.

‘Whispers’ by Angelica Bergamini at the Ivy Brown Gallery through June 21st

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery presents ‘Whispers’ by Angelica Bergamini, this is her second solo exhibit at the gallery.

“Our present existence is just a cosmic blink. I am trying to hear the beat of the cosmos within myself, the primordial force, to sense the interconnectedness with nature, with all the powers and energies of the universe. To go beyond a sense of separation and to be able to cherish the universality that is implied by our interdependence. Inspired by the times in which the Great Mother was the Great Cosmic Soul (“At the very dawn of religion, God was a woman. Do you remember?- Merlin Stone), I contemplate on the origins of being which connect us across borders, cultures, ethnicities, and religions. Meditating on the original place of origin, reaching for our roots within the cosmos allows me to rediscover and worship our oneness while reconnecting myself to a sense of the infinite. Because beyond the roots of earthly life, we are all immersed in a living universe, in a cosmic placenta.” -Angelica Bergamini

 

“One of the functions of mythology is to present an image of the cosmos in such a way that it becomes the carrier of the mystical realization, so every time you look at it, the walls of space and time open out into the deep dimension of mystery, which is a dimension within ourselves, as well out there” – Joseph Campbell.
