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…)

A Circle of Friends by Paul Wirhun at Ivy Brown Gallery

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery celebrates the Easter season with the opening of ‘A Circle of Friends’ by Paul Wirhun. Wirhun explores the emotional roller coaster of loss and the changes it brings. “Death is the ultimate change; we leave behind all we knew and experienced and enter the Unknown.  For those left behind, the death of a loved one can reveal a host of emotions linked to the memories of the dearly departed. To explore this range of experience, I discovered these “skullys” – images based in Tibetan iconography – to be a perfect vehicle. Found in the crowns of protective (demonic) deities, these crazed-looking skulls force us to face the unimaginable with irrational delight. How DO we handle the complex emotions elicited by our experiences of mortality and loss of dear ones seemingly gone forever? How do we keep alive strong bonds of caring and support, when a beloved has died?” This show intends to explore these feelings through a series of drawings, eggshell collages, and objets d’ouef.
PAUL WIRHUN has been working on and with eggshells most of his life, using these organic spherical surfaces to produce innovative objets d’ouef, and broken shells to create collages and eggshell encrusted sculptures. His mastery of these materials comes from a life-long interest in exploring the range of possible expressions in this unique media.
Exhibition runs April 2nd – April 27th
