Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents The Built Environment

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts  is pleased to present The Built Environment, a group show curated by Alyssa Alexander and Celeste Kaufman.

The relationship between artists and nature has been celebrated throughout history, with landscape painting and honoring the sublime often being at the forefront of respected art. Even with abstraction, references to the natural world are common. The urban landscape, however, has not been as extensively explored. The Built Environment is a collection of artists who are inspired by the manmade world. While working in abstraction, they incorporate elements of urban architecture, industrialization, and technology that occupy these spaces. Their use of line, color, and form are reminiscent of the geometry of the city, and their materials may be sourced from the city itself.

This show features the work of Luke Achterberg, Mary Didoardo, Joanne Freeman, Gudrun Mertes-Frady, Robert Walden and Noah Loesberg. It is ongoing through September 8, 2018.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents ECHOES – a group show

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Echoes, a group show of works that are manifestations of loss featuring artists Peter Hoffer, Sarah Irvin, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Ryan Sarah Murphy, and Dana Oldfather (Dana Oldfather, “Porch Lights On” above).

An echo, at its core, is a distant version of what it once was. A sound reverberates, then fades. It can be a haunting memory, or instill a sense of wonder. An echo can also be a reminiscence, a nod to something that came before it. The present echoes the past. It is not a perfect replication of it, but an acknowledgment of its heritage.

The works collected in this group show are echoes both in process and in concept. Their origins are transformed and concealed. The resulting piece appears to be its own entity, but still contains whispers of how it began. There is a loss of form, color, or imagery, but that does not detract from what remains. These artists are also investigating the loss of places, time, objects, and concepts as they create so that the work itself becomes an homage, an echo, to these distant sources.

On View November 30th – December 23rd, 2017

Humble Iterations: small scale works at Markel Fine Arts, until 23/Dec

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Humble Iterations, an ambitious group show of small-scale artwork. This show consists of gallery artists and a few guest artists who, while using a variety of sizes in their practice, also create small versions of their signature styles. Small, in this case, is loosely defined as paintings and works on paper that are under 20 inches at the largest dimension. In creating these, the artists pare down their visual vocabulary to the most important marks or motifs.

Artists included are as follows: Ky Anderson, Diane Ayott, Lisa Breslow (whose Summer Lights is shown above courtesy of Kathryn Markel), Mary Didoardo, Laura Fayer, Elizabeth Gilfilen, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Sydney Licht, Sara MacCulloch, Don Martiny, Martina Nehrling (whose work The Devil You Know is shown below courtesy of Kathryn Markel), Marilla Palmer, Nancy Rubens, Debra Smith, Josette Urso, Annie Wildey, and Tamar Zinn.
