Susan English Periphery at Kathryn Markel Fine Art

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its latest solo exhibition of recent paintings by Susan English. At the core of this new body of work are the ideas of space, boundaries, and perception. The periphery is defined as the outer limit or the edge of a place or an object – a dropping off point. English is drawn to the expansive spaces where the horizon is seen as an edge, one that might be perceived only indirectly or unconsciously. The works range of color represents an intersection of the inside and the outside, as well as the limits of color. How far can green be pushed before it becomes blue? How many infinite directions can you push a brown or a gray or a white? A vibrancy and subtle hum of energy is created in the peripheral area between hues, and in the moments where the color is it’s most concentrated. The exploration of space both conscious and subconscious, where the known meets the unknown is a driving force behind the work in Periphery.

Exhibition ongoing through May 4th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Nancy Cohen’s Force: Observations from the Interior

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Nancy Cohen – Force: Observations from the Interior March 28th – May 4th, 2019. In this most recent body of work, Nancy Cohen continues her exploration of waterways and their human like existence – persevering under constant adversity from outside forces. The imagery derives from memories of particular landscapes Cohen has encountered. Of them, the Samana Bay in the Dominican Republic and the tides of Eastport, Maine, have left a lasting impression on Cohen and are the driving force behind this series. Samana Bay, and a good portion of the Dominican Republic’s natural landscape, has seen the devastating effects of pollution and industry, devastation Cohen witnessed first hand.

Where to find AWAD Member Galleries During Armory Arts Week

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

The Association of Women Art Dealers members are a resilient and flexible lot. Those who were scheduled to show with VOLTA have each successfully landed at an alternative venue after the sudden cancellation of the art fair.

Susan Eley of Susan Eley Fine Art will be at Art on Paper. She had this to say about the experience:

“While I was incredibly disappointed, I do understand why MMPI made the choice to cancel VOLTA in order to keep ARMORY in tact. And in response, VOLTA has acted as well as they could have, professionally and with integrity. We were happy to secure a booth at Art on Paper. We participated there two years ago, so had the relationships in place and felt comfortable approaching them. It’s not essential to our gallery that we exhibit during ARMORY week. There has to be a fit for us. And luckily this has worked out.” Visit Susie at Booth Number 803.

Another gallery who found safe harbor at Art on Paper is Accola Griefen Fine Art. They are pleased that they were able to –

“Reroute to the Art on Paper fair where we will be featuring Renée Stout, with her drawings, prints and paintings and palm fiber sculptures, drawings and paintings by Merritt Johnson. Due to the change of venue we are also pleased to be able to offer new collage work by Gina Adams that relate to her Broken Treaty Quilt Series and recent works on paper by Judy Pfaff.” Visit them at Booth 907 on the Mezzanine Level.

Abigail Ogilvy Gallery was also displaced and found themselves a literal plan b. Abigail Ogilvy shared this about the experience –

“Entering our inaugural year at VOLTA we were incredibly disappointed to hear of the postponement, especially in regard to the hard work put in by both our artist and the Abigail Ogilvy team. When we received the email from Peter Hort in regard to a Plan B occurring at the Chelsea Galleries we jumped at the chance to join, and are thrilled to be among the 30 galleries participating at at VOLTA Plan B at 525 W 19th Street!”

Markel Fine Arts is also participating at Art on Paper.  They will be at Booth 116 showing Ky Anderson
Josettte Urso, Katie DeGroot, Joanne Freeman and Marilla Palner.

Two AWAD member galleries will participate in the Spring/Break Art Show. The theme this year is FACT AND FICTION’. In keeping with theme the fair is inhabiting an entire floor of 866 UN Plaza at 48th Street and 1st Avenue.

ODETTA Gallery will be in Suite #11, in the former Finnish Consulate offices presenting Facts: Alternate. Three activist artists David Borawski, Margaret Roleke, Rita Valley create works that push back against the lies and misrepresentations presented by the Trump administration further amplified by social media. 

  Abigail Ogilvy Gallery  will also be at this fair featuring the work of Lavaughan Jenkins in a solo booth.

 

 

Yolanda Sánchez’s The Intensest Rendezvous at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Saturday, February 16th, 2019

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its latest solo exhibition of recent paintings by Yolanda Sánchez. Yolanda Sánchez takes the title for this series of works from a Wallace Stevens’ poem, Final Soliloquy of the Interior Paramour, and says: “No one-to-one relationship is attempted here between painting and poetry, but simply a desire to reflect Stevens’ notion of relationship in a general sense. A relationship between the outer world and the inner one, that is, ‘the intensest rendezvous.’ In this rendezvous, an experience of enlightenment takes place in which ‘…we collect ourselves, out of all the indifferences, into one thing.’ The poem is a beacon of light and hope, of those things that are good in the world. It echoes what I aspire to compress into my work: a spirit of celebration, expansion, optimism – inspiration against the dark – and in Stevens’ words, ‘a compensation for what is lost.’

The exhibition is on view through March 23rd, 2019
