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.

 

 

Susan Eley Fine Art announces winter exhibition – All Her Number’d Stars

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of All Her Number’d Stars: Paintings, Drawings and Sculptures by Jason Noushin. This is the first solo exhibition for the artist in New York City, following the success of his participation in SEFA’s group exhibition: Beyond the Ban: Contemporary Iranian Art. Noushin was born in England and raised in Iran. He lived in London before moving to the US in 1997, where he has since lived in Connecticut. Living a life seeped in multicultures informs his work, which reflects a play between the Middle East and the West and explores the intersection of seemingly disparate elements. Returning to the language of his childhood home, Noushin incorporates Persian calligraphy in many of his paintings and sculptures. Farsi transliterations of poetry written by British literary greats such as Keats, Hawthorne and Shelley, are drawn across his canvases and reflect a reconciliation of the cultures that have shaped him.

January 10 – February 22, 2018 | Opening Reception Wednesday, January 10, 6-8pm

Following the Thread – a group show at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts”Following the Thread”

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents “Following the Thread”

The distinct divide between the worlds of art and craft has been rapidly shrinking. Artists who work with textiles are being welcomed into the contemporary art world like never before. Following the Thread celebrates a selection of these artists who are experimenting with and being inspired by textiles and the techniques used to work with them in a modern way. Drawn to the aesthetics or the cultural and political connotations of textiles, their work looks to the tenets of painting, applying notions of space, form, and color to their manipulation of fabric and thread.

Ongoing and closes September 2nd.
