ODETTA presents Heavy Metal

Saturday, November 16th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Heavy Metal featuring Linda Cunningham, Anne Marie Kenny and Suzanne Benton in the Flat File Feature. The exhibition, the last of the 2019 season, runs from November 19, 2019 – January 4, 2020. 

Durable and malleable, primary characteristics used to describe heavy metals, can also be applied to the most outstanding traits found in the three successful women artists featured in exhibition. All well versed in metal sculpture, printmaking, painting, and activism, the beauty of the finished works and conceptual structures is made evident by the trueness of their practice and the mastery of their hand.

There will be several events during Heavy Metal.

Meet the Artists

Thursday, November 21, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Talk

Saturday, November 23, 3-5 pm

The events are free and open to the public. The exhibition runs through Saturday, 12:00 Noon, January 4, 2020. 

ODETTA presents Joanne Mattera’s From Dawn to Dusk & Steven Baris in the Flat Files

Thursday, October 10th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present From Dawn to Dusk – October 15 – November 16, 2019 at the 1st Dibs Gallery.

The exhibit intimates the course of light’s changes through a day in Joanne Mattera’s encaustic paintings, developed both from the artist’s imagination and from years of observing color in nature.

From morning’s first light, with traces of pinks and violets, into blues, greens, high noon’s purest yellows and reds, and receding into twilight’s violets and flashes of oranges with the sun’s final sizzle at the end of the day, we share an awareness of color’s ability to guide us through time.

Stephen Maine- Press Play – at ODETTA

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present their second solo exhibition in our new Chelsea location – Stephen Maine- Press Play with supporting artworks by Ryan Sarah Murphy as our Flat File Feature Artist.

Through humble materials, and an exploration into gravity and printmaking, Stephen Maine, in Press Play offers an updated approach to gestural abstraction. On a monumental scale, Maine creates a playful system of applying paint to canvas that is simultaneously performance, Rube Goldbergian engineering, and “blind painting.” Employing traditional printmaking skills, like developing a registration system for applying multiple layers of color, but on a gigantic scale, the plates obscure his view of what is actually happening on the canvas. The resulting color-rich abstractions offer surprising nuances and associations with landscape and science, while toggling between macro and micro perspectives. In contrast, Ryan Sarah Murphy’s abstractions, featured in our Flat Files, decidedly coax the found packaging materials to interact with one another in unexpected, yet lucid ways. The mass produced, tossed out, eye-candy-colored shards and planes move Murphy to develop a grammar that presents bridges, overpasses, subway lines… the urban landscape.

Radiant at ODETTA Gallery

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Radiant featuring artists Elizabeth Gourlay, Anne Russinof, and Audrey Stone. The exhibition runs May 23 – June 21st.

Slowly but surely, the repetitive nature of the three artists’ paintings in Radiant marries color and luminosity, resulting in a satisfying meander through subtle experimental shifts and lines of thought. As the colors employed find their voice, our eyes become alert to a disciplined form of playfulness, resulting in pleasure.

Just beginning to collect art or love works on a more intimate scale? The Flat Files at ODETTA are a gallery within a gallery, curated for each exhibition. Original works of art 2D and 3D, artists books, and limited edition prints are available. Collect works from the very best artists in NYC. Flat File Artist will feature works by Jon Cowan

ODETTA is Moving from Bushwick to Chelsea

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

ODETTA Gallery after calling Bushwick home for many years is moving their gallery to Chelsea. Currently they are have exhibitions in both locations, one serving as a bridge to the other – collectively the exhibitions are called Femmes Fatales.

Bushwick:
Ann Chernow, dubbed the Queen of Noir, is also one of owner Ellen Hackl Fagen’s mentors. She is honored to bring the artist’s newest works to ODETTA for their final exhibition in the Bushwick gallery. ODETTA is also pleased to feature Susan Bee’s newest paintings and artist’s books as the flat file feature in the Bushwick gallery. The three paintings on the main wall of the studio are focused on mythical goddess figures in the act of smiting their transgressors and saving their people. The exhibition’s run is March 15 – April 14, 2019 with an opening reception Friday, March 15, 6-8 pm. There will also be an artist’s talk, Sunday, March 31, 3:00 pm

Chelsea:
Gelah Penn will install a single, monumental work in ODETTA’s new location in the 1st Dibs Gallery in the Terminal Markets in Chelsea. Like Chernow’s, Penn’s work is significantly informed by film noir. Her site-specific piece, Ebb Tide, embodies noir-esque  light and shadow, and female anxiety and resilience through layers of fabrics and plastics, both translucent and opaque. The exhibition runs from March 15 – April 11, 2019. Meet the artist reception on Friday, March 22, 4-6 pm and Wednesday, March 27, 12-2 pm.
