Space of Belonging, new paintings by Angela A’Court at Susan Eley Fine Art

Wednesday, November 13th, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Space of Belonging, a solo show featuring new paintings by Angela A’Court. The exhibition opens on Thursday, November 14 with a reception from 6-8 pm, 

Space of Belonging is comprised of pastel paintings and a series of mixed media prints, all produced within the last two years. A’Court first exhibited with SEFA in the three-person show, Finding Arcadia (2008). Subsequently, she has participated in numerous group shows and art fairs in the UK, US and Canada. Of note was her 2016 solo exhibition at SEFA, The Poetry of Mending. A’Court begins each painting with a broad, color plane—red, blue, pink or yellow—which acts as a table for the artist’s still life vocabulary. (more…)

OFF THE GRID at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019
 Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Off The Grid, on view through October 24. This group show explores art inspired by the mathematics of rows and column and features ten artists: PAMELA ALLEN, DOUG ASHFORD, CAROLINE BLUM, LORI ELLISON (COURTESY OF MCKENZIE FINE ART), MAHMOUD HAMADANI, EUN VIVIAN LEE, DAVID REISMAN, AURA ROSENBERG, ANNE SAINT-PIERRE and KATE SNOW. Off The Grid was guest curated by Caroline Blum, an independent curator and artist.

Notes on Off The Grid by David Reisman:

From Excel spreadsheets to Google maps; from the tiles on the subway floor to the electrical systems that make the subway possible, grids are so much a part of our daily experience that they are sometimes ignored or taken for granted. Historically, artists have used grids as tools and as source material; for their practical applications for working out compositions and proportions; and as a means for enlarging and manipulating images in the pre-Photoshop era. Modernist abstract artists like Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, and Sol Lewitt were attracted to grids for their own sake, for their austere, no-nonsense quality that could simultaneously suggest modernity, mathematical thought and an aesthetic idealism reflecting a desire for human progress. More recent artists use grids in a more self-conscious, humorous, introspective or ironic way, showing some of the limits and possibilities of progressive ideas in current art. (more…)

Suspending: New Work by Francie Hester at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Suspending: New Work by Francie Hester, ongoing through May 31. This exhibition is Hester’s second with SEFA, following the success of Materialize, a two-person show with Amber George (2014).  A highlight of Suspending will be the debut showing of forty Daily Drawings, created as a sort of visual diary while on sabbatical in NYC in 2018. Each work on paper, 21 x 17 inches, rendered with acrylic and gold leaf, was a response to her immersion in New York’s art world during the busy spring season. Together, the cycle makes a powerful visual impact, as seemingly random patterns overlap between the 40 individual drawings.

Susan Eley presents Winter Selects: A Group Exhibition

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

Winter Selects: A Group Exhibition featuring recent work by nine artists and begins the new year at Susan Eley Fine Art. Artists include Seongmin Ahn, Karin Bruckner, Susan Clinard, Peggy Dembicer, Nancy Hubbard, Lydia Janssen, Rachelle Krieger, Chase Langford and Nancy Moore. The exhibition highlights a mix of artists from SEFA’s roster, along with artists exhibiting with the Gallery for the first time. Among the newcomers are three Guild Members of the Silvermine Arts Center, a non-profit contemporary arts and education center, located in New Canaan CT. The Gallery believes it’s important to mount significant bi-annual group shows, alternating throughout the year with solo and two-person exhibitions. These group exhibitions offer artists regular opportunities to show new work, often fresh off the studio walls, and invite artists to see their work in the context of that of their peers. And for visitors to the Gallery, the rich array of styles and techniques in a group show offers a taste of the full roster of art represented by the Gallery.

The exhibition closes February 21st.

Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition at Susan Eley Fine Art

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition, opening with a reception on Thursday, November 15, 6-8 pm. The exhibition, comprised of 17 encaustics and oil paintings by New Jersey-based artist Lisa Pressman, and 17 acrylic paintings on canvas, acrylite and mixed media studies on paper by Korean-born artist Soonae Tark, will remain on view through December 27, 2018.

This is Soonae Tark’s first major exhibition with SEFA, having participated in the group show “Korean Art Now ” (2015). We are delighted to once again collaborate with curator Heekyoung Song, whose gallery Artflow focuses on contemporary Korean artists, to feature Tark’s paintings.

Soonae Tark’s studio in Sunnyside, Queens is awash in color. Canvases in bright orange, blue, hot pink and red line the walls. Tark’s signature painting is made up of a bright colored background furnished with towers of geometric forms, each a different size, shape and color. Tark’s repertory of shapes includes oblongs, rectangles, squares, wedge-shaped triangles and circles. Each shape is lovingly hand drawn, never perfectly symmetrical and always imperfect, reflecting the realities of an imperfect world.

Lisa Pressman exhibited with SEFA in the group show “Making Their Mark” (2011), the two-person show “Mapping a Place” (2014) and most recently at Art Toronto 2018. In some ways this exhibition represents a retrospective for Lisa Pressman. While the paintings on view are recent, they reflect and refer to 30 years of her content and mark making. Recurring themes of hash marks, vertical mark making, and symbols of vessels and containers are present.
