Neel / Picasso at the Sara Kay Gallery

Friday, May 10th, 2019

Sara Kay Gallery is pleased to present Neel / Picasso, on view through July 20. The exhibition features significant portraits from private collections by the artists Alice Neel (1900-1984) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973).

Neel and Picasso were contemporaries who transformed and revitalized portraiture in the 20th century. For the first time, their works will be shown exclusively side-by-side. The exhibition explores the artists’ internal landscapes, the relationships with their subjects, and exemplifies the development of modern portraiture.  Through select paintings by both artists, this exhibition offers a revealing parallel view of two key 20th century painters.

Picasso said that his work acted as a “sort of a diary.” Neel claimed she was “a collector of souls…” capturing “what the world has done [to her sitters] and their retaliation.” Linked in time, differing in approach, the parallel viewing of these two innovative 20th century painters offers insights into both their artistic achievements and the radicalization of portraiture.

A needless life, it seemed to me

Until a little Bird

As to a Hospitality

Advanced and breakfasted.

This excerpt from Emily Dickinson’s deceptively charming poem “Our Little Kindsman After Rain,” suppositions that the bird—and its ecosystem—is actually a necessary part of God’s world and more important even than her own. Deceptively charming has also been used to describe the work of artists Francine Fleischer, Erica-Lynn Huberty and Lucy Winton.  The aesthetic and practical architecture of flight and nest-building, and the psychological architecture of the deep, dark woods, are themes universal to humans as well as birds, and they are themes that run deep in the work of Fleischer, Huberty and Winton.  “Until A Little Bird” brings together for the first time these three mid-career artists as they explore a common obsession each has held: that of the world of birds.

Suzanne Unrein, Slip at Sara Nightingale Gallery

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present,  opening Saturday, May 11th, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through June 3rd.

Suzanne Unrein grew up among swamps, alligators, mossy oaks and hundreds of varieties of birds in the coastal towns of Florida.  Her travels and encounters with animals in Mexico, South Africa, Borneo and Bali have contributed to her vibrant worlds where the animality of humans plays within a world of beasts. The drawings for Slip began at Unrein’s art residency in Can Serrat, El Bruc, Barcelona, Spain, in August of 2018 and have continued with her return to New York City.  In the drawings, Unrein moves away from the exuberant brushstrokes and vibrant color of the paintings. She calms down the motion and simplifies the palette to concentrate on the more psychological aspects of the work. Two large paintings inspired by the drawings will also be exhibited.

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.

What Is Left Behind – Stories From Estate Sales at Truth and Beauty Gallery

Monday, May 6th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to share its online exhibition What Is Left Behind – Stories From Estate Sales
by photographer Norm Diamond

“For over a year I went to several hundred estate sales in Dallas, Texas, where I live. In many parts of the US, people use estate sales to dispose of their parents’ possessions after they die or move to assisted living facilities. In addition to photographing at the sales themselves, I also bought many inexpensive items that I studied later with better lighting and backgrounds in my home studio.  (more…)
