qUiRk curated by Fran Shalom at Markel Fine Arts

Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Markel Fine Arts is please present, “!qUiRk”  a group show curated by Fran Shalom. The origin of the word “quirk” is unknown, but when it first appeared in the 16th century it referred particularly to a sudden twist, turn or curve, particularly in writing or drawing, later acquiring the specific sense of a “flourish” in writing or drawing. Using a variety of media – knitted yarn, clay, old photographs, ceramics & paint – the works of many of the seventeen artists represented in !qUiRk materially involve turns, curves, three-dimensional twists, sudden deviations, swirls and flourishes.

The exhibit features  work by Laylah Ali, Tom Butler, Mary Carlson, Jennifer Coates, Elisa D’Arrigo, Barbara Friedman, Teri Hackett, Catherine Harggerty, Judith Linares, Dennis Kardon, Andrew Masullo, Nat Meade, Marcy Rosenblatt, Caroline Wells Chandler, Daniel Wiener, Mie Yim, and Charles Yuen.

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.
