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.

 

 

Garvey|Simon presents Exploring Light by Bentley Meeker

Friday, March 1st, 2019

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Exploring Light, a new series of illuminated, sculptural works by Bentley Meeker March 8th – 17th.

This new work is the result of Meeker’s observations and research into visible light and its impact on the human psyche.  The artist’s expertise comes from decades of experimentation, study and use of varying light frequencies via his studio practice, as well as his commercial career as a renown lighting designer.

Meeker’s work is primarily focused around the essence and exploration of light’s nature, its meaning to us, and the changes in our collective use of light. His mission is to create reactions and relationships between light sources and the human experience. Exploring Light consists of forty contemplative installations that create a unifying tableau and invite the viewer to immerse themselves in a collective perception. These meticulously constructed sculptures comment on the intersection of human culture and the natural world.

The exhibition will take place during Armory week at 517 W. 37th Street New York, NY 10018, a street level gallery space in the Hudson Yards district in close proximity to the fairs. The show will be open and on view Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm, and by appointment. An artist talk will be held in the gallery on Saturday, March 16, at 1pm.

Endolllentions at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery continues this years programing with ‘Endollenations’ a playful yet poignant body of work by Thedra Cullar-Ledford.

For this series Thedra Cullar-Ledford paints the bodies of models to look like a doll of their choice, photographs them in poses accentuating their objectness, and then paints onto the prints to further enhance the “doll-ness” of the image. In these deceptively straightforward works, she uses the visual vocabulary of dolls to blur the line between an actual living-and-breathing person and the socially-or commercially-distorted representations of how a person should present themselves to us as viewers.

Opening reception
Tuesday, February 5, 6-8pm Exhibition dates February 5-March 5
