Suffrage at Guns & Rain Gallery

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

Guns & Rain gallery is pleased to share their current exhibition ‘Suffrage’. With multiple African elections taking place in 2019, this group show for Guns & Rain women artists reflects on women’s right to vote, and women’s rights more broadly – 101 years after (some) women’s suffrage.
Among other themes, these artists comment on the gendered nature of political participation, representation, history and memory, and failures of the state. Our fantastic line-up of artists includes Tuli Mekondjo (Namibia), Jenny Nijenhuis(South Africa),  Ayobola Kekere-Ekun (Nigeria), Jo Rogge (South Africa/Namibia) and Carmen Ford (South Africa).

The show is ongoing until July 24th.

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.

LAYERED AND ON EDGE: Cut Paper Artwork by Lauren Schwartz, curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis.

Thursday, June 20th, 2019

Kristin J. DeAngelis is pleased to share that she is the curator for LAYERED AND ON EDGE: Cut Paper Artwork by Lauren Schwartz, presented by SILVERMAN and The Hamilton Square Condominiums Association. The exhibition is on going through August 31st.

Lauren’s work aims to take the tools of childhood – paper, scissors, glue – and the shapes of childhood – lines, scribbles, blocks – and create vibrant, three-dimensional artwork. Her compositions are often patterns of light and dark, shape and form, color and contrast that intrigue her, and working in paper allows her to explore those visual components without regard to the accuracy of representing a specific subject or object.
