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…)

Syncopation at ODETTA Gallery

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to share Syncopation – Emily Berger and Bob Seng. Chance, improvisation within the tight constraints of a limited color palette, and their monastic approach to their chosen materials brings these two artists together in their first two-person exhibition.

Emily Berger’s paintings are based on a structure of repetitive and deliberate gesture that is intuitive but carefully considered. She brushes, wipes, rubs, and scrapes, incorporating the color, texture, and pattern of the wood supports, concealing and revealing underlying layers in various states of transparency and solidity. Working with, and against, whatever happens as she paints, from edge to edge exposes areas of the surface to create shapes. Chance is an essential element of her process; but setting the stage, Berger primes the wood in a clear primer so that even more texture will emerge as the brush stutters across the surface, creating vestigial verticals among the horizontals in unpredictable ways.
