A Circle of Friends by Paul Wirhun at Ivy Brown Gallery

Ivy Brown Gallery celebrates the Easter season with the opening of ‘A Circle of Friends’ by Paul Wirhun. Wirhun explores the emotional roller coaster of loss and the changes it brings. “Death is the ultimate change; we leave behind all we knew and experienced and enter the Unknown.  For those left behind, the death of a loved one can reveal a host of emotions linked to the memories of the dearly departed. To explore this range of experience, I discovered these “skullys” – images based in Tibetan iconography – to be a perfect vehicle. Found in the crowns of protective (demonic) deities, these crazed-looking skulls force us to face the unimaginable with irrational delight. How DO we handle the complex emotions elicited by our experiences of mortality and loss of dear ones seemingly gone forever? How do we keep alive strong bonds of caring and support, when a beloved has died?” This show intends to explore these feelings through a series of drawings, eggshell collages, and objets d’ouef.
PAUL WIRHUN has been working on and with eggshells most of his life, using these organic spherical surfaces to produce innovative objets d’ouef, and broken shells to create collages and eggshell encrusted sculptures. His mastery of these materials comes from a life-long interest in exploring the range of possible expressions in this unique media.
Exhibition runs April 2nd – April 27th

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Nancy Cohen’s Force: Observations from the Interior

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Nancy Cohen – Force: Observations from the Interior March 28th – May 4th, 2019. In this most recent body of work, Nancy Cohen continues her exploration of waterways and their human like existence – persevering under constant adversity from outside forces. The imagery derives from memories of particular landscapes Cohen has encountered. Of them, the Samana Bay in the Dominican Republic and the tides of Eastport, Maine, have left a lasting impression on Cohen and are the driving force behind this series. Samana Bay, and a good portion of the Dominican Republic’s natural landscape, has seen the devastating effects of pollution and industry, devastation Cohen witnessed first hand.

It’s noisy in the world and that noise, all the information that constantly infects us, shortens our attention span. In painting I can do something to slow it down, edit out, look for the permanence in the transitory, which is really about hope. –  Shirley Irons

ODETTA is Moving from Bushwick to Chelsea

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.
