Three new exhibitions featuring the unique artwork of five re-emerging older artists will be on display from March 2nd-23rd at the Carter Burden Gallery located at 548 West 28th Street #534 in Manhattan. The Carter Burden Gallery showcases the vibrant, cutting-edge and transformative art that is the product of the unique cultural wealth possessed by older professional artists.

Changing Patterns in the east gallery features sculptor Olivia Beens, and painters Claire Boren and Sylvia Harnick. Beens presents ceramic sculptures that explore issues of identity, feminism, and spirituality. Boren, in her third exhibit at Carter Burden Gallery, presents abstract mixed media works that stem from personal experiences and memories of World War II and the Holocaust. Harnick explores time, place, and memory through atmospheric, abstracted paintings and dynamic textures and colors.

Reflections in the west gallery features painter Joan Mellon. Through colorful, process-driven oil paintings, Mellon uses numerous layers of paint to build a rich and complex final surface that speaks to the physical act of painting and the exploration of color.

On the Wall features an installation by Elisabeth Jacobsen. Emerging from Jacobsen’s ongoing interest in casting cement forms and working with natural materials, the piece explores the hostility of acts like bullying and the strength required to resist these acts.
