Three new exhibitions featuring the unique artwork of re-emerging older artists will be on display May 3, 2018 – May 24, 2018 at the Carter Burden Gallery.
EXHIBITS: In the East Gallery will be the Illusive Presence exhibition by Greg Brown and Howard Nathenson. In his first exhibition at the Carter Burden Gallery, Brown presents large-scale abstract renderings that were formed by shaving geometric, minimal lines and shapes and adding materials such as acrylic paint and tile adhesive compound to stretched fake fur. Nathenson presents a selection of works from the series Cut and Torn, where paper becomes a vehicle for photographs, digitally manipulated, multi-layered compositions, drawings, and as individual installations. Specializing in drawing, photography and painting, Nathenson’s imagery ranges from symbolic photographic realism to semi abstract compositions.
In the On the Wall installation entitled, Subway Emotions, Elton Tucker presents large-scale mixed media pieces that depict the portraits of people seen on New York City’s trains. Tucker’s paintings are vibrant and full of bold patterns, high energy, and movement. As a native New Yorker, he travels around the city constantly looking out for “interesting colors, textures, shapes and life's emotions.”
In the West Gallery, Quimetta Perle’s exhibition, The More Things Change, creates images of empowered women from diverse races, ethnicities, and ages in luminous beads and reflective sequins. Perle began using beads, sequins, and embroidery in the 1970s to make a statement about women’s traditional art materials, their beauty and visual power. Her works are pieces of the present moment, snapshots of our culture, which casually incorporates technology in every aspect of our lives.
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, May 3, 2018, 6pm - 8pm.
TIMES: Tuesdays – Fridays, 11am – 5pm; Saturdays, 11am – 6pm.
