Allegra LaViola Gallery – Featuring works by Thomas Beale, Karen Heagle, Erik Jeor, Michael Kagan, Jason McLean, Brian Montuori, Jennifer Catron & Paul Outlaw, Jennifer Riley, and Jeremy Willis.
Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery – Now showing Cosmo, a summer group show that explores the abstract representation of things undeniably hot. Featuring Graham Anderson, Polly Apfelbaum, Anya Kielar, and Zachary Leene.
Simon Preston Gallery – Someone Has Stolen Our Tent, a group show curated by Paula Naughton, brings together a diverse set of interpretations, the exhibition acts as a nexus to activate thought and consider modes of perception and construction of meaning.
Lesley Heller Workspace – Zooey highlights artists whose work is inspired by the animal. Real and fantastical, animals have existed within our cultural imagery for thousands of years. The artists featured in this exhibition carry on this tradition in painting and in sculpture, some using humor, others mythology and spirituality.
BOSI Contemporary – Wappen Field, on view now, features a large-scale participatory installation and a series of sculptures by the artist Michelle Jaffe. Her works explore the use of armor to mask and shelter the body from interference. Reflecting on the theory of the collective unconscious and mythological truths, Jaffé utilizes a minimalist aesthetic to create work that uniquely questions the interplay between archetypes in socio-cultural structures.
Stephan Stoyanov Gallery – The artists within the new exhibit Flowers For You dig deep and bundle up flowers that perplex and frighten, soothe and engage, invigorate and astonish. Stoyanov’s bouquet is no empty beauty. We can glimpse the fullest bloom of experience, replete with thorns; death, love, sex, vulnerability, irony, kitsch, – it is all here.
Nicelle Beauchene Gallery – Now on view is a two-person exhibition of woodblock prints by London based artist Jack Vickridge and wooden sculptural reliefs by Brooklyn based artist Lizzie Wright. The two artists in this exhibition are united not only by their shared exploration of geometric abstraction but through their use of spare, elegant forms rendered through their physical approach to mark-making and material investigation of wood.
