From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

An afternoon with Larissa Shmailo and Dean Kostos. Since myths were chanted above the swirling fires of prehistory, contradictions arose in these received tales. Myth, in the classical tradition, also includes the irreverent frolicking of gods and goddesses. There was something comforting, as well as terrifying, in the deities' human flaws.

Opening Reception |
The paintings evoke the phantasmagoric worlds of Bruegel, but his scenes address the contemporary world. The paintings, some as large as 6’ x 8’, are visually complex, depicting groups of manic figures in absurd scenarios. Hayes’ vision of the human condition is comic and bleak, yet laced with poignance. The detailed paintings reward a close reading.

Opening Reception |
The show introduces the artist's newest direction of combining figures with folds of fabric. Nagel states, "As a figurative artist, I've always had a fractious relationship with clothing. My concern is with the body, with creating mood. Clothes always seemed like a needless complication - and I know nothing about fashion. Somewhere along the way, though, I discovered that clothing, or more simply fabric, can have its own body and mood. It can cover, and it can interact."
