Party | End of Summer Soiree and Art Market


Meet local artists and peruse their works! Just in time to celebrate the end of Summer, and the coming Fall. There will be live music from Benji Kaplan, a book swap, and refreshments will be served. Participating artists: Lily Annabelle Caleakav, Melody Serra, Julia Van Nutt, Timur York. About the Artists Lily Annabelle Caleakav's work, often described as "modern nostalgia," is an examination of life in New York, and the sentiments that lie behind its facades. Her illustrations challenge the transitory nature of this town and preserve the heartwarming moments that define one's time in New York, long or short. The New York in her eyes is one that is stripped of intimidation and angst; she lets her audience see that beneath the surface, its people are neighborly, comforting, and full of life. Lily's Iconic New York series is a celebration of this city's people, its communities, and its cultural, literary, and culinary traditions. Melody Serra's passion is teaching and empowering others by sharing what she has learned. She helped launch an arts and crafts program at a children's hospital and also taught at San Quentin State Prison. Melody hopes to inspire youth to explore and expand their creativity through web development, writing, and art. Timur York is a New York-based independent multidisciplinary artist. He was born in Uzbekistan and immigrated as a teenager to NYC. He attended the School of Visual Arts with a focus on Graphic Arts and Advertising. The experience of fusing Fine Art principles and Design aesthetics formed a unique way he approaches his subject matter. His artistic area of interest is centered around the concepts of Time, Place, History, and Love. He depicts contemporary society's issues through graphic iconography, photography, painting, sculpture, and mixed media. Timur's early sculpture work is on permanent outdoor display at Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, D.C. His current work is in several museums and private collections.

Opening Reception | 2 Art Shows: New Works / Muscle Memory


New Works, a solo exhibition by Joe Henry Baker.  Baker (b. 1989) is a Brooklyn-based artist from London, England. In his ethereal works, Joe Henry Baker uses color and texture to explore light and movement in abstract form. Working alla prima, a delicate dance between chance and control, Baker fills his works with intricate and numinous details and brings a unique blend of elements to his craft. Muscle Memory, an exhibition of new works by Dejan Dukic. Dejan Dukic’s corporeal works elicit tension. By crafting his own canvases and deftly manipulating his works, Dukic lends them a tactile and sensual quality. His practice is intuitive and playful: using soft clay or magic foam, Dejan allows the operation of chance to determine a work’s final form. In his automatic practice, he employs his hands to massage foam directly onto the canvas, tapping into a sense of childish playfulness. Within his works, a cosmic realm unfolds, where approaching the canvas reveals intricate details while stepping back unveils a macroscopic scape.

Suzanne Treister Kabbalistic Futurism Since the 1980s, Treister has conducted years-long investigations into societal taxonomies and technological paradigms to expose the existence of covert, unseen forces that bind power, identity, and knowledge. mosie romney Rhizome St./Fugue Avenue Working in the space between figuration and abstraction, romney uses painting as a portal through which to explore themes of self-perception and polychronic time.

Opening Reception | Fitter, Happier, More Productive: Group Exhibition on Toxic Wellness


Barre classes. Juice cleanses. Meditation apps. Ten-step skincare routines. Athleisure. Mindfulness training. Collagen peptides. Jade rolling. The “self-care” industry ceaselessly introduces trends aimed at improving physical and mental wellbeing, at least for those who can afford the hefty price tag. Such commodities and services are sold as a pathway to personal optimization, evading the question: for what purpose and whose benefit? Fitter, Happier, More Productive brings together six artists whose work explores the toxic underbelly of capitalist wellness culture. The exhibition problematizes capitalism’s framing of wellness as a personal quest for self-improvement rather than a collective project requiring societal investment and systemic change. Instead of offering opportunities for reflection and renewal, wellness culture conditions us to see life as another mode of work, and work as the defining feature of life. By marketing self-care as an individualistic endeavor, capitalism gaslights the public into believing that issues created by corporate greed and a gutted welfare state might be solved by an açaí bowl, a yoga retreat, or twenty-five units of Botox.

Opening Reception | Kate Mosher Hall: Big View


The work of Kate Mosher Hall inhabits the charged space of reciprocal looking, activating a locus of estrangement present in any shared visual encounter and amplifying it. Through an interplay of two primary modes of image production—silkscreen printing and painting—she manages to suspend the medium specificities of either address as a way of playfully exploiting the uncertainties inherent to any act of looking. These images share an elusive, ‘hidden-in-plain-sight’ effect, but one that operates through an unavoidable visual regress: flashes of discernment quickly withdraw into instances of misrecognition. At the same time, visual identifications are retained as hovering or buried afterimages. The experience is akin to both seeing and not seeing at once, stimulating an awareness of looking siloed by the limits of perspectival bias, the strange over-exposure of seeing oneself seeing. The pictures aspire to the status of an image capable of possessing our visual agency not unlike a reflexive hypnosis.

Opening Reception | Yuli Yamagata: The new, the old, and the hole


The Brazilian artist Yuli Yamagata’s new body of work, which includes fabric paintings, Ikebana sculptures, and ceramics, was developed over the course of Yamagata’s summer residency at Lacasapark in Gardiner, New York. In the transition from the fast-paced life of her hometown of São Paulo, to the woodsy seclusion of the Hudson Valley, Yamagata’s relation to time and economy of production shifted. Granted this special set of circumstances in which to work, extracted from her familiar surroundings and routine, the artist was able to exist in seemingly suspended time. The works created over the past two months are a blend of premeditated ingredients shipped from the city, and spontaneous ideas that came about while acclimating to a new environment.

Concert | Smooth, Sultry Voice of Country Soul


Once you hear Kat Wright sing, you'll never forget her voice. Sultry and dynamic, satin smooth with a bed of grit and whiskey, Wright's vocals evoke Bonnie Raitt's velvet growl and Amy Winehouse's sweet-and-sour croon. Wright and her touring band have performed a southern-spiced blend of R&B, folk, and rock music opening for Kacey Musgraves, The Wood Brothers, Leon Russell, Grace Potter, and dozens of other like-minded country soul artists. Following the release of her 2016 breakout album, By My Side, Wright spent the COVID years honing her craft with bandmates Josh Weinstein on bass and Bob Wagner on guitar in service of a pair of beguilingly stripped-down acoustic Trio Sessions EPs. Her forthcoming sophomore album, produced by Benny Yurco, is due in 2024.
