Gallery Openings in New York City (NYC, NY, Manhattan)

It is almost impossible to list all the exhibition openings that take place in New York City art galleries. There are so many galleries, and so little time! Here is a good sampling to start with.

Opening Reception |
In the 1980s, when the world was reverberating from the shockwaves sent by AIDS, Brazilian artist José Leonilson (1957–1993) adapted the political discourse of the epidemic into a metaphysical rumination. His work offers a pantheon of symbols, poetics, and patterns, charting in personal terms the odyssey of a disease, which simultaneously sparked fear, confusion, and panic.  José Leonilson: Empty Man, the first solo exhibition in the United States of one of Brazil’s leading figures of contemporary art. Leonilson’s mythical universe constructs an existential narrative around his own predicament, and this timeless intimacy doubly resonates in the context of a disease characterized so often by losses.

One Shot Two Summers is a series of nearly 60 paintings by Jordan Walczak. Completed over the summers of 2014 and 2015, the varied content depicted in this playful selection ranges from iconic cartoon character to stylized typography. The works’ bold color scheme, punchy phrasing, tight lines and honest imagery leap forward from the consistent gradients and textures of the flat spraypaint backgrounds.

Madelon Jones (pictured) recent work again is primarily on paper. She has kept scraps from older works that were either trimmed or discarded and has repurposed them by cutting, shaping, and painting them and then building them onto her paper surface to create her images. She calls the show Dialogue since as each piece is made there is a Dialogue between the art and the artist. Pat Cresson's recent paintings (2016-17) are abstract oil impressions on wood panels of places, feelings, thoughts and visual impressions. Her new paintings are poetic and are influenced by nature, her travels, her teaching and her accumulative life experiences. The unique color, textures, and organic and geometric forms become a layered composition of detailed yet simple and direct expression.
