Through February 1: HAROLD GARDE: ABEX TO NEO-EXPRESSIONISM. Some Risks Are Rewarded is a three-act exhibition curated by art historian, Dr. Edward Robinson. Painter and printmaker Harold Garde, whose extraordinary achievements in Abstract and Figurative Expressionism, from the 1950s onwards, make a significant yet under-recognized contribution to Post-War American art. His seven decade career spans the New York School of Abstract Expressionists’ second generation of the 1950s–1960s; continues with the figurative, mythic possibilities of Neo-Expressionism in the 1980s–1990s; and remains vitally inventive to present day. This exhibition features representative selections of Garde’s major bodies of work in painting, drawing, and prints, revealing his early and vigorous engagement with Abstract Expressionism as well as the persistent innovation of his mature artistic experimentation. To schedule a private viewing, contact: hello@artlery.com.

Opening January 3: In the Distance, new work by Nathalie Guarracino. Guarracino’s paintings are emotional reactions to a surrounding environment dominated by an ever accelerating rhythm of a daily routine preoccupied with multitasking, texting, tweeting, and the like. With reference to the organic and the natural, they stand in contrast to the endless distractions of an urban world entertained by technology and stiffened by the geometric, the stylized, the computerized. They evoke an ongoing, mesmerizing state of contemplation and meditation aiming to captivate and hold the viewer in the moment where one is compelled to ponder and reflect.

The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African and African American Art

The Cooper Gallery spring 2018 exhibition, ReSignifications, interprets the “Blackamoor” trope in Western culture. This tradition of decorative art emerged at the intersection of cross-cultural encounters shaped by centuries of migration, exchange, conquest, servitude, and exile. Present-day artists will respond to artists and designers of yore, to probe the many meanings of ReSignifications, and to infuse inert objects of art with voice and presence across the ages. ReSignifications links classical and popular representations of African bodies in European art, culture and history. It was originally conceived for the New York University’s Villa La Pietra and local venues in Florence, Italy, in 2015. The installation is guest curated by Awam Ampka.
