Brightness, joyfulness and bloom
With one moment you refresh the room
Moments pass of light and color
Meander through heart and mind
Lines and line, denote the time
And we would have no other
Graces perfect the art, a boon
To lift the spirits in our gloom
For stark and hollow, the winter tree
But in the ground now lays the seed
Which in months time will sate our need
And freedom growing, will itself be free

Art To Go: A Benefit for Make the Road New York

NOVEMBER 30–DECEMBER 16, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 6–9pm
 

Transmitter is pleased to present Art to Go: A Benefit for Make the Road New York. In these tumultuous times, we have acknowledged the potential in harboring community efforts for the common good. As a result, we've chosen to take action by inviting dozens of artists we have exhibited and friends of the gallery to create unique works on or with our iconic tote bag. Each piece will be for sale for $150 with a few limited edition runs available for less, and a portion of all sales will be donated to the immigrant support group Make the Road New York.

Underdonk is pleased to present Private Practice, a group exhibition of work by nineteen artists, each presenting a selection of their studio practice. Comprised of sketches, notes, objects of inspiration, shrines, postcards, and unseen drawings with completed works, this exhibition explores the line between private and public. Giving the artist permission to show what one would often keep hidden or as an idea not fully processed but for further fruition in another work, this show lays bare the unfolding thinking practice in the studio. The artist is a work in progress, perpetually searching, changing, and staying the same. We are gatherers, hoarders, and historians.

Borderlands at COOP Gallery: Nashville


Georgia Elrod, Baris Gokturk, and Sarada Rauch 

COOP Gallery is pleased to present Borderlands, an exhibition featuring the work of Brooklyn-based artists and Heliopolis Gallery curators Georgia Elrod, Baris Gokturk, and Sarada Rauch. 
 
Elrod, Gokturk, and Rauch met as graduate students at Hunter College in New York City. They joined forces as a curatorial team at Heliopolis, an artist run-gallery and project space in Brooklyn. Together they have created a dynamic program that has in turn developed new sensibilities in their own work.

Borderlands is an artistic response to their last 3 years’ curatorial projects. The ideas for many of these shows have stemmed from the group’s ongoing discussions that have triggered an organic process of hashing out concepts and themes. Recurring themes that most centrally persist have been interiority, and the tension present in ideas of inside, outside, and areas in between; liminality, or periods of transition where objects exist in a threshold of ambiguity; and the reconsideration of visual and conceptual norms via humor and re-appropriation.

In their process, each artist as curator carries whatever is happening in their respective studios to a table conversation, which often turns into a three-person debate. In turn, each artist brings the resulting issues and ideas back into their studios, helping to transform and take their own work to new dimensions. Borderlands is a result of this dialogue, featuring artworks that reflect the formal and conceptual sensibilities that were developed in the curatorial process.

This exhibition is the first part of an exchange between COOP Gallery and Heliopolis Gallery. The second part will feature COOP artists showing at Heliopolis in Brooklyn.

NOVELLA is pleased to present Around the Corner, a solo exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Georgia Elrod. Painted from imagination, these works are a translation of the artist’s memory and subconscious. They present glimpses of interiors, and within and beyond them, moments of absence and reflection. The work has been inspired by the complexities and unanswered questions that surround the artist's own family history. As the past is navigated and interpreted, these paintings have become extrapolations, bearing witness to a history through allusion and suggestion. They attempt to include the viewer in the conversation as they both fill in the blanks and create new ones. In this recent work there lingers the anticipation of potential narratives.
Elrod makes many drawings in ink on paper and these often inspire larger paintings. These luminous works have a light-blasted quality; thinly painted surfaces subtly suggest edges, layers, and the spaces in between. Paint has been added but also intentionally rubbed out, creating form through removal. This subtraction, along with the addition of drawing in pastel has become an increasingly important aspect of the artist’s process.
Around the Corner presents stages, openings, and visions of a world quietly reverberating with something just out of reach. The work suggests a sense of anticipation and invites the viewer to explore.
