Variety was the spice.....of Gallery35’s soon-to-end season!

VARIETY has been the linch-pin of our 2017/2018 season. We have exhibited art celebrating a wide range of themes in 4 group exhibits—plus a couple of two-person shows as well.

Rick Perez and Yolande Heljne’s People, Places & Things (March 3-April 6) was largely a showcase of two artists’ very different renderings of similar subjects. Gallery35 member John Devaney summed it up: The two person show of figurative painters, Rick Perez and Yolande Heljnen, is a rare opportunity to see two sides of the figurative portrait process. Perez’s serene, even majestic, figures play an impressive counterpoint to the lively, tonal work of Heljnen... (to read John’s full description, visit our website: www.gallery35nyc.com)

In our second two-person show, An Artist’s Journey (April 7-May 5), Pat Gericke and Denise Fryburg both have used their art to chronicle their years of artistic development. The two, who studied together ten years ago,  have followed very different artistic paths. Denise has studied and worked as an artist continuously throughout her life. Pat interrupted her early artistic endeavors to pursue a different career and later returned to creating fine art. This exhibit showcases their evolving artistic processes.

Our final exhibit, Form & Formless (May 5-June 9), will feature contrasting styles ranging from figurative to fanciful, representational to totally abstract.

For figurative artist, John Devaney, “The gesture of figures is always prominent for me: how movement shapes both the figure and ground. I try to capture a sense of fluidity, an interplay between the seemingly solid objects and the space around them, whether in my paintings of swimmers, city crowds, buildings, and still life.”

Another representational artist, Teresa Hommel, is showing images of leaves and grass, and rocks with moss and/or lichen, where the key feature of the work is the composition.

Of Her Spirit Dancing, Ingrid Sletten explains “In my experience the spirit has shape and texture and an almost metallic quality about it; my dancing figure shows this in her essence.”

Virginia Asman has stretched her ability to work abstractly using the magical tools of the digital media to transform her southwest imagery of a chile ristra, a coyote and a skull.

Abstract work by Susan Demmet-Harris will complement the realistic renderings of three models painted by Kevin Maxwell at Chelsea Classical Studios and Lois Ross’ painting, Still LIfe.

Of special interest are Bev Thompson’s sculptures—Amazon Women, Jocasta with Oediupus (both bronze) and Ghost Dog (stone carving)—which will be presented in photographic form.

Also exhibiting work are Cari Clare, Denise Fryburg, Jody Leight, John Connors, Marilyn Boddewyn, Peter Robinson, Valerie Lynch, and Yolande Heljnen.

We are presenting two full Receptions: May 12 and June 9, both at 6-8pm. We are always especially pleased to meet members of tthe church!
