Savoring INTERIORS in Winter...

During a season when staying inside is most enticing, Gallery35 celebrated the new year with INTERIORS which opened in January. This exhibit, whic h will run though February, provides a doorway to the artists’ visions of what lies within.

Understandably the workplaces of artists are prominent. Both Yolande Heljnen and Denise Fryburg are showing pieces titled Studio and In the Studio. And while not included in the exhibit, a detail from John Devaney’s Gallery can be seen on the show’s poster.

Bev Thompson’s Nightdawgs was inspired, as was Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks, by a diner. Hopper’s diner (since demolished) in Greenwich Village portrays people in a diner late at night. Thompson’s diner (still in existence) gives us a similar vantage point uptown where two streets intersect at 100th and Broadway. Dogs line up at the corner of the Metro Diner, eyeing the diners inside. The exhibit gives cats equal time with a kitten taking solace in the interior of a carton in Jody Leight’s photograph, Boogie, Thinking Inside the Box.

Exhibitng artists are Bev Thompson, Cari Clare, Denise Fryburg, Ingrid Sletten, Jody Leight, John Devaney, Juanita Gilmore, Lois Ross, Valerie Lynch, Virginia Asman and Yolande Heljnen

The festive Closing Reception on February 23rd, 6-8 PM, will provide one more opportunity to see this very interesting exhibit.

 

 

Rounding out our 2018/2019 season will be Nature (March 4–May 5) and Blue (May 6–June 15). We are also planning a 2019 Summer Exhibit which will feature the work of gallery artists Ingrid Sletten and Susan Demmet.
