Three new exhibitions featuring the unique artwork of re-emerging older artists will be on display May 31, 2018 – June 21, 2018 at the Carter Burden Gallery. The Carter Burden Gallery showcases the vibrant, cutting-edge and transformative art that is the product of the unique cultural wealth possessed by older professional artists.
EXHIBITS: In the East and West Galleries will be the A Shared Interest exhibition that features ten artists and their interpretations on how working in a variety of styles and mediums can create works with powerful compositions, colors and surfaces. The ten artists include Harriet FeBland, Reidunn Fraas, Dora Frost, Nancy Staub Laughlin, Robert Petrick, Lester Rapaport, Regina Silvers, Carl Stark, Margie Steinmann, and Lilyan Stern.
The inspiration for three of the artist include a shared interest in nature. Lilian Stern’s strikingly complex paintings arose from her captivation with 20th century Geometric Abstract painters and their ability to reduce shapes to the underlying spirituality of nature, while creating optical illusions. Inspired by her Catskill Mountain hikes, Regina Silvers seeks to retain the essential forms of the subject matter, while heightening the colors and narrowing the focus to encourage viewers to value the ordinary beauty of our environment. Nancy Staub Laughlin’s work is dynamic, layered, juxtaposing assemblages of nature that allow the viewer to enter a world of color, light, dimension and beauty from her perspective.
In the On the Wall installation, Adrianne Lobel presents a large-scale, dramatic, and colorful painting of Mobile Homes. Painting seemingly common subjects, she finds beauty in places and things that might usually go unnoticed.
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, May 31, 2018, 6pm – 8pm
TIMES: Tuesdays – Fridays, 11am – 5pm; Saturdays, 11am – 6pm
