Exhibitions

Bruce Davenport, Jr.

The four large-scale works in this exhibition are tributes to renowned heavyweight boxer champion Muhammad Ali. Each vivid color marker drawing, rendered in the artist’s celebrated style, is a variation of a common composition – an aerial view of a boxing match. Bordering this narrative are snapshots of Ali in action, along with memorable quotes such as, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." Customary in Davenport, Jr.’s works are the scrawlings of his personal thoughts and observations – scattered throughout in pockets of quiet spaces. Read More

Amer Kobaslija

This exhibition features small- to large-scale painted representations of artist studios on Plexiglas and wooden panels. Among them are the artist’s own studio, those of friends, as well as those of famous artists Balthus and Jackson Pollock. Read More

Erwin Redl

Random Precision in the Metric of Time presents a new body of work that reveals unexpected variances through time-based media and processes. Manifestations of rhythmic arrangements are explored using various media, either through movement or layers of materials accumulated over time. Read More

Luis Cruz Azaceta

PAINTING OUT LOUD is Luis Cruz Azaceta’s eighth exhibition with the gallery. The featured recent medium- and large-scale paintings and works on paper reflect the artist’s distinctive bright-colored abstraction and figuration and continue to encourage a dialogue regarding the current political climate, social injustices, war and ecocide.

Deborah Kass

This exhibition of neon works and large-scale paintings on canvas is Deborah Kass’ second with the gallery. Drawing from contemporary society, Broadway musicals, Yiddish and prominent art figures, she continues to incorporate lyrics and vernacular, melding art history and pop culture in vibrant, resonating compositions reminiscent of Frank Stella and Ellsworth Kelly. The work is depictive of the current posture of popular and political culture and the ensuing dysphoria, especially in contrast to the optimism of the postwar era. Read More

Gordon Parks

“Segregation Story” includes never-before-published images originally part of a series photographed for a 1956 Life magazine photo-essay assignment, “The Restraints: Open and Hidden,” which documented everyday lives of an extended black family living in the rural South under Jim Crow segregation. This compelling series challenged the myth of racism, demonstrating that the ambitions, responsibilities and routines of this family were no different than those of white Americans.

Amy Weiskopf

Still Lifes is Amy Weiskopf’s first exhibition with the gallery and includes approximately twenty small- to medium-scale recent works in oil. The carefully organized and composed paintings are unquestionably elegant and visually alluring. Read More

James Drake

Can We Know the Sound of Forgiveness, artist James Drake’s eleventh exhibition with the gallery, features a collection of the artist’s “red” drawings as well as a grouping of glass sculpture. The pastel drawings continue to reveal the renowned artist’s method and deliberation. The subjects, always personal, are often flecked with faint notations and markings, on paper consumed by the process, sometimes pieced together with exposed tape. Read More

David Halliday

David Halliday’s photographic series, Threadbare, profoundly builds on his previous work, at once announcing the photographer’s maturity as an artist. Provocative iconography of lost Americana - heavily decayed objects whose original intention has been exhausted - is given a new sort of vitality as his subject matter. Read More
