“Exhibition Pick: Jim Richard and Friends,” Pelican Bomb

Jim Richard | Tiger,  2009 | Oil on paper | 12 x 9 1/2 inches

Jim Richard’s ninth exhibition at Arthur Roger Gallery brings together four of his former students—Cheryl Donegan, Amy Feldman, Wayne Gonzales, and Lisa Sanditz—to share the gallery space with him. It has the collegial feeling of a school group project, with the artists putting in their own individual contributions, but this is one where the teacher joins in too. Read More

“Review: Darn That Dream at Arthur Roger Gallery,” Gambit

Jim-Richard-Pretty-Boy

For most of his career, Jim Richard’s paintings amounted to “art about art,” only instead of art history, they suggested settings for short stories where the artworks themselves were the protagonists. These new works are similar but they also allude to the way digital technology now makes everything in the world seem more accessible yet somehow less real, as elusive as pixels on a computer screen.

“5 Artists to Watch: Cuba Edition,” artnet News

Luis Cruz Azaceta, Swimming to Havana VIII (2010). Courtesy of Lyle O. Reitzel.

Red is certainly not the only color Cubans express themselves with, however—a country with a famously colorful personality, Cuba embodies a wide-ranging palette in its lively architecture, people, cuisine, and vegetation. The artist Luis Cruz Azacata captures this vibrancy in his swirling, playful work, Swimming to Havana VIII. It’s easy to imagine the rainbow-streaked streets of Havana when looking at this artist’s oeuvre, so let this painting be a reminder for you to not miss out on the colorful experiences now available to you in Cuba.

“Review: All You Need Know,” Gambit

Nicole-Charbonnet-Pattern_Climb-Every-Mountain-No-2

Initially, Nicole Charbonnet’s spectrally painted compositions with repeating patterns suggest the empty “zombie formalism” favored by Wall Street investors in recent years, but look again and microecosystems of words and images emerge from obscurity beneath painterly washes in works that utilize time like a tone or color.

“Review: The Other Landscape,” Gambit

Jacqueline Bishop | After the Rain (Methane) | 2014-15 | Oil on Belgian linen | 54 x 65 1/2 inches

Billed as an exploration of landscape painting and the complex connections between climate change, species extinction and migration, Jacqueline Bishop’s new show at Arthur Roger Gallery encompasses familiar environmental topics from the daily news. But her imagery evokes a realm of nature so otherworldly that mythology and sorcery may be the most immediate references that come to mind. Read More
