FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
I had discovered, early in my researches, that their doctrine was no mere chemical fantasy, but a philosophy they applied to the world, to the elements, and to man himself; and that they sought to fashion gold out of common metals merely as part of an universal transmutation of all things into some divine and imperishable substance; and this enabled me to make my little book a fanciful reverie over the transmutation of life into art, and a cry of measureless desire for a world made wholly of essences. - W.B. Yeats, Rosa Alchemica
 
7Eleven Gallery is pleased to announce “Alchemy”, a group exhibition, running from January 12th – February 18th at 711 Washington Street in the West Village. The exhibition features artists Thomas Beale, Lucas Blalock, Nick Doyle, Adam Fuss, GAINES, Elissa Goldstone, Eve Andrée Laramée, Eva Lewitt, Dylan Lynch, Thomas McDonell, Casey Neistat, Lesley Raeside, Jason Reppert, Alex Rickard, Keith Sonnier, Michael St. John, William Stone and Rob Wynne.
The most common definition of alchemy is the process of turning base metals into gold. Over the years it has also been interpreted, metaphorically, as the transmutation of materials into a higher form; scientifically, as a study of compounds and matter; religiously and mystically, as the union of man and the divine for the goal of achieving a level of perfect balance on a quest for the greater refinement of self.
 
These interpretations were the inspiration behind the work of the eighteen artists featured in 7Eleven Galleryʼs “Alchemy.” The making of art is alchemy. Artists have the ability to transmute ordinary objects into extraordinary works, giving new meaning to their previous purpose. The artists featured in this exhibition seized this power.
 
Many of the works directly reference alchemy, while others imply it. Some deal with elements found in nature and their transformation into art; others use science to create natural forms, such as light. Materials found in everyday life are distorted into various structures, which transcend their original significance. Nature, science, mysticism and the altering of common items give a sense of enchantment and wonder to the overall exhibition.
 
This exhibition was curated by Sabrina Blaichman, Caroline Copley and Genevieve Hudson- Price. 7Eleven is a nomadic art gallery first opened in the Summer of 2008 in the West Village. After two group shows in a warehouse in Chelsea, including 2010ʼs “Make Yourself At Home” featuring seventy-six artists, the gallery has found its way back to the West Village. 7Eleven is dedicated to showcasing the work of young and emerging artists as well as the more established of the art world.

Performing Coordinates: Cityscapes Revised

Curated by Zoe Lukov

Opening reception June 22nd, 6-9pm

Abrazo Interno Gallery at CSV: 107 Suffolk Street

Featuring works by: Carlton DeWoody, Lucas Flores Piran, Chibi Lai, Wayne Liu, Zenith Richards, Reyes Santiago Rojas and Georgia Wall

Using the Clemente Sato Velez Center and its presence in New York's Lower East Side as a point of departure, Performing Coordinates: Cityscapes Revised investigates the performance of our individual identities upon the layered physical spaces we inhabit. The LES is the neighborhood in which new immigrants to NY have settled and where today hipsters, scenesters, artists and young professionals lay claim to the stories, cultures and peoples that define this contested territory. Performing Coordinates seeks to re-envision the cartography of the city as a palimpsest of histories that engage and affect the people who occupy it.

Object Image, March 10th- April 16th at Tibor De Nagy

Opening Reception Thursday, March 10th 5-7pm

Featuring artists John Newman, Kathy Butterly, Andrew Masullo, Thomas Nozkowski, George Ohr and Leslie Wayne

The Tibor de Nagy Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of six artists, three sculptors and three painters. With the notable exception of ceramic sculptor George Ohr (1857-1918), the remaining five are contemporary artists and are represented by a selection of new work. Irrespective of their medium---whether a painter or sculptor----each of the artist’s pieces is modestly sized, and shares an intimacy and a painterly approach to abstraction. Their work shares sensibilities consisting, among many other things, of autonomy, movement, and playful use of color. The artists have each arrived at their own vocabulary and their work taken individually inhabits distinct and intimate worlds. Kathy Butterly uses seemingly-dissimilar materials and patterns, seamlessly intertwining them into vessels that seem to spiral around themselves. Though her process is labor-intensive, the end result feels improvised, fresh, and light. The fluidly curving forms of John Newman’s sculptures, with their small scale and gem-like quality, evoke little worlds of intimacy. Quiet and delicate, the works seem not to have a beginning or end; they emerge into space while seeming to draw into themselves. When one considers the time period in which George Ohr was working (he was born in 1857 and died in 1918), the sheer modernity of his ceramics becomes all the more astounding. His works convey spontaneity and confidence in his technique; his inventiveness exudes intelligence and an improvisational flair.Though working in oil paint, Leslie Wayne’s method of pinching, folding, pulling, and slicing her material cannot help but be seen as sculptural. Each twist and fold is energetic and surprising, revealing layers of exuberant color that reveal a pliable sensuality. Andrew Masullo’s paintings express an interest in shape, though a resistance against allowing shape to dominate color, movement, or surface. This push/pull serves to create a joyful and dynamic confidence in the manipulation of material. Thomas Nozkowski’s abstract oil paintings explore the realm in between the geometric and the organic, employing a seemingly limitless vocabulary of shapes within the confines of his small works. His use of subtle variation continually questions the figure/ground relationship, making his paintings seem at once two-dimensional and sculptural.The gallery will present an exhibition of Butterly’s recent work at the ADAA Art Show, March 2– 6, Booth D-28.
