Leon Bronstein: Between The Fantastic And The Real
OPENING RECEPTION Friday, March 6  5-8 PM

The exhibition, Leon Bronstein: Between the Fantastic and the Real, shows the range and the evolution of Leon Bronstein’s work throughout more than 40-year career as a sculptor. From the humble beginning of carving in olive wood for tourists in Israel, to a successful career as an internationally recognized artist that now works with 3D computer modeling to design monumental sculpture for art in public spaces.  The exhibition includes sculptures in olive wood, bronze and aluminum, and drawings that inform the viewer about the process of creating his sculpture. The exhibition also focuses on Bronstein’s process of developing and executing the site-specific sculpture All You Need Is Love, which will be installed in the Grand Center Arts District.

Katherine Simóne Reynolds
“a Different Kind of Tender”
Reception March 26, 2020 at 6 PM – 8 PM
Exhibition Date: 2/24 - 4/4, 2020

Katherine Simóne Reynolds’ practice is working in emotional dialects and psychogeographies of Blackness the “non”, and the importance of “anti-excellence”. Her work tries to physicalize emotions and experiences by constructing pieces that include portrait photography, video works, and choreography. In the process of making subtle changes to her practice she has learned that creating an environment built on intention brings the most disarming feelings to her work. Utilizing the Black body and her own personal narrative as a place of departure has made her question her own navigation of ownership, inclusion, and authenticity within a contemporary gaze. She draws inspiration from Black glamour, the Black athlete, and the Church. Her practice generally deals in Blackness from her own perspective.

Alexandra Arshanskaya: Spatial Exploration Through Line

Friday, February 28, 6 – 8 PM

Alexandra Arshanskaya’s study reconditions the venerable interior storefront window cases of the Historic Arcade Building as the home for her considerations of the concept of spatial perception as closely associated with time, manifest as murals. She explores the space as movement in time. To give shape to this aspect of “experienced” space, Arshanskaya expands her art practice with live performances. Live music broad- ens the experience of space and time for the audience. Picture, sound and space together become one single act.

James Austin Murray writes, “These are both a continuation of the works I’ve focused on over the last several years, and a fusion of work I had begun in my late 20’s. Reaching back in time to older work is something I felt would happen when I had begun this work so many years ago. Every so often, the artwork revisits an old path, stemming from a previous impulse. This bridging of old and new characteristics in my art and history makes connections that are both satisfying and revelatory. These paintings are about paint, objecthood, and, although these are not sculpture, their relief aspects take that direction. Where this work ends is still a mystery to me, and finding myself in this uncertain territory is most invigorating.” As a NYC firefighter during the September 11th attack in New York City, Murray paints on how his life was informed following the atrocity of that day. His current work is both about the paint and the light reflected on and within it. Murray states, “Sometimes the dark is where you find the best surprises.”

Richard Hull’s paintings fill their canvases with large swathes of color; blocks of opaque hues are overlaid with sweeping brushstrokes clustered together that function like non-transient ripples on the water, as rings within a tree, or of grooves on a record player as the latter description evokes the same feelings of growth that Hull’s painterly gestures achieve. The comparison describes the texture of thick paint upon the canvas some of the patterns, and the liveliness of the purposeful irregularities within Hull’s stroke.

The river is continually referred to in Tom Reed’s work. Once a symbol of time and change in his paintings, it now has become a collaborative partner. Reed spends days and hours on the river fly fishing. Mementos of this time on the river, beaver chewed sticks, logs, arrowheads, and junk, slowly began making their way into the studio and eventually into the work. Over time they formed a bridge between the river and the creative output in the studio. In this current exhibition, this is the before, Reed combines painted landscapes with small, wooden sculptures in the form of trail markers dotting a hiking trail. The largest, an arrow, reads simply Before. The word is both a warning and an invitation to view any ordinary present-day moment through the eyes of a time-traveler from the future. What would you change if you could go back in time, it asks? What if you are there right now?

The Mutable Archive is a video work by Patricia Olynyk. The Mutable Archive is a multi-layered performance video project that interrogates the lives of those housed in a special archive split between two continents. Who speaks for those who are lost, particularly in the absence of verifiable archival material? Olynyk photographed an inventory of human specimens collected by a 19th-century Viennese anatomist, Dr. Josef Hyrtl. Nine commissioned writers have each produced a speculative biography about a chosen subject in Hyrtl’s collection. Each performed script, a 4K cinematic video, interrogates the mechanics of storytelling and the roles of assumption and subjectivity in science. Each vignette is edited into a richly textured video performance, which is projected sequentially.

Frank Schwaiger’s new sculptures took years to complete. All of them reflect Frank’s passion for stonework: “I am a stone carver,” he says. “It’s what I was put here to do.” He sees his work in the ancient tradition of sculpture created not as art but as “transmission objects” embodying the human desire to “reach and control the beyond, the impossible-to-understand”. In his artist’ past statement, Frank writes, “We make things with our hands - that unique ability makes us human, and even more amazingly, earns us an awareness of our spirit. All art is riven with this quest for who we are. The root of my iconography can be traced back, like Paul Klee's, to 17th century Bavarian folk art and the making of things with the hand. That is who I am.”

A landscape of rural water towers fills Bruno David Gallery’s Window on Forsyth. Christina Shmigel presents a new series of sculptures based on an iconic image of the American landscape, the water tower. Whether adorning a building in NYC or marking a town along an interstate highway, the water tower has a strong hold on the collective imagination of Americans. As it stands alone in the distance, the tower speaks to a traveler’s sense of loneliness, to a sense of the stranger-passing-through. The water tower also announces the existence of a community and marks a place of settlement.

Public Hours Tuesday - Friday 11 - 6 pm, Saturday 11 - 5 pm and open by appointment. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

Monaco Gallery: Friday, 7 February 2020

Exhibitions open on Friday, February 7, from 7 – 10 pm
and run through March 6, 2020.

Edo Rosenblith conceived "Vultures at Midnight" as a way to provide a platform for four wildly different artists who he has collaborated with in the past, to come together to show their newest work. For Rosenblith, an important part of being an artist is knowing one’s limitations, engaging with a community of trusted peers, and sharing resources in order to support one another. This is how artistic communities survive and thrive. "Vultures at Midnight" will feature work by Edo Rosenblith, Janie Stamm, Jon Young and Erik S. Peterson.

Monaco’s Project Gallery accommodates a generous display of small works on paper by Peter Pranschke. Consisting of several hundred individual drawings, cut portions of drawings, and collages pasted together from their fragments, the show features pieces in various stages of completion that have slowly been collected and reworked over a thirteen-year period. Scenes and personalities from life and imagination are depicted in equal measure using colored pencil, India ink, erasure and gauche. This inflated selection of material, sifted from an even larger and more congested pool of otherwise useless debris, highlights the artist's habitual practice of mark making and provides insight into a creative process that yields an overabundance of mindlessly rendered images.

OPENING RECEPTION Thursday, February 6  4-7 PM

Too Hot to Sing is the result of Kasey Fowler-Finn’s research of how global warming directly affects the abilities of insects to find suitable mates. Her study focused on the treehopper. For this exhibition she collaborated with sound artist Stephen Vitiello whose recordings show how vibrational signals sound at different temperatures, and with Impact Media Lab, a creative agency for scientists.

Fowler Finn’s study shows how climate change can impact mating success and, ultimately, survival of species that communicate through vibrations. It is important to note that more than 90% of insects use vibrations to communicate within and between species.

Vitiello and Fowler-Finn used a specialized laser recording device to record the sounds of insects as they moved on the stems and leaves of plants. Vitiello then manipulated the sound recordings to make them audible to humans.

This exhibition, a collaboration between a scientist and an artist brings climate change into sharp focus as one of the existential challenges humanity faces.
