Reese Gallery: Friday, 4 May 2018

UNCHARTED: a solo exhibition by artist Julie Snidle

Opening reception: May 4th, 2018 | 6-9 pm

In the upcoming solo exhibition, "Uncharted," encaustic painter Julie Snidle explores new territory. Her atmospheric compositions suggest a landscapes of inner discovery. 

"When we tell the universe what we want, the universe answers back, often in surprising and unexpected ways. As we move from what is familiar to that which is unknown, the myriad of intangible possibilities surrounds us in our thoughts and in our dreams. Not knowing for certain where we will land or when, puts us in a zone that is both unsettling and exhilarating. My work speaks to that zone of uncertainty, that feeling of distance before connection. " ~ Julie Snidle

Snidle is a Core Support Instructor and representative for R&F Handmade Paints based in Kingston, NY. Her work can be found in galleries and collections across the U.S. Reese Gallery is honored to present Julie Snidle and her painterly journey in her solo exhibition, Unhcharted.

Philip Slein Gallery: thursday, 26 April 2018

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 26th, 5-8 PM
Exhibition runs through May 26th, 2018  

From purely performative work based on ideas only, to performative work based on drawings which act as rehearsal; from premeditated work executed impulsively, to premeditated work rigidly executed--abstract artists distill art to its essence, and conduct themselves with complete freedom in this surprisingly expansive universe. 

The artists in this show--Sharon Brant, Amy Feldman, Richard Kalina, Russell Maltz. David Row, Robert Sagerman, Kate Shepherd, Robert Swain, John Zinsser--pursue, in the words of Richard Kalina, "an investigation into a grammar of abstraction that takes into account formal strategies, wide-ranging references, and the set of ideas that have swirled around modernist painting and the art that followed it."  For some of these artists, as for Kalina, the pursuit allows for improvisation within premeditated systems; for others, improvisation is the system.

Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 10 AM - 5 PM
