Pattern Recognition, Ely Center of Contemporary Art, online show

January 9 - April 30, 2023

Are our brains essentially pattern recognition machines? We are all wired to see patterns - fractals in nature, trends in events, even behaviors that reoccur over time. Patterns help us create a sense of order and balance in our worlds, and allow us to attach meaning to objects and experiences.

Pattern recognition has been an important and powerful evolutionary tool that allows us to make meaningful connections, gain new perspectives, and increase our understanding of the world leading to new discoveries and innovations.

Explore Pattern Recognition and see how each of our featured artist reckons with life’s patterns and the meanings they ascribe to them.

Trash, Local Project, Long Island City, NY
Local Project is pleased to present “TRASH”, an exhibition that provokes a conversation about the environment through art. We ask the question, “what is our relationship with trash?” How could something that was once loved, treasured or used be tossed away? Can we give these objects a second chance and utilize them to create something new and beautiful? Visitors are invited to view our eclectic collection of objects, assemblages, and creations. This exhibition was curated by Tim Kelly.
Nearly White, Nearly Black, Artists Living Room

August 20 - September 10, 2022

Nearly White presents work of 12 artists. In their interpretations, Nearly White could be purity, an ecstasy, an illusion, or an objective mindset; it could also represent chaotic situations, strength in coldness, and inner reflections... The possibilities go on.

Scale within the Artist’s Practice: Part Two - Landscape and Abstraction, NYAC @ Art at First, NYC

"Artists grasp ideas and set out to make visible what has occurred in their mind’s eye. How then to decide the scale of the idea? The works in this show demonstrate, instead of telling, how the urge to materialize an idea compels them to create smaller or larger…and why."
- Cecilia André, Curator

USPS Art Project, InLiquid, Philadelphia, PA

“Little Moons”, my #USPSArtProject with Liz Jaff / @jaffworks. This collaborative piece will be for sale at @InLiquidArt Artist Studio Gallery in Philadelphia, November 23 - January 17, 2021. It was very challenging to alter Liz’ quiet and symmetrical piece. It took me time to put down my inhibition to bring a different melody to “Little Moons”. Graphite, colored pencil and strass on cut-out paper.

“Armadillo” (lower) is the other part of the project. Because this art project created and run by the amazing Christina Massey is all about supporting the US Postal Service, I collaged vintage white envelopes in a quiet and symmetrical pattern challenging Liz on her own turf and secured them with a red thread, a material Liz uses in her quilt-making practice. She had to sharpen her exacto to cut through, fold and make the envelope background bloom into a beautiful art piece.

Splinters in the ongoing normal, Project V Gallery

New York City, N.Y., March 14, 2022 | Project Gallery V presents Splinters in the ongoing normal: the Spring Open Call Exhibition 2022 with artworks by 33 different artists. Spanning a range of artistic mediums, including painting, photography, video, and mixed-media installations, this online exhibition offers an expansive, raw, and nuanced look at many of the issues and affective states that characterize our present-day realities.

Many of these works reveal narratives that are at once personal and universal. Although they are inspired by unique experiences and perspectives, the exhibited works elicit notions of tenderness, loss, isolation and fragmentation — emotions that have increasingly textured our collective consciousness over the past two years. Yet, other works also speak to a sense of greater joy, wonder, and resilience, often deploying humor as a creative strategy to deal with the issues that they surface. Together, they explore a wide range of subjects, including gender identity, personhood, memory, and domestic life — as well as disability, climate change, media saturation, and systemic biases.

Survival Tools for the Age of Ultra Anxiety, Plaxall Gallery

The exhibition “Survival Tools for the Age of Ultra Anxiety” takes as its premise the state of ultra-anxiety our culture is functioning within due to the pandemic and worldwide social and economic upheaval. It questions whether our endlessly competitive society, which rewards selfish behavior over altruism, has given us the tools needed to survive or whether artists are needed to lead us away from the brink of extinction.

This group exhibition proposes physical, emotional and psychological survival through adaptation to tactics, methods and tools central to artistic creation but commonly marginalized by societies focused on expediency and short term financial profit. Through gadgets, gizmos, interactive machinery and video narratives a course forward will be proposed that values and utilizes unfettered imagination, rampant invention, irrational systems, dream logic, humor and the impossible. This exhibition depends upon and makes the case for a world built on the notion that things are not fixed in their identities but are mutable and can be changed into other things.

Logic makes sense to us because we invented it to understand the world, but our environment has no responsibility to conform to our logical expectations and in fact does not, as quantum investigation makes clear. We must adapt to a reality much more complex and unpredictable than our rational viewpoint has presented in order to survive and flourish.

The group exhibition, “Survival Tools for an Age of Ultra-Anxiety’, will be emblematic of this crucial sea change in thought by embodying its values in diverse, challenging and liberating forms.” 

Mostly Monochrome, WoArtBlog & 1st Dibs, Online show

Featuring artists using a mostly monochromatic approach to the creation of their work.

“Artworks with the reduced variant of color grab their viewers attention instead through their process, materials, composition and tonality. ⁠

As one scrolls through the exhibition, you’ll be visually transitioning through subtle shifts in the monochromatic palette and visually stimulated through the juxtaposition of works from minimal color field paintings to extremely detailed and laborious drawings and sculptures."⁠

The Fifth Element, Outlander Gallery, Jersey City, NJ

Outlander Gallery in collaboration with Sky Kim is pleased to announce The Fifth Element exhibition, which brings together five compelling international artists in a show that challenges how we observe, perceive, recreate and reinterpret the Five Elements of Nature; Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Space (Aether/Void). The connective tissue that links their works is found in organic images and metaphors which suggest alternative, metaphoric readings of identity, sexuality, fertility, transformation, growth, spirituality, and personal interpretation of living. Each artist represents an element engaging in stirring gestures and organic forms with the powerful life forces of Gaia that float, multiply, clash, divide, regenerate and evolve within their vigorous vitality. ⁠

Participating Artists:⁠
Peter C. Emerick, Pauline Galiana, Joohyun Kang, Donna Conklin King, Jay Christopher King⁠
