The Art Scene 02.01.24

Mon, 01/29/2024 - 10:52
"Tennis Court," from Jeremy Dennis's "The Rise" series, will be at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in Bridgehampton.

About Brooks and Park
James Brooks and Charlotte Park and the effort to restore their Springs home and studios will be the subject of a talk by the artist Scott Bluedorn on Sunday at 3 p.m. in the galleries of the Leiber Collection in Springs.

After moving to New York City in 1945, the painters became friends with Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Franz Kline, and Willem and Elaine de Kooning. They moved to the East End in 1948 and eventually settled in Springs.

Mr. Bluedorn, a member of the Brooks-Park Art and Nature Center committee, will talk about the couple's work, their lives, and the effort to make the art and nature center a reality.

A registration link for the free program is on the Leiber Collection website.

Window Installation
"A-Side," a site-specific artwork by Jeffrey Tranchell recently installed in the windows of the John Little Barn at the Arts Center at Duck Creek in Springs, can be seen through March 31.

A glass and wood panel screen, the piece is made of composite board incised with diamond-shaped observation windows of stained glass. "A-Side" alludes to the vocabulary of protective barriers whose open "windows" allow views into New York City construction sites.

The windows are on view from dawn to dusk, when the grounds are open to the public. Optimal viewing time is at dusk. 

An Indoor Garden
The Leiber Collection is returning to Kathryn Markel Fine Arts in Bridgehampton with a new exhibition of work by artists from its "Garden of Friends" shows. Organized by Ann Fristoe Stewart, the collection's director and curator, it will open with a reception on Saturday from 3:30 to 6 p.m. and continue through Feb. 25.

The show includes work by Monica Banks, Roisin Bateman, Nicole Corbett, Pipi Deer, Jeremy Dennis, Margaret Garrett, Robin Gianis, Donna Green, Sylvia Hommert, Lindsay Morris, Warren Neidich, Mamoun Nukumanu, Christine Sciulli, and Aurelio Torres.

On Dennis Oppenheim
The closing reception at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill for "Artists Choose Parrish, Parts II and III," set for Sunday at 11 a.m., will feature a conversation with Alice Aycock and Amy Oppenheim about Dennis Oppenheim, whose work was selected by Ms. Aycock for the second iteration of the exhibition. Both women, who are friends, were married to Oppenheim.

The event will begin with a brunch reception in the lobby at 11 and be followed by the panel, which will be moderated by Corinne Erni, the museum's chief curator, at noon.

Tickets are $20, $18 for senior citizens, $15 for members' guests, and free for members, students, and children.

Wallace in Chelsea
"Leaves Turn Inside You," a solo show of mixed-media paintings by Ryan Wallace, opens Thursday at the Susan Inglett Gallery in Chelsea with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. It will remain on view through March 9.

According to the gallery, Mr. Wallace repurposes fragments from earlier and developing pieces, seaming, layering, excavating, and manipulating the surface of his works to incorporate a diversity of textures and techniques. The rigorous, process-based pieces engage with themes of entropy and regeneration.

The artist, who has exhibited internationally and is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, among others, moonlights as the owner of East Hampton's Halsey McKay Gallery.

Firestone in Florida
The Eric Firestone Gallery of East Hampton and Manhattan has expanded its reach to West Palm Beach, Fla., where it is opening a group exhibition titled "A New York Minute." A reception is being held Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Presented in partnership with New Wave Art Wknd, a nonprofit arts organization founded by Sarah Gavlak, the show will rotate work by significant American artists working across abstraction from the 1950s through the '80s.

Among the 14 artists represented are Joe Overstreet, Jeanne Reynal, Miriam Schapiro, Mimi Gross, and Nina Yankowitz. The show will run through March 15.

Onna House Flies South
Onna House, the 1960s modernist house of Lisa Perry, a designer, collector, and curator, has served as a showcase in East Hampton for art, furniture, and objects created by women artists and designers since May 2022.

The gallery at the Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach is the site of Onna House's first pop-up exhibition, which will be on view through April 1. The Florida venue has been designed to feel like a welcoming and inclusive community space where visitors can learn about and support the careers of women artists. It includes ceramics, textiles, sculpture, painting, and furniture by more than 20 artists, among them the East End residents Alice Hope, Amy Wickersham, and Almond Zigmund.
