showing: Peter Barrickman, Mari Eastman, Michelle Grabner, Sheila Held, Margaret Lee, Tyson Reeder, & Emily Sundblad
The 16th edition of the fair, to be held December 6–9, 2018 at Ice Palace Studios, is dedicated to showcasing new art and to celebrating the rising talents from around the globe.
NADA holds a renowned art fair to vigorously pursue our goals of exploring new or underexposed art that is not typical of the “art establishment.” NADA Miami is the one of the only major American art fairs to be produced by a non-profit organization, and is recognized as a much needed alternative assembly of the world’s youngest and strongest art galleries dealing with emerging contemporary art.
FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art is an exhibition comprised of artist commissions, performances, films, and public programs that will launch its inaugural edition in July of 2018. An American City: Eleven Cultural Exercises, in collaboration with museums, civic institutions, and alternative spaces across Cleveland, Akron and Oberlin, will showcase an ambitious roster of projects, including performance and theater throughout the landscape and built environment. With a roster of national, international and area-based artists at all points in their career, FRONT will examine the ever-changing and politically urgent conditions of an American city.
Michelle Grabner is the Artistic Director and some participating artists include: Paul Druecke, Sky Hopinka, Microlights Cinema, and Martine Syms among others.
Nathalie Karg and the Green Gallery are delighted to present a special one week exhibition of new paintings by the Milwaukee-based painter Peter Barrickman. The show takes its name, Elwood Arms, from an apartment building in Milwaukee that was home to countless artists, writers, and musicians, and was afectionately nicknamed after its caretaker and most senior tenant.
The show is comprised of eleven acrylic and oil paintings inspired by buildings such as Elwood Arms and their high-ceilinged lobbies. The transient space of a lobby—a place of continual coming and going—becomes a metaphor for the open narrative potential of painting. Considering the ways a painting simultaneously denies and allows reading, Barrickman’s continual experiments with alternating forms and repeating colors create a transitional visual space in which the public expression of the artist meets with the private experience of the viewer. Put in the artist’s own words, “it is a formal renewal that serves to clarify and awaken the subject.”
The show will be accompanied by the release of the artist book, Burnt Plastic (Magazine, 2018).
Arts Center curators collaborated with Polly Morris, executive director of the Lynden Sculpture Garden and administrator of the fellowship, in selecting eight past recipients of the Nohl Fellowship to participate in the exhibition. The gallery will feature new works by Cecelia Condit, Kim Miller, Sonja Thomsen, Sheila Held, Sarah Luther, Anne Kingsbury, Maggie Sasso, and Robin Jebavy, and Mary Nohl pieces from the Arts Center’s collection.
