She lives and works in New York City and Truro, Massachusetts with her husband and their two daughters.
Sarah will present new paintings in the gallery August 10 – 29, 2018
ANNA POOR is expanding her series, ‘Since St. Sebastian was no help’. Anna Poor continues to investigate the juxtaposition between fabricated myths, art history and the political climate. These new anthropomorphic pieces find themselves adrift, in boats too small, with wheels frozen in place. A circus of Shipwrecked souls in horror and humor
Anna culls references from the old English salt fired ceramic Martin Bros, Giacometti, Renaissance groupings, and the Pieta, balancing maternal care and love with distracted neglect. The human condition, trying to be brave and foolish, with genitalia and wings for all to see.
This show will be a continuation of exploration into high fired, salt glazed ceramics and unique bronzes
RICHARD KLEIN is an artist, curator, and writer. As an artist, he has exhibited widely, including the Neuberger Museum of Art at SUNY Purchase, Caren Golden Fine Art, New York, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, WI, Hales Gallery, London, Gavlak Gallery, Palm Beach, FL, Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, Portland, OR, and the Tufts University Art Gallery, Medford, MA. His work is included in numerous public and private collections, including the Norton Family Collection, Santa Monica, CA, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA, and the Connecticut Artists Collection (State of Connecticut), Hartford, CT. Since 1999 he has been exhibitions director of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. In his sixteen year career as a curator of contemporary art he has organized over 80 exhibitions, including solo shows of the work of Roy Lichtenstein, Janine Antoni, Sol LeWitt, Mark Dion, Michael Joo, Hank Willis Thomas, Brad Kahlhamer, Roy McMakin, Mary Temple, Jessica Stockholder, Tom Sachs, and Elana Herzog. Major curatorial projects at The Aldrich have included Fred Wilson: Black Like Me (2006), Elizabeth Peyton: Portrait of an Artist (2008) and Shimon Attie: MetroPAL.IS. (2011). His essays on art and culture have appeared in Cabinet Magazine and have been included in books published by Hatje Cantz, Damiani, Picturebox, and the University of Chicago Press, among others. In November of 2014 he will be exhibiting his work at Aberson Exhibits in Tulsa, Oklahoma in connection with a panel discussion based on the book Living and Sustaining a Creative Life published in 2013. Klein was one of the contributing essayists for the book.
PAUL STOPFORTH continues his quest into making material icons with a new series of portraits that will be exhibited from August 31 – Sept. 19. This sequence of gouache and acrylic paintings on 12 x 12″ wood panels see the return of the figure to his work after a residency on Robben Island in 2004 opened an investigation into the landscape. Paul mines the earth and its history for sites that have seen movements and suffering brought about by political shifts and patriarchal conflicts as sources for the work. These sites are places where wounds and healing, strife and kindness, death and breath have altered the skin of the planet. The figures in his work are representatives from specific cultures, political movements, resistances and communities of suffering and hope. They take universal positions, or they interject, interrupt and give language to the ways that politics and power disrupt and distort the lives of householders throughout history. A sculptor as well, Paul’s images are born in drawing, rendered with paint, and maintain the tension of essential symbols and objects.
NEW at SCHOOLHOUSE
The gallery is pleased to welcome ANNE BERESFORD to our roster of exhibitors and eager to share her prints and drawings with our friends.
Born in Indiana, Beresford has been working as an artist for most of the time since then. She has exhibited nationally and internationally at such venues as the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts, Havana, Cuba, the University Museum of Contemporary Art, UMass (Amherst), The International Print Center (NYC), Judi Rotenberg Gallery (Boston) and Gallery Hasta, Hyderabad, India. In addition to painting, drawing, printmaking etc etc, she has been a professional actor, performing with The American National Theater Co., The Kennedy Center, Washington D.C. and The Cornerstone Theater Co, L.A. etc. Favorite roles include Beatrice, Lulu, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Winnie & a Rhine Maiden.
Beresford has taught at the Bow and Arrow Press (Book Arts) in Cambridge, MA, at the Art Institute of Boston, at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, MA and as an Assistant Professor in the Visual & Environmental Studies Department at Harvard University. She holds an MA from New York University and a BA from Harvard University.
Beresford’s work is included in a number of public & private collections, including the The Houghton Rare Book Library, Harvard University, University Museum of Contemporary Art, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Boston College, Boston Public Library & The New York Public Library.
JASON ROHLF makes vibrant and textured acrylic and collage paintings. Layers are painted over and over again; the final result hints at a hidden history as traces of previous layers are revealed as texture. City streets, digital media, and maps have been important influences of Rohlf’s work. Projects include a collaboration with Oehme Graphics where he created the “Field Guides Print Project” that included a suite of unique monotypes and solar plate editions, and most recently a screenprinted edition for Folioleaf. His current project, ‘The Shop Rag Project’ will be featured in August 2018 at the gallery.
Originally from Milwaukee, Rohlf moved to Brooklyn in 1999. He was exhibited his work across the United States, created a public installation for the MTA, and has lectured for the Pratt Institute, Bowling Green University and Lawrence University among others. He is the recipient of the Sam and Adelle Golden Foundation for the Arts Artist in Residency.
We’re pleased to present new work from TED KINCAID. Ted will exhibit a new series of cloud photographs from June 30 – July 19, 2017.
In addition we will feature a special limited edition portfolio titled, ‘Not For Another Hour But For This Hour‘ consisting of 12 Photographs (ed. 5) @ 19 x 15″.
TED KINCAID is exhibited and collected nationally and has received considerable critical attention for his photographically based work. He has been reviewed in ARTFORUM, ARTPAPER and ART ON PAPER and is included in the permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Museum of Fine Arts in San Antonio, the Neiman Marcus Collection, American Airlines, the Belo Corporation, the Microsoft Corporation, Pfizer, Inc, Reader’s Digest Corporate Collection, the City of Seattle, Washington, the U.S. State Department and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters in Washington, DC.
His work has been seen in many gallery exhibitions and is in numerous museum and corporate collections, as well as a number of commissions, including designing the cover for Neiman Marcus’ The Book twice, a large 22 foot mosaic for DFW International Airport’s Terminal D, and a two story mammoth cloud canvas that anchors Dallas’ Omni Convention Center Hotel.
Over the course of two decades, Kincaid has systematically subverted the notion of an objective photographic record. As his art continues to explore the play between painting and photography, Kincaid is one of several artists creating a new painting informed by photo-imagery and a new photography influenced by painting. The artist has explored this conceptual discourse through multiple series of work, deftly riding the line between the construction of totally manufactured images that bear the aesthetic of seemingly straightforward photographic images and actual photographs that buzz with vibrant palettes almost too fantastic to be considered plausible.
