Carter Burden Gallery Announces New Exhibitions by Re-Emerging Older Artists
Three new exhibitions featuring the unique artwork of re-emerging older artists will be on display November 15, 2018 – December 6, 2018 at the Carter Burden Gallery, located at 548 West 28th Street #534 in Manhattan. The Carter Burden Gallery showcases the vibrant, cutting-edge and transformative art that is the product of the unique cultural wealth possessed by older professional artists.
The East Gallery will feature the exhibition To Life: Its Spirit and Its Elements by Mary Rieser Heintjes and Vera Sapozhnikova. Heintjes will present abstract, dynamic sculptures that combine welded steel and glass. Her love of glass, color and light are strong elements in her pieces, which are inspired by her observations of nature. Her work has been shown in the Brooklyn Museum, Urban Glass Gallery, Brooklyn Public Library Central Gallery, and Pratt Institute; and featured in the Art Section of Observer Magazine, BRIC Arts Media and New York Art Review.
Presenting large, abstract and vibrant oil paintings, Sapozhnikova created her pieces while she was an Artist in Residence at the Carter Burden/Leonard Covello Program. A self-taught painter, Sapozhnikova has evolved her style from representational to abstract, while adopting a signature color palette that includes rich crimson, orange and blue. Sapozhnikova began exhibiting her work in 2010, including a solo and group show at the Carter Burden Gallery (formerly Gallery 307), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Employee Group Art show.
The Six Lenses exhibition in the West Gallery will feature a group of six photographers who use photography to express their personal experiences, including traveling, fashion events and exploring their home cities. Artists also incorporate unconventional techniques in their pieces such as drawing on an image or printing on silk organza, resulting in a dynamic and eclectic exhibition.
Artists include: John Lamparski, Akemi Takeda, Leon Yost, Mitsuya Okumura, Katherine D. Crone and Sarah Petitt, who curated the exhibition.
In the On the Wall installation, Kiyoshi Otsuka presents a fifteen-foot long monochromatic painting inspired by organic forms and water. Having worked for the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, Otsuka’s work is influenced by roots, trees, water and the weather. His work has been exhibited in galleries in New York, London, Pennsylvania and Japan; and he has recently worked in a studio at the landmark building, ArtsWestchester, in White Plains, New York.
