Carter Burden Gallery Announces Three New Exhibitions by Re-Emerging Older Artists
Three new exhibitions featuring the unique artwork of re-emerging older artists will be on display March 21 – April 17, 2019 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 Carter Burden Gallery is an initiative of the Carter Burden Network, a leader in aging services in NYC that promotes the well-being of New Yorkers 60 and older through a continuum of services, advocacy, arts and culture and volunteer programs.
The East Gallery will feature the exhibition “Being Still/Still Being” by artists Dr. Etta B. Ehrlich and Alan Neider. In her first exhibition at the Carter Burden Gallery, Dr. Ehrlich presents antique glass bottles that feature stenciled phrases to represent intensions of awareness and reflection. As a Psychologist and Meditation Teacher, Dr. Ehrlich explains that her art provides tools for reflection, insight and spiritual development. She says, “They are an invitation to awareness, asking us if we are truly who we appear to be to ourselves.” Dr. Ehrlich’s works has been shown in the Andrew Edlin Gallery in NYC, the Lambert Castle Museum in New Jersey and in the permanent collection of the Magnus Museum in Berkley, CA.
Artist Alan Neider presents selections from his series’ Bag Paintings, Loops, and For EM in his first exhibition with the Carter Burden Gallery. His large scale, sculptural paintings are cut, sewn together, painted, sprayed and stained with bright colors. Neider uses textured wood, fabric and ceramics to create a complex surface for each painting. Neider’s works has been on display around the country and the world, including the Galerie Kremers in Berlin, the Overlook Gallery in Chicago, Litchenfire Gallery in NYC, and the Lowe Museum in Florida.
In the West Gallery, the exhibition “Low Tide Art” is presented by Ira Pearlstein. Using found objects from the streets, sidewalks, a local salvage yard, and low tide at either end of Flatbush Avenue or in the city’s waterways, Pearlstein’s sculptures blur the line between representation and abstraction. Pearlstein says that through his eyes, these objects are waiting to be put together, taken apart and put together again in different configurations.
For the On the Wall exhibit, printmaker Karin Bruckner presents an interactive installation called “The Art Of Letting Go.” Occupying both the east and west walls of the gallery, Bruckner’s work creates a reflective and interactive space for visitors. On the west wall, her piece “InARoll” is a colorful display of a series of tubes that represent a three-dimensional concept of wrapping things up and moving on. On the east wall, Bruckner’s a two-dimensional piece, “Wait and Tea,” invites viewers to exercise patience.
Bruckner’s work has sold worldwide and is in private collections in Europe, South America, Australia and the United States. A represented artist at Susan Eley Fine Art Gallery, NY, she has been featured by West Elm as well as online venues such as Art Crasher, Fresh Rag and Refinery 29.
