Regina Silveira @ Alexander Gray
May 26 – July 29, 2011
Alexander Gray Associates is pleased to present the gallery’s second exhibition with the Brazilian artist, Regina Silveira. Since the 1960s, Silveira’s work has defied genre, moving between forms of installation, printmaking, sculpture and photography to explore visual distortion, perspective and scale.
For her exhibition at the gallery, Silveira presents her signature vinyl-decal mural-installations. The main installation, from her celebrated series, Desaparencia, depicts black and white diagrams of artists’ ateliers, graphically suggesting the ghosts of easels, tables, palettes, and other tools of the artist’s studio. In its iteration at Alexander Gray Associates, Silveira’s installation suggests the disappearance of traditional studio practice and location, as well as expectations of creation and alchemy that surround artistic mythology.

On Monday, May 16th, beginning at 7 pm there will be an opportunity to meet the wonderful artist, Amy Cutler. She will be in the house at Spoonbill Books to sign her new book, Turtle Fur. We look forward to your dropping by.
During the past decade, Amy Cutler (*1974 in Poughkeepsie, New York) has become internationally known for exquisitely detailed narrative works of art. Set in a richly imagined universe, created through a pastiche of memories, observations and insights, they are populated mostly by women engaged in enigmatic tasks and impossible situations: tigers are mended and restriped; figures emerge from the rocky crags of a fjord.
With faces that are both resolute and introspective, Cutler’s women symbolize the emotional complexities of real life situations. This publication will premiere new paintings, drawings, and prints, also including a selection of earlier works and a special section devoted to Alterations, a sculpture installation created for the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid.
Amy Cutler is represented by Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, New York.
The Repurposed Library, a Book-Art Workshop with Lisa Occhipinti
126 Crosby Street, New York, NY
The Repurposed Library by designer and mixed media artist Lisa Occhipinti, is a collection of DIY projects that utilize every imaginable part of a book—from hardback cover to individual pages—to create new art objects and practical items for the home. Bibliophiles, DIY enthusiasts, design aficionados, and creative dabblers will find inspiration in the book’s unique art-meets-craft aesthetic. Often using no more than a craft knife, glue, and a little ingenuity, Occhipinti demonstrates how “orphaned” books can become home décor accessories, such as wreaths and vases, as well as functional items, such as shelves, storage boxes, and clocks. This event is free, but $20 buys you a copy of Lisa’s new book, an old book to make art from, instructions and use of craft supplies. Guests of all ages are welcome. Only a love of books is required!
Please join us for an artist talk featuring Tal Halpern, Wayne Hodge, Katarina Jerinic, Jennie C. Jones, and Angie Waller in conjunction with their exhibition featuring new work produced here at the Center during their 2010 residency. These New York-based emerging artists were offered space, time and support to explore the production and exhibition of artist’s books and related work in year-long residencies.
Suggested Admission: $5 members / $10 non-members

New York, NY. The New York Academy of Art is pleased to present UNCHARTED, a group exhibition featuring original paintings, drawings, sculpture and prints by sixty talented emerging artists.
Immersed for two years in an intensive learning environment that combines rigorous skills and conceptual training, these MFA candidates plumbed the depths of a time-honored artistic language from which they are creating innumerable distinct dialects. The 2011 graduates of the New York Academy of Art reveal that they are sixty individuals striding sure-footed onto an entirely contemporary landscape.
A catalogue will be available, featuring an essay by Donald Kuspit.

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY APRIL 16, 2011 FROM 6:30 – 8 PM
ON VIEW FROM APRIL 16 – MAY 29, 2011
Muriel Guépin Gallery is pleased to announce “Juxtaposed” a new group show featuring the artwork of Béatrice Coron and Robert Szot. The opening reception is Saturday, April 16th from 6:30-8pm, and will be on view through May 29th.
Béatrice Coron’s paper cut images tell stories inventing situations, cities and worlds which all have their own logic and patterns. These compositions include memories, associations of words, ideas, observations and thoughts that unfold in improbable juxtapositions. Coron researchs collective memories and myths, questioning the notions of identity and belonging.
In her site-specific installation called “drifting Worlds” (displayed in the dramatic street level window of the gallery) the window is used not to see out but in, placing the spectator in an outsider/insider situation. Shadows, reminiscent of film noir and voyeurism, leaves room for multiple interpretations.
Béatrice Coron’s work has been purchased by major museum collections, such as the Metropolitan Museum, The Walker Art center and The Getty. She’s had numerous solo shows in galleries in the U.S.A., France and Japan.
Robert Szot will present his latest paintings called BLS (roman conflict). Szot’s oil paintings are wrestling with the conflict of impermanence. Szot’s methodology is primarily one of problem solving. Fine details are sometimes marred or sacrificed until the final composition has reached a more dynamic and complex resolution.Thin layers of activity and line drawing peer through a more dominant foreground of broad color fields. This process provides a depth that becomes sharper in definition over time.
Curator Robert Bunkin writes: “Robert Szot’s abstract paintings seem to come from the urban environment. They are reined in by architectonic structures, broad fields of color are interrupted by smaller gestures and idiosyncratic forms…his work has a palimpsest effect, where layers of previous activity bleed through the final layers of paint.”
Robert Szot lives and works in Brooklyn. He has exhibited throughout America and internationally. Szot has shown with The Painting Center and Melody Weir in New York and with the Saatchi Gallery in London. His work can be found in private collections worldwide. A portion of the artist’s proceeds will be donated to Rett Syndrome research.

From the Artist~
I really believe I captured the look and feel of the Muppet theater, more than I have seen in most movies. I know that many people were sad that this Muppet theater was not created. I hope this satisfies that need to see what could have been.
