The Carter Burden Gallery, formerly gallery 307, is pleased to announce three new shows opening and running from June 26-July 24, 2014.
In his first solo show at the Carter Burden Gallery, Bill Richards’ poured paintings frame and interlace space with streams and flowing masses of pure color, giving the impression of simultaneous occurrence. His process results in misdirected colors while maintaining the color autonomy of convergent wet paint. Donald Kuspit describes Richards’ paintings as “gestural, dramatic, majestic: the ‘gestures’ are grand and bold, their interaction seemingly confused yet oddly coherent—they seem to converge and diverge simultaneously, forming a kind of fluid Gordian knot that seems to unravel as it is tied—and their colors are fresh and luminous.”
Disco Ball will feature photographs of Flo Fox and Len Speier capturing the wild, frenetic, and sometimes gritty, days of disco. Through their images, viewers will be transported to a time of Warhol, nightclubs and unfettered revelry.
For her On the Wall installation, Marilyn Sontag will explore aesthetic contrasts and complements. Her improvised environment will utilize planned and unplanned elements, including cut and torn shapes of paper spiraling and curling against panels of color. The resulting environment will capture the illusion of movement and ethereal lightness.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Friday 11am-5pm, Saturday 11am-6pm
