JACINDA BAYNE: MERGING LANDSCAPES
West Australian Artist Jacinda Bayne invites us pause. Open fields of color, smooth gradients of blues/turquoise, familiar landforms, a clearing in a forest and calm waters reflect the world above and below. Fusion of experiences and memories - fleeting moments in time. Light filtering through trees and water, suspended in time all create windows to look back, stand still, breath and reflect.

JULY - AUGUST - 2017
A group exhibition curated by
Dominique Ramirez and Michael Barkagan.
“Hooligans” comprises the artwork of three native New Yorkers: Ian Sullivan, Josh Fayer and Victoria De Lesseps. The group exhibition explores the impact both physical and social environments leave on the human psyche. Flooded with mischief, Ian Sullivan’s cityscape murals and portraits contrast his colorful personas against the dark realities of city life. Working with resin on canvas, Josh Fayer manifests the connection between consciousness and space with his abstract interpretations of nature. Victoria De Lessep’s mixed media paintings address gender roles and the hypocrisy of society.

ANTHONY HADEN-GUEST: THE FURTHER CHRONICLES OF NOW
“The Further Chronicles of Now” takes cartooning to new heights as well new media and with his target-subjects culled from the art world, the club world, high-society and inspired by our social disorders, neuroses, and the current state of all things, Haden-Guest so too brings a refreshingly new breath of humor to the comedic world of that great thing we call life. Presented in partnership with The Villa America Fine Art, (Quiet Lunch May, 2017)

PASSAGE TO ISRAEL
Passage to Israel explores the layered, soulful beauty of the land of Israel. Through the work of twenty renowned photographers, Passage to Israel reveals how the people of Israel transformed a desert land of ancient ruins into a breathtaking composition of the natural and man-made, a gorgeous montage of cobblestone streets and wineries, sculpture gardens and Bauhaus architecture, innovative interiors and verdant olive plantations. Curated by Karen Lehrman Bloch and Ronni Anderson, Passage to Israel examines how the small strip of land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea became a unique bridge between Africa, Asia, and Europe, a profusion of cultures, customs, and traditions.
