10 Twenty 10 at Claire Oliver in New York. Now showing through June 16, 2012
New York! Be sure to get your art on this weekend and stop by Claire Oliver in Chelsea to celebrate the historic 10 year anniversary of the gallery in New York and their 20th year in business! Wow! What an accomplishment! They’ve pulled out the big guns for this exhibit and are showcasing the work of 10 artists who represent the artistic vision of the gallery. The impressive list of artists in the exhibition is Norbert Brunner, Beth Cavener Stichter, Andy Denzler, Andrew Erdos, Herb Jackson, Stephanie Lempert, Jesse McCloskey, Jennifer Poon, Bernardi Roig and Judith Schaechter.
On a personal note, I’ve had so many great experiences at Claire Oliver and I’ve been exposed to a lot of life changing art and I’ve met so many great artists inside their gallery. In addition, it’s always a delight to speak with gallery owners Claire and Ian and discuss art and our ‘past lives’ in California. For these memories you cannot put a price on, I am truly thankful and I wish them even more success in the next chapter of their gallery. The photos you see are merely a tiny sample of the exhibit, so don’t delay and head over to the gallery to toast their first 10 years in New York and see some really great art while you are at it!

"Dissonace and Contemplation" by Andy Denzler. Now showing at Claire Oliver in NYC through October 15, 2011
I love it when I walk into an art gallery and feel an immediate connection to the works inside. Of course the brain can give you the quick fix of letting you know whether or not you enjoy what you see, but I am talking about your senses taking you on a journey. “Dissonance and Contemplation” by Swiss artist Andy Denzler, which is now showing at Claire Oliver in New York, did just that for me. The works are oil on canvas and feature Denzler’s signature style of bands of pigment that alternate between static. Prevalent themes in this exhibit are isolation and connection, hope and confusion. Is life blurry or is it clear? More importantly, is there anything we can do about it or should we just accept it and enjoy the parts of life that are clear? All is not obscured so there is hope! A range of emotions for sure, but fused together in a way that will have you thinking about the works long after you’ve left the gallery.
You can’t see the detail and the richness of these works in photos, so I encourage you to take a look at these luscious works with your own eyes.
“Dissonance and Contemplation” is running through October 15, 2011 at Claire Oliver (located at 513 West 26th Street) in New York. Don’t miss it!
