“Come Undone” by Beth Cavener Stichter at Claire Oliver in New York. Now showing through October 20, 2012.

The art of Beth Cavener Sticther has to be seen in person to fully appreciate the detail (and the awesomeness).  Her latest exhibit “Come Undone” at the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York is definitely something you will want to see as the gallery has been taken over by the dark side of human emotion… cloaked in animal skin!

The mixed media works are primarily made out of stoneware and when you see them in person, not only will you be wowed by the detail, but you will wonder how the pieces were transported and installed.

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.

Stephanie Lempert

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!

“Smiling Broadly” by Norbert Brunner at Claire Oliver

"Smiling Broadly" by Norbert Brunner. Now showing at Claire Oliver in New York through March 24, 2012

Like me, if you’ve been looking forward to seeing a full length exhibit by Austrian artist Norbert Brunner, the wait is over. “Smiling Broadly” by Brunner is now showing at Claire Oliver in New York.  Combining LED lights, 3 layers of Plexiglass and text made out of Swarovski crystals, each work by Norbert Brunner will make you question the interpretation of the traditional definition of a portrait.  From a photograph, we only know about the moment in question, but what transpires before and after it are mysteries.  When you look at Norbert Brunner’s works, you are confronted with a question or statement that will uplift you, while at the same time, a pair of eyes is seemingly waiting for your reaction.

EXTREME CLOSEUP!

I spoke with Norbert Brunner at the opening night reception and it was a great experience talking to him about the positive messages in his art.  Some of the phrases you’ll see on his gorgeous works of art include “Recognize the Potential,” “Don’t Wait, Start Now,” “Visualize the Extraordinary” and “Anticipate Greatness.”  These inspirational phrases and self-fulfilling prophecies make the viewer walk away from the gallery with the title of the exhibit fresh on their faces – smiling broadly!

Anything is Possible by Norbert Brunner

“Smiling Broadly” by Norbert Brunner is showing at Claire Oliver (located at 513 West 26th Street in Manhattan) through March 24, 2012.  Don’t miss it!

Art is back!  It’s a new year and that means great new exhibits you should check out if you are in the New York area.  The first is “Strange Blooms” by Jennifer Poon at Claire Oliver Gallery.  Jennifer Poon mixes watercolors with her meticulously hand crafted fabric sculptures.  Pictures are one thing, but seeing this art in person is another!

“The Rise And Fall of Western Civilization” by Matthew Sleeth

"The Rise And Fall of Western Civilization" by Matthew Sleeth. Now showing at Claire Oliver in New York through December 31, 2011.

Take a ride on the freeway of love (and absurdity) New York!  Make sure you check out “The Rise And Fall of Western Civilization (and Other Obvious Metaphors)” by Matthew Sleeth at the Claire Oliver Gallery in Manhattan.  The British artist has taken over the gallery with a really cool exhibit that examines Eastern vs. Western ideologies.  Across the gallery, you’ll see 33 unique works of art disguised as freeway signs with phrases that will make you question what is more important – the journey or the destination?  Laid out as a vast highway, as you take a trip from the front to the back of the gallery, you will see signs such as “Stay,” “Change” and “Happiness = Expectation/Achievement.”  The pictures cannot do the exhibit justice, so head over to the Claire Oliver Gallery to walk down Matthew Sleeth’s  long and winding road.  You might even arrive at new philosophical destination by the time you’ve reached the end of the road.
