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!

The best way to avoid the heat in New York is seeing cool art exhibits!  At Claire Oliver in Manhattan, the show “The Devil Can Cite Scripture” features the work of Spanish artist Bernardi Roig and American artist Judith Schaechter.  Roig’s work features sculptures surrounded by light.   Schaechter utilizes stained glass in her art.  The works on display are so much more intricate than these pictures can show, so you should check out this exhibit in person.

Judith Schaechter – Beauty and the Beef

Beauty and the Beef by Judith Schaechter @ the Claire Oliver Gallery in NYC. Now showing through June 26, 2010.

On May 22, 2010, I attended the opening of American artist Judith Schaechter’s latest exhibit – Beauty and the Beef – at the Claire Oliver Gallery  in New York and it was quite a scene!  This exhibit is her fourth solo exhibition at the gallery and it’s really cool.  She makes stained glass lightboxes that fuse medieval images with current day themes.  I was drawn in immediately by the vivid colors she uses in her work that are melded seamlessly with notions of sex and death.  I encourage you to see this for yourself and draw your own conclusions.  Beauty and the Beef runs from now through June 26, 2010 at the Claire Oliver Gallery in New York and is located at 513 West 26th Street.

See another image of Schaechter’s work as well as images from the opening night reception after the jump. Perhaps you can spot the artist in one of the pictures.
