The Yard: Lower East Side

IFAC Arts and The Yard: Lower East Side presents Frank Shifreen’s recent paintings at 85 Delancey Street, at the corner of Orchard Street in NYC From April 10th, 2022 through Summer 2022.

Shifreen is a mature artist at the height of his creative powers who although not well known to the general public has been an activist painter, sculptor, set designer, curator, and organizer of art events for the last 40 years. 

 

His paintings are an accessible amalgam of abstraction and figuration drenched in color and light.  Shifreen is strongly intuitive and believes that paintings are a  conversation between the artist and his work. During his process forms-  people, objects, and landscapes will appear and disappear later to be resolved in complex synchrony. After health crises in recent years, Shifreen found new reserves of inner strength to create spectacular new paintings that are infused with radiance and structure. Shifreen recuperated on the beach in El Salvador and the blinding light of the tropical sun healed his body and mind. He found that he could store the light within him like a battery, and then create paintings that glow with the vibrant life force that generated them.  

 

Painting can be described as how light travels through the picture plane. All objects we now know are equivalent to the energy of the speed of light squared. Can this equation be translated into aesthetic realization?

 

Frank Shifreen: Ecstatic Color will be on display at The Yard: Lower East Side Floors 2-3 (85 Delancey Street, New York, NY) from April 10, 2022 – July 10, 2022. Please feel free to stop by and visit the show Monday – Friday 10:00 – 4:30 pm. There will be an Artist Reception on Thursday, May 26, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

The Yard: Flatiron South

Art strives on providing a new perspective. Adding much-needed texture, art often encourages the practice of fostering an updated way of viewing the world.

Seeking to do just that, Through Fresh Eyes is a group exhibition featuring three astute photographers who are dedicated to processing and interpreting the nuances of the world around them.

 

Showcasing works from Lyte Visuals, Diane Knarr, and Destiny Mata, each woman brings a unique aesthetic that contributes to the collective outlook on our surrounding environment. As human beings, we have an innate need to assess that in which we come into contact with. It is what we live for… Through Fresh Eyes is a renewal of what it means to be alive.

 

Curated by Akeem K. Duncan. | @akeemkduncan

 

Through Fresh Eyes is currently on display at The Yard: Flatiron South  (234 5th Avenue, floors 2-5), please stop by to see the show during business hours, Monday – Friday, 10 am – 4:30 pm. For inquiries and private appointments please reach out to Akeem at RSVP@quietlunch.com.

The Yard: Herald Square

ABSTRKT is pleased to present “FROM THIS TO THAT” a solo exhibition by artist Mason Eve. This new body of work explores the pleasure that can be found when we let ourselves enjoy the process of creative play. Her work uses shape, color, and texture to examine the energy that our memories hold,
while simultaneously capturing the particular moment in time when the collage is made. While working she asks questions that connect feelings to a visual landscape – What is the color of joy? What shape does a first kiss take when translated into abstract form? Is the sound of jazz a cobalt squiggle or a tangerine square? When you look at the artwork what memories arise? How can we hold on to fleeting memories?

 

Through her work, Mason aims to highlight the relationship between our dream world and the artistic influences present in our daily lives – each piece telling a story of the balance that can be found amidst chaos and movement. “FROM THIS TO THAT” is a transitional body of work as Mason moves away from acrylic on canvas into the world of collage, the title is a remix of Lucille Clifton’s closing line in “Blessing The Boats”
“may you
open your eyes to water
water waving forever
and may you in your innocence
sail through this to that”

 

Her collage work is a physical representation of her embracing fear, feeling it, and then giving herself permission to play, trusting the intuitive process of creation to set both the artist and viewer free. “FROM THIS TO THAT” is currently on display at The Yard: Herald Square, Floor 2 (106 W. 32nd Street, New York, NY). Please stop by during business hours, Monday – Friday (10-4:30 pm), or reach out to ABSTRKT at che@abstrkt.world to attend the reception on Friday, June 3rd, 2022, or for a private tour.

The Yard: Lincoln Square

Artist Dan Brenton conjures up quiet moments in serene landscapes, where solitude is freedom, and the company of a companion brings fullness to the heart. In Places I Remember, Dan and curator Deborah Pannell have brought together a collection of paintings and drawings from two of his most recent, ongoing series. The first one chronicles the travels of a man and a dog through countryside vistas. The second, which he began after the long summer of 2020, was a reflection on solitude that portrays lone houses in remote settings. In imagining one’s self into these scenarios, one can almost hear the rustle of wind through tree branches, the soft ripping of water, the crunching of leaves underfoot, or the murmur of cicadas.

 

Drawing on his earlier training as a photographer, Brenton’s depiction of light is central to his compositions. Whether bringing to life bright sunshine, the gentle glow of moonlight, or the delicate illumination of lamplight as seen through distant windows, his paintings suggest a warmth of possibility, reminding us of the many ways to find, in his words, “…what it means to be present in the midst of a journey, even when it feels like it’s coming apart.”

 

The exhibition is on view from March 21, 2022 – July 3, 2022, at The Yard: Lincoln Square, Floors 4-5 (157 Columbus Ave, New York, NY) on weekdays from 10 am – 4:30 pm and by appointment. For all sales inquiries, please contact the curator at deborahosterpannell@gmail.com or 917-971-7606.

 

Please join us for a reception on Friday, 5/20/22 from 6-8 pm to celebrate the Places I Remember exhibition at The Yard: Lincoln Square!

Philadelphia

The Yard: Center City 

InLiquid Art + Design at The Yard: Center City presents Idyll. The artists in Idyll draw inspiration from the natural world— the rhythms, patterns, and pace of nature. In this show, works from artists Judy Caldwell, Sam Coursen, Valerie Coursen, and Adina Segal invite you to learn from nature and practice the art of slowing down.

 

Drawn to objects with a weathered patina, Valerie Coursen imitates the effects of the elements over time as she explores building layers with paint, patterns, color, and collage in her pieces. Sam Coursen’s minimalist work takes familiar natural imagery and abstracts them through a combination of paint and collage.

 

Judy Caldwell and Adina Segal engage with the environment in a meditative way. Caldwell’s work reflects a constant state of education; learning to be more present and fully mindful of nature’s timing and energies. Segal, enthralled by the not knowing, the seeking, the transformation, and the discovery, creates imagined moonscapes, skyscapes, and waterscapes.

 

Patient, immersive attention to an image may spark observations or inspirations previously unnoticed. So take a longer look, draw inspiration from the natural world, and enjoy a moment of mindful reflection with the works of Idyll.

 

This exhibition will be on view through September 28, 2022, at The Yard: Center City, Floors 2-5 (21 S. 11th Street, Philadelphia, PA). We will be hosting a reception in celebration of this gorgeous collection of works on Tuesday, June 28th from 6-8 pm, please reach out to megan@inliquid.com to join in on the celebration or with any inquiries. Guests are also welcome during business hours, Monday-Friday, 10 am – 4:30 pm, and by appointment.
