Gallery Openings On The LES

Must Read

This week, we  jump start our roundup of gallery openings with a group show —  “Just Off” at Sloan Fine Art (128 Rivington) tomorrow from 6-8PM. It features works by artists who all seem to create images that are, well, “just off.” For example, both in artist Melanie Vote‘s oil painting “Refuge in Ruins” (at left) and Mitra Walter‘s circular painting “Party to The Seventh Part” there appears to be something askew.  In Sloan Fine Art’s Project Room there will also be an opening for Ryan Scully‘s “Always Moving.” This show will feature work that Scully created based on the impact of growing up near a nuclear power plant.

Another show opening on Wednesday from 6-9PM is “Inherent Bodies” at 255 Canal Gallery (255 Canal Street), featuring the work of artist C. Alexander Häusler, who grew up in Bavaria, and studied sculpture and architecture in Munich and at Harvard. The work deals thematically with the notion of space.

“Intersections,” a 3-person show, curated by Cora Cohen, opens on Thursday from  6-8PM, at The Educational Alliance (179 East Broadway). The three artists featured are Corey D’Augustine, Marsha Melnick, & Gar Wang. This is an annual show that showcases artists from The Educational Alliance Studios, and new artists as well.

Also on Thursday, at The Living With Art Gallery (153 Lafayette), an opening for Tang Nannan’s show “What I Can See From Here” from 6-9PM. The watercolor portraits in the show depict people that the artist once photographed in Xiamen. Some of his previous photographs can be seen here.

The final opening on Thursday is at Rachel Uffner Gallery (47 Orchard) from 6-8PM. The show, by artist Anya Kielar, is called “FACE.” The New York Times reviewed one of Kielar’s shows in 2007, deeming it impressive.  In this show, New York City born Kielar will present sand drawings and screen sculptures.

Dispatch  Gallery (127 Henry Street) is having an opening on Sunday called “True Grit,” by sculptor  Virginia Overton, from 5-7PM. This is Overton’s first solo-show in New York City, and primarily deals with the notion of balance, as her sculptures are made from repurposed construction material with the mindset of being economical.
