Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you! Nice spring 2014!
SLATE HILL, NY April 10, 2014–Passions that inspire some of the 100 exhibitors at the Contemporary Art Fair NYC May 8-11 at The Tunnel in Chelsea range from music, entertainment and politics to world travel, history, landscapes and a mission to achieve life balance. Their work will be part of a citywide art celebration taking place concurrently with Frieze New York. This satellite art fair, in its fifth year, joins at least 10 others.
About his paintings George Pali identifies the prominence of music and instruments as art objects. The Stamford, Conn.-based artist spent eight years in music school learning violin and guitar. “I chose not to become a musician because my interest in colors and shapes was far more intense than interest in sounds.” Brooklyn artist Beau Marrelli has painted political themes for nine years, adding entertainment more recently. He researches 200-300 newspapers and magazines for as long as six months before beginning one of his mixed media works on wood.
Jacquelyn Etling describes her photographs as “shot through the eyes of a world traveler and art historian.” Now a Connecticut resident, landscape photography has intrigued her since she owned her first camera at age seven. The adjunct professor of art history at Sacred Heart University wrote that she has always loved photography’s ability to “freeze time and preserve the past.” Landscape has also impacted Jenn Crisan Cole’s pictures. She wrote from her studio in Girard, Ohio: “My work concentrates on the abstract qualities of landscape.” Crisan Cole incorporates images from many places in one painting to achieve the right mood.
Steven Schreiber’s collages “employ the aesthetics of mid 20th century Americana to splice open American culture, reflecting the country’s constant redefinition of its own self-image,” he said. In his sculptures Daniel Horne “continues a long exploration of the importance and possibility of finding balance in all things.” When contemplating his works of dense steel, rock and wood he invites viewers to ponder balance in their own lives. Schreiber’s studio is in Manhattan and Horne’s in Girard, Ohio.
