Katherine Boxall at Jerald Melberg Gallery
   
 
 
 
It is a rare occurrence to add an artist to my gallery roster. It is a decision I take seriously as my philosophy has caused me to represent a relatively small group of artists I wholeheartedly believe in. It is my distinct pleasure to introduce the work of Katherine Boxall in this inaugural exhibition.
 
I first viewed Katherine's paintings at her solo exhibition at the Mint Museum in early 2020. I had not known her long and, without previous knowledge of her work, I was overwhelmed. My first thought was that the paintings evoked Intelligent Abstraction. After this initial viewing, I had a visceral and emotional interaction with the paintings and, unlike myself, immediately asked Katherine if she would join the gallery. When we scheduled this exhibition the choice of a title was obvious.
 
A native of Ottawa, Katherine holds a BFA from Queen's University and a MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and is the recipient of several academic honors and awards. Her abstract expressionist paintings are bold, beautiful and intelligent. They exude conviction, energy and knowledgeable composition while making, I believe, a significant contribution to the understanding of contemporary works of art.

Agnes Martin and Her Circle at Addison Rowe Gallery
 
 
 
Agnes Martin was a Canadian-born American abstract painter whose work has been defined as an "essay in discretion on inward-ness and silence". Although she is often considered or referred to as a minimalist, Martin considered herself an abstract expressionist.
 
Martin often described a painting from 1964, The Tree, as her first grid. In fact, she had been making them since at least the beginning of the decade, first by scratching lattices into paint and then by pencilling ruled vertical and horizontal lines on to canvases, sometimes embellishing the hatchings with dabs or lines of colour, even sheets of gold leaf. “Well,” she told an interviewer, “when I first made a grid I happened to be thinking of the innocence of trees and then this grid came into my mind and I thought it represented innocence, and I still do, and so I painted it and then I was satisfied.

Barbizon and the Journey to Impressionism at Galerie Michael
 
 
 
Galerie Michael is one of the leading galleries in the world - not least because it has the courage to consistently offer its clients museum-caliber Barbizon exhibitions each year. World-renowned 19th century art expert, Petre ten-Doesschate Chu, recently commented that, "[Galerie Michael] has done much to promote the art of the Barbizon school in California. Important French naturalist paintings have also graced its walls. Michael [Schwartz] has supported Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide [NCAW] from the beginning. We shall miss him for his generosity, as well as his warmth and sense of humor."
 
Michael was keenly aware that the mid-19th century is unquestionably a key part of art history. It would not have been possible to jump from the Romantic Movement of the early 19th century to the Impressionist Movement a few decades later without the intervening bridge provided by the artists who gained their inspiration in the Forest of Fontainebleau alongside the small village of Barbizon.

Essential Jim Dine at Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art
 
 
 
 
Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art, which has represented Jim Dine for nearly twenty years, has brought together a retrospective of the artist’s work spanning fifty years of his remarkable career. Beginning with the large collage-painting on paper, Untitled (Gossip) (1970-71), and ending with the monumental, hand-painted, five-panel woodcut, Asleep with his Tools, Jim Dreams (2018), this Jim Dine exhibition features notable examples of the artist’s well-known motifs:  hearts, robes, tools, and the 2nd-century-BCE masterpiece, Venus de Milo, which is in the collection of the Louvre. It also underscores Dine’s capacity to make works that do not fit neatly into art historical categories, such as collage and painting.
 
An instrumental and innovative artist, Dine has had at least five careers since he and Claes Oldenburg started Judson Gallery in 1959. This endeavor helped move the art world away from Abstract Expressionism and initiated a new era.

Mira Lehr at Rosenbaum Contemporary
 
 
 
The title of the exhibition [Planetary Visions: Mira Lehr from Spaceship Earth] refers to the need for all of us to remain focused on our shared vision of the planet. Because of the global pandemic, for the first time in human history, the entire population of the world is thinking about the same problems ─ and grasping for the same solutions. This is a major turning point in our history. We can use this time to transcend across borders and places, with a unified vision for the planet.
 
Planetary Visions also refers to the mythical places featured on some of the newer paintings, my visions of environmental flashpoints happening around the globe. While these are all imaginary places, I point out that all of these climate issues that are happening around the planet are very real: rising seas, air pollution, global warming, and more. Each imaginary place represents different climate challenges that are alarming, and I am concerned that time is running out for our planet Earth.
