“BODY OF WORK IX” is Presented at Ashawagh Hall Opening 5-8 on Saturday, June 29,

“BODY OF WORK IX” is Presented at Ashawagh Hall on June 29 & 30

“Body of Work IX” showcases the artistic activity of long time members of this fluid group of figurative artists. During the time we have shown together, we have bonded as a group creatively, as individuals working, showing and growing.

“Body of Work IX” presents artwork by Rosalind Brenner, Linda Capello, Michael Cardacino, Ellen Dooley, Anthony Lombardo, Phil Marco, Michael McDowell, Douglas Reina, Frank Sofo and Margaret Weissbach.

The exhibition opens at
 and continues through Sunday, June 30. An Artist Reception will be held on June 29 from 5 to 8 p.m. Ashawagh Hall is located at 780 Springs Fireplace Rd, Springs, NY 11937.

Not every artist exhibits in every show. For “Body of Work IX,” the group is introducing a new artist who has not exhibited previously with the Body of Work artist collective.

While all the work in the exhibition is figurative, each artist presents a unique interpretation.

Doug Reina’s recent work involves painting the figure while exploring ideas about how to manipulate the treatment of the paint on the canvas surface.

“This treatment allows me to see more than an abstract painting and more than a figurative painting,” states Reina in his Artist Statement. “Instead, I see both, which I find interesting.”

Opening Reception on Wednesday, June 26 | 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
42 Rivington Street
New York | New York | 10012
Kindly respond to this invitation at the Facebook event page.

NEW YORK - Tally Beck Contemporary will present the first solo exhibition in New York for Cambodian artist Chath pierSath. I'm Here: Chath pierSath's Solo Exhibition will open on June 26 and run through August 30, 2013. The show will feature 17 paintings and multi-media collages most of which from the last two years.

Chath pierSath is a Cambodian artist, poet and humanitarian. He lost much of his family during the Khmer Rouge regime and was forced into a labor camp as a child before fleeing to Thailand in 1979. In 1981, he immigrated to the United States. He later earned in his BA at World College West in international service and development.

pierSath works mainly with painting and collage and frequently experiments with media - often repurposing and recycling materials such as wooden slats and roof shingles. His paintings are deeply expressionistic and seem to attempt to reconcile haunting memories of his childhood with his life in the United States and humanitarian work in Cambodia.

I'm Here will open at Tally Beck Contemporary, 42 Rivington Street, on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, with an opening reception from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. sponsored by Tiger Beer-Singapore. Additionally, there will be a series of educational programs at the gallery during the run of the exhibition. On July 24, Tally Beck Contemporary will present The Art and Architecture of Angkor, a brief discussion of the visual language of Cambodia's medieval empire. On July 31, there will be a similar presentation on the history of Cambodian contemporary art. The artist will join us on August 7 for an artist's talk and Q&A.

Tally Beck Contemporary is a New York-based gallery that focuses on Asian contemporary art. Founded in 2010, the gallery emphasizes fresh expression from Asia with regular exhibitions. Tally Beck Contemporary also maintains a strong presence at international art fairs, including artMRKT San Francisco, artMRKT Hamptons, LA Art Show, Art Asia Miami, Texas Contemporary and SCOPE Basel.

Herman's' House, 40 Years in Solitary What Would You dream of? Premiere July 8th

Herman's House - Herman Wallace's Health Update <!--[if gte mso 6]> <![endif]

Herman's House
Dear Friends,
We are sad to share with you the news that Herman Wallace was very recently diagnosed with liver cancer.  Our director Angad was fortunate to be able to visit with Herman this past weekend and wrote the following:

"After I heard of Herman's health condition, I can't begin to explain the feelings that began to run through my heart: despair, anger, confusion, to name a few.  Mostly I realized that I just needed to see him.  My visit took place in the infirmary where Herman is still being isolated from other prisoners, but at least he is no longer being held in his tiny cell.  He had lost about fifty pounds since I last saw him in March, and for the first time the man who had always embodied strength and vitality to me looked more like his actual age of 71.  We were both cautious in talking about his liver condition, as additional tests will be happening to determine his prognosis and possible treatment options.  Most importantly he did not want this development to distract people from the injustice that has been done to him and the thousands of others in solitary confinement.  One of the correctional officers said he would try to allow Herman to watch the film on POV on July 8th. So when you tune in, know that he may be watching it with you."

We will continue to share developments with you and ask that keep Herman in your thoughts at this time.  If you would like more information, you can read the recent post on the Solitary Watch website.
