Nathaniel Donnett | n. masani landfair
The African American aesthetic is testament to both the persistence and regenerative strength of tradition. The evolution of its sonic and visual output is guided by both academically trained artists and other aesthetically astute artists whose creative visions were honed through family and community experiences.

Themes and Variations
Elise Ferguson, Mark Sengbusch, and Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins
This exhibition highlights work by artists influenced by the history and strategies of design. Their practices exhibit a devotion to research and technology, complemented by an economy of form and command of materials. In Themes and Variations, the artists’ experimental approaches have been channeled into a spirited body of abstract paintings and sculptures marked by repetitive forms and suggestive palettes.
Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space
88 Essex Street, No. 21 (inside Essex Market), NYC 10002
September 9 - November 19, 2022
Rebecca Adorno, Javier Bosques with Elba Meléndez, Danny Rivera-Cruz, and Chaveli Sifre: KIOSK
Conjuring Cuchifritos Gallery’s material history and placement inside of a public food market, KIOSK draws on familiar as well as abstract associations of the marketplace, re-veiling it as a place of mystery and wonder. The works in KIOSK tend to blur the lines between mental and material environments employing ordinary objects as poetic devices. Tracing parallels between La Placita in Santurce, Puerto Rico and Essex Market in Manhattan, the artists playfully explore notions of memory, indulgence, and joy.
19 Monroe Street, New York, NY 10002

Nate Lewis: Tuning the Current
Lewis has extended his signature paper-carving techniques to explore connections among the visual languages of dance movement, anatomy, medical diagnostics and weather-pattern data. Tuning the Current includes several new bodies of work: a series of life-size sculpted prints of figures in motion; abstract handmade paper “quilts” related in texture and patterns to the figurative works; and a multi-channel audio-visual installation representing a significant new step in Lewis’s ongoing relationship with mixed media.
34 E Broadway, New York, NY 10002
October 20 - November 27, 2022
Yanik Wagner: Unmapping
In Unmapping, Wagner explores how we navigate our presence in space and time. The artist distills mundane places and events through memory, reflecting on both the absurdity and connectedness of phenomenal experience. His paintings capture the peculiar state of being-in-the-world and collapse a sense of physical location, temporality, and movement.

Sandra Gottlieb, Sarah Peterson, Francesca Schwartz and Jon Tobiasz: OUT OF BOUNDS
An exhibition with work in various media, featuring photo-based work while also including work that, either with materials, or subject-matter, or size, surprises in an unexpected, predominantly abstract or abstracted way. The artists in this exhibition go with their work beyond the mold of the expected with their genre, medium or technique, and beyond the individual categories ascribed to their process/es. Every single one of the tight group of artists exceeds the boundaries and limitations of a particular medium with his or her own individual practice — a uniting factor that brings them together, both conceptually as visually. Concept and Curation by Robert Curcio (curcioprojects) and Priska Juschka (Lichtundfire) with Exhibition Walk Thru and Reception: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20 | 6-8 PM.

24 Henry Street, New York, NY 10002
September 7 - November 6, 2022
Anne Wu, Elizabeth Orr, Martine Flor: Anywhere or Not At All
In its most basic form, the concept of the contemporary is simply that of the coming together – hence the unity in disjunction, or better, the living disjunctive unity – of multiple times. More specifically, it refers to the coming together of the times of human lives within the time of the living. Contemporaries are those who inhabit (or inhabited) the same time.

55 Hester Street, New York, NY 10002
September 8 - October 15, 2022
Ghislaine Leung: Balances
This negotiation of mixed identity and the navigation of contingency is pivotal to my work. A work is contingent on its context, this vulnerability is my work's resilience. It is a negotiation of what it means to have dependencies and be dependent. It is a negotiation of what it means to value the labour of maintenance. It is a negotiation of what it means to hold out and resist binarized identities. You know all of this. Setting up boundaries in order to negotiate is vital to the works’ integrity, its identity and my practice as an artist.
McKenzie Fine Art
55 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002
September 9 - October 23, 2022
Paul Corio: These Foolish Things
Paul Corio’s abstract paintings have long used highly disciplined sequences of carefully mixed colors within a varied framework of geometric motifs and patterns. In Corio’s work, color is paramount, whether ordered systematically in terms of value, hue, and saturation, or applied randomly and intuitively.

Kathleen Goncharov: Above and Below
Olympia is pleased to present Above and Below, a first-time exhibition of works on panel by Kathleen Goncharov. For decades, Goncharov alternated between putting on major institutional exhibitions and working in relative solitude in her studio. Currently serving as senior curator at the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Goncharov has practiced as a curator for forty years. Yet through that time, she introspectively cultivated her own visual language.

Rachel Libeskind: Transparent Things
signs and symbols is pleased to present Transparent Things, Rachel Libeskind’s second solo exhibition with the gallery featuring a series of photo-assemblages from the artist’s most recent body of work: Windows. Each painting begins with a collage, assembled on the scanner bed, enlarged, inverted, entire fields of color and information expunged. Excerpts are printed on a selection of materials: latex, silicone, fiberglass netting, different type of PVC and ripstock — and then cut up, painted over, pasted, enlightened, liberated, destroyed and reborn as finished works stretched over “traditional” painting stretcher bars.

Ryder Henry: Housing Works
Ryder Henry's paintings and sculptures explore an urban future through a lens of the past—views of a future that seemingly has already happened. Vintage cars and bikes line crushed-stone streets, a rocket shell has been converted into apartments, and turbines generate power. Nostalgia is ever present and there is a calm that belies the intensity of the environments.
Thomas Nickles Project

September 15 – November 6, 2022
Roger Toledo: Par | Ergon

Van Der Plas Gallery

September 30 - October 23, 2022
LeCrue Eyebrows: Primitive Form
LeCrue Eyebrows uses his art as a form of communication — his own visual journal for the world to see. Although there is something seemingly methodical about his work, his creative process starts spontaneously and uses free-form instinctual techniques. This lack of premeditation gives his work a deeply personal originality in exploring thoughtful visceral concepts. He channels stimuli, both consciously and subconsciously absorbed, into strikingly simple yet remarkably nuanced stories on canvas.
Jason Mclean, Al Diaz, Clayton Patterson, Clown Soldier, Devon Marinac, Alejandro Caiazza, Susan Day, Kevin Wendall (FA-Q), Ron Burman, Fiona Smyth, Ross Bellamy: Royal Flush
Royal Flush: noun (in poker) a straight flush including ace, king, queen, jack, and ten all in the same suit. Royal flushes top all other hands, and are mathematically the rarest made hands that you can draw. Group exhibition Royal Flush will be displayed in the showroom.
Voltz Clarke Gallery

September 23 - November 11, 2022
Field Kallop: Circles
In her new paintings, Kallop, whose practice explores universal and fundamental forms and patterns, trains her focus on circles. Discs and spheres are omnipresent in the natural world and we have focused our attention on them since the beginning of recorded history. We have an innate predilection for circular forms and we have always imbued them with meaning. Circles are integral to the studies of math and science and in various cultures they are associated with the divine. These elementary forms represent unity and harmony, but they are also dynamic and unstable. They are simple and complete, yet they signify eternity and infinity. It is these inherent dualities that most interest Kallop, and in these paintings she sets out to examine, synthesize and balance the opposing principles embodied by these familiar forms.
