Keyes Art Gallery in Sag Harbor presents the first exhibition of recent paintings by American artist, philanthropist, and film producer Ted Hartley. The work will be on view from September 28 through October 12. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, September 28, from 5 to 7 PM.
Hartley continues in the rich artistic tradition that lays claim to such painters as William Merritt Chase, Fairfield Porter, Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Willem de Kooning, and many more. Using ink, charcoal, pencil, watercolor, acrylic, and gouache, Hartley unleashes marks and touches of glowing color into receptacles of his own making.
Hesse Flatow and Crush Curatorial in Amagansett present “Nocturna,” a collection of poetry, a series of paintings, and an event — an imaginative “play,” debuting at Crush Curatorial on Saturday, September 28, from 5 to 7 PM.
The project is a collaboration between Jai Hamid Bashir, Patrick Bayly, Beau Rhee, Eleanor Kipping, Amr Sultan, Farouk Oni, Douglas Reiger, Jeffrey Merris, Stefanie Eleoff, the “Making With-Out Objects” class at Columbia University taught by Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Karen Flatow and Jesse Greenberg of Hesse Flatow and Crush Curatorial.
