Jim Holl Solo Show

Jim Holl All The Living Things Jim Holl's solo show "All The Living Things" is a direct, painterly response to natural phenomena. These small paintings will be published in an upcoming book and feature meditations on the intersection of science, art, symbol and archetypes.  In Jim Holl’s "All the Living Things", text and paintings correlate in both literal and associative ways. The texts address phenomena, human perception, and the art of painting through fragments and summations culled from readings and Holl’s contemporary perspective. Woven together,  these insights give the paintings poetic nuance that address the meaning of our existence in the world. Mr. Holl notes: “Three thousand years ago, the Bhagavad Gita talked about the ‘vibratory nature of life,’ of everything… So, All the Living Things has to do with this vibration, expressive of teeming energy.” "All The Living Things" opens with a reception for the artist on Saturday, March 4, 5-8pm and runs through March 26, 2017. About Jim Holl: Jim Holl is a prolific fine artist, graphic designer and digital illustrator who has exhibited his paintings widely since 1978. He has mounted solo exhibitions with public institutions such as The New Museum, PS1 Museum, and Artists Space in New York. Additional selected exhibitions include The Seattle Art Museum, 1708 East Main Gallery in Richmond, VA, Philadelphia Art Alliance, Zone Gallery in Springfield, MA, and in New York City at Columbia University 55 Mercer Gallery, St. John’s University, Lehman College, Gotham Fine Arts Gallery, Soho Center for Contemporary Art and Public Image Gallery. Mr. Holl is currently on the faculty of Marymount College and divides his time between New York City and Catskill, NY.

White Out Winter Group Show

WHITE OUT Winter Group Show

Opening Reception Fri. Jan 27th, 5-8pm Cross Contemporary Art 81 Partition St. Saugerties, New York 12477 on view thru Feb.26, 2017  
GALLERY HOURS: Thurs- Mon 12-5pm
"WHITE OUT" is a group show featuring 24 of the many artists affiliated with Cross Contemporary Art during its 2 and a half years in Saugerties, NY. The exhibit focuses on various expressions and experiences of “white” in the Visual Arts: from the depiction of white as a pigment, to the definition of white space by form, to the blending of all bands of light to create white wavelengths and finally the understanding of white as the absence of all marks or pigment. White can also be understood as a narrative or a fact (like snow, water or ice), but ultimately white will always remain the expression of all light. "WHITE OUT" is curated by Jen Dragon and Alan Goolman.
