Opening Reception: Saturday, January 4, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
New York, NY (December 6, 2013) – Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Eight Painters, a group exhibition organized by painter Paul Behnke, presenting new and recent abstract work by Karen Baumeister, Paul Behnke, Karl Bielik, James Erikson, Matthew Neil Gehring, Dale McNeil, Brooke Moyse, and Julie Torres.
The show will run from January 4, 2014 to February 1, 2014.
The exhibit draws inspiration from group exhibitions of the 1940’s and 1950’s, before clever curatorial themes consistently dictated the work to be included in group shows. Eight Painters’ only criteria for inclusion are an individual vision, a certain ambition that transcends any specific scale or way of working, and an abiding belief in the ability of paint and the genre of abstraction to best communicate that ambition and vision.
“Painting is feeling. There are situations, states of mind, mood which call for some form of artistic expression, because one knows that only some form of art is capable of going beyond them to give us intuitive contact with a superior set of truths.”
– Roger Hilton
The opening reception for Eight Painters will take place on Saturday, January 4 from 6 – 8 PM.
