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
“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.
