“Today I am … a Small Blue Thing … like a marble … or an eye.” – Suzanne Vega.
An exhibition within an exhibition, Small Blue Thing, in a nod to #newcollectorbk, Ground Floor Gallery’s blog for new art buyers, offers a selection of smaller sized gems from the artists of LAZULI. These choice and accessible finds offer the perfect occasion to begin or expand upon your own fine art collection.
Closing Reception : Sunday Feb 28th 3-5pm
With a long and storied time-line through the history of art, Lapis Lazuli and the Ultramarine pigment it birthed remains apprized by artists across millennia. As expensive as gold in the Middle Ages, Lapis Lazuli was ground into powder creating the pigment used by artists exclusively for the depictions of the Christ and Virgin Mary figures of Renaissance paintings.  The devotion and fascination to this sublime hue was given contemporary form by Yves Klein, the artist who invented IKB (International Klein Blue), a synthetic and intense version of this beloved azure. Today the usages and connotations of these intense blues are as myriad and varied as the artists themselves.

Rick Briggs: Full Circle

February 18 – March 15, 2016

Opening reception from 1:00-3:00 PM.   A gallery talk with the artist will begin shortly after introductory remarks.
Flecker Gallery is pleased to announce an upcoming solo exhibition of recent paintings by Rick Briggs.  The show is comprised of a dozen selected paintings made between 2010 and 2015 and they pack a punch.  These are paintings that push against convention and that have established a language and a territory all their own.  Briggs was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and studied there at The Tyler School of Art (BFA).  He moved to NYC in 1980 and a year later to Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Later he attended SUNY Purchase (MFA).  In 2004, he was included in the Brooklyn Museum’s “Open House: Working In Brooklyn” exhibition.  The following year he had his first solo exhibition, “Painter Man”, at the Sarah Bowen Gallery.  In 2008, Robert Storr invited him to be in “Making Do Trois” at the Yale School of Art. He had his 2nd solo show at Valentine in 2012 and has been included in many group shows at venues such as the Paula Cooper Gallery, The Drawing Center, and Arts & Leisure.  In addition to his work as an artist, Briggs has curated the shows “Let’s Get Physical” and “My Big Fat Painting” and written exhibition reviews for the art website Hyperallergic.  Briggs has attended artist residencies at Bennington College, The Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony of the Arts, and at the BAU/Camargo Center in Cassis, France in 2014.  He received the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2011 and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship in 2012.  Briggs lives and works in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full-color catalog with contributions by Matthew Neil Gehring, Robert Storr, and Wallace Whitney.  Please visit our website or contact the gallery directly for directions, to schedule an appointment, or to request a catalog.

Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, February 18, from 1:00 - 3:00PM.  A gallery talk by the artist will begin just after opening remarks at 1:00PM.

Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from
10:00AM - 4:00PM and by appointment.
