Up Coming Exhibition: BOOKWORM by Molly Egan

Bookworm-Egan

BOOKWORM

Molly Egan Solo Exhibition

May 6, 2017 ~ May 31, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 6  6-8PM

We are proud to announce our new exhibition “BOOKWORM”, book art by Molly Egan opening on Saturday, May 6th.

Molly Egan is a Philadelphia based painter and illustrator who is known for her pop and colorful drawings and paintings on book pages. Flatness in art is now extremely trendy and somewhat still futuristic expression form in the contemporary art scene, but with the similar flatness, Egan’s work has rather 70s and 80s feeling to it.

Egan’s use of bright colors and large, fun shapes might be what first catches your eye about her work, but it’s her attention to detail and uniqueness of character that really makes them pop. She works in, and even sometimes mixes between, many different mediums, from paint and print, to collage and even pottery and sculpture. Many of the works in Egan’s portfolio are pages from her sketchbook; painted entirely from one corner to the other. However, the sketchbooks Egan uses are not always the accustomed plain paper sketchbooks, but actual regular book-books–with the words still printed on them–as well, which adds an extra texture and collage effect to these pieces. How rare! Egan’s works are an absolute delight. A fruity, tchotchke laden world that we would love to be a part of.

While it is difficult to display an entire collection of her work as they are on book pages, it is our challenge on printing pages out as various sized fine giclee prints, and display so our visitors can see the multiple pieces at one sight. The prints are displayed along with the original book which you can flip through.

Please join at the opening reception and meet her bookworms this coming Saturday, May 6th.

ONE HUNDRED DAYS OF WINTER

New Exhibition by Rachelle Tolwin

March 31 – April 29, 2012
Opening Reception: March 31, 6 – 9PM

For Immediate Release

AG Gallery/About Glamour in Williamsburg is pleased to present a solo exhibition, “One Hundred Days of Winter,” by Rachelle Tolwin. All the works are from her project in this winter which is the document of  her daily creation process on a mountain days.

Rachelle Tolwin’s tumblr blog description reads: “this will be my first winter living on a mountain in the Catskill mountain state park. I plan to document each day of the winter with art that I made that day. Some days may be really cold. Some days there may be no internet access. I will still make something regardless of the conditions and post it when I am connected to the world-wide web and all of you.”

Rachelle moved to a remote area of the Catskill Mountains with her husband, Chaim, last Summer from Brooklyn. She looked to the Winter as a time to reflect and focus on art and decided to start http://www.onehundreddaysofwinter.tumblr.com. Her daily artwork chronicles this time through playful, introspective work clearly inspired by her new surroundings and connection with nature. Most of the work in one hundred days of winter is on paper, with gouache, watercolor and collage. There are a few photographs that help situate her setting. The title of the show may suggest images of snow and a white landscape, but these types of images do not dominate the show. One reason may be there was not as much snow as expected this year. Most of the works are colorful and reflect the inward and outward journey Rachelle experienced.  The work in this show presents a mystical, whimsical landscape that Rachelle lives in or imagines.

Rachelle Tolwin

Rachelle Tolwin lives and works in Sundown, NY, a small hamlet in the Catskill Mountains. She received her MFA from California College of the Arts and her BS from New York University. She enjoys making imagined landscapes on paper and has shown her work nationally and internationally. Her work can be viewed at rachellecohen.com.

The opening reception for “One Hundred Days of Winter” will be held on Saturday, March 31 at AG Gallery from 6 to 9 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, April 29, 2012.
