Forthcoming Exhibitions

APRIL 29- MAY 17, 2014

Chelsea, NYC: Viridian Artists is pleased to present new work by Alan Gaynor. His exhibition of photographs entitled "Remembrances" continues from April 29 through May 17, 2014 with an opening reception, Thursday May 1, 6-8PM.

The images in this exhibit are a departure from Gaynor's usual subject matter of urban architecture and instead are a tribute to his late wife Sharon Silbiger, a Professor of Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein School of Medicine. In these works, Gaynor uses the beauty of dying flowers, as a metaphor for her death after a long illness.

Though he hopes to return to focusing on architectural patterns in his photographic work, changing his imagery during his grieving has provided solace. The images in this exhibit are another poignant example of the power and importance of art in our lives. In these powerful floral portraits, Gaynor has gone beyond the usual imagery of flowers in art, instead creating a potent metaphor of the beauty and naturalness of the evolution of life and death.

Previous Exhibitions

Renée Borkow
In The City
March 18 - April 5, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 27, 6-8 pm

Chelsea, NY: Viridian Artists is pleased to present the recent work of Renée Borkow. This latest group of drawings and prints titled In The City was motivated by looking at cityscapes or environmental inspirations in many less-known locations throughout the city.

Borkow focuses on the juxtaposition and combination of geometric or architectural buildings, combined with the organic and natural lines and shapes of trees or nature. Color is a major emphasis, and each composition engages the eye of the viewer in a visual push-pull effect, creating a strong sense of movement throughout. The differences between the calm and quiet spaces and the energy-packed noisy ones are apparent, and make seeing the work both meditative and exciting.

Renée Borkow lives and works in New York City. She is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, and has a Master of Fine Arts degree from Columbia University. She has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Florida, Lyon and Pittsburgh.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 12- 6 PM

Valerii Klymchuk is an artist who is also a System Analyst mathematician from Artemovsk in the Ukraine. Artemovsk is in Donetska Oblast, about an hour north of Donetsk, the heart of eastern Ukraine, a part of the country made up of industrial towns, factories and smokestacks. Like many before him, he came to America seeking to discover his dream and even his purpose for being on this planet. Differences is a pure illusion. Every time we see Cultural Differences, that’s the time to wake up and to see...”
Valerii confessed, "In my search for my cultural identity I saw the absurdity of trying to describe a Spiritual Human in short sentences. That’s how I discovered new exciting way of expressing myself through art. It give... [ Read all ]
