Michael Koerner: Hibakusha: A tribute to the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings
The show opens July 10, 2020 at Catherine Edelman Gallery. To avoid crowds, the opening reception will be from noon – 8:00 pm on Friday, July 10.
On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, and another one three days later on Nagasaki, killing tens of thousands instantly, and more than 200,000 people in total. Michael Koerner was born in Okinawa, Japan in 1963, the son of a Japanese mother and American military father. For the past few years, Koerner has been making one-of-a-kind tintypes about his family and the effects of gamma radiation that have taken the lives of all members of his immediate family.Learn More
Dan Barry and Jason Houchen: Fresh Cuts (Virtual Exhibition)
This show is an online only exhibition, opening July 10 at Bert Green Fine Art
Alix Sloan of Sloan Fine Art has curated this two person exhibition of collages by Dan Barry and Jason Houchen. Barry and Houchen share an obsession with materials and a passion for re-invention. In their works, they deftly combine and collage collected, often vintage, sources with deliberate new marks in a variety of mediums to create fresh new compositions. The resulting works remind us that while we cannot rewrite our history, we can choose how we frame our future.Learn More
