  2. Gallery Hopping Through Switzerland

    We’re taking a road trip through Switzerland to catch this week’s hottest art shows. 

    The first stop on our itinerary is the idyllic city of Lucerne, where Galerie Urs Meile will host its second solo exhibition for the experimental artist, Li Gang (Chinese, b. 1986). The exhibit, Salt Road, will present a collection of new works by the artist, made from materials diverse as waste from exhaust emissions all the way to ordinary wood. There is no common thread binding all of the works together, instead they are bound by the overarching themes of experimentation and transformation.

  13.  “I like how people are different when alone or in their own thoughts, and in a way, more their true self.” - Vincent Giarrano

    Contemporary Realist painter Vincent Giarrano’s New York City Series explores the dynamic between people and the unique New York City environment. Vincent paints women candidly in quiet, interior moments when it feels like no one is looking. It’s these personal moments in the daily lives of women as they make their way through vibrant New York City that fascinates the artist. 

    Vincent Giarrano: New York City opens at Susan Powell Fine Art on Friday, August 15, with an opening reception starting at 5pm.

  15. Gallery Hopping in Colombia

    On this week’s agenda is a trip south of the border to Colombia, where From Form to Figure will open at Beatriz Esguerra Art. This exhibit will feature a series of new works by Carolina Convers (Colombian). What is significant about this show is that it captures the artist in a moment of transition. Convers, who traditionally creates figurative works made out of industrial enamels on acetate prints is moving away from this practice and into abstraction and the use of oil on canvas. Both materials and subject matter have changed for the artist and the works on display effectively illustrate this artistic evolution. Even though there is an ostensible difference between the two types of work on display, it is clear that there is still a lot of overlapping in style and form. Viewers will notice that many of the forms in the abstract works very much resemble the shapes found in Convers’ figurative works. In this way, Convers has not completely divorced herself from figuration altogether, instead she has incorporated elements of this style into her approach to abstraction. This show is a wonderful opportunity to see how Convers’ artistic practice has changed and grown as she has experimented with different subject matter and material. Don’t miss out!

    We would be remiss not to mention these other great shows opening this week!
