Vernita N'Cognita AKA Vernita Nemec, Sarah Riley & others, Katherine Ellinger Smith
Ceres Gallery
547 West 27th Street , Suite 201 , New York, NY 10001
December 23, 2008 - December 30, 2008


This show was far too brief and though curated by chance it is filled with a wide variety of hot art - all ready and waiting for museum recognition. Three of the outstanding artists are pictured here.

Vernita Nemec AKA N’Cognita's cast paper installation of collaged assemblages and 3-D paperworks made of junkmail security envelopes translates places amd moments into a visual autobiography reflecting our 21st century lives by transforming materials that would otherwise enter landfills.

Katherine Ellinger Smith creates her autobiography with oil stick on mylar, translating metaphorically the character, relationships and conditions of friends and acquaintances into mostly angry botanical and animal images.

Even more disturbing are the porcelain characters of Anna Adler whose sculpture seems to exude the breakaway parts of our emotions revealed.

Last chance today!
