Altman Siegel is pleased to present an exhibition by Garth Weiser (b. 1979, Helena, MT).
Garth Weiser's work exploits a tension created by the meeting of a hard-edged formalism and the remnants of a chaotic expressionism. This antagonistic relationship results in abstraction that is at once candid and taciturn.
For this exhibition, Weiser presents seven paintings, a primarily grey-scale series...

Millions of Colors in the Shadownew works by Joe Kowalczyk
My ceramic sculptures are often the celebration of the irrational; a celebration of ideas, impulses, and desires that spring from the darker side of the subconscious. So instead of pushing away a thought and wondering, "Why did I think something so strange?‚Äù I celebrate it and turn it into a dra...
Anthony Meier Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Jim Hodges. In his third solo presentation at the gallery, Hodges debuts a series of five colored mosaic mirrors on panel.

Our bodies are moving canvases; the ornaments we wear are seen from different angles, in bright sun and evening shadows, at simple gatherings and fancy events. While jewelry often proclaims the wealth and status of its owner, each object can also tell other stories. These are stories of the cycle of life—engagements, weddings, births, deaths. Jewelry can function as a talisman, encapsu...
The Carved Brush showcases works by acclaimed Chinese artist Qi Baish. Born into a poor farming family and coming of age during China’s century of civil strife, Baishi became the most widely recognized Chinese artist of his time. His distinctly modern art broke through class and cultural barriers through use of expressive “carved” brushwork. Qi Baishi’s art is the ideal gatew...

For Buddhist practitioners, however, mandalas are not just images to view, but worlds...
