Carole Hallé Exhibition
Wood and Graphite

September 5 – October 5, 2015

Opening Reception: September 5, 2015 5-7 pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents the first solo exhibition of French born, New York based artist Carole Hallé. The exhibition will include a collection of her woodcarvings as well as several of her large drawings.

Visual artist and musician Mark Safan writes about her work: “I have observed her singular vision to articulate the sensual forms that are so strikingly hers. What is notable in the large scale drawings is the process that brings them into being; an intuitive and experiential groping, exploring, defining, a total involvement that finally envelops the viewer. The large sculptural forms seem to have no beginning and no end. It is not the reality of the forms per se that is the subject but rather the persistent need to assert them. Interestingly, in her professional life, Carole has worked with architects to reproduce lost or damaged architectural elements. This is painstaking and exacting work. There is no room for error. This tendency, the need to get it right, can also be seen in her artwork. It is the combination of these dual approaches, intuitive and reality based, that gives her work a unique presence.”

Come and join us Saturday September 5th for the opening reception of Ms Hallé’s recent works and discuss her unique process and technique at our gallery in Hudson, New York.

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents an exhibition of new works
by Polish -American artist Jerzy Kubina.

The exhibition opens August 1 and runs through August 31.
Opening Reception: August 1, 2015 5-7 pm

 

“I do not limit myself to a classical representation of an image. I’m in constant search for new media
which not only enriches the subject, but also inspires me to new forms of expression.
Visual appreciation is a creative exercise performed in a specified time, and a specific emotional state.
The subject must be individual and unique.
I do not attempt to keep a tight rein on my art’s framework, but give myself the opportunity to individualize each of the works.
My present concerns are of the sacred and the profane, always longing for harmony, accompanied by destruction and devastation, my inner world translates that pulse into color images. My new works are a continuation of the process of creating art for art’s sake.”

-Jerzy Kubina

Edward Avedisian Exhibition
October 18 – November 18, 2014

Opening Reception: October 18, 2014 5-7 pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents an exhibition of works by American artist Edward Avedisian. The exhibition opens October 18 and runs through November 18.
Mr. Edward Avedisian was born in Lowell, Mass., in 1936 and studied art at the Boston Museum School. By the late 1950s he was living in New York, part of a generation of promising young painters that included Frank Stella, Larry Poons and Darby Bannard. From 1958 to 1963 Mr. Avedisian had six solo shows in New York galleries, including two at the Robert Elkon Gallery, where he continued to show almost every year until 1975.
In the mid-1970s Mr. Avedisian moved to Hudson and became less visible. His paintings soon began shifting toward representation; he took to calling his abstract paintings “a period style.” But he continued to be well served by his feeling for color, scale and surface. His landscapes described his surroundings in blunt, flat shapes and singing hues.

Avedisian’s work may be found in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; the Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Denver Art Museum, Colorado; the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan; the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York; the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, New York; the Portland Art Museum, Oregon; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor; the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut.
Come and join us in the opening reception to see Edward Avedisian’s inspiring artwork, and discuss his unique technique, and approach to creativity in art at our gallery in Hudson NY.

Jerzy Kubina Exhibition
July 4 – July 31, 2014

Opening Reception: July 5,2014 5-7 pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents an exhibition of works by Polish -American artist Jerzy Kubina. The exhibition opens July 4 and runs through July 31. Jerzy Kubina describes his art as the “Ceaseless observation of the constantly changing reality that surrounds me, and provokes a struggle for a new quality of expression. A genuine creative process is fundamental to my exploration. My artistic efforts are an attempt to express my reflections on spiritual and existential values.”

Mr Kubina graduated graduated “Magna Cum Laude” from the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, Poland, Department of Painting, under individual instruction of Prof. Jan Szancenbach. A selection of his most recent exhibitions includes BWA Zamosc, Zamosc, Poland; Museum Convento de Carmen Guadalajara, Mexico; Real Art Ways Gallery, Hartford, CT, and 80 Washington Square East Galleries, New York, NY.

Mr. Kubina was born in the beautiful Renaissance town of Zamosc, Poland. He studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Krakow, the oldest and most prestigious art university in Poland. During those early years, he was already sensitive to the influence of expressionist masters, especially Dutch American abstract expressionist artist Willem de Kooning.

In December 1989, Kubina is part of the very extravagant opening of the famous Prisunic Gallery, one of the pioneering galleries, which found a home in New York City’s old Meat Market.This exposure puts him inline for a memorable year in Paris under the tutelage of the Prisunic Gallery owners. But after a year filled with excitement and partying, the fun wears out and Kubina returns to New York City in search for more meaning and a new direction..

He uses silk for canvas in most of his work, combining dry pigments oxidation paint, shellac, wax, and other mixed media, mostly born from Mother Earth. His colors are very expressive of his fascination with Gaia. The browns that bleed their “rusty elements” into the turquoise greens provoke an undeniable sense of belonging and yearning at the same time.

Come and join us in the opening reception to see Mr Kubina’s inspiring artwork, and discuss his unique technique, and approach to creativity in art at our gallery in Hudson, NY.

Menahem Lewin (1918 – 2012) Exhibition
May 3 – May 31 2014

Opening Reception:  May 3, 4pm-7pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents Menahem Lewin, an exhibition of works by American artist  Menahem Lewin. The exhibition opens May3 and runs through May 31.

Menahem Lewin was an artist who pursued his own unique vision through the turbulent years of the early 20th century. He was born in 1917 in Rishon LeTzion, Israel. His work is distinct in expressing vividly the stubbornness and independence of a true Sabrah.

Menahem Lewin was a fourth generation Israeli. His great grandfather was one of the founding settlers of Rishon LeTzion, which was one of the first Jewish settlements in Israel. His grandfather was the Gabai (overseer) of the Grah shul in Meah Shaarim, one of the first settlements outside the walls of Jerusalem. His father was a manager at the Rothschild vineyards in Rishon LeTzion. The family’s hardship forced them to search a promising new life in America when Lewin was only six years old; from the experience of leaving his birth home, he carried in throughout his life the identity of the Jew as a stranger in a new land – an outsider gazing in – seeing the darkness behind the sparkling surface of America. Until the end of his life, he retained the desire to return to his beloved Rishon and live peacefully the rest of his days there.

Lewin’s vision seeks to explore beauty in the array of abstract forms, yet at the same time he uses his medium to portray the darkness and lack of meaning that he perceives below the surface of reality. He returns persistently to the themes of the inevitability of death and sexuality. In addition to these works Lewin Menahem produced a large number of still life and landscapes, the latter inspired by the mountains and clouds of the Catskill Mountains in NY.

Come and join us in the opening reception to see Mr Lewin’s magnificent artwork, and discuss his extraordinary life at our gallery in Hudson NY.

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents Lloyd Martin, an exhibition of dynamic new works by American artist Lloyd Martin. The exhibition opens June 29th and runs through July 29th. “Having embraced an abstract language in which the meaning of his work is derived solely from the plastic properties of his paint, Martin has liberated himself from the need to use recognizable imagery.…” Henry McMahon Art New England.

A Rhode Island School of Design graduate, Martin has received the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Fellowship in Painting. He has also been awarded the Fellowship in Drawing three times, revealing his exceptional knowledge of line and form. His command of this skill is evident in his work for the Landfall Press.

In her review of Martin’s work, Maureen Mullarkey writes: “”The fascination of Martin’s painting lies in its pitch-perfect balance between the constraints of a formal grid and the rhythmic movement of horizontal bands within it.” June 29th at — to meet the artist.
