Located in a former carriage house in Center City Philadelphia, Dolan/Maxwell specializes in work by artists from the 1930’s to the present. The gallery works closely with the artists and the estates of artists that it represents. The gallery augments these works with carefully chosen pieces by artists, while exhibiting in 10 art fairs per year and continually spending time with those who come to seek work in the house in Philadelphia.The gallery will be bringing together a collection of works by various artists including Donald Teskey, Dox Thrash, Fred Becker, Morris Blackburn, Rachel Selekman and Steven Ford, at the Seattle art fair this year. Based in Seattle, a city as renowned for its natural beauty as its cultural landscape, the Seattle Art Fair stands as a one-of-a-kind destination for the best in modern and contemporary art and a showcase for the vibrant arts community of the Pacific Northwest. The fair brings together the region’s strong collector base; local, national, and international galleries; area museums and institutions; and an array of innovative public programming.

Weather Gauge

Donald Teskey’s affinity for the ocean and its moods is palpable in Weather Gauge, a new exhibition at The Hunt Museum. He has long been inspired by the sea and captures the essence of the west coast of Ireland in his powerfully evocative paintings of waves crashing against rocks on the county Mayo shoreline.

Teskey is the ‘weather gauge’. As a weather station measures the climate using automated equipment, he witnesses the shifting atmospheric conditions with his own sensory tools. Teskey hears the agitated surf and feels the capricious wind; he smells and tastes salty air and he places it all on his canvas. Always mindful of being in the moment, it is observation by absorption.Teskey’s portrayal of the Atlantic and its environs brings us to an understanding of how our natural surroundings have the power to instill in us a sense of place and shape our identity.

“Artists have always been attracted to the materiality of works on paper” – Donna de Salvo, chief curator of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.


SO Fine Art Editions presents ‘on paper’ featuring the works of 10 contemporary artists including Michael Canning, Blaise Drummond, Richard Gorman, John Graham, Stephen Lawlor, Hughie O’Donoghue, David O’Kane, Maurice Quillinan, Barbara Rae, Laurence Riddell, Donald Teskey and Samuel Walsh.

Paper, one of the most accessible and common of art media, has been used by artists for centuries as a surface for drawing and sketching. This exhibition showcases a variety of mediums within this genre; watercolours, gouache, charcoal, lithographs with collage and hand stitching, acrylic, Chinese ink and carborundum fine art prints.

Although each artist depicts their distinctive style, subject matter and colour palette, there exists an underlying dialogue and energy between the works. Works on paper play an important role in each of the foregoing artists’ practice and they are adept at manoeuvring through drawing, painting, etching and watercolour. By moving from canvas to paper and back again, they are able to extract varying degrees of intensity or subtlety from their vocabulary of images.

 

In Residence II

Thursday, 6th October 2016, 6-8pm

The Oliver Sears Gallery returns to London once more this October, bringing a carefully curated selection of contemporary Irish and International art to 33 Fitzroy Square, London W1T 5DX

 

Following the success of In Residence I, we have again chosen a private, domestic setting for In Residence II.  What sets this year’s In Residence apart from last year’s is the breadth of art and artists on show over four floors. Whereas Curator Brian Kennedy focused exclusively on Irish and Irish based artists for the inaugural London show, this time we have included works by seminal names that illustrate artistic context. Luminaries from the international art world such as Pablo Picasso, Diane Arbus, Uta Barth, Grayson Perry, David Hockney, Jenny Holzer, Alex Katz, Anselm Kiefer, Carol McNicoll and Andy Warhol are juxtaposed by Kennedy to sit alongside contemporary Irish greats.
