Continuing its 2016/2017 season, Gallery35 presents Glass & Gold—a two-person exhibit of the work of Ellen Mandelbaum and Karen Fitzgerald.

Both recognized artists, each bring a focus on light to their oeuvres. Mandelbaum began her career as a painter, but switched to working with glass. Her work appears in many public spaces; she has been commissioned to create glass-based work across the United States. Fitzgerald has exhibited across the US as well. Her work utilizes gilded grounds and is done on tondo forms. She has been working exclusively with the round form for nearly 30 years. Both artists often work with watercolor as a point of inspiration.

All events are free and open to the public.
Outside of these public hours, the gallery is open by appointment only.

Expressions of the Self:  September 10–October 23, 2016
Artists’ Reception:  September 17  6-8pm
Closing Event:  October 23  12:30-1:30pm

Gallery35 is opening its 2016/2017 season with Expressions of the Self—a themed exhibit that is a big departure from recent shows. Thirteen member artists have risen to the challenge of creating work that define “how they see themselves” using a variety of media including painting, photography and collage.

In portraying themselves, the artists have employed realism, abstraction, caricature, metaphor and interactivity. Closely examine the Expressions of the Self graphic for a sneak peak

To enhance the experience of our visitors, the artists have prepared statements to help viewers better understand the thought and creative processes behind their self-portraits.

The exhibit features self-portraits by:

Cari Clare, Denise Fryburg, Ingrid Sletten, John Connors, John Devaney, Kevin H Maxwell, Lois Ross, Marilyn Boddeyn, Rick Perez, Susan Harris-Demmet, Teresa Hommel, Valerie Lynch, and Virginia G Asman.

Gallery35 hopes that this compelling exhibit will inspire everyone who sees it to contemplate what would be their own “expression of the self”!

Gallery35 is pleased to present a solo art exhibit by John Devaney—a Murray Hill resident—who became an exhibiting member of the gallery in 2014

In a manner described as “Dickensian,” he reports on the endless changing shapes of people and their environments in a city half recognizable and half imagined.

John is a recipient of a National Endowment Fellowship in Painting, a Harvard Research Fellow in theVisual Arts, McDowell and Yaddo Residencies, and has been awarded mural commissions from the University of Connecticut, The Morgan Art Center, and the City of Cambridge. His paintings have been included in numerous museum and gallery exhibitions, including the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, the List Visual Art Center, the Danforth, Springfield, Boston Museum School, and the Lyman-Allan Museum.
