November 17th from 4 to 7 pm
December 15th from 4 to 6 pm

Gallery35 presents our traditional Small Works show with some new twists: an Art Salon where on request various artists might share their vision—and a table with gift items created by our artists.

The exhibited works—none larger than 150 sq. inches nor priced higher than $150— range from portraiture to abstracts to nature with a fanciful interpretation.

This is the perfect place to get an early start on your holiday shopping!

Minor Bishop joins Gallery 35 in Celebrating Murray Hill

Minor Bishop will present a filmed walking tour of the Murray Hill neighborhood and speak about his book of drawings of  the landmarks and architecture that are the  jewels of Murray Hill.

He has also donated a drawing to the “Murray Hill & Beyond” exhibition which opened September 29th at gallery35, 30 E 35th St.

Minor will present his talk and film on October 27 at 5:00 PM. As an architect and historian, former trustee of the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association and member of the Preservation and Design committee of MHNA, Minor will  share his knowledge of the history  and beauty of the area that he has lived in for over forty years. His book will be for sale.  Light refreshments will be served and the gallery show will be open for viewing.

The closing reception will be held on November 10, 4-6.

MURRAY HILL & BEYOND – an invitational show!

For the first time ever, gallery35 is making an artist call to the entire Murray Hill art community, inviting members of the Murray Hill Neighborhood Association and others living in the Murray Hill area to exhibit their art alongside our gallery35 artists.

The exhibition will open on September 29th.

We plan to display art highlighting the beauty of the neighborhood—celebrating the creative spirit of Murray Hill, its artists, its architectural beauty and gardens, its overlay of different historical periods from rural and revolutionary to turn of the century mansions and brownstones.

Works depicting other subjects will also be exhibited—hence the title “Murray Hill & Beyond.”

Interested artists can contact as soon as possible for details on how to participate in the exhibit.

Artist talks and Closing June 23, 4-7 pm

What is GREEN  \grēn\ ?

Let your imagination take flight! Visit The Green Show to see how ten Gallery35 artists have taken GREEN to new artistic heights!

Several of the works go international. Virginia Asman introduces her new series: Down Under in Green, digital montages based on her recent travels to Australia and New Zealand. Liza Papi’s acrylics on canvas and bamboo feature tropical leaves/foliages from Coroa Grande a village along the coast of Rio de Janeiro. Featured are photographs by Lilian Engel, Bev Thompson and Patricia Garbarini inspired by green in the natural world of beaches, gardens, and endangered species in the woodlands – and paintings related to solar energy by Naomi Blum. Also exhibiting are Marilyn Boddewyn, Ellen Mandelbaum, Marsha Peruo and Kristina Redick.

We invite you to join these artists when Gallery35 will celebrate all things GREEN with food and drink at our last art exhibition of the season!

Artists will also speak on their goals and techniques as they apply to this unique exhibit!

Our festivities will be accompanied by Joel Mandelbaum on the piano.

“To Be or Not To Be. New York City” Opens January 14th, 2012

Jan 14 – Feb 25, 2012.

The Mantle, in collaboration art@apt, proudly brings you our first ever art show, featuring five Burmese artists, hosted by Gallery35 in New York City. The show is open to the public and all works are for sale!

“To Be or Not To Be” seeks to capture the ambiguous nature of being Burmese not only in New York, but also in an increasingly globalized world. Is there an obligation for the Burmese artist to be vocal about injustices occurring back home? “This exhibition is a stage for me to say something loudly,” says Chaw Ei Thein. “I can channel a ‘voice’ for those people who cannot express themselves not only from Burma, but also all over the world.” Adds Min Kyaw Khine: “I want to let people know what is happening in Burma. I want Burmese people to live without fear—that is why I am participating in this show.”

For the participating artists, their artistic fever burns as hot as their political concerns. “After a few years living outside of Burma, I’ve come to see things differently… more artistically. I want you to see what I’ve seen and what I’ve been thinking,” says Kyawswar Thant.

Burma (Myanmar) is experiencing significant political change. Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi has been released from prison, alongside hundreds of political prisoners. Recently U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited the secretive country, and Suu Kyi’s political party, the National League for Democracy, has been given clearance to participate in upcoming elections. 2012 could be a formative year for the South East Asian country.

For Burmese artists, the time to ask “To Be or Not To Be” is now.





Opening Reception: January 14  4-7pm

SMALLworks III: Give the Gift of Art!

Eleven members of Gallery35 plan to show works sized 100 square inches or less and priced $100 or less.  In addition, greeting cards featuring the artists’ work will be available for sale. Chair Virginia Asman explains, “We decided to present these cards in order to give our visitors the option of purchasing these small art reproductions which are also suitable for framing. It is our hope that the cards along with the affordable exhibited art and our popular unframed art will inspire the giving of the gift of art—made in America—in support of our local artists.”

Opening Reception: Saturday December 10 from 4-7 pm.

Karen Neiman “Collagitude with Attitude” Closing Reception November 20 4-6pm

Autumn Leaves

The art of design and collage making is both intricate and absorbing- for both the artist and the viewer.  Outlining the general drawing and the collage pieces come together in a cohesive way.  By adding and subtracting various bits of papers and throw away items, a picture emerges and forms a firmer image. This suggests to me that the end of the painting is approaching.

Oudi Arroni “FACES” to open in September

September 22 – October 16, 2011
Opening Reception:  September 22, 6-8 pm

Artist’s Statement: In my long artistic career I have painted practically everything from landscape to still life to the human figure, but I have been most intrigued and haunted by the face, what the face says and what it really wants to say, the face always has two faces, the mask and what’s behind it.

Our heads are full of emotion clamoring for expression. Influenced by a myriad of circumstances, these sensations continually speak to us. Often undetectable these voices whisper to the depths of our souls. They continuously guide and shape our inner core and form our outer appearances. Read More
