News

This October, our display of the paintings and prints of James Malady continues. We have since learned that not only his sister, Aggie, but his daughter, Kathleen, and her own daughter, Danielle, are all artists carrying on the family tradition! We have added another recently found oil of a male model by James from his student days. For those who are interested, we may be able to create prints of original paintings at a much more affordable price. What a talented family—at least three artists that we know of. This show will continue to the end of October.


October 11 thru November 17 we mount an international show, “Any Father’s Son”—international male and female artists examining masculinity in multiple media: painting, collage, photography, ceramics. This is the first of two shows looking at perspectives of artists and subjects on gender in art. Another show, “Female/Feminist/Feminine” will be staged next year.

The “Any Father’s Son” show will look at attitudes regarding family relations and effects of paternal relations on the choices and subject matter of artists and collectors. Each artist will be asked how their relationship with their fathers affected their own choices and whether death of a parent, sibling, or child helped mold their artistic life.

Central in the show will be a painting by Mathieu Laca of Quebec of my own son created in 2015/16. Mathieu is a post-modern realist who works in oils with distorted and surrealistic methods to display inner realities. Among the other artists included will be Christopher Bird from Missouri, with watercolors; Rebecca Venn of Wisconsin with watercolor portraits; Marval Rex from Rochester with very radical ceramics’ Rafael Santiago of NYC with gender identity collage studies; Sebastián Moreno Coronel from Barcelona examining spirituality; Germa Marquez, a Spaniard from Germany with lovely acrylic and oil work; Salem Beiruti from Spain with fantasies men with birds, Masculum Ars from France, with a series of archangels in color and gold. Both Aurelio Monge from Spain and Jim Ferringer of Indiana examine more classical compositions of men in traditional poses. And many other US and international artists!

Watch for samples of the art to be shown!
