da Centotto: Events Forthcoming – Conversation and Closing (and a Contest?)

July 11, 2011

ESIBIZIONI, APERTURE, MOSTRE :: da Centotto

10 luglio 2011

Salve*,

*Anzitutto*, many thanks to those of you who joined us for the opening
of *Portfolio
x Appunti 2, 3: Visages Reliquary <http://centotto.com/>*, featuring new
bodies of work by Nate Anspaugh and Oliver Jones. If you were not able to
come then, or if you’d like to gaze upon the exhibit’s oft-obfuscatory
gazers once again, please let me know. You have yet a few more weeks to do
so.

On that note, please make *appunti* of your own for the following dates and
gatherings:

*Sunday, 17 July, 7.30pm*: Oliver’s and Nate’s *portfolio* talks at the
opening overlapped in ways that begat a rather rich discussion regarding the
variable efficacies and agencies of artwork that features, audaciously or
not, political content. As our discussion could have gone on much longer and
ramified further, we’d like to allow it do so. So we’ll be gathering at
Centotto next weekend to do precisely that. Come out to share your opinions,
or come just to listen. Anything goes. Soapboxes will not be provided, but
neither will they be verboten.

*Saturday, 30 July, 7-10pm*: Closing reception for *Portfolio x Appunti 2,
3: Visages Reliquary*. Last chance to see the exhibit. Or: "It’s your laaast
chaaance for pie." (Note: If you can name the source of that quote, you must
come to the closing to claim your prize. First correct answer wins. Prize
tbd.)

Both of the above gatherings will segue into post-gathering gatherings at The
Narrows <http://narrowsbar.com/>, where we’ll gather to sip on
Milano-Torinos and Lucky Lindys with Old Pals outside.

I did indeed say outside.

"If you don’t know, now you know."

(No prize for that one. Too easy.)

*A presto allora*,

Paul

Patricia Cronin in Places Exhibition

July 7, 2011

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

In case you are not away at some beautiful spot & are in town tonight, please stop by. I have a couple paintings from my luxury real estate series from a decade ago in the show. More info about these paintings inspired by Sotheby’s International Realty is here: http://www.patriciacronin.net/newpattie/art.html

"PLACES"

July 7- August 12, 2011

Gallery Summer hours: Tues-Fri 11AM-6PM (Monday by appointment only)

Opening Reception: July 7 Thursday 6-9 PM

Patricia Cronin, $15,000,000 (Southampton), oil on linen, 9" x 10", 2000

Artists: Lauder Bowden, Amelie Chabannes, Claire Ellen Corey, Patricia Cronin, Eva Davidova, Cliff Evans, Shingo Francis, Caoimhghin O’ Frathile, Jaye Rhee, Diana Shpungin, Anne Morgan Spalter, Jill Weber.

"Places" as a corralling title for a group show at first seems a bit general, somewhat non-descript but maybe it is more like wide-open, or even, vast. Places actually are very particular yet infinite. The artists included in this exhibition all invoke this very specific expanse. We are allowed to take advantage of these artists’ hospitality, which is divergently roomy or cramped, elegiac or concrete, taking us to a fantastical reality or making us uncomfortable and a bit itchy. Traveling through these works we land on very individual doorsteps but are not bound in any way. Man, you’re going places.

I hope you’re staying cool and having a wonderful summer.

All my best,
Pattie
