Billy Hertz and Tom Schnepf have always known how to bring people together, whether they were putting on parties in East Market before it was NuLu, or at their new downtown mega-gallery.
So we panicked when we saw we forgot to post that the opening reception for Emily Church and Karen Wilkin is today at Galerie Hertz. And Billy and Tom know how to put on a great party, especially with their new garden.
From their release:
Emily Church’s paintings hover between allusion and abstraction. Provocative, often intensely colored configurations float against zones of close-valued, subdued hues and delicate tones; suggestive shapes coalesce out of atmospheric expanses. These elusive images resist precise identification, yet they trigger associations with such disparate sources as landscape and mythology. Church’s simultaneously idiosyncratic and archetypical images make her a young painter to watch.
Karen Wilkin is a New York-based independent curator and critic specializing in 20th century modernism. A native New Yorker, educated at Barnard College and Columbia University, she was awarded a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and a Fulbright Scholarship, to Rome. She is the author of monographs on Stuart Davis, David Smith, Anthony Caro, Kenneth Noland, Helen Frankenthaler, Giorgio Morandi, and Hans Hofmann, and has organized and contributed to exhibitions of the work of these artists, among others, internationally.
The drawings in this exhibition are “quiet and powerful.” The small scale works (o/p) are little gems. The artist gives powerful voice to a small footprint; equally perfect for the seasoned or new collector. Purchase one or a suite.
So please join us this Sunday for fantastic art, great music & good conversations.
The reception is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with music by Charles Rivera.
The Church/Wilkin runs today through July 28.
Galerie Hertz is at 1253 S. Preston St. between Germantown and Old Louisville.
