Summer of Love @ Kenise Barnes Fine Art Tickets
Jul 13 – Sep 1 all-day
Summer of Love @ Kenise Barnes Fine Art |  |  |

New exhibition: July 13 – September 1, 2017
Reception: Thursday evening, July 13, 6:30 – 8:00, Public Invited
Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10 – 5:30

Summer of Love (50 years after 1967)

Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to celebrate the summer of 2017 with a tribute to the legendary summer of 1967: The Summer of Love. In the words of Abbie Hoffman, “The cry of ‘Flower Power’ echoes through the land. We shall not wilt. Let a thousand flowers bloom.” (Workshop in Nonviolence, May 1967)

This exuberant exhibition includes Mary Judge’s powdered pigment Pop Flower series, the highly imaginative quasi-landscapes by Gabe Brown, David Konigsberg’s romantically interpreted flower paintings inspired by his personal garden and Melanie Parke’s lushly painted abstractions, all of which celebrate the joie de vivre and the spirit of freedom embodied in long summer days.

Kingston, NY-based artist Gabe Brown explores a world beyond tangible reality, searching for meaning in the unknown. The artist writes: “Art is like magic, an illusion created by the force of humanity. Our choices in life can be amazing portals for adventure”. Brown’s paintings create a secret recipe for an inner landscape of the human condition, narrative vignettes that are both alluring and mysterious. Nature and those elements existing in its microcosm become metaphors for a strange and at times super reality, a parallel universe that questions the natural scheme of life itself. Using a visual vocabulary derived from a world that often goes unnoticed, Brown begins to reinvent reality.

Mary Judge’s work is about transformation through repetition, the concept of endless possibilities and underlying order and chance are inherent in her processes. The Pop Flower series are powdered pigment drawings made by laying a series of handmade perforated stencils on rag paper then pouncing the stencils with sacks of pure powdered pigments. The ground pigments pass through the perforations, creating patterns, building the multi-layered compositions and velvety surfaces of this ongoing series. Judge has developed this technique based on the Italian process spolvero (“dust”) as used by renaissance artists to transfer drawings to wet plaster for fresco painting. Judge’s work is in collections and museums worldwide. The artist lives and work in St. Louis, MO and New York, NY.

David Konigsberg bridges the divide between art and real life in narrative paintings that are both objective and conceptual. His work occupies a netherworld of image and memory in his very personal narratives, which are not meant to be deciphered but experienced as emotional possibilities. This exhibition features a series of flower paintings that are a tender and romantic observation of life through the language of flowers. The artist’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and has been featured in The New York Times, Chronogram, Brooklyn Journal and numerous art and culture blogs. David Konigsberg lives and works in Hudson, NY.

Michigan-based artist Melanie Parke contributes a series of abstract paintings that emerge from her own life through the ideology of memory. Flowers bind the artist to friendships and the women in her life, that sentiment propels her to paint compositions which reference lush clusters of time. Specific interiors, botanical species and landscapes are often implied through these abstract compositions. By shifting the emphasis to pattern, texture and tone, she works to destabilize notions of exacting representation to build on a sensation of memory which conjures both comfort and longing. Parke’s paintings are widely exhibited throughout the United States.

Additional space in the galleries is reserved to showcase our more than 50 artists from around the country. In addition, our flat files house hundreds of unframed works on paper and we maintain an extensive lower level inventory warehouse that includes a private presentation room.

In-home or office consultations are complimentary and artwork is available on an on-approval basis.

Please contact the gallery for images, information or to arrange a preview of our exhibitions.

To Honor 9/11 Hero Answer the Call Offering “Ride Like Vinny” Tickets to the Famed Coney Island Cyclone @ Coney Island Tickets
Jul 26 – Nov 1 all-day
To Honor 9/11 Hero Answer the Call Offering “Ride Like Vinny” Tickets to the Famed Coney Island Cyclone @ Coney Island |  |  |

Money raised benefits Answer the Call (Formerly the N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund)

“Ride Like Vinny” tickets are now on sale through September 6, to help raise funds for the Answer the Call: N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund. Each ticket costs $12 and entitles the bearer to one ride on the legendary Coney Island Cyclone through November 1.

The weekend before September 11, 2001, FDNY Captain Vincent Giammona and his wife took their daughters to Coney Island for the day. As they were driving home, Vinny turned back and saw the Cyclone Roller Coaster. He told his family he needed to go back to ride it even though the ride was closed. Vinny spotted a worker and explained his 40th birthday was coming up on Tuesday and that he was a NYC Firefighter. His wish was granted. Vinny was the only one on the roller coaster. He sat in the front car, with one hand up, and a huge smile on his face, while his wife and daughters cheered from behind the fence. Tragically, it was his final birthday wish.

A few days later, on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Vinny turned 40 years old. Vinny was among the 403 FDNY, NYPD, and PAPD heroes that sacrificed their lives in the line of duty while protecting our city that day.

“Ride Like Vinny” seeks to honor the selfless and heroic spirit with which Vinny and our heroes died, while also remembering and celebrating the incredible spirit with which they lived. The money raised from these special “Ride Like Vinny” tickets will enable the N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund, known by Answer the Call, to continue to help the families of our fallen heroes. Each “Ride Like Vinny” ticket is good for one admission on The Coney Island Cyclone and can be used any day before November 1, 2017.

Since Answer the Call was founded in 1985 by Former NY Met Daniel “Rusty” Staub, the organization has distributed over $135 million directly to the families of those who lost a loved one in the line of duty. It is the only nonprofit organization that provides immediate and ongoing financial assistance to the families of NYPD, FDNY, and PAPD heroes killed in the line of duty. Answer the Call’s goal is to provide meaningful support for the rest of a widow or widower’s life. In 2017 alone, they will help nearly 600 families and distribute over $4 million.

In addition, Israeli dancing with Camp Zeke for all ages will take place throughout the day. Face painting by Maria, as well as juggler Ned Gelfars, whose show is full of juggling, magic, and an incredible amount of hilarious, good-natured audience participation, will also be on hand to provide additional family activities and fun throughout the day.

The event is free (including parking) and open to the public, and will be held rain or shine. Attendees are welcome to bring chairs, blankets, and picnics. Food, including ice cream and ices trucks and snacks (pizza, and more) will be available for purchase. A vendor exhibition area including Jewish Art/Judaica, jewelry and more will be open throughout the festival. “There is something for everyone, from children to adults, at this festival. We have lined up amazing musical performers, as well as fun activities for kids. We hope all members of the community, regardless of faith, will join us for this very festive day”, said Elliot Forchheimer, Executive Director of The Westchester Jewish Council.

Pre-registration is requested at www.wjcouncil.org. All registrants will be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift card. The winner will be contacted via email the Tuesday following the festival. This event is sponsored in part by the Morris & Sylvia Trachten Family Foundation.
