On Air: New paintings by Josette Urso

Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to open the 2018 exhibition season with a solo show featuring new oil paintings by Brooklyn artist Josette Urso.

Teetering between the urban and natural, Josette Urso makes paintings and drawings working directly and urgently in response to her immediate environment. Her approach involves moment-to-moment extrapolation governed by intuitive leaps of scale, color and wayward geometry. In the artist’s collages, the visual space is simultaneously highly randomized and highly ordered. The play of visual coincidence creates pleasures, just as it keys us into the generative power of chaos. In all her work, Urso’s visual contrasts and cross-fertilizations unfold and are cumulative, non-linear, free flowing and interpretive. Space becomes an ambiguous and malleable substance; its manipulation and acrobatic mark-making become a kind of gymnasium of expertly-placed color and shape.

“For me, drawing and painting parallel the act of seeing and are the most direct links to private time with the physical world. Despite the urgency of my process, as I work, time still slows down. My work becomes a record of this exploration and a reflection of my inherent energy and reason for living.” – Josette Urso, 2017

The artist is the recipient of grants from The Adolph and Ester Gottlieb Foundation and The Pollack-Krasner Foundation and has been honored with residencies at Yaddo Foundation, UCross Foundation, Millay Foundation in the United States, as well as residencies in Spain, Germany, Ireland, Cambodia and Taiwan. Urso’s artwork has been acquired by numerous museums and private collections worldwide including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY, The Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa, FL, Stadtmuseum, Schwandorf, Germany and Springfield Museum of Art, Springfield, OH, to name a few. Urso lives and works in Brooklyn.

Please contact the gallery for images and additional information or to arrange a preview of the exhibition.

We maintain an extensive inventory in our lower-level warehouse that includes a private presentation room. We always have a wide selection of paintings, drawings, prints, monoprints and photographs to offer collectors.

In-home or in-office consultations are complimentary. Artwork may be seen three day on-approval basis. Delivery and installation available.

Revivify: New work by Susan English, Catherine Latson and Janna Watson

Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to open the 2018 exhibition season with a group show featuring new work by Susan English, Catherine Latson and Janna Watson.

Boundless curiosity, close observation, and patience are manifest in the gorgeous work of Catherine Latson. The Specimen Series is inspired by sea anemones and the motion of a water-bound world, exploring forms that blur the lines between animal and plant, realism and fantasy, sculpture and specimen. Radial symmetry and tentacle structures are common denominators in the mysterious variety of forms in Latson’s newest work. Each wall sculpture describes a hybridized and imagined organism in arrested motion.

Latson’s complex artworks belie her simple materials. The artist hand-dyes embroidery floss in variations of a single dominant color and wraps the thread tightly and skillfully around her armature. The construction of each work entails countless hours of whipping and knotting, resulting in dense, rich color and graceful, compelling compositions.
Catherine Latson earned a BA in Biology from Macalester College, St Paul, MN. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, including at The Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY, and in the Macy’s Flowers Shows in Philadelphia, PA and New York, NY and has been featured in the American Craft Magazine and The New York Times. The artist works in Yonkers, NY.

Susan English is inspired by light — the way it refracts on the wind-ruffled surface of the Hudson River, or is absorbed by the shadow of a building, or slices through venetian blinds. By watching light in relation to objects and environments, the artist distills her palette of color for her reductive abstract paintings. In the artist’s words: “Landscapes condense into shapes of color for me: when I look at a mountain across the river I see its blue shadow as a separate solid, a discrete entity. I try to precisely determine what that color is, its density, its timbre in order to evoke this expression of light and mass in my paintings”.
English makes her evocative surfaces of nuanced colors by pouring layers of tinted polymer on wood panel. The poured polymer mimics nature: a layer of paint hardens like ice or mud; the material’s thickness and viscosity informs the finished appearance. Paint coagulates and gathers in the cracks and fissures of the artist’s drawing under the glossy surface, a result of the delicate and flexible relationship between control and accident. The painted surfaces range from matte to glossy, alternatively absorbing or reflecting light in response to the available illumination and the position of the viewer. Ultimately, the panels are choreographed into horizontal or vertical sequences to create a narrative of color, space, and light.

Susan English’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions throughout the United Sates. English received a fellowship at the Saltenstall Foundation for the Arts, Ithaca, NY and was artist in residency at Habitat for Artists, Garrison, NY. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Chronogram, Abstract Art Online and the Philadelphia Inquirer, to name a few. English earned an MFA from Hunter College, New York, NY and BA from Hamilton College, Clinton, NY. She lives and works in Cold Spring, NY.

Janna Watson is a young artist who has quickly made an impression on the contemporary art scene. Her abstract compositions and energetic brushstrokes possess an elegant and powerful vitality. A masterful colorist, Watson’s paintings are a carefully balanced orchestra of color. She creates energetic tension between deliberate and confident marks and spontaneous drips and gestures that are artifacts of her intuitive process. Watson’s compositions are an intriguing assertion of bold gesture set against atmospheric expression. Watson’s rich palette is further amplified by the addition of a high-gloss resin finish that deepens the illusionistic space and reflects light.

The artist is widely exhibited internationally. Watson’s paintings can be found in several significant collections, including in the Toronto collections of TD Bank Financial Group, CIBC, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and the HBC Global Art Collection in New York. In 2017, she was selected to create a mural-size painting for the feature space in AURA, North America’s largest condominium building. Watson earned a BFA in Drawing and Painting from Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, ON. The artist lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

Picasso’s Pyrenees @ Bronxville Public Library Tickets
Jan 18 @ 7:00 pm
Picasso's Pyrenees @ Bronxville Public Library |  |  |

About 100 years ago, a little mountain town in the French Pyrenees called Ceret became a center of Modern Art. Up-and-coming artists such as Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Gris spent summers here in the teens of the last century. It was here that Picasso and Braque developed analytical cubism. This group became known as the School of Ceret. After WWI, another wave of artists and writers, including Soutine, Dufy, and Cocteau descended on the town. During WWII, artists fleeing Nazism settled there, among them Chagall, Dubuffet, and Tzara. Registration required: 914-337-7680 ext. 24

Early Childhood Music Classes Open House @ Hoff-Barthelson Music School |  |  |

Hoff-Barthelson Music School Hosts Early Childhood Open House
Join in the fun of a music and movement class, and learn about the School’s offerings
Enrolling now for Spring: New Offerings include Beginning Ukulele and Petite Chorus

Join in the fun of a music and movement class at our Early Childhood Open House on Saturday, January 20! Learn about the Schools offerings including our new Beginning Ukulele class, Petite Chorus and Saturday Songs, a class where children ages 3 and 4 explore musical concepts. (Snow date: January 27, 2018). Children ages 3 months to 5 years and their adults are invited to participate in a class at 12:30 pm, followed by a brief Q & A with faculty, and a reception during which you can socialize with other families.

Exercises and games during classes involve singing, moving and improvising; using small percussion instruments to promote inner hearing and rhythmic sensitivity; and working with a variety of whimsical materials to inspire the imagination. Through these activities, our talented faculty members guide young students to develop many of the skills involved in music-making and a joyful bond grows between children and their adults as they listen, sing and move together with the music.

About the Early Childhood Program:
Hoff-Barthelson’s Early Childhood Program is grounded in Dalcroze Eurhythmics – a method of teaching that pairs music and movement to catalyze the development of children’s minds and bodies. Even the very youngest children develop focus, spatial awareness, gross motor skills, social skills, and the ability to work with others – all while having fun! Classes are available for parents/caregivers with their children as well as in a “drop-off” format for children who enjoy attending music class independently. Classes are taught by certified teachers and utilize live music. For families interested in taking the first steps in learning to play an instrument, Little Pipers Recorder Classes, Suzuki Pre-Twinklers and Beginning Ukulele are hands-on classes for older threes and up.

“The classes, grouped by age, are dynamic and interactive,” said Laura Barnet, Early Childhood Music Specialist at Hoff-Barthelson. “Children love music. It is something that they can participate in at a young age; it fosters their complete development.”

New for 2018:
New classes beginning in January 2018 include Beginning Ukulele and Petite Chorus, both for grades K-2 and Saturday Songs, a class where children ages 3 and 4 explore musical concepts. These fun, interactive and informative new classes are a great way to introduce young children to musical instruction in a social setting with other children of similar ages, and is the perfect first step to private lesson instruction as children get older.
