WEEKNIGHTS has now become Associated Gallery

ImageWe have some big news! WEEKNIGHTS is transitioning into Associated Gallery. Formerly run by Jen Hitchings in part of her rented studio space in Bushwick, Weeknights outgrew its location and potential, and needed to expand and take on more diverse exhibitions. Associated is an amalgamation of Jen Hitchings, Theresa Daddezio, and Julian Jimarez-Howard (also of Outlet Fine Art). The three artists and curatorial entrepreneurs have decided to join forces and collaboratively curate exhibitions in the same location that Weeknights has been, and on a slightly larger scale. We will emphasize exhibitions that challenge traditional notions of an art gallery, and at times intermix both visual and aural components, while showcasing emerging artists from Brooklyn and abroad.

WEEKNIGHTS sincerely thanks all of those who have become involved with the gallery since August. Many amazing friendships and connections have been made through the art and artists who have passed through the space. We hope that all of these connections will remain strong and continue to growwith our new endeavor. Here are a few links to press we have received, and we’re still waiting for a big one: a review of Julian Kreimer: Coming and Going in Art in America!

Julian Kreimer: Coming and Going closed / next update

Coming and Going by Julian Kreimer is now closed; if you did not get to see the exhibition or would like to discuss any of the works with us, please inquire via email.

WEEKNIGHTS will be transitioning into a slightly newer gallery, with more space and a new staff, beginning March 9th. Bushwick galleries will be open until 10pm that night, in conjunction with the Armory Show, and it will be our first night open as a new gallery. Stay tuned for more details including gallery name, contact, hours, and our first exhibition opening that night!

WEEKNIGHTS (Jen Hitchings) would like to thoroughly and sincerely thank all who have participated in the shows that have occurred since opening in August of 2012. We have been able to have 5 shows, all varying vastly in content, and in doing so have brought together many creative people of all ages and stages in their artistic careers. I say we because none of these interactions, sales, and fun could have happened without the support group that has grown throughout the time that this tiny exhibition space has functioned. We hope that you will all continue to stay in touch with us regarding our future endeavors.

micro/MACRO: Christine Mahoney & Matthew Vollgraff

micro/MACRO
Christine Mahoney & Matthew Vollgraff
Opening Reception Fri. Sept. 28, 2012. 7-10pm
Open Tues-Weds nights 7.30-11pm and by app.
On view until Oct. 28
Weeknights is pleased to present micro/MACRO, a two-person exhibition featuring paintings by Christine Mahoney and Drawings by Matthew Vollgraff. Each artist investigates, with extraordinary and obsessive detail, unnoticed and inarticulable aspects of human experience. If verbal communication ceased to exist and we were suddenly forced to interact and understand in utter silence, Mahoney’s work would serve as maps leading us to the next geographical destination, as well as the diaries of our distant memories, and Vollgraff’s drawings as an extensive and fascinating research into the limits and infinity of visual forms.

“I’m observing instances from afar… they’re separate from me” Mahoney says of her paintings, hinting at a possible concern with landscape. The reflective, reactive paint, which sometimes alludes to a galactic expanse, is overlaid with lines and dots that vibrate, repeat, and always lead to a new place in the painting. There is a sense of traveling (literal and visual) which seems never-ending, and the space that exists far beyond the physical edges of the piece becomes a mysterious void, raising questions about familiarity and understanding. She is an observer documenting time and/or place, tempting the viewer to enter her perspective while allowing them to question their own.Vollgraff’s ink drawings initially read as microscopic organic forms, but upon closer inspection, they become fleeting abstractions of unidentifiable undulations. They are “explorations of the plentitude of microcosmic detail” says Vollgraff. They refuse to represent any specific, tangible object; they exist as “spontaneous morphological irruptions.” The forms are contained within the confines of the paper’s edges, but expand and dissolve outwards, alluding to an infinitesimal cosmos of marks and strokes whose forms coincide with their own vanishing point.

Friends of Friends

… is a group show of exactly that: friends, of friends, of friends. When presenting oneself with the task of hanging roughly 30 works by 22 artists, some of which have no formal training and have never exhibited their work in the past, amongst others who have been showing and selling for a number of years, one is presented with dozens of comparisons and thus the ability to see differences and similarities in the aesthetic of a generation, as all of the artists do have one thing in common: a social community. Most of these artists are, by default, connected by location as well (though two are currently based in Mexico.)

Please contact weeknightsgallery@gmail.com to inquire about any artwork below as they are all for sale and range from $1.75 – $875.00
