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.

WHY SO SERIOUS? Jan. 4

WHY SO SERIOUS?
January 4th – January 20th, 2013
Opening Reception Fri. January 4th, 7:30-10pm

Some may feel that winter in New York City is a particularly bleak and less than excitable time. A side affect can be reclusive and introspective behavior, especially amongst artists. What better prescription for those ailments than laughter and the obliteration of the serious and emotional barriers that can separate spectacularly hung art in pristine galleries and the general public?

Artists:
Nick Greenwald . Carl Thibou . Julian Lorber . Peter Striffolino . Courtney Childress . Sean Flannigan . Angie Hughes . Lindsey Miscia . Steve Thomson & Cameron Blaylock . Jim Prez . Theresa Daddezio . Glenn Wonsettler . Andrew Sanchez . Joey Parlett . Adam Zucker . Ryan Bock . Mack Closmore . Sandra Cordero . Cereal Lab . Alden Stover . Matt Marello . Jim Torok . Christina Chobot . Lisa Levy . Andrew Birk . Ellisa Keller . Dave Beegun . Spencer Alexander . Jen Hitchings . Sessa Englund . Kenneth Murphy

algo differént POSTPONED; opens on November 9th!

Due to hurricane Sandy knocking out all subways from Manhattan to Brooklyn, the opening of algo differént will be rescheduled to open on Friday November 9th, along with the many other Bushwick galleries that planned to open this week. 

Meanwhile, if you reside in Brooklyn and have not yet ventured into the dark depths of lower Manhattan, I highly recommend it. Probably not alone, though. Here’s a teaser: half of the Williamsburg bridge is in darkness. Being surrounded by uninhabited buildings and silence in the world’s most important city is something you’ll probably never see again!

Algo is from the Spanish language meaning ‘something’ and différent is French for ‘different.’ The title represents the aesthetic and conceptual diversity within this group show, featuring four artists from Caribbean and Latin American descent. Weeknights is pleased to exhibit work created by artists part of such a rich culture that has inhabited and influenced so much of the city landscape we co-exist in.

Leo Castaneda, Born 1988, Cali, Colombia, is an interdisciplinary artist living in New York City. His works combine classical methods of illusionistic image-making with abstraction to create spaces that absorb the viewer. Castaneda then recreates events in his paintings and drawings using mediums such as interactive sculpture and performance, to engage his audience as participators rather than passive observers. Castaneda received his BFA from Cooper Union and is currently pursuing an MFA at Hunter College.

Juan Travieso is a Cuban painter currently pursuing his MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.He creates meaningful work about the injustices happening in the world today. Some of his works touch on topics like endangered species, the radioactive situations that Japan and Chernobyl are fighting, unsafe energy plants, and the embrace of sustainable and renewable energies. Travieso uses saturated color to create realistic paintings with geometrically abstract additions.

Edwige Charlot is a Haitian French artist printmaker living and working in Portland, ME. She is inspired by processes of examination, inquisition, and reflection. Her artworks and projects attempt to reconcile and explore perceptions, assumptions, and bias. Edwige uses different methods of printmaking to create delicate pieces of art that contain three-dimensional elements.

Dianne Hebbert is a Nicaraguan American artist based in Brooklyn, New York, currently freelancing in production and arts administration. She creates narratives by combining figures and imagined environments. These art works are made with a variety of mediums including printmaking (etching), paint, ink, and charcoal.

LAST TWO DAYS TO SEE micro/MACRO!

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.
