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!

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.
