Lora Schlesinger is pleased to announce Adonna Khare's fourth solo-exhibition with the gallery. In the Clouds features new drawings by the artist. The exhibition is on view through July 20, 2013.
Adonna Khare's new drawings are whimsical, meticulous, solemn, playful, and humorous. Filled with an array of complex narratives, Khare's drawings make it easy to abandon the world around you and delve into her mystifying world of Bears, Antelopes, Chimp, Bunnies and Butterflies. Backgrounds filled with tornadoes, whirlpools, waterfalls and storm clouds represent life's unpredictability, ever-evolving change, and the unknown. All of Khare's animals caught in the foreground of a storm brewing behind them, a storm of change and uncertainty; once it arrives you don't know whether there will be severe damage or you'll come out unscathed and better off.
This past fall Khare won the Public Award at ArtPrize2012, the largest art competition in the world, which consisted of 1,619 works of art by artists from 56 countries. With over 400,000 attendees Adonna Khare took home the first prize. In the Clouds is Khare's response to the changes in her life that have past and the changes that are yet to come since winning the award.
Adonna Khare received her MFA from California State University, Long Beach. Her drawings were selected for the Surrealism Today exhibition at the Nassau County Museum in Roslyn NY. She was included in the Long Beach Museum of Art's "Sweet Subversives, Contemporary California Drawing 2009-2010" and was given a one-person show in 2010 titled "The World of Adonna Khare: Beasts, Backpacks and Curious Creatures", at the William D. Cannon Art Gallery in Carslbad, California.
The East Gallery presents Cindy Kane's second solo-exhibition, Gravity, featuring new paintings on ceramic tiles by the artist. Kane visits the themes of family life, anxiety about the environment or politics, and the repetitive patterns in nature. Her work exudes an intimate visual conversation between the mind and the hands, and the exploration of materials. Centered around a 40 x 40 inch piece which serves as the theme of the show, "Gravity" depicts a black bird falling through space, framed by a colorful border which anchors the bird in a perpetual free fall to the earth.
Cindy Kane lives and works in Martha's Vineyard, Ma.. She has exhibited nationally with various galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Kansas City, and Denver, and with museums such as the Art Complex Museum in Massachusetts, The Katonah Museum in Katonah New York, and the Hunterdon Museum of Art in New Jersey. In the fall of 2013 Kane will have her first public installation at the Flatiron Prow Art Space in New York City.
