Frankie Rice will be participating in a two-person exhibition along with artist Gio Black Peter. Gesticulation opens on Friday, October 12, 2018 at LaMontagne Gallery in Boston, MA. For this exhibition, Rice will be exhibiting new sculptures, as a return to his three-dimensions tendencies. The sculptural work of Rice stands side by side with a series of abstract paintings by Gio Black Peter as a monumental statement against the limiting concept of art consisting merely of onjects on display. The exhibition will be on view through November 13, 2018. LaMontagne Gallery is located at 460 Harrison Avenue , A16, Boston, MA.
In our new ongoing series, Mixtape, we take a look at New Hampshire based artist Michael Phillips. A young and talented individual, who in his recent work is striking at the chore of abstract painting with a fresh and fascinating visual vocabulary. Regardless of his location or geographical demographic the talented painter strikes at the heart of his fellow metropolitan peers. We discovered Michael through mutual friends and the owners of Kelley Stelling Contemporary, an up and coming gallery located in Manchester, New Hampshire.
On March 8th, Launch F18 closed its final exhibition at the 94 Allen St. space in New York. As we bid farewell to the space, we remind ourselves that since its inception, one of Launch F18’s attributes has been its willingness to be malleable which, over the past 6 years, has landed us in new spaces, promoted new adventures and above all, new oppertunites for our artists.
Among this exhibition’s beautifully made works is a life-size representation of a sidewalk mailbox lying on its side. Stripped of all extraneous details and colored entirely powder blue, it has an almost immaterial quality; it’s a Platonic ideal of the standard mailbox.
Planned, organized and curated by Painting Professor Richard Heipp, the exhibition includes the work of 26 artists representing each of the school’s studio areas of concentration and features a wide variety of media, styles and approaches.
