DECORDOVA AND FRUITLANDS

GROUP SHOW
NEW ENGLAND TRIENNIAL 2022
April 8 – September 11, 2022

Prioritizing change over stability, many of the artists’
practices involve processes of unmaking and remaking—patching
things together, dissecting, and rebuilding forms using
discarded parts. Their collective artistry reveals interconnected
tendencies: a focus on kinship and ancestral lineages; a
search for one’s place in the world; the visualization of
data; themes of ruin and decay, and processes of alchemical
transmutation. Artists in this exhibition grapple with difficult
and unjust moments of history and contemporary life. Some employ
generations-old creative traditions in poetic, passionate, and
informed ways. Altogether, their work unearths hidden energies
and stories surfacing at a time defined by change and resilience.



KRANZBERG ARTS FOUNDATION

GROUP SHOW
SONGS OF FIRE
April 1 – July 9, 2022
Sophie’s Artist Lounge
Curated by JPW3 and Torie Zalben

Bringing together twenty-one American artists working
across disciplines, the exhibition heralds a moment
of celebration against a backdrop of knowing uncertainty.
The title Songs of Fire is taken from an offhand
utterance by a TV chef, using the phrase to describe
a dish in progress. Taking the metaphor one step further,
the exhibition revels in a process of transformation
out of chaos.

GROUP SHOW
STAND WITH UKRAINE
March 18 – 19, 2022

Following on from 8 years of war in Ukrainian Donbas,
24 February 2022 marked the beginning of Russia’s full-scale
assault on Ukraine. The world has since become witness to
unjustified destruction, suffering and damage caused by this
aggression, while at the same time being amazed and inspired
by the courage of Ukrainian people. In a crisis that touched
Hales in a very direct way (one of the members of our team is
Ukrainian, born and raised in Kyiv) we want to lend support to
those who need it most.

MY REFLECTION OF YOU
February 24 – June 25, 2022
Presented by:Alexander Petalas and Russell Tovey

The Perimeter is proud to present My Reflection of You,
a new group exhibition featuring contemporary works
from two private collections. Alexander Petalas and
Russell Tovey have selected works that highlight common
themes and dialogues running through both of their
collections. This exhibition explores the symbiotic
nature of collecting: the ways in which an individual
informs and shapes their own personal collection and
how this in turn can create a wider dialogue with others.

WHITE COLUMNS

GROUP SHOW
LOOKING BACK / THE 12th WHITE COLUMNS ANNUAL
Selected by Mary Manning

“As the global pandemic raged on for another year
in 2021 I felt that I was still working with confusion
and some heartbreak, so the experience of getting to
go look at art with a purpose of sorts had a different,
more joyful register. I primarily used love as a guiding
metric to select these works, being aware of the messy
hard work that comes with love and the rigorous emotional
work that went into making these pieces.” – Mary Manning, 2022.

DES CHAMPS DE FRAISES POUR L’ÉTERNITÉ
January 22 – April 2, 2022

Curated by: Marc Bembekoff and It’s Our Playground
(Camille Le Houezec & Jocelyn Villemont)

Marc Bembekoff, the director of the art center contacted
It’s Our Playground in January 2020 for the first time,
willing them to take part in a project, designing the
scenography of an exhibition which would be a safe space,
a protecting bubble against worldwide political and social
crisis. That was right before the pandemic and all the
turmoil that had lasted for more than a year, which postponed
all the program… So, when early 2021, the show was once
again considered, all agreed to collaborate on that project,
co-curating it, selecting the artists together and re-thinking
the purpose of the show in this new context, quite conscious
that it would be included in a long list of “post-covid” shows
– a risk and a chance at the same time. A risk for it to be
perceived as another show acting as a second wind, but also a
chance to look at artistic practices in search of magic, of
liveness in our new reality.

MOONS AND ANGELS OVER THOMASTON

By: Christoper Crossman

August 10, 2021

On bright, spring evenings, while driving north on U.S Route 1,

just past Waldoboro, you will begin to see a full moon hanging

just over Thomaston, a sleepy river town of some two thousand

residents that was once home to deep-water ship masters and

China trade clippers and where their stately homes and civic

buildings linger in varied states of genteel dissolution. Now,

painted moons — emblems of a modern-day Brigadoon — are

seen in a series of paintings by Ann Craven, whose new gallery

has just opened in a beautifully renovated Catholic church in

Thomaston. There, Craven’s moons are accompanied by a choir

of night-enfolded apparitions, a group of “angels” by Reggie

Burrows Hodges.

70 MAINE ST, THOMASTON, ME

TWO-PERSON SHOW

KARMA

MOONS AND ANGELS

Ann Craven & Reggie Burrows Hodges

July 31 – September 19, 2021

Karma is pleased to present a two-person exhibition featuring

angel paintings by Reggie Burrows Hodges and moon paintings

by Ann Craven. The show is set in the former St James Catholic

church at 70 Main Street in Thomaston, Maine. The angels and moons

on display symbolically and literally explore the notion of light found

in darkness. Deep hues of black and midnight blue set the stage for

the heavenly icons, capturing them with a painterly effulgence—or

radiating glow. Appearing throughout the canon of art history, these

enduring celestial subjects have served as protectors and messengers.

Craven and Hodges create warm and inviting interpretations of these

guiding lights that allow the viewer to, in Hodges’s words, “offer up

and be offered back.”

in my heart of heart, a group exhibition of contemporary

paintings and textiles on view May 1-August 13, 2021,

through depictions of lovers and friends, familial exchanges,

moments of solitude, and even a cowboy and his pastel pink

unicorn. Heart of heart includes recent and new works created

ANN CRAVEN: ANIMALS BIRDS FLOWERS MOONS

By: David Rhodes

April 28, 2021

“Something seems to have changed between Ann Craven’s

last Karma exhibition in 2018 and Animals Birds Flowers Moons,

the current exhibition. Individual works now advance a particularly

estranging form of romanticism with even more boldness and

adventure than before. Together with this, Craven’s animal pantheon

has expanded to include bear cubs, peacocks, woodpeckers, and horses.

The paintings and watercolors here are all recent, so it is perhaps the

restrictive circumstances of pandemic life that resulted in a longing,

nostalgia, childhood memory: notional time travel rather than

geographic movement. The painterly devices—expressive, broad

brushstrokes, subtle blurring, radiant color—are fresh and vibrant.

This amounts to subversion, as the given imagery is so void of obvious

gravitas—the cute, amenable bear in a tree, the eager group of friendly

horses. It would be all very faux-naif if it weren’t for the painter’s clear

tradecraft. I think of the discrepancies found in Martin Kippenberger’s

work: his painterly ability, intelligence, and humor in deploying

“bad painting” and found imagery.”

REVIEWS

HANGING ON FOR DEAR LIFE: ANN CRAVEN AT KARMA

By: Zach Seeger

“It’s in the eyes,” a teacher told me about a Giacometti painting

that hung on the wall in his den. “The sitters stare blankly and persistent.

We stare back.” Ann Craven’s current exhibition “Animals Birds Flowers

Moons” at Karma, separated into three locations, is a series of paintings

of birds and other animals set against the moon that blearily share our

collective disbelief and exhausted gaze. Their eyes betray their awareness of

their privileged position as creatures that are free to move, travel, sit and do

nothing, hovering above a crumbling world. Craven masterfully accomplishes

this heightened aloofness not so much with the kitschy tropes of pre-teen

suburban mall posters as with the casual dispatch of sharp, luscious painting.

In insouciant calligraphic flourishes, her swooping brush strokes lather

the canvas, seducing the viewer. Colors ease unmediated from tube to

brush to canvas.

“Currently at Karma’s East Side space in New York, 

the gallery has brought forth a series of new works by

painter Ann Craven, titled Animals Birds Flowers Moons. 

Working between paint and watercolor, the artist’s new

series of pieces bring together the titular bodies in a series

woodpeckers, and horses as an exploration of graphical

nostalgia and its expressive capacity.

ANN CRAVEN: ANIMALS BIRDS FLOWERS MOONS

By: Elena Clavarino

April 2021

For the American artist Ann Craven, the moon is an ideal

subjectfor a painting. “It’s a variable that’s constant but changing …

perfect for my work.” Craven is fascinated with the cyclical

quality of life, with memory, time, and change. She paints in

bold strokes,the childlike simplicity of her subjects layered

with references to photographs, other paintings, and historical

works. Craven’spaintings are divided across Karma’s three spaces,

each accompanied by a monograph. The texts align with Craven’s

assorted animals, flowers, birds, and moons, images she “revisits”

over and over again.

THREE EXHIBITIONS TO SEE IN NEW YORK THIS WEEKEND

March 26, 2021

Karma has given all three of its locations—two galleries and a bookstore

in lower Manhattan—over to Ann Craven for her three part solo-show,

which arrives just in time for spring. As the city’s plants, animals, and

inhabitants emerge from what may have been the longest, loneliest

winter of our lives, we are greeted by this ebullient body of work.

Craven is known for her paintings of moons and birds, and here she

mines these motifs as well as dipping into an unapologetic nostalgia

for fantastical childhood musings, with 7ft-tall paintings of horses

galloping before flowers, glamorous peacocks, and bear cubs who

peer sweetly from tree branches. The compositions are repeated

exactly in multiple paintings throughout the three-venue exhibition,

as if each were a prayer. Craven’s belief in the power of beauty, and

the unique earnestness, skill, humour, and charm on display here,

prevent the works from delving into saccharine territory, instead

keeping them ever enticing.

Ann Craven – color me

“Each drawing is an original creation and conveys

a story, a wit, in a shared taste for humor, the absurd

and the imaginary. The educational value of coloring

is no longer to be demonstrated: by expressing their

free talent for color, children observe and become

familiar with the way a drawing is constructed.

These “color me” albums are part of the purest

tradition of the coloring book: small format (A5),

glossy lamination of the cover on card stock, clear

line drawing.”

painters and designers—the exhibition samples new
directions for the growth of the DMA’s collection.
The painters’ inventive treatments of organic forms
show contemporary approaches to landscapes and still
lifes. These forms resonate with the unique shapes
of the surrounding design works, from the experimental
and functional sculptures by Ron Arad and Misha Kahn
to the elegant and whimsical jewelry by Robert Baines,
Bruno Martinazzi, Jiro Kamata, and Kiff Slemmons.

REVIEWS

3 LOS ANGELES EXHIBITIONS EXPLORING THE NATURE OF THINGS

MATERIA MEDICA at FRANCOIS GHEBALY

By: Paul Laster

August 28, 2020
Presenting artworks that are about nature and
also derived from it, Materia Medica offers a
combination of pseudo-scientific and surreal pieces
to illustrate the perils of our exploitation of the
environment. Curated by multidisciplinary artist
Kelly Akashi, who poses the questions “What does
nature own?” and “What will be inherited when humans
are gone?” in her esoteric exhibition statement,
the show focuses on materials and working methods that
address our fragile relationship with the natural world.

HYPERALLERGIC

INTERVIEWS

ARTISTS QUARANTINE WITH THEIR COLLECTIONS

By: Stephen Maine

August 1, 2020

Avery Z. Nelson

Over the past four months I have returned to Craven’s painting

frequently. As I listened to the incessant sirens shriek death up

First Avenue in April, I found serenity, beauty, and decay in Craven’s

flower. As I marched in the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn

during the mayor’s bullshit curfew and police bulldozed into us,

arrested us, beat us, and continued to do their daily job of terrorizing

and murdering Black lives, I began to see the three flowers as a single

flower in motion, either bleeding down into the earth or floating up

into the sky — maybe both at once.

FOOD BANK FOR NEW YORK CITY: EMERGENCY BENEFIT AUCTION

ARTSY

April 24, 2020

We are delighted to present an auction to benefit Food Bank For New York City.

This online auction offers the opportunity to purchase works

donated by nearly 100 of today’s most exciting artists, representing

a wide range of practices, backgrounds, and experiences. The incredible

response from artists across all walks of life reflects a call for unity and

collective transformative action.

Some of the artists include:

Dana Schutz, Katherine Bernhardt, Ross Bleckner, Nicole Eisenman, Cecily Brown,

Peter Halley, Ann Craven, Lyle Ashton Harris, Keltie Ferris, James Siena,

Jeffrey Gibson, Cindy Ji Hye Kim, Felipe Baeza, Salman Toor, Devan Shimoyama,

Louis Fratino, Marilyn Minter, Alison Rossiter, Betty Tompkins, Didier William,

Jordan Kasey, Sanya Kantarovsky, Elinor Carucci, and many more.

Organized by artist Doron Langberg, facilitated by Yossi Milo Gallery, and powered

by Artsy, the auction will benefit Food Bank For New York City. As the city’s leading

hunger-relief organization, Food Bank provides emergency meals, fresh produce,

and household supplies for low-income New Yorkers, families with school-aged

children, seniors at high-risk of infection, and healthcare workers.

In this “new normal” of social distancing, shuttered businesses, lost wages, and

closed schools thousands more New Yorkers are facing food insecurity. “As artists,

we are uniquely positioned to leverage the power of our work and of our community

to help the ones most affected,” explains Langberg. “Putting together this auction

gave me a feeling of agency which so many of us need right now.”

Founded in 1983, the mission of Food Bank For New York City is to end hunger by

organizing food, information and support for community survival and dignity.

At least 1.4 million New Yorkers rely on its services, with a network of approximately

1,200 emergency and community food providers, including soup kitchens, food

pantries, shelters, low-income day care centers, as well as senior, youth and

rehabilitation centers.
