"Genderful"

Opening Reception: Tuesday February 4th, 6-8pm



WOMEN BREAKING BARRIERS… GENDER BREAKING BARRIERS.
“I’m not a feminist,” says Pryor Callaway, which may come as a surprise to anyone whose first brush
with the visual artist’s work is “Genderful,” set to open at the Jadite Gallery in Midtown Manhattan
on February 4th. The evocative sculptures displayed in the gallery represent the influence of the strong
women in her adult life and a look back to her childhood in the Deep South and penchant for playing
with the boys. She remarks, “some people don’t see race or color as a kid. I didn’t see gender.”
Mannequins, which Callaway has transformed into provocative, challenging, sexual and courageous
sculptures, are the visual voices in the show. They represent her point of view that the task at hand
in our day and time isn’t about women breaking barriers but about any gender breaking through
preconceptions that do not allow authenticity and resonance. In this vein, the show encourages
an exploration of the feminine merging with the masculine through a transfiguration of genitalia to
personify braveness, freedom and identity.
Pryor Callaway, born and raised in Mississipi, has lived and worked as an artist in New York.
Her work has been shown at Art Basel Miami, Times Square, a solo show in Noho, Boffo Showhouse
in the Lower East Side, and WeiMit Gallery. Her work has been published in contemporary art books
and print and online magazines.
Jadite Galleries, established in 1985 contributes to the ever-changing contemporary
art scene in New York. Exhibitions cover the spectrum of art form created by a myriad
of talented artists from the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

South Pacific with the Marines during World War II. This is just the beginning of a journey that leads him to be one of the most

recognized photographers of our time. 40 years he worked and documented people and events for The New York Times. Now

retired at age 85 he resides near Los Angeles. Vintage Boenzi is a retrospective solo show at Jadite Galleries. The body of work

brings the unforgettable moments of real life from celebrities — Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra, Beth Davis, to Marcel Marceau,

Jack Nicholson, Mayor Ed Koch, from historical moments and events to the enjoyable pictures of street kids.


November 5-27
Eleanor Gilpatrick

HERE AND THERE

Opening Reception: Tuesday, November 6th, 6-9pm

Eleanor Gilpatrick’s paintings are beautifully executed, sophisticated works of contemporary realism. An accomplished colorist, she has her own take on content and subject matter; above all, her intense energy shows through.

Despite commercial pressures, Gilpatrick refuses to make reproductions of her work, a policy greatly appreciated by her collectors. Here are works for the home, the office, or for display in other settings. Gilpatrick offers a varied portfolio of landscapes of the United States, Norway, Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, and her home in New York City, as well as nebulae, still lifes, and portraits.

People concerned about the human face of war will want to see her “In The World” series, which contrasts images based on press photos of Iraq and Afghanistan with her own American scenes.

Martin Cohen

Jonathan works primarily in the medium of pen and ink drawing and is also a painter and photographer. He discovered his penchant for drawing when he was 10 years of age and studied art during elementary and high school. He holds a BFA in Illustration from SUNY Buffalo where he was mentored by noted illustrator Alan E. Cober, who encouraged Jon to “journal” his experiences through sketching. Jon applied this concept and eventually found a niche in drawing musicians in live performance at jazz venues around New York City and in Chicago, New Orleans, and Paris. He has become part of the fabric of the New York City jazz scene and counts a number of accomplished musicians among his friends. Jon was the subject of a profile in 

Mann About Town

magazine. His work was featured in a two-person show at Fountain Gallery and in a three-person show at Gallery New World Stages. Jon’s jazz drawings are frequently displayed at Jazz Gallery, and he is preparing an exhibit to be presented at Zinc Bar.

Martin incorporates mixed media, including photographic cutouts and found objects, into his abstract expressionist oil paintings and paper pieces, to introduce a textural quality and to explore elements of popular culture. Martin received a BFA degree from SUNY Purchase and an MFA from Carnegie Mellon, where he studied with renowned artist Sam Gilliam. He has had one-man shows at Vivian Horan Fine Art, Cooper Union, and Gallery New World Stages. His pieces were featured in a two-person exhibit at the corporate headquarters of the Estée Lauder Companies Inc. in New York City and in a group show at the Laurie M. Tisch Gallery at the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan. Martin has exhibited at Fountain Gallery in solo and group shows including: Wishful, Sinful, Wicked You; Doors of Expression; Body Language; and Collaged Realities. His work was shown in an exhibition at the Education and Research Center of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). His pieces have been acquired by corporate patrons such as the Estée Lauder Companies Inc., Eli Lilly and Company, and Citi. Martin was the subject of a profile in Mann About Town magazine. He is a 2012 winner of the prestigious Wynn Newhouse Awards, a program that provides grants to artists of excellence who happen to have disabilities.

Antonella Sissa

"When I create I reach a state of pure solitude, undertaking an inner journey, that allows me to express myself and make me feel alive and confident to explore every nook and cranny of my memory, fully drawing from the well of life.

I seek in my experience, to cleanse the pangs of life and convey positive feelings, which, I hope, are beneficial to the spirit of the observer. Once this creative purification process is complete, the observer is free to read my works and find these positive messages.

Pristine canvas on the floor of my studio call to me and ask to be covered in colour. This dialogue turns into an inner journey of reflection on existence and the world: an existence that floats on the waves of an uncertain future, but hopefully sails - following distant stars - towards safe havens; a world often unjust, populated by hypocrisy, pride, superficiality. A world I wish could be inhabited  by worthy people.

I begin by laying primary colors, working the canvas with my bare hands, creating a basis for an intricate forest of signs. Myriad twirls of traces, of arms, of outstretched hands struggling to break free:  they accompany me in search of freedom by pointing out possible mysterious routes as maps for safer exits from the labyrinth of our lives, a maze of streets, all free of obstruction, which lead to light at the end of the tunnel”
