Introduction for Karen

I would like you all to close you eyes and imagine for a moment that you are looking at a painting that employs one-point perspective. Perhaps Masaccio’s “Holy Trinity”, DaVinci’s “Last Supper”, or van Gogh’s “Bedroom in Arles” comes into view. Now imagine the whole room, all of us, standing in front of one of these works and that technique imparts a performative power beyond simply creating illusionistic recessional space. It suggests unity, implying that something can bring us all together--an unusual idea in an overheated world rife with a warring factions, it-came to-me-in-a-dream-conspiracies, and willful absurdities meant to game the news cycle.

Albeit aspirational, I am suggesting that art can still evince an earnest and selfless expression and a reach towards perfection that can pull us into its space regardless of any preexisting conditions, including contempt.

I get that this is a tall order which is why I don’t think this level of production is isolate; I believe it comes into being in dialog with other artists, critics, and curators. Hence why Artists Equity exists, why we are here tonight and why we are honoring Karen Wilkin.

Founded in 1947 by a diverse group of American artists banding together, post WPA, to fend for themselves and their fledgling colleagues, New York Artists Equity Association (NYAE) forges on as an inclusive community for aspirant artists and makers, particularly those from underserved groups, seeking access to the greater art ecosystem. “1947: Creating an American Scene” pays tribute to NYAE’s forerunners, some famous, others lesser known, who had the radical foresight to establish an openly diverse aritsts association accessible to women, people of color, recent immigrants, and the LGBTQ+ community. “1947” will showcase works by founding NYAE members including Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden, Reginald Marsh, Louise Nevelson and Yasuo Kuniyoshi, the latter a Japanese immigrant who was the association’s first president. A preview sample of “1947” works will be displayed at the Salmagundi fundraising event and the full exhibition will run through the month of December at Equity Gallery. In addition to these historical works, the fundraising event will offer a sale of monotypes created and donated by current NYAE artist members. Karen Wilkin will be the fundraiser’s honored guest. Wilkin is a New York–based independent curator and art critic specializing in 20th-century modernism.

For most visual artists, the bulk of time they spend creating work is alone in the studio. A studio can be a sanctuary, a second home, a vessel of inspiration. But a studio practice can also be very isolating. How can an artist know if what they are creating is communicating what's intended? How does the work resonate with the viewer? Artists are charged with not only the difficult work of transforming inspiration into expression, but also providing context for that expression. It can be challenging for some artists to explain their practice.

transcender was created in 2017 in Bushwick to help artists fill this void. Feeling support from a community of like-minded creators have helped move a practice forward, inspire new thinking, and open doors to new methods of presentation. transcender presentations have assisted presenters polish their descriptive skills for the benefit of viewers/collectors/curators, and are inspirational for the audience as well. transcender sessions fostered a nurturing environment, sorely missed since the sessions went dark in 2020.

Participating in transcender, presenting or attending, is free of charge. Every session will include roughly a half-dozen artists, each of whom will have 9 minutes to present (up to)10 images. The presenter can decide what kind of feedback they'd like to receive from attendees. Digital images will be projected for the audience. Sharilyn Neidhardt, a co-founder of transcender, will return to facilitate the first two sessions at Equity Gallery.

Wed. Oct. 18th and Wed. Nov. 15th, 7 :00 - 8:30 PM

Post-holiday sessions will be announced at a later date

How to apply:

Interested participants need to send an email with a single paragraph artist statement and five to seven images to [email protected] with the subject line “transcender application”. At this time we are not supporting video or musical accompaniment.



Oct. 18th Session applications are due EOD Mon. Oct 9th.

Nov. 15th Session applications are due EOD Mon. Oct 30th



One application per artist. There are no fees and all are invited to participate, however Artist Equity Members will receive priority consideration.
