Last chance to see Anne-Davnes Elser: Second Birth, on view at the gallery through Friday!
Founded in forms of the body, the paintings by Georgia-based Anne-Davnes navigate between physical and spiritual being, exploring experiences of loss, pain, and hope. The layers built into her surfaces create a complicated history for each painting. Always searching for balance, the artist juxtaposes soft organic elements with sharper structures and lines, utilizing paint to consider seemingly opposing forces.
Anne-Davnes Elser: Second Birth closes June 16.

In Lynne Drexler’s later years on Monhegan Island she found inspiration in ordinary subjects in the world around her. Paintings such as Again Harmony (1995) evoke the joy of experiencing wonder at home. Utilizing her signature patterned and broken brushstrokes, these later works playfully intertwine the natural world with elements of Drexler’s everyday life on the island.
Lynne Drexler: The Monhegan Island Years is in view through July 28.

“The beautiful tapestries in churches were sewn by women, mostly nuns. The lace for the priests' vestments were tatted by nuns. Women worked with their hands to create beautiful things for the eyes to feast on, yet we do not know any of their names . . . If I use paint instead of thread, will these pieces be remembered? Will they be honored? The needlework - crocheting, knitting, lace making - by all the unknown women who have come before me, needs to be honored. I honor you, and you, and you, and you, and you and you, und so weiter.”
— Pat Lasch, 2023, on her Women's Work series
Pat Lasch: The Legend of Pope Joan features the artist’s most recent work and is on view through April 28.

Join us tomorrow from 5 to 7pm for the opening reception of Pat Lasch: The Legend of Pope Joan.
This is the artist’s fourth exhibition at the gallery and will feature her most recent work. Lasch’s Pope Joan series explores the medieval legend of a female pope through sumptuous attire created primarily with acrylic paint. Also on view will be acrylic and eggshell panels that incorporate the language of crochet and a beaded hairwork installation.
Lasch's current practice continues to draw on her substantial body of groundbreaking feminist work, which examines the social systems and rituals that underpin modern society.

“Crockett’s vocabularies, ranging from solid to porous to semitransparent, have their own distinct material presence, which she never calls attention to. These paintings are to be looked at, savored, and reflected upon.” -John Yau, 2017 review in Hyperallergic

“ … it wasn't quite mapped out for me. The road wasn't even paved ... I always worked with my hands. I grabbed everything that was anything, and was able to turn it into things ... The one thing about art is there is no end to it ... You reach your goal and you are beat and exhausted, but if you just look into the horizon, there is never enough time in the day to continue. “ (Frank Diaz Escalet, Interview in the Boston Globe, 1996)

Frank Diaz Escalet’s painting The Royal Roost 1940s (1989) depicts New York City's first bebop club in its heyday.
Escalet's love of jazz was fostered while living in New York during the 1950s and 60s. After a long day of working in "The House of Escalet," his leather goods shop in Greenwich Village, Escalet would visit jazz clubs to unwind and relax. His enthusiasm for the genre was reaffirmed when he turned to art in the mid-1970s. In both his leatherworks and paintings, Escalet selected subjects from across the history of 20th century jazz such as Bessie Smith, Lester Young, and Thelonious Monk.
Frank Diaz Escalet: Sing Me the Blues is on view through June 24, 2022.

Joseph Stella beckons us to take a bite out of life with his gouache of “Tropical Fruits.” These jewel-toned offerings, spot lit like actors on a dark stage, seem to want to leap from paper to palate. The technique recalls luminous stained-glass windows that inspired Stella’s imagination from childhood onward. Come visit our current show “Art Gems” to see the performance live!

Once an art gem, always an art gem!
This jewel-sized panel by Stuart Davis shows the artist's newly-developed approach of explosive color, playful forms, and boundless energy. Even legendary art dealer Edith Halpert couldn’t resist the painting’s charms. She highlighted it on the announcement for The Downtown Gallery’s 1953 holiday exhibition, “Art Gems for Christmas.” In early March, we'll take its sunny presence as a harbinger of spring.

We are pleased to announce that Debra G. Wieder has joined Meredith Ward Fine Art as Director.
Debra comes to Meredith Ward Fine Art with a wealth of knowledge in American Art and experience in gallery management. She previously served as the Associate Director of American Paintings and Sculpture at Hirschl & Adler Galleries, where she curated gallery exhibitions, oversaw advertising, and managed gallery development programs. In her forward-facing role, Debra worked closely with museums and private clients to guide them in building important collections of American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts. She brings to the position an extensive knowledge of 18th, 19th, and 20th-century American art developed over thirty years in the art world.
Debra is passionate about pairing the right painting with the right collection. She is spearheading several upcoming exhibitions that build on the gallery’s program of American modernism and abstraction, and she looks forward to expanding the gallery's offerings of American art. Debra shares the gallery’s longstanding commitment to championing artists who have been overlooked by history.
We are delighted to welcome Debra to the Meredith Ward Fine Art team.
