Final Weekend for Brooklyn Color/Form, a Pop-up Exhibition of Brooklyn Artists in a Unique Home for Sale in Greenwich’s Bucolic Back Country

Brooklyn, NY – A diverse array of artwork by six Brooklyn-based artists, including Ella Yang, will be on display and open to the public one last weekend at a property which, since its origins, has been destined to showcase contemporary art.

Greenwich country homeDistinguished by clean lines, soaring ceilings and gleaming white walls, the flowing spaces of this Greenwich country home call out for high impact artwork. The paintings, photography and sculptures were chosen for their emphasis on color and/or form, and specifically for how they refer to and complement the main public rooms of 17 Heronvue Road in Greenwich, CT. Brooklyn Color/Form, presented by Heather Platt, independent sales associate of Sotheby’s International Realty, will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM – 5 PM. The artwork is available for purchase.

This exhibition is a natural extension of the house’s eclectic history. The original owner, Marius de Zayas, an early proponent of Modernist Art, and his wife displayed their collection of works by Picasso, Braque, Cézanne, van Gogh, Brancusi and other modern artists on these same walls. Perhaps this body of contemporary artwork may well be imagined as the collection of a long-lost descendent of de Zayas. Fred Bendheim’s abstract “shaped paintings” on cutout wood reflect the lines and quirky angles of the interior while adding bursts of intense hues. Similarly colorful oil paintings by Janet Pedersen bring light and energy into the otherwise quiet spaces, reminders of life back in the city. In contrast, Ella Yang’s oil paintings cast warm, richly hued tones on peaceful landscape and city views. Her paintings are complemented by the contemplative, almost abstract photographs of swirling water by Amy Williams, a nod to the beautiful Wooley Pond on the property. Using transparent layers of color and shapes, Amy Weil’s abstract encaustic paintings explore the cycles of nature with a gentle, meditative focus. The free-standing steel and bronze sculptures by Nancy Steinson, with their solid, curved and smooth shapes evoke a monolithic strength, but with organic grace not unlike that of the house.
