Opening Reception for the Artist Thursday September 15, 6-9pm
440 Gallery presents Tumbled Sky by Gail Flanery, an exhibition of mixed-media prints. Flanery’s signature imagery draws from nature, much of it is suggestive of landscape but the geography is rarely specific. The landscapes are invented, inverted or re-imagined and animated by lush color and an expansive sense of space. In this exhibition, Flanery channels nature’s turbulence as her gaze shifts upward, to the sky.
Flanery is a graduate of Cooper Union where she was influenced by the painter and colorist Wolf Kahn. She has worked with a number of master printers and presently works at the shop of Master Printer Kathy Caraccio. Flanery’s work is in dozens of private and corporate collections and in the permanent collection of the Jane Vorhees Zimmerli Art Museum. Flanery has exhibited extensively with several published reviews to her credit, including in The New York Times.
Tumbled Sky opens Thursday, September 15 at 440 Gallery, 440 Sixth Avenue in Brooklyn, and runs through Saturday, October 16, 2016. An artists reception will be from 6–8pm on Thursday September 15, 2016.
