Opening Reception: August 1, 2015 5-7 pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents an exhibition new works by Polish -American artist Jerzy Kubina. The exhibition opens August 1 and runs through August 31.

“I do not limit myself to a classical representation of an image. I’m in constant search for new media which not only enriches the subject, but also inspires me to new forms of expression.
Visual appreciation is a creative exercise performed in a specified time, and a specific emotional state. The subject must be individual and unique.
I do not attempt to keep a tight rein on my art’s framework, but give myself the opportunity to individualize each of the works. My present concerns are of the sacred and the profane, always longing for harmony, accompanied by destruction and devastation, my inner world translates that pulse into color images. My new works are a continuation of the process of creating art for art’s sake.”

-Jerzy Kubina

Edward Avedisian Exhibition  | October 18 – November 18, 2014

Opening Reception: October 18, 2014 5-7 pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents an exhibition of works by American artist Edward Avedisian. The exhibition opens October 18 and runs through November 18.

Mr. Edward Avedisian was born in Lowell, Mass., in 1936 and studied art at the Boston Museum School. By the late 1950s he was living in New York, part of a generation of promising young painters that included Frank Stella, Larry Poons and Darby Bannard. From 1958 to 1963 Mr. Avedisian had six solo shows in New York galleries, including two at the Robert Elkon Gallery, where he continued to show almost every year until 1975.

In the mid-1970s Mr. Avedisian moved to Hudson and became less visible. His paintings soon began shifting toward representation; he took to calling his abstract paintings “a period style.” But he continued to be well served by his feeling for color, scale and surface. His landscapes described his surroundings in blunt, flat shapes and singing hues.

Avedisian’s work may be found in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York; the Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Denver Art Museum, Colorado; the Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan; the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase, New York; the Parrish Art Museum, Southampton, New York; the Portland Art Museum, Oregon; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the University of Michigan Museum of Art, Ann Arbor; the Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, North Carolina; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut.

Come and join us in the opening reception to see Edward Avedisian’s inspiring artwork, and discuss his unique technique, and approach to creativity in art at our gallery in Hudson NY.

Carole Hallé Exhibition | Wood and Graphite

September 5 – October 5, 2015

Opening Reception: September 5, 2014 5-7 pm

Hudson, NY: Roshkowska Galleries presents the first solo exhibition of French born, New York based artist Carole Hallé. The exhibition will include a collection of her woodcarvings as well as several of her large drawings.

Visual artist and musician Mark Safan writes about her work: “I have observed her singular vision to articulate the sensual forms that are so strikingly hers. What is notable in the large scale drawings is the process that brings them into being; an intuitive and experiential groping, exploring, defining, a total involvement that finally envelops the viewer. The large sculptural forms seem to have no beginning and no end. It is not the reality of the forms per se that is the subject but rather the persistent need to assert them. Interestingly, in her professional life, Carole has worked with architects to reproduce lost or damaged architectural elements. This is painstaking and exacting work. There is no room for error. This tendency, the need to get it right, can also be seen in her artwork. It is the combination of these dual approaches, intuitive and reality based, that gives her work a unique presence.”

Come and join us Saturday September 5th for the opening reception of Ms Hallé’s recent works and discuss her unique process and technique at our gallery in Hudson, New York.
