November Exhibit

From November 10th to December 1st, Miguel Trelles will be displaying his paintings. The reception will be November 10th from 6-8.

Rather than pursuing radical innovations, Miguel Trelles favors revolutionary archaism in his new Zen con Son series of works.  Personally meaningful references from Chinese dynastic painting as well as an increasing number of pre-Columbian motifs are “telescoped” into colorful new compositions.  By delving into the Pre-Columbian heritage while respectfully approaching Chinese sources via the chino-latino aesthetic this recent series broadens our contemporary sensibility and continues Trelles exploration of a Pan-American suma.

Miguel Trelles is a visual artist who divides his time between New Haven and New York City.  Trelles’ chino-latino painting series derives inspiration from classic Chinese painting along with Pre-Columbian and Latin American imagery.

An adjunct professor at various colleges in and out of New York, Trelles has also taught at Southern Connecticut State University.  He holds a B.A. in Art History and Studio Art at Brown University and an M.F.A. (1995) from Hunter College.

The work of Miguel Trelles has been exhibited in Rio de Janeiro, Lima, San Juan, Santo Domingo, Havana, Tegucigalpa, Buenos Aires, and Paris, among others.  Trelles’ paintings have been acquired by several permanent collections such as those in El Museo del Barrio and Deutsche Bank in New York, the Fundacion Gabarron in Valladolid, El Museo de Arte de Ponce and the Institue of Puerto Rican Culture in Puerto Rico.

January Exhibit

Jay Rosenblum

American painter (1933-1989)

He is well-known for his stripe motifs. He used a technique that he dubbed “free association color development.” The prints we will be exhibiting showcase his love of bright colors and the abstract.

David Roth

American artist born in 1942.

He worked with strings to create canvas- like cloth pieces. In order to map these out he uses graph paper and a mathematical sense to use the 6 primary and secondary colors as well as black, white, and grey to create balance in each piece. We will be showing several of these paintings on graph paper, each its own geometric fueled piece.

He was one of the leaders in the development of digital printmaking. He is constantly coming up with new ways of creating art, and is best know for his hand made abstractions.

Marcella Casal

"Painting for me is a dynamic way of reflecting." M.C.

Marcella Casal paints reflections looking for answers to complex situations and like everything in life, there is not only one. That is why her works, always thought of in modules, have a game that makes them an open work, where one of the answers has the viewer when it comes to ordering its composition.

Italian-Argentinian artist. She lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She started exhibiting in 2013 and received the First Prize of Artistic Creation of the University of Belgrano 2014.

John Wesley

American Artist born in 1928.

His works have been described as pop art and minimalist, but Wesley rejects both to different extents. He uses newspapers and magazines for inspiration and often times to shape his figures. These figures get abstracted in his artistic process.
