David Konigsberg "Equilibria" - New Paintings

Saturday November 27, 4:00 PM - Sunday January 23

7 Fulling Lane Kent Barns Kent, CT

David Konigsberg "Equilibria" New Paintings
November 27 - January 23
Reception for the Artist: November 27th, 4 - 6 pm - Public Invited

The paintings in this exhibition represent three equal movements: figurative, architectural, floral. These three painting motifs are constants Konigsberg’s work spanning several decades of his studio practice and embody concepts important to him. Through his sustained engagement, Konigsberg explores and expands concepts of the physical body and the human condition, the grandness of mass and form, and the comfort of nature domesticated. Working with equal engagement and rigor each painting is a question and a response. Taken as a whole, the body of work in this exhibition suggests a personal rhythm - a way of fitting into the world writ large, and of quotidian life, with awe and humility in equal measures.

Gallery Hours: Kent, CT: Thursday - Saturday, 11:00 - 5:30 and Sunday 12:00 - 4:00 And by appointment

Final Exhibit at Ober Gallery: Lev Meshberg Paintings

Friday January 7 - Sunday January 30

Ober Gallery 4 N. Main Street Kent, CT

After 15 years, Rob Ober has decided to close his gallery to focus on his own art. Lev Meshberg paintings will be his final exhibition.

Rob said recently, "This was not an easy decision but it's the right one. I cannot juggle it all anymore! When I opened 15 years ago, I wanted to give my attention to Russian artists that I loved. I showed works by Malevich, Popova, Kabakov, Roginsky, Yankilevsky and many others. Three years after opening the gallery, my focus shifted to showcasing works by artists Peter Acheson, Karen LeSage, Katherine Bradford, Brandan Cass, Brian Belott, Lance De Lose Reyes, Pam Glick and Robert Nava and many more. To all the visitors, collectors and most importantly artists, thank you for letting me be a part of your life."
