Lacey Fekishazy, Amy Feldman, Matthew Mahler will be showing their new paintings at ART 101 from June 2 through July 3.
“We are all exploring geometry in equally exciting but different ways.” (MM)
The exhibit highlights how three separate and entirely different paths converge onto a common ground.
Lacey Fekishazy is employed as a draughtsman/installer for Sol Lewitt. She has been in numerous shows in the New York area, during and prior to completing her MFA at Queens College, CUNY (BFA SUNY New Paltz; AAS Fashion Institute of Technology NY.)
“My work is the evidence of physically working through ideas and obsessive preoccupations… I deconstruct conventional practices and elevate the ‘commonplace.’”
Amy Feldman’s work has been seen in venues in New York, New Jersey, Chicago, LA, and Berlin. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from Rutgers. She has been awarded grants from The Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Yaddo, and Macdowell.
“Operating within Modernist scaffolding, my paintings address figure/ground relationships.”
Matthew Mahler completed his undergraduate work at Hofstra University where he earned a Fine Arts grant, two Fine Arts Painting awards, and a Fine Arts Sculpture award. His MFA was achieved at Queens College CUNY. Mahler has exhibited his work in New York City, Portland Maine, Iasi, Romania as well as in many parts of Long Island.
“Geometric forms create a resolve in a body of work, otherwise overrun by awkward spatial relationships, imperfect edges and skewed perspectives.”
