CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS



                          



Grand Gallery 
Joseph Fioretti

September 30 - October 25

“From the moment a man named Fioretti walked into my class at The Art Students League, it has been a learning experience for both of us. A truly great work of art expresses something that cannot be described in words. Fioretti’s images must be seen. Each is startling. Some are shocking, The Self Portraits are soul searching. The portraits are honest and caring. The still lives are elegant. All are unforgettable. Fioretti has the eye of a true artist.” (Sherry Camhy) 
     Performer, director, producer and artist Joseph “Feury” Fioretti is the recipient of an Oscar (Down and Out in America, 1968) four Emmys and a Peabody Award. He has been married to legendary actress and director Lee Grant for over 50 years. Fioretti began taking up painting seriously in 2012 studying at The Art Students League and setting up a studio in Tribeca. He has exhibited at the League and other Manhattan venues and his work can be found in the collections of Michael Douglas, Alan Alda and Joy Behar among others.

Gregg Gallery
Babette Bloch: REFLECTION AND REGENERATION

September 30 - October 25


Babette Bloch is a pioneer in the use of laser-cut and water-jet stainless steel to create evocative works of art. Her sculptures explore form and the interplay between object and light, reflect their environments, expanding the ways in which stainless steel is used in contemporary art. Bloch received both classical and modern training, at the University of California, Davis including study with legendary artists Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson, and Manuel Neri. Her personal style embraces her eclectic tastes, her sometimes-whimsical visions, her pleasure in aesthetics, and her technical curiosity.   
     Bloch’s practice includes site-specific one-of-a-kind public artworks and limited-edition work.  Drawing on several traditions in American art, she creates works that touch on Modernist abstraction, the cut outs and collage found in Pop art, and the long-standing practice of story-telling in art. 





Marquis Gallery
Aaron Miller

September 30 - October 25


Artist Statement:
In this series of work, I am looking at the historical power of luxury.  These works depict fragments of luxury objects such as furniture; these have been deconstructed, destroying their functionality and re-making them into art objects. I have focused my observation on the part of a chair or couch that makes contact with the human body. These tufted surfaces and lavish upholstery serve as visual representations of class. Historically these textured design elements portrayed ultimate luxury and quality in furniture. I am undermining that portrayal of quality by using the fabric as a painting substrate, which ultimately serves no practical function. That is not to say that aesthetic function is useless- just that you cannot sit on it in this case. As a furniture maker, I find focusing on these surfaces cathartic because of their lack of usefulness and their focus on pure visual experience.

Trask Gallery
Women and Photography

September 30 - October 25

Since its inception, The National Arts Club has admitted women on a full and equal basis establishing a long history of exclusivity through inclusivity. “Women and Photography” pays tribute to Spencer Trask and co-founders who recognized and celebrated the contributions of female artists. This exhibition showcases a range of subject and form to challenge the notion that women in photography have a singular vision. The new voices and pioneering icons represented include Lisette Model, Marjan Teeuwen, Brea Souders, Trine Søndergaard, Fatemeh Baigmoradi, Helen Levitt, Yoko Ikeda, Simone Rosenbauer, and Marcia Resnick.





Grand Gallery 
Women Out of Doors

October 28 - January 3

The three month festival “Multiple Perspectives: Women in the Arts” comes to an impressive conclusion with a special exhibition celebrating women artists and the art of landscape painting. The contemporary artists included all have a highly personal dialogue with the environment, an ardent response to nature, and have found in nature’s creative purpose elements of structure, invention and expression.





Gregg Gallery
The 2019 NAC Drawing Invitational 

October 28 - January 3


The 2019 NAC Drawing Invitational pairs two celebrated New York artists, Barbara Nessim and Tara Geer. Nessim, celebrated for her gifts as a colorist reveals a celebratory world sparked by her joie de vivre. Geer, in contrast, creates large abstracts in black, white, and grey based on the close observation of insignificant details of her everyday surroundings. 





Marquis Gallery
Discovery and Restoration: Theodore Conrath

October 28 - January 3


The Archives Council is pleased to sponsor this special exhibition of work by Theodore Conrath, a National Arts Club Member from 1947-1954. Although Conrath is represented in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum, his often traumatic life caused him to fall into obscurity. Thanks to writer Jared Beasley, who discovered a cache of Conrath’s work in a Tarrytown thrift shop, we can now restore Theodore Conrath to the NAC legacy.





Trask Gallery
