Recommended: Opening This Friday in Williamsburg

Three exciting new exhibitions open this Friday in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  An intense showing at each gallery, each artist expands their respective traditions of artmaking.  Friday night is a not to miss evening of artgoing in Williamsburg.


Katie Shima at Devotion Gallery

Katie Shima: Living Machines at Devotion Gallery


Opening November 16th, 7-11


The Living Machines are a series of hand-drawn images in ink and graphite on vellum made using traditional architectural drafting techniques. The drawings look into the ways in which industrialized societies replace natural processes with artificial ones in order to maintain their standard of living, or ways in which they might do so in the future. Parts of these mechanical landscapes are drawn with technical accuracy, in section or elevation, like architectural documentation, but the hand-drawn, illustrative quality of the technique adds depth, nuance, and mood, helping to draw out the narratives of the allegorical machines.


Thomas Broadbent at Front Room Gallery

Thomas Broadbent: "Chronicle" at Front Room Gallery



Opening November 16th 7-9pm

Thomas Broadbent’s solo exhibition of paintings presents a series of composed situations that observe fashion and the utility of trends, from the relative meaning of dress, to the inference of status from leather bound books. Broadbent’s new watercolor paintings impeccably represent scenes of positioned components that relay metaphorically meaning through the association of objects within each new work.  Broadbent’s still lives have a timeless quality, seeming relating to the turn of the century at times. His paintings of shoes, cocktail gowns, pants, and moreover, books and ledgers often incorporate prosaic birds such as chickadees and pidgons. These situational compositions have an uncanny presence, that seems to exist somehow here and there, past present and future.
Yoon Lee at Pierogi Gallery
Yoon Lee "Road to Absolution" at Pierogi Gallery 
Opening November 16th, 7-9pm

Pierogi is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Yoon Lee. This exhibition consists of large-scale paintings, expansive both physically and visually, punctuated by smaller works that appear to be moments torn from some larger event, with the occasional rest stop in between. These new paintings operate at once at the macro and micro level. They suggest movement through deep space rather than through a particular space. They resemble explosions or points of origin more than whirlwinds of swirling movement through industrial environments. And, simultaneously, they imply temporal events of which the viewer alternately occupies the center point of origin, as in “Road to Absolution” and “More Than a Spoonful,” or is a spectator receiving the brunt of the effects, as in “Sirens.” In a single vertical painting, “Refusal (Rise Against the Current),” Yoon brings all visual forces at her disposal to create a vertiginous splash of defiance. Other paintings, such as “Avoidance” and “Rest Stop (Oasis)” deploy shadow and double vision effects to offer momentary pauses, points of reflection and respite.
