We start with short, dynamic poses of 60 seconds and build up to long, detailed poses of 20 minutes. Seats are available 360° around the model on a first come-first serve basis.

everything bagel at Gitler &_____

Gitler &_____ is pleased to present Damien Hoar de Galvan: everything bagel. In his second solo show with the gallery, the artist introduces a series of new small and large mixed-media sculpture as well as a selection of new drawings.

Constructed primarily from found wood pieces bound together with paint and glue, Hoar de Galvan’s subject matter is his process; his objects are the result of a journey wherein he navigates whatever dimensions the media allows, resulting in a tenuous balance. In response to the limitations reclaimed

media poses, Hoar de Galvan relishes the freedom of creation, evidenced by his treatment of each piece as a composition of navigable planes, and the relationships he forges between color and line and the gradations therein, however subtle or grounded.

An open-endedness of form prevails within the finite boundaries the artist creates; intersections are stacked upon one another, deviating course as the materials dictate, and yielding myriad geometric anomalies – straight and sinuous lines, arcs, and bands of color are all firmly bound, creating the veins of Hoar de Galvan’s architectural-cum-biomorphic forms.

Damien Hoar de Galvan (b.1979, Northampton, MA) lives and works in Boston. After studying behavioral science as an undergraduate he decided to take a different path as an artist. He completed the post-baccalaureate program at SMFA in 2008. Recently Hoar de Galvan has exhibited at VOLTA NY, BBQLA (LA) the Boston Center for the Arts, Carroll and Sons (Boston), and Studio E Gallery (Seattle), among others.

UpTown Artists: Repetition|Singularity at Gitler and ______Gallery

Coronado Print Studio is a collaborative print project located in El Barrio, East Harlem, New York City.  This exhibition features recently published selections by artists who live and work uptown.  In contrast to the replicable nature of the print-based process, each artist is also represented by instances of their non print-based work.

Coronado and Kioti (via Coronado Print Studio) aim to provide varied points of view, establishing a dynamic transcultural dialogue presented by a diverse coalition of artists.  Together these artists create a collective action against marginalization characterised by works dealing with issues of race, gender, immigration and that which challenges the status quo.

Through their exploration of the current socio-political environment, these artists craft a map for navigating a more integrated and equitable society.
