In response to the upheaval caused by the Coronavirus outbreak, Jason McCoy Gallery has hosted a weekly Drawing Challenge since April 8, 2020 that is open to all Artists. Each week, we share a sentence, poem, or song lyric that has been proposed through our extended circle of friends and followers, inviting artists to submit a unique visual response. We are thrilled to announce Jillian LaManna, Rebecca Clark, and Elisabeth Condon as the featured contestants of our Drawing Challenge II, which used an excerpt from Wisława Szymborska's (1923-2012) poem "Maps" as inspiration.
Casa Cor Miami Design Fair, December 2-21, 2019
Penthouse, 700 Brickell, Miami
MIAMI, FL- Eyes in the Canopy - Curated by Ibett Yanez del Castillo of Ground Control MIA
& Tyler Emerson Dorsch of Emerson-Dorsch Gallery, Miami.
Eyes in the Canopy presents a group of artists whose approach to environmental issues proposes a new conversation surrounding the intangible dilemma of climate change. Working across a diverse range of media, artists in the exhibition explore themes of landscape and the cultural intersection of aesthetics, architecture, and nature. Changes in urban planning, driven by economic growth, expansive populations, and city migration, have in recent years, aggressively removed nature from designs and urban planning.
The thought of a violent variation in our ecosystem due to climate change is real and yet is presented as myth, while we slowly begin to experience the effects brought on by global warming. Artists selected for Eyes in the Canopy explore the tangible immediacy of climate change as an effect of our urban planning, the lack of natural landscape in our designs, and how the absence of nature is conditioning social structures and behaviors on a global level. The exhibition explores such changes with artists asking these very questions.
We share the water, the sky, and the landscape. Artists in Eyes in the Canopy have expansive ideas of how we share the earth we live on. Their art provides unique insights on a contemporary approach to architectural environments — the works in the exhibition exemplify our struggle with a lack of nature in modern culture. These artists inform the myth of climate change while presenting the collective unconscious of a world that’s changing. Through their work, a universal fear of issues heard but not seen is showcased. The exhibition encourages communities to share ideas of natural resilience and bring forth unprecedented ideas for change.
The exhibition is organized on the occasion of Casa Cor 2019, a design fair in downtown Miami, located in the penthouse level of 700 Brickell Ave. The fair, curated by Lina Hargrett of The Empty Apartment, will open to the public on Dec 2nd, 2-8pm, and the presentation will be on view through Dec 21st (See the website for hours: http://www.casacormiami.com).

Graphicstudio was founded in 1968 as an experiment in art and education at the University of South Florida, Tampa. At Graphicstudio, research into art-making techniques works in tandem with new aesthetic expressions by leading and emerging artists. The constant push by collaborating artists and studio staff to create new possibilities for artistic practice is the backbone of the atelier, and the impetus that has kept it at the forefront of international fine art publishing.

The Painters and Sculptors Grant Program was established in 1993 to acknowledge painters and sculptors creating work of exceptional quality through unrestricted career support. The first year of grants was awarded in 1994 and the Foundation has funded individual artists annually since that time.
The Foundation currently awards $25,000 to twenty-five artists through a nomination process. Nominators from across the country are invited to recommend artists, at any stage in their career, who are currently under-recognized for their creative achievements, and whose practice would significantly benefit from the grant. In an anonymous process, a jury panel then selects the twenty-five awardees. Nominators and jurors include prominent visual artists, curators, and art educators who are dedicated to supporting artists.

The gallery is transformed into a flexible space designed by an architect and artist. Always in flux, the exhibition is home to a group show; a reference library based on the essay Botox Ethics, by artist and theorist, Katherine Behar; and to the second gathering of Paradise Commons, a loose group of artists and writers; a curator, a dancer and a librarian.

A timer will start the countdown for the performance. Each artist will be programmed to begin and end at a time designated through chance operations within the 120-minute interval. At times a poet will be reading while a sound artist is performing. A dancer will enter, perform and depart. Sounds will overlap. There will be silence. Every aspect of the performance will be unrehearsed, live, spontaneous, and uninterrupted. Audiences can come and go as the event clock ticks out of time.

This year, the space will feature Elisabeth Condon, Sue Havens and Kristen Schiele. “It’s sort of anti-collaboration,” Skiles says. “They don’t know who the other artists are going to be. The goal is to bring something together that can harmonize, but not so much that one person loses their identity. It should be a bit of a mystery, something that is revealed even to the artists.”

Platform 4, The Gallery (2014 - ) by Wang Xin
Presented by de Sarthe Gallery, Hong Kong, Armory Show, Pier 94
Wallpaper Dragon presents a single 129.54cm x 1005.84cm roll of watercolor paper undulating over the walls across the floor and exterior space of The Gallery. The scroll-like paper, literally supported by the Gallery walls, spills over and beyond them. Color and ink flow and merge together, containing imagery of goddesses and warriors with patterns from Condon's mother’s fabrics and wallpapers that further complicate the surface and unfolding of time.
The theme of the installation is freedom to re-imagine decor as the intersection between nature and culture. For an hour the Gallery contains a synthetic landscape transgressing the natural boundaries of its physical space.
The installation expands upon earlier site-specific installations made after Condon returned from China in 2014. Since then, her mother's vintage wallpapers and fabrics inspire her to incorporate the décor in her childhood home as a formative artistic influence. As a child Condon experienced the repeated patterns as confining, a trap. Now, setting the patterns and images free in a river of free-floating associations redefines the improvisational techniques of scroll painting in dimensional space.

Historic Orchard Street, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, was once a literal orchard and garden belonging to James De Lancey during the Revolutionary War. By the mid 1800s the property was divided up, making way for immigrant housing, pushcarts and storefront businesses. Gardens on Orchard looks back at the origins of the street as a productive outdoor space and captures the streets’ history, energy and spirit.
Gardens on Orchard at Lesley Heller brings viewers back in time to Orchard Street as a garden space, presenting a group show of garden and outdoor themed works spanning painting, sculpture and photography.

In her exhibition UNNATURAL LIFE, Elisabeth Condon’s luscious paintings layer vivid abstraction and decorative flowers and birds. These paintings seem at first to be pure pleasure, for they revel in color, paint and compositional complexity. Look longer and uneasiness blooms. The symbols depicted within the paintings bear heady and emotional references to feminism, environmental and national politics. Condon manages this with loaded symbols – bird and flower representations culled from decorative fabric patterns in her mother’s home – and by an extraordinary control over paint’s materiality and color and its emotional range. The symbol is a hook calling for a feminist reading of the history of decoration, especially in the United States, and a feminist critique of North American abstract expressionist painting by extension. Erica Ando writes in her essay about UNNATURAL LIFE: “Condon’s paintings permit birds, flowers and decoration to sit alongside expressions of angst and tensity, as well as beauty, as part of women’s, and human experience.”

There has been a recent movement back to the countryside in China, as well as a reconnecting with the agricultural landscape for food and clean air, as intellectuals, artists and the elite are seeking retreat from the ills of the industrialized Chinese cities. What are the ways in which we can engage, through design, sustainable solutions and hybrid interventions into this landscape?
