Message in a Bottle

Cavalier Gallery presents, Message in a Bottle, a special exhibition guest curated by Lori Zimmer of Art Nerd New York.

This group show will be exhibited in our Nantucket gallery from July 3rd to July 21st, 2015, with an opening reception on Thursday, July 3rd from 5-7pm. Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Art Nerd, Lori Zimmer brings her curatorial eye to explore this romantic tradition of hoping for the sea and destiny to deliver a love letter to one’s beloved. Transforming part of the gallery into a maritime ship chandlery, visitors will view modern “messages in bottles,” created by contemporary artists in their unique styles. The show focuses on Brooklyn-based Beau Stanton and several of his contemporaries to bring this nostalgic activity to our age. A previous version of Message in a Bottle was presented at SCOPE Miami art fair to a captivated crowd. Each artist has created their own message in various mediums, just waiting for someone to let them out of their container. The whole exhibition is an intriguing experience, as we consider the messages and how they relate to our own emotions, whether they are bottled up inside or out in the open.  Beau Stanton is joined by Logan Hicks, Allison Sommers, Elizabeth Winnel, Jack Bratman, Jud Bergeron, Jon Burgerman, Vahge, Molly Crabapple, Ewelina Koszykowska, Debranne Cingari, Ofelia Marquez, and Shark Toof.

Please join me on Tuesday July 16th, 2013 at The Roger Smith Hotel to celebrate Jon Burgerman‘s awesome new black and white mural room off of Lily’s bar that will take over the space until September, curated” (whatever that means) by Danika Druttman and me. There will be wine provided by the hotel, good music, fun banter, art nerds, a piano for talented pianists (hehe), a beautiful rooftop bar that feels like the 1940s, stickers from Burgerman and MAYBE a performance by the artist and his Ukelele (maybe). Bring your friends, but try to RSVP if you can ddruttman@rogersmith.com.

George Hearts Maria at Heliumcowboy, Hamburg, Germany

September 1, 2012 — by lorizimmer

In 1785 Prince George of Wales fell in love with Maria Fitzherbert, a commoner. Because their love was forbidden, they each had miniatures of their eyes painted for one another, so that they could look deep into them always- without fear of being caught by the royal family. Although he officially married another, he was buried with his token of Maria around his neck. Eye miniatures, or Lover’s Eyes, stayed popular through Victorian times, before fading out of fashion.

On September 1st 2012, Art Nerd New York and Lori Zimmer present “George Hearts Maria,” a Victorian pop-up plucked out of history and taking root in Helium Cowboy’s summer group show. The parasitic gallery takes residence on the gallery floor, amidst the summer group show. Inside the appendage-gallery is a pristine Victorian sitting room, complete with a collection of eye miniatures.

“George Hearts Maria” asks contemporary artists to pay tribute to the star crossed lovers, and reinterpret the lost art historical tradition of eye miniatures, adding a modernist skew to the once romantic art movement. Featuring works by ALEX DIAMOND, ALLISON SOMMERS, BARNABY WHITFIELD, BEAU STANTON, BILLY, ELIZABETH WINNEL, FRED CARON, IAN KUALI’I, IAN LARSEN, JASON BOTKIN, JEAN LABOURDETTE/TURF1, JIM DORAN, JON BURGERMAN, JONATHAN GRASSI, JON TODD, MARNE LUCAS, MICHAEL MARARIAN, MOLLY CRABAPPLE, MY DOG SIGHS, NYUGEN SMITH, REBECCA REEVE, RICARDO CAVOLO, RUDY VIG, RYAN V. BRENNAN, SHARK TOOF, TRAVIS LOUIE, TRONG GIA NGUYEN AND ZAC BRAUN.

Limited edition print sets of select works, inside a custom screen printed box will be available from 1xRun.com, as well as eye miniature buttons will be given away to visitors to the gallery on opening night.
