Curators Lori Zimmer and Natalie Kates are pleased to present “Calm Before the Storm,” a two-person show by Logan Hicks and Beau Stanton, which opens October 17th from 6-9pm at the Highline Loft. Taking inspiration from nautical superstition, flood myths, classical paintings, life changing events and the modern issue of rising seas, the artists have created new paintings, multiples, and a site-specific installation of a reconstructed ship and captain’s study. A special print release party with 1xRun will take over the space on October 22nd. In honor of Halloween, the show will conclude with a costume party, “Sailors, Sirens and Sea Monsters”, in honor of maritime folklore on October 28th. The exhibition and installation will be set to an original score by Luv Jonez.

Logan Hicks’ interpretation of “Calm Before the Storm” will fuse the photorealistic stencil artist’s interest in nautical traditions with the implications surrounding the serenity felt before major life changing events. With a foot planted in acceptance of fate, Hicks’ new works will reflect both traditional imagery, such as his reinterpretation of The Execution of Lady Jane Grey, and modernity, such as the role of and reliance upon technology as our means of communication- which has created an impersonal barrier when receiving news both good and bad. For Hicks, the works in the exhibition will examine the driving force of fate, and the inability to alter momentum with paintings, aerosol on canvas, aerosol on panel and editions of aerosol on paper.

Through oil painting, sculptural works and multiples, Beau Stanton’s take on “Calm Before the Storm” meshes the artist’s long-time interest in nautical lore, relating the storied takes of deluge myths and divine retribution to the current concerns with global climate change and rising waters. Like Hicks, Stanton takes influence from classical painting and sculpture, weaving ancient superstitions with modern environmental realities.

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.
