This event has ended.

Foley Gallery presents in the first annual Lower East Side Art Week. We will be featuring solo exhibitions by Canadian sculptor Cal Lane, Santa Rosa based collage artist Sherry Parker and Los Angeles based Brooks Salzwedel.

Cal Lane creates larger than life metal stand-alone sculptures that capture a delicacy and curious approach to gender roles and conceptual art.

Lane’s lace patterns, cut into harsh and often preternaturally large steel and iron structures, are sensual, alluring and deeply effeminate. Lane’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally including Australia, Belgium, Canada, England, France, and the USA.

Collage is an adventurous rush for Sherry Parker. Chance is her muse. Parker describes chance as “a pervasive force in the sequence of my life as an artist..” beginning with her unexpectedly intriguing involvement with Ray Johnson’s New York Correspondence School in the late 60’s through which she was introduced to the addictive magic of collage and collaboration.

The medium of collage excites Parker because of the ideas that flow from chance:
the serendipitous discovery of “found” materials, the random selection process, the fortuitous mistakes, the bringing together of disparate pieces to begin the formation of order out of chaos. Through collage, Sherry address the puzzle of life.

Her work reflects her playfully irreverent response to – or perhaps refuge from – the “furious folly” of these times. This can be seen in unexpected and nonsensical imagery, fifties iconography (my comfort years), deconstruction and humanization of machines, and in anthropomorphic hybrids. Her work is her way of softening the world around her and making her peace with it.

Brooks Salzwedel’s work focuses on natural and unnatural landscapes disconnected from their usual surroundings or places in time. Using a self-created process involving materials such as graphite, mylar and resin, tape, colored pencil, and ink, his work evokes feelings of desolation through haunted, dreamlike visions of otherworldly terrains.

Ancient trees, decaying flora, and icy mountains obscure long forgotten places and objects, at once familiar and unrecognizable, creating a space for rumination that challenges the relationship to their meaning.
