Concurrent with the exhibition at the main gallery, Nicelle Beauchene presents 39 Bowls at the gallery’s project space Third Floor.

39 Bowls features thirty-nine hand thrown and glazed bowls staged groupings throughout Third Floor’s living room. For this new series, Sherman focused on the traditional stemmed or standing bowl form, reminiscent of the altar bowls used during the Ming dynasty (ca. 14-17th century China) for ceremonial or ritualistic purposes. Each bowl—unique in size and design—emblematizes the artist’s glazing techniques and incised decorations. Sherman’s vibrant colors and playful motifs (eyes, trees, symbols, and anthropomorphized animals) tell open-ended stories on the interior surfaces of each bowl. Several of the artist’s hand painted ceramic pictures with ceramic frames also hang throughout the apartment.

Bruce M. Sherman lives and works in New York. He has held solo exhibitions at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York; White Columns, New York; South Willard, Los Angeles; Kaufmann Repetto, Milan; and Sorry We’re Closed, Brussels (two person). Sherman has been included in group exhibitions at Aldrich Contemporary, Ridgefield, CT; The Power Station, Dallas, TX; Marianne Boesky Gallery, Brennan and Griffin, Front Desk Apparatus, and Regina Rex, New York, NY; Cooper Cole, Toronto, ON; Adams and Ollman, Portland, OR; Museo Regional Michoacano, Morelia, Mexico; Thomas Duncan Gallery and The Pit, Los Angeles, CA; among others. Work by Sherman is currently included in Object & Thing presented at the Independent Art Fair.
