poster for Charleen Kavleski "Installation of Acrylic - Shaped Canvas Constructions"

This event has ended.

This exhibition will be installations of acrylic-shaped canvas constructions by Charleen Kavleski, who has been with the gallery since 1984. A S.U.N.Y. New Paltz graduate, she began her art career as a Conceptual artist in 1970. Her work evolved to incorporate interrelated systems which gradually provided her with source material for sensuous physical objects.

The modular work of her stonemason father and quilt-making grandmothers has influenced her work. The (congruent) isosceles right triangle used by the artist for this body of work is called a “half square” in quilt-making. An arrangement of four such triangles is used to make a three dimensional maquette which is used as a model for each of the installations. When rotated, the unflexing sculpted model provides views, which with lighting, foreshortening, overlapping, concealing and revealing guide the artist in making the illusionistic, flat acrylic- shaped canvas constructions used in the installations.

Mrs. Kavleski has been an exhibiting member of the National Association of Women Artists since 1992 and has been included in “Who’s Who in American Art” since 1995. Her work (in more than 160 group and juried shows) has been selected by museum curators, art critics, gallery owners and art historians for display in galleries and museums throughout the United States.
