October 4 – November 30, 2013
PHILADELPHIA- In the main space, Wexler Gallery is proud to present new works by German-born designer Timothy Schreiber and California based painter Jenny E. Balisle. The show will run from October 4th through November 30th, 2013. An opening reception will take place on First Friday, October 4th from 5 – 8pm.
Jenny E. Balisle’s abstract paintings are conceptually linked to the artist’s interest in dichotomous relationships, exploring connections between the simple and complex; beautiful and grotesque; micro and macro; natural and man-made. This interest in opposing forces also correlates to her process, as she works ambidextrously, “engaging both hands in an attempt to unify the obsessive and intentional marks made by her right hand with the open and lyrical tendencies of her left.” Topographical in nature, Balisle’s richly textured surfaces are created by layering multiple solvents and mediums, which vary in opacity and consistency. With a process inspired by “the progression from disorientation to clarity,” the artist aims to explore and alter the line while mimicking visual occurrences in the natural world. Read More …
This year, our booth will feature a present-day homage to the rich life and prolific work of contemporary glass master William Morris. Spawned by a voracious return to the studio since retiring in 2007, Morris returns to his seminal installation, Mazorca. With a fresh eye and perspective, William Morris has fashioned 13 unique, collectible versions in never seen before compositions. These exclusive works will be introduced for the first time at Wexler Gallery / SOFA Chicago.

PHILADELPHIA- Wexler Gallery will feature an exhibition of new works, entitled Shifting Scale, by Rhode Island based glass artist Daniel Clayman. The show will run from May 3rd through June 30th. An Opening Reception will take place on First Friday, May 3rd from 5 – 8pm.
Daniel Clayman utilizes a vocabulary of simple forms and muted colors to create architectural glass sculptures. Shifting Scale will feature a selection of new works by the artist, which explore a variation of proportion, ranging from small to large scale. Although minimalist in aesthetic, Clayman’s pieces are created using a labor-intensive casting method. This process allows for his medium to take on a foggy and textured quality with a sense of depth, while still maintaining its translucency. The artist carefully uses light and shadow to accentuate subtle details in the glass, creating the illusion of mass in forms that are often hollow, describing volume in space.

Over the past 25 years, Mark Bennion has developed a unique painting process, which he likens to “Fresco,” using oil, plaster, and paper on a panel or canvas.

Evolving over time, this process was adopted and developed by many cultures around the world, from Ancient Greece to the Italian Renaissance.
