Pierogi is a Williamsburg, Brooklyn art gallery, and one of its longest-running traditions turns 20 this week: Brooklyn Gravity Racers.
There’s no indication that Front Room Gallery’s Constructing Abstraction exhibition was meant to be an optical vortex of sorts but it certainly makes for a jostling viewing experience that feels like a temperature check for the power of pattern and color in contemporary abstraction.
What can contemporary abstract painting tell us about the medium today, and why does it continue to stir the soul? To answer these questions, artist Kara Rooney, the curator of Material Tak at Panepinto Galleries, selected five painters who range in age, professional experience and formal approach. Artists include Mark Dagely, Kati Vilim, Jsun Laliberte, Peter Fox and Anne Sherwood Pundyk.
