(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Works by Don Voisine, Robert Palumbo, and Lisa Ivory go on view at Pamela Salisbury Gallery on Friday, September 4, with an opening reception at 5-7pm. The artworks will remain on view through Sunday, October 4, 2020.
Don Voisine’s Time Out exhibit highlights recent paintings and works on paper that reflect the artist’s restrained but highly poetic compositions. Voisine’s work is represented in the permanent collections of over twenty major museums including: The Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art; The Phillips Collection; and Yale University Art Gallery. He is the recipient of numerous, distinguished awards including an Edward Albee Fellowship; The National Academy Museum Award; two New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships; and a residency through the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program. Voisine has been a National Academician since 2010, and is a member of American Abstract Artists, serving as president from 2004-2012.
Based in New York, Robert Palumbo is a documentary filmmaker and photographer who has worked for National Geographic, the New York Times, the German culture magazine Du, YRB, and Vice, among others. His work is included in the collections of The Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, the New York Historical Society, and several prominent private collections. He has shown nationally and internationally and is a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography. Palumbo holds a B.A. in English from the University of Pittsburgh and an M.F.A. in Film from Temple University, where his student films won several national and international awards. He is currently an Emmy nominee for Chasing Life, a documentary series he executive produced for CNN in 2019. Palumbo describes his exhibit, Mortal, as “a kind of slow-motion history of some of my most foundational, defining experiences and encounters, caught in the time warp of the present moment.”
Lisa Ivory’s Savage Gardens is comprised of 18 paintings and 14 ink drawings on paper. Her work depicts bestiality and the wild within. While Ivory’s paintings recall Goya and William Blake, her drawings have a more political aspect, bringing to mind the satirical sketches of Daumier. Ivory was born in 1970 in London, where she continues to live and work. This is the artist’s first exhibition in the United States.
Pamela Salisbury Gallery is located at 362 1/2 Warren St (formerly home to John Davis Gallery).
