July 16, 2018 - Berry Campbell

Inaugurated in 2010, the Long Island Biennial is a juried competition offering local artists an opportunity to show their work to a broad public in a professional Museum setting. Long Island has a rich artistic history and has long been an inspiration for artists. The Long Island Biennial receives hundreds of entries from gifted, professional, contemporary Long Island artists. The jurors will select outstanding works for inclusion in a Biennial exhibition at The Heckscher Museum, August 4 to November 11, 2018. All submissions will be shown in an online gallery on

 The Long Island Biennial is a perfect opportunity for artists to showcase their work to a wide audience, and for art lovers to discover the talent that is flourishing across Suffolk and Nassau Counties,” said Lisa Chalif, Curator, Heckscher Museum of Art.


Berry Campbell is pleased to announce its representation of Frank Wimberley

July 10, 2018 - Berry Campbell

We are thrilled to add this talented artist to our roster and look forward to presenting an exhibition of his work in 2019.

Over the course of a career that has spanned more than fifty years, Frank Wimberley has felt abstract painting to be a continuous adventure. Now 92, the artist is a well-known presence in the art scene on the East End of Long Island and an important figure in African American art since the 1960s. Acclaimed for his dynamic, multi-layered, and sophisticated paintings, Wimberley is among the leading contemporary artists to continue in the Abstract Expressionist tradition. What has always excited him is to take the theme or feeling from the very first stroke he lays down and follow it to its particular conclusion, "very much like creating the controlled accident." His improvisational method is akin to jazz, an important part of his life and a theme in his art. Despite the spontaneity of his process, Wimberley makes each decision deliberately, respectful of what emerges and where it is going; he enjoys the surprise of arriving at definitions that seem to come to life on their own. Similarly, his works engage the viewer in their strong physicality and unpredictability as well as in their insights into the ways that pictorial experiences are perceived and understood.

Five museum shows you should see this summer

July 5, 2018 - Mark Jenkins for The Washington Post

'Full Circle: Hue and Saturation in the Washington Color School'

The first show at the Luther W. Brady Gallery’s new, larger quarters in the former Corcoran Gallery draws mostly from George Washington University’s own collection, but it’s broadened by savvy borrowings. This impressive selection of color-field painting includes many mid-20th-century Washingtonians, and encompasses out-of-towners and recent work. Pictures by such noted D.C. colorists as Gene Davis and Anne Truitt contrast vivid colors with hard-edge geometry. Less solemn and newly painted is a 2017 canvas by New York’s Larry Poons, a onetime minimalist buoyantly reborn as an expressionist. Through Oct. 25 at George Washington University Luther W. Brady Gallery, Corcoran School of the Arts & Design, 500 17th St. NW. 202-994-1525.


NYC Gallery Scene – Highlights Through July 8, 2018

July 3, 2018 - Genevieve Kotz for Hamptons Art Hub

Allowing viewers the opportunity to see a wide variety of work, this annual exhibition will feature paintings and works on paper by mid-century and contemporary artists. Select works from each of the gallery’s 28 represented artists and estates will be on display, including work by Judith Godwin, Raymond Hendler, Ann Purcell and Larry Zox. Additional works from the gallery’s inventory will also be on display, including work by Elaine de Kooning, Nancy Graves, Paul Jenkins, Larry Poons, Frank Stella and Wolf Kahn.


Elucidations: Jill Nathanson at Berry Campbell

June 27, 2018 - Christina Kee for artcritical

Talk of “purity” is usually best resisted in relation to works of visual art. What sort of uninflected content or form can really ever be referred to by it, after all? Jill Nathanson’s structured pourings of clear and vivid color, however, suggest the creator’s affinity with the powers of her painted medium in their most abstract sense. Beyond the transparency of the paint itself, which leads the viewer into impressions of these paintings as something aquatically pristine, there is an overall attitude of clarity and resolution in these strong and searching works. In contrast to much contemporary abstraction, Nathanson’s paintings have more to do with elucidation than complication, and seem distilled from deeply thought-through relationships of light, space, color and gravity.


Ugo Rondinone brings us blue skies at Peter Freeman’s summer group show

June 26, 2018 - Linda Yablonsky for The Art Newspaper

Every year, the arrival of June seems to have a Pavlovian effect on art dealers. Everywhere, doors open to group exhibitions, often organised by outside curators and all kinds of artists.

That is the case for the serene Summer at Peter Freeman in SoHo (until 27 July), which is also a kind of special case, chiefly because its curator was the Swiss-born New Yorker, Ugo Rondinone. He is an artist known for his deft handling of work in nearly all media and scale, but he also has an excellent track record as the curator of two, sweeping exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and at the Barbara Gladstone Gallery in New York, which represents him.


Celebrating 100 in Style with Annie Solomon

June 19, 2018 - Kay Kipling for Sarasota Magazine

How do you mark the miraculous milestone of a 100th birthday? If you’re Annie Solomon, renowned hostess and party giver extraordinaire, you welcome guests to your bayfront condo with plenty of great food and drink, plus a very special piece of clothing and a group photograph.


ART REVIEW: Jill Nathanson Explores Deep Commitment to Color Interaction

June 18, 2018 - Peter Malone for Hamptons Art Hub

As the exhibition title “Cadence” implies, there is a cyclical pattern to Jill Nathanson’s paintings. In the artist’s current show at Berry Campbell in Chelsea—consisting of a dozen or so pieces remaining on view through June 30—each painting returns to a fundamental premise. All of the works rely in part on an easily grasped compositional process to create subtle color relationships that in turn complicate what seems at first a predictable formula.


Jill Nathanson: Cadence

June 15, 2018 - David Jacobson for Delicious Line

Empirical Empyrean (2017), the title of one of Jill Nathanson's fifteen abstract paintings in "Cadence" at Berry Campbell, says it all. Each painting is built out of discrete, translucent color areas that thicken where they overlap. As they coalesce into fields, juxtapositions of hue prompt the eye to unify the compositions. The color transcends local incident, while the translucency generates an overall glow.
