Ken Greenleaf's Show Reviewed in the Wall Street Journal

December 20, 2014 - Peter Plagens

The exhibition’s modesty and its adherence to an aesthetic that the current art world has largely consigned to the files of “Been there, done that” shouldn’t be off-putting. Mr. Greenleaf’s recent work radiates sincerity, and not the cheap, sentimental kind. He means what he says in these gritty drawings and carefully calibrated paintings, and the show is worth seeing.

Artist Syd Solomon Led Rich Life in Sarasota

December 4, 2014 - Mike Solomon

When the adventure fabulist novel, King Solomon’s Mines, was written in 1885 by H. Rider Haggard, it was promoted in London as “The Most Amazing Book Ever Written,” and it became an immediate best seller. Once the contents at The Solomon Archive become known through a documentary film we are producing about my parents, Syd and Annie Solomon, I’m hoping that a similar response may occur. Their story is certainly an amazing one.

Younger collectors are expected to descend on the city.

“We’re talking under 30 years old,” said Christine Berry of Berry Campbell gallery in New York. “Their money is across the board. It’s self made; it’s inherited; it’s finance. It’s a new generation of collectors.”

Art Review: Maine artists at the fore in NYC

November 30, 2014 - Daniel Kany for Portland Press Herald

While I was in New York to see the Leonard Lauder collection of Cubism at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (it actually surpasses its lofty billing), I saw a pair of shows by Mainers Ken Greenleaf and Dan Mills.

While the Nobleboro-based Greenleaf had a notable early New York City career as a sculptor and has shown at Caldbeck and Aucocisco galleries in Maine, more Mainers probably know him as a serious and insightful art critic. An exhibition of his paintings, drawings and collages is now on view at Berry Campbell Gallery in Chelsea.

New Additions to Guild Hall Permanent Collection on View

November 20, 2014 - Stephanie Troy for Dan's Papers

In an entirely different palette, Susan Vecsey’s “White Main Beach,” East Hampton, 2012, is a scene familiar to anyone who braves the ocean beach on an overcast winter’s day. Bathed in whites, with violet tints in the sky and greenish tints in the sand, Vecsey creates a composition that both goes in toward a vanishing point and comes back at you, through the movement in the clouds. The whole inward/outward motion then takes a vertical and horizontal direction from the crosshatching of the linen, on which White Beach, East Hampton is painted.

BERRY CAMPBELL is pleased to announce the representation of the estate of Dan Christensen (1942-2007), a leading figure in the Color Field movement, whose relentless experimentation with new tools and materials made him among the most ambitious abstract and gestural artists of his time.  Christensen's exuberant art contributes to the gallery's prominent role as a showcase for established and mid-career artists in the modernist tradition. Berry Campbell looks forward to hosting a solo exhibition of Christensen's paintings in 2015.
