Abattoir: Summer in the City
This June will mark the start of the gallery’s third year. In that time, Abattoir has supported work by many young artists and introduced exciting work by nationally-recognized artists to Cleveland’s art lovers. We are proud to support Katie Butler and Max Markwald in our gallery program; they are both young artists who have been selected for the journal New American Paintings. Kent-based Shawn Powell showed his life preserver paintings at NADA Miami with us. Our artists have joined the collections of the Cleveland Clinic Art Foundation, Progressive Insurance and the Akron Art Museum, as well as those of experienced and novice collectors in the area and beyond.
Owners Lisa Kurzner and Rose Burlingham will continue presenting excellent regional talent, alongside distinguished visiting artists. Upcoming solo exhibits this fall will give a deeper look at gallery artists Shawn Powell and Lauren Yeager.
On view until June 4 are works by two Cleveland artists: Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson’s woven paintings and Brinsley Tyrrell’s ceramic sculptures. Following on June 10 is Cheap Thrills, a conceptual exhibit with commentary on the social divide in consumer products by Erykah Townsend, which will introduce Alex Vlasov. Opening on July 8 will be a show featuring videos by Cleveland-born Cameron Granger and installation sculpture by Dominic Palarchio.
If you’re in the Hudson Valley in August, stop by Abattoir at Foreland Studios in Catskill, New York, to view paintings by Caitlin MacBride and installation sculpture by Dominic Palarchio.
