PRESS RELEASE

THE DECADE SHOW: An Anniversary Exhibition
September 17 – November 12, 2011


Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is delighted to present “The Decade Show: An Anniversary Exhibition,” a celebratory exhibition marking the gallery’s 10-year anniversary, on September 17 through November 12, 2011. With a special focus on the 10 artists who have been integral to the gallery over the last 10 years, the show will feature unexpected groupings of work to create an exciting dialogue between the artists and their pieces, demonstrating the vitality and scope of our programming.

The 10th anniversary exhibition will showcase artists, David Kimball Anderson, Stanley Boxer, Antonio Carreno, Ken Elliott, Theodore Fried, Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida, Lawrence Kelsey, Wosene Worke Krosof, Ted Larsen, and Linda Touby. The show will present works in several mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, and photography.

“It’s been quite a decade. Time passes by quickly, but I look back at the friends we’ve made, the exhibitions we’ve presented, and what we’ve accomplished. There’s a lot that I’m proud of, and I hope we’ve been a positive influence in our area — providing a link to exceptionally talented artists, and facilitating an interaction with great work,” Madelyn Jordon said.

Additional festivities surrounding the gallery’s anniversary have been planned, including a benefit silent auction of exciting artworks by emerging and established artists every two weeks, a mobile pop-up gallery traveling county-wide, and an Open House on September 17, 2011 to kick off the show. The public is invited.

The rotating silent auctions will feature works by new and established artists, such as Josef Albers, John Beerman, Ross Bleckner, Zang Fanzhi, Makoto Fujimura, Dan Gualdoni, Paul Hunter, Alex Katz, Wolf Khan, Patrick LoCicero, Kim McCarty, Yue Minjun, Pablo Picasso, Earl Scofield, Hunt Slonem, Christina Stahr, Fumiko Toda, Michael Torlen and others. Every two weeks, you will have a chance to bid on a curated group of works by phone, by e-mail or in person.

On select evenings throughout the fall, we will be traveling county-wide with our mobile pop-up art gallery to towns such as Armonk, Chappaqua, Greenwich, Bronxville and Rye. Residents will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win one of three Josef Albers prints. Details regarding locations and times will be posted on our website, Twitter and Facebook.

Opening its doors within the Scarsdale community in the fall of 2001, MJFA has been a source for experienced and novice collectors in contemporary art for 10 years. Our commitment to quality and our loyal clients have allowed the gallery to survive past the art market crash of 2007 and a weak economy. We are thankful to the talents of our artists and the business of our clients over the last 10 years.

As stated by Roberta Smith, New York Times chief art critic, “The art dealers’ creed is partly financial, partly educational. They want to make money, in order to support themselves and their artists, but they also want to exhibit things that, ideally, you don’t see every day, things that expand the viewing public’s sense of the present or the past in some way” (New York Times, p. C-22, 8/19/11). That has been this gallery’s goal and we look forward to continuing for years to come.
