BEJEWELED, BEWITCHED, BEDAZZLED: A Holiday Exhibition
November 26, 2011 – January 14, 2012
Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is delighted to present “Bejeweled, Bewitched, Bedazzled,” a holiday group exhibition on view November 26, 2011 through January 14, 2012. With a special focus on art with meditative qualities in the midst of a season defined by chaos, the show will feature signature works by a range of artists, including Makoto Fujimura, Stanley Boxer, Donald Sultan, Susan Wides, Eugene Healy, Anne de Villemejane, Abraham Walkowitz, Larry Horowitz, John Beerman and Pablo Picasso.
The show will present works in several mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, collage, and mixed media.
Makoto Fujimura works within the tradition of abstract painting and Nihonga, a medieval Japanese painting practice. He combines sumi ink, used in East Asian brush painting, with pure gold, silver and ground minerals, such as malachite, cinnabar, and vermilion to create unmistakable work. The work on view is a shimmering, multi-layered painting that attempts to span the void between transitory and eternal worlds.
Stanley Boxer is heavily influenced in the Modernist tradition and a superb manipulator of surfaces. In Memoireofmoment, Boxer combines diverse materials, such as glitter and wood, with generous quantities of oil paint to create sensual mélanges of texture and color. His work is represented in major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Donald Sultan, a prominent painter, printmaker and sculptor, is known for slightly abstract still-life compositions. He commonly uses bold, bright colors and deep black forms, as seen in Black and Red Poppy, which also employs his signature use of unorthodox media in its tar paper and plaster make-up. His work is included in many prestigious collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Australian National Gallery, and the Walker Art Center.
Susan Wides explores layers of human participation in communal spaces through the transformation of public activities into intimate scenes. Central Park [February 2010] was a part of her recent solo exhibition at the Hudson River Museum and one of her more well known works, as it was the cover for the International Center of Photography’s winter catalogue. Her work is in many collections, including Brooklyn Museum (NY), The Norton Museum of Art (FL) and the International Center of Photography (NY).
Eugene Healy illustrates abstract shore scenes in his works on view, orchestrating lines, shapes and colors into particular combinations to evoke ecstasy. This use of significant form, a theory coined by British art critic Clive Bell in 1913, induces particular moods and feelings in the viewer, created by his employment of paint, sand, fabrics and pieces of window screens.
Anne de Villemejane focuses on a subdued rendering of nudes in her work of view. The emotional tension in Nu Dechire Blanc is developed through a sense of color and texture, and comes from her curiosity about the primacy of emotion and energy in life. As a collage, Nu Dechire Blanc explores the body through distortion and manipulation.
Abraham Walkowitz illustrated renowned dancer Isadora Duncan extensively throughout her life and after she died. The Dancer, part of these drawings considered the most comprehensive record to capture Duncan’s essential dance movements and style, utilizes minimal line and was executed from memory.
Larry Horowitz is a respected landscape painter working in the Plein Air tradition, whose paintings are alluring and tend to elicit a range of emotions in the viewer. Horowitz’s works reflect a careful attention to traditional methods and materials. While The Clothesline reflects a careful attention to traditional methods and materials in his signature application of paint – thickly painted impasto, palette knife carved surfaces – Horowitz’s colors are contemporary. Stylistically, this work bridges the divide between representation and near abstraction.
John Beerman is a master of painting the American countryside. As a student of the school of the great Hudson River landscape painters, light is the presiding presence in Eastern Sky. His guileless wonder produces a memorable view of the serene beauty of nature. This peaceful, almost dreamlike scene floats off the medium surface, delivered with technical mastery and self-evident care. He delivers visual and emotional findings to the viewer, characterized by the full power of nature and devoid of human intervention. His work has been acquired by the collections of Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC; Brooklyn Museum, NYC; Center for Contemporary Art, Cleveland OH; Cleveland Museum of Art, OH; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis MN; Farnsworth Museum, Rockland ME; and Neuberger Museum, Purchase NY.
The Decade Show: An Anniversary Exhibition

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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Matrix to Impression: Contemporary and Modern prints
Including works by Josef Albers, Joe Andoe, Jean Arp, Milton Avery, Nell Blaine, Stanley Boxer, John Chamberlain, Sam Francis, Stanley William Hayter, Jasper Johns, Wolf Kahn, Sol Lewitt, Joan Miró, Joan Mitchell, Abraham Rattner, Robert Rauschenberg, Sean Scully, Kiki Smith, Donald Sultan, Antoni Tapies, Fumiko Toda, Ossip Zadkine and others
January 21 – March 5, 2011
Madelyn Jordon Fine Art is pleased to present a group exhibition, entitled "Matrix to Impression: Contemporary and Modern prints", from January 21st thru March 5, 2011. The exhibit will include a selection of nearly 25 prints - etchings, lithographs, monotypes, silkscreens, woodcuts - by the finest Contemporary and Modern artists. An opening reception will be held Friday, January 21, 2011 from 6-8PM. The public is invited. Previews and private showings are by appointment only.
The exhibition's artists are leaders of the primary schools of 20th century art - including Ab Ex, Pop, Minimalism, and Surrealism. Many made prints throughout their careers and were innovators of the medium. While the prints in the exhibition are primarily abstract, the work of Andoe, Avery, Blaine, and Smith is grounded in the figurative.
Contemporary printmakers in the exhibition include Andoe, Chamberlain, Johns, Kahn, Scully, Smith, Sultan, Tapies and Toda. Jasper Johns revolutionized printmaking with his innovations in screenprinting, lithography, and etching. Here, Johns's screenprint "Untitled" (1976), is executed with the artist's distinct crosshatched marks, a graphic method of adding depth and volume to an image or conveying the illusion of light in space. Johns's cross-hatching is gestural without being emotive; repeatable and ordered but not strictly geometric or reductive.
Contemporary artist Kiki Smith has focused on printmaking throughout her career. The body is a recurrent subject in her work, as is the inclusion of animals. In "Turtle” (2000), Smith pasted a shell over her own image, creating an awkward hybrid. "I found this anthropomorphizing interesting," she has said. "The human attributes we give to animals, and the animal attributes we take on as humans construct our identity."
Modern artists in the exhibition include Albers, Arp, Avery, Blaine, Boxer, Francis, Hayter, Lewitt, Miró, Mitchell, Rattner, Rauschenberg, and Zadkine. A highlight of the exhibition is a collection of iconic silkscreens by Josef Albers, one of the most influential artists and theorists of the 20th century, from his limited edition portfolio, Formulation: Articulation published in 1972.
Joan Mitchell's two lithographs - "Sunflower V" (1992) and "Tree I" (1993) will also be featured. Mitchell's prints represent a high-water mark in the history of Post-War American graphics. In "Sunflower V" Mitchell suggests the sensation and quiet beauty of dying sunflowers without overtly depicting its elements. In "Tree I", Mitchell's fiercely gestural strokes of color, both warm and cool, convey an energy and vitality uniquely hers. These are among Mitchell's most brash and exuberant prints.
Another highlight in the exhibition is Hayter's masterful engraving with soft-ground etching "Le Couple". Hayter, associated with Surrealism in the 1930s and with Abstract Expressionism from 1940 onward, is regarded as one of the most significant printmakers of the 20th century. As founder of the legendary Atelier 17 studio in Paris and NewYork City, Hayter collaborated with many major artists of his day. He was a master printmaker in his own right as well.
The exhibition offers an exciting presentation of prints by the Contemporary and Modern artists who used the medium successfully and powerfully.
