Illumination: light, reflection & vision

    For Immediate Release ILLUMINATION: light, reflection & vision A solo show by Denise Jones Adler February 19- March 16, 2019 Opening Reception 2/23 3-6 pm Closing Reception 3/14 6-8 pm Pleiades Gallery was founded in 1974 by a group of like-minded artists seeking an alternative to the constraints of the commercial gallery world. One of the oldest cooperative galleries in New York City, Pleia- des was a leading participant in the Association of Artist Run Galleries and the cooperative movement of the 1970’s. Today, Pleiades continues its original purpose by exhibiting the contemporary and thought-provoking work of its selected members in the prestigious Chelsea gallery district. Its strength lies in its diversity of style, ages, and viewpoints. Pleiades Gallery is proud to present Illumination: light, reflection & vision, a solo show by member artist Denise Jones Adler, February 19 through March 16, 2019. The NYT has reviewed Adler’s previous work, comparing the “power of the [her] projected photographs” to Steichen. In this exhibit, the artist has set out to create a sense of the magical. These pieces, both personal and archetypical, memorialize a moment in time, the fragile nature of life and the emotional impact of the past on the present. Her works include portraits and dreamscapes that pinpoint her unsettled views of the world with a subtle sense of amusement and innate feminism. Her work explores the mythic and legendary through her examination of identity and self-reflec- tion, while also exhibiting a unique sensitivity to her environment. The show captivates viewers by bringing together the internal, external, and virtual, illustrating a sense of our collective human experience. Denise Jones Adler is a NYC based collage and mixed media artist, her work is included in collections both nationally and internationally. email: website: instagram:@deniseadler123 Cell: 917.455.8302  Gallery hours Tuesday - Saturday 11-6PM and by appointment. 530 West 25th Street • #406 • New York, NY 10001 • Tel: 646.230.0056
