2013-2014 Exhibitions

What We Do:

The heart of Ceres is the exhibition season consisting of solo exhibitions and curated group shows. In addition to its function as a gallery and community network for women artists, Ceres presents a wide range of performances in such areas as music, poetry, and dance. Performance and gallery artists collaborate to curate programs for the season providing an important dialog between different disciplines within the New York community.

Sara Conklin
Disquiet of the Night
Hollis Hildebrand-Mills uses images from twelve small collages, in an animated projected video. These images also appear in some larger works in the exhibition along with the small collages.

Jane Stevens
Time Stands Still: Photographs by Jane Stevens
Digital photographs capture a moment in time that represents to the artist a unique juxtaposition of objects. These objects share with the viewer a forgotten experience and time. They embody a sense of wonder in a time long past.

October 1 - October 26, 2013

Frances V. Gialamas
Keeping Time

These works are archival flash-backs of men and women steel workers. The past is layered with the present in counterpoint to create a quiet industrial beauty.

Marilyn Banner
Wind and Water

Coastal sand dunes and waters have inspired these lush and luminous paintings in encaustic. The artist plays with the line between abstraction and representation, with an insistence on emotional depth and visceral reality.

Sue Collier
Sue Collier: Plein Air Paintings
“In pursuit of the authentic portrayal we intrude and fix our gaze on the inward-turned privacy of others. We become voyeur; in seeking to understand the interior of others, we seek to understand ourselves.”         Cynthia Roznoy on Sue Collier’s work.

October 29 - November 23, 2013

Elizabeth R. Weiner-Cohen
Elizabeth Cohen will present the next in her series of installations about her doll "culture". Her last show dealt with the dolls' language and religion. Her 2013 show will focus on the dolls' governmental system.

Carlyle N. Chadruc
This show explores the relationship between maps and the landscape – how geometry of the compass is applied to undulating geography. Map features like compass roses, cartouches, and sight lines are explored through paintings and mixed media collages.

Three Decades of Ceres
Ceres Gallery proudly presents an exhibition of women artists of every stripe and many places who have made Ceres a thriving, supportive community for 30 years.
The history of Ceres is rife with strength and forward thinking.  Our artist community is exclusively devoted to creating work that contributes to the world of ideas rather than simply to the art market. This exhibition celebrates our 30 years, past and present. Ceres is our artists and we salute them.

February 4 - March 1, 2014

Pamela Roule Shields
One Body
Shields explores masturbation and the female body in her large charcoal drawings. Monumental, weighty figures, complete with cellulite and folds of fat, confront and question what is considered ‘acceptable’ and ‘normal’.  They remind us that freedom happens one body at a time.

Jo-Ann Brody
Scar Tissue
This exhibition uses words and image to explore relationships in clay and cement, through figures, pages, and book forms. It is an introspective look at life and the events that shaped it..

March 4 - March 29, 2014

Carol Goebel

This exhibition features richly glazed clay sculpture using the iconic house image, a square base with a triangular roof. Houses depict physical events—flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes, as well as psychological states—growth, abundance, abuse, and deprivation.

Lynne Mayocole
There Was a Little Girl

This is an exhibition exploring and exploding the image of the girl child in nursery rhymes.

April 1 - April 26, 2014

Phyllis Rosser
The Forest and Garden: Sculpture and Paintings
In this show, the artist embraces the energy of the forest and the romance of the garden.  Abstract sculptural collages, made from found wood that capture the raw power of nature, will be shown with paintings of the garden as orchestrated utopia.

Perri Neri
Perri Neri is an unabashedly feminist artist.  Neri presents a psychologically charged drama rich in folding bulbous flesh and soaring glowing light.  Her work sets the stage for a beautiful dance between the figurative and the abstract.

April 29 - May 24, 2014

Masayo Nishimura
The New Horizon: Scenes in northern Japan nearly two years after the disaster
Nishimura’s color photographs of northern Japan in 2012 show clouds drifting over the vast landscape, scanning shattered buildings, mountains of debris, power shovels at work, and a field of sunflowers; a story of devastation and loss, and hope for recovery.

Micaela di Vivero
(Im)possible Interventions
In this body of work, Micaela Vivero explores the possibility of the impossible. Her reference is the urban landscape, which works not only as a backdrop, but also as the place where the norm is defined.

May 27 - June 21, 2014
