Twice As Nice: Hamptons Gallery Debuting Double Dose Of New Exhibits

Nicole Barylski

"Behind the Scenes" by Stephanie Brody-Lederman and "Gone Wild" by Cara Enteles.

On Saturday, November 14th, Sara Nightingale Gallery is celebrating two new exhibits during the opening of Mirrors in the Garden and Out Gallivanting. "Stephanie Brody-Lederman has a solo show at Guild Hall - so we decided to have the exhibition in my gallery concurrent with that," shared Sara Nightingale, gallery owner. "While Cara Enteles is having a show in the project space in the gallery."

Enteles' Mirrors in the Garden explores the impossibility of symmetry, order and exactness in nature. The artist used Shakespeare's line in Hamlet, "art holds a mirror up to nature," as inspiration for the series, where the avid gardener wanted to demonstrate the dichotomy between organic, natural growth and the human gardener's effort to regulate it. Enteles often uses her works to address the environmental issues that curse our natural world, such as oil spills, colony collapse disorder, and fracking. But to the casual viewer, Enteles' paintings come across as a stunning series of nature inspired works, which hold an intrinsic tension due to the industrial supports, aluminum sheets and layers of plexiglas she paints on.

Brody-Lederman's Out Gallivanting, which is co-curated by Karyn Mannix, uses the artist's observations and memories of visual occurrences with text extracted from conversation, poetry and other resources as inspiration. Her paintings and mixed media works capture the experiences and impressions of everyday life, like a recollection of a woman's scarf, a label on a can in a grocery store, or bits of an overheard conversation. The exhibit allows viewers to nostalgically relate their own memories and emotions to each piece. The personal narratives of Brody-Lederman's work generate "impressionistic portraits of uncertain psychic atmospheres," said Edward M. Gomez of Art & Antiques. Dancing with Truffaut, Brody-Lederman's solo exhibition at Guild Hall (158 Main Street, East Hampton), is currently on view and will run through Sunday, January 3rd. Brody-Lederman will discuss her work during Gallery Talk with Artist Stephanie Brody-Lederman & Christina Strassfield at Guild Hall on Saturday, November 14th at 11:30 a.m.

"The two artists have never met, so it should be fun," noted Nightingale.

An opening reception for both exhibits will take place on Saturday, November 14th from 5 to 7 p.m.

Sara Nightingale Gallery is located at 688 Montauk Highway in Water Mill. For information, call 631-793-2256 or visit saranightingale.com.
