The Gilded Owl and Elizabeth Moore Fine Art in Hudson, NY are pleased to present a two-part exhibition of the varied abstractions of Brooklyn and Chatham-based artist Margaret Evangeline.
The first and current part “Bringing It Forth” is being held at The Gilded Owl from August 10-Sept 15th and it consists of nearly two dozen artworks painted between 1999 and 2006, as well as a table top installation of current works on paper. The second part of the program “In The Chalice” will be presented from September 21-November 24 and will consist of recent artworks by Evangeline.
Bringing It Forth
Sometimes it takes a long time. What you create has to move through your entire body. It has to do that over your lifetime for you to understand or at least come close to understanding your own work.
To commemorate my relationship with Elizabeth Moore Fine Art (she first exhibited my work in Manhattan at her gallery some twenty seven years ago) and my newer relationship with Andy Goldsborough and Moore’s The Gilded Owl gallery we are showing these early paintings taken from storage. What I understand seeing these works now is my own process of opening up. Sometimes it’s explosive, sometimes it’s transparent as when I abraded metal surfaces to encourage light to animate the paint from within. This becomes a story, how light enters into matter. Not always by the same process but light often does get into matter over the years especially human material. Yes, the body seems to become translucent as we age.
Elizabeth and Andy have settled in Columbia County ahead of me. Now that I am in Chatham we have conjoined here and I am excited to see these paintings in their meaningful spaces. They seem to belong here. It may be because my first mirror polished stainless steel panel sculpture, Gunshot Landscape, 2003, I marked up with local gunshot from a rifle borrowed from a neighboring farmer and is part of The Fields’ permanent collection at ART OMI, Ghent, NY.
If these paintings show signs of destructive force it emerges from an urgency felt in the body. It has longing in it. It has heat in it that comes from the American South. I find painting useful in countering early years of suppression.
In my art practice I often begin working with specific meditation methods to keep myself in the present. Mine is an imperfect practice. Memories sometimes flash through my mind like lightning and at other times like falling rain.
The Gilded Owl is pleased to present voukenas petrides, our first show of the Spring on April 6th, 2019. Furniture designer Andreas Voukenas and architect Steven Petrides have created a group of six new plaster and metal sculptures (chairs, tables and lamps) as well as two new open wire mesh sculptures (a coffee table and console table) on-site in a house in Hudson, NY. The pieces were fabricated over the course of one month and then finished and sealed in the gallery. The new works explore tear and organic shapes that are inherent to the metal lathe sub structure and then layers of plaser are applied to give them strength and form.
The new steel wire mesh sculptures are masterfully sewn together and reinforced internally to give structure to the open forms. The end results interplay with light and shadow against the wall while at the same time become functional furniture pieces.
Voukenas Petrides is a design studio based in New York and Athens. Furniture designer Andreas Voukenas and architect Steven Petrides combine their talents to produce poetic furniture designs for the home and office. Greek Andreas Voukenas holds a bachelors degree in interior architecture and product design from the Athens University of Applied Science. American Steven Petrides holds a master of architecture from Columbia University. Their diverse portfolio includes stools, side tables, chairs, and installations. Each furniture piece is hand fabricated and finished in their Athens workshop. Their timeless designs reflect Steven’s interest in structure, materiality, light, and space, making each design a work of art. Their design objects are functional and inspirational in their ability to test the laws of gravity, balance, cantilever, and even the infinite. Andreas and Steven live and work in New York and Athens where they operate their design workshop.

voukenas petrides @hudson will be on view through June 2019 at our 318 Warren Street location.
The Gilded Owl is pleased to present DON FREEMAN / My Familiar Dream / 1994-2108.
Don Freeman is an American photographer, best known for his large, monochrome prints that depict subject matter, be it landscape, human forms or architectural fragments, in states of transmogrification. He divides his time between New York City and a house in the Catskill Mountains that he shares with his partner Garo Sparo and his dog Louie.
We are pleased to present Lauren Drescher “LUMINARIES” at THE GILDED OWL. Opening August 4th and running through September 9th at our 105 Warren Street gallery.
I have a been a collector for as long as I can remember. I am fascinated by objects which have a history, give insight into the past and have a story tell. I travel quite a bit, collecting wherever I go, disparate objects accumulate until I have a clear idea of what they will become.
We are thrilled to open our Spring season with new works by Sharon Brant and Guy Corriero, “Outside of Time and Change”.
For more than five decades, Sharon Brant has produced conceptually and aesthetically rigorous hard-edged paintings and works on paper. Her work is relentlessly spare, yet materially abundant, often consisting of no more than one or two fundamental shapes articulated in unexpected ways. Complementing her studio work, Brant has also practiced meditation since the late 1980s, which has had an immeasurable impact on the approach she takes in her studio and the work she ultimately produces.
We opened our current show Paul Jacobsen “In Through the Outside” and Berlin Deko, a collection of furniture, lighting and objects by German architects from 1910 to 1930 this week with a stellar turnout and the installation will be on view through November 18th in our 105 Warren Street gallery.
The Gilded Owl is pleased to announce There Will Be…Without You, an exhibition of photographs by Klemens Gasser. In his eighth solo show, Gasser presents not only an ornithological study in photography, but establishes, delicately, an existential examination of acts and awareness. Working in tandem, the two seemingly opposing tenets meld with one another as their simultaneous simplicity and complexity beam in Gasser’s offering of six monumental bird portraits.
The Gilded Owl is pleased to announce it’s latest exhibition “THE ANATOMY OF A ROOM” in Hudson, NY.
This group show features works by master craftsmen Peter Superti, Ron Arad, Vico Magistretti, and Frederick McSwain and Brad Ascalon. The main gallery will feature a collection of pairs of chairs from 1920-1980 as well as artwork by Karl Klingbiel and Margaret Evangeline. In the other ancillary spaces table top pieces by Tommi Parzinger, Steven Holl, and Michael Graves are shown with Syliva Jaffe and Cole Italia and works by photographer Mick Rock and artwork by Sharon Brant.
And we are thrilled to present new work by jewelry designer and sculptor Jessica Carroll.
Opening November 5th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
The Gilded Owl is pleased to present it’s fifth exhibition titled FRAGMENTS; paintings on panel by the artist, George Hofmann. On view in the galleries are 3 bodies of work dating from 2011 & 2012, each of which refer to their respective titles including Duccio, Breviary & Hours. Following are selected works and insight from Hofmann.
THE MYSTERY OF BEAUTY “IL MISTERO DELLA BELLEZZA / WORKS BY INDIA EVANS & ROOMS INSPIRED BY CARLO MOLLINO
On February 27th THE GILDED OWL opened it’s fourth show The Mystery of Beauty “Il Mistero della Bellezza” in Hudson, New York.
On Saturday November 22nd THE GILDED OWL gallery officially opened at 105 Warren Street in Hudson, NY. After exactly one year of renovation and construction Elizabeth Moore and I welcomed over one hundred and eighty five guests to celebrate our inaugural show in the 1785 Federal style house that is a now home to a realized version of our design, art, fashion and music journal. The brilliant Hudson based photographer Tomm Roesch documented our preparations and was on hand with us to capture the opening with his thoughtful eye. Thank you to all who made the journey to our beautiful new gallery and here’s a glimpse into THE GILDED OWL.
We are excited to announce that after one year of construction THE GILDED OWL will open it’s doors in Hudson, New York as a gallery of design, fine art, objects, fashion and music. As we countdown to our opening we will begin to preview some of the designers and artists work as well as interior images of the landmarked 1785 house that will soon become our new home.
I first discovered Fromental in 2006 when I was working on a house in Alabama and wanted something special and unusual for a powder room. We were looking at different plaster finishes and hand troweled surfaces but once we saw the intricately embroidered wallpaper called Peace Blossom from Fromental we were sold.
On Thursday, March 7th Bernd Goeckler will host a book signing of the fantastic new publication Fontana Arte by Franco Deboni. The results of a lifetime of collecting lighting, furniture and objects from the famed glass company and three years of writing and assembling these incredible works, Deboni’s book is truly something extraordinary and the most complete document on the companies history and it’s three primary directors.
Currently on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is Kohei Nawa’s PixCell-Deer #24. As part of the “Designing Nature, the Rinpa Aesthetic in Japanese Art” exhibit this work can be seen through January 13.
