• Disturb The Neighbors is pleased to present The Arcane Grin, a three person exhibition. This installation of paintings, sculpture and drawings intends to extract the mystical relationships hidden within the figures of each.

    The Arcane Grin shows each artist as a visual archaeologist and mixologist. They uncover fresh figural forms beneath layers of paint and layers of history. Each handmade piece falsely alludes in part to mechanical production, but their timelessness and subtle manipulation makes them intensely current and alive. The work is filled with character – a sensual humor riding the line between arcane and animated.

    The show features works by Patrick Groth, EJ Hauser and Cristina Tufiño.

    peaks + beasts
    26 Oct - 16 Dec, 2017
    More information here

    Romer Young Gallery is pleased to present peaks + beasts, an exhibition of new paintings by New York artist EJ Hauser. This is the gallery's first solo exhibition with the artist; there will be an opening reception on Thursday, October 26th, 5-8pm.

    peaks + beasts is connected to Hauser's exhibition seekers / beasts in Los Angeles. The shows are connected through the beasts. The exhibition weaves together Hauser's kingdom of beasts - her amphibians, smilers, mountains with eyes, tigers, bees, monkeys and lions, birds, cats, heads - with the mythological landscapes and colorscapes that her beasts might like to dwell in. Inspired by the 19th century Peaceable Kingdom series of paintings by the Quaker painter Edward Hicks, the cast of characters in her work symbolize ideas of transformation, metamorphosis, mythology, and visual polyphony. The works on view at AWHRHWA and Romer Young Gallery are "an exercise in visual openness - symbolic and humorous, they present an exuberant alternative to the stark chaos of now."

    Hauser's paintings live in the borderland between painting and drawing, analog and digital, abstraction and representation, real and mythical. The artist has an unmistakable brushstroke and and intuitive practice that employs repetition, layering to conjure a simultaneity of points of view, perspectives, and visions.

    EJ Hauser lives and works in New York City and has exhibited at venues such as Regina Rex, Sperone Westwater, White Columns, Participant Inc, Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, Cheim & Read, New York, The Breeder, Athens, The Contemporary Art Museum, Raleigh, NC and The University of Tennessee Ewing Gallery, Knoxville, TN. EJ Hauser is represented by Regina Rex, New York City.

  • AWHRHWAR is thrilled to present seekers / beasts, EJ Hauser's first solo show in Los Angeles. In these paintings and drawings, made during the summer 2017, EJ takes inspiration from the Quaker painter Edward Hicks' early 19th century depictions of the Peaceable Kingdom. EJ's intuitive drawing practice employs serialization, layerings, editing and cross-pollination to inform paintings as well as embody its own statement. From inside these works, beasts look out at you, some fantastical or potentially mythological, some have three eyes, others are masked, but they are all seekers. This work is an exercise in visual openness— symbolic and humorous, it presents an exuberant alternative to the stark chaos of now.

  • Lump is pleased to present Four Man Show: Albee/Carland/Hauser/Oleson. The exhibition will run from April 1 - 30, 2016 with an opening reception on Friday, April 1st from 6 - 9pm.

    Lump presents the work of Becca Albee, Tammy Rae Carland, EJ Hauser and Jeanine Oleson, four outstanding artists who have had solo exhibitions at Lump in the past. Carland's Queer Youth, 1999, black-and-white portraits taken in Durham, shown at Lump in 1999, will return to the gallery. Albee's photographs, condition reports, 2015-16, positions condition reports for portraits by Man Ray in color block formations. Hauser’s painting FR(blue), 2014, combine shield-like image of initials and bodies. Oleson's video Actually, blue is not a warm color, 2014, made on Fire Island, is about time spent making things with friends and mourning—a vision of queer life that perhaps counters recent, more popular portrayals

    DORSKY GALLERY / Curatorial Programs is pleased to announce the continuation of its program of independently-curated exhibitions: Donut Muffin, curated by Jessica Duffett and Tamara Gonzales.

    Donut Muffin is an exhibition that explores dialogues in New York-based contemporary painting and sculpture. The exhibition mines the rich intersections between once segregated territories: painting and sculpture, conceptual and intuitive art practices, and the space between intention and perception.

    The title of the exhibition is derived from a pastry often shared by the curators during their conversations leading up to the exhibition. This humble decadent treat serves as an irreverent yet apt metaphor for reflections on objects challenging single readings.

    New York CIty @ 83 Bowery 2nd Floor NYC 10002
    September 21–October 20, 2012

    A "Pig Party" is defined by WikiAnswers as, "a term, first coined in the movie Animal House. It is a college party where guys see who can bring the ugliest date. Usually there is some sort of wager on the line and a voting system that happens after the ugly dates have left the party."

    With this idea in mind, New York City presents works from "secret" painting practices, awesomely "bad" undergrad works, awfully amazing things found online, middle school art class drawings, and more!!!

    Some of these artists are old friends. Some of them have never met. This show is a way for them to meet and for their work to converse.

    Presented as a melange, this exhibition has an earthy flavor with a clean finish. Balanced and light-bodied, it combines honey sweetness with a hint of citrus for a smooth-looking exhibition—perfect for viewing all day.
