Mirrors and Beauty go hand in hand. Originally an incantation in the Brothers Grimm 19th-century story Little Snow White and expanded upon in Disney’s version more
than 100 years later, “Mirror, mirror” has us questioning what beauty is and how it can be measured.
Mirrors are reflective surfaces, typically constructed of glass coated with a metal amalgam that reflects a clear image. You can take our theme literally and look to the properties of a mirror or reflective surface, or you can look at a mirror as metaphor for beauty. You artwork need not have a depiction of an actual mirror in it to be considered.
Mirror, Mirror will be juried by Elinor Carruci, and will coincide with Sage Sohier’s solo exhibition Witness to Beauty.Click here to apply.
Elinor Carruci is an Israeli-American photographer who has had solo exhibitions at Edwynn Houk Gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, James Hyman and Gagosian Gallery, London.

The title of the show takes its name from the ancient Chinese lunar calendar, which divides the year into 24 segments, each segment given a specific solar term. This system provided a time frame for agriculture, everyday life and festivals. Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao was born in Taiwan in 1977, and immigrated in 1999 to the United States, residing in the Queens Borough of New York City. He lived in close proximity of the 7-subway line, and created his renowned “Habitat 7” series, which stated his claim and love for New York City.
Over the years, Liao has transitioned from large format film to digital photography. By digitally manipulating multiple exposures of Central Park while adapting a vertical format traditionally found in 17th century Chinese scroll paintings, Liao pays homage to both his Taiwanese heritage and identity as a New Yorker. Central Park New York, 24 Solar Terms looks at a dynamic and ever-changing landscape. At once familiar, the “lung of Manhattan” still reveals surprises. Liao invites us into mysterious enclaves primed for intimacy and reflection carefully hidden among the familiar public gathering sites and well-founded landmarks. In 2012, Liao won the Emerging Icon in Photography Award from George Eastman House. His series “Habitat 7” received critical acclaim, and in 2005, Liao was honored with the New York Times Magazine “Capture the Times” photography contest.
Liao’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Queens Museum, NY, Brooklyn Museum, NY, J. Paul Getty Museum, LA, George Eastman House-International Museum of Photography and Film, NY, the Norton Museum of Art and the Deutsche Bank art collection. Liao’s first monograph, Habitat 7, was published in 2008 by Nazraeli Press, which also published his second monograph, Coney Island, in 2013. In October of 2014, Aperture Foundation published his third monograph, Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao: New York, encompassing his work in New York for the past 10 years. In September 2017, Nazraeli Press will publish his fourth monograph, Central Park New York that will coincide with his solo exhibition, of the same name at Foley Gallery.

MAY 17 - JUNE 25, 2017
Foley Gallery is pleased to present “Subtext II: Meditations”, a solo exhibition featuring works by Wyatt Gallery. This will be the artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Meditations move the Subtext series towards a closer connection with the artist’s spiritual practice by identifying opportunities for an urban-mindful experience. The photographs in this series are sourced from found advertising spaces throughout the New York City subway system. Waiting for the next train, Gallery takes a moment to pause and reflect on the empty space in which advertisements have been temporarily removed. Years of glue, paper, scraping, painting, gluing...repeat, have left clues of the palimpsests that have been recorded for years if not decades.
Gallery transforms these evolving abstractions into photographic prints, referencing the masterful paintings by American abstract expressionism and French décollage art of the 1960’s Nouveau Réalisme movement. The viewer is left with a scene that may have only been visible for hours, maybe days - until the next advertisement is placed on top, transforming the space yet again.
Meditations continue the dialogue of the original Subtext series by getting further in tune with Gallery’s personal spiritual practice. Gazing into these spaces, Gallery finds reverence and an urban tranquility. For a moment, we may find quiet contemplation in a context where Subtext becomes more powerful than the rush around us.
Gallery received his BFA in photography at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 1997. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards such as the PDN 30, ICP’s Infinity Award, PDN Annual, American Photography, and 25 Under 25 Up-and-Coming American Photographers by Duke University. His photographs have been exhibited throughout the world and are in major private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the George Eastman House, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and American Express.
Subtext II: Meditations will remain on view through June 25th, 2017. Foley Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 - 6pm, Sunday 12:30 - 6pm. To request images; please contact the gallery at 212.244. 9081 firstname.lastname@example.org

The large watercolor paintings on paper depict groupings of interacting nude figures. Rendered in a spectrum of bright hues and gray monochromes, the bodies change color or density in the areas where they come together. Precisely aligned eyes, heads, hands, and feet, raise the question of whether the figures agree in their action or struggle for control through open-ended narratives.The paintings show complex figure arrangements absent of landscapes or objects. The selective overlapping of figures refers to both the conflict and the unity inherent in struggles for identity and agency.Balint Zsako was born in Hungary, grew up in Canada, and currently lives in Brooklyn. He studied fine art at Ryerson University in Toronto. His works are featured in Phaidon’s Vitamin D2 drawing anthology and are in the Permanent collections of the Nerman Museum, The Weatherspoon ArtMuseum and the Museum of Old and New Art. He was long listed for The Sobey Award, Canada's largest art prize in 2014.BloodOrangewillremainonviewthroughMarch5th,2017.
