THIS MONTH’S THEME: ART AND ARTISTS IN VR/AR/MR
THIS MONTH'S PRESENTERS:
CARRIE ABLE | www.carrieablegallery.com
Carrie Able is a Brooklyn based visual artist, poet and musician. She specializes in oil on linen paintings and has exhibited extensively from the Honolulu Museum of Art to the Toledo Museum of Art. Her work has been printed in publications such as the National Geographic Traveler and private collections worldwide exhibit Able’s paintings. In March 2018, Able had a solo exhibition at Volta Art Fair.
In 2016 Able published her first book of poetry entitled “Painted Poetry”. On Sept 20th, 2017 Carrie Able’s debut solo album “frequency” was released on Itunes, Google Play, Amazon and Spotify, and celebrated with a performance at the Bowery Electric in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Jukely describes Able as a “haunting singer-songwriter and guitarist”. While many say they have never heard anything like Able’s music, it has also been described as a link between The Doors, Patti Smith, and Lou Reed.
As internationally recognized artist, poet and musician, Carrie Able was a keynote speaker at the Kristal Elma Festivali in Istanbul on Oct 5th, 2017.
Able is currently an artist in residence at Jump into the Light in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. While VR painting technology is a new cutting edge media, Able has been working with oil on linen for over twenty years. A working portrait artist by the age of 14, Able’s earliest work focused on realism in the renaissance masters oil technique. However, her oil works of the past 8 years have increasingly danced the line between representative and abstract. Using no external visual references, imported files or sound bites, the artist creates directly from subconscious mind to hand.
Carrie Able Gallery opened in September 2016 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The gallery showcases the work of Able, amongst the most exciting emerging visual artists. The gallery also represents emerging to established contemporary artists. While a commercial gallery, Carrie Able Gallery is mission based with several community art programs including a free kids class for 8-12 year olds.
