Brooklyn, NY – 440 Gallery presents Tumbled Sky, an exhibition of mixed- media prints by veteran printmaker Gail Flanery. Flanery’s signature imagery draws from nature—much of it is suggestive of landscape but the geography is rarely specific. Flanery’s landscapes are invented, inverted, re-imagined and animated by lush color and an expansive sense of space. In this exhibition, Flanery channels nature’s turbulence as her gaze shifts upward, toward the sky.
Flanery is a graduate of Cooper Union where she was influenced by the painter and colorist Wolf Kahn. She has worked with a number of master printers and presently works at the shop of Master Printer Kathy Caraccio. Flanery’s work is in dozens of private and corporate collections, and is in the permanent collection of the Jane Vorhees Zimmerli Art Museum. Flanery has exhibited extensively, and press credits include The New York Times.
Flanery will give an artist's talk on Sunday, September 18 at 4:40pm. All are welcome.
The 440 Gallery is in Park Slope, convenient to the F, G, and R. The gallery is open Thursday and Friday, 4–7pm, Saturday and Sunday, 11am–7pm, or by appointment. Check the gallery's website, www.440gallery.com, for events and more information.
