Mixed Me­dia Yares Art Projects ex­pands its op­er­a­tion

Pasatiempo - - NEWS -

Yares Art Projects re­cently moved from its Grant Av­enue lo­ca­tion to a big­ger space in the Baca Arts District and is set to grow even fur­ther, with plans to open an ex­ten­sion, Yares Art, on 5th Av­enue and 57th Street in Man­hat­tan. The of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment comes at the re­cep­tion for the gallery’s 25th-an­niver­sary ex­hi­bi­tion. The core of that ex­hibit is a se­lec­tion of works by mem­bers of the Color Field school — in­clud­ing He­len Franken­thaler, Gene Davis, Larry Poons, and oth­ers — whose works, along with those of Ab­stract Ex­pres­sion­ists, have been the gallery’s fo­cus over the years. Yares also rep­re­sents the es­tate of Mil­ton Avery (1885-1965), an Amer­i­can mod­ernist whose work was in­flu­enced by Henri Matisse and who, in turn, in­flu­enced such artists as Mark Rothko and Adolph Got­tlieb. A spe­cial sec­tion of the an­niver­sary show is de­voted to Avery and to the fig­u­ra­tive bronzes of sculp­tor Manuel Neri. A solo ex­hi­bi­tion of Neri’s work is sched­uled to open at the gallery’s Man­hat­tan lo­ca­tion in the fall of this year.

The 25th-an­niver­sary show also fea­tures works by Sean Ca­vanaugh, Martin Cary Horowitz, Elias Rivera, Paul Pletka, and other gallery artists. It opens on Fri­day, July 29, with a re­cep­tion at 5:30 p.m. It is an evolv­ing ex­hi­bi­tion that re­mains on view through Sept. 17. The gallery is lo­cated at 1222 Flag­man Way. For more in­for­ma­tion, call Yares Art Projects at 505-984-0044. — Michael Abatemarco
