About Private Public Gallery
Founder and Owner Christopher Freeman developed Private Public in the heart of Hudson NY, as a center for Artists and Art Professionals to show Large Scale Work. His interest is to bring significant Art to his bourgeoning Community.
“This show is packed with powerhouse painters whose work has the extraordinary quality of sharing, like a subconscious memory transplant.”
About “I Remember… Remember?”
“I Remember… Remember?” is the second exhibition for this new gallery, which represents significant contemporary work in the Hudson Valley area.
Dates: December 18th, 2021 to February 3rd, 2022
Opening Reception: December 18th from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Within all the work presented in this exhibition, there is the sense that these artists are using memory as a framework. Some work with the immediate past, and some with memories from a lifetime ago, but that framework is visceral and as strong as a windstorm. All works are heavily emotional, with spiritually charged sensibilities resulting from a new movement of how to approach what is left of what exists. This work is not sentimental, the work is unrestrained.
The show runs until February 3rd, 2022.
About the Opening of 95 NORTH
Private / Public is pleased to announce its Premier Opening Exhibition entitled 95 NORTH. This group show conceived by Michael Klein, Art Historian and former Curator for the Microsoft Art Collection.
Private / Public was scheduled to open in May of 2020 right when Covid-19 swept through our lives and seized the world we knew. Suddenly we were horizonless and became suspended in uncertainty. Then we dispersed.
But Klein has found eloquence within the exodus from NYC, to the mountains along 95 North. He’s thinking about the future. He’s thinking we are all within new beginnings and new openings, and as he explains: Art is being made everywhere, no longer just in the five boroughs. So while 95 North acts as a lifeline, for an amazing range of art and artists, it is also the thread between our driving force to create and a testament to our shared efforts to carry on.
On view will be work by Jonathan Borofsky, Richmond Burton, Jackie Ferrara, Jene Highstein, Frank Holliday, Kathryn Lynch, Robert Moskowitz, Matt Mullican, Katherine Porter, and Marjorie Strider. Different generations have different styles but a notable assessment of the depth and variety of contemporary American Art that has moved on from the big city to find itself plugged into spaces with more room to think and feel.
This show will include these ten artists:
- Jonathan Borofsky
- Richmond Burton
- Jackie Ferrara
- Jene Highstein
- Frank Holliday
- Kathryn Lynch
- Robert Moskowitz
- Matt Mullican
- Katherine Porter
- Marjorie Strider
