Matthew Rachman Gallery is pleased to announce the next exhibition of its 2017 lineup, "Paintings by Jeffrey Cortland Jones + Sara Pittman." The Gallery will host an opening reception Friday, April 14 from 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm. Both artists will be in attendance. 

Although discernibly different in appearances, artists Jeffrey Cortland Jones and Sara Pittman tackle similiar themes in their individual explorations of life through art. Both artists have are introverted and intuitive approach to making; acting on raw, observed feeling. The juxtaposition of detail in Pittman's pieces and the subtle minimalism in Jones's work creates a harmonious exchange about what happens at the moment that conscious contemplation breaks down.

The exhibition will run April 14 - May 28, 2017.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Sunday 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
