Bridgette Mayer Gallery is pleased to announce its participation for a second year in Art Miami 2011, Miami's premiere anchor art fair.
This year, Bridgette Mayer Gallery will exhibit an exciting mix of secondary market works alongside cutting-edge painting, photography and sculpture from the Gallery's contemporary program. Artists include: Neil Anderson, Charles Burwell, Jim Dine, Sam Francis, German Gomez, Eileen Neff, Kenneth Noland, Paul Oberst, David Slovic, Pat Steir, and Steve Tobin.
In this show of nine recent paintings, "Structuring Desire/Desiring Structure," Charles Burwell offered no quiet moments. The title suggests a mind comfortable with systems of order, such as those found in math and science. But Burwell's visual world, which comprises overlapping shapes and striated hues, is brilliant and delightful. While we think of scientific investigations as somber and labored, Burwell's abstract structures, replete with optical effects, dazzle the eye, prompting viewers to check and recheck what they see.
In 2009-2010, Bridgette Mayer Gallery placed over 200 original artworks by 27 artists throughout Alter Hall at Temple University's Fox School of Business. On the occasion of the University's Art Collection Dedication on October 13, 2010, the Gallery produced a fully illustrated catalogue of the artworks in the Collection. Please contact the gallery for information on purchasing a copy of the catalogue.

Art of the City Soirée with Artist Charles Burwell
In conjunction with Procession: The Art of Norman Lewis, this program will highlight – and perhaps complicate – the reality of being a black artist in Philadelphia in the 1960s and 1970s. What were the challenges? What were the unique opportunities? How is the Philadelphia art world of today different – or not – from those realities?
Panelists will use their own lives and careers to address these issues and make connections to the larger urban art world context in which Norman Lewis worked. Panelists include Moe Brooker, Martha Jackson Jarvis and Charles Burwell, in conversation with A.M. Weaver.
Gallery artist Charles Burwell was included in the exhibition "Faculty Selects" at the Grossman Gallery at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. The exhibition runs from Nov. 6 - Dec. 19 with an opening reception on Nov. 5 at 4:30.
