A Weekend in the Country Curated by Paul
June 18 – August 7, 2015

Magnan Metz Gallery is proud to announce
the opening of A Weekend in the Country,
a group exhibition of contemporary artists
Jude Broughan​, Ernesto Caivano, Anthony
Goicolea​, Ellen Harvey​, Jason Middlebrook​,
Donna Moylan​ and Spencer Tunick​, curated
by Paul Laster.

Together, these artists explore a dialogue
between landscape and abstraction.

A visit to Donna Moylan’s magnificently
restored 1820s’ residence in Kinderhook, NY
and an awe-inspired viewing of Rob
Marshall’s 2014 musical film Into the
Woods, reminded the curator of how
marvelously the compositions of Stephen
Sondheim addresses contemporary times
and brought his thoughts back to
Sondheim’s whimsical tune “A Weekend in
the Country,” which plays particularly well
with the ironic engagement of nature in
these seven artists’ works.

Donna Moylan makes psychologically
charged, metaphysical paintings rich with
abstract elements; Jason Middlebrook uses
natural forms as a ground for his painterly
explorations of geometric abstraction;
Anthony Goicolea pushes painting and
drawing into romantic, architectural realms
in his magical, double-sided works on Mylar
mounted on boards; and Ellen Harvey
investigates history and geography in her
aerial views of ruins married with abstract
