A solo exhibit of Edith Borax-Morrison's work titled "Monoliths and Magic" will be on view at Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven from February 16 through March 19, 2017.

Running concurrently is a solo exhibit of paintings by Frank Bruckmann titled "Studio Still Lifes." There is an opening reception on Saturday, March 11 from 3 pm - 6 pm, with artist talks at 5 pm.

Morrison's bio on Kehler Liddell's website states, "Edith's work is her identity. It is consistent, compulsive, with meticulous attention to detail. Each abstract drawing that is rendered in pen and ink, contains a series of intricate interwoven lines or circles or marks creating a unique maze like image. She calls her artwork "Mind fibers" or "Penweave " drawings. They are influenced by surreal, mystical, and psychological elements from the past. She is fascinated with weaving, hair,  fairy tales, myths, and  primitive societies. Edith finds her work is all consuming and at any hour day or night she may find herself at the drawing board working steadily on the piece until she is satisfied it is finished and has merit.

Edith received a MA degree from C.W. Post College, Greenvale, New York. She also studied at Art Students League in NY and with Paul Margin art studio in Hempstead, NY."

Regular gallery hours are Thursday and Friday 11 am - 4 pm, Saturday and Sunday 10 am - 4 pm. Kehler Liddell Gallery is located at 873 Whalley Avenue, New Haven, CT. 

Edith Borax-Morrison and Keith Johnson: 2 solo shows at Kehler Liddell Gallery, New Haven

Edith Borax -Morrison and Keith Johnson are featured in simultaneous solo exhibitions at Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven from April 19 - May 20, 2012.

Morrison's exhibit of abstract ink drawings is titled "Alternative Pathways." Her drawings range from geometric studies to sinuous organic forms which intertwine on paper.

Johnson's exhibit of photographs is "Recent Work." Johnson's use of the grid in his "Extended Landscapes" led to his current work. Some photographs are completely abstract, and others use familiar objects as elements that form patterns in the larger work. Water surfaces, the sky and airplanes are recurrent motifs.

Both exhibits open on Sunday, April 22, from 3:30 - 6:30 pm with live music by Notattoos from 5:00 - 6:30 pm. Morrison and Johnson will also be speaking about their work.

Kehler Liddell Gallery is located at 873 Whalley Avenue, New Haven, CT.

Painter Gerald Saladyga and sculptor Joseph Saccio are in a two-person show titled "Site Unseen" that will be exhibited from November 4-December 5, 2010 at Kehler Liddell Gallery, New Haven. There is an opening reception on Sunday, November 5 from 3-6 pm with an artist talk at 3 pm. 

Saladyga's work is intriguingly minimalist with strong use of graphic symbols. He consciously redefines landscape in his artist statement on his website.

Edith Borax-Morrison is showing recent drawings at Kehler Liddell Gallery, New Haven from August 19-September 26, 2010. Also showing are new paintings and pastels by Lisa Hess Hesselgrave. There will be an artist reception on Sunday, September 12 from 3-6 pm with an artist talk at 3 pm.

Morrison's ink drawings are simultaneously explosive and controlled. She has characterized her work as "mind fibers", and her titles give insight into the concepts behind each drawing. Her meticulously executed abstract forms seem to undulate on the paper on which they are drawn.

From the press release: "Morrison’s works relate to Gego’s wire sculptures and Escher’s drawings, or more recently to the work of James Siena.  They reference influences from both Eastern and Western culture, including African masks, folklore and memory, beaded jewelry and maps."

Kehler Liddell Gallery is located at 873 Whalley Ave., New Haven, CT.

"Size Matters" is a salon-style exhibition that features some relatively small works and full scale art in a wide array of prices, geared toward holiday art sales. A portion of proceeds will benefit Child Life Arts and Enrichment Program at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital.
