"RETURN TO ME", SOLO EXHIBITION, equity GALLERY, lower east side, Nyc

EQUITY GALLERY
http://www.nyartistsequity.org/margaret-inga-urias-return-to-me

June 2 - July 15, 2017

Equity Gallery, 245 Broome Street, NY, NY 10002
Opening Reception: Friday, June 2, 6-8pm
Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Saturday, 12-6pm, and by appointment
Contact: info@nyartistsequity.org


Equity Gallery is pleased to present Return to Me, a solo exhibition by Margaret Inga Urías. The exhibition will be on view from June 2 through July 15, 2017, with a public opening reception on Friday, June 2, 6-8pm.

Urías presents glass sculptures, ink drawings, installations, and sound that explore the ethereal interconnectedness of existence, over vast expanses of time. Focusing on dust, from the cosmic to the quotidian, the works consider how entire worlds come from and return to this generative substance. If examined closely enough, the dust could tell the story of everything that ever existed.

The exhibition functions as a memory archive and cosmic timeline, following the small and the invisible from the beginnings of time, to the here-and-now. Upon entering the gallery, viewers will encounter glass blocks: intricate engravings, carved in thick, scientific glass, that delineate a complete mapping of the universe. Ink drawings on paper trace earthly detritus to their cosmic origins. Glass-panel engravings explore the history of dust particles in interstellar space. A soundscape of the interactions of electromagnetic particles from the solar wind, ionosphere, and various planets’ magnetospheres permeates through the gallery.

Urías’s art is rooted in research across the sciences, including planetary geology, cosmology, physics, and archeology. Spanning the macro to the micro, Urías presents, through dramatic shifts in scale, the beauty inherent in scientific fact. She examines how infinitesimally small particles connect us to our present, past, and future: how we are born of dust, how we return to it, and how we are all forever connected through it.

"RETURN TO ME", SOLO EXHIBITION, STRING ROOM GALLERY, Aurora, NEW YORK

www.wells.edu/string-room-gallery/return-me

November 11 - December 05, 2016
Reception from 4:30-6:30 pm
Artist's Talk at 5:00 pm

"Return to Me" features cosmologically-inspired drawings, photographs, engraved glass, large-scale murals, and sound. With meticulous detail, a stark black-and-white palette, and dramatic shifts in scale, Urías creates work inspired by her belief that dust, if examined closely enough, "could tell the story of everything that ever existed." This work speaks to both origination and aftermath, and is permeated by images of fragmentation, entropy, and the ethereal.

No More Place, A site-specific mural at 93 Market St, Newark, NJ

"No More Place" runs October 9-19 and features works of art from: Anna Ablogina, Hannes Bend, Patricia Dominguez, Glenn Fischer, Shanti Grumbine, Nicholas Hamilton, Samantha Holmes, Maria Hupfield, Tatiana Istomina, Tasha Lewis, Eleen Lin, Sharon Ma, Julie Nymann, Gamaliel Rodriguez, Sarah Rowe, Catherine Telford-Keogh, David Gregory Wallace, Margaret Inga Wiatrowski, Didier William, and Brian Zegeer.

This show will combine video installations, site-specific murals, sculpture, ceramics, photography, drawings, paintings, paper cuts, and collage by various artists from the New York area who met through The Bronx Museum's Artist-in-the-Marketplace (AIM) program in 2014.

The work interrogates the breakdown of spaces, structures, and hierarchies in contemporary cultures. The artists question what it means to be placed. To have a place. To be ranked. To have a certain identity. To be stable. To have a viewpoint, a location, an orientation. They use various media to respond to new technologies, personal and cultural narratives, and environmental shifts.

No More Place
October 9-19, 2014
Monday-Friday 1-5 PM; Saturday & Sunday 3-6 PM
93 Market Street is 7 blocks from Newark Penn Station and easily accessible by car and public transportation

Opening Friday, October 10 at 6:00pm - 10:00pm, in conjunction with Gallery Aferro.

City Without Walls Gallery: Unsteady Ground 

http://www.cwow.org/event/unsteady-ground-what-drawing

August 22, 2013 to September 28, 2013

In the same way that live performance brings light to the written word, drawing is invested with emotion. This heightened articulation, this deep looking that is drawing changes a presumed space into hyper-real representation of what is hidden to the casual looker. Perhaps the oldest drawings known to us are cave paintings. Unsteady Ground is an attempt to show a group of artists whose work is a portion of this wide variety of drawing, the continuation of an ancient human impulse.

I am so pleased to be a recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. The Pollock-Krasner Foundation was established in 1985 for the sole purpose of providing financial assistance to individual visual artists of established ability through the generosity of the late Lee Krasner, a leading abstract expressionist painter and the widow of Jackson Pollock.

Since 1985, the New York Foundation for the Arts has been supporting emerging artists through its prestigious fellowship program, which has buoyed now-celebrated figures from Andres Serrano to Christian Marclay when they were still unknowns. Today Artspace is proud to announce a historic partnership with NYFA, offering work by more recent recipients of its fellowships—offering members a chance to collect promising artists at critical points in their careers.
