Mulherin + Pollard moves to LES!

John Pollard of ADA Gallery in Richmond, Virginia and Katharine Mulherin of Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects in Toronto, both veterans of the New York art world via fairs, joined together to battle The Big Apple in The Big Apple this past June. Not content with their new zip code, Mulherin and Pollard have uprooted their new venture and have brought their team spirit into the heart of the Bowery, opening Mulherin + Pollard at the end of Freeman's Alley (at Rivington between Chrystie & Bowery). Opening exhibit features work by Nina Bovasso, Bruce Wilhelm, Sojourner Truth Parsons, and Winnie Truong.

Double Feature at Mulherin Pollard Project

Indulge in two great shows at one spot!
Reception May 6th from 6-8om



Bovasso's work can be found in the collections of: Collectie KPN, Netherlands; The New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, NY; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; JP Morgan/ Chase Bank, New York, NY; MoMA, New York, NY; Deutsche Bank, NY/DE; among others. Her work has also been reviewed in Art Forum, The New York Times, Art in America, and TImeOut NY.

Nina’s drawings are so serious and so seriously fun.They’ll grab you by your arm hairs with decisive patterns and purpose driven colors then hold you close with dark seductive undertones. Mounds, legs, patterns in turmoil, all somehow intently interacting and morphing with their human counterparts, or parts of human counterparts.

Recent exhibits of his work are Scope Basel Switzerland 2008 with ADA Gallery, Pass Me the Muster which included artists from The Royal Art Lodge in Meyers Gallery at The University of Cincinnati DAAP 2008,Side Effects May Vary at ADA Gallery 2008, and Action.Stop.Action at Vox Populi in Philadelphia 2008. Wilhelm currently lives and works in Philadelphia.
Asked to describe his latest series of paintings, "Airlock", Bruce says, "My recent work spans the distance from Shopenhauer's black box to Carl Sagan's Cosmos turned pizza box. Fueled by stoner thought experiments, I can make it to the megaliths of Mars."

Nina Bovasso and Bruce Wilhelm at Mulherin Pollard Projects

Join us for the reception Friday May 6th from 6-8pm at Mulherin Pollard Projects

Nina Bovasso's What's Your Bubble? and Bruce Wilhelm's Airlock

Nina Bovasso presents a new series of small works on paper where her signature densely constructed, colorful, abstract ‘mound’ form is given levity with the addition of legs and feet appropriated from the human form, Disney and Breughel.

Richmond, Virgina born artist Bruce Wilhelm’s latest series of paintings take their inspiration from Shopenhauer's black box to Carl Sagan's Cosmos, turned pizza box. In Wilhelm’s psychedelic landscapes, he hopes to take the viewer to the megaliths of Mars.

This exhibition of two artists’ one-person shows, will be Mulherin and Pollard’s final exhibit at our Tenth Avenue space. A new Lower East Side location is soon to be announced.
