Let Me Count the Ways I Love You
Lily Rosen

The fascination of dreams and memory is featured at the forefront of Lily Rosen's most recent body of work, and its representation is on par with other elements outlined in the textile pieces: joyful, naive, and cheeky.  This earthly garden of Eden is full of humor, as the artist manages to show nude bodies with the same delicate casualness as any other living being or object depicted in the work.  Without exploitation or shame, the playful scenes invite the viewer to enjoy and to nurture one's interior world.

Current exhibitions
Fantasia
by The Art Students League of New York

In its first Exhibition Outreach show with Chashama, The Art Students League of New York presents: Fantasia.

Fantasia is an eclectic series of works by League students working across a range of media. This show’s mixture of forms, like its musical namesake, celebrates spontaneity and the gathering of distinct styles to create harmony. This year's global health emergency has greatly impacted artists but has not drained their inspiration nor halted their practices. As the city slowly starts to reawaken, we invite you into the imaginations of artists who have continued composing through the pandemic.

There Is Too Much to Discuss
Lee Russell Holin

As a lifelong New Yorker and street artist for over a decade, Lee Holin has been able to witness first-hand the rapidly shifting landscape and expedited gentrification occurring in every usable corner of post-9/11 Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs. From SoHo to Brownsville, spaces once adorned with graffiti and urban art representing the voice of a neighborhood began to vanish, and along with them the inhabitants who could no longer afford to live there.

New Paintings
David Bender

The complex interconnectedness of everything. It's a pretty grandiose statement, but it's really just another way of saying that we are all connected; made from the same stuff that formed our Sun, Earth and the rest of the universe. The group of paintings that will be exhibited are about his presence in the universe.

Sonic Sunlight
Sasha vom Dorp

Vom Dorp brings you evidence of a minute history, in which no instance is petty and every instant too complex to perceive in its entirety. A moment is all time, an atom the universe. These photographs aim to capture the beauty and turmoil that occurs inside the most pedestrian events. Sunlight bounces on water, sound waves march toward oblivion.

Odyssey
Natalia Wróbel

In her paintings, Natalia Wróbel creates portals into liminal realms beyond our physical world.  Wróbel references ancient architecture, elements from nature, musical harmony and dissonance, neural networks, and mindfulness philosophy to elicit imagined, meditative pseudo-landscapes.

9 Months 2 Seasons
Myke Karlowski

Myke Karlowski’s work focuses on the passage of time and his own experiences with time-space synesthesia. The palette throughout the work translates moments and units of time into color. Routine layering and manipulation of the painting surface further exposes each piece to time through accumulation and erosion. Each painting is a journal of real and personal events and an artifact reflecting its own history of development.

Container
Abby Cheney

Container is an exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Brooklyn-based artist Abby Cheney. Her works, made from recycled cardboard, paper pulp, and found materials, explore the power of common objects in our everyday lives and memories. Cheney draws inspiration from decorative trends and domestic spaces to create surfaces layered with pattern and texture. Through weaving paper and cardboard, she constructs precarious and humorous forms referencing materials found in the home. Container investigates how we use emotion to assign value to objects and spaces regardless of material worth.
