Art Gallery Essay

In completion of this assignment the art gallery that I chose to visit was Mark Gallery in Englewood New Jersey. When you walk up to the establishment there are floor to ceiling glass windows that allow you to see everything inside. Facing the gallery there were so many colors that enticed you to enter. The arrangements and art work was spaced out nicely not causing clutter. This allowed you to individually take in each piece on by itself. All of the pieces were very nice but the artist that caught my attention was Mr. Mark Oberndorf.
Oberndorf was born in New York but is currently residing in Bergren County New Jersey. He is a contemporary realist painter. Since the age of 10 he has been interested in the visual arts. At an early age some of his beginning works were illustrating his school yearbook to painting murals on his elementary school building. From 1995 to present Oberndorf has had art in various group and solo exhibitions and galleries. Currently his work is currently represented by Mark Gallery of Englewood New Jersey and Westwood Gallery in Westwood New Jersey.
I found several of his pieces interesting because they were so basic. Not meaning they did not have levels or dimensions but they put me in the mind of simpler times and relatable memories. His pieces display three dimensional effects on a two dimensional surface with natural lighting effects. All painting are created with oil on linen canvass. Such pieces as the “Wyckoff Train Station”, “Dairy Queen” and “Gas” all represent the Bergren County area and parts of New York prior to the gentrification phase.
“Gas” depicts an old two pump station as you would see it in the 1970’s. The piece of the “Dairy Queen” shows the classic franchise that was shaped somewhat of a barn prior to the new modernized look you may see today. I can remember as a kid having one of these in our neighborhood. We frequently visited it for a Sunday cone after attending

    Kelsey Roth Art gallery report 4/23/13 At the art gallery where everyone wanted to show off their art, Paul Wilson wanted to see how good their security was while everyone was at the show; so he called up a couple of his friends, Jason, Lisa, and Jennifer, and they mapped out a plan so they could steal someone’s painting while replacing it with a portrait that looks the same. So they ended up catering the event, serving food and drinks to people that were at the show; then they would put everyone…

    Canova, Psyche Awakened by Cupid’s Kiss, Neoclassical (18th c) When looking at Psyche Awakened by Cupid’s Kiss, I am able to see plenty of movement and rhythm. This sculpture shows rhythm through the mans wings as they seem to be high in the air as well as the women’s arms as she reaches to wrap her arms around the mans head. There is also rhythm in this sculpture as shown by the wings and the draping pieces of clothes. This is an example of rhythm because it draws your eyes from one part of the…

    address a behaviour or technical problem. Coercive power also exists from a lateral perceptive, in the form of peer pressure. In the case of “Nirvana Art Gallery”, Nelly had legitimate power as Research manager. She used her coercive power abusively to obtain her own personal agenda. She was not using her power for the “good” of the art gallery, which is how a superior should be using any power in particular coercive power. 2. Organizational politics is conduct by a person that others see as…

    Describe a visit to an art gallery When I visited my brother who lives in Australia, he took me to a must-visit place -- the National Art Gallery. Selva knew I was an amateur painter and hence, loved all types of paintings such as still-life abstract and others. It was the beginning of spring when I arrived in Canberra. The temperature was about 17 degrees Celsius and though my brother did not require warm clothing, I was all wrapped up -- it was just too cold for me coming from a hot country like…

    I went to the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas, located on 3275 Industrial road (major cross-street Desert Inn) which opened in August of 2008. At the museum it holds, erotic art, exhibits, different timelines and a lot of illustrated history of erotica. There were many tasteful pieces of artwork, whether it be painting, magazine covers, posters, figures, and sculptures. I was also very excited to have actually seen the piece called “Venus of Willendorf” that is featured in our book on page 164…
