What: Opening Reception for ELLA YANG: NEW YORK SHINES
When: Thursday February 1, 2007, 6 – 8 PM
The exhibition runs through Sunday March 25, 2007
Please join us at an Artistsâ€™ reception for Ella Yang: New York Shines.
Underbridge Pictures is pleased to announce our first exhibition of oil paintings by Brooklyn based artist, Ella Yang. Her urban landscapes depict beloved locations and capture vibrant street scenes in both Brooklyn and Manhattan. Ms. Yang is included in the new book â€œ100 New York Painters,â€ by Cynthia Maris Dantzic, Schiffer Publishing Company, Fall 2006.
Based in Brooklyn, NY, Ms. Yang takes her cues from the world close by. Whether it is a gritty industrial street near her studio by the Gowanus Canal, a sidewalk in Park Slope, or the morning splendor of Union Square Park, she infuses her oil paintings with color and light while recording the (sometimes elusive) beauty of her subject. The paintings become infused with her own wonder and the delight of discovery. With degrees from both Yale and Columbia, she has pursued her painting career with further study in New York City. Her work stands beside that of Philip Pearlstein, George Tooker, Chuck Close, Alex Katz and many others in the new book â€œ100 New York Paintersâ€.
