SCOPE Basel Art Show 2010 FIRST VIEW FOR VIPs June 15 3 to 7 PM GENERAL FAIR HOURS: June 16 to June 19 11 am to 7 pm

For its inaugural exhibition at SCOPE Basel 2010, Micaëla Gallery (USA) introduces the following artists: Marvin Lipofsky, Nicole Schmoelzer, Lorraine Peltz, Prema Murthy, Tim Tate, Scott Kildall, Silvia Levenson. Firmly planted in the 21st century, our gallery program embraces the enriched vernacular provided by contemporary fine art approaches to drawing, painting, and sculpture. With an exhibition of digital drawings (Murthy), explorations of light (Lipofsky, Schmoelzer), and dialogue addressing social concerns (Levenson, Tate, Kildall), Micaëla Gallery presents an introduction to Basel of artworks that are beautiful to regard as they engage the intellect. Each artist was carefully chosen because of singular contributions to contemporary visual dialogues. Lorraine Peltz' work is a continuing discussion of feminine ideas in a fresh, beautiful manner in relation to place and identity. Her vernacular uses recognizable, highly charged images that explore women's fantasies and desires. Peltz' mimicry and reconciliation of how information comes to us and how meaning is made -- real life alongside memory, poetry next to prose -- become the landscapes of her exterior world and an interior space of dream, desire, hope, and memory. Images of chandeliers, among others, co-mingle the language of 17th century-esque still-life objects and pop imageries of lightening bolts, puffy clouds, painted lips, ominous blackbirds, and more. Peltz received her MFA from the University of Chicago. She lives and works in Chicago and teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. IMAGE: Lorraine Peltz.
