New York, NY.  Porter Contemporary presents Transitions, a group exhibition combining works by Elise Freda, Jill Gewirtz and Joyce Pommer from June 28, 2017 through September 29, 2017 at The Yard. An opening reception to the public with the artists will be held on Wednesday, June 28, from 5 - 8 PM.

Through the perspectives of 3 artists--Elise Freda, Jill Gewirtz and Joyce Pommer--Transitions explores the idea of process, gateways, and change.  Elise Freda, a painter from Callicoon, NY creates paintings and works on paper that weave layers of artistic process into bursts of color exploring nature and abstraction. Jill Gewirtz, a New York City native, captures the varying landscape of the city through a series of photographs of doors. Each door a gateway into a different neighborhood.  Joyce Pommer, also based in New York City, creates paintings that come alive physically and emotionally using space and layers of materials to transition the viewer to a sense of fragility.

Exhibitions at The Yard, City Hall Park are part of a series of shows curated by Jessica L. Porter, owner of Porter Contemporary.  Previews of Transitions are available by appointment beginning June 5, 2017.
