press release






October 13th - November 5th, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, October 13th, 2017 7-9 PM 

Studio10 is pleased to present IN&OUT, a pairing of Kate Teale and Marcy Rosewater paintings curated by Brittany Prater. While the pieces of Teale and Rosewater are markedly different, both bodies of work reflect a quiet slowness that can be found in architectural spaces when glimpsed in the absence of humans. The paintings use recognizable imagery, simplified to near abstraction. One invites spacial penetration, while the other denies it.

Teale works with layers of pure primary colors. She uses transparency to build up her images, allowing the white of the surface to shine as the brightest part of her composition. This gives her paintings of night windows a luminous quality that is reminiscent of Seurat.

Rosewater’s works are composed of dense volumetric forms that explore rich and complex relationships of shape, color and edge. Painting on location, her work often depicts static moments found in utilitarian spaces.

This is Teale’s third show with Studio10. She has had solo shows in New York, Philadelphia, Amherst, Albany, Kalamazoo and the UK and has participated in group shows in Brooklyn and NYC. Teale was a NYFA Fellow in Painting in 2008 and Joan Mitchell Foundation artists’ grant recipient in 2014. She teaches Studio Art at Parsons School of Design.


Rosewater was the recipient of the Golden Foundation Fellowship and a resident at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, both in 2017. Her work will be included in Art from the Boros at Denise Bibros Fine Art in Chelsea  and SRO Gallery in Brooklyn this fall. She was a recognized at this year’s Bushwick  Open Studios by both Hyperallergic and Two Coats of Paint. This is her first show with Studio 10. 


STUDIO10 is located at 56 Bogart Street, Brooklyn.  

Gallery hours: Thursday through Sunday 1-6 pm or by appointment.
