Tried, True and Moving Forward!

The Galatea OnLine Gallery

April 29, 2020
6th Edition

The floodgates swung open and 460B Harrison's galleries and businesses on the very bottom floor swam under water. There were drying machines everywhere, and what could have been a total disaster was only a partial one, thanks to the quick action by GTI, our landlords, and the marvelous crew hired to save these spaces.

Galatea has its angels as well, those members rushing in to remove artwork and whatever else could be saved in our gallery. Much was spared water damage, but there were many stored pieces that were damaged as well as other components of our space.

When it is safe to enter, you can be sure that we will be there moving forward and continuing our lively exhibition schedule, and we will keep you updated.

In the meantime our artists are working diligently in their home studios and have lots to share, so w e present the  Galatea OnLine Gallery . There is a new group of work featured every week, so scroll down and enjoy.

Also, be sure to visit our Artsy page at to view our April and May members' work.

Again, we appreciate all the support and love that you have shared with us over the last decade and look forward to moving beyond this with you. We are happy to work with you on a purchase of artwork shown here, or answer any questions you might have. In this time when artists of all genres are struggling to keep their practice going, your support is especially valued.

For sales inquiries , please contact Marjorie Kaye, Director at The artist will be happy to ship the work to you at a cost to be determined.

To all , and in particular the SOWA community, artists of all kinds, and those that support us, we are strong and will survive. May all blessings, health, happiness, strength, wisdom, art and love be our gift.

Youngsheen Jhe explores the effect of consumerism on our sense of ourselves. An eerie glow creates a stage for the main figure, as she sports a neutral visage.

Mysterious and spaciously layered, this photograph by Crystal Woodward celebrates times of contemplation. The wheels temporarily stop turning, and
our gaze turns outward.

Crystal Woodward, Dare We Touch, Shall We Breathe? , Photograph, 9 x 12 inches, 2018, $450.00
Diana Zipeto fractures Lady Liberty and so examines the loss of solidarity in our country. We are a nation divided. Diana has an extensive body of work on this matter.

Diana Zipeto, LIberty X: Theaters of Trouble , Acrylic on Canvas, 36 x 48 inches, 2020, $3,200.00
Agusta Agustsson's compositions teem with textural references to the juxtaposition of color. The organic and geometric come together in an electric synergy.

Agusta Agustsson, Fumarole, Fiber, 61 x 67 inches, 2020, $3,000.00
Clare Asch's work is sacred geometry in a gentle hand. These shapes seem to be magnetically linked together, each circle bound to each other to create a portal in the center.

Clare Asch, Convergence 25 , Watercolor, 20 x 20 inches, 2020, $600.00
This piece by Lola Baltzell reminisces the energy of the classic "Take the A Train", as avenues bustle all through the surface. Done during the quiet and solitude of the Pandemic distancing, the painting yearns for the bustling of interpersonal experience.

Lola Baltzell, Such Teachings as These , Encaustic, 16 x 20 inches, 2020, $800.00
Christina Beecher has painted an atmospheric and beautiful, dreamlike painting. We are transported out of the confines of the present into a vast and promising future.

Christina Beecher, Promises , Oil Painting, 12 x 16 inches, 2019, $600.00
Jo-Ann Boback's painting is anything but static, with boundless energetic movement from one area to the next; even the quieter outer boundaries are teeming with life. However, in this almost restless movement is a searching, not unlike the act of being shaken before a moment of profound understanding.

Jo-Ann Boback, Time is Like Confetti , Mixed Media, 60 x 48 inches, 2017, $2,500.00
