Tonight: New Paintings by Rachel Ritchford

Rachel_Ritchford_1_webContinuing a rotating series of exhibitions, The Yard presents “New Paintings” by Rachel Ritchford.

“It was odd, she thought, how if one was alone, one leant to inanimate things; trees, streams, flowers; felt they expressed one; felt they became one; felt they knew one, in a sense were one; felt an irrational tenderness thus (she looked at that long steady light) as for oneself.” ― Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

Rachel Ritchford was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Reception Thursday, Jan 14th, 6-8pm at The Yard
33 Nassau Ave. 2nd Floor (Above Spritzenhaus)

Opening Tonight: Nature is Ancient at The Yard

Meg Wachter

Inspired by the sounds of Björk, Meg Wachter brings the Icelandic landscape to photographic life in Nature is Ancient, a hyperballad of big time sensuality in hidden places, somewhere between human behavior and pagan poetry. Did you get all those greatest hit references? Did you? When she’s not trekking along mountains and volcanoes, Wachter has one hand in Brooklyn Skillshare and the other in Got a Girl Crush. Don’t miss tonight’s vespertine (!) reception at The Yard, from 6-9pm; if you can’t make it, take a peek at photos from her visit here.
