WILLIAMSBURG SALON at the Amarin Café
THE WILLIAMSBURG ART & HISTORICAL CENTER invites you to a one person show by a member of the art club. "WILLIAMSBURG SALON"
Aimee C. Hertog
October 16-December 4
Opening Friday, October 21, 6-8 p.m.
Ms. Hertog assembles her pieces with found objects, incorporating them in her surrealistic - fantastic sculpture, drawings and installations. Materials she uses include resin, glitter, ink, sponges, cotton balls and discarded baby toys that used to belong to her son. Motherhood has given a new tone to her art, which is now often bright and playful. She is not afraid of color, and many of her pieces reflect the influence of transcendent art of Miro and Calder.
Ms. Hertog was in a group show at the Alpan Gallery in Huntington, New York juried by former New York Times critic Phyllis Braff. This summer her work was chosen to be included in a show juried by the chief curator of the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C. Her work was selected for the summer Birdhouse show at the Kathleen Ewing Gallery, also in Washington D.C. This past year, Ms. Hertog’s art was prominently featured in the now defunct Gallery 49 in Manhattan and was featured at the Heidi Cho Gallery, also in Manhattan. She currently has two-dimensional work on display at Pierogi Gallery in Williamsburg. She was featured earlier this fall in a one-person show at Local Project Art Gallery in Long Island City.
