SAID I MEANT | May 11 - June 9, 2019

I will have several new works in Said I Meant curated by JoAnne McFarland and Sasha Chavchavadze. Said I Meant, a play on the word sediment, is an exhibition of work by thirteen artists and writers that explores the griefs and joys we leverage in order to feel most alive. During this period of tremendous social, environmental, and technological transition, how do we use our histories to live wholeheartedly in the present and plan for the future?

Said I Meant is one of a series of sediment-related exhibitions and events taking place in May/June 2019 in Gowanus Brooklyn, where the Gowanus Canal, one of the most toxic bodies of water in the United States, is currently being dredged of century-old commercial runoff.

The opening reception is May 11th and 12th from 1-5pm and the exhibition will be up through June 9th by appointment.

543 Union Street, Studio 2B, Brooklyn, NY

WOMEN EMPOWERING WOMEN | July 28 - September 27, 2018

WE: Women Empowering Women, a group exhibition co-curated by Kara Hoblin and Anne Sherwood Pundyk, carries forward the spirit of women supporting each other in their creative endeavors. The curators will present outstanding work by artists from Brooklyn, New York City, and Long Island including the East End. As with the curators themselves many of the artists in the exhibition are involved in serious, self-organized artist communities such as Brooklyn-based Lady Painters and the North Fork Art Collective.

Artist communities have traditionally played an important role in the forging of aesthetic movements, from Impressionism to the New York School. As more women take leadership roles in creative communities their influence can be seen in the development of diverse, high caliber artwork cultivated in an unbiased environment. Recent examples of this include 179 Canal, The Yams Collective, and CRUSH CURATORIAL. The artwork presented in WE: Women Empowering Women similarly demonstrates the results of deep individual exploration undertaken within in a critically supportive community.

I had the chance to speak with Sally Deskins, founder of Les Femmes Folles, about my newest series of work on view at VSOP Projects, my background, collaboration, and my residency at Trestle Gallery. Click here to read the full article!


I will be giving an artist talk about my work in "White Paintings" on view at VSOP Projects. The exhibition will be up through May 21st!

VSOP Projects
311 Front Street, Greenport, NY


VSOP Projects is pleased to present "White Paintings", an exhibition of new works by Brooklyn and Long Island-based painter Jacqueline Ferrante. The exhibition will be on view April 21 - May 21, 2018. 

Over the past 8 years, Ferrante has produced abstract paintings and photographs that investigate and mimic surfaces in our natural and built environments as they evolve as a result of accumulation, erosion, and decay. Foregoing the use of a paintbrush, Jacqueline favors the palette knife and non-traditional tools to layer, rub, splatter, and strip paint from her canvases.

While typically bold and adventurous in her explorations of color, Ferrante has chosen a more subdued palette to work from in these newest works, created while on residency at Brooklyn's Trestle Gallery. A spectrum of blue, pink, yellow, green, and violet underpaintings are all but rendered invisible with white and earth-toned surfaces. Rather than the density of the urban environment that she tends to portray, these new paintings are more suggestive of the earliest brimmings of Spring mosses, barks, and lichens.
