Group Exhibition: The Feminine Sublime

Georges Bergès Gallery
SoHo, New York City
April – May 2019

It is the creative power implicit in Krutick’s imaginative response to nature’s innate aesthetics, at their most ingeniously and irresistibly dynamic in the flowing ocean. One might say she abstracts the creative flow of nature from its material manifestation in moving water, treating it as an aesthetic phenomenon in itself.
— Donald Kuspit, Guest Curator

The Georges Bergès Gallery opens the Spring season with a very rare opportunity to experience an exhibition from world-renowned art critic and historian Donald Kuspit. Few critics within the art world have the intellectual and historic weight that Kuspit has—a lion of the art world.

The Feminine Sublime exhibition highlights and explores seven female abstract artists in contemporary art: Alex Chowaniec, Carol Brown Goldberg, Hisako Kobayashi, Jill Krutick, Carol Ross, Sonia Stark, Marlene Yu and Kristin Jai Klosterman. Don’t miss this very rare opportunity to see first hand the curatorial work of Donald Kuspit this Spring. Jill Krutick will be one of six of the featured artists. She is exhibiting “The Giving Tree, 5, 2019” and “Ice Cube Black & Red, 2016,” and “Shangri La 6, 2017.”
