Barbara Marks and Joe Sultan
For the summer 2021 season, Susan Eley Fine Art, Hudson presents a series of three exhibitions, each fostering an intimate and dynamic dialogue between two artists based in the greater Hudson Valley region. Selected for the aesthetic, material and/or conceptual concerns resonating within and between their practices—the artist pairings are Jim Napierala and Lisa Pressman; Katharine Dufault and Sarah Lutz; and Barbara Marks and Joe Sultan. Each artist shines independently; then, contextualized alongside one another, their works manifest both interstices and interconnections.
The third exhibition in SEFA Hudson’s summer series features intimately-scaled paintings and drawings of abstracted structures by Barbara Marks and architectonic wooden sculptures by Joe Sultan. Marking its first anniversary in Upstate NY this summer, along with its participation as a headlining gallery in The Hudson Eye Festival—SEFA is pleased to exhibit recent works by regional artists Marks and Sultan.
