At City Gallery, It’s Only A PART OF THE STORY

Featuring artist Michael Zack

In a sense, artist Michael Zack is asking you to fill in the blanks as he exhibits A PART OF THE STORY at New Haven’s City Gallery. His haunting, figurative work will be on display from March 11 - March 27, with an opportunity to Meet the Artist on Sunday, March 13 from 1pm - 4 pm.
Focusing on the relationships and interaction of figures and how they can be expressed in form and color, Zack eschews facial features and clothing detail in his work. The characters become anyone and everyone, yet uniquely individual and somewhat mysterious.
Are they people you know? Are they people the artist knows? Zack never reveals names, but says, “they are frequently, but not always based on people I know and have had the opportunity to observe as they go about their daily lives.”
Taken out of those contexts and rearranged into a panorama that has a narrative all its own, Zack invites you, the viewer, to interpret them on yourself. “Bearing in mind,” he says, “that each image is only part of the story.”
The interrelationships of the figures and the movement within the panoramas are supported by the vibrant, subtle and nuanced range of colors within the work. As to process, Zack explains, “Because of the pandemic, access to the printmaking studio has been restricted. I have been trying to translate what I have been doing in printmaking to painting. Each medium has its own distinct process and that process is instrumental in determining the direction of each work.”
Zack received his art education at The Brooklyn Museum Art School, The Silvermine School of Art and Creative Arts Workshop. His work has been shown at City Gallery in New Haven, The Silvermine Guild Arts Center in New Canaan, where he is a member, The New Haven Paint and Clay Club, the Community Gallery of the Brooklyn Museum, the Attleboro Museum in Attleboro, MA, the Paul Mellon Arts Center, Wallingford, CT, the Fitchburg Art Museum, Fitchburg, MA, The Bruce Kershner Gallery at the Fairfield Library and the Katonah Museum among others.
A PART OF THE STORY is free and open to the public, and runs March 11 - March 27, with a chance to Meet the Artist on Sunday, March 13, from 1pm - 4 pm. City Gallery is located at 994 State Street, New Haven, CT 06511. Gallery hours are Friday - Sunday, 1pm - 4 pm, or by appointment. During regular hours, visitors are required to wear a mask and observe social distancing protocols. For the reception, proof of vaccination will be required for entry, and masks are required.
