Manhattan – Lower East Side
47 Orchard St between Grand and Hester Sts
Rachel Uffner cut her teeth working at Christies and as director for D'Amelio Terras gallery in Chelsea; she opened her space in 2008. Her small stable of artists is eclectic, but they share a sensibility that could could be called painterly, though not all of them paint. Roger White, for example, makes understated watercolors which cross back and forth between patterny abstraction, and recognizable subjects like striped or checkered shirts. Sara Greenberger Rafferty makes C-prints of found magazine images, which have been wetted so that their colors run, resulting in works that seem to allude to the function of memory.
