Vessels of Wisdom
ON VIEW VIA ARTSY: October 17 - December 5, 2016
Jenn Singer Gallery presents Vessels of Wisdom, a group exhibition curated for Artsy’s digital platform that includes work by Miriam Cabessa, Delphine Diallo, Daniel Maidman, Carey Maxon, Susan Rothenberg and Emily Weiskopf.
Given the current political and social climate, it is more important than ever to honor and respect these vessels of wisdom – long standing symbols of the feminine – which are held up, physically and spiritually, in these thirteen powerful works.
The collection includes representational photography, abstract drawings, prints and etchings, pastels, charcoals and oil on canvas. Rothenberg’s Girl/Boy etching echoes the curves of Maidman’s nudes and Weiskopf’s works on paper. The abstraction of Cabessa’s hypnotic oil on canvas and Maxon’s dot work juxtaposed against Diallo’s photograph The Eye, draws the viewer in deeper…into the soul of the work and its matriarchal core.

The New York Optimist features Emily Weiskopf Solo Exhibition Pixan Paths//Higher Roads at Jenn Singer Gallery for the week of May 8th - May 17th 2016
Emblematic and emotionally explorative, the work on display at the Jenn Singer Gallery by Emily Weiskopf is informed by a range of different experiences and sources. Her time as a Printmaker is evident in the love of texture, technical ability, and color on display.
I was thrilled to be invited on to Open Bronx Net T.V to discuss my current Solo Exhibition Pixan Paths//Higher Roads at Jenn Singer Gallery. Rhina Valentin and I discussed life, my inspirations around my work including spirituality, science and Ancient Ruins including my recent trip to the Yucatan Pennisula and lastly my road to recovery after an almost fatal accident which changed the path of my work, my ability to make it and looking towards higher roads.

SOLO EXHIBITION OF NEW WORK
Opening Reception 5-7 SATURDAY, APRIL 30TH
The opening of Emily Weiskopf's show of painted plaster frescoes, embedded with stones, shells, and other organic materials collected by the artist. The show's title comes from the Mayan word pixan which means spirit, and is inspired by the artist's interest in ancient ruins and spirituality, as piqued by her recent expedition to Mayan ruins on the Yucatán Peninsula (April 30–May 28).

Along with being surround by other amazing CT sculptors the Governor himself has had a long interest and involvement with transportation and felt Unparallel Way matched his mission and we couldn't agree more. Unparallel Way II was installed at the top of the entrance to the Governor's home to run along his grounds. The sculpture is on viewing by appointment.

Why Don't We Have A Monorail Connecting Manhattan To Brooklyn?
.....Gressel and other judges selected artist Emily Weiskopf for the Fourth Avenue public art project because her work wouldn't get lost on the bustling strip.
"It's in the middle of a really busy thoroughfare on the street," Gressel said. "It's not a great place to stop and contemplate a smaller work. It demands something big and bold."

Bushwick Open Studios weekend
By Emily Weiskopf
Opening: Emily Weiskopf, “The Curve of Binding Energy,” at John Molloy Gallery
Named for John McPhee’s book on the nuclear age, this show promises to introduce the up-and-comer Weiskopf, of the American Laboratory collective, to a whole new audience on the Upper East Side. Might this lead to some kind of a meltdown on the part of the audience? Possibly! Should you be there? Definitely! —D.D.
John Molloy Gallery, 49 East 78th Street, New York, 6–9 p.m.
Created new works at my residency at The Wassiac Project in Wassiac, NY. Bounce was my first venture using foam.
Rockport Public Library opens!!
How do we remember? With this upcoming installation, the American Laboratory examines the artifacts of our histories. Where does memory end and nostalgia begin? This is the American Laboratory. This is an extraordinary experiment in interdisciplinary collaboration. An assembly of specialists collaborating amongst specialists in varying fields: Emily Weiskopf’s passageways; Pedro Feria Pino’s experiments with inaudible video and film; Jacob Mondry’s ambient narratives in unconventional music and sound; Kirin McCrory’s contemporary pastiches of classic literature; the American Laboratory lives in the liminal space where these forms can tell the same story.
Rockport Public Library is a performance installation marrying visual art, performance art, and experimental theatre. (This exhibit is free to the public.) that opens this Friday, April 27 and also runs on Saturday (April 28), Monday (April30), and Tuesday, May 1 at 168 Powers Street, Brooklyn. Doors open at 8 and shows start at 8:15.
