December 3 – 23, 2022 

Opening Reception: Saturday, December 3, 10AM – 5PM 

JENNIFER BAAHNG is pleased to invite you to Garden of Delight, a launching exhibition for the BAAHNG SHOP, from December 3 to 23, 2022. Jubilant and scintillating, luscious and succulent, the exhibition showcases nearly one hundred works of art and art objects by the gallery artists, and by celebrated artists of Modern and Contemporary Art. The opening of the exhibition coincides with the “36th Annual Miracle on Madison Avenue,” an annual one-day fundraising event, organized by The Society of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for its pediatric programs. 

Packed with a sumptuous cornucopia of oil paintings, pastel drawings, ceramics, hand-painted books and moving sculptures, Garden of Delight is a festive and fantastical tableaux of visual delectables. A trove of glittering and luminous surfaces, ranging from the pocket-sized to the formidable, the exhibition offers treasures both tiny and substantial. Guests will be greeted by soldered compact discs, miniature paintings and a gold-plated lollipop on velvet plush. Like an advent calendar, pastel drawings by Michael McClard, collaged boxes by Janet Taylor Pickett and The Taillight Series by Sharon Butler are installed as a seasonal dense-hang. Wall-papered with Zhang Hongtu’s iPad drawings and Eric Brown’s woven paintings, the installation entices and beguiles. Meanwhile, a painted snowboard soars across the white wall, kicking up “flying art”—hand-painted fans by Jackie Matisse, conjuring snow. A deck of baseball card-sized portraits by Jeff Gabel depicts fictive strangers that breathe with a gentle gravity, and Lego-constructed handbags by Jaye Moon deliver Braille messages ranging from the cheeky “Text Me,” to the profound. 

BAAHNG SHOP, the online shop of JENNIFER BAAHNG, offers a curated selection of books, exhibition catalogues, unique objects, limited editions, and artist designed accessories.
