The Other Lines Of Time



Dates: Oct 7th - Oct 14th

Huayuan Art is pleased to announce The Other Lines Of Time, an exhibition featuring a selection of Dizhang paintings from Huayuan Collection, on view at 119 Ludlow Street from October 7 through October 14, 2016. Please join us for an opening reception on Friday, October 7, 6-8 pm.


This body of paintings - created with traditional dry fresco technique - is dominated by enigmatical and compelling episodes from the ancient literatures and murals from the caves in Dunhuang (translates as “blazing beacon”), Western China. It aims to shed light onto the complexities of time, permanence, and continuity through the regional history and mythology.


This is exhibition is curated by Rae Wang and organized by Huayuan Art. Huayuan Art is an art foundation based in New York, driven and inspired by traditional East Asian art and culture. We seek to share and spread appreciation of the artistic and cultural wonders conceived in this region of Asia - while uniting a growing international community of artists, scholars, specialists, and institutions in the process.

Lucy "Tinkle" Nell Stewart

Dates: 10.4.16 - 10.6.16

“I find great sustenance in the mother ship and all her elements.

Coming from a classical and avant-garde theatre arts background I carry with me the proscenium to composite new worlds with my beloved and always surprising creature friends. As much as I am painting/composing with movements and sounds, the works have a life of their own and I try to stay out of the way”.

Lucy Nell Stewart was born in Northern California in autumn of 1960. From 1973-1976 she attended American Ballet Theater scholarship summers in New York City. Returning to California she finished high school then danced professionally with a handful of ballet companies; Houston Ballet, San Francisco Opera Ballet, Garden State Ballet, and Dayton Ballet. In 1979 through the mid 1980’s she created and performed her own performance art works in New York City as well studied clowning at “If Every Fool”. She headed back to California to for theater and film projects where her first one-woman show emerged in the early 1990’s in Los Angeles. Back to New York City mid 1990’s to create her second show and her theatrical pursuits led to an interest in filmmaking. Lucy attended a handful of Super 8 and 16mm classes at Millennium with Ross McLaren and then migrated to video on her own to create these works. She has been making art her entire life and now resides in Pennsylvania near the Delaware River.

Ginger Del Rey - Bare

BARE - A Solo Exhibition of New Work by Ginger Del Rey

September 17 - September 18, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 17, 8-10pm

Del Rey takes inspiration from her friends and lovers, recreating photographs she’s taken in impromptu, late-night photoshoots in saturated paintings using oils and gold leaf. Known for her revealing portraits, her new series is aptly titled BARE as it aims to strip away millennial artifice, self-aggrandizing selfie-posing, and other Kardashian-inspired atrocities. BARE is about showing a woman as she is, with nothing to hide and nothing to pretend; with all of her insecurities and strengths presented in equal parts. Del Rey invites the viewer to study their reaction to beauty without an agenda. 

The artist describes her process, "I see beauty in every woman. I'm forever drawn to them, even strangers on the subway. I feel compelled to capture their radiance and reveal it to the world. To lay her BARE for all to see, to appreciate, to worship, to envy... to recognize and pay tribute to the power of beauty. I think painting a woman might be the best way to truly understand her. Spending hours studying every surface, every shade, the way her mouth curves just so or the slight expansion of her retina as her eyes adjust to the flash - she reveals herself. She may not intend to, but she always does. I feel especially close to the woman I've painted.  They've fed my passion and my artwork and for that I thank them for all that they are."

Ginger Del Rey was born Lisa Hokans in Madison, WI in 1975 and has been based in NYC for 17 yrs. In 1997, she received a B.F.A. from Drake University. During her time in NYC she’s also worked as a muralist with, and as a scenic painter for numerous theatrical productions. She’s also exhibited at the Pure House Gallery in Brooklyn and at the Spice Art & Music Festival 2016 for Pride Week. Her work can be found at
