ART21 Magazine, "'The Revolution Will Be Painted' Revisited"
Last year, as part of ART21 Magazine’s “Revolution” issue, feminist new genre painter Anne Sherwood Pundyk rewrote the lyrics to Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” to create “The Revolution Will Be Painted.” Named after one of her large scale, latex and acrylic works, the collection of phrases from artists, writers, art historians and critics advocated for the crucial role that the visual arts—especially painting—play in propelling social change. This year, she’s looking back on the months that followed the creation of her anthem and eponymous painting, investigating the ways in which expressive abstract color creates a revolution of its own.
Christopher Stout Gallery/New York
Christopher Stout Gallery, New York (CSG/NY) is a contemporary art gallery in East Williamsburg, showing subversive and difficult work by New York City artists. We delight in serving as a platform for discourse on work that is challenging to authority paradigms, feminist, queer, anti-establishment, hyper-aggressive, mystic, and/or joyously sexual.
Our third feature exhibition for December 2015 at CSG/NY is titled, "Army Of Lovers" with bold and triumphant works by Linda Griggs, Josh Kil, Andrew Cornell Robinson, Anne Sherwood Pundyk, Kelsey Shwetz, Vincent Tiley, J. Morrison, Brian Andrew Whiteley, and Eric Gottshall.
During this exhibition, the gallery will notably premier NEW major works by feminist painters Kelsey Shwetz and Anne Sherwood Pundyk along with a new sculptural installation by Josh Kil. In addition, we will also show NEW works by artists Lisa Levy, Kenny Colors, Anthony Viti, Cupid Ojala, Reynolds, and Drew Van Diest.
"Army Of Lovers" will be on view December 18th, 2015 through January 24th, 2016.
Kindly note that our gallery will be closed December 24th through January 07th for winter break in observance of the end-of-year holidays.

Noah Dillon from artcritical interviews me in "Tell Me: with Anne Sherwood Pundyk"
Dillon begins: "I’ve been visiting — with artists, writers, curators, dealers, and others in the art world — to look at one artwork of my guest’s choice. We have a one-on-one conversation about the artwork, what they find interesting in it and why it’s important to them. In this edition, painter Anne Sherwood Pundyk and I went to her studio in Mattituck, New York, to look at her ongoing painting project, The Revolution Will Be Painted..."

Reviewing the Responses to MoMA's Divisive Painting Survey" Hyperallergic, March 20, 2015
In constructing my critique of MoMA's "Forever Now" exhibition in Hyperallergic I turn to six thoughtful reviews out of the many written about the exhibition. Four are by painters: Sharon Butler, Brian Dupont, Thomas Micchelli, and David Salle; two are by critics: Jason Farago and Christian Viveros-Fauné. There is consensus about the weakness of the show's premise of "atemporality", its relevance and effectiveness. Opinions diverge about the work itself. The timing, many felt, given MoMA's past record and future plans points to self-interest over the benefits of the larger museum-going audience.

"Stadia" Anne Sherwood Pundyk: Exhibition Catalogue
"Stadia" presents paintings by Anne Sherwood Pundyk and her dialogues with poet and critic Barry Schwabsky and artist and writer Kara L. Rooney. The works and conversations reveal Pundyk's traversal between her studio practice and collaborative exchanges. Color and gesture translate the artist's essential stories. Through her connections with other artists and her audience she looks to identify how these stories overlap with older tales, myths and fable. These works were shown at Susan Eley Fine Art, New York, NY in the winter of 2013.
