The Carter Burden Gallery, located in West Chelsea, New York, has just opened a new art showcase of drawings and sculpture by Charles Ramsburg at its Chelsea Gallery today that runs through April 10. The artist is showing a collection of vibrant charcoal drawings and mixed media sculptures that are primitive but realistically drawn and intricate at the same time. The artist manages to convey nature in its purest form with abstract drawings in charcoal that are stripped of artifice and inspired by the natural surroundings that he seems to be in tune with. His collection of drawings and sculptures are paired with unique photographs by six photographers; including, Edward Fausty, Larry Davis, Katherine D. Crone, Stanley Kolber, Jeffrey Ben Berman and Sara Petit.
Added http://www.nyartbeat.com of the works highlighted by Charles Ramsburg’s first solo show at the Gallery entitled “Drawings & Sculpture” "Ramsburg explores his interest in the complexities of dimensionality and spatial contradictions.”
Added http://www.nyartbeat.com about his first show at The Gallery: “These works are responses to the artist’s woodland walks in the Adirondacks and his conflicting experience of accessibility and reassurance yet spatial confusion.”
“In his sculpture, Ramsburg draws on the ancient tradition of the walking staff and its esoteric and functional history. His sculpture incorporates organic and man made materials, seamlessly joined to create his "Pathing Sticks," embodying the stillness of an inanimate object with the movement for which it is intended,” according to http://www.nyartbeat.com.

Adds The Carter Burden Gallery: “In “Looking Beyond,” "one of the gallery artists, Sara Petitt has guest curated a show of six photographers that pushes the boundaries of obvious and every day, often the subject of photographic practice.” The gallery web site said that the work of the photographers "explores “transformations, creations, and elusive realities.”
