Synergy—an exhibition of artworks by Ron Meisner and textiles from Cora Ginsburg LLC—explores the dynamics of color, pattern, iconography, and embellishment that develop in this unique juxtaposition. 

In his Filter series, Meisner’s canvases are recycled coffee filters, each fabric-like with mottled surfaces. His compositions—organic, figurative and abstract in nature—are mixed-media combinations of materials and methods. Watercolor, gouache and pencil mingle with vivid tie-dye, collage and esoteric appliqués. Meisner applies his artistic “filter” to the sensual world, conjuring statements of humorous imagery, mysterious narrative, delicate beauty, and complex geometry. 

An aesthetic dialogue emerges when Meisner’s Filters are put in context with a selection of antique, ethnographic and modernist textiles from the Cora Ginsburg collection. An emphasis on color harmonies, shapes and textures connects diverse fabrics—including bold eighteenth-century patterns, mid-twentieth-century printed linens, swirling Art Nouveau designs, and dazzling Asian embroideries—to Meisner’s art, highlighting the synergistic interplay of three centuries of textile design and the work of a contemporary artist.
