ODETTA, in response to the current paradigm, is excited to introduce a new exhibition space, ODETTA Petite. Replicating the gallery’s original Bushwick venue, Ellen Hackl Fagan and Seth Callander have created a scaled-down space to enable its artists to return to gallery exhibitions. The new space is 8.5H X 16W x 24.5 L inches. With a touch of humor, Fagan channels a combination of International Style and Wes Anderson, ala Alice in Wonderland.

When ODETTA opened in Bushwick in 2014, one goal director Ellen Hackl Fagan realized for the gallery was an annual summer solo exhibition of a single monumental sculpture to be built on site. It was like a mini-residency for the artists. Seth Callander’s solo exhibit is a continuation of that original intent.

Seth Callander began his art career in New York City in the East Village just as that historic scene was taking off. He studied architecture at the University of Oregon. Working as a sculptor and a furniture designer and craftsman, his work has been exhibited on both coasts.

Fagan’s plan for ODETTA Petite is that it will function as a true model for the gallery, offering proposals for large-scaled sculptures and installations that will begin as online features for designers and architects to access for their private and corporate clients on commission. It will also be a source of entertainment and discussion from the stoop, dining room table... it's portable!

Proposals for ODETTA Petite are welcome. Contact Ellen for specs As the pandemic alters the ways that galleries can bring artists’ works to exhibition, ODETTA has rolled with these challenges, responding with ODETTA Digital on Artsy, as a part of the SHIM Art Network, and now with ODETTA Petite. Fagan’s passion for experimentation and innovation is driving her to find new ways to inspire artists and collectors to stay engaged with new projects and new platforms.
