Yares Art is pleased to present "Manuel Neri: Singularity of Form & Surface," the first solo exhibition at the gallery's New York location, featuring bronze sculptures and drawings from the noted California artist. The exhibition runs from February 23rd through April 8th, 2017, with a preview reception on Thursday, February 23rd from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Yares Art’s new location on the 4th floor at 745 Fifth Avenue, New York. An 88-page catalogue published for the exhibition is available at the gallery. Gallery owner Dennis Yares writes in the exhibition catalogue that Manuel Neri’s work “continues a Modernist figurative tradition advanced in the 20th century by such artists as Alberto Giacometti and Marino Marini, yet Neri’s approach to the figure is matchless and very much his own. For Neri, the sculptural figure remains a viable and relevant vehicle capable of speaking in contemporary terms...” Neri, whose career now spans six decades, has exhibited with Yares galleries in Scottsdale, Arizona, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, since 1991. This is his first solo New York exhibition in ten years. Manuel Neri (b. 1930) is recognized for his life-size figurative sculptures and reliefs in plaster, bronze, and marble, their complex surfaces sanded, gouged, or painted as a means of directing the gestural thrust. The life-size bronze figures and maquettes featured in this exhibition are treated with the artist’s signature “Alborada patina,” a white painted surface layered with yellow glazes, that highlights the glow of the bronze and the sculptures’ formal and gestural essence. In Neri's work with the figure, he conveys an emotional inner state that is revealed through body language, gesture, and surface. During the past four decades, Neri has worked primarily with the same model, Mary Julia Klimenko, creating drawings and sculptures that merge contemporary sculptural concerns with classical forms. Since 1965 Neri has worked in his studio in Benicia, California; in 1981 he purchased a studio in Carrara, Italy, for working in marble. Neri initially became known in the 1960s for his association with the Bay Area Figurative movement. During the 1950s, he was a member of the artist-run cooperative Six Gallery in San Francisco where, in October 1955, he helped organize the "6 Poets at 6 Gallery" poetry reading, a landmark Beat era event where Allen Ginsberg gave the first public reading of “Howl.” In 1959, Neri was an original member of the Rat Bastard Protective Association, along with Bruce Conner, Joan Brown, Jay DeFeo, and other artists. (In the early 1960s Neri was married to painter Joan Brown, though their relationship and artistic collaboration dated back several years prior to that.) Neri taught sculpture at California School of Fine Arts (1959–65) and UC Berkeley Art Department (1963-4), and was on the art department faculty at the University of California, Davis from 1965-99. Awards include the International Sculpture Center’s 2006 Lifetime Achievement Award in Contemporary Sculpture, the 2008 Bay Area Treasure Award from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and many others. Museums holding works by Manuel Neri include the Art Institute of Chicago; Denver Art Museum; El Paso Museum of Art; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; Honolulu Museum of Art; Indianapolis Museum of Art; Memphis Brooks Museum; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Manetti Shrem Museum, Davis, California; Minneapolis Institute of Art; Nasher Gallery at Duke University; Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas; National Gallery of Art, Washington DC; Oakland Museum of California; Palm Springs Art Museum; Portland Art Museum, Oregon; San Diego Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; San Jose Museum of Art; Seattle Art Museum; University Museums, Iowa State University, Ames; Whitney Museum of American Art; Yale University Art Gallery, and others. Yares Art champions primarily major Postwar Abstract Expressionist and Color Field artists and has represented the Milton Avery Estate for the past five decades. The gallery’s inaugural exhibition featured “Helen Frankenthaler and L.M.N.O.P,” with works by Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Robert Motherwell, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, and Larry Poons and was hailed by writer David Ebony as “A rarity in New York, … a concise overview of the Color Field movement of the late 1950s and ’60s, whose heroic scaled canvases and immersive, panoramic viewing experiences are little known by younger generations of artists and art-lovers.” (Nov. 26, 2016, artnet.com) Yares Art is located at 745 Fifth Avenue, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10151 (212) 256-0969. http://www.yaresart.com

Concentrations of hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) were determined in a combination of archived and fresh blubber samples of juvenile ringed seals from East Greenland collected between 1986 and 2008. α-HBCD was the only diastereoisomer consistently above levels of quantification and showed a significant log-linear (exponential) increase from 2.0 to 8.7 ng/g lipid weight (median concentrations) with an annual rate of +6.1%. The concentrations were up to several orders of magnitude lower than those reported for marine mammals from industrialized areas. Previously presented time trends on polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have been extended with new data for 2006 and 2008. ΣPBDE in juvenile seals was the only parameter with a slight upward trend, however, dependent on the low 1986 concentration. Removing this data point resulted in a downward trend, which also was found for adult seals with a time trend starting in 1994. ΣPCB decreased significantly in juvenile seals, again due to the 1986 value, while no trend was found for the adult animals. This indicates stagnating PCB concentrations at a relatively high level, in some cases possibly exceeding tolerable daily intake rates for seal blubber as traditional Arctic food items. © 2011 American Chemical Society.

This study aimed to understand the relationship for productivity related traits using correlations and path coefficient analysis of 'Dashehari' mango under rainfed agro-climatic zone conditions of north-west Himalayas of India. The study also identifies the relationship among agronomic and yield-related characteristics to know the direct and indirect effect of independent variables on managerial ability of the crop. Correlation and path coefficient analyses were carried out over two consecutive years (2004, 2005) seasons for plant growth (tree trunk), leaf nutrient concentration, and fruit yield across four districts of Himachal Pradesh. Based on yield performance, an optimum sample size of 20 trees from each orchard comprised of 10 trees each of two categories: high productive (>90kgtree-1) and low productive (<90kgtree-1) were selected using the probability proportional to size multistage sampling scheme. Both high as well as low productive orchards were analyzed for soil and leaf chemical properties. Simple linear correlation and path coefficient analyses were worked out between all possible combinations. The contribution of leaf nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), and iron (Fe) on growth and fruit yield was studied. In high productive trees, path model showed that leaf N, Mg, Fe, Cu and Mn concentrations recorded the high magnitude of direct effect on fruit yield. However, leaf N concentration had a strong positive indirect effect through leaf Zn. Leaf Cu and Zn concentrations had a positive indirect effect through leaf Mg and leaf Zn on fruit yield. In low productive trees, leaf N concentration had a strong positive direct effect and a strong positive indirect effect via leaf Zn on fruit yield. Similarly, the direct effect of tree volume on fruit yield was positive, while, the maximum positive indirect effect was through leaf K. A residual value of 0.7308 and 0.7292 indicates the collective influence of the variables was to the magnitude of 0.2692 and 0.2708 to the extent of 26.9 and 27.1% toward fruit yield, and contributed 40.7 and 14.7% toward tree volume in high and low productive mango trees, respectively. The collective influence of the variables included on tree volume to the magnitude of 0.8521 and concluded that leaf nutrient content has been contributed to the extent of 14.7% toward tree volume. © 2015 Elsevier B.V.

The research has been focused for the systematic examination and assessment of cropping behavior, soil productivity and the promotion of soil biodiversity in pomegranate based multiple crop sequencing. The study also sought to monitor the agronomic performance, nutrient availability and microbial communities' in the rhizosphere. The potential of five crop sequencing systems comprised 'Pomegranate-Urd-Garlic' (P-U-G), 'Pomegranate-Urd-Pea' (P-U-P), 'Pomegranate-Turmeric' (P-T), 'Pomegranate-Broccoli' (P-B) and 'Pomegranate monoculture' (Pmono) under rainfed ecosystem has been demonstrated. After intercrop sequencing cycles, the essential relevant elements significantly improved growth attributes, physical, chemical and biological attributes of the rhizosphere soil compared to monoculture cropping practice. Maximum moisture content at field capacity (McFc, 24.9%), water holding capacity (WHC, 33.3%) and soil organic carbon (OC, 7.16gkg-1) was recorded in P-U-P intercrop sequencing. This superior sequencing also recorded the available macronutrient contents (N, P, K), exchangeable Ca and Mg of soil which were increased by 8.15%, 36.9%, 8.6%, 31.5% and 22%, respectively over Pmono. Diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (DTPA)-extractable micronutrient cations (Fe, Cu, Zn, Mn) improved by 15.6%, 23.2%, 28.7% and 16.5%, respectively. Microbial biomass carbon (MBC), microbial biomass nitrogen (MBN), and the plate count (colony-forming units, CFUs) of Bacillusspecies, Pseudomonasspecies, total soil fungi, Azotobacter chroococcumand actinobacteria exhibited significant variability. MBC and MBN ranged from 172.3 to 255.9mgkg-1 and 12.1 to 17.2mgkg-1, respectively. Microbial biomass of Pseudomonas species (116.5%), Bacillusspecies (80.5%), total soil fungi (204.4%), A. chroococcum(219.6%) and actinobacteria (205.6%) improved significantly over Pmono. Correlation analysis of different attributes representing the chemical and biological properties of soil also resulted in a significant association at P<0.05 attribute pairs. Principal component analysis (PCA) of soil quality attributes was also worked out to evaluate the differences induced among intercrop sequencing systems. The results inferred that PC4 accounted for 100% of the total variance in all intercrop sequencing. Therefore, no correlation was observed between the soil properties, and the first, second and third PC (PC1, PC2, and PC3). It is expedient from the studies that the intercrop sequence systems have effects on soil fertility indicators and has the implications for agricultural productivity. © 2015 Elsevier B.V..
