Art Exhibits/Openings

Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, 84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Female\Feminist/2017 opens Monday, August 28 at the Chauncey Stillman Gallery at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts of the University of New Haven, 84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT.
Female\Feminist/2017 examines shifting considerations of how “female” fits into feminism and feminist art today, featuring a diverse and inclusive selection of artists. The exhibition, co-curated by Alva Greenberg and Nancy Gladwell includes diverse media and approaches to art as well, ranging from works on paper and sculpture to painting, photography, and animation.

On Friday, October 6, Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT will host a reading of Vagina Monologues in conjunction with the Female\Feminist/2017 exhibition. The performance is scheduled for 4:30 PM.

This exhibition reconsiders what it is to be female and how gender relates to feminism in contemporary society. As Gladwell states, “Not all females are feminist, and not all feminists are female.” To tackle critical dialogues around contemporary feminism, Gladwell and Greenberg draw on an inclusive group of artists and voices across a range of ethnicities, sexual orientation and prior societal expectations. Amongst other issues, this exhibition challenge notions of how women are and should be perceived.
Gladwell is Associate Professor of Painting and Foundation and Chair of the Faculty Council at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. She has exhibited all over the world, including as a visiting artist at the 2011 Venice Bienale, Marist College Program. She was a two-time recipient of the Greenshield’s Memorial Grant, the Posey Foundation Grant and NY CITA Fellowship for Painting. She was selected as a winner of Expo 30, 2012 by Margot Norton, Associate Curator of the Whitney Museum.
Greenberg is an independent curator as well as the founder of Serve Here CT and the former owner of ALVA Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in New London. She has served on many community boards, including the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, the Garde Arts Center, Inc., the Pequot Foundation, and Read to Grow. She has also served on the Acquisitions Committee at the Florence Griswold Museum. She currently sits on the board of the Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, and the Gund Art Gallery at Kenyon College.
On Female\Feminist/2017, Gladwell says this exhibitions gives “more air to an issue that is always there simmering.” She hopes that the show will promote important conversations and concepts, and ultimately help chip away at issues that affect us all.
The exhibition is open and free to the public. The Chauncey Stillman Gallery is open Monday - Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm.
Featured Artists: Dotty Attie, Siona Benjamin, Judy Cotton, Amy Cutler, Roberto Fabelo, Carla Gannis, Vanessa German, Hilary Harkness, Sophiya Khwaja, Joyce Kozloff, Robert Kushner, Adriana Marmorek, Marilyn Minter, Lissa Rivera, Ruby Rumie, Hank Willis Thomas, Mickalene Thomas, Ella Tulin, Benedicte Vanderreydt

Modal Realism;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Hygienic Art Galleries, 79 Bank St., New London, CT , 06320

Opening Reception: Friday, September 15, 7-10pm

Exhibition runs until Saturday, October 14th
In this exhibit, artist Troy Zaushny explores this concept and the nature of reality in a new body of work. Here the term “Modal Realism” is also proposed as an artistic form or “ism” such as surrealism or impressionism, where the significance of the process or mode in which a work is created is equal to its subject and outcome.

Troy is a printmaker, painter, and muralist from New London, CT. His work is a contemplation of the natural world, consciousness, and spiritual identity as they are being transformed by technology. Though incorporating imagery from popular culture, observation, and dreams, his rich colorful visions also explore the influences of faith and fantasy on our evolution.

The sweet white flesh that begs…

Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, 84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Female\Feminist/2017 opens Monday, August 28 at the Chauncey Stillman Gallery at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts of the University of New Haven, 84 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT.
Female\Feminist/2017 examines shifting considerations of how “female” fits into feminism and feminist art today, featuring a diverse and inclusive selection of artists. The exhibition, co-curated by Alva Greenberg and Nancy Gladwell includes diverse media and approaches to art as well, ranging from works on paper and sculpture to painting, photography, and animation.

On Friday, October 6, Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, CT will host a reading of Vagina Monologues in conjunction with the Female\Feminist/2017 exhibition. The performance is scheduled for 4:30 PM.

This exhibition reconsiders what it is to be female and how gender relates to feminism in contemporary society. As Gladwell states, “Not all females are feminist, and not all feminists are female.” To tackle critical dialogues around contemporary feminism, Gladwell and Greenberg draw on an inclusive group of artists and voices across a range of ethnicities, sexual orientation and prior societal expectations. Amongst other issues, this exhibition challenge notions of how women are and should be perceived.
Gladwell is Associate Professor of Painting and Foundation and Chair of the Faculty Council at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. She has exhibited all over the world, including as a visiting artist at the 2011 Venice Bienale, Marist College Program. She was a two-time recipient of the Greenshield’s Memorial Grant, the Posey Foundation Grant and NY CITA Fellowship for Painting. She was selected as a winner of Expo 30, 2012 by Margot Norton, Associate Curator of the Whitney Museum.
Greenberg is an independent curator as well as the founder of Serve Here CT and the former owner of ALVA Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in New London. She has served on many community boards, including the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, the Garde Arts Center, Inc., the Pequot Foundation, and Read to Grow. She has also served on the Acquisitions Committee at the Florence Griswold Museum. She currently sits on the board of the Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, and the Gund Art Gallery at Kenyon College.
On Female\Feminist/2017, Gladwell says this exhibitions gives “more air to an issue that is always there simmering.” She hopes that the show will promote important conversations and concepts, and ultimately help chip away at issues that affect us all.
The exhibition is open and free to the public. The Chauncey Stillman Gallery is open Monday - Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm.

Art Exhibits/Openings

Hygienic Art Galleries, 79 Bank St., New London, CT , 06320

Opening Reception: Friday, September 15, 7-10pm

Exhibition runs until Saturday, October 14th
In this exhibit, artist Troy Zaushny explores this concept and the nature of reality in a new body of work. Here the term “Modal Realism” is also proposed as an artistic form or “ism” such as surrealism or impressionism, where the significance of the process or mode in which a work is created is equal to its subject and outcome.

Troy is a printmaker, painter, and muralist from New London, CT. His work is a contemplation of the natural world, consciousness, and spiritual identity as they are being transformed by technology. Though incorporating imagery from popular culture, observation, and dreams, his rich colorful visions also explore the influences of faith and fantasy on our evolution.

Panorama Banana
It’s big, so very BIG.
An event to fill, challenge, and dilate even the most demanding ocular orifices.
GIVE IN TO THE LIGHT, that it may bathe your mind with sensuous vision.
Let yourself go, to wander upon the sacred object of contemplation.
EXPLORE its tapered contours, its smooth responsive yellow skin, the promise of sublimation.
Now peel back, slowly… you have all the time in the world to reveal its succulent interior.
The sweet white flesh that begs…
Oh BANANA, may you forever be Hygienic
