Annual Theme Show: This Is Not Art

Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017, 11:00 am

Art Exhibits/Openings

Mystic Museum of Art, 9 Water Street, Mystic, CT , 06355

Marcel Duchamp anonymously submitted “Fountain” to the Society of Independent Artists for exhibition in 1917. The exhibition was non-juried and all works submitted by members were to be displayed. However, the organization refused to exhibit “Fountain”, arguing that it was not art. Duchamp contested that the work was art, because an artist had made it. With this work, Duchamp challenged the idea of what art can be. Our juried theme show this year celebrates the 100th anniversary of Duchamp’s ground breaking work. “This Is Not Art” is a theme, but also a challenge to create work that pushes boundaries. The show will run from January 13 through February 25.

Opening Reception: Friday, January 13, 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm.
Show: January 13 - February 25, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm, DAILY
Receiving: Sunday, January 8th and Monday, January 9th, 11 am - 5 pm.

Pick Up Unaccepted Work:              Friday      January 13      11 am – 5 pm
                                                        Saturday  January 14      11 am – 5 pm
Pick Up Accepted Work:                  Sunday    February 26     11 am – 5 pm

"Object and Influence"

Thursday, Jan. 19, 2017, 6:00 pm

Art Exhibits/Openings

Hygienic Art Galleries, 79 Bank Street, New London, CT , 06320

Opening Reception: Saturday, January 7 6-8pm
through Jan. 22; 2-7 p.m. Tues.-Fri., 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Sat., and noon-4 p.m. Sun.; (860) 443-8001.

Upcoming in Hygienic Art’s underground gallery will be “Object and Influence”, an exhibit which will explore the objects, images and music that inspire artists’ work. Curated by Jason Silva. The exhibit focuses on the space where ideas begin, before being reformulated, repurposed and rebuilt.

Source images dot most artists’ studio walls, whether it is a postcard or a ripped page from a catalogue. Odd ephemera line most artists’ shelves. Perhaps, a ceramic jar or an antique toy occupies the space where creation happens. Sound carries from speakers setting the backdrop. To remove these items from the studio and place them in a gallery setting creates an opportunity to envision a backstory to and can lead to an artist’s unique way of combining images and themes.

The show will have three sections that will maximize the exhibition space. Each artist has selected one object, two unique images and three sound files that in some way inform their own artwork. Object and Influence builds a dialogue amongst a large group of working artists based on their shared experience working in a studio environment and the information that populates that space.
