Temporary Multimedia Public Art Installation

Friday, Jul. 3, 2015, 9:00 am
Temporary Multimedia Public Art Installation;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Atrium At Harris Place, 165 State Street, New London, CT , 06320

A Multimedia Public Art Installation by Mark Gerard McKee and Joseph (Butch) Rovan.

Engaging Space consists an installation of multiple ranks sheets of semi-transparent plastic of very light weight and thickness. The ranks are oriented perpendicular to the long axis of the Harris Place Atrium. The overall installation which extends to fill the length and width of the Atrium in its configuration defines the space as well as interacts with the environmental conditions and the vicissitudes of light and air currents. The installation is by artist Mark Gerard McKee: www.mckeestudio.com

In addition to its sculptural elements Engaging Space incorporates music as well in the form of the music/sound installation created by Joseph (Butch) Rovan, www.soundidea.org. Liriodendron is both interpretation of and response to the physical space of the atrium. However, this extraordinary sound experiences draws directly from the environment found at the Arboretum of nearby Connecticut College. In fact Liriodendron is also the name of a particular species of tree found there.

ll the sounds in this piece, then, come from the arboretum. The right front entry gate on Williams Street features, as a centerpiece, a decorative liriodendron leaf in wrought iron. Striking the gate, and listening through the leaf’s vibrating form, I discovered the gamelan-like resonances featured here, which suggest to me both the lyricism of the tree’s name and its mysterious past.

By walking through the atrium, listeners will be able to “play” this piece as well. Liriodendron reacts to their movement by offering up a series of high rhythmic melodies, like the tree’s high canopy, that rise to the building’s upper reaches.

MS17 Art Project, 165 State Street, Suite 101, Atrium at Harris Place, New London, CT , 06320

Susan Firestone refers to art possessed of certain qualities that have particular appeal to other artists. It is seen in the trail of marks revealing the process and search, the tension between positive and negative space. It is expressed in vaguely recognized yet not exhaustively rendered forms, patterns that stop just short of becoming overtly decorative as well as a tenuously balanced symmetry. The large paintings on view adeptly straddle a fine line between objective and non-objective abstraction.

Opening Reception for Summer Sculpture Showcase;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds, 80-1 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Gilbert Boro, owner and sculptor at Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds in Old Lyme, presents an exciting new exhibition on the grounds of his studio featuring examples of his own contemporary work accompanied by a selection of works created by a number of other widely acclaimed sculptors working in contrasting media. This Summer Sculpture Showcase will be on view from Monday, June 8, through Sunday, Sept. 13, and feature an Opening Reception on Friday, June 19, from 5 to 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend the reception at which light refreshments will be served.

Nine sculptors will be exhibiting in Boro’s expansive Sculpture Gardens located on the 4.5 acres of his residence on historic Lyme Street in the heart of Old Lyme, Conn. Their works will be interspersed amongst Boro’s own sculptures along with works by 13 other contributing artists on the beautifully landscaped grounds offering a unique plein air experience combining both large- and small-scale contemporary sculptures, many of which are for sale. The sculptors whose work – and in some cases, more than one piece - was selected for the Showcase are Diane Barcelo, Ashby Carlisle, Fay Chin, Gints Grinsberg, Lannie Hart, Deborah Hornbake, Elizabeth Knowles, David Millen, Elizabeth Miller McCue and William Thielen.

The signature piece of the exhibition is “Queen Anne’s Lace” by Gints Grinsbergs. It is a large -- 144” in height, 56” in diameter -- yet delicate structure that evokes the intricate design of lace in its welded and stainless steel structure. Grinsbergs’ work has been featured at various museums and galleries and is Included in private and corporate collections throughout North America.

Fay Chin’s abstract aluminum sculpture in the exhibition titled, “Waves,” explores pyramidal relationships in a large, ground-based structure. A sculptor and painter, she has exhibited stone and metal sculptures nationally and internationally in museums, galleries, and public spaces with larger installations.

“Modern Dance,” a multi-colored sculpture utilizing wire fencing wrapped in vinyl surveying tape, is a collaborative work by Elizabeth Knowles and William Thielen. Natural patterns inspire the work of Knowles and Thielen, who live and work respectively in New York City and Carbondale, Ill. Both have an extensive body of individual work and have received numerous awards, grants and residencies.

Boro has enjoyed a distinguished career as a sculptor, architect, educator and international design consultant. He explores the interplay of space, place and scale in a wide range of media including stone, wood, metal and fiberglass. His vast body of work has been exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the US and internationally, and has also been purchased by collectors, corporations and foundations in both the US and Europe. Boro currently has several works being exhibited at off-site locations including the South Carolina-based Art League of Hiltonhead’s Biennale (where he was recently awarded second place in their 24th National Juried Exhibition), the New England Sculptor’s Association’s exhibition in Portsmouth, N.H., and Ramey Fine Art in Palm Desert, Calif.

This inaugural Summer Sculpture Showcase offers a unique opportunity for established sculptors to exhibit their work in a different location, while also effectively creating a new exhibition within the Sculpture Gardens. Boro comments, “I’m delighted to be able to open my grounds to these exceptional sculptors whose work intrigues me. Each one offers original creative thinking resulting in a fascinating combination of contrasting conceptual designs in a variety of media. I think any visitor to the exhibition is going to be thoroughly engaged by what he or she sees – including children.”

Boro is somewhat unusual as a professional sculptor in that he loves to see folk of all ages directly interacting with his sculptures, noting that he has a strong aversion to exhibitions, “… where people can’t touch my work.” Apart from attracting visitors to see the works on his grounds, Boro is thoroughly invested in the vibrant Old Lyme arts scene and hopes this exhibition will help cement the town as a summer destination for art-loving visitors from near and far, especially during the town’s Midsummer Festival on Friday, July 24, and Saturday, July 25.

Located at 80-1 Lyme St., less than a minute from Exit 70 on I-95, the Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds are open 365 days a year from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is free. Children, field trips and group visits are all welcome. The Studio is open by appointment.
