Annual Theme Show: This Is Not Art

Monday, Feb. 20, 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.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
We are two people making things asking questions about the nature of making things. What are we accountable to, and for? The material? Beauty? The thing? Earth? Our bodies? The collective body? We both feel a need to reach out beyond even what is possible in our own studio practices. We hear the voices saying this is a time to transcend our selves, to listen, to be a part among a greater whole. We ask: In such severe times, is there any shape of value to the space between the personal and the political, and between what one knows, and doesn’t?

Collaborative Economy will attempt to locate such a space, or else—make one. This exhibition will feature artworks we jointly constructed, as well as four days of performative action. For six hours on four Saturdays during the run of the show, we will approach making new works of art in real time collaboratively, using the tools and materials from our own worktables transposed to inside the gallery.

Art Exhibits/Openings

Cooper & Smith Gallery, 10 Main Street, Essex, CT , 06426

Sheila’s paintings are informed by her world travels, landscapes and atmospheres observed from the cockpit of her single engine plane. Evocative skyscapes of luminous deep space emerge from shifting light and veils of color. About Sheila’s work, artist Stephen Westfall writes, "We have the concurrent sensations of looking at intensifications of light effects that occur at sunrise and sunset while also seeing color as a mineral experience....You'll watch meteorological weather become emotional weather." Opening reception with the artist on Saturday, February 25, 5 – 7 p.m. Light fare and live music.

Art Exhibits/Openings

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

The opening reception will be Saturday, February 18th from 7pm – 10pm. The exhibit runs until Saturday, March 18th.

The artists of “UNEVEN SURFACE: Rough Illuminations” capture light and portray movement through a dimensional surface, secondarily through pattern, color and texture. Featuring non-traditional painting and these artists express themselves using texture on the surface of their works. This journey along the path and the depths of personal and exterior world observations is reflected in the tactile and textural results of all of these artists works. In each there is an implied meaning other than simply a literal image.

THE ARTISTS:
Deborah J. Aldo, Julia Pavone, Jennifer Davies, Amy Hannum

For six hours on four Saturdays during the run of the show, we will approach making new works of art in real time collaboratively, using the tools and materials from our own worktables transposed to inside the gallery.

Opening Reception: Skyward: Skyscapes by Sheila Kramer;

Art Exhibits/Openings

Cooper & Smith Gallery, 10 Main Street, Essex, CT , 06426

Sheila’s paintings are informed by her world travels, landscapes and atmospheres observed from the cockpit of her single engine plane. Evocative skyscapes of luminous deep space emerge from shifting light and veils of color. About Sheila’s work, artist Stephen Westfall writes, "We have the concurrent sensations of looking at intensifications of light effects that occur at sunrise and sunset while also seeing color as a mineral experience....You'll watch meteorological weather become emotional weather."

The opening reception will be Saturday, February 18th from 7pm – 10pm. The exhibit runs until Saturday, March 18th.

The artists of “UNEVEN SURFACE: Rough Illuminations” capture light and portray movement through a dimensional surface, secondarily through pattern, color and texture. Featuring non-traditional painting and these artists express themselves using texture on the surface of their works. This journey along the path and the depths of personal and exterior world observations is reflected in the tactile and textural results of all of these artists works. In each there is an implied meaning other than simply a literal image.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
We are two people making things asking questions about the nature of making things. What are we accountable to, and for? The material? Beauty? The thing? Earth? Our bodies? The collective body? We both feel a need to reach out beyond even what is possible in our own studio practices. We hear the voices saying this is a time to transcend our selves, to listen, to be a part among a greater whole. We ask: In such severe times, is there any shape of value to the space between the personal and the political, and between what one knows, and doesn’t?

Collaborative Economy will attempt to locate such a space, or else—make one. This exhibition will feature artworks we jointly constructed, as well as four days of performative action. For six hours on four Saturdays during the run of the show, we will approach making new works of art in real time collaboratively, using the tools and materials from our own worktables transposed to inside the gallery.
