Romancing the Toaster: Works by Myles Calvert

01/27/2017
Opening Reception: Romancing the Toaster
- (6:00 PM - 8:00 PM) Calvert’s work explores the relationships that develop between everyday objects and popular culture references. Following the ideals of Romanticism, emphasis is given to an individual experience of emotion. A moment of spontaneity allows for humour and a subtle twist to avoid an overwhelming glorifications of the past through objects of the mundane. His influences are heavily drawn from contemporary and modern printmakers such as Richard Hamilton, René Magritte, and the self-promoting antics of the YBA (Young British Artist) culture. Myles Calvert was born in Collingwood, Ontario (Canada). He attended the University of Guelph with a focus in printmaking and art history, before traveling to London, UK where he completed his MA in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art (University for the Arts, London). Major bodies of work included mass installations of screen printed toast and the idolization of popular British celebrity.

One of the few female artists to be taken seriously in 1960’s New York City, Eva Hesse (1936-1970) produced sculptures that incorporate latex, fiberglass and plastics. Her work went on to help create the post-minimalist movement. This just released, independent, biographical documentary (directed by Marcie Begleiter, 2016) includes new interviews, high quality footage of Hesse’s artwork, and a wealth of newly discovered archival imagery. The film not only traces Eva’s artistic trajectory, but engages in a lively investigation into the creative community of 1960’s New York and Germany. View the trailer: https://www.evahessedoc.c...

IEA Visiting Artist: Laura Splan
- Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

Laura Splan of Brooklyn, NY, will be joining the Institute for Electronic Arts for an artist residency the week of February 20th. Laura, who received her MFA at Mills College in Oakland, California, explores intersections of art, science, technology, and craft in her work. In recent work, she has been using her own body to generate bio-data to be used in the production of sculptures and images, a project that has manifested itself in a variety of materials and formats including computerized jacquard woven tapestries and 3D printed sculptures.

Throughout her residency, Laura intends to create computer generated animated weavings from bio-data collected via Arduino microcontrollers. The waveforms generated from this data will be used in AfterEffects and other software with animation, sound, parenting, and expressions to create animated weavings that visualize and embody the experiences from which they were derived.

The Institute for Electronic Art’s Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Jeff Whetstone Visiting Artist Lecture
- (4:00 PM - 5:00 PM) Sponsored by: The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography

The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography is pleased to present visiting artist Jeff Whetstone.

Jeff Whetstone’s photographs and films imagine rural America through lenses of anthropology and mythology. Whetstone’s Post-Pleistocene photographs illuminate the depths of wild caves in Alabama and Tennessee, where layers of human markings reveal millennia of cultural evolution. His ongoing New Wilderness project portrays a human-centric American wilderness and questions how our cultural connection to the mythology of the wild is revealed in contemporary times. Whetstone’s work interrogates the stereotypes of rural people--ignorance, poverty, and self-destruction--and explores the complicated bond between people and the landscape.

Whetstone’s work has been exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions, including the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Karyn Lovegrove in Los Angeles and Higher Pictures and Wallspace in New York. In 2007 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship his work New Wilderness and his work has been reviewed in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, and Art News, among others. Whetstone is represented by Julie Saul in New York and is currently a Professor of Visual Arts at Princeton University.

Laughing "yoga" event on Wednesday at 5:30 pm in Powell
- (5:30 PM - 6:00 PM) As part of the Wellness Center’s Winter Meltdown, we are leading a recreational laughing event this Wednesday (2/22) at 5:30PM near the info desk on the second floor of Powell. One way to describe this type of thing is as “laughter yoga,” but this bears little resemblance to actual yoga. I’ve planned out a sequence of laughing “exercises” that do not require there to be any joke – the laughter begins voluntarily (like a forced laugh) but then feeds on itself and becomes real as people let themselves be amused by the situation. It's nice 30 minute break on your way to dinner.

There will be silliness, absurdity, comraderie, and the opportunity to be playful in the middle of the week. We will be impossible to ignore in the middle of Powell, and anyone walking by is welcome to join in the fun. I am confident hilarity will ensue.

This is a great way to let loose some stress, get a little endorphin rush, and even burn some extra calories. If you think you could use a little pick-me-up, it would be great to have faculty, staff, and students all share a laugh - bring a friend with you to share the experience!

Ecological Citizenship Workshop
- (5:15 PM - 6:15 PM) What does it mean to be an ecological citizen? In this workshop we will seek to answer this question by discussing what "ecology" and "citizenship" mean in the first place, how an individual or a community can build their ecological identity, and how that foundation can inform how we engage with the world.

Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of their familiarity with the concepts above. All that is required is a willingness to share ideas and learn!

This workshop is part of my Honors thesis as well as my final step to graduate from the Women's Leadership Academy. Though I will be leading the workshop, it will be based in group discussion, and I will also be learning along with you. Visual material generated during the workshop will later be incorporated into a zine. Participants will be credited if they wish to be.

Panel Talk: Cahaba River Watershed Project
- (5:00 PM - 7:00 PM) Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

The Cahaba River Watershed Project is an investigation?of the natural environment and how it has shaped and is shaped by human activity. The Cahaba River is a 200-mile free owing river with some of the greatest biodiversity and scenic beauty in the South. It rises near Birmingham and flows southwest to the Alabama River just south of Selma. As it passes through Montevallo’s Shelby County it is fed by the Little Cahaba watershed that rises in Ebenezer Swamp, an ecological preserve and research center of the University of Montevallo.

The three themes of interest around the Cahaba River are?the natural environment, the human history, from Civil War to Civil Rights, and its ecological and geological features, containing natural resources that are used for economic activity, especially the coal, limestone and iron ore mining that was the foundation of the early iron industry in the area.

The Cahaba River Watershed Project is the collaborative project of printmaker Scott Stephens, new media artist Elisabeth Pellathy, and sculptor Lee Somers. Their week-long residency will explore relief and intaglio print processes. There will be a panel talk with the artists on Thursday, March 30th at 5:00 pm in Holmes Auditorium.

Writing Center Pizza and Pedagogy (faculty discussion)
- (12:15 PM - 1:00 PM) Once again, the Writing Center is sponsoring a Pizza and Pedagogy lunchtime discussion on how to help your students become better writers when writing is not the main point of your class. The topic for this year is building on writing skills taught in our first year writing classes. The majority of our students take Writing I and/or II in their first year. So by the time they get to their upper division classes, their writing should be perfect, right? Not so much. Apart from the fact that writing is a skill that takes time to develop, students often don’t transfer the skills they’ve learned in their introductory writing class(es) to their other classes. There obviously isn’t time to completely reteach writing in every class, but possibly we can encourage transfer of skills by explicitly making connections to what the students have already learned. To start off the discussion, Allen Grove will provide an overview of skills taught in Writing I and II and Mary McInnes will talk about ways she explicitly builds on those skills in art history classes without sacrificing content. Come share your ideas and successes with fellow faculty or just listen. Pizza will be served. RSVP to Vicky Westacott, fcobb@alfred.edu (so I know how much pizza to order).

Rebekah’s installation, Re Made Co., is a multimedia artistic intervention satirizing the brand narrative of Best Made Co., a New York City-based company that sells painted axes and a range of “outdoor” consumer products using calculated and false associations with manual labor. Evolving since its launch in July 2013, Re Made Co. works across genres, including Fluxus art whose distribution channels circumvent and subvert the gallery system; critical design that challenges the values of design practice; and activist art or “culture jamming” that attempts to introduce a critical discourse into passive consumption.
Re Made Co. at Cohen Gallery will create a storefront space on Main Street in Alfred with both the products and the critique of luxury consumer culture that seeks to appropriate the work of labor.
Nick will conduct performances in the gallery and in the community during the month of March. He will present, “Marvelous Guests,” which lends new working conditions and meanings to several trades by inviting professionals to conduct their business in unusual locations. As a guest. Each encounter will produce its own forms of communication on location. We see the relationship between guest and host as dynamic, and not without friction as each adjusts to the other.
Both artists taught at the School of Art Design at Alfred University before joining the faculty at the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where they currently live and work.

Visiting Artist Demonstration: Joanna Powell
- 9am-12pm, 1-4pm both days

Sponsored by: The Alfred Clay Collective

The Alfred Clay Collective welcomes spring visiting artist Joanna Powell.

Artist Statement:
My current work focuses on the question of beauty. What I find beautiful tends to be awkward and irregular and at times the opposite of what is considered the social norm of beauty. This challenge of beauty comes from growing up in a culture where my identity of what it is to be a woman has been shaped by a male lens. My work allows me a place of asylum, a fictional culture where everything and everyone is ok to exist. Through the arrangement of objects I set up a situation or narrative where the viewer can forget about an objects function and call attention to its possibilities as pure matter with its own intentions. I want to encourage questions about what is happening with the objects and the narrative being peculiar and unclear welcomes this conversation. The paintings and objects have become married into installations, re-contextualizing them to function as three-dimensional paintings. My work lives in this twilight zone between painting and sculpture. I am continually searching for this sensation of something coming into focus. The objects I create are colloquialisms of my own making that reference ancient and current civilization. I believe an object can anchor the values of a culture acting as an artifact of its time. I question beauty with the artifacts I create.

Lucas Blalock – Artist Lecture
- (4:30 PM - 6:30 PM) Sponsored by: Division of Drawing, Painting, and Photography

Lucas Blalock’s work engages the ways that falseness or evident mechanics in photographs can bring both the picture and the pictured into sharper focus. He pursues this through a variety of overlapping strategies (often involving Photoshop) that in some way alienate the “natural” view generally associated with photographic pictures. Blalock’s work employs this expanded notion of the photograph to consider a world that is ever more inhabited by the plasticities of the virtual.

Blalock’s pictures have been included in recent exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the the Walker Art Center, the Hammer Museum, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He has made a number of artist books including Towards a Warm Math (Hassla, 2011), Windows Mirrors Tabletops (Morel, 2013), Inside the White Cub (Peradam, 2014) and SPBH Subscription Series Vol. IIV (Self Publish Be Happy, 2014). Blalock is also active as a writer and has published in a number of artist’s books and periodicals including Aperture, Foam, Mousse, and Objectiv. Blalock was born in 1978 in Asheville, North Carolina and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Opening Reception for William Underhill's "Circle and Square," at the Cohen
- (All Day) Circle and Square, a survey of William Underhill’s cast bronze, iron, and aluminum sculptures, features pieces dating from 1960 through his current work. Circle and Square opens April 15th with a reception for the artist from 6-8pm, and will run through August 4, 2017.

Underhill’s work formally explores the vessel and architectural form. Circle and Square highlights sculpture that demonstrates a sophisticated use of geometry. Underhill’s process for generating new sculpture relies heavily on drawing as he cuts and reassembles sketches, exploring new planes to discover new form, searching for a tension found in the “merger of opposites.” The sketches become plasticine forms from which molds are taken before the piece is cast in wax, and finally, in metal.

Armchair Explorers by Ryan Rennie
- (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Sponsored by:SOAD

Armchair Explores navigates moments in contemporary North American culture that provide us with a collapse of both time and place. This arises through a variety of practices, motifs, or regional styles that stem from global flows, appropriations, and hybrids. I am inspired by the ability to access imagery cross-culturally and how this intertwines with a pursuit for authenticity that arises in the form of new Americana. From opening a history book, wandering on google street view, or meandering through a local emporium, one can easily experience a flattening of both time and place in reference and imagery. In these moments anthropology becomes suspended between the real and imagined and it is here that I aim to give shape to a new exoticism, one that perceives itself in real time and anticipates both its problems and poetics. It is not my goal, however, to revisit a type of twenty-first century primitivism, but to acknowledge how the archaic enters our contemporary language with little reference to origin though still in search for the authentic: simultaneously truth and lie. This removal of provenance is typical in contemporary pop culture and the consumer market. I aim to appropriate the appropriated as a means of reflecting on the first removal and any absurdity that may arise in its initial theft.

William Newman-Wise’s MFA thesis show consists of sculpture, photography, and a book.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 5th, 7 - 9pm

Show Dates: Friday, May 5th - Saturday, May 13th
Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri 11 - 4pm and Sat-Sun 1 - 3pm

Statement:

A is face down, nude, in front of C.

C sits cross-legged on my studio chair.

BACK is written in pencil on a plywood cutout.

C stretches his arm out to A.

A holds the mirror.

W is in the reflection.

“sweat silhouette” explores the artist directing through photography and being directed through sculpture.

Slowness pervades my touch and movements through the studio and minutes walking home. Images and objects move fluidly between abstraction and representation. Focus emerges and slips away. The physical and emotional distance between two people echoes a lingering tension in my studio between myself as photographer, myself as sculptor, myself and material, and image and object.

IEA Artist in Residence: Donald Ha?I Phu´ Daedalus
- (All Day) Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

Donald Daedalus of Bronx County, NY, will be visiting the IEA for an artist residency over the week of June 5th. Donald, who received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, arrives at new ideas through the use and invention of tools. Workflows, physical instruments, methodologies, even projects themselves work into the advancement of his projects. This philosophy even carries over into his video work. These tools seek to address a main theme in his work – suspicion, questioning external experiences and information and testing beliefs to see if they hold up to scrutiny.
Donald’s proposal is connected to an ongoing project titled The Illinois River Project where he is designing a system to use the bonemeal of invasive carp in Illinois to remediate soil of lead pollution in industrial neighborhoods, which can cause delinquent behavior and learning disabilities. Artistic creations occur throughout the entire process as communities participate and learn about the health hazards present and what can be done. All of this has been meticulously documented and, at the IEA, Donald intends to created books and digital prints from this project, educational material, and further edit video footage into completed works.
The Institute for Electronic Art’s Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Artist’s Lecture by Kelcy Chase Folsom
- (4:30 PM - 6:30 PM) Sponsored by: New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University

This faculty lecture will be an overview of the professional practices and works of Ceramic Artist Kelcy Chase Folsom. He received his MFA in Ceramics from University of Colorado Boulder and his BFA from Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been a resident artist at numerous residencies including the Center for Ceramics in Berlin, Germany, The Hambidge Center in Rabun Gap, Georgia, and The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His work has been shown in over forty exhibitions nationwide. Folsom has taught at The George Washington University, The Corcoran College of Art and Design, Maryland Institute College of Art, and University of the Arts. He is currently the Robert C. Turner Teaching Fellow in Ceramic Art at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He lives and works in Alfred, New York.

Artist Statement:
My romantic life, at once tender and desperate, is the substance of my work. More specifically, I am interested in the ways that I project and receive desire (as Roland Barthes said, “I am devoured by desire, the impulse to be happy”), and negotiate my own relative experiences within it. This endless exchange between lovers – the absences, the expectations, the gravities, the intimacies, the small catastrophes – is the realm into which I want to invite viewers.

The lecture includes examples of art in contexts beyond the conventional gallery system and highlight various approaches—including her own—to navigating the world with art.

Liz Ainslie “The Part of Sight” and Desiree Leary “Real Lookers”
- (6:00 PM - 9:00 PM) The Cohen Gallery will open concurrent exhibitions by Liz Ainslie and Desiree Des on September 15, through October 19, 2017.

Liz Ainslie “The Part of Sight”
The elements within Liz Ainslie’s paintings function as fundamental building blocks of perception—represented and rearranged. As a poet might reorder the parts of speech, Ainslie uses the language of abstract painting as a structure upon which to develop a visual investigation of human perception. To this end, the artist has developed a vocabulary of non-objective forms that sidle up with everyday objects, bodies, architecture, and the natural world.
Equally important to Ainslie’s work is her manipulation of space through the use of color theory. Each of her paintings holds a record of the color relationships developed by mixing oil paint on the palette and drawing from the memory of observed color. Ainslie uses photography as a sketchbook, capturing interactions between architecture, light with natural interventions on human spaces.

Desiree Des “Real Lookers”
Using consumer-grade cameras, on-demand printing processes, and readymade home goods, Brooklyn-based artist Desire Des examines the tension between the photographic image and its physical presence in space. The works presented in Real Lookers often upend viewer’s expectations by throwing the ordinary legibility of snapshots and household wares into question. New perspectives are overlaid on functional objects—like plates, picture frames, and blankets—by compounding their appearances with imagery referring back to themselves. In this fashion, American life’s everyday materialism is represented through the interaction of its most familiar implements and their own images—that is, between reality and its depiction.

Des often creates socially engaging contexts for her art multiples, awarding them as prizes at public events, mailing them through the post, or selling them at a low cost in retail environments of her own devisement. This ensures that almost any viewer can choose to take something home and experience it on their own terms—even (and especially) if that means the works are placed into contexts beyond the artist’s original intention or control. In this way, Des hopes to encourage conversation about the role of art outside of traditional galleries and underscore how seeing a work over time changes both it and the viewer.

For this show, Des has created a self-service, honor-system, pay-as-you-wish Souvenir Shop where visitors may take home a postcard or poster and “pay” with their own artworks or other monetary and non-monetary offerings. These transactional goods will be displayed on pedestals in the gallery, and contributors are welcome to add the Real Lookers exhibition to their résumé.

Topic: "The past, present and future of lithography: From Art to the Impossibly Small"

I will discuss the history of lithography to show that this technique has been used to reproduce images for a long time and how it has recently been updated. Now the process involves light, much like photography, and how it has recently been updated. Now the process involves light, much like photography, and has been miniaturized so that it can be used in the electronics industry to make tiny integrated circuits for your smartphone and other devices. The future of lithography involves additional tricks and new chemicals, but the fundamental process remains the same.

Trade Objects for Art at the Cohen
- (All Day) As part of her exhibition "Real Lookers" at the Cohen Gallery, artist Desiree Des ('01) invites community members to exchange art or other monetary and non-monetary offerings for the posters, postcards, and hand-made buttons in her self-service, honor-system Souvenir Shop inside the gallery. Items exchanged for art souvenirs are put on display and become a community-sourced exhibition within the exhibition.

Using consumer-grade cameras, on-demand printing processes, and readymade home goods, Brooklyn-based artist Desire Des examines the tension between the photographic image and its physical presence in space. The works presented in Real Lookers often upend viewer’s expectations by throwing the ordinary legibility of snapshots and household wares into question. New perspectives are overlaid on functional objects—like plates, picture frames, and blankets—by compounding their appearances with imagery referring back to themselves. In this fashion, American life’s everyday materialism is represented through the interaction of its most familiar implements and their own images—that is, between reality and its depiction.

Des often creates socially engaging contexts for her art multiples, awarding them as prizes at public events, mailing them through the post, or selling them at a low cost in retail environments of her own devisement. This ensures that almost any viewer can choose to take something home and experience it on their own terms—even (and especially) if that means the works are placed into contexts beyond the artist’s original intention or control. In this way, Des hopes to encourage conversation about the role of art outside of traditional galleries and underscore how seeing a work over time changes both it and the viewer.

For this show, Des has created a self-service, honor-system, pay-as-you-wish Souvenir Shop where visitors may take home a postcard or poster and “pay” with their own artworks or other monetary and non-monetary offerings. These transactional goods will be displayed on pedestals in the gallery, and contributors are welcome to add the Real Lookers exhibition to their résumé.

Topic: "Hello, This is Edgar Wallace Speaking"
The German Krimi (Crime Film)

From 1959 to 1973, over forty West German films were adapted from the works of British author Edgar Wallace (and his son, Bryan Edgar Wallace). These works, known as Krimis, were hybrids of the larger crime and thriller genres and delivered very stylish and atmospheric entertainment to post-World War II Germany.

Speaker: Colleen Culley
Title: "Dude Moves: Versions of Meaning in this Pop-Culture Body-language Stuff"

After years of teaching embodied communication in businesses and at Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, I have grown frustrated by the messages around movement taught in most body language courses and the support they garner from their pop-culture counter-parts. Through the lens of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis, this discussion reflects on movement coaching and interpretation in body-language literature and pop-culture (Saturday Night Live, John Wayne, Big Lebowski) and their versions of an embodied and powerful masculinity.

Closing Reception at the Cohen Gallery on Main Street

Closing Thursday:
Liz Ainslie "The Part of Sight"
The elements within Liz Ainslie's paintings function as fundamental building blocks of perception-represented and rearranged. As a poet might reorder the parts of speech, Ainslie uses the language of abstract painting as a structure upon which to develop a visual investigation of human perception. To this end, the artist has developed a vocabulary of non-objective forms that sidle up with everyday objects, bodies, architecture, and the natural world.

Equally important to Ainslie's work is her manipulation of space through the use of color theory. Each of her paintings holds a record of the color relationships developed by mixing oil paint on the palette and drawing from the memory of observed color. Ainslie uses photography as a sketchbook, capturing interactions between architecture, light with natural interventions on human spaces.

Minyao: Art of the Everyday
a Selection of Chinese Folk Pottery
October 19, 2017 - January 1, 2018

Sponsored by: Alfred Ceramic Art Museum

Three new exhibitions are opening simultaneously on October 19, 2017.

Holding the Line, ceramic sculptor Stanley Rosen's (MFA Alfred '56) retrospective is revelatory. Rosen has long been a quiet visionary. His little known work from the late 1950's, 1960's and 70's will astonish.

Concurrent with the Rosen exhibition the Museum is celebrating the break out career of Kelsey Chase Folsom. His thoughtful, poetic and often challenging work will be on view in the exhibition hereafter. The Museum will also feature Minyao (peoples' pottery): The Art of the Everyday. Supported by a grant from the Asian Cultural Council-Rockefeller Foundation, the collection of work on view is the result of a concerted effort to honor and preserve a powerful, disappearing ceramic language of the Chinese people.

Museum hours are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Thursday; 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Some of these marks are egregious like the oil spills in the oceans, others are poetic like the subtly scuffed paint surrounding a well-used door knob. The artists in this exhibition are using residue as a tool for making their art. By making objects to create stains, mimic stains, or employ stains for creative reflection, these four artists reflect how residue can create a metaphor for life’s experience.

Roller Derby, the Best Self Care! - Women's and Gender Studies Roundtable
- (12:20 PM - 1:10 PM) Are you interested in Roller Derby? Would you like to hear about the experiences of a former Roller Derby skater and coach? This Friday, November 3, the speaker at the November Women's and Gender Studies Roundtable will be Vile Love It, who was a skater, coach and PR chairperson for the Queen City Roller Girls.
Roller Derby started as showmanship and hair pulling and has turned into an inclusive, gender-busting, feminist, empowering sport for both the skater and non-skater. It is one of two full-contact team sports for women, and so far, no one's uterus has fallen out! Around the globe, Roller Derby is one of the fastest growing sports. It's because hitting people (and getting hit) can be fun. Women are (generally) raised to be nice, caring, and supportive people. Roller Derby shows you can be all that and hit the stuffing out of your best friend.

The roundtable will be from 12:20 p.m. - 1:10 p.m. in the Judson Leadership Center. The roundtables are free and open the public. Light refreshments will be served.

Ram Error: an installation by Vav Vavrek
November 3 – December 1
Opening Reception: November 3

vav vavrek is a creator of things as well as an instigator of events. he tends to delve deeply into the refuse piles of the fortunate to aid in the expression of his deep seated agitations and anxieties. his works and his writing evoke some of the helplessness and anger of the new lost generation. his most recent works crawl through the grimy recesses of life through explorations of addiction, mental illness, poverty, gender roles, and politics. vav utilizes any and all materials that he can get to adhere to his greasy fingers, including: oil, acrylic, enamel, marker, spray paint, alternative photographic processes, scrap metal, broken electronics, low quality video, splinters of wood, and anonymous detritus.

- (All Day) Residue: Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall exhibit at the Cohen Gallery

Nov 3- Dec 8, Opening Reception 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3

The Cohen Gallery presents the work of Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall in “Residue,” opening 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3.

As humans we leave a trail behind us- a record of our personal histories. Some of these marks are egregious like the oil spills in the oceans, others are poetic like the subtly scuffed paint surrounding a well-used door knob. The artists in this exhibition are using residue as a tool for making their art. By making objects to create stains, mimic stains, or employ stains for creative reflection, these four artists reflect how residue can create a metaphor for life’s experience.

Exhibit at the Cohen Gallery: Residue
- (All Day) Residue: Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall exhibit at the Cohen Gallery

Nov 3- Dec 8, Opening Reception 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3

The Cohen Gallery presents the work of Caroline Hayes Charuk, Terry James Conrad, Ron Lambert, and SV Randall in “Residue,” opening 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Friday, November 3.

As humans we leave a trail behind us- a record of our personal histories. Some of these marks are egregious like the oil spills in the oceans, others are poetic like the subtly scuffed paint surrounding a well-used door knob. The artists in this exhibition are using residue as a tool for making their art. By making objects to create stains, mimic stains, or employ stains for creative reflection, these four artists reflect how residue can create a metaphor for life’s experience.
