Exhibition. American Abstraction: The Print Revival of the 1960s and ’70s @ Bruce Museum Tickets
Dec 5 2017 @ 10:00 am – Mar 4 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Exhibition. American Abstraction: The Print Revival of the 1960s and ’70s @ Bruce Museum |  |  |

American Abstraction: The Print Revival of the 1960s and ’70s at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich, Connecticut, through March 4, 2018.

The early 1960s marked a significant turning point in American printmaking: the rise of communal studios provided new avenues for creative and technical exchanges between artists.
Many of the artists included in the Bruce Museum’s upcoming exhibition, American Abstraction: The Print Revival of the 1960s and ’70s, which opens on December 2, 2017 and continues through March 1, 2018, pushed the printmaking media in new and exciting directions. From vibrant biomorphic forms and primitive marks to lively calligraphic gestures and bold color-field patterning, the works in American Abstraction highlight the evolution of abstract art in printmaking during two exciting decades.
These new-style printmakers began to take on some of the responsibilities of publishers and dealers, helping to streamline the production and distribution of artists’ prints. Artists formerly rooted in the solitary studio practices of Abstract Expressionist painting began to collaborate regularly with master printmakers. Some, like Robert Motherwell, even established their own workshops. In California, the emergence of collaborative presses helped to rescue lithography from virtual extinction—which in turn made abstract prints readily available to American collectors.
The American Abstraction exhibition features 23 works by 13 artists. Most are drawn from the splendid gift of Judith and Stephen Wertheimer to the Bruce Museum and include prints produced by Ernest de Soto of The Collectors Press Lithography Workshop and Irwin Hollander of Hollander’s Workshop.
“Thanks to Steven and Linda Wertheimer’s fantastic gift, the Museum’s print collection is home to some of the twentieth-century’s most influential artists,” says Elizabeth Smith, exhibition curator and 2017-18 Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow.
All of the prints in American Abstraction are from the Museum’s permanent collection, and many are being exhibited at the Bruce for the first time. Also on display is Alexander Calder’s color lithograph Abe Ribicoff (1974), a gift of Barbaralee Diamonstein and Carl Spielvogel; and Louise Nevelson’s Totem’s Presents (1965), an etching and aquatint that is a gift of the “I Have a Dream” Foundation of Stamford, CT.

“Printmaking is often overshadowed by other mediums that artists were working in during 1960s and ’70s,” says Smith. “Art critics and historians of the time debated action painting or minimalist sculpture, but printmaking was seldom discussed in academic circles. I wanted to demonstrate that it was just as important in the development of abstract art through the post-war era and beyond.”
Presented in the Museum’s Bantle Lecture Gallery, this exhibition is underwritten by the Connecticut Office of the Arts and The Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund.

The Bruce Museum is located in a park setting just off I-95, exit 3, at 1 Museum Drive in Greenwich, Connecticut. The Museum is also a 5-minute walk from the Metro-North Greenwich Station. The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm; closed Mondays and major holidays. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students with ID, and free for members and children less than five years. Individual admission is free on Tuesday. Free on-site parking is available and the Museum is accessible to individuals with disabilities. For additional information, call the Bruce Museum at (203) 869-0376 or visit the website at brucemuseum.org.

Art Opening: “Venus Fly” at Flinn Gallery @ Flinn Gallery, Greenwich Library Tickets
Dec 14 2017 – Jan 24 2018 all-day
Art Opening: “Venus Fly” at Flinn Gallery @ Flinn Gallery, Greenwich Library |  |  |

“Venus Fly” features new abstract work by three female artists each
working in different media: large-scale paintings, mixed media wood
carvings, and ceramics. Super fresh and super fly! Running from December 14, 2017 through January 24, 2018, the show features the work of Becca Lowry, Lauren Mabry, and Alyse Rosner.

Alyse Rosner’s large-scale acrylic paintings begin with graphite rubbings from nature, then are built up in layers of pattern and color to create what she terms
“a world that spreads out to every edge. I am interested in toxicity and how we are altering the world.” Highly regarded by fellow artists, the Westport resident participated in the Radius program at the Aldrich Museum and is the recipient of two Connecticut State grants. She has shown extensively, most recently at the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University. 


Becca Lowry’s wall-hung wood sculptures are organically shaped carvings, woven and painted in multiple layers to form what the artist describes as “modern interpretations of warrior shields. These pieces are built to protect, each custom-made to safeguard against a particular threat. One will ward off an impending storm, another will scatter demons, a third will hold tight to your heart while you do something ridiculously, recklessly brave. I love that shields operate on both a symbolic and functional level.” Lowry’s work has been shown at VOLTA Art Fair and Governors Island and featured in Artforum. Lowry lives and works in Branford, CT.



Philadelphia-based Lauren Mabry states that her ceramics “capture the ephemeral state of glaze when its in the process of being poured neither a solid
nor a liquid.” Highly colored and based on a classic cylindrical shape, Mabry’s artworks are paintings in circular form. Mabry won the 2014 Emerging Artist Award from the National Council on Education for Ceramic Arts, received a Pew Fellowship, and has work in several museum collections.


“Exhibiting female artists shouldn’t be considered a political statement in 2017,” states Venus Fly Curator, Tracy McKenna.
“Women make up the majority of MFA students and professional artists, yet continue to be under-represented in commercial galleries and museums. The Flinn Gallery’s all female volunteer committee seeks to redress that balance by featuring three female artists working in different media but
with a shared commitment to material-based abstraction.”

Events:

December 14: The show’s opening reception, 6 – 8 pm


December 16, 10 am – 5 pm – Tax Free Day

January 5: Art Lounge before the Friends Friday Film from 6 -7:45pm, Flinn Gallery.

January 6: Artist Talk on Saturday, January 6 at 2:00 pm. With all three artists: Becca Lowry, Lauren Mabry, and Alyse Rosner

Photography Exhibit John T. Helmsorig @ East Fishkill Community Library Tickets
Jan 1 – Jan 31 all-day
Photography Exhibit John T. Helmsorig @ East Fishkill Community Library |  |  |

The Library is pleased to host an exhibit of black and white photos of Roadside Images across America by John Helmsorig. You will do a double take at these images and many will make you smile. The work will be on exhibit through the month of January.

A brief biography:

1953 – Easter Sunday, the medium strip somewhere along the Bronx River Parkway. I
exposed my first negative, an image of my mother, father, and sister in their
Sunday finest. Still have the negative.

1975 – Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois. Studied with Chuck Swedlund
and Dave Gilmore. Graduated with a BFA-Photography. Returned to New York
while attempting to determine what to do with a BFA-Photography.

1975 – 2008 – Submerged in the world of commercial photography. Retired as Senior
Photographer at Avon Products, Inc. midtown Manhattan.

My black and white images span forty years of looking at light and pondering objects that spark my interest. Visible light is electromagnetic radiation. In the 19th century James Clerk Maxwell determined through his equations that light actually exerts a pressure on objects in light’s path. G.F. Hull and Ernst Fox Nichols, at Dartmouth College in 1903, proved it. How else do you explain that, one day, a mundane object that you have passed a hundred times, now illuminated by a late afternoon sun, seems to hum, to vibrate? Photograph it or simply enjoy it.
