The exhibition features Bearden’s beautiful, lush, abstract works that preceded his well-known collages. Focusing mostly on the artist’s unknown work, produced in the 50s and early 60s, the show is comprised of exquisite, fully-abstract watercolors, oil paintings, and mixed media collages. This is the first public viewing for many of the works. On view through December 22, 2017. Spectacular! For more information, visit http://bit.ly/2wGfEYW.
“Janet Biggs: A Step On the Sun” . The artist’s recent video installation documents sulfur workers as they extract minerals from inside a fiery volcano—with nothing but bandanas covering their mouths. The miners scale the exterior of the active volcano, and then descend into its roiling interior to extract the sulfuric rocks and shards. The extraordinary video that results, “A Step On the Sun,” will be on view through December 22, 2017. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/2j2DvgQ.
“A Studio in the Gallery: The Playful Universe of Ignacio Iturria” is one of Uruguay’s leading artists. In his amazing paintings, he creates small worlds that pose big questions. He addresses urban life, social currents, and fantasy, and pushes us to connect our instinct for play and fantasy with adult concerns and memories. Iturria will create a “living studio” during his two-month residency at Purchase College, working with students and meeting the public as well. Remarkable!

Pattern in Motion is an exhibition of paintings by artist Marcia Santore, on view at the UConn-Stamford Art Gallery from October 28 through December 1. Santore’s nonrepetitive patterns and vibrant colors play with stability and instability, balancing on that almost indefinable point between recognizable subject matter and complete abstraction. The result can be ambiguous yet emotionally resonant. The viewer is invited to linger, to follow the lines where they lead, as the shape unfolds from their labyrinthine paths.
