Four Artists At Re Institute

Art

The depth and breadth of a group exhibition being held at the Re Institute in Millerton, N.Y., warrants a dedicated visit. The artists represented are Hong Hong, Brigitta Veradi, Richard Baim and Peter Fulop.
Hong Hong’s work originates as huge sheets of paper, handmade from mulberry bark,  treated with ash, and imbued with dyes. The paper is made in the out-of-doors, in a yard or a parking lot, on a modular mold measuring 12 x 8 inches. Each sheet  takes about one day to make.

An Audubon Extravaganza

Nature

John James Audubon (1785-1851), the French-born artist who gave us “The Birds of America” — 435 life-size prints — continues to have a hold on the popular imagination as he approaches his 235th birth anniversary.
Why?
His accomplishments in fine art didn’t rise to the level of many of his 19th-century contemporaries, and his science was often suspect. Likewise today, for veracity, his birds have long since been surpassed (by Peterson, Sibley and others), as has his scientific knowledge.

Lover of Light at Argazzi

Art

A show of new works by Richard Segalman highlights the vibrant, expressive work of an artist who had his first exhibition nearly 60 years ago. In “Romancing the Light,” which is open through October 12 at Lakeville’s Argazzi Art, Segalman, a painter based in Woodstock, N.Y., delivers just what the show’s title promises. Whether working in oil, watercolor, pastel or monotype, it is the artist’s use of light that animates his images, makes colors more lustrous, moves gracefully across canvases and infuses his work with an effervescent beauty.

Marjory Reid Honored by Salisbury Family Services

Art

Marjory Reid’s paintings are exuberant, full of light, color, and movement, like the artist herself. This year Salisbury Family Services will celebrate Reid at an exhibition and cocktail reception at the Salisbury School. There will be a dinner afterward at Scott and Thao Mattlock’s barn to raise money for the venerable institution. This event, honoring the popular former Indian Mountain School and Hotchkiss art teacher and now full-time painter, will help SFS to raise money to help people help themselves.

White Gallery Summer Show

Art

It felt right that White Gallery’s latest show, “A Summer State of Mind,” opened on a weekend when the first hints of fall entered into the air. The group exhibit is threaded through with moods and reminders of summer, rather than holding itself to a vow to recreate the season itself. The show is comprised of the work of nine artists —three of them at The White Gallery for the first time — and ranges from oil paintings to photography, to fabric art to monotypes across rural and urban landscapes.

Art That Speaks To Us and to Each Other

Art

At Craven Contemporary, the exhibition “Conversations with Alex Katz” has an all-star roster of artists. There is surprisingly little buzz in and around the gallery, but this exhibition does not need to make any extra noise. The quieter the better, so the works can speak with each other.

Large Scale Portraits Tell Stories of Immigration

Photography

Long before immigration became the hot button issue it is now, in 2004, photographer Joe Standart saw the city of New London, Conn. as a place to begin exploring this growing  American concern. With his larger than life portraits of people that became his organization Portrait of America’s, “WE ARE: A Nation of Immigrants.” Standart began this project of publicly displayed art in New London but has subsequently exhibited large scale portraits of Americans in Hartford, New Haven and now at the Hotchkiss School.
