From Garbage to Garb at American Mural Project Gala

Fun Fashion

Old clothing, bedspreads, roping, turkey feathers and beaver bones may be trash to most, but to Debby Moore of Sharon, they are haute couture. Moore’s wearable art, “Marvelized Memorabilia,” was among the nearly 40 designs to grace the catwalk at the American Mural Project’s Art of Work gala fundraiser “Recycled Runway” on Saturday, Sept. 28.

Contrast, Shifting Planes, Relevance and Relativity

Art

There is an opening of real interest coming to Standard Space in Sharon. Theo Coulombe, the proprietor, has discovered a brain-slapping body of work by Siobhan McBride.
She distills physical experience. She imposes relevance on rooms she finds, and to see it is to feel multiple unfolding events wrapped in the stillness of paint. To lift her words out of context: “Everything you’re thinking or reading all gets laid on top of one another.”

Shimmering Texture, Tone and Individuality

Art: ‘Tales from the Golden Age and Other Stories’

Photographer John Atchley’s gold leaf work is the centerpiece and highlight of his current solo show at the Hunt Library in Falls Village. “Tales from the Golden Age and Other Stories” encompasses a beguiling group of landscape and still life photographs. 
It is clear that the artist has not been limited by a narrow definition of photography and his work benefits greatly from this freedom. As he notes in his artist statement, “I have been wanting to get away from what I call flat photography, i.e., a normal print on paper.”

Tapestries of Landscapes and Flowers

Art: ‘Presently (Formerly)’

North Elm Home in Millerton is hosting a show of paintings by Lilly Woodworth, the Sharon-based artist. Woodworth works in oils, employing an extensive and enlivening color palette. In one landscape, the colors seem drawn from the Southwest, others are Matisse-bright, while trees may appear as sweeps of reds and orange or clusters of layered greens. The artist calls herself “a landscape and flower painter,” and she delivers both in the show, which feels comfortably at home in the North Elm space.

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.
