DUSTY BOYNTON: THREE NEW EXHIBITIONS AT THE HELEN DAY ART CENTER

Dusty Boynton: Reliefs is on view at the Helen Day Art Center, Stowe, VT.

The exhibition runs June 22 – August 24, 2019.

Dusty Boynton is well known for her paintings on canvas and works on paper. This exhibition is a culmination of a series of her “Reliefs” – painted and cut figures on wood. This is the first exhibition of this type of work. The New York Times described Boynton’s work as “Childlike, but not childish.” The sophistication and emotional intelligence that pours through her gestural figures is powerfully resonating.  

Artwork: Dusty Boynton, Small Crowd, 2011-12. Structured relief, 32 x 33 inches

CAROL JACOBSEN: SYSTEM OF INJUSTICE | BRONX ART CENTER

Carol Jacobsen will be featured in the group show System of Injustice along side Bronx-based artists at the Bronx Art Center, The Bronx, NY.

The show will be on view August 7 through September, 2019. The opening reception will take place August 10, 6:30-9pm.

Inspired by Patricia Hill Collins’ examination of the matrix of domination, Systems of Injustice seeks to examine the structural (organization of power and oppression), disciplinary (the management and sustaining of oppression), hegemonic (legitimization of oppression), and interpersonal (the interactions and consciousness of oppressed people) domains of dominations intersect to create systemic oppression for people of color. By exploring the different ways these domains support and sustain each other, featured artists are confronting a system that has never been based on the equality of its participants. We are seeking works that examine race, gender, sexuality, educational equality, socioeconomic status, religion, citizenship status,  and the many other ways in which people of color are bereft in a world dominated by Western Thought.

ART.NOW.2019 METAMORPHOSIS: CHANGING CLIMATE| HEARST GALLERIES

Art.Now.2019
Metamorphosis: Changing Climate

EXHIBITION OPEN TO THE PUBLIC:
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2019 – THROUGH FALL 2019

Hearst Galleries
Hearst Tower

300 West 57th Street, 26 Floor
New York, New York 10019-3741

Featuring Artists:
Kenneth Burris, Janet Culbertson, Aleksandar Popovic

Oscar Wilde pointed out that Historians record the Past, Journalists chronicle the Present, but it is our Artists who divine the Future. They are the canaries in our collective coal mine. Artists dream dreams no one else has dreamt, conjure visions no one else has seen. They look beyond the horizon and see guideposts yet unseen.
Annually we survey in our Hearst Galleries a sampling of what artists are creating now, the conversations they have initiated and extended. This year, Climate Change preoccupies many minds and we have subtitled our 2019 edition of Art Now as metamorphosis: changing climate.
We hope you enjoy the experience. The images are extraordinary.
— Gilbert C. Maurer, Director & Former COO, Hearst

ANDY SWEET: THE LAST RESORT

Directed by Dennis Scholl & Kareem Tabsch, 70 minutes

The Last Resort  will have it’s theatrical premier at the Quad Cinema and the JCC Theater on the upper west side on 76 Street, the week beginning December 21, 2018.

Cameos of Denise A. Bibro, Director of Denise Bibro Fine Art!

You can view the trailer HERE

“Before the arrival of Miami Vice and MTV Spring Break, South Beach was home to the largest cluster of Jewish retirees in the country. Drawn by the small apartments, low cost of living, sunny weather, and thriving cultural life, they came by the thousands seeking refuge from the Northeast’s brutal winters. By the 1970s, these former New Yorkers had turned from seasonal visitors to year-round residents, making Miami Beach home to a population that was primarily over 70 and overwhelmingly Jewish. The Last Resort takes audiences on a journey to the iconic Miami Beach of that era through the lens of young photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe. With cameras in hand, they embarked on an ambitious 10-year project to document this unique chapter in the city’s history, which would soon be erased by the turbulent 1980s. Featuring interviews with Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan, filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, photographer Gary Monroe, and more, The Last Resort is a stunning testament to a community all but forgotten… until now.”
