NYC exhibition weekend!

Exhibitions,Internships — KVH @ 12:22 pm, Friday, April 24th, 2009

For those of you in NYC this weekend, or this month, there are two excellent exhibitions worth checking out.

Firstly, the Jon Rappleye prints that were in production all fall and spring, until this past weekend, are premiering in Jon’s current show at the Jeff Bailey Gallery this week.  The opening was last night, but the show is up for a month.

More production shots at the Dolphin Press website.

Additionally, our very own May Yang had a print selected for the IPCNY New Prints 2009 exhibition (curated by Polly Apfelbaum!) which also opened this weekend.

More of May’s work is available on her website, and the list of other artists in the exhibition (albeit clumsily) are here!

Congratulations to both!

Spring 2009 Student Space Application

Current and Upcoming shows in and around Baltimore.

Exhibitions — KVH @ 11:18 am, Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

Many shows of interest are up or coming up in the baltimore area:

This Sunday is a huge sound and performance piece by the people of Shua Group called Public Moves. Our very own Brian Garner will be helping with the sound portion of the performance, taking place on Federal Hill and sure to be heard across the whole harbor. Performers are still welcome to join in the event provided you take place in a rehearsal on Saturday. Information is available on the Public Moves page.


The Great Halloween Lantern Parade takes place this Saturday in Patterson Park, sponsored by Nana Projects. This is a great event for people of all ages, and there is still room to participate I believe. It starts at 7:30.


Two alumnae and friends of the printmaking department have work on display at The Brewer’s Art (it’s about time they changed out their artwork).  Jodi Hoover and Adrienne Figus are in a 3 person show there from now through November 16th. Check it out!


Gary Kachadourian (someone everyone who intends to live in baltimore and make art should know!) has a show opening next week at the Gormley Gallery at the College of Notre Dame. Gary is a major supporter of the arts and is the Visual Arts Coordinator for the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts. (Think: Art Scape, Book Fair, Sondheim fellowship.) The exhibition is Life-Sized Prints and assorted Drawing Projects.  The McDonalds image to the left is a piece of a life-sized (30′ long?) image.

The exhibition is up from October 27 – Dec. 5, and the opening will be Saturday Nov. 1 from 4-6 PM.

But don’t take my word for it! See for yourself!

Mollie Goldstrom: works on paper 2005-2008

Exhibitions — printmaking @ 12:44 pm, Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

Mollie Goldstrom: Works on Paper 2005-2008 at Gurari Collections
Exhibition open through October 31, 2008
91 Charles Street Boston, MA 02114 

In her chosen mediums of intaglio and drawings, Mollie Goldstrom attempts to portray the “ambiguous space between opposing states of existence”. Referenced sources are popular folklore, personal myth, current events and environmental issues. Her work conveys a sense of whimsy while contending with allegorical, socio-political, and metaphysical challenges.

Revealed in such series as, Lumbering, or the Miscarriage of Use, Fail-Safe: Hunting and Gathering Spitzbergen, or the series, The Woods, they investigate ecological and global issues presenting universal concerns, which are subtly depicted at the most “local” or “everyman” level in her artwork. The artist reveals, through her intimate use of scale, stories of man’s relationship to nature. Our use and misuse of the environment are poignantly defined through this story-like manner in her art. This is the artist’s exception; to convey grave concerns with humble expression.
