Artist Talk: Thursday, Feb. 7 from 3 - 4 p.m. in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center, Auditorium
Opening Reception: Thursday, Feb. 7 from 4 - 6 p.m. in the Teaching Gallery

Guest-curated by Janice Caswell and Erick Johnson

The exhibition, curated by New York City-based artists Janice Caswell and Erick Johnson, is an expanded and updated version of one mounted in September 2017 at LABspace in Hillsdale, NY. In addition to Caswell and Johnson, Double Vision: Artists Who Instagram features work by Rosaire Appel, Joan Grubin, Mary Lum, Tom Martinelli, Doreen McCarthy, Tom Nicol, Chris Sauter, Karen Schifano and Karen Schiff.

“Double Vision” investigates the sometimes blurred line between studio and street. When the artist leaves the studio, what do they “see” and what do they photograph? Is it an extension of their vision, a corollary practice, or something in between? How do the two feed each other? By offering instant options to edit, display, share and store images, the smartphone has changed how we interact with what we see. As the curators’ awareness grew of the many other artists using Instagram, it was apparent that the photos seem directly connected to the art made in the studio, though none of the artists had yet presented these photographs as their primary art form.

Barbara (Babs) Owen – Vivid Forms: Cut Paper and Installations

Barbara (Babs) Owen – Vivid Forms: Cut Paper and Installations PostcardOct. 26 – Dec. 2, 2017

Barbara (Babs) Owen's exhibition of wall installations is composed entirely of hand-painted and cut paper. Owen, a trained sculptor who has been painting for several years, presents cut paper works that blur the line between painting and sculpture. The Rhode Island-based artist's compositions recall lace or crochet work yet are free of recognizable or repeating patterns, and invite the viewer to examine the subtle boundary between flat work and the third dimension.

Jonathan Kirk – Studio Maquettes

Jonathan Kirk – Studio Maquettes PostcardSept. 14 – Oct. 14, 2017

Utica artist Jonathan Kirk presents an exhibition of models and studies. Kirk's sculptures, while abstract, are evocative of a wide range of sources, from the natural and organic world to forms of industrial and naval architecture. The works explore the intersection between the artist and the engineer, but still embody the mysterious nature of what might be called s"cultural machinery" and demonstrate how the collective visual unconscious is plundered and sampled to create forms that are at once familiar yet new.

So That I Might Speak to You of Your Magnificence: Sculpture, Drawings and Installation by Sarah Walko

So That I Might Speak to You of Your Magnificence: Sculpture, Drawings and Installation by Sarah Walko PostcardFeb. 2 - March 4, 2017

So That I Might Speak to You of Your Magnificence, an exhibition of sculpture, installation and drawings by Brooklyn artist Sarah Walko explores the mythic possibilities of objects, images and imagination. The artist mines the unknowable space between her combined materials for new possibilities of narrative, essence and reality. Using such disparate found materials as animal bones, bird nests, gems, flora, texts and test tubes, Walko distills their enigmatic qualities through juxtapositions that establish unexpected tableaux or situations. As ancient alchemists sought in their proto-scientific experiments a physical manifestation for intangible transitions of spirit and essence, Walko funnels these new relationships between objects to evoke the irrational and the illusory much as a shaman unites good and evil or consciousness and physical existence.
