The National Juried Exhibition includes artwork in all media. SQUARED explores the concept and/or literal format of the square or cube. All works submitted conformed to this basic theme. Jurors for the show were Eric Berkemeyer, curatorial assistant for the Denver Art Museum Department of Native Arts, and Randy Pijoan, who established Ventero Open Press Fine Art. The show was curated by Eugene Schilling, Adams State professor of art, and Charise Mixa, Adams State graduate art student.


Berkemeyer said creators of the strongest works in the show balanced the use of multiple approaches to stunning effect. "I am pleased that we could include all of the artists represented here and congratulate them on their good work."


The Hatfield Gallery "Best of" Student Show reception is also Friday, March 14. Both exhibits continue through April 4.

Review: ART F CITY

"ART F CITY: As relevant as Eric Fischl. New York art news, reviews and culture commentary."


Compass New Directions at Black and White Gallery in Williamsburg
by Art Fag City on November 8, 2007 · 4 comments Reviews

YUKI NAKAMURA
Yuki Nakamura, Dream Suspended, 2006, porcelain, neon wire, AC drivers, dimensions variable Katsura Okada, Zest, 2007, 1,020 rice paper rolls and color SUMI ink, Photograph: B.

An artist recently told me he found the effort of visiting shows outside Chelsea generally yielded better results, but that the allure of looking at a lot of work at once usually won over. Having spent a good deal of time this week looking at over sized and ostentatious spaces housing like minded art in that neighborhood, this conversation held particular resonance for me. In particular, it reminded me that I should really discuss Compass: New Directions, an exhibition curated by Jill Conner currently on display at Black and White Gallery in Williamsburg simply because it provides some relief to the showier Chelsea scene.
Carol Boram-Hays , Wall: Limbo, 2005, mixed media, 3 x12 feet, Ground: Lethe, 2007, mixed media, dimensions variable. Photograph: B.

If nothing else, the work of the nine artists showcased in Conner’s exhibition share an interest in formalism, frequently through repetition of motif and material. Yuki Nakamura employs numerous porcelain soccer balls that hang from color strings and are attached to a motorized pulley system on the ceiling to create a moving arrangement of forms. Katsura Okada displays yellow rice paper rolls in clusters that take on a beautiful amorphous shape on the wall, and the solid cement and rebar formations in the courtyard by Carol Boram-Hays suggest movement that is literalized by the sculptures within the gallery space.

 Gallery I: 
Generations IX: The Red/Pink Show!
A biennial benefit exhibition of art made by women.
 
The Generations series was started in 1997 as a fundraising exhibition to commemorate the 25th anniversary of A.I.R. Gallery.

Gallery II:
Linda Kuehne
Suburban Landscapes: The Architecture of Nowhere
 
Kuehne re-interprets the landscape through a contemporary lens, exploring the sublime as it does, or doesn't exist today. She photographs mundane objects juxtaposed against the landscape, combining the literal with the suggestive and abstract. Her work frequently contains geometric shapes, stark forms, swaths of color that divorce the images from the illusory depth perspective one usually associates with photography, rendering her ideas and concerns in an almost painterly, metaphoric way.

Gallery III:
Liz Biddle, Nancy Lasar and Ann Sgarlata
Ephemeral

Ephemeral includes paintings, mixed media and prints from three accomplished women artists - Liz Biddle, Ann Sgarlata and Nancy Lasar. While these artists' works are similar in their portrayal of the transient nature of life, the moods they create and the media they employ are vastly different. The works of these three artists have been exhibited in museums and galleries both in the U.S. and abroad.  They are also represented in prestigious public and private collections.
