Layers and Folds art exhibition is now open at the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery at College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) until August 31, 2012.
“This exhibition of paintings, collages, sculptures, drawings and mixed media pieces examines ways in which artists use layers and folds of materials as diverse as canvas, paint, paper, plastic and steel to suggest space, depth, shapes, landscapes, the multi-faceted nature of human personality as well as the complexity of contemporary life and events,” says Dr. Virginia Fabbri Butera, director of the CSE Maloney Art Gallery.
The exhibition is open Thursday through Sunday, 4 to 8 p.m. The Gallery is closed Monday through Wednesday.
Work of Tri-state Artists Represented in Exhibition
The following artists have works in the exhibition:
Poetry Reading, Reception Accompanies Art Exhibition, July 26, 2012
A few pieces of art in the exhibition address issues of grief and recovery, which is the focus of the poets reading from Adanna Literary Journal's special summer 2012 issue, How Women Grieve. This event takes places Thursday, July 26, 2012, beginning at 6 p.m., in the Upper Lobby, Annunciation Center. The reading will be preceded and followed by a reception during which the Gallery will be open.
“There are several pieces in the exhibition that could be in conversation with the grief poetry,” said Lynne McEniry, poet, and guest editor and organizer of this journal and the reading, and CSE coordinator of academic affairs. “When visitors come on July 26 to view the exhibition and to hear the poetry, they will experience ways these pieces of art and the poems speak to each other.”
The Adanna Literary Journal contains the works of 36 poets, some of whom will be reading their poems on July 26th. That group includes Dr. Laura Winters, CSE professor of English, and Christine Redman-Waldeyer, founder of the Journal.
Experience an Evening of Culture: Shakespeare Under the Stars at CSE through July 29, 2012
After the reading, audience members can finish their evening watching a play with Shakespeare under the Stars. From June 20 to July 29, the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is staging The Comedy of Errors in the CSE outdoor Greek Theatre, next to the Annunciation Center. The play, one of Shakespeare’s earliest, tells the story of two sets of identical twins, separated as children. The plot thickens with mistaken identity, slapstick, puns and some interesting word play, making the play loads of fun for a relaxing, summer evening. For tickets to The Comedy of Errors, call the Shakespeare Theatre Box Office, 973-408-5600.
