Eric Levin’s “Vehicular” Curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis at Silverman and the Majestic Theatre Condominium Association

Thursday, September 5th, 2019

SILVERMAN and The Majestic Theatre Condominium Association presents Eric Levin’s “Vehicular”. This is curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis Director of 107 Bowers Gallery & Art Space.  The exhibit closes October 26th.

“Eric’s photos intrigued me because I felt I was peering into his world during his moment of solitude. And often catching unexpected humor,” says curator Kristin J. DeAngelis. “These are the moments I am highlighting in his exhibition.”

Eric Levin started taking pictures in college, partly because he was writing for the college paper, the BU News, which had a recent history of publishing dynamic photojournalism. He became fascinated with the medium and its modern masters—Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander and others. Levin graduated college in 1971, just as the art world was being forced, by artists like William Eggleston, to take color photography seriously. He had always loved color, in everything. The psychological qualities of color—ebullient, lewd, somber—grabbed him as a young photographer and never let go. The ordinary world, everyday objects, things that others would consider inanimate, don’t seem inanimate to him. “I never set out to shoot vehicles per se, or any other subject,” Levin says. “I am always on the lookout for the unexpected in the ordinary. If I have a fixation with vehicles, it is, I suppose, with the idea that they represent purpose, mobility and a certain kind of strength and durability, which nonetheless is as vulnerable as anything else in the world.”

 

Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening at Ivy Brown Gallery

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery invites you to explore the mystery and intrigue behind Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening Tuesday, September 10, 6-8pm.

Few know that the origins of the Bermuda Triangle myth began in New York City on a triangular piece of land that eventually became the foundation of the Triangle Building in the Meatpacking District.

Mystery and intrigue has long surrounded the Triangle Building, but the truly fantastical stories pre-date the building by thousands of years to the time of the ancient Aurora-Rhomans. Joshua Goode is currently excavating the ruins of a pre-historic zoo deep below the foundations of the Triangle Building that held creatures believed to live solely in the imagination. Majestic bronze sculptures of these mythical creatures and ornate altarpieces were left as prayer offerings which also included ritual human sacrifice.  (more…)

Village West Gallery hosts Stories from the Sea

Friday, August 30th, 2019
Village West Gallery is proud to host Stories from the Sea, the 2019 Teacher as Artist group show. Opening reception is on Wednesday September 4th 6 – 9pm; the show closes with a brunch reception on Sunday September 29th 1 – 4pm.

Drawing inspiration from the sea, a group of Jersey City Public School Art Teachers examine personal narratives, visual symbols and painting/ mixed media techniques through a series of professional development workshops lead by artist and former teacher Allison Green.
Through a combination of on site visits to the ocean and in-studio painting sessions, these teachers have reclaimed their identity as artists and together celebrate the symbols, stories and inspirational imagery of the sea in their work.
The Jersey City Public Schools power goal is for all educators to prepare students for college and career readiness. The Art Educators in this program demonstrate for students and the community at large the intrinsic value of the arts in achieving power goals.
The Teacher As Artist annual exhibition was established in 1993.
