Color: Primary to Tertiary

"Color which, like music, is a matter of vibrations, reaches what is most general and therefore most indefinable in nature: its inner power" - (Paul Gauguin)

Edges Transitions
April 6 - May 21, 2017
Suzanne H. Arnold Art Gallery
Lebanon Valley College

Edges | Transitions explores the moments of transition when one thing moves into another; the place where edges dissolve.  The exhibition is inspired by Pat Badt and Scott Sherk’s recent artist residency in Valletta, Malta.  As an island, Malta is a continuous edge.  Sharp cliffs define the edge of water and land, cultural conditions define an edge between Europe, Northern Africa, and the Middle East.  Its geographic location and long history of conflict have defined it as place of transition.

This exhibition will include sound audio work, large-scale video and color interventions along with individual color studies and small-scale video/sound pieces.  Viewers are invited to occupy a central viewing station (an island) to encounter a horizon of color, video and sound events.  Additionally individuals works may be seen as boats on the water, developing individual sound-color interactions.

The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present exhibition, UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN, curated by Indira Cesarine, featuring the work of female contemporary artists responding to the current social and political climate in America in light of the recent presidential election. The exhibit will take place from January 17- 28, 2017, opening the week of the presidential inauguration, with several events to take place including an opening reception on January 17th and event on January 22nd which marks the 44th anniversary of landmark case Roe vs Wade.
The UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN exhibit is presented in partnership with the ERA COALITION, a political organization that is working to support passage and ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, and a portion of proceeds will benefit their Fund for Women’s Equality. The Fund for Women's Equality is a charitable organization, working to raise awareness on gaps in the law that leave women without legal recourse from sex discrimination, and developing educational resources on the need for a constitutional provision to protect and promote equal rights for women. Founded by Jessica Neuwirth, author of "Equal Means Equal", the ERA Coalition board also includes Gloria Steinem, Teresa Younger and many other prominent women's rights activists.

“Right now it is important time for women to demonstrate solidarity in face of the threats upon us in regards to women's rights. The 2016 presidential election has brought to the surface extremes of sexism, racism and discrimination. Many women are deeply disturbed not only by the negative stereotyping and sexist attitudes towards women that have surfaced but also the threats to roll back women's rights. The “UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN” exhibit gives female artists a means to express themselves in regards to the social and political climate in America, and empower others with their visual imagery. We are proud to partner with the ERA Coalition and help raise money for their Fund for Women’s Equality. Right now more than ever women need to unify and work together to ensure that our rights, which were fought for with blood and tears for many decades, are not only assured, but continue to progress.” - Curator Indira Cesarine

FOX GALLERY NYC is pleased to exhibit recent work by Pat Badt and Scott Sherk, whose paintings and recordings ground and transport us in time and space.

Pat Badt is a painter of memory. Through specific coding of color and texture, her abstractions reference “overlooked events that make up daily routine...The layers of paint become a history, just as their historical sources come from specific events.”
Although she is deeply influenced by Agnes Martin and Brice Marden and their “connections to light, color and space through abstraction” it is Matisse ”whose joy of color and freshness is a daily inspiration and reminder.”

Pat Badt is Professor Emeritus at Cedar Crest College. She received an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and a BA from the University of California at Santa Cruz.She has exhibited in Brussels, NY, LA, and Philadelphia. Her work is included in collections in The American Embassy in Riga, Latvia, The Ruth Highs Collections of Artist Books at Oberlin College and Bryn Mawr College and the Allentown Art Museum.

"I love the physicality of sound and how it can occupy and define a space either mentally or physically. We exist within sound always: We do not have ear lids. How we shape it, and how we hear it has a profound impact on our lives”.  Initially as a sculptor moving around masses and forms, Sherk could, by manipulating sound, carve into space itself.
Ultimately I begin with sound work, and it seems it dictates how it wants to be realized--with video, objects or ethereally.”
His current exhibit incorporates all three expressions of sound work: Three field recordings in and stereo mix, with video, six laser etchings of sonograms on acrylic framed in shadow boxes, and a four channel sound piece, New Whitney, housed in a 7’ high tower and based on field recordings of room tones of each exhibition floor of The Whitney Museum, NY.
Scott Sherk has exhibited widely including at the Katonah Art Museum, NY, Allentown Art Museum, Kim Foster Gallery NYC, and Leslie Cecil Gallery, NYC. His solo exhibitions have been reviewed by the NY Times, and Art Forum. His sound work is on CD by 3 Leaves,
 and/ OAR, and released on the internet by Statisfield and Wandering Ear. He is a Professor/Artist in Residence at Muhlenberg College, where he has been recipient of the Class of ’32 Research Chair and the Hoffman Research Fellowship.
