India’s largest art museum and the country’s third largest museum will open an Islamic art gallery by next year.

The Salar Jung Museum in Hyderabad is believed to have the largest individual collection of antiques and art treasures in the world, attributed to Nawab Mir Yousuf Ali Khan, commonly known as Salar Jung III, a former prime minister of the once princely state . from Hyderabad Deccan.

The museum currently has over 2,500 rare Islamic objects, some of which have never been on display to the public before. However, these are, at present, presented in various galleries within Indian, Middle Eastern, European and Far Eastern collections. These will now be exhibited exclusively in one place, in the next gallery of Islamic art.

In an interview, the director of the Salar Jung Museum, Dr A Nagender Reddy, said Khaleej weather this Islamic art gallery was supposed to open much earlier, but plans were stalled due to Covid-19 and the unavailability of skilled labor.

Spread over 26,000 square feet on the second floor of the museum’s east block, the Islamic Art Gallery will feature items such as swords, ceramics, bulletproof vests, manuscripts, Persian rugs, copies of the Holy Quran. , celestial globes, astrolabes, textiles, jades, porcelain and glass objects with Koranic inscriptions and much more. While most of the artefacts relate to Islam, some also have ties to Muslim kings and nobles, poets, writers, and historians. Among the objects that will be a feast for the eyes are the oldest folio of the Koran on a parchment in Koufi script belonging to the 9th century, a copy of the Holy Quran from the 13th century, 365 copies of the Quran in Koufi, Naskh scriptures, nastaliq, raihan and thuluth, six astrolabes and celestial globes, salient emblems of Muslim science, a stand of miniature books (rehal) in jade bearing the name of Shams ud-Din Iltutmish (the ruler of the Delhi sultanate belonging to the Mamluk dynasty ), a fruit knife with a jade handle and inlaid with precious stones belonging to Queen Nur Jahan, archer’s rings of the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, which are in dark green jade, and autographed manuscripts with the seal and the signature of Mughal emperors Akbar and Aurangzeb.

An award-winning North East artist and children’s author will present his first solo exhibition at Hartlepool later this month.

The free exhibition titled “Under The Vapor Trails” by Simon Bartram from Tyneside opens at the Hartlepool Art Gallery on Saturday January 29 and runs through Saturday April 23.

Born in Jarrow and raised in Hebburn, a region in the North East previously defined by the heavy shipbuilding and mining industries, Simon grew up around the “hardy” figures who populated pubs and football terraces.

His exhibition revolves around paintings and drawings of these post-industrial men who, somewhat stereotypically, find their identity in the clothes they wear, the hairstyles they sport and the football teams that they wear. ‘they follow.

The men depicted in his portraits live in real and imaginary cities that are crossed by rivers that flow east into the North Sea. Above them, the skies are cut off by the vapor trails of planes leaving for distant places.

The Painted Men, however, still stick around and in the future, Simon’s ambition is to look beyond their hairstyles and hoodies and explore who they really are and what it means. to live in the Northeast.

“I can’t wait to show my work at the Hartlepool Art Gallery,” said Simon.

“It is such a privilege to have an exhibition in such a beautiful setting and I am delighted to engage with the city and its art lovers.”

As part of the exhibition, the Hartlepool Art Gallery created a new family play space based on Simon’s award-winning children’s books. Young and old alike will enjoy participating in space exploration and alien hunting with the character of Bob, the astronaut from Man on the Moon. A complete program of fun crafts and artists’ workshops will accompany the exhibition during school holidays and Saturdays.

“We are delighted to host Simon Bartram’s first solo exhibition at the Hartlepool Art Gallery. Simon’s striking and expressive portraits represent the changing nature of masculinity in the 21st century, ”says Georgina Ascroft, Director of the Museum and Gallery at Hartlepool Borough Council.

“Visitors will recognize many local caricatures that feature in Simon’s work and for a brief moment the viewer will be immersed in the spaces between pubs and football fields, where men might find themselves walking along the coastal path. or from the busy street to the next bolt hole, in a destination of their own.

“His models remain motionless, alone and enigmatic, sometimes slightly comical and absurd, filling their frames with their mass as a physical manifestation of their repressed and unheard of stories.”

Rise of Mass Media Culture Explored at Surrey Art Gallery with Interactive Installation – Surrey Now-Leader https://911gallery.org/rise-of-mass-media-culture-explored-at-surrey-art-gallery-with-interactive-installation-surrey-now-leader/ Wed, 05 Jan 2022 19:20:00 +0000 https://911gallery.org/rise-of-mass-media-culture-explored-at-surrey-art-gallery-with-interactive-installation-surrey-now-leader/ Art that delights in repetition and addresses the rise of mass media culture is featured in the winter exhibitions of the Surrey Art Gallery.

Art that delights in repetition and addresses the rise of mass media culture is featured in the winter exhibitions of the Surrey Art Gallery.

Opening on Saturday January 22 of the exhibition “P.Mansaram: The Medium is the Medium is the Medium”, centered on five decades of work of the deceased artist, and also “On Air”, a showcase of works of the permanent collection of the gallery. that illustrate “the way the media works to shape our worldviews – for better or for worse”. Free entry.

Organized by Rhys Edwards, “On Air” revolves around an interactive installation by the late media artist Nancy Paterson, who died in 2018. Entitled “Garden in the Machine”, the work invites visitors to pull a lever on a slot machine style device. which manipulates the images displayed on a series of nearby monitors.

“Each monitor goes through a series of TV clips from news programs, cartoons, game shows, religious programs, commercials and more,” according to an event notice. “Each time the lever is pulled, the resulting display is randomized, producing 729 different possible combinations of images.”

Although developed in 1993, Paterson’s installation is “timeless in its distillation of popular television culture.” By presenting visitors with random combinations of footage varying in tone from light comedy to serious reporting, Paterson anticipated the rise of the Internet and the now endless flow of content available to consumers. In places like Twitter feeds, Instagram’s “Explore” tab, or TikTok’s “For You” page, browsers can access an endless stream of terrifying and titillating posts. “

Also on display are “key selections” from SAG’s permanent collection, “many of which, like Paterson’s artwork, have never been exhibited before.” The works include an unusual double-sided print by 1970s video and media artist Michael de Courcy, photographs of the West Edmonton Mall by Vikky Alexander, and a colorful silkscreen print by Robert Davidson.

Meanwhile, Mansaram’s work is featured in a traveling exhibition curated by Indu Vashist and Toleen Touq, both with Ontario’s South Asian Visual Arts Center (SAVAC). The art exhibit was originally presented at the Justina Barnicke Gallery at the University of Toronto Art Museum in 2019 and later at the Art Gallery of Burlington in 2020.

For Panchal Mansaram, born in India, who died in 2020 while living in Ontario, “repetition was an artistic practice, repetition was meditation, repetition was spirituality, repetition fell in love, and as he has it. said, rehearsal was a way to find God, ”explains an event notice.

“Yet despite all this interest in repetition, Mansaram’s work is never repetitive. Figures and symbols appear and reappear in different spaces and configurations. Text and image play off each other. (The exhibition) shows how the artist used recurrence and reproduction through a variety of mediums. Visitors will see drawings, paintings, collages, texts, sculptures, xeroxes, silkscreens and films spanning more than five decades of the artist’s prolific career.

An exhibition opening event and curatorial conference will take place on January 22 from 6:30 p.m., followed by a conversation on Mansaram between Indu Vashist and Deepali Dewan on Saturday, February 5 at 2 p.m. The latter event is co-presented with Indian Summer Festival and moderated by the festival’s artistic director, Sirish Rao.

“Joy of the Photographic Print” is also on view at the Surrey Art Gallery until February 13th. The exhibition focuses on the alternative and traditional photography techniques of The Darkroom, whose members celebrate the slower and more laborious methods of producing photographic art.

SAG is also currently offering a two-channel video installation called “Naufragios” by Manuel Piña. Presented until March 20, 2022, the installation (in Spanish for “shipwreck”) captures the artist’s concerns about utopia, migration and space.

New to the gallery’s main entrance is the “Echoes” window mural, by Richmond-based artist Atheana Picha. The artwork “celebrates the cultural significance of Coast Salish mountain goat horn bracelets and the importance the animal has to the people of this land.”

The bracelets “have an elegant design that never fails to inspire me and other Salish artists,” Picha notes. “The bracelets show me that my ancestors took the time to design the utilitarian items in their lives, but also created work with the goal of creating something beautiful for themselves or a loved one. These pieces inspire me to take the time to create work that can work as something that can speak to my ancestors, but also to the dedication of my ancestors and mentors to visual design language.

Located at 13750 88 Ave. (Bear Creek Park), SAG is online at surrey.ca/artgallery, or call 604-501-5566. The opening hours of the gallery are Tuesday to Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Pink Roses: watercolor, 17.75 x 5.25 inches / signed lower right

Botanical artist, Jessica Tcherepnine was born in Sussex, England and as a child drew and painted flowers she found in her family’s garden. After attending a girls’ boarding school in England, she traveled to Florence, Italy, where she studied drawing and watercolor. Tcherepnine first worked at Christie’s Auction House in London, then at Christie’s in New York. She married investment manager Peter Tcherepnine in 1973. The couple divided their time between Manhattan and their farm near Millbrook, New York, where she tended a garden. It wasn’t until 1982, after leaving Christie’s, that she began to seriously paint plants. Largely self-taught, his garden has provided a cornucopia of subject matter for his wonderfully detailed watercolors – accurately captured on paper with his very perceptive eye. Tcherepnine herself said: “I always look up and down, for the bark and the fallen leaves, as well as for the flowers. This is the shape and color you are looking for. You paint what is, but you have the right to choose the elements. James White, former curator of the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, said that “his work is intense, decorative and scientifically precise.” She is a founding member of the American Society of Botanical Artists. Tcherepnine has had solo exhibitions in New York, London, Paris and Palm Beach, Florida and has won gold medals at the Royal Horticultural Society in London, England. His work appears at the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, in Pittsburgh; the British Museum of Natural History; Royal Horticultural Society; Lindley Library; Shirley Sherwood Collection (London) and the Benois Family Museum (Peterhof, Saint Petersburg, Russia). In 2003, one of his watercolors was presented to Princess Anne, to commemorate her visit for the launch of the British Memorial Garden in New York.

NEW MILFORD – Seasons by Thomas Adkins, an exhibition of recent works by the Southbury landscape painter, will run through January 31, 2022 at the Gregory James Gallery, 93 Park Lane Rd. Mr. Adkins, considered one of the best Northeastern Landscapers, features outdoor paintings of rural scenes from Northwestern Connecticut that capture his imagination, as well as works from trips to Vermont and to Monhegan Island and Maine’s mid-coast.

In October, his painting “Cattails On Bashakill” won first place at the Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival out of nearly 200 submitted works.

He also won two awards at the festival in 2020 as part of a long list of accolades.

Lyrical, evocative and softly rhapsodic, Mr. Adkins’ paintings capture evanescent moments in time when atmospheric conditions and lighting bring a bit of magic to the landscape.

“The moods, the mystery and the atmosphere, as well as the inherent conception of nature intrigue me, and I seek to unveil and express these qualities in my paintings, trying to document a specific place and time”, said the artist. “Every good landscape painting should have some idea of ​​how the artist feels about a particular place. Every day and every hour there is a different reaction of nature to our senses. “

ITHACA, NY – December and January traditionally bring group shows and holiday sales to major galleries in Ithaca. Along with exhibitions at the Gallery at South Hill, the Ink Shop Printmaking Center, and the Community School of Music and Arts, this year’s Annual Juried Show at the State of the Art Gallery (SoAG) features various works in media and approach. The national open-call exhibition, which runs until January 2, was judged by members of the gallery, with Rick Pirozzolo of the Arnot d’Elmira Museum as the judge of the award. Each artist is represented with one piece.

Not surprisingly, the era of the pandemic brings a new wrinkle. While last year’s edition was entirely virtual, this year’s edition is attempting an undeniably clunky in-person / in-line hybrid model. While all accepted artwork is “shown” on the gallery’s website, a number of works – most originally in traditional physical media – are not physically present in the gallery. Instead, a screen displays the missing works, including four of the five winners. (The show, usually for such an event, was judged from digital images.)

Those of us who enjoy seeing art in the flesh will be disappointed. Nonetheless, there is a lot of interest to be seen at the West State Street gallery location. The mix of Ithacan and national artists is a point of particular interest.

Several artists here will be familiar to local art lovers. Barbara Mink, a former SoAG member, contributes to “Gorge Walk Spring,” an abstract canvas in effervescent ink and signature layered acrylic. Using similar media on paper, local poet painter Laura Glenn offers a poetically indecipherable scriptorium in “Unriddling”. Marjorie Hoffman’s sculptural “Chrysanthemum” mosaic is distinctive and playful – bringing us closer to her flower.

Three smaller oil paintings are among the most engaging pieces here. Annemiek Haralson’s “Storm Over the Plains” has its merits, with its purple-blue alien clouds looming against a shaded horizon and a grassy expanse in the foreground. Lined in pale pink, two lightning branches form the perfect accent. Rendered in red and purple, James Cogbill’s “Transition” is notable for its blend of architectonic abstraction and conscious painting texture. In ocher, white and purple, Julie Waltz-Stalker’s “Bury it Deep” is another lavishly painted non-figurative piece – more outgoing and layered.

Carol Spence (Full Disclosure: One of my former art teachers at Ithaca High School) presents “Spring Break,” rendered in mostly pale hues and incorporating acrylic, monoprint, and pasted magazine text. The piece, characteristic of Spence’s locally exhibited work, participates in what might be considered a New Age update on turn-of-the-century symbolism: a mysterious female figure, vaguely pretentious imagery, colors and patterns. mismatched textures.

Watercolors, drawings, prints and illustrations have a more understated but sometimes very convincing presence. Sam Vann’s watercolor “Prince Edward Albatross” is perhaps the most memorable of several animal-themed works on paper: the bird’s white body is silhouetted against the realistic detail of earth upon which it rests. Anna Pausch’s black-on-white woodcut “Mums Gone Wild” is both effusive and precise. “Kamani Tree at Makua Study no.36”, a digital rendering by Stephen Yuen, has the punchy color separation feel of (some) traditional prints.






Chrysanthemum by Marjorie Hoffman


Teresa Yatsko, who has appeared on several local collective shows in recent years, explores the genre of the “altered book”. ‘Beyond Her Malignancy’, a signature work, incorporates found and manipulated books, which appear to be an original handmade book, as well as stones and pieces of trees. A photographic cutout of a bald, bare-back muscular man posing with arms raised invites viewers into this boxless diorama – full of barely decipherable text and fairytale evocation. There is something kitsch but undeniably compelling about his work.

Recently voted “Best Gallery in Ithaca” by readers of this publication, the State of the Art has long been the city’s consummate “average” gallery: middle, middle class, middle class. Always well presented and generally technically capable, members’ exhibits at SoAG tend to fall into familiar ruts. A monthly regimen often consisting of two or three person projectors and “themed” group exhibitions seldom showcases the more ambitious members of the co-op with the depth they deserve.

I have, to the chagrin of some, criticized the gallery in this regard in these pages. I stand by these remarks. More generously though, the gallery serves as a sort of foundation for the local art “world”: one that offers its members a measure of professionalism and security in a community that rewards art with sentimental but seldom appreciation. through deep understanding or consistent financial sustenance. .

In addition to SoAG’s annual jury photography exhibition (this year is scheduled for June), their general jury exhibition (no photo) offers a welcome break for regular visitors. Viewers interested in getting an overview of the varieties of art produced and exhibited in Ithaca would do well to also visit the group exhibitions at the Ink Shop and CSMA, which run until the end of January.
