September 14, 2021

The Moraine Valley Community College Fine and Performing Arts Center (FPAC) opens its Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery for exhibitions starting with Vida Sačić’s “Press and Clay” exhibition, from September 19 to October 25.

Sačić is a Chicago-based artist, designer and educator. His work in print media explores the relationship between print and language. She prints and creates large-scale installations, assemblages of prints on paper, textiles and fibers using movable type, touchable letters and a printing press. His works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions nationwide, including at the DeVos Art Museum (Michigan), the Art Mora Gallery (New York), Columbia College (Chicago), and the Center for Book Arts (New York). Sačić has been recognized as Artist in Residence at the Penland School of Art and Craft, the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, and the Center for Book and Paper Arts in Chicago, among others. She is an associate professor of art at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.

His clay sculptures function as translations of the printed word and are often associated with historical printing tools. Working with historical objects used in the commercial printing and textile industries allows one to focus on the production process. These tools of production imply a larger social narrative that speaks of the history of work through the print media.

A reception and artists’ conference will take place on Monday, October 25, time to be determined. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and during most FPAC performances. The exhibitions are free and open to the public.

For more information about the artist, visit his website. For more information or to purchase tickets for other FPAC shows, visit FPAC online or call (708) 974-5500. Check out the latest COVID-19 protocols for visitors to campus.

Apsley House – the current home of the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery – will not reopen.

The collection held there will be removed to allow the building to be sold by Swindon Borough Council – and work will begin to prepare the upper floor of the Euclid Street municipal offices as a temporary gallery and museum.

And advisers have been told that a new exhibition space could be ready by the end of the year.

Swindon Borough Council review committee members accepted the Conservative cabinet’s decision to go ahead with the closure of the 1830s building in Bath Road and work on ways to show the collection of art and artifacts in municipal offices – possibly as well as Lydiard House – and continuing with the traveling Art on Tour exhibitions.

But before the decision was ratified, heritage, culture and recreation cabinet member Robert Jandy and director of strategic growth and development Richard Bell were faced with an in-depth cooking grid of the proportion of councilors and members of the public who had turned up in large numbers.

Mr Bell had told the committee that once officers were ordered to move the work forward, the upper floor of the city offices could be ready to open its first exhibit by the end of the year.

He added: “There’s more floor space in the civic than at Apsley House, it’s more accessible, we’ll be able to show more of the collection. The only major job that needs to be done is on the elevator.

“The work that should be done at Apsley House would take longer and it wouldn’t be as good or as accessible as it is here at Town Hall.”

A sum of £ 400,000 which had been allocated two years ago for repairs to Apsley House will now be used for works on Euclid Street to allow an exhibition there.

One of the members of the public, Rod Hebden, questioned the council’s amounts.

He said: “We looked at how much it would cost to open here.

“It’s between £ 4.5million to sing it all, dance everything to £ 1.8million for something more modest, or you might just have very few works on display, maybe just one. Which one will it be, or are we going to get the pound version? ”

Mr Bell said: “We have expert costs, and they are very different from yours.”

Councilor Roger Smith said: “The Cultural Quarter is years away and in light of this council’s questionable track record on regeneration projects, what is the impact if this building becomes the permanent home of the collection? ”

Mr Bell said it could cost around £ 1 to £ 1.8million and added: “It wouldn’t be worse, and in many ways better than what we have at Apsley House.”

Two new sculptures arrive on the lawn of the Memorial Art Gallery https://911gallery.org/two-new-sculptures-arrive-on-the-lawn-of-the-memorial-art-gallery/ Tue, 14 Sep 2021 19:02:50 +0000 https://911gallery.org/two-new-sculptures-arrive-on-the-lawn-of-the-memorial-art-gallery/ If there had ever been a perfect public sculpture for shareable selfies, “Lover’s Rainbow” could be this one.

If there had ever been a perfect public sculpture for shareable selfies, “Lover’s Rainbow” could be this one.

The piece, one of two monumental outdoor sculptures slated to be installed on the grounds of the Memorial Art Gallery next year, will be made of steel rebar painted in rainbow colors and bent to form a high arch that stretches several dozen feet across the open lawn.

“You’re supposed to stand below, you’re supposed to have the Instagram photo,” MAG director Jonathan Binstock said following a groundbreaking ceremony Monday at the museum that drew staff, elected officials and dignitaries from the University of Rochester, which owns the gallery.

“Lover’s Rainbow” by Mexican artist Pia Camil and another untitled sculpture by New York artist Rashid Johnson will anchor the gallery’s expansion at its Centennial Sculpture Park. The pieces will join 12 others that are already gracing the campus lawn when they are scheduled to be completed next fall.

The expansion is also to include new pedestrian paths, smaller sculptures and refreshed landscaping, museum officials said. The start of work is scheduled for October.

“Museums have always been that place where you go, you see art, you absorb it, and then leave,” Binstock said. “I think all of this is really about changing the relationship, so it’s not just about welcoming the camera, but it also makes the community the centerpiece.”

Once installed near Prince Street, Johnson’s sculpture, which has yet to be named, will form a curved wall covered in mosaic tiles that depict the images of “genderless and raceless” faces, Binstock said, adding that students from the nearby art school inspired the work.

The expansion marks the second phase of construction of Centennial Sculpture Park, which opened in 2013 to celebrate the museum’s 100th anniversary. The latest additions were funded by two private donors and a $ 600,000 grant from Empire State Development, the umbrella organization of the state’s two economic development utilities.

The overall goal of the project is to open up the campus to invite passers-by to walk around the grounds, browse the art for free or sit and chat with friends, museum officials said.

Works by Rochester artists Albert Paley, Jackie Ferrara and the late Wendell Castle, as well as New York sculptor Tom Otterness and others were installed during the initial phase, along with walkways and elements of landscaping that crisscrosses the southern and eastern grounds of the gallery. .

The Castle and Otterness works added more places to sit (and climb, in the case of some parts of the Otterness work). Ferrara’s “Marking Crossways”, a series of geometric paths, are used by pedestrians throughout the day.

State Senator Samra Brouk, who was on hand for the opening, called the museum “a cornerstone of the Rochester community.”

“MAG makes art accessible to our community, and this sculpture park is another way to give our community something to cherish,” said Brouk.

Sections of the wrought iron gate that served to sequester the neighborhood MAG campus have been removed, allowing 24-hour access to the grounds. More of this gate will collapse with the expansion, this time opening the land to pedestrian traffic from University Avenue, near the School of the Arts.

This expansion complements the original vision for the sculpture park, Binstock said, but added that more could be done on the 15-acre lot to make the museum a greater cultural presence in the neighborhood.

“We have thoughts, dreams, fantasies of how to keep improving the exterior of the property in order to make more room for art, to be more inviting to people, more welcoming”, a- he declared.

CAMPAIGNS wishing to reopen the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery held a council meeting to make their voices heard.

Swindon Borough Council’s curatorial cabinet voted to close the current gallery home at Apsley House and explore other options for displaying art and exhibits on Wednesday evening.

The move sparked a passionate impromptu speech from audience member Sandy Best.

As others walked out of the boardroom, Ms Best held up three T-shirts that her children had decorated during arts and crafts sessions at the museum before the lockdown.

She said, “What about the children? I’ve heard people tonight talking about the collection, exhibiting it and making sure people can see it – but what about the kids who need a place to go and something? thing to do now?

“My kids made these t-shirts at the museum, we have to think about what the kids need now and the damage they’ve suffered because they have nowhere to go.”

Former culture and heritage cabinet member Robert Jandy answered questions from the public and presented a report that recommended keeping the Bath Road building closed and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on repairs in order explore other ways to display the artefacts, including converting municipal office rooms. in Euclid Street.

Although many in the public gallery feared this would spell the end of Apsley House as a venue, Councilor Jandy said: “This is the start of the conversation.

“We have been criticized for not having more details, costs, etc., but we can only get them if this report is approved so that we can go out and get this information.

“If there are any problems, it will come back to Cabinet.”

He added: “This is about making the collection accessible to more people than those currently coming to the museum and gallery. It’s great to see the passion for the arts in this room.

“I want to involve the Friends of the Museum and the Art Gallery in all discussions. ”

Friends chairwoman Linda Kasmaty took issue with council’s opinion that Apsley House is not fit for purpose and will be too expensive to repair.

She asked if the council’s polls could be made available. Council lawyer Lisa Hall said she would look into the matter.

Old Town Labor adviser Jane Milner-Barry said city offices were not suited to accommodate a large art collection.

She said, “Look at these windows, single pane, steel framed, some don’t open, some don’t close. ”

As he and his colleagues voted to endorse the report, Councilor Brian Ford said: “I have some concerns about this building as a location. I would love to know more about how we can make it safer.

“We chose this image because it’s the most iconic of the Picasso style that people are used to seeing, which is in this sort of abstract variation,” Erbach said.

“Because our theme worked around passionate projects, we wanted to exhibit only Picasso’s work which focused on the main motifs of his work, namely bullfighting, and therefore we selected all the prints and sculptures that exhibited and illustrated bullfighting. . ”

Marc Chagall’s collection is called “The Call of Jerimiah”.

Erbach says this will include 20 prints of Chagall’s work based on the Old Testament.

“That’s when Jerimiah met an angel, there are a lot of Old Testament prophecies and visions.”

Erbach explains that both collections will play an important role in the identity of the art gallery, which he says exhibits local, national and international art.

“All of this is quite unique and important to our community, to residents, to local artists for their development, to curators, to writers and to the general public, who don’t necessarily always want to travel to Calgary to participate in something important.

Erbach explains that because the Grande Prairie Art Gallery is a national-class museum, they were able to obtain pieces of this caliber, although he suggests it was no easy task.

“We are in fact able to collect and exhibit works according to the highest national standards, so because of this we are able to contact some of the largest and most important art museums in the world. countries, like the National Museum of Canada, and request that we receive a loan from their collection, ”he said.

“It’s a long process, it’s a complicated process, but because of the quality of the staff in this museum and this facility, we are able to do that kind of work.”

Erbach says that for the first project with the Sargent Family Foundation, the exact dollar amount for the first showcase remains to be determined, although he estimates that they will use tens of thousands of dollars for a show of this caliber.

RELATED: Sargent Family Foundation endowment of $ 1 million creates sustainability for Grande Prairie Art Gallery

“For example, just shipping artwork of this level of importance from Ottawa can cost a lot of money,” Erbach said.

“There is a limit, so the endowment itself will live on for many generations, so we have not finalized how much we will take out of this major gift.”

Sean Sargent, a member of the Sargent Family Foundation, says the Grande Prairie Art Gallery has always been one of their favorite visits and is happy to see the first draft of several of the Foundation’s endowment. the Sargent family.

“Allocate (the funding) to give the art gallery the extra funding it needs each year to offer additional exhibitions like this that it would not normally afford, and to improve the cultural life of the people in Grande Prairie who can come and see this, we just feel honored to have been able to do that.

Operational museum funders include the City of Grande Prairie, the County of Grande Prairie and the MD of Greenview.

The exhibition will be presented from September 30 to January 9 at the Grande Prairie Art Gallery, located inside the Montrose Cultural Center.

Their earlier visit has turned some excited heads.

The Duchess of Cornwall fondled a model albatross as she and the Prince of Wales visited a museum celebrating its 120th anniversary.

They visited the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum which opened in 1901 for the Glasgow International Exhibition and in 1902 became the City’s Civic Art Gallery and Museum.

It reopened in 2006 after being closed for three years for renovation and has since welcomed more than 19 million visitors.

Charles and Camilla were greeted by Glasgow’s Lord Lieutenant Philip Braat when they arrived at the museum on Tuesday and were introduced to museum director Neil Ballantyne and museum and collections manager Duncan Dornan.

The couple, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, met museum staff, members of the Cop26 team and members of the Cabinet Office Cop26 team.

They then took a tour of the museum, where they saw exhibits including the Christ of Saint John of the Cross painting by Salvador Dali and an exhibition on the memory of Srebrenica.

Charles then went to see the Charles Rennie Mackintosh section and met students from the Glasgow School of Art, of which he is a patron, while Camilla went to see the natural history collection.

She met some children from Hillhead Primary who held a model albatross with its wings outstretched to show the wingspan and patted it on the head.

The Duchess, in a silk feather dress by Fiona Clare, chatted with the children and watched them play a game, before moving on to a model of what a haggis might look like if it were of a real creature.

During the visit they also met two schoolchildren from Holyrood Secondary School in Glasgow, who thought they were coming to an event on Cop26.

Muhammad Sarim, 13, an S3 student, said: “We came to talk about Cop26 and climate change with Nicola Sturgeon but Prince Charles came so it was a bit of a surprise and really boosted our day .

“He was really interested in home learning and how our education unfolded. He was very personable.”

He added: “My mom won’t believe it but she will be so proud of me.”

Aaron Walsh, 17, who is in S6, said: “Camilla asked me about Glasgow and we talked about climate change, and Charles asked about education and where we are in our studies and on home learning. ”

Megan Gardner, Deputy Director, congratulated the boys, saying: “The boys came to talk about Cop26, but when we got there it was a different event so they met Prince Charles. They spoke incredibly well. ”

The museum and art gallery house around 8,000 objects in 22 themed galleries with exhibits including paintings, armor and a Spitfire suspended from the ceiling, and also hosts a variety of temporary exhibits.

Mr Dornan said: “Their Royal Highnesses were very interested in the collections. It is always a privilege to have a royal visit and we were very happy to welcome them.

“I think after such a difficult year it has been really very positive and a real boost for morale. ”

He added: “The museum has played an extremely important role in the lives of Glasgowians since it opened 120 years ago and is one of the most visited museums in the country.

“It’s really loved by the locals and it’s also a major tourist destination.”

After an extended closure due to Covid and renovations, the Tenby Museum and Art Gallery is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, September 9.

Curator Mark Lewis said: “The past 18 months have been challenging, but now we look forward to welcoming visitors again. The museum has undergone a lot of renovation, redecoration and reorganization to make it as welcoming and safe as possible and we have sought to clean up the building but not the experience. All of our art exhibitions have had to move forward, but we are delighted to be able to present Tom Sloan’s Ground Control as our first exhibition.

Some changes have been put in place to ensure everyone’s safety:

The Tenby Museum asks you to pre-book a ticket using their artistic ticketing system – a link can be found on their website and also on their social media pages. The museum can only accommodate 20 visitors per hour for social distancing reasons. If you are just calling, there may be a delay in your visit, so it is advisable to call ahead before visiting if you have not pre-booked a ticket.

Staff request that everyone wear a mask for their visit and also log in to help keep track of visitors so they can let anyone know of any issues.

Opening hours for September have been reduced. The museum will currently be open Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Museum staff hope to be able to increase these opening hours soon and will keep everyone informed.

The interactive screens had to be removed temporarily, but there is still a lot of fun stuff in the galleries, and quiz sheets will be available. Some of the smaller exhibition areas have also had to be closed for the time being.

More details and frequently asked questions are available on the Tenby Museum website (Plan Your Visit page).

Please contact us (by email at info@tenbymuseum.org.uk or, after September 9 by phone at 01834 842809) if you have any questions.
