TWO GALLERY EXHIBITS
RECEPTION: Friday, September 6 • 5-7 PM
Tyler Art Gallery North: The Era of the Dust Bowl
The Grant Arnold Collection: During the 1930s, Grant Arnold (1904-1988) was essentially the staff lithographer for the Art Students League, NYC and the Woodstock, NY Artists Association. Working in this capacity, he helped many artists complete prints and collected hundreds of works from the artists themselves. These images are primarily in “social realist” style – documenting everyday American life in a straight forward artistic syle.
Farm Security Administration Photography: Between 1937 and 1941 at least three professional photographers were sent to Oswego County to document in photographs local migratory workers and their environmental conditions the Port of Oswego and other local citizens and landmarks under the auspices of the Farm Security Administration (FSA).
Tyler Art Gallery South: Ebb & Flow
Ebb & Flow is an art installation by Mary Giehl and Kim Waale with a focus on water as a primary image. By showing water from a microcosmic and macrocosmic point of view, viewers enter into an intellectually rigorous contemplation of the subject and the various subjective ways artists can interpret a single source of inspiration.
Giehl’s installation enlarges microscopic water-borne organisms.
Waale’s installation shrinks rivers and creeks – examined from a macro perspective – into three-dimensional marks.
Howard Spindler, pianist, of the Eastman School of Music and Jon Shallit, violinist, of the SUNY Oswego Music Department, present a violin and piano duo recital. The concert starts with an original arrangement, Suite of Songs and Dances from Ancient Times, which contains music rarely if ever heard. A Japanese traditional song, dompe, saltarello, hopper dance, spanyoler tancz, a mensuration canon and more are combined in the suite. Also to be performed are works by Bach, Higdon, Bloch and Bartok. The concert is played in an ever-increasing cascade of intensity, ending in the brilliance of the Bartok and Bloch works.
HEDY HABRA will present on her book MUNDOS ALTERNOS Y ARTISITICOS EN VARGAS LLOSA. Hedy Habra demuestra la aptitud de los personajes para crear mundos posibles en la obra del Nobel peruano.
Hedy Habra, author of Flying Carpets and Tea in Heliopolis takes us on a journey in space and time to Egypt and Lebanon through a storyteller’s and a poet’s eyes.
