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.
World music at its best, “Melody of China” blends traditional instruments and classical training with a contemporary outlook. East meets West with special guest Mitzie Collins and members of the Striking Strings Hammered Dulcimer Ensemble.
