List of 16 events.

  • Painter Julie Langsam

    Opening reception on Wednesday, January 20 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. with artist talk at 7:00 p.m.

    Julie Langsam’s paintings of iconic Modernist buildings designed by such celebrated architects as Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier, negotiate and question the legacy of modernism and its effect on contemporary culture.Within these paintings, the isolated buildings are positioned on the horizon line between an expansive and lustrous sky at sunset and abstract color fields. Representations of toxic landscapes reference the painterly sublime, serving as the ground for modernist architectural marvels, structures that evoke notions of failed utopias. Langsam is currently an Assistant Professor of Drawing at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts. Langsam received her BFA from Purchase College, SUNY in 1983 and a MFA from Queens College, CUNY in 1985.

  • Printmaker Sarah Amos

    Opening night reception on Wednesday, March 23 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. with artist talk at 7:00 p.m.

    Sarah Amos is an Australian printmaker currently practicing in the United States. Amos employs a process of richly layered printmaking punctuated by over-painting with vibrant and dynamic pattern to form, what she describes as, hybrid prints — sitting somewhere between printmaking and painting.  Amos combines carborundum etchings, monoprints, and collograph plates to create a complex visual space.  She further embellishes the prints with organic, scientific, and architectural references that demand sustained looking from her viewers.  Amos received her BFA from Phillip Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Australia and further training at the Tamarind Institute Master Printer Program in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
