List of 4 events.

  • Photographer Daniel Hoffman

    Opening night reception Wednesday, December 2 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. with artist talk at 7:00 p.m.

    Daniel Hoffman seeks to make images that require him to move outside of his comfort zone and engage people and situations different from the familiar. Early projects documenting people and life in Times Square after dark, as well as work on the plight of gypsies living as refugees, allowed him to gain valuable experience and develop the skills to approach complete strangers, engage with them, and enter their world through photography. For this exhibit, Hoffman will present his latest project centered around The Worm, a 2-mile elevated highway in one of the largest cities in the world, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Worm was given its name to reflect the twists and turns it follows through the city. Yet, by suggesting it has a life, Hoffman seeks to understand how the people who use, live by and work under The Worm, ultimately breathe life into its space.
  • The Veil Decoded: A Cross-Cultural Survey of Veils and Traditional Dress, Curated by Isabella de la Houssaye

    Opening reception Monday, December 14 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

    In conjunction with Peddie's History Department and the Asian Studies Program, the Mariboe Gallery will host the installation of veils and traditional dress from across Africa, central Asia, and the Middle East. Exhibit curator Isabella de la Houssaye has amassed a collection of textiles that speak to a diversity of cultural and religious traditions, and the layers of personal identity embedded in each object. Thourgh interactions with students, connections to visual arts and history curriculum, and a talk by Ms. de la Houssaye, the exhibit seeks to investigate the complexity and meanings surrounding these garments.
  • 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. For her exhibit at the Mariboe Gallery, Langsam will render a site-specific wall-painting inspired by architectural blueprints. 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.
