Window On Hudson Presents Chimba “Reproducing Life: Conception”, June 2021

Window On Hudson presents Chimba “Reproducing Life: Conception” on display now through June 28, 2021. “Reproducing Life: Conception” is the beginning stage for a series of paintings by Chimba (Chiarra Jonelle Hughes Mba).  These works, created on several large canvases as well as a variety of long wooden boards, mark Chimba’s first solo exhibition.

In the windows, the canvases present Women of the Earth, pregnant with child, hope, and history.  A transformative journey distilled into one radiant image.  Indoors, the boards are used to tell an entire story.  These wordless images can be read like a graphic novel or cave painting, with the subject’s story unfolding as you follow their journey through beginning, middle and end.  Chimba’s painting style is a blend of natural African tribalism and the fluid movements learned from modern fashion design. 

Chimba describes  “Reproducing Life” in the following way, “This body of work – I don’t think it is an accident that it is called a ‘body’ of work – is about reproduction and what it means for the Woman.   We can birth so many things other than a child.  Birth can have a healing effect on the mother and extended family.  Throughout time a birth has been a cause for celebration – more so in the past.  The language I use on my canvases reflects that time.

“I am curious about the journey of all Women.  Pregnant Women.  Mothers.  Mother Earth.  Queens.  Our roots.  I paint myself.  I am curious about my own journey.  My journey, my artistic journey and my life’s journey, changed as I worked on these paintings.  If you try to make everything as it should be, it won’t become what it can be.” 

Chimba was born and raised in Hudson, NY.  She studied fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology.   

An Artist’s Reception will be held Saturday, June 12 from 6-8pm as part of the 2econd Saturday Hudson Gallery Crawl.  Window On Hudson will be open to the public from 5-9pm.  Window On Hudson takes Covid-19 seriously and will take all current safety precautions.

Hudson Hall Reopening w/ Camille Thurman & The Darrell Green Trio, May 29

Hudson Hall is opening wide the doors and windows and inviting our community back for what promises to be an exhilarating celebration of the power of the arts to heal, inspire, delight, and reconnect. The season kicks off this weekend with Camille Thurman & The Darrell Green Trio.

When Camille Thurman is not touring with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, she’s on the road leading her band, The Camille Thurman Quartet and collaborating as a co-bandleader with the Darrell Green Trio. As a composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and unique interpreter of the jazz tradition, she is quickly becoming one of the standard-bearers for the form, making a dynamic contribution to the legacy of jazz while paying tribute to its heroes. In her Hudson Hall debut, Camille is joined by the Darrell Green Trio, featuring Anthony Wonsey on piano, Tom DiCarlo on bass, and Darrell Green on drums.
