Art Omi Fall Opening in the Park

Alicia Kwade, TunnelTeller (2018). Stainless steel, concrete, natural stone (Macaubas azul)

Celebrate Art Omi’s  Fall Opening in the Park on September 11. With opening receptions for To Feel Myself Beloved on the Earth, by Jeffrey Gibson, and TunnelTeller, by Alicja Kwade, now on view in the Sculpture & Architecture Park. The opening features a performance by Black Belt Eagle Scout at 5 pm. 

To Feel Myself Beloved on the Earth is an exhibition of quilts, garments, drums, prints, and video by Jeffrey Gibson. A Choctaw-Cherokee artist, Gibson best known for his abstract painting, sculpture and prints which carry an autobiographical cultural inflection. 

Based in Berlin, Alicja Kwade (b.1979, Poland) has long been engaged with value systems, philosophical questions about the essence of reality, and with attempting to examine, if not resolve, issues of inherently subjective concepts such as space and time. In her sculptures, installations, photographs, and films, Kwade probes the structural properties of everyday objects and the veracity of matter.

Christopher Wool, Untitled, Now on View at Art Omi

Screen Shot 2019-02-07 at 11.15.50 AM
Untitled is a large-scale bronze and copper plated steel sculpture, exhibited outdoors for the first time at Art Omi. In the past few years, Wool has cultivated a sculptural practice that intersects with his more widely known two-dimensional body of work. The sculptures demonstrate his penchant for appropriating existing forms, deriving their structure from ranching wire found around his property in Texas. The structures are uniquely defined by their coiled and twisted lines, evoking the silk-screened and spray painted contours found in the artist’s earlier two-dimensional work. The work will be on view at Art Omi through at least the end of 2019.

Christopher Wool is primarily known as a painter, his photographs, sculptures, artist books, and prints are also integral to his practice. Wool’s work has been presented at institutions around the world, including solo exhibitions at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (1989); Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, and Kunsthalle Bern (1991); Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (1998), Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (1998–99), and Kunsthalle Basel (1999); Institut Valencià d’Art Modern and Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Strasbourg (2006); Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto (2008–09), and Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2009); Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2012); and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Art Institute of Chicago (2013–2014). Wool currently lives and works in New York City and Marfa, Texas.

Artists in The Fields 2019 exhibition program include: Katherine Bernhardt, Sarah Braman, Francesca DiMattio, Matthew Geller, Virginia Overton, Tschabalala Self, David Shrigley, Brian Tolle, Christopher Wool, and others to be announced.

Hudson Area Library Announces Galvan Armory Sculpture Dedication

stillirise

The Hudson Area Library announces the dedication of the public sculpture, “Still I
Rise” by Kris Perry, on Friday, October 19. This public art sculpture has been
recently installed on the grounds of the Galvan Armory; home to the library, the City of Hudson Senior Center and Perfect Ten After School.

The sculptor Kris Perry, known for his large-scale metal sculptures, was inspired by the well-known poem “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou to create this bronze piece, which was purchased by the Galvan Foundation and stands out prominently in front of the former armory building.

The dedication will feature a reading of “Still I Rise” by a student from Perfect Ten, a Question & Answer with Kris Perry by Hudson City School District students facilitated by Bridget Smith, Literacy Specialist of MC Smith Elementary School, and Dan Kent, Vice President of Initiatives for the Galvan Foundation, as well as representatives from the library, the senior center and Perfect Ten will be on hand to speak. The Hudson Area Library Tween Council will be hosting the event, which will end with refreshments in the community room.

Kris Perry, born in Berkeley, Ca., studied under illustrator Charles Pyle, and attended California College of Art. A skilled craftsperson and metal fabricator, he has worked with David Best on large scale projects. His own creation, the much-heralded “Machines,” combines industrial sound sculptures with live performance, and has been exhibited in a number of galleries and venues. These collaborations have included Tommy Stinson, Elvis Perkins, Brian Dewan, and others. Large-scale kinetic sculptures have been commissioned and exhibited across the country. His workshop is in Hudson, NY.
