 ROBIN HOLDER – “United States of Anxiety”

 

February 28 – April 1, 2017
Reception: Tuesday, February 28, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Artist’s Gallery Talk: 6:30 pm

Works exhibited combine colored pencil portraits, apprehension-by-robinholderdigital imaging, and large format archival inkjet printing. House iconography symbolizes our sense of home, shelter, family, and sanctuary. They are portrayed as crooked. Disquiet, disappointment, and sadness reflect in the faces. Many of us self-identify as culturally, intellectually, and socially middle class. Holder’s work explores a sense of disappointment, unease. current circumstances are frustrating, often generated by increased dishonesty, unchecked global warming, a toxic food supply, education inflation, increased racism and prejudice, inadequate health care, minimal retirement resources, rising housing costs. The American dream is now barely attainable.

This exhibition features a cross section of Antonellis’s work, from net art to technological endurance art. These works reflect on one’s digital footprint and the visibility of the artist’s hand in new media. Several definitive pieces from his practice are showcased in addition to new work to be unveiled at the opening.

If I Had A Hammer

October 18 – November 21, 2016

Opening Reception: Tuesday, October 18, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Gallery Talk: 6:30 pm

 

Works in this exhibition take a cue from the Pete Seeger performance of If I Had a Hammer for Paul Robeson’s September, 1949, concert near Peekskill, New York, which subsequently erupted into a riot. The utopian desire of the song coincides with artist’s engagement of the subject; where desire is a human impulse that keeps the wheels turning.

Susan Walsh

From This Vantage Point: 41ºN 30’22” -73ºW 57’54”

Walsh_markingtime

Susan Walsh has been recording the sun’s shadow (to mark time) in relation to pieces of thread, as digital photographs and video experiments during the months of January, February and March (from Winter Solstice to Spring Equinox). From the latitude/vantage point of her studio in Beacon, NY, she waits for the sun to draw delicate shadow lines in collaboration with a random placement of thread. She also creates sculptures (wood panel, paint, graphite, nails) that loosely reference early sundials. With ordinary nails as pointers, set at the angle determined by the latitude of her studio, and in multiple directions instead of true north, she creates a lyrical moment in time with the sun as collaborator. She photographs the shadows and the completed drawing is printed on fine art paper (video is also a component of this body of work).

Erin McNally McNallyGlitters2

All That Glitters

December 8, 2015 – January 8, 2016

Opening Reception:  Tuesday, December 8, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Artist’s Gallery Talk: 6:30 pm

(closed Dec. 23 – Jan 3)

 

All that Glitters is an exhibition of seasonal décor designed to act as a perfunctory antidote to the distractions that inhibit our holiday celebrations. Inspired in part by the 1908 essay “Ornament and Crime,” by Adolf Loos, ornaments and wreaths, assembled from unconventional materials, make a satirical attempt to adorn, and thus redeem, those who have lost their way during the season of giving.

Erin McNally is a performance and installation artist based in the Hudson Valley. She holds degrees from The School of Art & Design at Alfred University, Hunter College and SUNY New Paltz. She is also a founding member of the artist collective, The Ladies’ Auxiliary. Erin’s work has been included in exhibitions organized by the Dorsky Museum of Art, the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, The Pelham Art Center, The Invisible Dog Art Center, Collaborative Concepts and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.

Real Good

September 8 – October 10, 2015

Opening Reception: Tuesday, September 29, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Gallery Talk: 6:30

My newest series of digital collages deals with imagery from grocery stores and food delivery trucks. Posters of weekly deals and newsprint advertisements evoke memories of rich flavor and saturated color. Imagery from lettuce and meat distributers promise a “utopian experience” within their product. The glossy exterior presents itself as a trusting, consistent product, though the line between what we’re buying and what we’re promised is often blurred. The source of our food is concealed behind a finished product. Like the brands I reference, I prefer my collages to be pleasing and attractive but to belie a more questionable content.

Retrospective  Part I 1994-2004

September 8 – October 11, 2014

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 25, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Gallery Talk: 6:30
 pm

This exhibition celebrates the broad spectrum of digital art making that has been exhibited at The Westchester Gallery at the Center for The Digital Arts at Westchester Community College This show will feature artists from our first 10 years of exhibitions 1994 – 2004. In 1994 Westchester Community College opened the Center for the Digital Arts, as part of the Peekskill Extension Center. This facility and its gallery space have focused on exhibiting digital art in its myriad forms. Artists who use computers in the process of creating their artworks have been highlighted in one-person shows in the ground floor gallery space.

Computer Art was once specialized category of art making where artists and programmers labored to create artworks from computer based instructions. Now digital tools are ubiquitous in contemporary art. From digital photography, web based projects, interactive installations, to wearable art; artists of all stripes have embraced computer art as a significant tool in their studio practices. Social media tools, interactive sensors and digital projectors have become a key part of many art projects.
