Show of works by 30 artists opens April 11
Theo Ganz Studio will present Dispatches from Eternity, a multimedia exhibition of 51 works by 30 artists including Josh Brooks, Geoff Feder, Elana Goren, Barbara Smith Gioia, Laura Gurton, Beth Haber, Erica Hauser, Carla Rae Johnson, Eileen MacAvery Kane, Insun Kim, Carole P. Kunstadt, Bruno Krauchthaler, Michael Bogdanffy-Kriegh, Soo Im Lee, Gerda van Leeuwen, Martee Levi, Christopher E. Manning, Bibiana Huang Matheis, Sally Novak, Sheilah Rechtschaffer, Herman Roggeman, Linda Shere, Jackie Skrzynski, Eleni Smolen, Susan Cutter Snyder, Jane Soodalter, S. Gayle Stevens, Kat Stoutenborough, Kate Vikstrom and Jayoung Yoon.
The exhibition will run from April 11 through May 3. Linda Shere, just back from a residency fellowship in poetry at the Vermont Studio Center, will read a selection from her work at 4 p.m. on April 11, and the opening reception will follow the reading.
A call for art last January invited artists to interpret the title of the exhibition. Many of the dispatches that came in related to the past and memory, meditations on the afterlife, eulogies for the natural world and the environment, homages to and inspiration from people long gone, including not only other artists but scientists, writers, musicians and spiritual guides. The exhibition includes sculptures, paintings, video, drawings, prints, collage and photography. An online catalog that highlights work from each of the 30 artists accompanied by their brief statements is available at theoganzstudio.com.
The exhibition is free and open to the public; hours are Friday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For further information, contact Eleni Smolen, 917-318-2239 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
