Exhibition

One component of our current exhibition, Game On! Art and Hockey, has a strong focus on our local hockey-loving community.  The exhibition in the hallway includes photographs and memorabilia from the SLU athletics department, Special Collections in ODY, and from the Canton Town and Village archives, as well as from local hockey  parents and fans.  Students from Parishville-Hopkinton Central School made some hockey-inspired word portraits, three of which are in the exhibition.

 

Alex Schreiber, one of the artists in the gallery’s current Morphographica exhibition, is the subject of a recent interview on NCPR, the local NPR affiliate.  In the interview, he describes how his childhood interests have transformed into his current scientific research in his lab at St. Lawrence.

Special thanks to Tzintzun Aguilar Izzo for videotaping and editing the interviews. Additional information about the re:WORKS exhibition can be found on the Gallery’s Web site.

re:WORKS, our most recent exhibition, opened  on Friday, March 22, with a very well attended reception, complete with live music.  The exhibition includes works from St. Lawrence University’s permanent collection and “reworks” by students in Melissa Schulenberg’s art and art history spring 2012 senior-year experience (SYE) class.  Each student selected from two to six art objects from the collection and then created new works based on those selections.

Each of the students gave a short talk about his or her work and described how art work from the University’s collection provided inspiration for the final project.  The students in the exhibition are Mike Cianca, Alex Duane, Evan Haynes, Alli Howe, Courtney Kuno, Olivia McManus, and Lindsay Tarolli.  I hope to put up some installation shots soon.

Students from The Annex Performing Arts Theme House (just across the street) provided music, and added so much to the reception’s lively atmosphere.

 

Artist Daniel Heyman made the trip to Canton from Philadelphia, PA, earlier this week, visiting campus in conjunction with the Bearing Witness exhibition, which features his gouache paintings and prints (including a huge etching on multiple pieces of plywood).

While here, he gave a very moving artist’s lecture, met with students and members from the local community, and also taught Japanese wood block printing to Melissa Schulenberg’s beginning printmaking class. And he made a lithograph with Melissa, too! All this in just 2 1/2 action-packed days.

I really enjoyed getting to know Daniel — and his snappy sense of humor!

 

Hatch Kingdom | Stickerkitty

International Sticker Exhibition

DE VIGUEUR et DE VERVE!

Fresh Paint – Peint Frais

Edition III

Hatch Kingdom, the only sticker museum in the world, has collaborated with Catherine Tedford, a.k.a. Stickerkitty, to present an exhibition of street art stickers and photographs from Berlin and New York City, with additional pieces from cities across Europe and North America.  As part of a larger exhibition entitled Edition III, which includes work by contemporary muralists, graffiti artists, photographers, and others, the international sticker exhibition will be on display at Fresh Paint Gallery, Montréal, Québec, from December 2, 2011, through January 29, 2011.

Founded by Oliver Baudach in 2008, Hatch Kingdom began as a small gallery space in Berlin’s alternative Friedrichsain district to serve as a platform for stickers, sticker artists, skateboard fans, and collectors.  An expanded Hatch HQ is now located in central Mitte, with two gallery spaces devoted to Oli’s ever-growing sticker collection, now numbering well over 25,000 stickers, and one gallery for rotating exhibitions by young urban street artists.

Catherine directs St. Lawrence University’s art gallery in Canton, NY, and has been actively collecting stickers since 2003, having now collected over 6,000 original stickers by hand, primarily from Berlin and NYC, with stickers also from Hamburg, Munich, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cambridge (MA), Ottawa, Toronto, Amsterdam, Budapest, and other cities in western and central Europe.  Part of the collection is being digitized and can be found at SLU’s gallery Web site.  Catherine has presented papers at academic conferences for the College Art Association, the Visual Resources Association, and the International Arts in Society; in 2012, she will present a paper entitled “WTF.  It’s Only a Sticker” at the annual CAA conference in Los Angeles.  Check her Stickerkitty blog for more information.

The exhibition at Fresh Paint also includes six original drawings and collages from “Oversized and Underpriced,” a project initiated by Oliver Baudach in which artworks on oversized sticker printouts are sold at low prices with proceeds to benefit Skateistan, a skateboarding school in Kabul, Afghanistan, for young boys and girls.

In addition to art, music, and tagging stickers, political stickers in the exhibition from Germany and the U.S. focus on anti-authority, anti-capitalism, post-9/11 surveillance measures, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 2008 US Presidential election, the environment, oil consumption, and the economy.  Examples of these were included in a recent gallery exhibition at St. Lawrence in 2010, which was based in part on a summer research grant from the Center for International and Intercultural Studies in which three students and an alumnus traveled to Berlin and Munich to study street art.

 

Cathy is showing part of her sticker collection, including additional stickers from the Hatch Kingdom, in Montréal at an amazing gallery (Fresh Paint/Peint Frais) that focuses on street art, graffiti, and other urban endeavors.  More details to come, but I thought I should post some photographs of the installation.

 

 

Amy Hauber’s sculpture class has been creating oversized bird forms from the templates that Inga and Andy provided as part of the ELEMENTALS Birds project. Yesterday, the students presented their work on the SLU quad and around campus.  The snow only showed up later in the afternoon, thankfully!

More photos and information can be found on the SLU ELEMENTALS Birds page on Facebook.  Thanks to Peter Quigley for taking such great photographs.
