National Museum of the Native American membership drive





We’re entering the final week of Membership Month and we’re still 58 Members away from reaching our 100 new member Membership Month goal.

That leaves us just one week to make up the difference.

Join now to help us reach the finish line.

We’re living in a time when what most people know about Indians is incomplete or entirely false.  Even “well known” events in Native American history like the first Thanksgiving and the story of Pocahontas are largely misunderstood.

The Museum exists to fill in the gaps, stand up to longstanding stereotypes, and showcase the contributions Native cultures have made to American history and contemporary life.

But we depend on Member support to make it possible, which is why meeting our Membership Month goal is so important.


P.S.  Hurry!  March 31 will be here before you know it. Join now!

Peter Voulkos (1924-2002) Smithsonian American Art Museum April 6th Washington DC


You are invited to a press preview for the exhibition: 
 
 
 
Peter Voulkos (1924-2002) was one of the most influential ceramicists of the 20th century, celebrated for a radical approach that fundamentally transformed the field in a single decade. He defied mid-century craft dictums to reinvent his medium, combining wheel throwing with slab-building, traditional glazes with epoxy paint, figuration with abstraction and building large-scale ceramic structures with complex internal engineering.
 
"Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years" is the first exhibition to examine his early career from 1953 to 1968, when he developed his avant-garde forms and techniques. The exhibition will feature 31 examples from this crucial body of early work, most of which have not been exhibited on the east coast for four decades. Also included will be three of the artist's rarely seen works in oil on canvas, which help to demonstrate how Voulkos developed his ideas concurrently in pottery, painting and sculpture.
 
Thursday, April 6, 2017
10 a.m. to 12 p.m.   
Sign-in: 10 a.m.
Curator-led tour, 10:30 a.m.

“Long Island Abstraction: 2 Generations” to Exhibit at the Art League of Long Island March 25 through April 15

 “Long Island Abstraction: 2 Generations” to Exhibit at the Art League of Long Island March 25 through April 15
The Art League of Long Island presents the abstract artwork of four notable local artists in the Art League of Long Island’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.  Participating artists are Peter Galasso and Laura Powers-Swiggett and nonagenarians Stan Brodsky and Frank Wimberley.  “Long Island Abstraction:  2 Generations” will be on view March 25 through April 15.  The artists’ reception takes place Sunday, April 2 from 2pm to 4pm.
Stan Brodsky, a life-long resident of the New York metro area was born in Brooklyn in 1926, lived in Greenwich Village and NYC until moving to Huntington in 1965. After serving in WWII, he was fortunate to be able to study art in Missouri and Iowa before returning to NYC to earn his doctorate in art education at Teacher’s College, Columbia University.  He was a professor of art at C.W. Post for 31 years, influencing a generation (or two!) of artists.  His influence on succeeding generations of artists also extends to the artists he mentors at the Art League of Long Island, Peter Galasso and Laura Powers-Swiggett among them.  About his work, Stan says “I have been an exhibiting artist in New York City for more than 50 years - and my passion for painting is as strong now as ever. I have traveled extensively absorbing the colors and textures of new landscapes”.  Brodsky’s works can be found in the permanent collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Guild Hall, Parrish Museum of Art, the Long Island Museum, the Heckscher Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts (St.Petersburg, FL), Dayton Art Institute (Ohio), among many others.  The “Stan Brodsky papers” a collection of his notes and sketches from 1951-2004 can be found at the Smithsonian Institute.
Peter Galasso is a painter of large gestural abstracts. His current work is an exploration of feeling, memory and a unique vision laid out on canvas in a style which is both original and inviting and offers a fresh, new look at color and form. He is especially drawn to American Abstract Expressionism made popular in the 1950’s here on Long Island by such luminaries as de Kooning, Pollock, Frankenthaler and Joan Mitchell. Peter has won awards at numerous juried exhibitions throughout Long Island. New York Times art critic, Phyllis Braff, awarded Peter “Best in Show” at an international juried exhibition, Abstraction 2003. He has shown his work twice at the Nassau County Museum of Art. Other recent exhibits include the Heckscher Museum’s 48th Long Island Artist’s Exhibition and several solo exhibitions at the Alfred Van Loen Gallery in South Huntington, New York and Ripe Art Gallery in Huntington. Peter was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides on Strong’s Neck, Long Island. He formerly studied the figure for five years with renowned Long Island artist, Betty Holliday. He went on to study abstract art with Stan Brodsky at the Art League of Long Island.
Laura Powers-Swiggett has lived and painted on Long Island for most of her life. She works in a variety of media, including acrylic, oil and gouache, and draws on direct observation, memory and intuition as part of her painting process. Laura’s landscape-based abstractions explore spatial and color relationships between land, sea and sky, and the possibilities they suggest for dividing the picture plane. Intuitive explorations of light, color and paint, they are rooted in the natural world, yet hint at mysteries beyond the scope of vision. Laura is long time member of the Art League of Long Island, where she has studied with Stan Brodsky, Paul Wood and Christian White. She served on the Art League’s Board of Directors for 12 years, from 1997-2009, and was actively involved in planning and fund raising for the Art League’s current home, the Elizabeth Livingston Center. Laura has also served for the past 25 years on the Board of Directors of the Mental Health Association of Nassau County and is dedicated to advocacy for children and families challenged by emotional and developmental disabilities, receiving the MHA’s Distinguished Service Award in 2006.  Since 2011, Laura has led a partnership between St. John’s Church (Cold Spring Harbor, NY) and a primary school in Haiti, developing a deep appreciation for Haitian art and culture.  Powers Swiggett received her BA in Visual Studies from Dartmouth College in 1979 and began her career as a marketing executive in the cable television industry. She now devotes herself fully to painting and community service. She has three children and lives in Lloyd Harbor with her husband, Brian.
orn in Pleasantville, New Jersey in 1926, Frank Wimberely now lives and works in New York City and Sag Harbor.  He studied with James Porter, Lois Mailou Jones and James Wells at Howard University and was awarded the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Grant for 1998.  Wimberley’s works are in the collections of The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, NYC; The Islip Art Museum, East Islip, NY; The John Hoskins Estate, Atlanta University, GA; Time Warner, NYC; Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, CT among others. Wimberely describes his approach to his art:  “The abstract painter can commence his drawing or canvas generally with only a preconceived notion, reflection or emotion. The end result, whether finished or still seeking a conclusion is then determined by tools, paint, the colors or tones employed, and the size of the work as well as the mood of the moment. He has far less guarantees than perhaps the realist painter or photographer that the finished expression will extend from calculated reason or logic. This for me provides the excitement of taking the theme or feeling from the very first stroke, and following it to its own particular conclusion. It is very much like creating the controlled accident.”
The Art League of Long Island is a not-for-profit visual arts organization that offers classes and workshops for children and adults, from beginner to advanced levels.  Their art gallery hosts a dozen exhibits per year, featuring contemporary works by many local artists.  Admission to the gallery is free and open to the public Monday-Thursday 9am to 9pm, Fridays 9am to 4pm and on weekends 11am to 4pm.  The Art League is located at 107 East Deer Park Road in Dix Hills.  For information about classes, exhibits, and events call (631) 462-5400 or visit www.artleagueli.org.

Muted Swans on Long Island: Environmental issues or not ????

The swan below I photographed on the shoreline of the  Terrell River Park,  Center Moriches yesterday afternoon.

When I got home to edit my photos, I saw plastic was hanging from his beak. It is very difficult for me to understand why people do not take better care of the trash and environment to protect aquatic bird life.

As it turns out there is an issue with the Mute Swan. Some say there has been the extermination of the species as they are non-indigenous and considered to be a threat. A threat to what I am not exactly sure. The phragmites as a grass species that are extremely invasive. They have choked much of the coastal waterways killing indigenous grass species are not native to NY state.

I reviewed the  Mute Swan - NYS Dept. of Environmental 
Conservation page  2014.

Excerpt: Mute swans are most numerous on Long Island and in the lower Hudson Valley, but they have expanded their range in recent years especially around Lake Ontario. Mute swans can cause a variety of problems, including aggressive behavior towards people, destruction of submerged aquatic vegetation, displacement of native wildlife species, degradation of water quality, and potential hazards to aviation. This plan supports actions by DEC to minimize the impacts of swans, while allowing them to remain in urban parks and other controlled settings. DEC recently adopted regulations listing mute swan as a "prohibited" Invasive Species, which prohibits the sale, importation, transport, or introduction of this species in New York.

In response to public backlash to its proposal last year to eradicate mute swans, the State Department of Environmental Conservation this week rolled out a new policy to deal with the birds on Long Island and elsewhere in the state—one that is less focused on slaughtering them.

While the original plan allowed for the capture or killing of all free-range mute swans, with the goal of eliminating every mute swan in the state by 2025, the new proposal, which was announced Monday, has a more nuanced approach that emphasizes education and regional handling of the issue, and targets the impact of the swans rather than the animals themselves.

The creek I live on and walk daily has lost three swans this last month. Hard to say what happened. But of the two mated breeding adult pairs nesting on the creek for several years, only one bird can be is seen today.

Irfan Önürmen, Diffusion, 2016, Mixed media
 
C24 Gallery is pleased to present İrfan Önürmen at Volta NY, 2017. In a site specific installation, Önürmen reveals the permeable elements of his work created in different media emphasizing the layering process he uses in his practice. The differing components in this installation are accentuated by the varying subject matter drawing attention to the formal and conceptual associations within the artist’s various periods. Sometimes these relations are beside one another as well as being back-to-back, but always recycling. The sense of disruption reflected from "Diffusion’’ is a reference to the dividing and dissolving psychology of both the artist and the society he’s living in.  The installation opens a discussion of the dialectical relationship concerning the process of artistic productios in all its bifurcations, integrations and diffusions. 
İrfan Önürmen’s work reveals the relationships and discrepancies between a personal and a public experience through the lens of contemporary media. Önürmen addresses the impact of mass media on the human experience and its visual representation.
