Photographer Errol Daniels and writer Katherine Russell bestow a humanization counter to criminal justice statistics, ultimately depolarizing what the public sees in those who are returning from prison. There will be a reception on Saturday, July 28 from 1:30 – 4:30 pm with an artist talk by Errol Daniels at 2 pm followed by panel discussion on the topic “Community Approaches to Fostering Reentry Success.” This event is free and open to the public. By personalizing the stories of individuals as they re-enter society, Daniels and Russell encourage others to remove barriers that lead to recidivism and to shift the tone toward restorative, rehabilitative approaches. The images and stories highlight the vast number of barriers from housing and employment discrimination, to the little things such as learning how to use a computer or drive a car, which work in concert to prevent success after incarceration. It is critical to acknowledge the troubling state of our criminal justice system and its poor outcomes, as well as its disparate impact on people of color and the economically disadvantaged. In many respects, ordinary onlookers may see the

    Info: Over the past 10 years more than 424 people have been killed in the United States in mass shootings. In 2016 alone, 38,658 people were killed by guns. On average there are 13,000 homicides a year in the US. At least 108 million people were killed in wars in the twentieth century. The Burchfield Penney Art Center at SUNY Buffalo State today announced gun violence will be the subject of Enough Killing!, a new installation opening Friday, July 13 as part of M&T Second Friday. Co-curated by Don Metz and Scott Propeack, the exhibition will feature 12 representations that address the devastation of war and ever-increasing gun violence social crisis. Some of the artists include Robert Longo, Death Star (1993), a suspended sculpture comprised of 18,000 brass and copper bullets; Kathie Simonds, American Classic: Our Holy Wars, 1991; Joseph Orffeo (1926-2013), Iraq, 2003; and Paul Sharits (1943-1993), Infected Pistol, 1983. Enough Killing! will be on view thru Sunday, October 28, 2018. “The exhibition is an assemblage of powerful messages within our archives speaking to the indignity of gun violence. Since we as humans seem unable to do much to harness or control our rage, it is important that we at least stop look, and admit the fact that we are responsible,” said Don Metz, associate director and head of public programs. “Gun violence is not only in our schools, but in neighborhoods, on our police forces, and part of our international relationship plan. Through the work of various artists, playful, beautiful and poignant, we stop look and think. “ “Killing each other is something that humans have done throughout our history. War and violence are often the ways that we learn and mark time,” said Scott Propeack, chief curator and associate director and chief curator. “Since we are always killing, it comes as no surprise that we have become good at it. So much so, that one person it seems can kill dozens and dozens.

    Info: The artistry of Niagara Falls, NY-based artist Jonathan Rogers reveals a complex and sometimes thorny life. His art ranges from tormented dancing children with representations of storybook life in the background, to a seemingly biblical worship of a protective god. Exhibition of how he creatively finds balance navigating the world through art. His work is off-putting to those who shun religion, a beacon to those that feel he speaks to their spiritual sense of the world. Motivated by a personal experience of faith as touchstone, and a cultish practice of religion as a demon, he ascends to make sense of the world through his work which only adds to the question of where he is landing. Rogers is, in many ways, the most traditional of artists. “I am supposed to be an artist,” he once said. “I draw and paint and dress the part without trying very hard, comes naturally. My lifetime obsession is pursuing “nothing definite”. At last, finally, I have come up with a way of defining it.” Born in Toronto, Ontario, his lengthy artistic career began by working as an apprentice printer in 1954. In 1956-59 he attended the Ontario College of Art & Design. Rogers has taught courses on drawing at Newton Abbot College of Art, Devonshire England and School of Design, Sheridan University, Ontario, Canada. He has been celebrated and recognized as an internationally awarded animator. If you were a child in the late 1970s, the animated special “Witch’s Night Out’, that starred the voices of the late Gilda Radner and Catherine O’Hara might look familiar. Rogers created this nationally acclaimed film starring ‘Winifred the Witch.' Jonathan’s life has followed a rocky path, instructor to illustrator then animator to vagrant. A spiritual lecturer dismayed by the reality behind the curtain of the American mega-church, his artwork looks back at a life filled with success, failure, and reinvention. These are all grand statements, but at the core of his work is the way we all assess and re-assess our experiences.

    Info: On November 2, 1914, Charles E. Burchfield wrote about dreaming of a group of American elm trees that grew in Salem, Ohio, near his childhood home. “The Three Trees”, as they were locally known, would appear first in a sketch from July 2, 1915. These same trees resurface later in the masterwork of The Three Trees, 1932-1946. By the time the painting was finished, two of the trees were destroyed by a tornado and the third was cut down for the construction of new houses. Burchfield’s love of trees is the focus of the exhibition. Burchfield’s Arboretum. In July of 1947, Burchfield went on a trip with his wife, Bertha, that ended in Cook Forest, in Pennsylvania. After visiting an old growth section, he wrote: It is impossible for me to write here anything adequate about the beauty of Cook’s Forest. It was beyond anything I had ever imagined—I can think of nothing better than Longfellow’s impressive lines in the prologue to his Evangeline “This is the Forest Primeval”. The glory of these ancient gigantic hemlocks is beyond me to describe. Two years later in May of 1949 Burchfield wrote about another dream, this time lamenting the destruction of various kinds of trees. Dream Fragment—In Salem—High Street—great open fields with gigantic trees, elms, buttonwoods and maples, with blue-jays flying about—It seemed as if someone on the excuse that the trees were a menace to surrounding houses had cut off the upper branches much to my disgust. The “scars” where even the highest branch were cut off, were as big as ordinary stumps. A work from late in Burchfield’s life, Summer Solstice (In Memory of the American Chestnut Tree), 1961-1966, is a eulogy for a lost giant. The American chestnut was devastated by a fungus, which was accidently introduced into North America in the first decade of the twentieth century.

    Info: The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University acquired The Charles Rand Penney Collection of Historical Niagara Falls Prints in 2006. This collection, a generous donation from Dr. Charles Rand Penney, was partially funded by the Castellani Purchase Fund, with additional funding from Mr. and Mrs. Thomas A. Lytle. Penney felt, as did the staff of the Castellani Art Museum, that the collection, the largest and most significant of its kind, should be kept near the Falls so that visitors from around the world could see and appreciate it. Its more than nine hundred images reflect the historic and cultural changes that have taken place at Niagara Falls since the seventeenth century and illustrate the significance of Niagara Falls to American history. Penney’s nephew, Christopher W. Lane, co-founder of The Philadelphia Print Shop, organized the collection into seven thematic categories—Hennepin & Derivatives, A Variety of Depictions, Niagara As a Symbol, Popular Prints, Prints for the Wealthy, Extraordinary Events, and Maps. The immense size and fragility of the complete collection precludes a presentation in its entirety. The Lure of Niagara: Highlights from the Charles Rand Penney Historical Niagara Falls Print Collection features works, representative of the larger holdings of the collection that are symbolic, commercially popular, historically relevant, and particularly unique. It is believed that more prints were made of Niagara Falls before the twentieth century than of any other specific place, and The Charles Rand Penney Collection of Historical Niagara Falls Prints is the largest collection of this genre. Viewing so many images of one subject together, we can gain new insights not only about the location itself, but also about the manner in which the scene has been depicted, emerging with a deeper understanding of the history of Niagara Falls.

    Info: The Castellani Art Museum of Niagara University presents Think BIG: The Artists of Autism Services. Featured artists will include Dan Carey, Langston Gardner, Erich Haneberg, Kevin Krauss, James Marino, Daniel Maysonet, Courtney McGovern, and Brandon Scott. Most works in Think BIG were created on-site at the Castellani Art Museum. Throughout 2017 and early 2018, the artists participated in workshops focusing on large-scale works from the museum’s collection. For many of the artists, the pieces featured in the exhibit are the largest they’ve created to date, including a 14 foot painting on unstretched canvas by Kevin Krauss. The museum’s central gallery was a source of inspiration because of its scale, which when constructed in 1990, was the largest exhibition space in Western New York. “We are honored the artists were invited to exhibit their work in the Main Gallery of the Castellani Museum,” said Autism Services CEO Veronica Federiconi. “Our intention to introduce the arts was very different from the beginning, and the artists have now been working steadily for well over a decade. This exhibit is a testimonial to their acceptance as true artists.” According to Autism Services, for some people on the autism spectrum, the arts can provide a voice to express what is meaningful and important to them. Think BIG: The Artists of Autism Services is curated by Tara L. Lyons, Curator of Education & Collections at the Castellani Art Museum. It will be on display from May 6, 2018 through January 27, 2019. The Castellani Art Museum has a free admission policy. For more information, please call 716-286-8295.
