  • opems: verbal visual combines

    burchfield penney art center

    buffalo | 10:00 AM

    a colorful medley of text and shapes that map out the performer’s directions in terms of routes and guidelines from whichever point of entry they so desire. powerful images of mythical landscapes that can stand alone as an object that draws the viewer into his mysteries. much in the manner of the free jazz movement of the 50’s and 60’s where musicians intended to extend or alter normal jazz principles, opems are unrestricted in their performance rules and structures. according to basinski, “opems are appropriated, original or magical writing, writing in process, and they are therefore written with markers and pens.” “manifested specifically for this exhibition,” basinski explains, “these opems are improvisational verbal scores, sound poems, song, poetry, and visual poetry for solo or choral recitation and orchestration. with multiple access points, the opems are combinations of letters, colors, prepared found materials, images, and languages that may be manifested for variable durations.” michael basinski is a western new york-based text, visual, and sound poet whose work is heavily influenced by fluxus, the interdisciplinary avant-garde art movement that gained international attention in the 1950s and 1960s for its emphasis on chance operations, collective or anonymous authorship of artworks, and ephemeral gestures. having worked with such legends as jackson maclow, dick higgins, allison knowles and john cage, basinski’s work evolved from a strict rhythmic performance structure, both as solo performances as well as ensemble, to a visual poem or manuscripts forming improvisational poeming without any specific starting location or ending point. basinski calls these visual poems or performances opems.

  • cargo, way-points, and tales of the erie canal

    burchfield penney art center

    buffalo | 10:00 AM

    curated by the trans-empire canal corp (teccorp) and burchfield penney. teccorp consists of six artist/curators that began meeting in 2012, with the idea to use the erie canal as a lens to consider the connections between communities, contemporary art, history and communication. just as the erie canal took over seven years to construct, the teccorp team and the burchfield penney continue our conversations. in 2014, the partnership presented the exhibition, displacement. in the largest gallery of the burchfield penney, a simulated, 120’ x 39’ canal barge was constructed and outfitted with galleries for exhibiting art. in these spaces, questions of commodity, aesthetics, inclusion and value were considered and formed the platform for which artists’ works were curated. the result was a mish-mash of the varied possible items one might ship, value or encounter in a world of interaction and engagement and ways that community connects, facilitated by the erie canal. in new york state, there are over 170 historical markers related to the erie canal. these include the notation of canal locks, but more frequently for factoids like, “only road under the erie canal in ripley's believe it or not. culvert built in 1823,” for the culvert road in ridgeway, ny. another example is, “site of queen anne chapel, built 1711-12 for use of mohawk indians. torn down 1821 to make way for erie canal…,” in fort hunter, ny. whether for relics no longer in existence, or facts confirmed by ripley’s and the like, history—and our remembrance of it—continuously evolves. artist/curators erika abbondanzieri, julian montague, aj fries, kate gaudy, dietrich olivier delrieu-schulze, and brian larson clark have created truthy versions—hypothetical and real possibilities of places and sights of significance related to the erie canal—that one might encounter in our contemporary world. installed throughout the museum are videos, sculptures, paintings, banners and ephemera that provide a context for considering the erie canal, encountered in th

    features over 30 oil paintings and works on paper started in the areas where charles burchfield loved to work—west seneca, east aurora, chestnut ridge park, downtown buffalo, and salem, oh. selections of drawings from the burchfield archives that influenced koch as he worked will also be in the installation. koch spent many hours in the burchfield penney art center archive poring through thousands of burchfield drawings. “my researched revealed just how seriously he took his own talent. burchfield built up his world step by step with preparatory studies he organized and documented which made a big impression on me,” said koch. “it inspired me to think about recording my work in a meaningful, systematic way.” burchfield in his maturity came to reevaluate and re-value the work he had done in his early years and incorporated it into later paintings which inspired koch to reassess the work he did as a young artist. “i saw more excitement, it was better than i remembered and encouraged me want to go back to borrow some of things i used to do in my 20s and 30s,” said koch. “his openness to changing his mind about his early work encouraged me to reconsider my own methods. as a result, i began painting in oil outdoors again for the first time in 20 years. it has felt like a warm breeze renewing my excitement with the natural world.” the residency provided koch, who was born in rochester, ny, his first opportunity to make art near where he grew up, as he didn’t study art until he went to college at oberlin, oh. “i was struck by how profoundly an artist is influenced by where they experience their childhood, in both my case and burchfield’s. you can see his childhood influencing the way he thought and felt all throughout the rest of his life and over and over you see imagery that comes right out of where he grew up,” said koch. “creating art work living in buffalo he recycled the excitement he felt as a kid in salem, ohio. painting in the environs where burchfield worked reminded me of where i grew up and so much

  • suddenly i awoke: the dream journals of charles e. burchfield

    burchfield penney art center

    buffalo | 10:00 AM

    charles burchfield wrote in his essay, "50 years as a painter," that he thought of the year 1915 as the true beginning of his art career[i]. around the same time in switzerland, carl gustav jung (1875-1961) began to compile what would later be known as the red book. in 1911, after graduating from high school, burchfield, having already received a scholarship for college, had to delay his entry into art school because of a bought of typhoid fever. it was during this time that he began to read the work of american naturalist writers john burroughs (1873-1921) and henry david thoreau (1817-1862). their descriptive and thoughtful prose had a great effect on him and the way that he wrote about nature. starting in 1912 carl jung had a series of disturbing dreams that led to what he described as a “confrontation with the unconscious.[ii]” visions of death and destruction, and rivers of blood led to a feeling of disorientation and concerns about a “psychic disturbance” within himself. in order to process the visions he consciously submitted himself to the impulses of his unconscious, which led him to an analysis of his childhood memories. during the summer of 1917, burchfield was chiefly concerned with recording “childhood impressions.” he wrote in a manuscript later in life that “the summer of 1917 was (in retrospect) a long dream-like one, much of the time was given over to the re-creation of childhood memories and moods.” throughout his career burchfield recorded more than a hundred dreams in his journals. he also created thousands of doodles which he called “a form of subconscious thinking in visual terms.” he went on to say that some of his most useful abstract motifs came from the practice. carl jung, while serving in the military during world war i in 1917, drew a series of twenty-seven mandalas in pencil in his army notebook. these drawing would later inspire the paintings that fill the red book, known to him as liber novus. admission adults: $10 seniors (62 & over): $8 students (with id): $5

  • the lure of niagara: highlights from the charles rand penney historical niagara falls print collection

    castellani art museum

    lewiston | 11:00 AM

    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.

    western new york book arts center

    buffalo | 12:00 PM

    on view: march 8 – april 21, 2018 nurtured memories is an exhibit by artist phyllis thompson. thompson uses the process of monotype printmaking with the use of assorted collage materials to create one-of-a kind mixed media prints. the prints include memories from the artist’s childhood, of experiences with family and friends, and with ancestors she has only met through photographs. the show features a series of works called reminiscences which can be likened to daydreams, meditations, and doodles. they are shapes, textures, words and patterns that come together in visual form. more information: wnybookarts.org/exhibitions thompson will also lead an artist’s talk and demonstration on saturday, march 10 from 12–3pm.
