    buffalo | 10:00 AM

    anne currier is a sculptor whose medium is ceramic, and she is the recipient of the 2018 langley h. kenzie award which entitles her to a solo exhibition. in display, currier will present sculpture from her anamorphosis series, plus a new collection of wall-mounted sculptures created specifically for the exhibition, and an installation of tile panels designed this year in collaboration with boston valley terra cotta in orchard park, new york. professor emerita of ceramic art at alfred university, the number one ranked ceramic art master's program in the country by u.s. news and world report, currier was recently named first-place recipient of a 2017 virginia a. groot foundation grant. her sculptures are represented in numerous private and public collections, which include the metropolitan museum of art, new york city; renwick gallery of the national museum of american art, smithsonian institution; daum museum of contemporary art in sedalia, missouri; musée des arts decoratifs de montréal; los angeles county museum of art; museum of contemporary art, kyung-ju, south korea; and hermitage museum, st. petersburg, russia. “display, the title of the exhibition, echoes the context or intent of an object and how it can shift when placed in varying spaces; but it’s really all one display,” says anne currier. “showing my work as the langley h. kenzie award recipient is part of a series of year-long positive coincidences. the burchfield penney’s support of craft-based media, exhibiting in its sylvia l. rosen gallery and earning a collaborative grant to design tile walls with boston valley terra cotta is a confluence that transformed 2017 into a miracle for me.” “currier’s sculpture is both a study in balance and an invitation to discovery,” said nancy weekly, exhibition curator. as she has stated, her anamorphosis series reflects, “the interplay of masses and voids. absence and presence, light and shadow, stasis and motion are subject matter. the dimensional tension and dynamics of human figures found in greek and

  • the contradictions of being: composite works by harvey breverman

    burchfield penney art center

    buffalo | 10:00 AM

    the journey of influential educator, internationally recognized master printer, and painter harvey breverman has coalesced into an unraveling series of episodes or sequence of meaningful units. the burchfield penney presents breverman's 90th solo exhibition of more than 50 paintings and drawings, many of which have never been shown publicly before in western new york. the contradictions of being: composite works by harvey breverman provides museumgoers with an investigation of alluring montage, uniting disparate elements in a composition. born in pittsburgh in 1934, breverman went to carnegie-mellon university where he received his b.f.a. in 1956. from 1956 to 1958 he served with army special services in korea, and in 1960 earned an m.f.a. from the ohio university. the following year he moved to buffalo hired to teach drawing at the university at buffalo, promoted to full professor in 1969 and in 1999 to distinguished professor of art by the state university of new york board of trustees. he led the ub printmaking department until his retirement in 2005. “the discontinuous sequence series, the focus of this exhibition created between 1970-1974, evolved in many ways as an immediate reaction to the vietnam war political unrest on college campuses in the late 1960s and early 1970s,” said tullis johnson, exhibition curator and manager of archives. “around the same time, breverman sat on the committee that approved the inclusion of the department of media studies, founded by gerald o’grady, as a part of the ub school of arts & letters in 1973. the late tony conrad, a faculty member in that program, introduced him to the writings of soviet film directors dziga vertov and sergei eisenstein. eisenstein’s essay on the importance of montage, a dialectic approach to film form, was an important influence on work from this period.”

    feature more than 14 artists from the permanent collection. how is it that artists represent the passage and stillness of the days of our lives? what is time, and what does it mean to us? apart from seconds, minutes, hours, months, and years, how do we experience the passing of time? “mechanical measurement lacks the necessary emotional component that is true to the way that we experience life; the clock and calendar are only tools,” said scott propeack, burchfield penney interim director and chief curator. “our experience is a consideration of birthdays, work weeks, lives and deaths, waiting, and going. we make mental notes about when things have happened and when they will happen.” the work of artists marion faller and hollis frampton will provide movement spanning time, with work inspired by eadweard muybridge’s motion studies. frank duffy, grace mckendry, and others continue this theme in the exhibition. the seasons will be captured in the work of marsden hartley, harriet greif, and others. bruce adams’ the treason of archaeology: this is not a pipe #2, and others offer self-reflecting on history in both practice and art. while amanda besl and reginald marsh will provide the meaningful context of waiting, the experience that fills many of our hours. hints at the future come through works like, event horizon, by ted miller. “how we mark time, with still objects, is like a picture in a date book,” added propreack. “sometimes the image provides us with a sense of eternal racing, and at others times a sense of endless waiting or rest. however, we spend our hours, noting these moments can be arrived at best through the vision of our artists and the work in this exhibition that provides us with signatures and markers for time.” admission adults: $10 seniors (62 & over): $8 students (with id): $5 children (age 10 & under): free when accompanied by a paid adult/senior admission suny buffalo state students, faculty & staff: free united states and canada active military and their families: free

    burchfield penney art center

    buffalo | 10:00 AM

    new exhibition captures the range of charles e. burchfield’s artistic progression from wallpaper designs and prints to masterful paintings produced between 1921, when he moved to buffalo, until a turning point in 1943, when at age 50 he experimented with yet another great stylistic change. genius loci: burchfield’s spirits of place 1921-1943 will open friday, december 14, 2018, as part of m&t second friday showcasing works from the center, national museums, private collections, and illustrate this critical period in burchfield’s life when he advanced to one of the most famous artists in the country. curated by burchfield scholar nancy weekly, lenders of artworks in the exhibition include the columbus museum of art, columbus, ohio; dc moore gallery, new york, new york; fitchburg art museum, fitchburg, massachusetts; memorial art gallery, university of rochester, rochester, new york; the spiro family collection, courtesy, debra force fine art, new york; and an anonymous private collection. genius loci: burchfield’s spirit of place 1921-1943 will be on view through sunday, march 31, 2019. growing up in ohio, charles ephraim burchfield (1893-1967) had the myriad details of its landscape indelibly imprinted in his mind. “not satisfied with simply documenting his favorite countryside vistas, small-town eccentricities, and disturbing industrial blight, he revealed the true spirit of the places he painted. his perspective was not passive,” said weekly. “instead, he endeavored to paint lively images that could stimulate several senses, condensing a span of time into each work—from the quick flash of lightning to a meander through the woods. the character of each place was distinctive, capturing the magic of its essence.” november 1921 marks the month burchfield moved to buffalo, new york. although he left his ohio roots geographically, its memories still resonated in his imagination. his new job as assistant designer at the prestigious m. h. birge & sons company enabled him to use details from some of his be

  • the higner maritime collection: twenty-five years of ship building by justin higner

    castellani art museum

    lewiston | 11:00 AM

    the exhibition celebrates justin higner’s twenty-five-year shipbuilding career, highlighting the evolution of his model-building techniques and inventive, pseudo-historical nautical allegories. justin higner builds worlds. for as long as he can remember, justin has created all sorts of lived environments for real and imagined figures, from full cities made of brick and found stones to cardboard box villages with streets and a port. in 1994, justin’s passion would take a new direction after watching documentary after documentary about the titanic and the edmund fitzgerald: building worlds by building ships. the exhibition will feature models of cargo ships, cruise ships, salvages, shipwrecks, tankers, and tenders (or dinghies), as well as ships repurposed as convention centers, hotels, and museums. drawn from a collection centered on the artist’s fictional maritime settings, these works are accompanied by narratives that chronicle not only the vessels’ imagined histories, but also the interactions and relationships between the various builders and owners that populate the artist’s mythological world. higner utilizes many of the ships’ interiors to display miniature reproductions of works by regionally and nationally known artists, as well as his own artwork. these micro-exhibitions, featuring artwork accompanied by real-world historical documentation, reflect his admiration for the central mission of any given art, history, or cultural museum—to serve the public. the higner maritime collection is co-curated by michael j. beam, curator of exhibitions and special projects, and edward millar, curator of folk arts. support for this exhibition is provided by the new york state council on the arts with the support of governor andrew m. cuomo and the new york state legislature. for more information, visit www.castellaniartmuseum.org or call 716-286-8286.

    castellani art museum

    lewiston | 11:00 AM

    of traditional ethnic wedding dress worn within new york state’s diverse cultural landscape: how it is followed, adapted, or re-interpreted. ethnic wedding dress refers to the traditional clothing and adornment worn during a wedding ceremony that expresses ethnic identity. in contrast with everyday wear, a wedding ensemble communicates and emphasizes special meaning connected specifically to the ceremony. through the lens of clothing, fashioning identities highlights the intersection of tradition and innovation, the past and present, the individual and communal through examples of wedding ensembles, items of adornment, and photographs of wedding traditions from bhutanese nepali, filipino, chinese, thai, oaxacan, and arabic communities in new york. fashioning identities is a multiyear project made possible through citylore, the new york state council on the arts with the support of governor andrew m. cuomo and the new york state legislature, the coby foundation, and in part by an award from the national endowment for the arts.

    wny book arts center

    buffalo | 12:00 PM

    ginny o’brien and michael basinski are married and take advantage of their close proximity to compose collaboratively using language as material, and materials and color as language. they create work using markers, gouache, original photographs, snippets of cloth, and prepared materials. the practice involves exchanging the compositions literally at the table, passing them back and forth and thereby dissolving the notion of the single artist. the compositions pool and invite one to take an improvisational dip. basinski continues his life-long literary practices within the realm of the poem. o’brien is a mixed media painter, arts educator, and a resident artist leading visual arts activities for pediatric outpatients in a hospital clinic setting. in 2017, o’brien and basinski published their collaborative works in a book titled combinings with irish publisher redfox press. this exhibition’s title comes from the first cut on big brother and the holding company’s 1968 album cheap thrills. as janis jopin sang, “oh, oh – yeah!” for more information, visit http://wnybookarts.org/exhibitions/

    what does labor smell like? the burchfield penney tackles that sweaty, steamy question by scientifically creating it in an exhibition by paul vanouse, award-winning university at buffalo professor of art and director of coalesce: center for biological art. the scent of human exertion in stressful conditions is produced onsite. people are not involved in making the smell. it will be formed by bacteria procreating in three industrial fermenters in the middle of the center’s project space. these 80-gallon vessels, standing human height, will be cradled by temperature regulating units and motorized mixers connected to gas, nutrient and waste canisters by hoses. researcher solon morse, coalesce lab manager, is scientific collaborator on the project. “each fermenter incubates a unique species of human skin bacteria responsible for the primary scent of sweat: staphylococcus epidermis, coryne and propionibacterium,” explains vanouse, recipient of the award of distinction in hybrid art at the prestigious 2017 prix ars electronica, a cyberarts global festival and competition. “as these bacteria digest simple sugars and fats, they create the distinct smells associated with human exertion, stress and anxiety. their scents will combine in the central chamber in which a sweatshop icon, the white t-shirt, is infused as scents disseminate. this odor is expected to grow stronger throughout the exhibition.” labor reflects industrial society’s shift from human and machine labor, to increasingly pervasive forms of microbial manufacturing. “today, microbes produce a wide range of products, including enzymes, foods, beverages, feedstocks, fuels and pharmaceuticals.
