RADAR – An Environmental-Inspired Exhibition Coming to Town
SARATOGA SPRINGS – Artlery and the Harrison Lobdell Gallery will present ¨RADAR¨ – a 32-piece collection exploring the many dimensions of climate change from a feminist perspective. After premiering in Boston, the exhibition will travel to Saratoga Springs to be featured at the Harrison Lobdell Gallery (2 Franklin Square.) The public is invited to the opening on Saturday, March 24 from 5-8 p.m., and have an opportunity to meet Artlery Director, Tameka Eastman-Coburn, who juried the showcase. The works will be displayed until May 14.
Expect to encounter a variety of mediums exploring humanity’s impact on the ecosystem, ranging from abstract paintings to conceptual constructions. Sinikka Nogelo’s Washed Up assemblage, for example, contains metallic recyclables and found objects representing pollution. Similarly, Karen Cass’ oil painting called Dwindling symbolizes the gradual depletion of natural resources. Frances Andahazy is another exhibitor whose Transcendental Wane multimedia collage conceptualizes the role of an artist in provoking a visceral response to environmental degradation.
¨There’s something about oil paint that’s both beautiful and physical,¨ says Andahazy. ¨My work addresses land use and the destruction of the environment. Paintings are deliberately painted with beauty to address the viewer to a world we may lose one day.¨
All of the exhibitors are members of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) – the oldest and first organization for women artists in the country. Other participants include: Kim Alemian, Donna Caselden, Dale Sherman Blodget, Donna Caselden, Jennifer Jean Costello, Rosalie Cuticchia, Mary Davidson, Terry Del Percio, Karen Fitzgerald, Barbara Fletcher, Christine Frisbee, Ingrid Johnson, Linda Pearlman Karlsberg, Sandee Johnson, Cindy Journey, Mary Judge, Carolyn Latanision, Bonita LeFlore, Ellen Rolli, Karen Rovner, Pamela Tarbell, Robin Thornhill, and Heidi Caswell Zander.
