Made almost entirely from discarded and recycled materials, the menagerie will charm and inspire viewers of all ages. The exhibit will be open Monday through Saturday, February 18 – 23, 10am to 4pm.</p> <p>If you would like to try creating your own menagerie, CMCA’s ArtLab will be open from 2-4pm each day of the exhibit, stocked with recycled materials (feel free to bring along your own bits and pieces as well).</p> <p>Admission to <em>The Recycled Menagerie</em> exhibit and ArtLab is free of charge, but donations are accepted.</p> <p><strong>More about the Artist</strong><br /> Joel Glassman was born in Philadelphia in 1911. He began designing shoes at age 17, and continued to design for clients until age 94. Joel and his wife Eleanor lived in Italy for 15 years, providing design services for companies all over the world. When Joel was 80, he began to create his <em>Recycled Menagerie</em>. He presented his creatures to children in schools and museums, to encourage them to create with materials they might throw away. Joel died in Camden, Maine on July 12, 2007, three months shy of his 96th birthday.</p> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 13 Feb 2013 04:56:09 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Nick Kennedy - Laing Art Gallery - February 18th, 2013 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <div class="content"> <p>Timecasting is a new large-scale kinetic drawing installation by Newcastle based artist, Nick Kennedy.</p> <p>Developed from the artist's wider interests in the notions of chance, order, control and the role of the systems in our understanding and perception of the world, Timecasting can be seen as an experiment in recording time and making it visible through a mechanised drawing process.</p> <p>The installation consists of a number of autonomous drawing devices, growing week by week to mirror the passage of time. Operating continuously throughout the three month exhibition period, each of these Timecasts will trace out a delicate graphite form on the paper it rests on.</p> <p>Like the slow erosion of rock in a river bed over millions of years, the process of accumulation is organic. Nearly eight million seconds will pass in this time and with each one tiny, barely perceptible marks will register. Invisible in the moment, these marks gradually build to reveal order from apparent chaotic movement. </p> </div> Sat, 16 Feb 2013 00:18:55 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Julian Twigg - AUSTRALIAN GALLERIES 15 Roylston Street - February 19th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Painter, ceramicist and printmaker Julian Twigg completed a Diploma of Visual Art at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2000.

The exhibition does not look to identify one thesis on Cubism, but to present several different viewpoints on the subject which are partisan - even conflicting. <em>Analysing Cubism</em> does not propose that the notion of Cubism is somehow contested, but points out that many different scholars and artists have taken the principles of Cubism and translated them in very different ways. This model fits with the wider programming ideas at IMMA and the Crawford Art Gallery, as it signals ways in which Cubism and cubist artists remain relevant to many contemporary artists. The exhibition will shift focus away from Picasso and Braque, who quickly abandoned this form of abstraction, to the artist Albert Gleizes in the development of the movement. Gleizes was the teacher of Mainie Jellett and Evie Hone, both who returned to Ireland and, particularly Jellett, who maintained a focus on abstraction which was unrivalled by other artists at the time.</p> Tue, 22 Jan 2013 02:28:08 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Group Show - K20 GRABBEPLATZ - February 20th, 2013 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM <p>Beginning in 1945, sculptors working at the Düsseldorf Art Academy – an institution with a rich and varied tradition – supplied vital impulses having a broad influence. With outstanding works by 50 artists, the selection represents a striking panorama of modern sculptural practices, and outlines with singular incisiveness the ways in which artistic ideas emerge, are transformed, and generate novelty.</p> Thu, 07 Feb 2013 02:20:15 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Museum of Fine Arts Boston - February 20th, 2013 10:00 AM - 9:45 PM <p>"Blue and white" means, at its simplest, cobalt pigment applied to white clay. Over the course of a millennium, blue-and-white porcelain has become one of the most recognized types of ceramic production worldwide. With roots in the Islamic world and Asia, and strong presence in Europe and the Americas, various cultures adapted blue-and-white, from the Willow pattern to <em>isznik</em>. Taking inspiration from global blue-and-white traditions, today’s artists continue the story, creating works that speak to contemporary ideas. They tackle diverse issues, ranging from the public (the political landscape, cross-cultural interchange), to the personal (family, memory, the act of collecting), to the aesthetic (abstraction, pattern, the role of decoration). “New Blue and White” explores the ways in which contemporary makers, working in ceramics as well as other media ranging from fiber to furniture to glass, have explored this rich body of material culture. An international selection of artists and designers is featured in the exhibition, and recent acquisitions of work by the ceramic sculptor Chris Antemann and fashion designers Rodarte are drawn from the MFA’s own collection.</p> Sat, 12 Jan 2013 01:25:04 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Marie-Eve Beaulieu, Marie Dauverne, Candice Davies, Paul Hardy, Jenna Meyers, Melanie Perreault, Caroline St-Laurent, Etienne Tremblay-Tardif - Parisian Laundry - February 20th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Chaque année, les finissants de maitrise en arts visuels de l’Université Concordia et de l’Université du Québec à Montréal sont invités à soumettre leurs projets de fin de maitrise pour une exposition collective unique.<br /> Cette année s’est avérée particulièrement intéressante et passionnante pour les étudiants du Québec, qui ont montré une résistance organisée et déterminée dans leurs protestations contre la hausse brutale des droits de scolarité. Les manifestations continues se sont rapidement transformées en une lutte pour le droit à l’expression collective, symbolisée par un carré rouge, des casseroles et un costume de panda. Les étudiants ont fait entendre leurs voix, haut et fort. Les revendications croisées formaient un patchwork d’identités à l’élan irrésistible. Ce même élan, cette même expression résolue se retrouvent dans les huit projets sélectionnés cette année pour le projet Collision 9. Nos vies personnelles et la manifestation concrète de leur réalité inspirent et nourrissent notre aspiration fondamentale à nous faire entendre et reconnaitre.<br /> <br /> <br /> Each year, graduating MFA students from Concordia University and Université du Québec à Montréal are invited to submit thesis projects for a unique group show.<br /> It has been an interesting and passionate year for Quebec university students squarely forming a contingency of opposition and resistance to an increase in tuition. Ground up manifestation shifted swiftly to a human rights issue made visible by a formal red square, household pots and pans and a panda suit. Students pushed their voices forward and were heard, loud. Stories were intertwined becoming a complex patchwork of identity and charisma. This same stamina and voice making is pronounced in the eight thesis projects selected for this year’s Collision 9 exhibition. One’s personal life and its translatable physical evidence inspire and give rise to the invaluable need to be heard and recognized.</p> Thu, 14 Feb 2013 23:12:39 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Kehinde Wiley - Phoenix Art Museum - February 20th, 2013 10:00 AM - 9:00 PM <p>Phoenix Art Museum will premier a new series of paintings by the New York artist Kehinde Wiley (American, b. 1976). Wiley gained critical acclaim for his heroic portraits addressing image and status of young men of color within a framework that re-envisions classical styles of portraiture and empowers his sitters. His latest series continues this interest with eight paintings based on the work of Hans Memling (1430-1494)—the Flemish master painter of the Northern Renaissance. At a time when portraiture focused primarily on royalty and leaders of the church, Memling created realistic portraits of ordinary individuals set against realistic backgrounds such as verdant landscapes, windowsills or columned spaces. Wiley’s paintings reinterpret Memling’s works, replacing the austere 15th century figures with the engaging, bold subjects of young black men in street clothes. Wiley’s Memling series represents a serious departure in style and scale from his previous work. They are painted on wood panel – a first in Wiley’s career. The new works is also much smaller: measuring between 11 x 15 inches and 15 x 20 inches. This represents a marked contrast to Wiley’s previous work, which utilized grand scale and perspective to create a sense of power and heroism but these small and intimate portraits are equally bold and powerful, commanding a closer viewing.</p> Tue, 22 Jan 2013 00:10:19 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Sasha Braunig, Aya Uekawa, Erik Thor Sandberg - The Baltimore Museum of Art - February 20th, 2013 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p>The Front Room's innovative, exciting, and diverse contemporary art exhibitions and projects offer visitors opportunities to experience an ever-changing variety of new perspectives from emerging and mid-career artists.</p> <p><em>Front Room: Surreal Selves</em> presents 16 figurative paintings by three international artists influenced by old master techniques and pop culture. Their work suggests a resurgence of Surrealism with images that convey personal fantasies, nightmares, and new permutations for the human body in a technology-driven world. Sasha Braunig (Canadian, born 1983; currently based in Maine), Aya Uekawa (Japanese, born 1979; currently based in Beacon, NY), and Erik Thor Sandberg (American, born 1975; based in Washington, DC) are the featured artists.</p> Fri, 01 Feb 2013 22:57:37 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - The Honolulu Museum of Art - February 20th, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM <p>Over 2,000 years, a number of unique painting formats developed in China that were radically different than the oil paintings on framed rectangular canvases that eventually became standard in Europe. At its most basic level, European painting was an art form for public display, hung on a wall, occupying and visible from an entire room. While similar paintings are also found in Chinese art, other formats, in particular, handscrolls, were intended for more intimate viewing by a small number of acquaintances.</p> <p>By their very nature, handscrolls could not be publically displayed for long periods of time; they were unrolled for a single viewing, in itself often a rare and special event, and then rolled back up and stored until the next viewing. Handscrolls were also not meant to be seen all at once; as each section was opened, the previous section was closed, much like walking through a landscape where, once passed, one scene disappears from view as a new scene opens, offering new surprises around every corner.</p> <p>This exhibition presents four of the finest Chinese handscrolls from the museum’s collection, including <i>The Hundred Geese</i>, one of the most evocative examples of the late imperial academic style from the 13th century.</p> Wed, 20 Feb 2013 08:02:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Art Gallery of New South Wales - February 21st, 2013 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM <p>A dynamic and popular exhibition featuring a selection of outstanding student artworks developed for the artmaking component of the HSC examination in Visual Arts, 2012.

MAM has been blessed over the last few years with several donations of exceptional artworks that we are excited to show off in this exhibition.</p> <p>The Missoula Art Museum relies on the generosity of the community to grow the permanent collection. Indeed, community participation has been the keystone for the steady growth of the MAM Collection over the years. In the year 2011 alone, over 250 artworks were donated to the collection, including a gift of 225 Hmong textiles. Artists are crucial donors to MAM’s Collection, and recently artists such as Kevin Red Star, Peter Koch, Rick Bartow, George Gogas, Phoebe Toland, and Dwayne Wilcox have donated works.</p> <p>Other recent donations include artworks from the estates of Montana painter Gennie DeWeese and Oregon sculptor Manuel Izquierdo. Generous individual collectors also have helped grow our collection, including several Jay Rummel works from Fred and Susan Reed, a Leslie Van Stavern Millar II painting from Mae Nan Ellingson, a Branson Stevenson etching from Les and Marian Holter Brod, two James Todd drawings from Ron Wheeler and Donna Mell, a John Well-Off-Man painting and Lee Nye photograph from Tim Gordon, and many more.</p> <p>MAM’s continuing growing collection is evidence of the generosity of our community, and this exhibition demonstrates our commitment to holding artworks in care and trust for future generations.</p> Mon, 21 Jan 2013 05:16:05 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list
