ADD JUNCTURE

Posted on 14 June 2011 by Niki lopez

Theme: ADD JUNCTURE and NANNETTE CHERRY Solo Exhibition
Date:  July 2, 2011
Produced by: Lisa Rockford
Where: 1310 Gallery- Sailboat Bend Artists Lofts

More info:

Lisa Rockford & 1310 Gallery present a one week exhibition on three floors with Innovative works by Regional Artists, ranging from Drawing to Fiber art to Sound and Installation art. Lisa Rockford set a precedent for curatorial flair with her the Myth of Power exhibition at 1310 Gallery for ART FALLOUT 2010, which drew over 500 attendees to the opening.

ADD JUNCTURE
Can Florida College Adjuncts practice what they preach? ADD JUNCTURE answers that question with a sampling of the range of talent found in Florida academia. Two Floors are dedicated to this juried group exhibition of 17 Artists. These individuals live a double life: Making a living as Part-time art Professors at Florida Colleges or Universities, and simultaneously dedicated to their Professional art careers, creating and exhibiting in National museum and Gallery shows.

The exhibition highlights works by Leslie Elsasser of University of South Florida, that were created with a Fulbright to India where she learned from Lemogul miniaturists, working with two classical Indian painters who had lineage back to the mogul royal painting workshops.

and Gorgeta Fondos, who immigrated to the US in 2003 after receiving an arts education in Fine Arts with specialization in Fiber Arts at schools in Moldova, Romania, and Greece. Using the flame as a tool, Georgeta experiments with singeing and scorching various textiles. The matchstick’s flame is being directed to “draw”, “paint”, and “sculpt” elegant three-dimensional forms that evoke ideas of change, transformation, destruction, and loss. Metaphorically, at the level of human condition, she sees burning as a force that produces emotional excitement and agitation, but also discomfort, pain, and suffering.

Other artists in the exhibition include:

  • Sibel Kocabasi, who recently won the 2010 South Florida Cultural Consortium
  • Rod Appleton
  • Ariel Baron-Robbins
  • Angelica Clyman
  • Ashley E. Craig
  • Natasha Duwin
  • Connor Goodman
  • Patricia Lois Nuss
  • Nicole A. Martinez
  • Kristin Miller Hopkins
  • Paula Kolek
  • Raymond Olivero
  • Tyler K. Smith
  • Carmen Tiffany
  • LeeAnna Yater
  • Nikolaos Yulis

NANNETTE CHERRY (see image)
The First Floor is dedicated to a Solo Exhibition of New Works by Nannette Cherry.
The portrait has been a common element in the art of Nannette Cherry over the years. Borrowing from the work of the Old Masters, while adding a Surrealist touch, Cherry employs digital manipulation before committing the imagery to canvas or paper. The distortions, which trademark these portraits, speak to the idea that our perceptions and memories can easily be skewed, just as the presented image is. The series includes both oil paintings and soft pastel drawings, frequently presented in atypical color schemes that suggest psychedelic art influences, as well as nod to the notion that our perceptions are variable and often unpredictable.

Nannette resides in Orlando, Florida. Her work has been shown throughout Florida, New York and Chicago.

OPENING RECEPTION Sat. 7/2/2011, 7-10pm
CLOSING RECEPTION Fri. 7/8/2011, 7-10pm
