Fourty-four color lithographs of paintings by surrealist Rene Magritte will be on display at the David Barnett Gallery for the first time. The limited- edition lithographs were produced in partnership with the artist’s estate. Each printing plate was hand-drawn, and some prints have over 20 colors to achieve the desired effect. The plates were destroyed after printing was complete.
Photography from the Collection-Our pop-up show highlights photographers in the collection, including Murray Weiss, Robert Kawika- Sheer, Jessie Spiess, Thomas Ferderbar, and David Barnett.
New Photography by Christopher Winters Grand Opening Event-Gallery Talk with the Artist: January 17, 5-9pm Gallery Night Open House: April 17, 5-9pm Organized around the release of the new book IRONBOAT by Christopher Winters, this exhibition is a wonderfully vibrant and powerful collection of photographs tracing the toil and travels of a pair of ironboats on the Great Lakes Superior and Michigan. Most notably, it is an artistic and visual record of the Wilfred Sykes—the largest vessel on the Great Lakes at the time of her launch in 1949—and the Edward Ryerson—one of two remaining straightdeckers on the American Great Lakes.
Artist and writer Nathaniel Stern exhibits a range of possibilities and potential for our electronic waste with sculptures, prints, photographs, and experiments that encourage viewers to consider their relationship with technology and nature. Combining plant life with electronic waste and scientific experimentation with artistic exploration, the multi-faceted installation includes a wall-hung jungle of computer detritus and plant life, fossilized and reconfigured phones and laptops, and imaginatively re-purposed electronics. The exhibition is a timely provocation that will leave viewers contemplating how we might change our ecological trajectory. The Exhibit runs from Jan 17-March 25 and is open from 6AM-1AM daily.
