An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until October 4, 2020
After the long pandemic shutdown, Rockland Center for the Arts is happy to announce that it is opening up its studio and gallery exhibition spaces to small groups of people. Visitors will need to schedule an appointment to see the exhibitions in order to limit the number of people in the gallery at any given time. This September RoCA presents three exhibitions: Kris Campbell’s LOOK AT ME, Leslie Fandrich’s The Feminine Perception: Beauty and Nonsense and Contemporary Hudson Valley Artists: RoCA Faculty Exhibit. The RoCA Faculty Exhibit will be on view Sept. 10 thru Sept. 24. LOOK AT ME and The Feminine Perception will be on view Sept. 10 – Oct. 4, 2020.
Contemporary Rockland Artists: RoCA Faculty Exhibit celebrates the teaching artists at RoCA. The exceptional faculty actively creates, teaches and exhibits throughout the U.S. and the Hudson Valley. We are proud to list just a few of these accomplished teachers: Marlene Krumm-Sanders’ open ceramic sculpture forms are depictions of provocative architectural abstractions that play with tension between solid and negative spaces while simultaneously creating an illusion of defying gravity, and appearing to displace weight and push volume. Grids of lines wrap their way around the exterior of the object. The final sculptures are calm and content. Sanders studied at Parsons and at the American College in Paris, France. She exhibits extensively.
Jane Chang’s Chinese Brush Paintings are based on one of the most renowned approaches to painting. It unifies what were considered the highest forms of creativity in China: painting, poetry, and calligraphy. Known as the “Three Perfections,” the painting style combines these disciplines to depict nature as a stylized extension of the emotional world of the artist. Chang studied master classes with Madame Aixinjueluo Hinyi, a descendant of the imperial Qing Dynasty, China.
Eleanor Miller is a classically trained artist, having studied under Eleanor Mikus, a Vanguard Minimalist, and Bernard Aptekar, one of the original SOHO Ten Downtown at Monmouth University. She continued studies at the National Academy School of Fine Arts. Miller has exhibited extensively throughout the East Coast and is the recipient of numerous awards, including Best of Show at the Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA, the Anna Hyatt Huntington Award from the National Arts Club, and the Gamblin Artists Award from the Salmagundi Club.
We invite you to view this exhibit of extraordinary artists of Rockland, on view Sept. 10 – Sept. 24. Free to the general public. We are limiting the number of people in the gallery at one time in order to keep everyone safe. To reserve a day and time to see the exhibit call 845-358-0877.
