The Mythic Figure @ Schick Gallery

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

I was told it would be okay to make a joke about this sculpture’s resemblance to a dinosaur turd, but I won’t because I’m a very mature writer

Tomorrow is the opening reception for “The Mythic Figure,” an exhibition of works by sculptors William Tucker and Ed Smith and painter Pamela Avril, at the Schick Gallery.

Apparently, this is the first sculpture show at the Schick, or at least the first in a very long time (I certainly don’t remember any other sculpture shows in my time here). It’s curated by John Galt (the art professor, not the famous objectivist revolutionary).

Also, there will probably delicious free food (the chicken satay/peanut sauce combo DESTROYED THE COMPETITION at the last Schick opening I attended).

2013 Skidmore Student Exhibition

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

“This one’s cool.”

Tomorrow is the opening reception of the 2013 Skidmore Student Exhibition, when a panel of jurors picks and curates a gallery exhibition of student artwork.

Here’s the Skidmore Propaganda on the event:

Each year, a guest juror selects the exhibition from work completed by Skidmore students in the areas of ceramics, drawing and painting, electronic media, fiber arts, graphic design, jewelry and metals, installation, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. From an average of 250 entries, the juror typically chooses one-quarter to one-third of that number for exhibit; she also selects outstanding work for special awards. Prizes and gift certificates totaling over $1000 are funded annually through donations made by friends of the gallery, campus organizations, and Saratoga Springs businesses, and are announced at the opening reception.
The guest juror for this year’s show is Kathryn Price, Curator of Special Projects at Williams College Museum of Art in Williamstown, MA. Price oversees the curatorial department, including managing exhibitions, publications, and collections. Her areas of interest include 19th-century American and European art and modern and contemporary art.

As a talentless loser, I cannot stand this sort of thing, because it just exposes my own failings to the world and forces me to question my worth as a human being. See you there!

Schick Gallery Presents: The Muse at Home

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

More like Gertrude FINE

Tomorrow is the opening of The Muse at Home, an exhibition of artwork owned by 27 faculty and staff members from the Tang and the Studio Art and Art History departments.

The Muse at Home will explore “how and why people decide to live with art,” and will feature works ranging “from contemporary art to African textiles, and from illustrations by William Steig and Saul Steinberg to a Dresang stoneware teapot and an early twentieth century tea service.”

The exhibition will also include discussions of the theory of “collecting,” along with interviews conducted by Curatorial Assistant Rebecca Shepard. I’m also told there will be free food and who knows maybe booze?

Plaidish by Victoria Palermo

Here’s another installment of our “Professors-Are-People-Too” series: there will be an opening reception for the 2012 Selected Art Faculty Exhibition (unnecessarily awkward title, I know) at the Schick Gallery tomorrow night.

Each year, the Schick displays the work of several faculty artists. This year, the artists include: Trish Lyell, drawings; Deborah Morris, paintings; Victoria Palermo, sculpture, and Matt Wilt, ceramics.

The exhibition will run from September 13 to October 21.
