Expressions of Faith

Exploring the Religious Structures of Broome County

By Roger Luther

This hardcover book includes 142 pages of full color photographs featuring many of Broome County, New York’s churches, mosques, synagogues and temples.  It used to be said in the greater Binghamton area that there were more churches than bars in the community of immigrants drawn to the area at the turn of the 19th Century for jobs in the cigar rolling and shoe-making trades. That trend continues with the continuing influx of immigrants from all corners of the globe. Luther’s book can be purchased on line through RiverRead Books, 5 Court Street, Binghamton.  http://www.riverreadbooks.com, email riverreadbooks@stny.rr.com.

Luther is a preservationist, historian and photographer, and his works have celebrated the Southern Tier for many years.

RIVER READ BOOKS EVENTS 

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13

6:30 PM: An event with Jim Remsen
author of Visions of Teaoga

Visions of Teaoga explores the upheaval of Eastern Indian tribes in the 1700s by focusing on events at Teaoga (now Athens, Pa.), which stood on the front lines of frontier conflict over many decades. Visions of Teaoga, being richly researched and grounded in real events, is useful as supplemental reading in U.S. history classes. Several educators have noted how the book smoothly incorporates themes they emphasize including “content-rich informational text,” multiculturalism, historical empathy, evaluation of “loaded language,” government processes, and critical thinking about perspective.

Remsen is a career journalist who, upon retirement, was the Religion Editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer. He reported and edited countless news articles, leading a staff that captured national awards for its work. Since retiring from newspapers, Jim has pursued his keen interest in history — with a focus on underappreciated aspects of our nation’s local history. He says he decided to research and write the Teaoga story because it is important regional history he wishes he learned as a schoolboy growing up in northeastern Pennsylvania.

NEW YORK, NY

Leger

Leger, Les Constructeurs, 1950

The tenth edition of MASTER DRAWINGS IN NEW YORK –sister event to LONDON ART WEEK each summer – takes place Jan 24-31 here in New York, with a preview January 23.

This year several of the 30 participating dealers – who each stage their own exhibitions at galleries along the Madison Avenue “Gold Coast” on New York’s Upper East Side, — have acquired spectacular finds – either new to the market, newly discovered, or never exhibited before.

Among these is the FERNAND LEGER gouache and pencil LES CONSTRUCTEURS (The Builders) which New York dealer DAVID TUNICK is offering.  It is a major 1950 work shown only once before at the Grand Palais in 1971.  It is the definitive study for the painting of the same subject at the Sonja Henie-Onstad Art Centre Museum in Oslo.  The last time it was on the market was 1980.

London dealer LOWELL LIBSON LTD has a major rediscovered masterpiece by Sir Joshua Reynolds on offer, listed as missing since 1905.  “Dionysius Aeropagites” has only been known from an 18th century engraving according to Libson.  It depicts Reynolds’s favorite model, a street mender from York, George White.  It perfectly communicates Reynolds’s ambitions as a history painter shortly after the founding of the Royal Academy.

Binghamton:

A Photographic Memoir by Peg Johnston

 

            Peg Johnston mines her family’s archives for images of the Upstate New York City of Binghamton to create a narrative about the city’s evolution in the last half century. “Binghamton has gone through major changes, losing a significant part of our downtown and half of our population. I want to tell that and other stories about my hometown in a visual way,” comments Johnston, a photographer who often does installations at the Cooperative Gallery. Included will be some of the photographs of Robert Johnston, now deceased, and a former gallery member. In addition to recently digitized photos from the city of her childhood, Johnston explores Urban Renewal, documents several decades of protests in Binghamton, and looks forward to the future.

            All images have been digitized and are in black and white. “I feel that memories are best represented this way, and all of my father’s photos were originally in black and white. But these images are contrasty and sometimes grainy, not the fine prints my father would have produced. I want to generate images for the Facebook generation, images that swim into your consciousness,” explained Johnston. 

Binghamton: A Photographic Memoir will be on display September 4- 27th, 2014 at the Cooperative Gallery 213 State St. The opening is on Thursday Sept. 4th from 6-8 pm. On the First Friday Art Walk  Sept. 5th, the gallery is open from 3 pm to 9 pm. A panel discussion on the “Evolution of Binghamton” will take place at the Third Thursday Art Discussion Sept. 18th at 7 pm with Roger Luther of the Preservation Society, Mark Bowers, planner, and other speakers to be announced. Finally, a closing reception will show the locally made video “Rust to Roots” by Kevin Hannagan. All events are free and open to the public.

You Poked Me

On Facebook

Three Young Curators Address Romance and its Identity in the Digital Age in a Pop-up Show in Midtown Manhattan this August.

Three young curators, all around the age of twentY, present the exhibition “You Poked Me On Facebook” in midtown Manhattan on August 15th. It will be a two-day love affair with all the qualms and blessings that modern-day romance has to offer. The gallery is located on the 3rd floor of 6 West 37th street. The theme is the controversial, as well as malleable, role Romance plays in the modern day. The exhibition features several young artists from the New York City area. Two of the curators were formerly with T.A.G. (Teen Art Gallery).

To honor the mysterious nature of love, much is left to the imagination, but the show promises to provide hands-on activities, and confrontational performances all emulating the growing tensions between the concept of true love and its place inside and outside social media and technology. There will be Harp performances, a modern-day cupid (diapers and all), and an opportunity to engage with other guests and find your perfect match!

As technology advances, our tales of love change with the emergence of new devices such as Tinder, Facebook and even Craigslist. Love’s relationship with product is becoming more complicated as its status as such solidifies. As children we are fed fairy tales of the prince and princess who find each other on the wholesome and haphazard path to true love. We must reconcile this vision and condense it into the latest apps and activities, altering the nature of what we perceive to be true love and altering the path to find it. This show explores the new type of love born out of a shift in social media platforms, as well as its older counterpart. Choose your weapon: Tinder, Match.com, Eharmony, Grinder ect. With each new app, the path to love is simplified. We have reached the age of Love made easy.

Alex Rennie & Karen Gunderson

An exhibition of recent paintings

Preview Evening
Wednesday 9 July 6-8 pm
47 Albemarle Street, London
Exhibition runs until 1 August. All works can be view here.

This July Waterhouse & Dodd will present a selection of recent paintings by two of the gallery’s artists, Alex Rennie and Karen Gunderson. Alex will be well known to visitors of the London gallery having had a solo exhibition in October 2012 and has shown regularly in mixed exhibitions and art fairs since then. Karen had a solo exhibition at our New York gallery in November 2013. The artists have exhibited together before, most recently at the Pulse (New York) and Art Miami art fairs.

Although these two artists are not linked in any clearly defined stylist or thematic way, both have used a traditional medium (oil painting) and traditional subject matter (landscape and the built environment) to create startling images of great originality. Both use a limited palate and deceptively simple compositions to create visually arresting and contemplative images.

The Cleve Carney Art Gallery
opening preview of
 “Vivian Maier: Exposed”
co-curated by Frank Jackowiak and Barbara Wiesen
Tuesday, June 17 6-8 p.m.

The Cleve Carney Art Gallery
at the McAninch Arts Center,
425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn, Ill.

Born in New York City in 1926, Vivian Maier spent her childhood in France before returning to New York in the late 1930’s. Later, Maier moved to Chicago and worked as a nanny for nearly 40 years, a livelihood that supported her and her passion for photography. Maier produced more than 100,000 negatives during her life, but showed them to very few people. Her work remained unknown until its discovery in 2007, only a year after her death. Since then, Maier’s photos have ignited passion and enthusiasm in photography buffs and art enthusiasts alike worldwide.

The evening includes a meet and greet with members of “Team Vivian,”
a College of DuPage team including vintage film processor, Jackowiak, and
several film and photography students who processed her film.

Brooke Mason: La Haute Main

May 26 – June 15, 2014

Opening Reception: Wednesday, May 28th 7-10 pm
Collector’s Reception: Friday, May 30th 7-10 pm  

Brooke Mason’s inaugural US exhibition, La Haute Main, challenges the long-held stereotypes of femininity and power by addressing issues of gender roles, perceptions of strength and the identity of women. Influenced by the tenets of Greco-Roman mythology and the refined elegance of classic films, Mason’s artwork captures the essence of female beauty and the interdependence of the sexes in 13 luscious, large-scale, intimate scenes printed on high-definition gloss aluminum.  Mason says of her work, “I enjoy delving into contrasts – yin and yang, femininity and masculinity, and the role reversals within.” 

Mason is an Australian-born, Los Angeles-based photographer with 15 years’ experience in the fashion and entertainment industries.

CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR STEPHEN BELBER’S

“ T H E   M U S C L E S   I N    OU R    T O E S ”

PREMIERING AT

LABYRINTH THEATER COMPANY

JUNE 2014

TICKETS ON SALE TODAY!

New York, NY Labyrinth Theater Company (Artistic Director Mimi O’Donnell, Managing Director Danny Feldman), the award-winning, downtown ensemble, announced today the complete casting for the New York Premiere of The Muscles in Our Toes by Labyrinth Company Member Stephen Belber, directed by Anne Kauffman. The play begins performances on June 14, with an official opening night set for June 26, 2014, at Labyrinth’s home in New York City’s West Village, the Bank Street Theater (155 Bank Street).

The complete cast of The Muscles in Our Toes includes Amir Arison, Nadia Dajani, Bill Dawes, Samuel Ray Gates, Matthew Maher, and Mather Zickel. 

In this dark comedy, four friends meet at their high school reunion, and ponder a plan to free their old friend who’s been kidnapped by a radical political group. Absurdity, intensity and plain ole weirdness ensue when this inebriated, stoned, adolescently arrested, religiously confused group of friends attempts to tackle the task at hand and at the same time, debate the forces of international terrorism.

The design team for The Muscles in Our Toes includes 2014 Tony Award nominee Japhy Weideman (Lighting Design), Lee Savage (Set Design), Emily Rebholz (Costume Design), and Jessica Paz (Sound Design).

Labyrinth Theater Company is devoted to providing affordable ticket prices for the community. We are pleased to announce that tickets for The Muscles in Our Toes are $20 when purchased on or before June 25. After that date, tickets prices will be available starting at $35. Tickets are available online at labtheater.org or by calling (212)513-1080. More information is available at http://labtheater.org/the-muscles-in-our-toes/.

RED MOLLY 1

CATCHING RED MOLLY

HOMER – If one word describes the new Red Molly CD, Light in the Sky, that word is joyous. Once again, with the “tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals and caramel harmonies” that the Boston Globe praised, Red Molly creates an album with gorgeous a cappella ballads, bluegrass-tinged folk and a touch of jazzy western swing, all done up in Red Molly’s trademark three-part harmonies, signature dobro licks and inventive arrangements. The title sets the theme for the 14 tracks: optimism, joy, and excitement for the future.

Catch them next at The Center for the Arts in Homer, located at 72 South Main Street in the village, at the corner of Routes 11 and 90, just off exit 12 of I-81.

 Jock Docs Presents: Lenny Cooke

(The best in sports documentaries.)

Lenny Cooke

Benny Safdie and Joshua Safdie, 2013, 90 min.

In 2001, Lenny Cooke was the most hyped high school basketball player in the country, ranked above future greats LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. In an era when high school stars were forgoing college hoops in favor of the potential multi-million dollar contracts promised in the NBA draft, Lenny was supposed to be the next superstar. He had the world at his fingertips. But over a decade later, while his peers are taking home MVP awards and championship trophies, Lenny has never played a minute in the NBA. What went wrong?

With incredible access to Lenny’s story as it unfolded over the past decade, filmmaking brothers Joshua and Benny Safdie follow Lenny from his run-down home in Bushwick, Brooklyn, to the New Jersey suburbs where he spent his high school career through to the present day, with the friends and family who shared in his dreams and aspirations. Lenny Cooke is a quintessentially American story about dreaming big, the fickle nature of sports celebrity and the unfulfilled destiny of a man for whom superstardom was only just out of reach.

The Maysles Cinema was founded by documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles and is directed by Jessica Green. Contact the Cinema at  (212) 537-6843. Saturday’s screening will be followed by a Q&A with directors Benny Safdie and Joshua Safdie and producer Adam Shopkorn.

“It’s A Wonderful Life”

On Saturday, December 14th at 8:00 PM,  join Clarence, George Bailey, Mary, Bert and Ernie, Old Man Potter and all the rest at the Center for the Arts of Homer for a wonderful trip back in time via the radio airwaves with “It’s A Wonderful Life, The Radio Play!”, a presentation by Scarlett Rat Entertainment. Originally broadcast in 1947 on the Lux Radio Theater, this adaptation of the Frank Capra holiday classic is a wonderful reminder that all of our lives have meaning. George Bailey, the everyman hero at the Bailey Building and Loan in Bedford Falls becomes despondent when it appears that his business and all that he has worked his whole life for may be lost.  As mean-spirited Mr. Potter says, “You’re worth more dead than alive!” In answer to his prayer, Clarence, Angel, second class, is assigned to bring the joy and meaning back to George’s life on Christmas Eve.

General admission tickets for this special Saturday night performance are $20 for Adults, $16 for Seniors, $10 for Students 18+ with Valid ID and Under 18 are Free.  Tickets can be purchased in advance through the Center’s website at www.center4art.org or by calling (607) 749-4900.

Formed in the fall of 2010, the group began to write songs and now, just a year and a half later, the band has crafted a repertoire of folk songs that are both sprawling and moody. And they bring the familiar faces of Cooperstown natives Colin Weeks, Peter Coccoma and Kenneth Root!

The Ommegang Café is open! Call 544-1800, ex. 825, for reservations.

Tickets are available at Ellsworth and Sill, Church & Scott, and The Fly Creek General Store.  Tickets are often available at the door, though concerts sometimes sell out in advance.

BRIGHT HILL LITERARY CENTER

On Sunday, November 3, from 3 – 5 pm, the Word & Image Gallery at Bright Hill Literary Center will hold an opening reception for “Two by Two”, an exhibit of artist books by Elaine Downing, Oneonta, and calligraphic works by Tara Hu, San Diego (formerly Treadwell). 

During the opening, the artists will discuss and answer questions about their work. The event is free and open to the public; and refreshments will be served.

The exhibit will remain through Saturday, November 23, when Bright Hill holds its 21st-anniversary Open House & Marathon Reading.  The Word & Image Gallery is open Mondays and Tuesdays, 9 am – 4 pm; Wednesdays, 9 am – noon; during Word Thursdays on November 14; and by appointment. The gallery is located at 94 Church Street, Treadwell, NY, one block north of Barlow’s General Store on Main St. (Rte 14).

Elaine Downing has been an artist all of her life, but making artist books only since 1991. A former librarian at SUNY Oneonta, she makes artist books and boxes, marbling paper, specialty cards, designed silk scarves, and customized scrapbooks. She studied drawing, design, printmaking, and painting at SUNY Oneonta, Women’s StudioWorkshop Workshop, and the Ink Shop in Ithaca and with such artists as Nancy Callahan, Jim Mullen, Daniel Kelm, Ed Hutchins, Dolph Smith and Carol Barton; and she studied traditional bookbinding with master binder, Fred Jordan.  Her BA in Germany is from SUNY Buffalo and her MLS is from SUNY Geneseo. Downing’s books have been chosen for juried shows at Bright Hill, the Wilber Mansion (Upper Catskill Community Council of the Arts), the Cooperstown Art Association, the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center in Auburn, as well as several exhibitions of the Guild of Book workers.

Tara Hu is an artist who was raised and trained in Taipei, Taiwan. She has lived in the US since 1995.  While she is primarily known for her Chinese calligraphy, her ceramics, and jewelry have been exhibited and sold throughout California, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and New York since 1997. Using traditional techniques, Hu brings a contemporary style to the pieces she creates, making the ancient art of Chinese calligraphy speak to the modern world. Although Hu utilizes many of the time-honored techniques of calligraphy, her favorite is derived from “Grass Style,” a method that allows her to incorporate a great deal of freedom and movement into her work. Beyond their simple elegance, the Chinese characters she paints have special spiritual resonance and are inspired by essence of the heart. Moreover, she describes the act of making her art as a form of meditation. Creating these pieces, which are both decorative and inspiring, has deep spiritual meaning to Hu.
