Studio 26 Gallery is pleased to host a two week group show curated by Marilyn Stevenson. This exhibition: "Memory, Mood & Moment" will be up from April 29 – May 10, 2015 with an opening reception on Friday, May 1, 2015 from 6-9 PM. Exhibiting artists are Danielle Epstein, Joyce Korotkin, and Susan Zises.
“Unifying the works of three stylistically disparate artists, this exhibition's common thread is the captured moment; that which informs memory, originates in mood, and is intrinsically connected to the passage of time and its inherent losses.
Joyce Korotkin’s encaustic landscapes attempt to capture the poetic moments, infused with shimmering, incandescent light, that distill into the essence of memory but are entirely born from imagination. Danielle Epstein literally portrays the transition from moment to memory with her layered images - themselves passages, each one successively portraying a vanishing moment, as if marching through time - encapsulated within a transparent vitrine that affords but a final glimpse of the delicacy of life. What remains are a series of memories that fade in and out of view with the passage of time. While Korotkin and Epstein dabble in the inevitable mythmaking of memory, Susan Zises works on paper entitled “Loss” has an opposing effect of softness and sharpness that is both painterly and printerly. Zises focuses an intense lens on the nature of loss with her somber patterns, each one endlessly repeating until they eventually accumulate into a shield from which one can move on.”
Jay Friedenberg is author of Aphorisms From A to Z: A User’s Guide to Life, published in 2012. This book has received many favorable reviews and was endorsed by Michael Dirda, 1993 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism, an avid aphorism reader himself. Jay will give a short PowerPoint presentation on what aphorisms are and why they are important, followed by readings from his book. There will then be several participatory group exercises where the audience will get a chance to compose aphorisms of their own. We will vote on the best group aphorism and the winner will receive a free signed copy of Jay's book.
Short Form Literature Series curated by Jay Friedenberg features prose and verse of limited verbiage. This genre seeks to establish new intellectual and artistic standards in a short literary format. Small words pack punch. This series consists of explanations and readings of haiku, aphorisms and rhyme poems along with linked images and dance. Curator, photographer and poet Jay Freidenberg presents us the history and expression of these forms, appropriate to this age of terse communication.
