THE SKY IS FALLING!
Much has been made over the approach of “the end of the calendar”, set to take place on December 21, 2012, at least from a Mayan perspective. We cannot accurately predict what’s going to happen, if anything at all, until that date finally arrives. Will we ease into a new 26,000 year celestial cycle effortlessly? Or, will chaos, doomsday, and end of time predictions actually be realized? If we survive the arrival of 12-21-12, will consciousness change, as a result of being thrust into a new era? Will Nostradamus’s predictions come true, for a cosmic collision of catastrophic proportions? Is there any hope or future left?

THE SKY IS FALLING! aims to explore hypothetical answers and commentary, serving as a cauldron, from the blasphemous to the reassuring, as we approach 12-21-12. Curated by Alan Baer.

The artists in the exhibition are: Curt Belshe and Lise Prown; Gianluca Bianchino; Pam Butler; Jason Christopher and Michael Wyshock; Sarawut Chutiwongpeti; James Duesing, Jessica Hodgins, Bum Lee, Moshe Mahler, Jay Oberski, Sang II Park, and David Tinapple; Jeanne Englert and David Arner; Georgie Grace; Dave Hebb; Jim Holl; Heather Hutchison; Benjamin Keddy; Virginia Lavado and Camilo Rojas; Michelle Levante; Neil Ira Needleman; Ken Nintzel; Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company, Ellen Sinopoli, William Harper, Kim Vanyo, Jason Sinopoli, Calvin Grimm and Fine Line Multimedia; Keiko Sono; Travis LeRoy Southworth; Paul G.

THREE POINTS DETERMINE A CIRCLE: LUCAS BLALOCK / JAMES HYDE / FABIENNE LASSERRE
In this show a photographer — Lucas Blalock; a painter — James Hyde; and sculptor — Fabienne Lasserre will present works, which contain circular forms and/or fragments. Rather than symbol, ideal or icon, these artists employ the circle in practical and practised ways. Within each of the individual works, arcs and/or circles interrupt the regularized formats (of photography, painting and sculpture) to embrace exchanges of meanings much as we all do within a circle of friends. Curated by James Hyde.

Exhibition Dates: August 17 – October 7, 2012, with the Opening Reception on Saturday, August 18, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Location: BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY

NYFA MARK 11
Curated by Mark Thomas Kanter.

An exhibition of 29 pre-selected artists from disparate disciplines, presents an intrinsic problem to the curator: how to find coherence amongst widely differing work? In the case of this group exhibition from the artist-participants in the New York Foundation for The Arts’ “MARK 2011-Woodstock” program, a show which includes Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking, Photography, Video and Installation, it was easy. What ties these distinctive artists together is the remarkably deep involvement each clearly has with their own artistic process, and the high level of discovery each has made through an intrepid exploration of their particular medium.

The artists in the exhibition are: Jane Bloodgood-Abrams, Jean Campbell, Amy Cheng, Anna Cinquemani, Karen Davis, Tom DeLooza, Thorsten Dennerline, Ray Felix, Michael Forster Rothbart, Yoram Gelman, Shanti Grumbine, Mark Thomas Kanter, Polly Law, Carmen Lizardo, Sarah Anderson Lock, Brian Lynch, Nathan Meltz, Kelly Merchant, Steven Millar, Gilbert Plantinga, Stephen Reynolds, Aide Russell, Anne Seelbach, Barbara Smith, Keiko Sono, Lindsay Stern, Linda Stillman, Suzy Sureck, Alex Young.

Exhibition Dates: March 30 – April 29, 2012, with the Opening Reception on Saturday, March 31, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Location: BYRDCLIFFE Kleinert/James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY 
Gallery Hours: Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 12:00 – 6:00 pm
