NOYES ARTS GARAGE, ATLANTIC CITY:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University is proud to celebrate the opening of That Shadow My Likeness: Photography by Glynnis Reed, on view now through April 2. Visit the galleries to see: That Shadow My Likeness: Photography by Glynnis Reed; A Dark Wood; The Noyes Permanent Collection: Paintings by Hulda Robbins; Jicheng Yao; and The Heart of Surfing.
In the exhibition That Shadow My Likeness,on exhibit through April 2, artist Glynnis Reed presents women in harmony with and in contrast to the natural landscape. This juxtaposition highlights questions surrounding the constructs of black female beauty, femininity, and identity. Often invisible - due to their gender, race, beauty, and youth, they are in turn accepted and rejected by the “mythic norm” of American culture. “Likeness,” or persona, is a key dimension of the work whose titles are borrowed from poems by Walt Whitman.
A Panel Discussion in conjunction with the exhibition That Shadow My Likeness is planned for Sunday, March 26, 1 - 2:30 p.m. Wendel White, Distinguished Professor of Art, and Christina Jackson, Assistant Professor of Sociology, both of Stockton University; and artist Glynnis Reed will discuss issues of race, gender, and identity within the context of the natural landscape, as explored in Reed’s exhibition. The panelists will look at how two parks in the Southern California and Southern New Jersey landscapes serve as evocative settings for the protagonists in the series. The dialogue will also explore the relationship of Reed’s work to the legacy of representations of identity by African American photographers.
A Dark Wood,on exhibit now through April 23, explores the theme of being lost in the darkness of our fears, doubts and negativity. Dante Alighieri, the 14th century Italian poet, began The Divine
Comedy with a character who has lost his way in "a dark wood.” It is a metaphor not only for a crisis of faith, but a crisis of humanity. He has lost his spiritual compass, even how to be with and treat other people. His character must survey the punishments of Dante’s taxonomy of evil before he is able to find a way to even a dim light of hope. There are many aspects of the dark wood and the artists presented in this exhibition interpret the richness of the concept through a range of media and methods.
The Noyes Permanent Collection: Paintings by Hulda Robbins exhibition is on view at the Arts Garagein the A.C. Gallery now through Feb. 12. Robbins, a prolific printmaker, produced serigraphs, lithographs and woodcut prints, as well as oil paintings throughout the 1940s, 50s and the early 60s.The Jersey Shore provided many of the subjects for her large expressive oils.
The Heart of SurfingExhibition, in the Osprey Gallery at the Arts Garage, is on view through Feb. 12. Heart of Surfing is a non-profit organization that began in 2014 as a surfing program for families with autism. They quickly expanded to include pre- and post- season skateboarding. Today they offer a variety of indoor and outdoor recreation activities for special needs individuals ages 5 to 95 and their families.
