Hofstra's Rosenberg Gallery Presents "Color-Time-Space"
Opening Reception at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, February 17; Show Runs Through March 17
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY … Hofstra University’s Rosenberg Gallery at Calkins Hall presents the exhibition Color-Time-Space, curated by Joanne Freeman and Kim Uchiyama, through March 17, 2010. The show features the works of 13 painters, including, James Biederman, Laurie Fendrich, Joanne Freeman, Julie Gross, Ben La Rocco, Gary Petersen, Kazimira Rachfal, Jennifer Riley, Yvonne Thomas, Kim Uchiyama, Stephen Westfall, Thornton Willis and Kevin Wixted.
According to a statement by the curators, the artists participating in Color-Time-Space use color selectively to build intuitively rhythmic, and distinctly diverse color relationships in their creation of the painting space. That space is defined by grids, both actual and implied, and by the repetition of specific color elements. The paradoxical relationship of the intuitive and the measured gives these painters’ works a variety of contradictory attributes.
This exhibition previously ran at the Janet Kurnatowski Gallery in Brooklyn. Kurnatowski is a Hofstra graduate.
Admission to the Hofstra show is free. For more information, including viewing hours, please call Hofstra’s Department of Fine Arts at (516) 463-5474.
