Progressive Gallery Tour

progocttour.jpg

The Fairfield County Progressive Gallery Tour, a program of the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, is designed to bring our creative business, cultural nonprofit and artist members together with art collectors and the public together, once a month, to discover the richness and variety of our commercial gallery members across our region. Each month we visit a different town - from Greenwich to Shelton. Join us as we continue our third season with a visit to two galleries in Stamford on Wed. Oct. 24, 2018, 6-8pm: The GR Art Gallery and the Fernando Luis ALvarez Gallery.

We start at 1086 Long Ridge Road in North Stamford (just north of the Merritt Parkway) with the GR Art Gallery, where gallery owner George Pali will introduce our guests to his gallery and the current exhibition: a continuation of the Summer Time group show of works by Adriatik Baliaj, Heidi Lewis Coleman, Elizabeth Agresta Hasegawa, Yuko Ike, Arnold Kastenbaum, and George Pali himself. Of the artists, Heidi Lewis Coleman will be speaking about her work.
We then drive to Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery, 96 Bedford Street in downtown Stamford where Mr. Alvarez will introduce his gallery and an important show by gallery artists Shelby Head:

"An Infrastructure of Silence is a collection of works that confronts institutional racism in U.S. America and the interconnections of slavery, race, poverty, wealth, and segregation in the United States. As a citizen of this democracy and an artist with shameful ancestral roots in the institutions of slavery, I have a shared responsibility to help confront the divisive and persistent effects of institutionalized racism on all Americans.

Sour Milk: Opening Reception

Sour Milk is bringing 22 artists together to utilize the latent potential of a vacant home. The house’s original purpose, to provide comfort and shelter for human inhabitants, has been subverted by its abandonment. The artists will breathe new life into the walls of the house, transforming it with their distinctive visions.

Following the exhibition the house will be permanently destroyed, leaving only a memory trace behind…

As a guest of Sour Milk you can expect to experience immersive art installations, paintings, sculptures, videos, performances, live music, food and wine.

Through the Looking Glass:Opening Reception

American installation artist Devorah Sperber and Swiss video sculptor Marck, a pairing of conceptual and technical artistry, utilize their respective mediums to draw the viewer into a wonderland of optical illusion, playful visual layering and unexpected use of space and scale. The human form takes the thematic center stage, presented in Devorah Sperber’s gargantuan, pixilated thread spool installations, and the symbolic women of Marck’s video sculptures.

Read Between the Lines: Opening Reception

Neil's life-long obsession with old books led to his discovery of them as a unique art medium. Most of the books used in his art are damaged, tattered and torn, discarded and banished to the $1 shelf or garage bin. Neil, however, sees these books as little gems. Many have covers that were created with production processes that are no longer in practice. Most carry a heavy patina from all those years passing through multiple owner’s hands. In some ways, Neil sees his art as a way to rescue these books from destruction, giving them a second life in a different context to a new audience. Conceptually, his work explores new social, cultural, and political narratives through themes of relatedness and identity. By juxtaposing the new and the old—new art from old book covers—voices across time speak to one another, thereby opening avenues toward meaning. He encourages the visitor to enter a disparate world of language, typography, and illustration styles that captures the eye and demands it to move back and forth among layers looking for signals, signs and clues. He aims for his art to culminate in a visual treatise on the recycling and renewal of popular culture. Neil lives and works in Brooklyn and The Catskill Mountains.

s.m. dyer: Opening Reception

Brooklyn based photographer, Suz Dyer, began her “Shrouded Series” in 2012 when the Brooklyn Bridge began its much needed 6 year construction project to repair and revitalize the aging iconic structure. Dyer, enamored with the tarps covering the bridge at this time, describes them as “.....something Christo could have imagined: covered, cocooned, and shrouded, the span turned into a beautiful combination of steel, stone, canvas, and human effort, glorified by an accommodating sun.”

Dyer ended up taking daily walks over the bridge and was taken by the motion of the many layers of tarps as they caught the wind at the bridges high altitude. “What the camera saw was a cacaphony of show and light, graffiti and paint, architecture and structure. I was there to catch the sun as it cast shadows, and at night, as the lights of the city illuminated the shroud.”

E Pluribus Unum: Opening Reception

  • Center for Contemporary Printmaking (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The exhibition presents work organized around the theme of our shared humanity, with prints touching on the many ways these artists have taken to representing people. The more than two dozen contemporary figurative prints featured in the show were chosen for the diversity of approaches used within the printmaking medium to convey the human figure. Among the prints on display are those by Alison Saar using found vintage handkerchiefs and cotton shop rags while Lesley Dill’s print challenges more traditional expectations of printmaking via a three-dimensional woodcut on muslin incorporating hand-dyed horse hair. In addition to these, the surface of Fab 5 Freddy’s print is embellished with silver glitter. And Swoon’s Sonia combines multiple printing methods with hand painting and collage elements.

An intention behind this exhibition is activating the gallery space by bringing gallery visitors together with the figures in the artworks on display. In juxtaposing such imaginative renderings, these works offer a visual array of alternating perspectives engaging the viewer and provoking them to reconsider their ever-changing viewpoint from one representation to the next. This space will be an open environment for anyone to come and be one among the many.
