NOYES ARTS GARAGE OF STOCKTON UNIVERSITY

Grand Vista: 21st Century Landscapes

August 5 - October 30, 2016

This exhibition will highlight recent work by Wes Sherman, Gary Stephan, Ilse Murdock, Judy Simonian and Aaron Williams. Guest-curated by native New Jersey artists Danielle Wolfrum and Wes Sherman, these artworks will investigate landscape painting as an enduring theme in genre painting as it enters the twenty-first century. The work will be on view to the public August 5 – October 30, 2016 in the Noyes-Stockton Gallery at the Noyes Arts Garage.

The five artists in this exhibition approach the subject with distinct perspectives. Aaron Williams manipulates mass reproductions of iconic natural features, negotiating and reshaping the relationship the viewer holds with these famous places. Gary Stephan’s geometrically precise brushstrokes belie the organic inspiration behind his paintings, redesigning the landscape along a more industrial bent. Judy Simonian uses landscape as a vehicle for expression, carrying on themes of disorientation and hope from her larger body of work. Conversely, Ilse Murdock paints within nature in order to directly situate herself and her audience as part and parcel of the larger natural world, and to indelibly tie the preservation of nature to her own artistic process. Lastly, artist and curator of the exhibition Wes Sherman’s works adhere the closest to the landscape genre, with impressionistic directionality to guide the viewer along the same paths Sherman traveled when he took in the vista himself.

Hak Vogrin: A Retrospective

August 5 - October 30, 2016

Hak Vogrin: A Retrospective features the work of Hak Vogrin, a largely self-taught painter linked to both outsider art and twentieth-century mainstream art. This exhibition tracks the evolution of Vogrin’s work, showing delicate, thoughtful drawings, ironic cartoons, as well as expressive paintings condemning the ills of American society. Vogrin’s work critiques issues such as national hypocrisy, consumerism, environmental issues, and the mistreatment of women and minorities. Despite his death in 2009, Vogrin remains an active critical voice of reason responding to persisting contemporary problems through his artwork.

September 9, 2016 - January 1, 2017

This collection of paintings was completed over a ten year period and explores the concepts,  theories and feelings that surround Lou Storey in his work as a psychotherapist and as a social worker. 

I have always used the making of art as a kind of personal journal, a way to reflect upon all the various components of the life I am living. For the maker of art as well as the viewer, art can provide a moment of self-reflection, can provoke a memory, can inspire a myriad of emotions, and can bring a sense of joy and wonder. - Lou Storey

On view at the AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center on the Atlantic City Campus at 1925 Pacific Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ 08401.  The Noyes exhibition is free and open daily to the public.
