That Shadow My Likeness: Photography by Glynnis Reed

January 12 - April 2, 2017

Noyes Gallery II

Free Opening Reception: Second Friday, January 13, 6:00 - 8:00pm

Panel Discussion: Sunday, March 26, 1:00 - 2:30pm

In the photo series, "That Shadow My Likeness," I present my subjects, Alexandria and Melissa, in harmony with and in contrast to the natural landscapes surrounding them.  From dappled light to iconic palm trees, rivers and verdant terrain, the characteristics of the scenes underscore the meaning of the figures in each piece. Through diptychs, triptychs, groupings of five images and a selection of single images, I compose a non-linear narrative that forms constructs of black female beauty, femininity, and identity. In the juxtaposition of the images of these two women and their environments, I create a third space that suggests my own subjectivity as a black female artist, in between these constructs of identity and place. I borrowed the titles of the series and individual artworks from poems by Walt Whitman. I use these titles to emphasize the poeticism of the work and to suggest how my "likeness," my persona, is a key dimension of the form and content of the work.  -- Glynnis Reed

A Dark Wood

January 13 - April 23, 2017

Noyes Gallery I

Free Opening Reception: Second Friday, February 10, 6:00 - 8:00pm

Midway this life we're bound upon,

I woke to find myself in a dark wood,

where the right road was wholly lost and gone-

Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

A Dark Wood 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. There are many aspects of the dark wood and the artists presented in this exhoibition interpret the richness of the concept through a range of medi and methods.One of the most accessible and familiar art mediums, paper is presented in its more experimental forms. With an emphasis on sculptural drawings, this exhibition showcases works with three-dimensional aspects such as raised designs, embossed images and cast paper pulp. Artists test the delicacy of paper by piercing, ripping, perforating, embossing, dyeing or casting paper pulp to build up the surface.

Lou Storey Education Guide

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.
