Jerome Kaplan (1920-1997) was a respected Philadelphia artist who contributed to the recognition of printmaking as a fine art turning out many monotypes, lithographs and automatic drawings. The drawings were his most expressionistic works, as he was free from the constraints of printing technologies. Kaplan received a Guggenheim Fellowship for his exceptional creative ability. His work can be found in museums both nationally and internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the British Museum.

Benton Murdoch Spruance (1904-1967) was one of the most influential and prolific color lithographers in the history of twentieth-century modernism. His advances in color lithography revived a near-dead medium that had not flourished since the turn of the century. His body of work primarily consists of lithographs of social, religious and mythological subjects.  Spruance's artistic expression focused on individuals struggling with enduring moral dilemmas and the metaphysical meaning of life. He was the recipient of a long list of awards and fellowships including two Cresson Scholarships to travel in Europe and two Guggenheim grants.

 Hulda D. Robbins (1910-2011) was inspired by Kathe Kollwitz, a German artist whose work captured a harsh account of the human condition in the early 20th century. Robbins became a prolific printmaker producing series of serigraphs, lithographs and woodcut prints throughout the 1940s, 50s and the early 60s. The Jersey shore was the home of Robbins’ family where she would often visit, and in 1963 she moved there to live. New Jersey provided many subjects that she would later capture in her large expressive oils.

ALAN WILLOUGHBY

  • July 13 - September 23, 2018
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, July 13, 6 - 8 pm
  • Education Guide

Alan Willoughby retired in 2016 as the Executive Director of the Perkins Center for the Arts in Moorestown and  Collingswood, New Jersey), and has since returned to the studio full time. He is branding himself as a re-emerging ceramic artist and educator. Willoughby’s work plays within the worlds of function and sculptural form. It includes wheel-thrown and hand-built components, working with both additive and subtractive processes.   Surfaces are multi-layered and include embellishment in the wet clay, painting and wax-resist on greenware, and slip trailing and glazing on bisque ware. 

When I work in clay, when I work with the primal elements of earth, air, water, and fire, there is a connection to something deeper and stronger, more primal.  On days when I enter my studio, I leave behind the violence, the pollution, the global warming, and the consumption propagated by our modern-day icons and begin a quest to understand the deeper meanings in life, the connections to all things. - A. Willoughby

 

Willoughby has an MFA in Ceramics from Clemson University, and was awarded two Artists Fellowships by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. His work and writing has been featured in Ceramics Monthly, Ceramics Art & Perception, Ceramics Technical and Studio Potter.  His work has been shown in galleries around the country and is in many public and private collections.

ZODIAC: IDENTITY AND INTERPRETATION

In her newest body of sculptural work, Donna Dodson has created two parallel series, referencing both the animal characters associated with the Chinese, or eastern, zodiac as well as the sun signs of the western zodiac. Dodson’s exhibition offers us a menagerie of compelling creatures carved in wood.

Based on birth years from the centuries past to the present day, the Chinese zodiac assigns an animal to each year in a repeating twelve-year cycle. Each of the twelve animal characters is believed to possess distinct attributes. With roots in ancient Egypt and Greece, the western zodiac is based on astrological constellations corresponding to the position of the sun at birth. Over time, each of these constellations has assumed their own unique mythological identity. Curiously, the zodiac has only rarely been the subject of contemporary art.

Carving has taken a new direction in Dodson’s work, and technical surprises and breakthroughs abound. Due to a windfall of wood, she has been able to experiment, creating sculpture in woods such as mulberry, apple, spalted maple, and cherry. The anthropomorphic deities in Dodson’s signature work have morphed into allegories, icons and symbols in which realism and representation play a greater role.

While some interpretations of the Western zodiac characters seem obvious, like Leo the lion, Taurus the bull, and Aries the ram, others resist obvious characterizations. Would anyone associate Aquarius with a beaver, Libra with a falcon, or Virgo with a penguin? In Zodiac, Dodson takes on these peculiar associations and promises to engage the imagination of the casual viewer as well as that of the art connoisseur.

ANDREA SAUCHELLI: BIOLOGICS

  • July 12 - September 3, 2018
  • Opening Reception: Friday, July 20, 6 - 8 pm
  • Artist's Website

Andrea Sauchelli is best known for her colorful yet mysterious and intricate oil paintings, which reference the complex inner workings of modern day (biologics) medicine and the human body on a cellular level. Organic shapes involving a multitude of colorful twists and turns that lead your eye throughout the painting evoke a feeling of being at the forefront of reconstruction. Sauchelli states, “I am interested in the effects of modern medicine on the body whether positive or negative, balanced or unbalanced.”

Andrea Sauchelli received a BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. Some of her exhibitions include The Center of Emerging Visual Artists in Philadelphia, PA; The Noyes Arts Garage in Atlantic City, NJ; The Monmouth Museum in Monmouth, NJ; Birdland Gallery in Beach Haven, NJ; The Art House, Manahawkin, NJ; The Cooperstown Art Association in Cooperstown, NY; and The Long Beach Island Arts Foundation, LBI, NJ. Sauchelli’s paintings are in the permanent collection of AtlantiCare, on view in the public spaces of their healthcare facilities. Sauchelli lives and works in Manahawkin, NJ.

A.J. RUDISILL: THE NATIONAL PARKS

  #186 Cathedral Spires Trail Head

#186 Cathedral Spires Trail Head

Because of his continuing fascination with America’s national parks, artist Anthony J. Rudisill has devoted the last six of his 82 years creating more than 38 national parks landscapes and seascapes, celebrating the best of America’s natural resources. The National Parks series was created to honor the National Parks Service’s 100th Anniversary in 2016. The idea of creating the series grew out of his travels across the United States with the sole purpose of seeing firsthand America’s natural treasures.

These profoundly researched and realized works are more than just realistic depictions; they capture the spirit, the very soul of these unique American treasures. That he produces such authentic, meticulous renderings, full of love and poetic beauty, in an era of short attention spans and instant gratification seems very much like a miracle. - William Neal McPheeters, Adjunct Faculty - Visual Arts, Stockton University

Rudisill, a native of Philadelphia, is self-taught. He was inspired by John James Audubon, and when he was a young boy, he began creating field sketches of birds. “I was always interested in nature, wildlife and birds especially and I enjoyed trying to draw them. Receiving Audubon’s book as a gift at a young age encouraged me to go further.” When he was a teenager, his family moved to the New Jersey shore where he was greatly influenced by the surrounding coastal marshes. He began portraying the abundant wildlife in the area and, over the years, his subject matter expanded to include landscapes, seascapes, and birds.

Anthony Rudisill’s artwork has been featured in numerous exhibitions in museums and galleries, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.; the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art in Salisbury, Maryland; the Ella Sharp Museum in Jackson, Michigan; and the Newman Galleries in Philadelphia.

HARLEY JARRETT: BETWEEN THE NATURAL AND THE ABSTRACT

Harley Jarrett is a painter and art handler who grew up in Northfield and lives in Egg Harbor Township, NJ. They earned their Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting in May of 2018 from Stockton University. After graduating, they began working there part time under Visual Arts faculty and in the Art Gallery. Besides making paintings, drawings, and photographs, they also find pleasure in singing, playing bass guitar, and hoop dancing.

Jarrett enjoys making landscapes that have some element of the “unreal”, abstract, or psychedelic. Those landscapes are not literal; they are psychological. While some abstract marks are additions to the paintings that were not observed directly, Jarrett still wants to emphasize that natural patterns and man-made ones are not mutually exclusive – because they find themselves mirroring them too often during the mark-making process

Nature and abstraction are not mutually exclusive. Yes, the geometric and organic patterns and color we see in nature have a purpose, whether it is to attract pollinators or consumers to spread seeds. But often during the process of making abstract marks, I see parallels between intuitive line and shape patterns and the naturally occurring geometry of earth. - Harley Jarrett

SHIFTING MOMENTUM: WORKS FROM THE NOYES PERMANENT COLLECTION

  • July 19 - December 1, 2018
  • Education Guide

This exhibition of works from our permanent collection acted as a compelling sister exhibition to the previous Shifting Momentum exhibition which was on view at The Noyes Museum Galleries at Kramer Hall, and is now back for those who may have missed it at our Seaview gallery! 

Shifting Momentum at Kramer Hall presented the development of abstract art in Taiwan, from the eighties to today. Influenced by Western modernism, the artists in Shifting Momentum addressed Eastern culture, philosophy, and tradition on subjects like ch’i (energy flow), ink calligraphy, huxi (breathing, or to breathe), and traditional window frames. The artists' works reflect the liberal and slowly-opened state of Taiwanese society after the lifting of 38 years of martial law (1949-1987) in juxtaposition to the digitized hyper-accelerated life of today. Shifting Momentum celebrated Asian art and encouraged viewers to have a physical, prolonged encounter with works that are culturally rooted in the East. It is through close examination of these techniques and expressions that one may gradually discover a range of interpretations of the self and the core of existence.

This selection of works from the Noyes' permanent collection creates visual and conceptual links to the works from the Taiwanese artists featured at Kramer Hall's exhibition, bridging the gaps between Eastern and Western art, culture, and abstraction.
