FRED WINSLOW NOYES, JR.: PAINTINGS 

Noyes Museum Gallery II, Hammonton

  • Exhibition dates: May 18 - August 22, 2017

  • Education Guide

Fred Winslow Noyes, Jr.: b. 4.19.1905 – d. 6.2.1987 

Artist and ardent collector of art, antiques and folk art, Fred Noyes was born in Philadelphia in 1905. As a young man, he attended the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. At the invitation of Albert Barnes, Fred began studying at the Barnes Foundation. The Barnes allowed Fred to develop perception and art theory skills, which he later applied to his compositions. Noyes’ early works of the mid-1930s consist largely of landscapes and still lifes, serene, yet moody, and reminiscent of the works of Daniel Garber, a contemporary figure among Pennsylvania Impressionists. 

Following a move to New Jersey in 1933, Noyes seemed to be inspired by Paul Cezanne’s analytical flat planes, as well as the bright primitive color and passionate brush strokes employed by Fauvist artists Andre Derain and Henri Matisse. In the early ‘70s Fred’s artistic style changed dramatically. His new abstract works were vivacious, rhythmic and colorful, conveying the joy of life, evocative of the work of Spanish artist Joan Miro. Filled with lush color and whimsical forms, these paintings were singularly Fred Noyes and uniquely southern New Jersey.

Today, Noyes' art continues to inspire and his folk art and decoy collection enhances the public’s appreciation of New Jersey’s artistry.

KINDRED SPIRITS: FINEBERG AND WEISS

  • 07.07.17 - 10.01.17  
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, July 14, 6 - 8pm

Education Guide

Weiss Fish.jpg

The Noyes Museum presents the work of two local artists, both of whom spent their lives and careers enriching the art scene of southern New Jersey. Born and educated in Philadelphia prior to relocating to the Jersey Shore later in their lives, Mili Dunn Weiss and Bernard Fineberg shared common goals. Bringing enthusiasm and the desire to nurture the arts in their communities, they exemplify the spirit of art and culture in southern New Jersey.

Fineberg’s experience was diverse, having taught art history, drawing, painting, collage, papier-mâché, and textile design. As an artist and intellectual, his approach to art-making tended to be organized conceptually. As he traveled, he carried a sketchbook with him, most often working en plein-air to create his signature watercolor landscapes.

A Philadelphia native, Mili Dunn Weiss attended the Tyler School of Art and Boston University prior to post-graduate work at the Boston Museum School. Her lifelong success in the arts was foreshadowed at this point by various accolades, including the Dean’s Award for Painting from Tyler, as well as being honored as a Tyler Fellow. 

My work always begins with an intense visual experience. Nature, with its infinite variety of colors, forms, patterns, and rhythms, is often the original stimulus. Then begins a long process, which evolves into a picture idea. I strive to achieve a sense of internal order, and yet, within that order, tension is an important factor.

 — Mili Dunn Weiss

MINGLED MEDIUMS: CHRISTINA MASSEY

  •  07.07.17 - 10.01.17  
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, July 14, 6 - 8pm

Education Guide

Christina Massey’s work explores the boundaries of both painting and sculpture. Her work is highly intuitive, reacting to the materials and building upon them as it evolves. Artists such as John Chamberlain, Susan Bengali, El Anatsui and Lee Bontecou have influenced her work. There is a sensitivity to materials, form and process with an inspiration from textiles and re-purposed products. Her colorful, abstract, textural artworks blend and blur the lines between sculpture and painting.

Massey's process involves constant deconstruction and reconstruction. She will cut and tear pieces of the canvases apart, removing them from their stretcher bars and reusing parts of one to begin another. Some of the canvases have been re-purposed many times over. In this way, her body of work is a conversation with itself - a visual dialogue chronicling her creative endeavors. 

"I’ll combine new canvas and other elements as needed for the current work, sometimes leaving the surface of the old painting as it once was, sometimes adding more paint on top of it, but still leaving it identifiable as the previous artwork. It’s a process of constantly constructing and deconstructing, always building upon the old for the new." - Christina Massey

Victorious Phoenix

Victorious Phoenix

  • 07.07.17 - 08.27.17  
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, July 14, 6 - 8pm

Maria Yony Lopez Marulanda's identity as an intensely social being fuels her work, as she strives to understand the experiences of mankind. Marulanda's desire to uncover the varied motivations of Man is present throughout this series, which seeks to comprehend our tendencies towards chaos and self-destruction. Through the process of creating these pieces, she meticulously examines our inability to learn from our mistakes, resulting in irreversible consequences affecting all living beings, as well as the Earth we inhabit.

.....we should ask ourselves about all of our achievements, throughout human history, of which we are responsible for having inflicted so much pain and destruction, in an inhuman way upon our only Home which is Earth and to our fellow beings; we are God's greatest creation, and as superior beings of nature, we should comport ourselves as such.  - Maria Yony Lopez Marulanda

Despite this troubling propensity towards barbarism and recklessness, Marulanda asserts that bold, united action, could halt this destruction once and for all. If we choose not to act in a way worthy of our status as "superior" beings, she wonders, "...would God hesitate to annihilate the maelstorm which his own children have caused?" With the willingness to cleanse the universe of iniquity, she theorizes, comes the willingness to remove all traces of us from the Earth we are so intent on destroying.

TRANSFORM: WORKS BY ELLEN HANAUER

There are times in our lives when the floor drops unexpectedly from under out feet and propels us on a dark journey. This human condition of loss often feels surreal and affects each of us in profound and unexpected ways. This is a painful process, as we descend into denial, anger, negotiation and despair. We find ourselves adrift, our compasses malfunction, and we are left disoriented and despondent. Finally, there is acquiescence, the inflection point where healing commences. 

This exhibition is an emotional recollection of my own transformation, which has taken me from the abyss to a place where potential is limitless. I have chosen to use fiber as my medium ,as it brings an unthreatening quality to this provocative and sometimes uncomfortable subject. Emerging from the darkness has helped me to see the possibilities that can only be discovered through the path of deconstruction and reconstruction.

MICHAEL V. PASCUCCI: SCULPTURE

  • Exhibition dates: May 4 - July 2, 2017
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, May 12, 6 - 8 pm
  • Education Guide

Michael Pascucci works in a figurative abstract style that emphasizes visual metaphors relating to the human condition. He believes that his sculptures are essentially romantic because they metaphorically connect to core feelings and thus enhance an awareness of self.

There are times Art triggers our imagination and becomes a means for transcendental feelings about our universal connectedness. As a sculptor, I am inspired by the wonder and awe of how shapes and forms are assembled and integrated into the incredible well-structured and beautiful designs that we find in Nature. I endeavor to create objects that are beautiful and that appeal to our innate sense of beauty. Ultimately, we learn or feel from the works that there is more about being human than meets the eye.

MEMORIES LEFT IN OUR HANDS: CASEY CUFF

  • Opening Reception: First Friday, June 9, 6 - 8pm
  • Education Guide

As a participant on the Stockton Study Tour to the Netherlands and France in March 2017, Casey had the unique opportunity to travel with three survivors who were hidden children during the Holocaust. She traced the life stories of these survivors by visiting cities and locations that played a critical role in their survival. For some, their story had been shared many times with students of the Holocaust and genocide. For others, this was the first time they exposed themselves to the emotion of returning to what they once called home. Her photography tells their stories and provides testament to their resilience and strength.

Cuff was selected by the Stockton Board of Trustees Fellowship for the Distinguished Students program. This initiative, established in 1986, supports student-led projects of undergraduate research or creative work in keeping with the educational philosophy and mission of Stockton University. Cuff used this opportunity to create Memories Left in our Hands, in an effort to capture the raw emotion of what it means to confront the realities of one’s past. With her project, she aims to examine the ways that human beings are capable of treating one another after establishing them as the “other”. Her Fellowship work is a testament not only to the amazing resiliency of human beings faced with unimaginable horrors, but also to the dark past we must continue to recollect and progress from.

"As our community of living Holocaust survivors is rapidly fading away, it has become increasingly important for us to continue their stories. In Western Europe, Maud Dahme, Leo Ullman, and Dan Kochavi left their memories of the Holocaust in my hands. Through these photographs, I leave them in yours."

Osprey Gallery, Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, A.C

  • Exhibition dates: April 6 - April 29, 2017
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, April 14, 6 - 8 pm

Jacob Wolos is an artist obsessed with the impossible task of instilling motion into static media. Coming from a background in both musical composition and sculpture, his current body of work explores human gesture and our interaction with materials as the primary focus of his compositions.

Wolos' work is performative in nature, using the gallery space as an "open studio". He experiments with fabric dipped in plaster as a record of his movement and influence on the fabric. When it dries, it keeps its shape and defies gravity. He then drips dyes and ink, later bringing in dancers to choreograph a performance with the pieces.

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 exhibition interpret the richness of the concept through a range of mediums and methods.

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

    

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   http://www.glynnisreed.com/

  • PANEL DISCUSSION: Sunday, March 26, 1:00 - 2:30pm

The public is invited to a panel discussion with Wendel White, Distinguished Professor of Art, Stockton University; Christina Jackson, PhD, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Stockton University; and Glynnis Reed, exhibiting photographer (That Shadow My Likeness: Photography by Glynnis Reed,) to extend the conversation around the exhibition and engage the public with concepts of the work and how it relates to the tradition of black fine art photography. Reed is interested in a variety of themes including the representation of black female bodies, particularly in relation to natural landscapes, identity and place. The panel will be followed by a Q & A session. This event is free and open to the public.

GRAND VISTA: 21st CENTURY LANDSCAPES

Noyes Gallery II, Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, A.C

  • Exhibition dates: August 5 - October 30, 2016
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, August 12, 6 - 8 pm
  • Education Guide

Grand Vista highlights 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, the artwork investigates landscape painting as an enduring theme in genre painting as it enters the twenty-first century. 

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.

Advancements in digital imaging techniques have afforded me the tools and freedom to explore new directions in my artistic presentations. Sharing my vision and interpretation of a subject has always been a pleasure for me. Using archival inks, conservation grade papers, and matting, I present each image to be enjoyed for many years. Whether it is a realistic image or a hyper-realistic interpretation, my goal is to cause the viewer to stop, if only for a moment, to reflect or have an emotional response. If I can achieve that, I will be content in having realized my goal. - David Woeller

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

Attilio Sinagra Education Guide

Attilio Sinagra

Attilio Sinagra

Born and raised in Atlantic City, esteemed international painter Attilio Sinagra used his technically accomplished style to explore the effects of commercial development on the community of Atlantic City. Sinagra was born to Italian immigrant parents in Atlantic City in 1916. After developing his style abroad, he returned to his hometown to paint a city barely recognizable as the same one he left. His meticulous realism went hand in hand with his reverence for architecture, generating dynamic compositions that evoke a city in the throes of change.
