Nell Painter, Hale Woodruff, digital collage, 2015

The Lockhart Gallery is pleased to present recent and selected digital collage artworks by Nell Painter. Painter’s artwork includes abstractions of landscapes and self-portraits.  Some of the work presented here are visualizations of text-based images from the novel “Beloved”. Selections from Painter’s “Art History by Nell Painter Volume XXVII,” illustrates how the artist refashions American art history by including in the art canon collages depicting artists Palmer Hayden working in his basement studio and Hale Woodruff painting plein air in France and other African American artists and scholars. This art history includes the early African art object and artifact collecting by William Sheppard one the first African American missionaries to work in Africa in the late 19th century, spending most of his 20 years working in the Congo.  Several of Painter’s color filled abstractions were painted in 2016 at Dedham, MA and the Adirondacks, and were inspired by Robert Motherwell’s Provincetown paintings.  This exhibit is thoughtful and full of color and energy. Nell Painter is as critical a visual artist as historian and many of her works are themselves critiques of our social being. Nell Painter’s extensive resume includes exhibits and residences at important galleries and art organizations.

Architect Edgar Tafel’s Brodie Hall presented by Charles Burroughs with a reflection by Chris Mannelli

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Brodie Hall.  Brodie was designed by Edgar Tafel, a protege of Frank Loyd Wright, but reflects a distinctly different architectural philosophy.  Dr. Burroughs will discuss the under-appreciated architectural gem that Geneseo community has in Brodie.

Chris Mannelli returned to the area in 2015 as the Executive Director of GEVA Theatre Center. He’ll share his memories of Brodie, the linkages between the art program on campus and the community and how his time at Brodie prepared him to shape a successful career in the theatre and the world of the arts.

APOG is initiating a new partnership with SUNY Geneseo to offer programming of interest to both the campus and local community.
