Exhibition – Victor Davson: Luminaria @ Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery at SUNY Geneseo
Feb 21 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Exhibition Dates: January 31 through March 8, 2018

Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 31, 5-7 PM / Artist talk at 5:30 PM

The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery at SUNY Geneseo is pleased to present to the college and western NY community the exhibition Victor Davson: Luminaria—both earlier and more recent work. Davson emigrated from Georgetown, Guyana to the United States in 1973; he studied art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and is the founding director of Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art (1983–2016) in Newark, New Jersey. Included in this solo exhibit are works from several ongoing series which began in 2007 and are a response to strong memories of a Guyana folk performance in which masqueraders went from house to house on Christmas Day. These carnivalesque characters are metaphors for the resilient people of the African diaspora. Works in the exhibition include paintings on canvas, paper and also on long playing record album covers.

His new work however, is situated apart from much of the figure-based work of past years. In Luminaria the marks in paintings from the Bad Cow Comin’ series have evolved to take a leading role in surface treatment in works from his Dub Factor: Heroes series. And in Luminaria’s most recent mixed media works, glitter materials take precedent, leaving the figure aside—changing the location of the work from the earth bound and grounded, to ‘out there’ or perhaps to a deeper, ‘in there’ space. The materials used in this soup of mixed media, now reside on the surface of the paintings and appear to illuminate the picture plane.

Luminaria in its entirety is more than light, more than an allusion to galactic space. For Davson this is an evocation of loss, desire and of personal and collective history. It too is a path of evolving consciousness and renewed spirit.

Exhibitions are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery.

Exhibition: Coded Messages @ Lockhart Gallery in SUNY Geneseo McClellan House
Feb 21 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The Lockhart Gallery is pleased to announce its first exhibit of 2018 – Coded Messages by Washington, D.C. artist Joyce Wellman. Coded Messages opens Wednesday January 24 at 5 PM, and the artist will discuss her work at 5:30 in the gallery.

This exhibition is exuberant and color laden. Wellman, an abstract artist uses various material and mediums to create paintings and prints. This exhibit hosts two bodies of work Hidden Hands and Number Works. Adrian Childs writes “these paintings map the world through codes, symbols, signs, and abstract forms informed by the memory of [Joyce’s] mother’s passion for numbers and her philosophical views of humanity.” What is important to Wellman is ‘creating a poetic and meaningful art practice’ that is accessible to a variety of audiences. In these paintings and drawings there is the implication of narrative and storytelling that engages the viewer suggesting the natural and supernatural that is available through Joyce Wellman’s visual art practice.

All exhibits are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery. For more information contact Lori Houtz at 585-245-5841 or Cynthia Hawkins at 585-245-5813.
