(re)collecting, (re)constructing: Scott Pellnat and Allen C. Topolski

September 9 – October 30, 2013
Scott Pellnat and Allen C. Topolski

Scott Pellnat and Allen C. Topolski both accepted the invitation to create new work for the Stedman Gallery; this exhibition presents two sculptors who transform found materials and objects in magically illusory ways. Scott Pellnat’s installation of a flying squadron and Allen Topolski’s domestic appliances intrigue the viewer, who might wonder what the original material or source could have been and what the function of the new object is, all the while recognizing the familiar aspects of these artworks. The viewer is drawn into examining these objects through this recognition, attempting to decipher the illusions that these artists have insinuated in their creations.

From Here to There: Parallel Trajectories

March 13 – April 24, 2013

The painter Margery Amdur, the soprano and recording artist Julianne Baird, the theater artist Paul Bernstein, the graphic designer Allan Espiritu, and the art historian Martin Rosenberg have co-curated an exhibition around the theme of ‘work in progress’—translated into the title of the exhibition from here to there, parallel trajectories— each participant selecting existing artwork or creating new work, from her or his respective disciplinary point of view. The exhibition is interdisciplinary in nature, from painting to performance to ipads; and will challenge the viewer to create links between diverse works of art that explore the idea of work in progress in this exhibition and presented in the accompanying series of public programming.
