Michael Malpass Retrospective

Exhibition extended thorough August 18. Michael Malpass’s (1946-1991) artistic legacy consists of sculpture, drawings , collage, paintings, and assemblages.

He described his sculpture, overall, as "a blend of artistry, collage, craftsmanship and movement," terms that could be applied to his work in other media, as well. His vast, stimulating and powerful body of work has established him as one of the most respected sculptors of the 20th century.

Drones are in the news.

Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Karina Aguilera Skvirsky's Drones, is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design.
