100 Hours in the Woodshed IV
Jan 24, 5-7 p.m.
Reception: Jan 29, 5-7 p.m.
"100 hours in the Woodshed" returns to MCLA Gallery 51! Masterminded by collage artist Daniel O'Connor, the fourth edition of this unique biennial event begins January 24, 2013 with a "Meet the Artists" reception from 5 to 7 pm. at MCLA Gallery 51. During the five days that follow, the galleries will be a flurry of collage of every sort: from paper and glue, to film and sound, if it can be cut apart, appropriated, moved around, and pieced together into a new form, it's bound to be happening in the "woodshed". Visitors are encouraged to stop by and watch the work in progress from 10am-6pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
OTHER HUDSON Chapter One
Jen P. Harris, Jack Millard, John Cooley, Claudia McNulty
March 28-April 21, 2013
Opening Reception March 28 5-7pm
MCLA Gallery 51 is excited to present the work of four artists from the New York Hudson Valley: Jen P. Harris, Jack Millard, John Cooley and Claudia McNulty. Viewers will be intrigued by this dynamic selection of work made by artists who live and work within a twenty mile radius of the legendary Hudson River. From the brightly colored iconic prints of Jen P. Harris, to the rustic assemblages of John Cooley, Other Hudson will offer a psycho-geographic glimpse into the mysteries of this historic region and the artists who live there. The show includes a series of large illustrative paintings by Claudia McNulty, who raises questions about DNA, ecology and Genetic Modification, juxtaposed with large abstract painterly forms created by Jack Millard. The thread unifying this work is the region wherein it was made, an area known for it's richness in the arts of past and present. [more info]
