Street's Third Annual Juried Group Show: Reflection.
Reflection is an essential process of light and surfaces. It is
also the process of self-recognition. Narcissus, the first
narcissist, looked into a pool and fell in love with his own image,
which he took to be another. We still have pools, and we
also have mirrors and phones and other pools of light we stare
into, and we're not any better at recognizing
ourselves. We think that these shows are projections from out
there, but it's we who are projecting: all the fearful things we perceive, and also all the beauty.
Like ripples in water, all technology has its own bent. Reflected
images are altered by the surface, refracted and reversed, familiar and
opposite at the same time. We know ourselves by mirror images. With art, we explore the medium that allows us to
project ourselves onto paper or canvas or a photographic print.
This is craft, the skill that allows us to flow with the
material, that lets spirit be expressed in form. Art
work gives us this awareness, and allows us to share.
Reflection is the theme of Front Street Gallery's third annual juried
group show. The exhibition includes painting, drawing, photography and sculpture and is opening Sunday, October 19 from
10am-2pm with good food next door at the Front Street Cafe.
The gallery is also part of the ArtEast Dutchess Open Studio Tour, some
40 artists in studios and galleries throughout Dutchess County open to
the public for the weekends of Oct. 18-19 and Oct. 25-26.
(Details at arteastdutchess.com.) "Reflection" runs through
the end of November.
