All Day
The book is a vital means through which cultures sustain memory, disseminate knowledge, and perpetuate ideas. Books of Life: Resilience and the Written Word from 1933 to Today draws on materials from the Kiev Judaica rare book collection and the Corcoran Artists’ Books collection to explore both the book’s resilience in the face of persecution and its potential to give voice to the range of human experience. This new exhibit on Gelman's 7th floor is a collaboration between the GW Libraries and the Corcoran School of the Arts + Design’s graduate student collective, DesignCorps.
The George Washington University’s Luther W. Brady Art Gallery will showcase paintings, small ceramic objects and works on paper by Glenn Goldberg—a prolific Brooklyn-based painter—in its exhibition “Of Leaves and Clouds.” The exhibition focuses on the artist’s intimate relationship with nature, a theme present throughout Goldberg’s decades-long career. It features his most recent paintings completed within his Brooklyn studio. The works in the exhibit have a common feature: his ever-present dots over light washes of color creating multiple layers within each composition. Goldberg’s signature marks not only structure the space, but also are a record of Goldberg’s concentrated attention, time and devotion. His work ethic is apparent in the extraordinary details of layered textures he achieves. This, in addition to their intricacy and layers of meaning, makes Goldberg’s work appeal to many. Looking at a signature work such as Forever (2016, detail, above right), one finds elements such as birds, flower forms and leaves, all delineated using dots and stencils that even reference Australian aboriginal painting. Well-versed in European and American art from his studies at the New York Studio School and Queens College, Glenn Goldberg also draws inspiration from African and Asian art, textiles and decorative art. His works are in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO. Goldberg’s recent solo exhibitions include shows at the Jason McCoy Gallery in New York; the Betty Cunningham Gallery in New York; and the Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles. An exciting addition to the exhibition is a new relief print, featuring one of his signature birds, recently completed in 2016. This represented the first time Goldberg gave his time and experience to GW students who are engaged in learning printmaking. Meeting with students as a mentor in a collaborative print project at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design resulted in a completed print in a small edition. This vibrantly colored print is typical of Goldberg’s imagery displaying “small families with shared interests and foci.” The original exhibition from which GW selected works was organized by FreedmanArt, New York. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2017 – Friday, April 14, 2017 Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. For more information: http://www.gwu.edu/~bradyart/brady/exhibitions.html
