MAXIMUS/minimus, 8 Women Artists

I've curated this exhibit featuring 8 dynamic Staten Island artists at ART at Bay, 70 Bay St., Staten Island, NY, a fine arts collaborative gallery one block from the Staten Island ferry terminal. The exhibit is sponsored by the Staten Island Creative Community, a grassroots organization. I like to say "We create our own opportunities".

Exhibition Dates: April 2 - May 1, 2011
Gallery Hours: Saturday and Sunday, Noon - 6pm
Opening Reception: Saturday April 2, 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Second Saturday Art Walk: April 9, 6:00 - 9:00 pm

      Robert Sherman, Victoria Hallerman, Edward Joyce

Exhibiting Artists:
   Irma Bohorquez-Geisler - photographs         Denise Mumm – collages, paintings
   Judith Hugentobler - sculpture                      Rachel Sanchez - paintings
   Sheryl Humphrey - paintings                         Lucy Smith - paintings
   Gail Middleton - photographs                       Jenni Vitek – paintings, fiberart

I curated this exhibition through an open call to women in the Staten Island Creative Community membership and by invitation. The exhibit contains diametrically opposed aesthetics; pure, simple and minimalist vs. baroque, intense and densely-packed. Sometimes the two aesthetics are embodied in one artist. Hence the title MAXIMUS/minimus.

Directions to the gallery via public transportation from Manhattan:
Subways to S. I. Ferry: R to Whitehall, 1 to South Ferry or 4/5 to Bowling Green.
