Retrospective of Artist Hilda Green Demsky Held in Larchmont, 10/25
by BWW News Desk - August 27, 2014

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 25 3-5pm MAG Gallery, 126 Larchmont Avenue, Larchmont, NY. Hours: Tues-Sat 11-5pm. Exhibition Oct 21-November 15. Hilda Green Demsky, a Fulbright Fellow, recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts grant and winner of the Andy Warhol Visual Arts Residency, has had an extensive, multi-faceted career focusing on the ebb and flow of her life. From the Pennsylvania coal mines of her youth, to our polluted waterways, to the cosmos, to the parks of New York and New England (Artist-in-Residence at Acadia National Park), Ms. Demsky shares the highlights of her career as a fine artist in this 60-year retrospective exhibition. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University in 1958 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art & Design, Ms. Demsky began paintings of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Company, which were exhibited at City Center Gallery and Lincoln Center. Travel has been a big influence in her outpouring of canvases, as she received numerous art residencies, awards and fellowships from all over the world creating landscape, abstract and environmental paintings. Her outer space artworks were inspired by an invitation to witness a launch at the NASA Space Center in Florida after receiving the Christa McAuliffe Fellowship. Her exhibition at the National Gallery of Costa Rica reflected her love of painting 'en plein air' on canvas and Mylar. A resident of Larchmont, NY, Ms. Demsky has been a member of the Mamaroneck Artists Guild for 42 years and is a member of the Katonah Museum Art Association, the Pen & Brush, and National Association of Women's Artists. The book, 'Hilda Green Demsky: The Flow of the Artist's Life and Work,' containing her biography and more than 100 color photographs of her paintings, will accompany this exhibition.

Photo Flash: Behind the Scenes - Historic Hamptons Mansion Gala Benefits Southampton Historical Museum
by BWW News Desk - August 25, 2014

Invitations to parties and galas at magnificent private homes in the Hamptons are always coveted but the hottest ducat last week was the lecture by architect, historian Gary Lawrance, co-author with Anne Surchin of Houses of the Hamptons: 1800-1930 held in one of the largest private residences ever built on the East End, Whitefield formerly known as The Orchard. Sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum, the talk quickly sold out and several hundred guests filled the baronial music room at the sprawling estate. With its soaring, carved mahogany wood walls, coffered ceilings with hand painted embellishments and a fireplace that one could stand inside, the Music Room was the ideal setting for a discussion about the Gilded Age.

Pierce Ball Gallery Presents 'The Art of Transformation', 9/20
by BWW News Desk - August 25, 2014

Transforming paper or clay into works of art is the theme of the new show at the Pierce Ball Gallery in Stamford. 'The Art of Transformation,' a one weekend only show, will be open to the public Saturday and Sunday September 20 - 21, 1-5pm. The show features the work of 2 artists - Deborah Weiss's works on paper and panel and Mindy Horn's ceramic vessels and sculptures. There will be a preview on September 19, 5-8pm. 'I selected these 2 artists because of the complimentary nature of both of their art. Both have a subtle intensity to their work. You look and look again, each time seeing something different,' said Elizabeth P. Ball, Director of the Pierce Ball Gallery. Deborah Weiss's work is an exploration of the effects of atmospheric conditions on land, water and the resulting patina of time. These elements inform her work and at times determine the subject matter. As an artist/printmaker, Weiss's work fuses the painterly with relief printmaking techniques on paper and panels. Her works are both meditative and hypnotic. Mindy Horn approaches all of her work as sculpture, whether or not it is functional. She looks at form, balance, texture and color, striving for her vessels and sculpture to generate a feeling of visual intent, a feeling that they always existed as they do now. In addition, the gallery will have on display and for sale paintings by 2 African elephants, Jabu and Thembi from Botswana. The Pierce Ball Gallery is the exclusive gallery for these special works of art. The Pierce Ball Gallery is located at 9 Webbs Hill Road, Stamford, CT off Exit 34 Merritt Parkway. For more information, call 203-329-1105. www.pierceballgallery.com (more...)
