Alex Zablocki's MFA Thesis Exhibition, Alchemy Juice, consists of ceramic works that seem to suggest something out of an early 1990’s MTV music video. An over the top mashup of electric and psychedelic paired with monochromatic, speckled and soft pastel colors, jumpstart objects that are charged with tension, noisy with anticipation and yet remain cool and confident in temperament.

A Gallery talk will held on April 17th from 5:15-6pm.

Armchair Explorers by Ryan Rennie

- Location: Fosdick Nelson Gallery
(7:00 PM - 9:00 PM)

Sponsored by:SOAD

Armchair Explores navigates moments in contemporary North American culture that provide us with a collapse of both time and place. This arises through a variety of practices, motifs, or regional styles that stem from global flows, appropriations, and hybrids. I am inspired by the ability to access imagery cross-culturally and how this intertwines with a pursuit for authenticity that arises in the form of new Americana. From opening a history book, wandering on google street view, or meandering through a local emporium, one can easily experience a flattening of both time and place in reference and imagery. In these moments anthropology becomes suspended between the real and imagined and it is here that I aim to give shape to a new exoticism, one that perceives itself in real time and anticipates both its problems and poetics. It is not my goal, however, to revisit a type of twenty-first century primitivism, but to acknowledge how the archaic enters our contemporary language with little reference to origin though still in search for the authentic: simultaneously truth and lie. This removal of provenance is typical in contemporary pop culture and the consumer market. I aim to appropriate the appropriated as a means of reflecting on the first removal and any absurdity that may arise in its initial theft.

Opening Reception for William Underhill's "Circle and Square," at the Cohen

- Location: Cohen Gallery, 55 N Main, Alfred
(All Day)
- Link: Cohen webpage

- Attachment 1: poster by Courtney Ferarra
Circle and Square, a survey of William Underhill’s cast bronze, iron, and aluminum sculptures, features pieces dating from 1960 through his current work. Circle and Square opens April 15th with a reception for the artist from 6-8pm, and will run through August 4, 2017.

Underhill’s work formally explores the vessel and architectural form. Circle and Square highlights sculpture that demonstrates a sophisticated use of geometry. Underhill’s process for generating new sculpture relies heavily on drawing as he cuts and reassembles sketches, exploring new planes to discover new form, searching for a tension found in the “merger of opposites.” The sketches become plasticine forms from which molds are taken before the piece is cast in wax, and finally, in metal.
