Beeman: Nature’s Mirror, on view in the Marité & Joe Robinson Strolling
Gallery II, the artist manipulates digital photos of reflective surfaces to
create unexpected views that portray a sense of atmosphere and character. (Bowery Lamp, left)
in Ann’s Place Gallery in Janice Patrigliani: Inspired Resilience,
Patrigliani takes inspiration from World War II Parcel Post parachutes,
creating sculptures with a variety of media and techniques, including denim,
canvas, parachute parts, shibori dyeing, and ceramics (right). By juxtaposing
contradictory materials and forgotten keepsakes for her work, the artist mixes
media with metaphor, recycling the detritus of life to chronicle her story.
