My Medicine Part Two

June 18--September 7, 2015

Galaudet Gallery chose the title My Medicine to show the power art has to heal and to aid in self discovery and discovery of worlds beyond our day to day lives. Great art transports the viewer to another place and time, another space and moment, a new way of seeing life. The art in My Medicine  does just that. The title also comes from the belief that art is medicine for others and for the two primary artists of this exhibition Oscar Howe and Vicki Milewski.

 

Many Oscar Howe reproductions will be on view such as Horse Dance and Seed Player.  Oscar Howe painted symbolic scenes based on his Native American cultural mythology that are imbedded in a Tohokmu (spider web); every color and shape imaginatively propels the viewer forward into the seemingly infinite progression of possible configurations of the artwork.  Meaning and myth; while simultaneously pulling the viewer backwards toward a quest for the “original” source or referent that underlines the paradoxes between sacred rituals and the real life harshness they honor, also pull the viewer forward into the future of artisitc creation that is seeped in meaning but that speaks on its own.

 

Vicki Milewski's Badlands Roads collection will be a part of this exhibit.  Milewski's Roads tell of a journey with topography, cartography and  spirituality guiding her on roads and in skies while she finds that leaving means an ever returning to herself renewed and excited about life.  The roads in question all exist in her artistic reality and in the badlands of western South Dakota; and they offer a glimpse of the transformation of the American road trip into one of self discovery and humble acceptance that there are powers and experiences that are a part of our physical reality but which are seldom spoken of in our 21st Century lives.  Her work on this collection asks us all to share our experiences.

Tools of the Trade

September 25-November 9, 2015

 

Tools of the Trade refocuses the idea of tools into works of art.  Sometimes abstracted, repurposed or in their original states, these works of art challenge our expectations of everyday tools and what they can produce in skilled hands.  Primary artist Mike Milewski places historical accuracy and abstraction on the same plane creating intellectually stimulating works which also contain humor in the realization that a piece may have once been a hammer, that a sun may have once been a saw blade, that a drill bit may pose as a leg.  Milewski says he enjoys breaking down the walls between the real and the abstract since in the rubble there lies a truth about work.

 

Tools are a known hallmark of civilization since even in the caves of  Lascaux, France the tools used to remake the cave and create the art on its walls were left in the cave for us to know what helped make this prehistoric space.  

 

Tools have also been a source of artistic creativity since the act of creation stresses the simple fact that artists use tools, at times of their own fashioning, to make art, just as skilled craftsmen make tools to create decorative art objects.  This Collection explores the transformation of utilitarian, everyday objects while appealing to the builder in all of us.

Beauty In Glass:  A Tiffany Replica Lamp Exhibit and Sale

This exhibit introduces Galauet Gallery's work on bringing awareness to the Arts and Crafts Movement which is seeing a resurgence that Galaudet Gallery calls 21st Century Art Movement which seeks to unify the arts with high quality crafts seen as art and in this unification strengthen the potential and opportunities for creators.  The crafstmanship of the lamps is high quality with the stained and painted glass all hand placed.  Some use Tiffany Studio molds that mean the shades are just like the original only without the stress cracks and fissures the originals contain. 

 

Take home a piece of decorative art and suppport your local art gallery and its mission!

Where Our Food Comes From:
The Receiving Jar

April 23-June , 2015

 

Galaudet Gallery presents Part 1 of Where Our Food Comes From:  The Milk Receiving Jar: Dairy Farming in the 21st Century which reveals new perspectives in dairy farming through oil paintings, drawings, photos and fiber art influenced by rural culture and the people that feed us.

 

Where Our Food Comes From is a four part exhibition series seeking to understand our food’s origins within the realization of the cultures and people who create it.  The Milk Receiving Jar: Dairy Farming in the 21st Century is Part One of this series and it questions sustainability issues inherent in dairy farming through introducing the crops and processes involved with bringing milk to our tables.
