Curated by Magali Duzant. Opening Reception Friday, May 11, 2018, 6:30 – 8:00 pm. In a world where nearly all sight is modified and mediated through a screen, how do artists embrace and push back against this? This group exhibition explores artist’s responses to an ever consuming, blurring, encroaching digital world, specifically one that is reshaping the way we experience and comprehend the natural world. Art by: Richard Munaba, Sacha Vega, Roxana Azar and Paula Morales

Pelham Art Center is announcing a new sculpture installation in Wolfs Lane Park by Anthony Heinz May. Massive trees on the edge of rural Oregon valleys and farmlands where Anthony Heinz May grew up root his earliest memories. Much of his time was spent in contemplation of the natural world encompassing him. Still fascinated by nature and its complexity, Heinz May combines his earliest visions and how humans relate to nature with his current home in NYC. The human constructed, squared world of concrete, steel and glass inform his geometric grid overlapping of nature. The tree sculpture grows out of the ground like a natural tree and is broken into units reminiscent of pixels on screens that make up digital imagery.
Opening Reception in Wolfs Lane Park for ModernDance, an installation by Elizabeth Knowles and Bill Thielen

5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Come join us at the park and at the opening reception across the street from the park at Rockwells Restaurant at 105 Wolfs Lane, Pelham, NY 10803. Natural patterns inspire the work of Elizabeth Knowles and William Thielen. Separately they have created individual bodies of work over the last 25 years. During this time they were engaging in a dynamic, verbal dialogue on aesthetics and philosophy. Resulting from this long-term discourse is the recent collaboration the site-specific outdoor installation ModernDance.

On the longest day of the year, when Scandinavians celebrate in the Land of the Midnight Sun, there will be dance in the Courtyard to traditional Scandinavian folk music (we will have just as much fun inside should it rain). In a hands-on art workshop, you can make the traditional Scandinavian midsummer floral crowns that celebrate the colors and smells of summer.
