Nancy Judd, Eco-Flamenco, 2011, Cereal boxes, recycled paint, parachute scraps, Courtesy of the Artist
This dress was created from cereal boxes painted with recycled paint and transformed into cascades of ruffles.
Over 5,000 people wrote eco-pledges on the ruffles before they were sewn on to the dress which was sewn from parachute scraps.

​ReDress: Upcycled Style by Nancy Judd features couture fashion sculptures made from everyday throwaways. Glamorous, shimmering evening gowns, appearing as fine couture and refined garments, are made from crushed glass and salvaged upholstery fabric. Artist and environmental educator, Nancy Judd began creating recycled fashions in 1998 while serving as the recycling coordinator for the City of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Through her art she encourages people to look differently at trash, to see garbage not as waste, but as wasted resources.

This exhibition has been organized by Nancy Judd and is circulating through GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions.

Lynnette C. Jung Memorial Lecture with Nancy Judd: Friday, September 8, 6:00pm at the Lincoln Center (417 W. Magnolia St): This lecture will feature artist and environmental educator Nancy Judd who utilizes her beautiful couture fashion sculptures made from trash to engage audiences in a conversation about different ways of looking at waste. This lecture is sponsored by Dr. Peter Springberg in Memory of Lynnette C. Jung.

Charles Livingston: Quantum

Eric Anderson: Perception(s)

Pirate: Contemporary Art

July 21 – August 6, 2017

  • Opening reception, Friday July 21, 6-10pm
Image: Installation detail by Charles Livingston and mixed media painting detail by Eric Anderson.

Charles Livingston presents “Quantum”, large scale room installations made of stretched bicycle inner tubes and video with related mono-prints. For this installation he investigates perceptions of comfort and discomfort through the use of sound, sight, and smell using a material that is structured on tension. Most of his work is based on the underlying concept of accumulation and accretion as metaphors for how the world is structured from a micro to macro scale. Eric Anderson presents “Perception(s)”, mixed media paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints that are meant to catalyze the deconstruction of ideas of self and of the other - while existing in the dimension in between these relative embodiments.

TerrorTranquility eblast

Max Maddox has been working at Art Gym this past year on his “Forgeries of Forgeries”– ready-mades and “re crafted objects” dealing with Boko Haram’s abduction of girls at Chibok and the resulting forced marriage of them to soldiers of the Islamic Extremists Group.

Juxtaposed is the photographic work of Roy Toma, who works in Art Gym’s digital department to alter his images of the natural world. In his own words, "I’m starting to work with my images on different planes and parallels, and with the advent of quantum physics, the world of potential micro/macro imagery really opens up the potential to examine the world of non-duality and unity”.

Lisa Calzavara: Artist Statement: Lines have many meanings. It can be as simplistic as a long narrow mark or stroke made on or in a surface. It can lead you places such as a path or in a direction of movement. It can also define a shape or give contour to something. Lines can unite or divide, so what does it all mean?

Revivescere: Aria Fawn & Cheyenne Croy

Valkarie Gallery

July 19 - August 13, 2017

  • Opening Reception: Saturday, July 22, 5 - 8:30pm
  • First Friday Art Walk: August 4, 6 - 9pm

Nature is cyclical; it is a series of beginnings bleeding into endings which once more give rise to further beginnings. New life is born above the dirt while the dead sleep below, nurturing the soil and giving energy to the Earth. In this sense, nothing ever truly dies but instead exists eternally; living again as a part of the cycle of renewal. Artists Cheyenne Croy and Aria Fawn explore these themes in their work illustrating the rebirth of creatures beyond one's imagination and emphasizing the beauty of nature's creation of life through death. Cheyenne’s work showcases various displays of bones, insects, animal remains and dried plants which seem to be suspended forever in a moment of time featuring both natural and fantasy scenes that give new life to the deceased. Similarly, Aria’s surreal paintings and textile sculpture portray the mysterious spirits of nature beyond the veil and the subtle clockwork of the Earth’s balance with the living and the dead. These two artists compliment each other through their love for the natural world and their ability to render the beauty of the ephemeral qualities in life.

Next Gallery is pleased to present “This is Not a Duck” by Cedric Chambers and “iworry” by Pam Farris. Featuring meta-modern paintings of rubber duckies and conceptual mosaics of fears.

“iworry” is a look at what keeps me awake at night. I didn’t concentrate on your usual suspects: spider, the dark, etc . These are general fears that I believe most people lose sleep or become insomniacs about. Instead of showing these fears in a dark light, I made them look like they could innocuous.” – Pam Farris

“This is Not A Duck is an exploration of rubber duckies which I found in a thrift store. Through the process of painting the duckies, I accidentally discovered a culture of people who are obsessed with rubber duckies. I am also surprised to learn that there are rubber duckies of nearly anything you can think of. Who knows what kinds of duckies you will find at latest art exhibition.” – Cedric Chambers
