Donald Axleroad: “Disintegration of Truth & Trust”

A new series of work created in response to current events and the contemporary issues of today’s world.  Through imagery and symbols, the artist explores the dissolution of American culture; a time and place where dishonesty has become the norm, and for many, innocence has been lost and the American Dream has been shattered.

Michael Digiorgio, “Drawn From Life” @ Middlesex Community College

 

In the Niche:

 

Reception on Wednesday, February 6th, 4:00-6:00 pm in Pegasus Gallery
 
            Michael DiGiorgio’s illustrations are based on direct observation of bird species within their natural habitat. “Drawn from Life” consists of preparatory watercolor sketches produced in Connecticut and abroad. Drawing and painting birds while in the field rather than from photographs is significant to DiGiorgio’s process and contributes the life-like appearance of his subjects.   In his statement prepared for this show he says that: “These field sketches help me produce some of my favorite work, because they have a freshness and immediacy that is almost impossible to get in the studio.”
            DiGiorgio lives in Madison and is an adjunct instructor of art at MxCC and Wesleyan University. He has exhibited nationally including the Bennington Center for the Arts (Bennington, VT), Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum (Wausau, W.I.), Dietel Gallery (Troy, N.Y.), Academy of Natural Sciences (Philadelphia, P.A.) and the Northeast Wildlife Art Exposition (Albany, N.Y.).
 
 The Niche is located in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office.
Hours: Mondays through Thursdays 8am-6pm, Fridays & Saturdays 8am-4pm.
