Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan

In celebration of the relaunching of the last surviving wooden whaleship, Lyman Allyn presents Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan.

The exhibition, which runs from September 21 through June 8, 2014, will look at how whaling—its myths and reality, risk and reward—left its mark on Connecticut and American identity.

In the 1800s, friends and family gathered on the docks to wish “greasy luck” for a successful voyage to departing whaleships.

 

To most people, whales were mysterious creatures.  Yet whaling was big business.

 

The thousands of barrels of oil the whalers brought home made ports like New London and Mystic some of the wealthiest places in the young nation, supporting a wide array of dockside occupations.

PERRY OBEE, “STACKED SPACE”

Perry Obee’s painting process is driven by the formal and material concerns of direct studio practice. As explorations of the abstract, representational and material properties of paint the underling content of his work is the situational context of everyday objects, people and place. In the “Stacked Space” series, precarious vertical and horizontal stacks of books and other objects appear to dissolve into shallow background planes. Modern still-life traditions are engaged here as composition; lighting and color are manipulated to derive a sense of self-referential order and harmony. These arranged views of Obee’s possessions double as autobiographical interactions of momentary space, artistic perspective and the material experience of his own place within them.

Obee is an adjunct art instructor at MxCC. He holds an MFA from Western Connecticut State University and a BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University. See more of his work at perryobee.carbonmade.com. Pegasus Gallery is located within the library on the first floor of Chapman Hall. Hours: Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., when classes are in session.

 

KAREN BARTONE, “TONDO ART: AN INTIMATE EXHIBITION OF MINIATURE PAINTINGS

Attend a reception on Wednesday February 5, 2014 from 5 to 7 p.m. and enjoy Karen Barton’s series of tondo paintings, which employ the traditional round panel format and the Italian Renaissance combination of oil paint and gold leaf. Picturesque subjects of reflected water lilies, trees, sky and rippled water dislocate viewer’s sense of specificity as they are composed within closely cropped peephole perspectives. The small scale and circular shapes here similarly reference telescopic and magnified slide compositions in as much as the direct landscapes they represent. Bartone lives in Clinton, Connecticut, and holds an MFA from Western Connecticut State University and a BFA from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. See more of her work at karenbartone.com. The Niche is located in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office. Hours: Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to  4 p.m.

 

Connecting Over Missed Connections: A Talk by New York Artist Ingrid Burrington

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and as stores start to stock up with flowers, hearts and chocolate boxes, we are constantly reminded that love is in the air. For some, though, this holiday can evoke feelings of loneliness and unhappiness. Feeling like we are missing out on this sort of love connection is at the core of Ingrid Burrington’s Center for Missed Connections project, which maps and studies loneliness and romantic longing in cities through the missed connections section of Craigslist. The day before Valentine’s Day, join Franklin Street Works on Thursday, February 13 from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. for “Connecting Over Missed Connections,” a conversation with New York-based artist, Ingrid Burrington. For the talk, Burrington will discuss her Center For Missed Communications project, and we will collectively embrace “loneliness,” the longing, poetic and banal, within public spaces. Please join us for this free, public event that also includes light snacks and a signature valentines day drink.

The Center For Missed Connections project started with Burrington’s simple question, “What is the loneliest place in New York City?” As she started to do research, the missed connections sections of Craigslist seemed to be the perfect place to start. This section, exclusive to Craigslist, is a common zone of loneliness in print that is also a free-for-all dialogue of venting, longing, and spamming. Burrington explains, “Analysis of Craigslist Missed Connections postings and communities offers a glimpse into the loneliness and sexual tension that serve as the linchpin of any thriving metropolitan environment.”

Ingrid Burrington’s Taxonomy of Missed Connections, part of Center for Missed Connections, is a mapping of missed connections in New York City, and is currently on view in Franklin Street Works’ Neuromast: Certain Uncertainty and Contemporary Art show. The exhibition, curated by Taliesen Gilkes-Bower and Terri C. Smith, is on view through March 9. The show explores “emergence,” the theory that says unforeseeable results happen when a system reaches a certain level of complexity. Exhibiting artists are: Kari Altmann, Christian Bök and Micah Lexier, Ingrid Burrington, Kaye Cain-Nielsen, Mircea Cantor, hint.fm, David Horvitz, Brian House and Jason Rabie, Juliana Huxtable, Thilde Jensen, Carolyn Lazard, M. M. Mantua, Preemptive Media, Robert Spahr, Elizabeth Stephens and Annie Sprinkle’s Sexecology collaboration, and The Waterwhisper Ilse.
