Grand Tour of Group Art
Think of this as your stay-at-home Grand Tour. If a
prime ingredient is places and things of interest, then Ellarslie,
the museum of the city of Trenton, located in Cadwalader Park, and
the Gallery at Mercer County Community College both fit the bill.
And that’s even before you have surveyed the group art exhibitions
on view at each site.
Through April 15, the city museum is literally filled with two-and
three-dimensional art — the work of nearly 100 artists, about
150 pieces were juried into the 19th annual Ellarslie Open. Taking
a page on hanging from the Barnes Foundation, that embattled and
art collection in Merion, Pennsylvania, the Ellarslie staff evidently
elected an inclusionary approach, if not one featuring ready
One room alone holds almost 30 pieces of art, including four
on pedestals, one hanging relief, and a soft sculpture at a window.
New, and welcome, the chairs in some rooms allow viewers to sit and
contemplate the works after getting an overview.
Fortunately the museum seems never to be crowded. During a slow walk
through the six high-ceilinged exhibition rooms, all with great
floors and large windows blessedly devoid of any "treatment"
except light streaming through clean glass, only one other visitor
occasionally appeared. If you crave solitude, this is the place to
be on a Friday morning. Juried by artist, teacher, and art historian
Mel Leipzig, the unpaginateded show booklet includes specifications
on each work and a statement from Leipzig.
"Isn’t Diversity Great?" is the ironic title of a watercolor
by Dallas Piotrowski that shows two identical, blue-footed birds
a third bird, sporting bright pink feet and somewhat different
Seriously intended, "diversity" could also be the exhibition
theme, ranging as the show does from a large painted tribute to Walt
Disney to "Cocoon Bundle 6," one of two sizable mixed-media
sculptures by the same artist, and to an amazing "Wheel of
Animals" (think tapir, kiwi, dik-dik, aye-aye — or better
yet, use your illustrated dictionary). Mother Nature gets into the
act too: in one room, hundreds of ladybugs crawled on windows and
floors, obviously just hatched and ready to go to work — an
of too-early spring.
Arlene Milgram is one of a number of artists represented both at
and at Mercer College. Here, her abstract, two-piece "Meditation
(by Myself)" has both color and surface appeal within a small
format of cold wax and oil on wood. (She’s represented by three
blocks, hung vertically, at Mercer College. They explore other color
relationships.) Petro Hul’s two marble sculptures, "Deer"
and "Cat," the former bearing bronze antlers, are smooth,
stylized, and (if it were legal) appealingly pettable.
In a case of not one but two stories to tell,
Matt Lucash’s large oil painting, shows an old woman in a chair,
a reproduction of Andrew Wyeth’s "Christina’s World" on an
otherwise unexceptional wall. Little in this woman’s milieu is notable
or beautiful. What is she thinking? What is her life like? Also
as well as interestingly textured and spotted, William Knight’s
"Genesis I," presents swirling, amorphous life forms, with
suggestions of evolution underway.
The perennial harvest problem — what to do with all that squash
— is "painted large" in Joseph Mikloucik’s
oil called "Squash," in which one giant specimen in a
structure epitomizes the unwelcome windfall. Elizabeth Aubrey’s small
"Turtle" print, though no more explicit than that as to
is charming, and Karen Baczewski’s two oils, "After the Storm"
and "Somewhere in Time" both offer unusual perspectives on
nature in near-monochrome.
In four chrome prints, Ingeborg Snipes makes photographic art. Her
"Boat-Honfleur" is a color close-up of the bright yellow prow
of a wooden boat, bordered in blue and red, and reflected in rippling
water for a near-abstract study in primary colors. Artist Paul
joined by subject Paul Matthews, is represented four times in three
oil self-portraits. (This above all, to thine own self…?) With whorl
and lock images, or suggestions of textured stone blocks, rather than
embedded materials, papermaker Marie Sturken has produced two
lovely "Pyrenees Doors."
It has got to be a Herculean task to hang such as show as Ellarslie’s,
in six rooms on two floors. So we won’t quibble too much about a
label or a couple others with typos, or wish the exhibition booklet
had page numbers (instead of "VISA/MC") and consecutive
of works. And having to circumnavigate Cadwalader Park before reaching
the museum will become more pleasurable as spring progresses.
the long walk from the Mercer County College parking area to the
Building and the upstairs gallery amounts, literally, to a wake-up
call, with tree- and people-watching an added attraction.
From about 200 entries, juror Kate Somers chose nearly 80 works by
almost 70 artists for the "Mercer County Artists 2001" exhibition
on view at Mercer County College to April 5. Nearly one-third of those
represented are returners to this show, while close to another third
are new to it. In contrast to Ellarslie, where a few artists are
by three or four works, no artist has more than two pieces included
here — which seems like a good idea if overcrowding is to be
Michael Ramus, long a luminary in New York’s illustration field, then
a Princeton Artists Alliance member and maker of whimsical works —
a cunning papier-mache chimp comes to mind — turns up at Mercer
with one of his giant playing-card paintings trimmed with real
tokens, and yellow paper clips coins. The king of spades has probably
never looked so enticing. Is Ramus’s oil and collage "Playing
Card Variations 4" a harbinger of things to come? And which came
Barbara Osterman’s title, "Meditation," or the black, calligraphic
stroke that seems to kneel?
Rosemary Blair’s watercolor, "Canal Reflections," is
delightfully colorful, with vivid autumn tree hues and trunks doubled
by reflection in the water. Another watery scene is Judity Nahmias’s
oil, "Calm Brook:" a drear scene, with leafless trees and
wintry water winding through them; sky and water combine for a
monochrome. "The Pink House" of Joseph Gyurcsak is a softly
hard-edged street scene showing parts of four houses and all of the
title home, with white wash hung out here and there, and utility wires
looping across the top of the picture.
With his untitled hanging sculpture made of bright yellow urethane,
Clay Ervin ties with Dahlia Guzik, whose mixed media painting,
Birth," also raises more questions than it answers. If there were
such a thing, these two would share my "penny for your
award. Suffice it to say that Ervin’s cylindrical work, some six or
eight inches long and maybe four inches around, includes a couple
of seeming-buttons and the look of fabric here and there. Guzik’s
piece includes at least six women’s figures, all in different colors,
snakey forms, a fish face, and a pattern of rats, or squirrels —
besides a floating baby with umbilical cord still attached.
The most surprising entry at Mercer is "Rocking Horse," a
very new-age steed made partly from the base of a rocking chair, and
moving upward to an abstracted curving back that might be a strip
of Lucite, with other recognizable horse-elements cleverly suggested
with other materials This "mixed media construct" is the work
of Deborah Hockstein, a printmaker of note, and here obviously
her whimsy. Pierre Bonnard would feel a kinship with Lucretia
whose "Interior," in dry pastel, looks to be a chromatic
to the French artist.
A variety of sculpture adds interest to this show. Side by side, two
of them represent three-dimensional opposites: Jonathan Maley’s bronze
"Good Form" is massively simple and smoothly rounded, while
Mark Fredenburg’s "The Director," appropriate in granite,
is a series of boxy gray graduated steps, or layers, topped with the
head of an impersonal automaton.
There’s much more to see at both venues, each one an attractive
all its own. With a change-of-pace lunch in between, you can make
a day of it. So this grand tour is not just fairly local, but fairly
short as well. You’ll be home in time for dinner, with lots to talk
