In ArtBank7’s first group show, “No Stranger Among Us,” the artists group celebrates the profound power of community. Using a variety of artistic mediums, six artists tell their unique stories in a collective spirit. They interweave personal narratives with universal truths, often giving voice to the marginalized or amplifying stories that have been overlooked or silenced. The exhibition aims to serve as a springboard for further conversation that dismantles the barriers that can divide us and advances wider empathy.

“Object Lessons” at the Florence Griswold Museum: Diverse American artworks from Princeton University find common ground
Contributed by Emma Flaherty / George Washington, George Inness, Georgia O’Keeffe—oh my! A diversity of subjects and artists hang in close juxtaposition inside the special exhibition galleries at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT, this summer. Bright colors—royal purple, Princetonian orange, and an inviting teal—convey the excitement that the curators intend these object-partnerships to provoke. Object Lessons in American Art: Selections from the Princeton University Art Museum, on view through September 10, features four centuries of artworks, merging a broad range of paintings, sculptures, photographs, and works on paper with utilitarian objects, such as baskets and pottery.

Contributed by Sharon Butler / On Saturday, April 23, and Sunday, April 24, from 12–6pm, DUMBO artists and arts organizations will open their studios to the public for the first time since 2019, after which DUMBO Open Studios went online due to Covid. The art community here (Two Coats HQ is in the neighborhood) is distinct from others in New York because several prestigious residency programs call DUMBO home. In addition, subsidized rents (Two Coats is a grateful beneficiary of the Two Trees Cultural Space Subsidy Program) make the neighborhood affordable for a diverse cohort of talented artists, both emerging and mid-career. Regardless of the artists’ stature or status, most studios will be open.

Contributed by Sharon Butler / Martin Klines meticulous and thoughtful abstractions, on view at Heather Gaudio Fine Art, are deceptively simple. At first glance, they might appear merely technically accomplished and visually striking. Drill down a little, though, and they recall the action of Jackson Pollocks drip paintings and the […]
Contributed by Emma Stolarski / Kathryn Hart’s “New Dawn,” an inventive site-specific exhibition of sculpture and photography, contemplates the simultaneous organic processes of generation, regeneration, degradation, and, finally, documentation. Each wire-and-fiberglass sculpture incorporates the tension between becoming and eroding, renewal and entropy, growth and decay. The pieces glisten with an […]
