Winfred Rembert: Amazing Grace - Hudson River Museum
Through May 05, 2012 - Yonkers

Winfred Rembert: Amazing Grace is the first major museum exhibition dedicated to this mid-career, self-taught artist. The exhibit shows the dramatic, biographical nature of Rembert's art as it documents the tumultuous moments of civil rights history. More than 50 original works that Rembert created from stretched, stained, and etched leather, historical photographs of his life, and a new documentary of his work, created by noted filmmaker Vivian Ducat, will be on view. In the galleries, traditional gospel music, pivotal for Rembert, will be heard in recordings, and Rembert will both sing gospel songs and discuss his experiences in the galleries on several dates. Rembert, a boy growing up in 1950s rural Georgia, did backbreaking labor in the cotton fields. As a young man, he barely escaped arrest during a 1960's civil rights march, and survived a near lynching. A prisoner serving an unjust seven-year sentence, he learned to make pattern and design on hand tooled leather by watching a fellow inmate create tooled leather wallets. Years later in colorful tableaux on tanned leather, Rembert conjured a world of incredible brutality and close personal ties existing in discomforting proximity. Amazing Grace's riveting themes include the Cotton Field series, where cotton balls snake relentlessly through rows where field hands toiled. Another theme explores the lighter side of Rembert's memories of small town Cuthbert, Georgia. He populates his canvases with the town's characters and scenes of a pool hall, jazz club, cafe, and church meetings. The exhibition is organized by the Hudson River Museum and curated by Bartholomew F. Bland. Through May 5.

Nybelwyck Hall: A Mansion in Miniature - Hudson River Museum - Glenview
Through January 08, 2013 - Yonkers

Nybelwyck Hall, a dollhouse representing Lilliputian life at its most luxurious, makes its appearance in Glenview, the Museum's 1897 river home. The 24-room, granite-and-mortar Glenview, and Nybelwyck, the 24-room dollhouse, share architectural features - a Great Hall and a double staircase that curves from the top floor down to the Hall. Nybelwyck's central facade is loosely based on the Hudson River estate, Staatsburg, the Ogden Mills House. The orange-and-green colors on its Victorian addition are reminiscent of Wilderstein, in Rhinebeck, the family home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's personal secretary. Dollhouse enthusiast Mark O'Banks created Nybelwyck Hall over the course of a decade and looked to the wisdom of a ouija board to name his creation. The house is furnished with found objects in its 24 rooms, as well as rugs O'Banks designed. Among its 900 objects are minute musical instruments that play, doors with intricate locks that work, and a tiny dollhouse within the dollhouse's nursery.
