Exhibition: A Pretty Mess: Kurt Anderson and Kathy King - Clay Art Center
Through November 30, 2013 - Port Chester

Clay Art Center is proud to present "A Pretty Mess," featuring the work of Kurt Anderson and Kathy King. The exhibit will run from Oct. 26-Nov. 30, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 26 from 6-8pm. The pair will also lead a two-day, simultaneous demonstration workshop on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26 and 27. To register, visit Kurt Anderson and Kathy King met at a Watershed Artists Invite Artists session in the Summer of 2010. Realizing they are "cut from the same Karmic cloth," as Kurt puts it, the two decided to propose a two-person exhibition. Both artists use graphic imagery and include historical references as an element to their surface compositions. Humor is also an important component to both artists' work. From there, the two are very different. While Kathy's work is narrative in focus, Kurt relies on simple iconic figures. The similarities that tie the work together mixed with the stark are what promises to be a rich and visually interesting Pretty Mess. About his work, Kurt Anderson states: "I am generally attracted to the raw and unrefined spectrum of the Arts and Crafts. My most significant pottery influences have been the folk traditions of China, Japan, and Persia. In my work I attempt to combine the archetypal motifs of these traditions with more contemporary imagery inspired by advertising logos, graphic novels, and urban street art. By shuffling and recombining these proven formulas, it is my hope that the muse of familiarity appears cross-dressed as innovation." About her work, Kathy states: "I utilize ceramic vessels, tiled furniture, and printmaking, either presented individually, or combined in installation, to present narratives from a feminist point of view. The narrative presented on the surface of a vessel, united with the intended contents or utility, creates a working dialogue between function and concept. The surface imagery, reminiscent of an underground comic book style, often incorporates the portrayal of myself as a character. This presentation of personal narrative through satirical humor, irony, and sarcasm allows me to work from a place of exposure and, hopefully, honesty. To both celebrate and poke fun at my gender, sexual identity, or social placement within society, I attempt to exhibit the ways that popular culture not only reflects our lives but also helps create them." Clay Art Center is a not-for-profit ceramic art organization offering exhibitions, clay classes for adults and children, studio spaces for clay artists, and outreach programs in the community. It is located in the heart of Port Chester at 40 Beech Street, Port Chester, NY 10573. Gallery and SHOP hours are Monday through Saturday, 10am-4pm or by appointment. For more information, please contact Caitlin Applegate at or 914-937-2047.

Through December 01, 2013 - Purchase

When it comes to the subject of Israel, nothing is simple; not its history, its geography, its politics, its peoples, or its multicultural and religious core. The points of view are as varied and passionate as the people who populate this land, a little smaller than New Jersey (8,000 square miles), yet large enough to rivet the world's attention. It is a site of conflict, ancient and recent, and of promise. The new exhibition, "The Compromised Land: Recent Photography and Video from Israel," organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College, confronts many of Israel's issues head on. Exploring the themes of coexistence and conflict, history and memory, and the importance of land, the work of twenty-one contemporary artists will be on view in this exhibition through Dec. 1, 2013. "The Compromised Land" revolves around the notion of land, which, in Israel, is regarded as a sacred, as well as a geographical, economic, social, and political organism - rooted in the psyche and culture of its peoples, and thousands of years of history. Israel's conflicts, history, and culture shadow daily life and permeate artistic expression. The work of established and emerging artists, who are emotionally and intellectually invested in their country's fate, gives voice to their sense of unease and threat, as they consider, reveal, interpret, and question Israel's politics, culture, and future. The exhibition also examines Israeli photography and video, practices that dominate contemporary Israeli art, and for which Israel is internationally recognized. The featured artists include: Boaz Arad, Yael Bartana, Joseph Dadoune, Nir Evron, Barry Frydlender, Dani Gal, Ori Gersht, Dor Guez, Oded Hirsch, Miki Kratsman, Sigalit Landau, Dana Levy, Shahar Marcus, Adi Nes, Nira Pereg, Gilad Ratman, Michael Rovner, Lior Shvil, Sharon Ya�Ari, and Rona Yefman with Tanja Schlander. "The Compromised Land: Recent Photography and Video from Israel" is curated by Helaine Posner, Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, and guest curator Lilly Wei; and is accompanied by a fully-illustrated 96-page catalogue with essays by Ory Dessau; Ron Pundak, Israeli historian and chairman of the Israeli Peace NGO Forum; and the co-curators. Support for the exhibition is provided by Artis, Helen Stambler Neuberger and Jim Neuberger, Susan and James Dubin, and the Office of Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in New York. Additional funding is provided by the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art and the Purchase College Foundation. Support for the residency of artist Gilad Ratman is provided by the Israel Institute, which is dedicated to enhancing knowledge and study of modern Israel. Additional support is provided by the UJA-Federation of New York in Westchester.
