Miracles in Miniature: The Art of the Master of Claude de France - Morgan Library & Museum
Through September 14, 2014 - New York

The Master of Claude de France was one of the last great French illuminators. His was a fine and delicate style, characterized by the use of subtle lilacs, mauves and roses, juxtaposed with chartreuse and royal blue -- all applied in tiny, almost invisible brushstrokes. The Claude Master flourished in Tours (in the Loire valley) for only about twelve years (ca. 1508-1520), leaving behind a small but exceptional oeuvre. Over the last several years, the Morgan has acquired a critical mass of the Claude Master's work, of which nearly two dozen items will be featured in this exhibition. The centerpiece is the Prayer Book of Claude de France, one of two tiny, jewel-like manuscripts that he painted for the queen of France and after which the artist was named. The Prayer Book was a personal commission by Queen Claude (first wife of King Francois I) around the time of her coronation in 1517. The manuscript measures a mere 2 3/4 by 2 inches, but it includes an amazing 132 miniatures. Encoded within the tiny book are images that reflect the queen's private anxieties, including her fear that she might have inherited from her mother, Anne de Bretagne (twice queen of France), the inability to bear healthy sons. Visitors will have the opportunity to access all of the Prayer Book's miniatures via an iPad in the gallery. Also on view will be twelve newly discovered calendar miniatures by the Claude Master, which the Morgan recently acquired. These works will be complimented by loans from private collectors and from the Free Library of Philadelphia. Manuscripts by Jean Bourdichon, the Claude Master's teacher, and by Jean Poyer and Jacques Ravaud, two artists active in Tours who influenced him, will also be displayed.

Through September 14, 2014 - New York

The first major U.S. exhibition of works by Haida artist Robert Davidson, a pivotal figure in the Northwest Coast Native art renaissance since 1969, when he erected the first totem pole in his ancestral Massett village since the 1880s. For more than 40 years, Davidson has mastered Haida art traditions by studying the great works of his great-grandfather Charles Edenshaw and others. More recently, Davidson has interjected his own interpretation of the old forms with forays into abstraction, explored in boldly minimalistic easel paintings, graphic works, and sculpture, where images are pared to essential lines, elemental shapes, and strong colors. Robert Davidson: Abstract Impulse features 45 paintings, sculptures, and prints created since 2005, as well as key images from earlier in the artist's career that show Davidson's evolution toward an elemental language of form.

Designing Modern Women, 1890s-1990s - Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Through September 21, 2014 - New York

Modern design of the 20th century was profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women -- as muses of modernity and shapers of new ways of living, and as designers, patrons, performers, and educators. This installation, drawn entirely from MoMA's collection, celebrates the diversity and vitality of individual artists' engagement in the modern world, from Loie Fuller's pulsating turn-of-the-century performances to Paula Scher's deconstructivist graphics of the 1990s. Highlights include the first display of a newly conserved kitchen by Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier (1952) from the Unite d'Habitation housing project; furniture and designs by Lilly Reich, Eileen Gray, Eva Zeisel, Ray Eames, Lella Vignelli, and Denise Scott Brown; textiles by Anni Albers and Eszter Haraszty; ceramics by Lucy Rie; a display of 1960s psychedelic concert posters by graphic designer Bonnie Maclean; and a never-before-seen selection of posters and graphic material from the punk era, featuring women designers, photographers, or performers. The gallery's "graphics corner" first explores the changing role and visual imagery of The New Woman through a selection of posters created between 1890 and 1938; in April 2014 the focus will shift to Women at War, an examination of the iconography and varied roles of women in times of conflict, commemorating the centennial of the outbreak of World War I.

Mel Bochner: Strong Language - The Jewish Museum
Through September 21, 2014 - New York

An in-depth survey of Bochner's career-long fascination with the cerebral and visual associations of words. The exhibition will include over 70 text-based works. Among the highlights are his mid-1960s Portrait Drawings, never before exhibited in New York, and paintings from the last decade using synonyms appropriated from the latest edition of Roget's Thesaurus. Bochner was inspired by the Thesaurus' new permissiveness to broaden his linguistic references juxtaposing vernacular against proper, formal against vulgar, high against low. A founding figure of the Conceptual Art movement of the 1960s, his Working Drawings and Other Visible Things on Paper Not Necessarily Meant to be Viewed as Art is considered to be the first Conceptual Art exhibition. Mel Bochner (b. 1940) emerged at a time when young artists considered painting exhausted. A pioneer in incorporating language into visual art, Bochner has taken an unusual turn toward painterly expressiveness during the past two decades. Mel Bochner: Strong Language will reveal the artist's longstanding engagement with the possibilities of language as image, medium, and content. Visitors will be able to see a broad selection ranging from often witty early conceptual works to vibrantly colored and lushly executed recent paintings.

Installation: American Meshuggana - Museum of the Moving Image

"If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man." -Albert Einstein Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce the third Storefront Project, Hexagon Communitas by Edel Kelly, a pop-up, site-specific installation in downtown Pelham that transforms an empty restaurant facade into a rich, golden, reflective streetscape that engages in the matter of "The Bee." Hexagon Communitas balances reflection and reveal, and interior and exterior, to bring attention to the importance of the bee. The window panes will be installed with gold reflective vinyl, creating a playful interaction where a viewer's image will be mirrored, and reflected-light will change with the weather. Six of the storefront panes will be filled with a light yellow transparent gel, which will reveal a table draped in yellow and set with a gold plate and abstract sculpture inside the former restaurant. Hovering above the table will be a luminous hexagon sculpture. Kelly's use of color and form creates a relationship to nature, specifically the use of yellow, gold, and the hexagon shape. The latter also serves as a metaphor for the North American Honey Bee and its hive. The work of the bee is to pollinate crops, which brings food to our tables. Today the bee population is in serious decline from multiple factors, most prominently from the use of pesticides and insecticides like neonicotinoids used in Genetically Modified Organisms. This controversial practice might well have devastating environmental consequences in the near future. The artist's intent is to initiate a dialogue into the subject of CCD, colony collapse disorder of the bee, and whether we are better working with nature rather than against it. Passersby can view this exhibition from street level 24 hours a day/7 days a week through the storefront windows of 156 Fifth Ave., across the street from The Pelham Art Center. Hexagon Communitas will be on view through Sept. 23. A Super Opening Reception will be held at Pelham Art Center on Sept. 12 from 6:30-8pm in conjunction with the fall gallery exhibition, "Natural Enemies," which will include a free hands-on sculpture workshop. A pre-opening event will take place at 6pm with an outdoor dance performance by Peg Moore-Maioriello from Metropolidance. About Edel Kelly Edel Kelly, born in Ireland, is an artist based in New York City, whose practice involves photography, video, painting, sculpture, and installation. Kelly studied at Columbia College Chicago, ICP NY, and Hunter College, NY. Her work is inspired by nature, indigenous culture, and adventure. Most recently Kelly has exhibited a short film, "Manifestation of a Tree" at The Rubin Museum of Art in New York in conjunction with the "Bodies in Balance" exhibition. Recent exhibitions of her sculptural work include: The Henry Salon pop up "Neon Hexa #1" and "Fugitive Day" at Hunter College.

She has also shown at the ICP NY, Digital Dimensions Group Show. More about The Storefront Project Pelham Art Center's Storefront Project activates empty and underused storefronts in downtown Pelham, NY, by installing temporary "pop-up" art exhibitions by emerging artists. These street-level exhibitions serve to energize both the space and the streetscape, continuously refreshing the cultural environment of downtown Pelham. Exhibitions of painting, photography, and other two-dimensional work, along with sculpture and installations will each be shown for roughly one month. The Storefront Project is part of PAC's larger Public Art Program, which includes sculpture and installation exhibitions in the Pelham Art Center courtyard for enjoyment by the public. Free arts programming positively impacts the neighborhood, stimulates local businesses, and builds community by attracting residents and new visitors to an arts destination. PAC's first Storefront Project is located at 156 5th Avenue and was generously donated by neighboring business Annie's Nail & Spa. An open call was published in April inviting artists to respond to one or more of the following criteria when submitting a proposal: site-specificity, community building, public engagement, interactivity, history of Pelham/Westchester County/New York, and/or the importance of creating and sustaining public spaces. For more information on how to apply, visit Pelham Art Center's website at pelhamartcenter.org. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, with 12 proposals accepted per year. All work is for sale and inquiries can be made through Pelham Art Center.

The ARt of Zero: Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, Gunther Uecker & Friends - Neuberger Museum of Art
Through September 28, 2014 - Purchase

In the wake of devastation wrought by World War II, European artists who called themselves Group Zero, attempted to re-harmonize the relationship between humankind and nature, proclaiming the "zero hour" of postwar art. In the 1950s, two of the artists -- Heinz Mack and Otto Piene -- developed a new visual language to create "new art for a new age," exploring light, movement, and structure, using materials and technology taken from science and industry. Representing the "incommensurable zone in which the old state turns to the new," these artists used the meaning of the number "zero" to signify "nothing," an erasure of the past; and its circular form to represent "everything," a promise for the future of humanity, art, and technology. Works by Getulio Alviani, Hartmut Bohm, Enrico Castellani, Gianni Colombo, Lucio Fontana, Heinz Mack, Almir Mavignier, Henk Peeters, Otto Piene, George Rickey, Jesus Rafael Soto, Jean Tinguely, Luis Tomasello, and Gunther Uecker in The Art of Zero are selected from the permanent collection of the Neuberger Museum of Art. The Art of Zero is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art of Purchase College, SUNY, and curated by Assistant Curator Avis Larson. July 13 through Sep. 28.

Sheffield Island Lighthouse - Sheffield Island
Through September 28, 2014 - Norwalk

Sheffield Island with its historic 146-year-old lighthouse, beaches and wildlife refuge offers abundant summer fun for visitors. Visitors can board the Seaport Association's 45-foot C.J. Toth catamaran for a cruise to the island then tour the lighthouse, observe wildlife in their natural habitat in the Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge, hunt for shells along the beach, dine on a picnic lunch, play on the lawns around the lighthouse and just have a good time. The lighthouse is open to visitors for daily tours, however, the tower section of the lighthouse is closed for renovations.During your time on the island, you may want to enjoy a picnic lunch you brought along and take in the spectacular view of the harbor from its most recognized gateway. Sheffield Island is a rocky outcrop with rolling terrain and the docking facilities do not meet ADA regulations. Every effort has been made to minimize non-compliance. The gangway leading from the dock to the island is wide enough to accommodate a standard wheelchair. The gangway incline (steepness) is determined by the height of the tide; at low tide it is steeper than at high tide. Due to liability concerns, the Sheffield Island staff is disallowed to assist with lifting or pushing a wheelchair or stroller. It will be important for the physically challenged to travel with a companion abled to assist them. When making reservations, leave contact information that will be available for day of trip as you may need to be contacted if there is a change due to weather conditions. June 26-September 28.
