About the Juror

James Farrah moved to this area from Arizona. There, he was the head of the MESA Arts League Critique group and the Phoenix Art Group where he led art critiques. His expertise is in many mediums, but focuses on watercolor. Although his work covers a wide range of subjects, Farrah’s current focus is using children’s toys and artist’s manikins for subject material. In addition to being colorful and fun, they are wonderful tools for storytelling. He hopes the paintings evoke a sense of innocence and nostalgia. Farrah graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a BFA in painting, photography, and graphic design. Jim is a signature member of the AWS, NWS, NAPA, AWA and WFS. He also taught college level art in Arizona.

Reckoning 

/'rek(ǝ)niNG/

art exhibition

  • The action or process of calculating or estimating something.
  • A person's view, opinion, or judgment
  • A bill or account, or its settlement
Reckoning? I reckon.
Wreckin? I reckon it could be.
Can you attest? I reckon, it is.
They're not the ‘Sweet Valley High’ twins; but then again, neither is she Regina George. Well, because you see, they've identified as “poor” too. Farm-raised.
And She believes it well.
And so, I question the usefulness of your poverty as necessary entertainment as enough for distraction.
Can you attest to the usefulness of your making?
Yes. I am reckoning. It is.

–– Notes from a Black girl who sings like a white girl singing like a Black girl, 2018

This exhibit takes up the question: what does it mean to reckon with the past and the ways it manifests in the present? How can such manifestation act as a practice of reckoning that provides new insights into how we imagine and engage to the past? What do the politics of reckoning entail? What forms of accountability are deemed necessary of artists, of citizens? And what new social and creative worlds might be made visible and viable after such a reckoning?This exhibit features the work of a number of artists across disciplines whose work function as modes of reckoning. Living in an age of consequence, what accounts need to be settled in order to activate transformation(s)?From the deepening crisis of climate change, to ecological collapse, to warfare within school walls, to contemporary debates over nations’ borders, democracy, race, gender, sex, and class inequality we encounter a moment of profound precarity, uncertainty, and unknowing. For artists, these crises pose a unique challenge, namely, what does it mean to make art in this moment?

About the Juror

Kathleen Kase Burk

Kathleen Kase Burk has exhibited her drawings in regional and national shows for over thirty-five years, winning many awards. Her works are included in many public and private collections, such as Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts, Del Mar College (TX), University of North Dakota, Pennsylvania College of Technology, Westmoreland Museum of American Art, and Parkersburg Art Center (WV). She received a BA degree in English from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1972 and an MA degree in Art, also from IUP, in 1980. She has taught art in a variety of settings, including the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for the Arts, visiting artists program through PA Council on the Arts, and at Bishop Carroll High School in Ebensburg from 1991 until 2009.

Primarily a still life artist, Ms. Burk’s extremely realistic pencil drawings explore the effects of light on arrangements of common objects. Her interest in design, particularly grids and centralized geometric constructions, gives them an abstract quality. “There’s a sense of stillness and contemplation in this way of working,” she says, “and the repetition of forms, building to a complex whole, is engaging, whether you’re looking at recognizable objects or abstract structures.”
