The Board of the Art Alliance is excited to announce this Exhibition Schedule for 2021. Our shows this spring in the Art Center will be hybrid events with viewing in-person by appointment and a virtual component.

This is an ambitious schedule and we need VOLUNTEERS to make it happen. Tasks include helping to install exhibitions, receive and return work, and coordinate calls for entry and advertising with staff. Additionally for shows in the Art Center help is needed in repairing and painting walls. This is a great way to get to know other artists in our organization and contribute to our success!  To volunteer please send an email to artalliance05@gmail.com.

With the closing of our Downtown Gallery we lost some exhibition space.  Fortunately our friends at the Kish Expect More Store on S. Allen St. have invited us to use their beautiful lobby and offices for exhibitions.  The months of May and June will feature our Members Show. Other months will be available for solo or group shows and we will be sending more information about this later.

We are also scheduling shows for the Downtown Improvement District office in the MLK Plaza. It is a great space with plenty of wall space and good lighting. For more information on having a show of your work at the DID please email us at artalliance05@gmail.com.

Penn State Anderson Lecture Series, Spring 2021

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State School of Visual Arts announced its spring 2021 lineup for the John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series, which will be presented via Zoom and is free and open to the public. Pre-registration for each lecture is required via the links below.

Lewis Hyde, “The Art of Forgetting”

Lewis Hyde is a poet, essayist, translator, and cultural critic with a particular interest in the public life of the imagination. His 1983 book, “The Gift,” illuminates and defends the non-commercial portion of artistic practice. “Trickster Makes This World” (1998) uses a group of ancient myths to argue for the disruptive intelligence that all cultures need if they are to remain lively and open to change. “Common as Air” (2010) is a spirited defense of our “cultural commons,” that vast store of ideas, inventions, and works of art that we have inherited from the past and continue to enrich in the present.

Read more about Lewis here

Hyde’s most recent book, “A Primer for Forgetting,” explores the many situations in which forgetfulness is more useful than memory — in myth, personal psychology, politics, art, and spiritual life. A MacArthur Fellow and former director of undergraduate creative writing at Harvard University, Hyde taught creative writing and American literature for many years at Kenyon College. Now retired, he lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife, the writer Patricia Vigderman. Hyde is a trustee of the MacDowell Colony and a founding director of the Creative Capital Foundation.

Adébayo Bolaji, “Following the Line”

Adébayo Bolaji is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in London, England. He has a background in theater, having trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama in London. He also holds a law degree from London Guildhall University.

Read more about Adébayo here

At the center of Bolaji’s practice is the dialogue of change and the focus of the individual within a connecting society, whether that be anthropological, religious, historical, or popular culture. The use of the vibrant and metaphorical language is a crucial element in his work, helping to narrate a different story within each painting, allowing for the viewer to take an active role in the works. His works are expressed in different mediums, from mainly painting to sculpture, film and theater. Bolaji has exhibited internationally in London, Zurich and Berlin, along with artist residencies in New York and Margate, including an artist residency with Yinka Shonibare MBE Guest Projects. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Forbes, Architectural Digest, DAZED, and the Financial Times. He is a published poet and the founder and artistic director of Ex Nihilo Theatre Group.

Linda Weintraub, “‘I’ and ‘Eye’: Creative and Sensory Innovation in Eco Material Art”

Linda Weintraub has supported controversial vanguard art as a curator, educator, artist and author of several popular books about contemporary art. Weintraub’s most recent focus explores the timely intersection between contemporary art and ecology. The books exploring this burgeoning art movement include: “What’s Next? Eco Materialism & Contemporary Art” (2018), “To Life! Eco Art in Pursuit of a Sustainable Planet” (2012), and “Avant-Guardians” (2007), a series of textlets that include EcoCentric Topics: “Pioneering Themes for Eco-Art;” “Cycle-Logical Art: Recycling Matters for Eco-Art;” and “EnvironMentalities: Twenty-two Approaches to Eco-Art.”

Read more about Linda here

Weintraub applies environmental concerns to her personal life by managing a sustainable homestead where she practices permaculture. She is also the author of “In the Making: Creative Options for Contemporary Artists and Art on the Edge” and “Over: Searching for Art’s Meaning in Contemporary Society.” She served as the director of the Edith C. Blum Art Institute located on the Bard College campus where she toured many of the 50 exhibitions she curated and published more than 20 catalogues. Weintraub was the Henry Luce Professor of Emerging Arts at Oberlin College, and currently teaches in the Nomad M.F.A. program at the University of Hartford. Her forthcoming publication is “WHO DO YOU EAT?”

Sonya Clark, “These Days. This Country. This History.”

Sonya Clark, born in Washington, D.C., to a psychiatrist from Trinidad and a nurse from Jamaica, is an artist and educator who uses the language of textiles, politics of hair, and commonplace materials to honor her ancestors and address race, justice, and historical memory. Clark is a professor at Amherst College, where she received one of her undergraduate degrees and was more recently awarded an honorary doctorate. Her formal art education came from obtaining a master of fine arts degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art and a bachelor of fine arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. For a dozen years, she resided in Richmond, Virginia, and chaired the Craft/Material Studies Department at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Read more about Sonya here

Her work has been exhibited and collected in more than 400 museums and galleries globally. Her dedication to the legacy of crafted objects and the embodiment of skill comes from her maternal grandmother, who was a tailor, and the many makers she has studied with in her travels to more than two dozen countries. She is the recipient of a number of awards, including United States Artists, Rappaport Prize, Pollock Krasner, Art Prize, Anonymous Was a Woman; and residencies, including Black Rock Senegal, Red Gate in China, Camargo in France, Rockefeller Bellagio in Italy, Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Yaddo in New York, and an Affiliate Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. Her work has been favorably reviewed in several publications, including The New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sculpture Magazine, Artforum, Los Angeles Times, Hyperallergic, Mother Jones, Huffington Post, and Art in America.

Community-Inspired Art Display at 3 Dots Downtown

2021 Inaugural Art Exhibition

– Expressions of Interest (EOI)

State College, Pa.– The Borough of State College and 3 Dots Downtown are seeking artists to respond, to highlight the vibrancy and resilience diversity brings to the State College area. The Borough’s Office of Community Engagement and 3 Dots Downtown are collaborating for the first time on a rotating art exhibition in the downtown area which will comprise local artists conveying ‘what diversity means in this community.’

Applications to be submitted no later than January 31, at Noon EST.

Community members were recently asked “What makes State College a vibrant and resilient community?” The responses had one common theme: Diversity. State College residents come from all over the world to share their food, culture, perspectives, and their identities with the community. Because of this, both organizations encourage representation from commonly marginalized communities in society, such as, but not limited to: people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, persons with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ community. These communities must be represented to ensure this initiative is successful and strongly encourage submissions from individuals who identify with these communities.

The selected artist/s are required to provide a series of large-scale artworks to be displayed in the interior windows at 3 Dots Downtown (137 East Beaver Avenue). The Office of Community Engagement has received a small grant for this project and will be providing $500-$1000 in remuneration (depending on the installation).

The first exhibition is planned for the months of February and March 2021, followed by a second artist’s exhibition April and May 2021. Both organizations will work with you to ensure professional lighting and hanging installation are appropriate to your artworks, and that your work is secure.

Criteria
· 2D Artwork – painting, drawing, photography, printworks, etc.
· The artist must reside in the Borough of State College or surrounding areas to be eligible.

Application Guidelines
· Photo examples, number & dimensions of artworks
· Short biography about yourself and your medium
· Brief statement on why you’re interested in participating in this initiative

Applications to be submitted no later than: January 31 at noon EST

For submissions and questions, please contact Natalie Vercillo at:
Email: nvercillo@statecollegepa.us  //  Tel: (484) 560-1397
