an international Juried Exhibition of 21st Century Sculptural Basketry [link] | Blue Door Gallery, Yonkers
"Traditionally, baskets are thought of as containers designed to hold things. (My) works explore the ways in which these vessels - as sculptures and enclosures - hold ideas rather than objects," so says Nancy Koenigsberg one of over 25 artists from Ireland to Ohio selected to represent 21st Century Sculptural Basketry in this exhibition.
Blue Door Gallery invited artists to submit innovative works in all media that contained weaving as a major component of their structures. Building on the traditions of their artistic forbearers and calling upon their individual transformational creative ideas and passions, these artists have broken ground with the past. As such, New Weaves is an expansion on traditional concepts of basketry; and showcases non-functional shapes using non-traditional materials like ceramic, leather and metal in two and three-dimensional works in a wide range of sizes.

Cleve Gray's Threnody: Forty Years [link] | Neuberger Museum, Purchase
Threnody (1972-73) is a 250-foot-long site-specific painting in 28 panels created by American artist Cleve Gray for the Neuberger Museum of Art on the occasion of its opening forty years ago. Cleve Gray's Threnody: Forty Years celebrates this extraordinary project as part of the Museum's anniversary festivities. For Gray it was significant that the Museum was situated on a university campus. At the time, college students across the country were demonstrating against the conflict in Vietnam, a war that they felt to be unjust and inhumane. An active anti-war supporter himself, Gray saw this as an opportunity to express his hope for humanity's spiritual and emotional healing. Threnody, a lament for the dead on both sides of the war, soars 22 feet high, converting the exhibition gallery into a cathedral with tall vertical forms engaged in a "dance of death and life." Threnody is a "union of opposites," male and female, love and hate, conflict and peace.

The Donald Gallery,
343 Broadway, DobbsFerry
I have always foundthe beauty in the transition of an object. The time just before the newbeginning, the dip when decay has begun but the structure of the object or ideais laid bare. I grew up in rural Vermont. Both of my grand fathers werecarpenters so I spent a good deal of time growing up on construction sights anddriving along old roads to work sites. I was always entranced by the barns andmelting homesteads I saw along the way. Squinting to see people moving in andout of these former monuments to industry. The builders of these structures,though necessity and economy, created these objects: be they buildings, quiltsor fences, these objects, more than any portrait, record those that camebefore. I have watched and, at the best of times, tried to record as a witnessthe changing landscape of my time. This body of work is born from these ideasof disintegration and resurrection. The beauty in the everyday, in the useful,in the space in between.

Exhibit LEE Kui Dae [link] | Canfin Gallery, 39 Main Street, Tarrytown
LEE KUI DAE's reductionist works are symbolic arcs of primitive yet essential worlds of clarity infused with mythology. LEE's esoteric explorations in paint are reflective of his own spiritu al journey and influenced by his Asiatic roots. Through the use of symbolist imagery of the four elements: earth, wind, fire and air, and with a definitive and distinctive palette and recurrent themes of bird, sky and man, Lee reveals the vital core of life's cycles: its birth, decay and ultimate regeneration. Born in a small village in South Korea in 1959, Lee received his degree in art from The University of Seoul. He moved to France in 1995 and received an additional degree in art from the University of Paris. He has since enjoyed a successful and celebrated career. Earning many awards, Lee has exhibited worldwide and his work may be found in both public and private collections. He now resides between Paris and South Korea.

Richard Shindell [link] | Irvington Town Hall Theater
Presented by ITHT and Common Groung Community Concerts. An expatriate New Yorker now living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Richard Shindell is a meticulous craftsman of song whose eight studio albums and 2 live recordings have been revered by critics and fans alike. Innovative, original and occasionally spiritual, Shindell's songs weave tales that interchangeably champion the downtrodden, exalt the disaffected or wax empathetic to those lost to society's fringes. From his first record, Sparrow's Point (1992) to the newest album Not Far Now (2009), Shindell has demonstrated a penchant for songwriting at once passionate and profound. His songs are often slowly and painstakingly crafted until honed to perfection. Conversely, he is also capable of writing tunes that are simply clever and amusing.
