  Studios and Galleries 2012
Saturday May 5, 10:00am - 4:00pm

In the gallery at Miss Porter's School, Farmington:

Now on exhibit from May 1 through graduation on June 1 is a show by two artists,
Janice Nowinski and Kyle Staver

Nowinski and Staver take this opportunity to bring their Boys to the Girls of Miss Porter's.

Frolicsome or pensive, muscled or resting, they come in many sizes and attitudes ready to engage and confound. Nowinski's Boys are paint on canvas. Some originate from her personal observations while others from re-imagining Boys throughout the History of Art. Staver uses a variety of materials  and printing methods to explore her Boys.  Etchings, linocuts, and drypoint are the tools of her investigations. Together Staver and Nowinski constitute a Woman Art Maker's take on Boys as motif.

In Manchester CT: including GHAA photo students mentored by Christine Breslin!

At Real Art Ways Cinema:

Gerhard Richter Painting

One of the world's greatest living painters, the German artist Gerhard Richter has spent over half a century experimenting with a tremendous range of techniques and ideas, addressing historical crises and mass media representation alongside explorations of chance procedures. The first glimpse inside his studio in decades, Gerhard Richter Painting is exactly that: a thrilling document of the 79-year-old's creative process, juxtaposed with rare archival footage and intimate conversations with his critics and collaborators.
"An art film in the literal sense, German helmer Corinna Belz's intelligently assembled observational docu Gerhard Richter Painting offers fascinating insight into the working process of the famed contemporary artist as he prepares a series of abstract canvases." -Alissa Simon, Variety
"Each swipe covers the old painting and reveals a new composition. Watching this can be fascinating, even exciting. After all, it prompts a fundamental movie question: What happens next?" -Rachel Saltz, New York Times
