Postales Mestizas:
An Emerging Installation by Catalina Barroso-Luque

January through May, 2014

Over the next five months, the circulating gallery on the main reading room floor of the Institute Library will gradually be transformed into a display of
Postales Mestizas, by Catalina Barroso-Luque, with a new image from the series installed each week from now through May.
The artist has fashioned these small-scale works out of collaged, collected post-cards and other found images, and her own discarded photo-prints. They are an intuitive recycling of the artist's physical and mental imagery that aims to bring into question the boundaries between personal and collective memory, as well as established notions of  cultural  aesthetics.

Currently on exhibit through the end of February in the Gilbert Gallery in the Main building are
works by Barbara Grossman.
The reception is February 15th from 5-7pm.

Barbara Grossman's paintings and oil stick drawings depict the interplay of women in interiors. They are characterized by intense color, multiple patterns, and dynamic spaces that are simultaneously deep and shallow. She is deeply involved in the tension between the dynamics of the luminosity of color and the folding and torque of space that observation and experience reveals. Each configuration is a renewed exploration of the visual language. If there is a narrative, the viewers are at liberty to determine that for themselves.

Barbara Grossman was born and raised in New York City where she attended the High School of Music and Art and then Cooper Union from which she earned her BFA in 1965. She studied at Yale Norfolk and at the Academie der Kunst, Munich, Germany (Diplomate). Grossman has shown extensively in the United States and was a member of the Bowery Gallery in New York for 37 years. Barbara Grossman has been a visiting artist and critic at Boston University, American University, Brandeis, Dartmouth, Vermont Studio Center, Chautauqua School of Art and many others. She has taught at University of Pennsylvania, Western Connecticut State University, and most recently was on the faculty of the Yale School of Art.

She currently lives and works in Connecticut.

The exhibit can be seen from 8 to 4 M-F (and on weekends from 12-3 by ringing the buzzer at Main building's door).
