Angry King | Lonely King | The Beholder of Love Installation

Angry King | Lonely King | The Beholder of Love by Esteban Castro

Open Space Gallery
On view: October 1 - November 15, 2022

Reception: Thursday, October 20, 2022, 4-6pm

Angry King | Lonely King | The Beholder of Love is a three-panel mural created by SUNY Oneonta Senior, Esteban Castro. Over the course of two weeks, Castro painted this 10 x 45 foot original work on site at the Open Space Gallery. Referencing the long history of public murals and graffiti art, along with his personal experience in fashion design and drawing, he has created three unique pieces that speak to the self-harmful effects of unmitigated anger and the need for love and community to heal and grow. His style, while reminiscent of masters like Basquiat and Herring, is distinct and includes consistent patterns like dashed outlining within steady outlines, crowns, and a seeing heart that make this mural recognizably his.

Ainsley Burrows | The Maroons: Rebellion

The Maroons: Rebellion | Ainsley Burrows

Martin-Mullen Gallery
On view: August 30 - October 15, 2022

Reception: Thursday, September 1, 2022, 5-7pm

The Maroons: Rebellion is an exhibition of eleven works selected from Ainsley Burrows’ broader series of the same title. The Maroons: Rebellion series, his most prolific to date, includes 125 paintings about the fight for freedom by enslaved Africans in Jamaica. These works reveal a shared history that includes the harrowing journey of the Middle Passage, the resilience of the Maroons in their fight for freedom, and the cultural knowledge that was both retained throughout and adapted to these experiences. Ainsley Burrows is a Jamaican-born artist currently working in Baltimore, MD, and Brooklyn, NY. His work explores unwritten histories and the emotional expression of ancestry and contemporary experiences. In these works, he utilizes a technique that he has named “Neo-Chaos” to imprint the turbulence of what he perceives onto the canvas.

Rhea Nowak: Time and Again

Time and Again | Rhea Nowak

Project Space Gallery
On view: August 16 - October 1, 2022

Reception and Artist Talk: Thursday, September 8, 2022, 4-6pm

Time and Again is an exhibition of prints by Rhea Nowak, Professor of Art and Director of the Faculty Center. Showing work created over the course of the past several years, Time and Again is an exploration of memory, interrupted and restarted flow, questioning the relationships between mark and intention, and creating with an open mind and heart. Frequently impressed on handmade paper, Nowak’s prints often combine several printmaking processes. The juxtaposition of new and returning plates and blocks allow for connections over a breadth of time and experience. Many of her works incorporate tactile processes like sewing and collage in addition to the inherent physicality of printmaking. Taken together, this exhibition demonstrates the elasticity of time and the recurring themes in our experiences.
