Cape Dorset and Points South, Vol. 2
February 12 - March 6, 2016

Beacon, New York - We have been looking forward to presenting Cape Dorset and Points South, Vol. 2   and invite you to join us for the opening reception on Friday, February 12th from 5-7 pm. TheoGanz Studio is located at 149 Main Street and the hours for the exhibition are Friday/Saturday/Sunday from 12 - 5 pm and by appointment by calling 917.318.2239.
This vibrant exhibition features Inuit graphics from the 2014 and 2015 Cape Dorset print releases, as well as a diverse selection of works in various mediums by several Hudson Valley artists.  The complete list of artists - north and south - includes:  Joseph Ayers, Carl Van Brunt, Chantelle Norton, Elana Goren, Barbara Koffsky, Lori Adams, Lori Merhige, Beth Haber, Eleni Smolen and Saimaiyu Akesuk, Shuvinai Ashoona, Cee Pootoogook, Nicotye Samayualie, Pitaloosie Saila and Papiara Tukiki. 
The works in the show - many of them depicting animals - range from the mostly playful and whimsical stonecuts from Kinngait Studios (Cape Dorset) and Chantelle Norton's etchings/aquatints of her pet chickens here in the Hudson Valley (below) to the more somber and dark work  of printmaker Elana Goren. Abstract work is represented by Carl Van Brunt's very recent celestial digital paintings as well as Barbara Koffsky's diminutive pastels with floating blocks of color. Lori Adams' work continues to blossom here with previously unseen photographs; Beth Haber works magic on mylar in her delicate renderings of flowers and fruit while the pairing of Joseph Ayers' mixed media lightbox Morning After the Deluge and his painting, Sora (sky), take on a spiritual aura in the alcove installation. Lori Merhige's commanding gestural sculpture Middle in the front window continues to beckon passersby into the gallery for a brief and welcome respite from the harsh and seemingly unrelenting chaos of the world around us.
While there are just a dozen prints from Cape Dorset on view in this exhibition, we are thrilled to be part of the Dorset Fine Arts network of Inuit art representatives and, as such, TheoGanz Studio has access to any work available in their archives which can be perused on their extensive website.
