Steven Cushner: The Shaped Paintings, 1991-1993
January 12–March 9, 2013
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 12 6:00–8:00pm

Steven Cushner: The Shaped Paintings, 1991-1993, revisits a body of work by an artist who has become one of Washington’s most successful and respected talents. Over an intense three-year period, Cushner forcefully limited himself to an abbreviated palette and a set of simplified organic and gestural elements derived from earlier work. As Cushner neared the completion of each piece it became clear to him that the work could not be contained by a traditional rectilinear format and that the imagery naturally dictated the perimeters of the paintings.

GALLERY HOURS Tuesday–Saturday, 10:00am–5:00pm, and by appointment.


Kini Collins: Anamnesis
Members’ Gallery
January 11, 2013-March 9, 2013

Opening reception, January 11, 2013, 6-9pm

School 33 Art Center is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Lotta Art 2012 Best-in-Show winner Kini Collins.

“Anamnesis is a figure whereby the speaker, calling to mind matters past, whether of sorrow or joy, doth make a recital of them.” J. Smith, Mystical Rhetoric, 1657

In this body of work, the artist is grappling with memories, both forgotten and remembered, memories that arise bidden or unbidden. Collins’ work over the past several years has been an attempt to use memory cascades to make sense of her life experiences. By remembering and reciting the sorrows and joys of her past, she seeks to understand the whole from the related and unrelated parts. This recitation encompasses a single body of work with many components created with tissue paper, ink, wax, charcoal and fire.


Texture: The Person and Nature Curated by Jan Hanvik
Main Gallery
January 11, 2013-March 9, 2013

Opening reception, January 11, 2013, 6-9pm

Artists: George-Ann Bowers, Jenny Zoe Casey, Erin Fostel, Mia Halton, Sandra Jane Heard, Magnolia Laurie, Kenneth Yee

School 33 Art Center is pleased to present Texture: The Person and Nature, a group exhibit curated by Jan Hanvik, Executive Director of the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Hanvik selected artists for this exhibit who emanate multi-texturalities, which alternate between the ineffable and the visceral. All surprise. All bring pleasure. Some sneak up. Some assault. Some express, as one artist statement said, the lack of self-consciousness of a toddler’s mark. Some required obsessive repetitive, probably conscious, maybe painfully conscious, mark making. Yet all, individually and cumulatively, merge the nature that is inside the human with the nature that is outside the human, yet not really outside.
