May 25 – June 29 – “The Art of Feast”
The Art of Feast exhibit, featuring the delicious work of Jack Rosenberg along with Elizabeth MacDonald, Ann Mallory and Judy Jackson will be extended at the Silo Gallery until June 29th. This exhibit showcases paintings and ceramics celebrating the rituals of food and drink and feast.
About the four acclaimed artists:
Jack Rosenberg, award-winning artist of New York, and Washington CT. Rosenberg studied at the New York Academy of Art, The Florence Academy of Art, and the Prince Charles Drawing School in London. He has exhibited in solo and group shows in CT, London, New York; has been published in many international publications, most recently in ArtFuse, Art Habens, and the New York Times, among others. Rosenberg also teaches painting at the Washington Art Association. Mr. Rosenberg explains “My recent work, which has many faces—both literally and metaphorically—is a hybrid of traditional and contemporary values and concerns. The variety of my finished paintings reflects my exploratory processes and the many varied and searching interactions I have with each work in progress. It is an evolutionary process without a predetermined outcome.”
Elizabeth MacDonald, who lives in Bridgewater, Connecticut, has been the recipient of numerous awards, and in 1999 received the Governor’s Arts Award in visual arts. She has most recently shown her work at The Century Association in New York City, and has completed commissions for the chapel in New Milford Hospital, and the Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven. Ms. MacDonald received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Chatham College, and she attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
Ann Mallory, whose ceramic work is known for its rugged elegance, simplicity of form and emotional accessibility joins this special group show with a ceramics collection. The shows concept -‘Feast’ – got her thinking anew about generous serving pieces, sculptural tactile vessels for offering bounty…. as well as rugged Contemplation Vessels offering a resting place for the mind while being a focal point within space.
Judy Jackson, who calls New York City home, studied at Smith College, New York University Graduate School, Corcoran School of Art, Penland and Greenwich House Pottery. A founder of Tribeca Potters, Ms. Jackson works in a studio in New York, just outside Manhattan in Long Island City, shared by several other studio potters. She and her husband share a love of beautiful hand crafted objects and travel the world to explore and learn from others.
