Photo Illustration by Dan Chiamis; Scratchboard Etchings by Beth Filson

August 28, 2015 - August 29, 2015 - All Day at Hosmer Gallery at Forbes Library
20 West St
Northampton

Hosmer Gallery at Forbes Library, 20 West St., Northampton MA.

Reception: August 5, 5-7 PM.

Beth Filson is a writer and self-taught artist whose work is often featured in the art brut or outsider art community. Her simple etchings on scratchboard emerged when language failed her. “Grief and Resurrection” is the product of this time. Beth has been exhibited in a number of galleries throughout Georgia and her art has appeared in various magazines including The Perch, and The National Council Magazine. She is an independent consultant for MA Department of Mental Health piloting trauma-informed approaches for engaging people in extreme distress. She makes her home in Western Mass.

Dan Chiamis’s Still Lives Series is a set of photo illustration portraits of dolls and figurines taken at second hand stores.  Since ancient times, dolls have played a central role in magic and religious rituals, or used as representations of a deity. Dolls have also been toys for children and collected by adults, for their nostalgic value, beauty, historical importance or financial value. Dolls have traditionally been made as crude, rudimentary playthings as well as with elaborate, artful design. They have been created as folk art in cultures around the globe, and in the 20th century, art dolls began to be seen as high art. A doll is not simply an impersonal play object. Children, and by extension many adults, become attached to their dolls and share with them their deepest wishes, sorrows, and joys. Adoll is given a name and an identity and a life of its own. Dolls often cannot, therefore, simply be thrown out when the age of play has passed.

al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here

August 29, 2015 - 10:30 am - 4:30 pm at Art Gallery, Hampshire College Library
893 West Street
Amherst

The Hampshire College Art Gallery will host the traveling exhibition, Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, from June 17 through September 30, 2015. The exhibition of 100 limited edition artists’ books, prints, and broadsides was created in response to the bombing of Al Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad in March 2007. The diverse group of artists from Europe, North American and the Middle East reveal a wide range of creative responses to the event. Al Mutanabbi Street, named after the classical 10th century Arab poet, had been the center of literary, intellectual and cultural life in Baghdad for centuries.

Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here, “is a tribute to a street that grows into a large and archetypal symbol and spatial metaphor for books. Situated in Baghdad, the city of the Arabian Nights, and in the oldest civilization that brought humanity to learning through writing, al-Mutanabbi Street is a call for all to regain Baghdad’s cultural luster instead of letting it fade in violence, greed, exploitation and corruption in a wicked trajectory of dictatorship, invasion, occupation, and comic but dangerous puppets. (Muhsin al-Musawi’s preface to Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here: Poets and Writers Respond to the March 5th, 2007, Bombing of Baghdad’s “Street of the Booksellers” edited by Beau Beausoleil and Deema Shehabi, 2012)

Two of the participating artists, Liz Chalfin and Cathy DeForest, will speak at the opening reception for the show on June 18th at 5:00 pm in the Gallery. DeForest’s work “Our Immortal Soul” was recently selected for the Guild of Book Workers exhibition entitled “Vessel.”  Liz Chalfin, artist and printmaker, is the founder and director of Zea Mays Printmaking. We are excited to have their creative and passionate voices at the opening of this important exhibition.

The exhibition will conclude on September 28th at 4:30pm with a faculty panel addressing some of the questions raised by the artworks, and putting those questions into political, religious, social and artistic context.

All events are free and open to the public. The library gallery is open Monday – Friday, 10:30am -4:30pm and is located on the lower level of the Hampshire College Library.
