MASS MoCA, 1040 MAS MoCA Way
North Adams, MA United States

Nick Cave's ('82 Fiber) newest exhibition at MASS MoCA Until is a visual response to the epidemic of gun violence that is too big and bright to ignore. The installation, which sprawls over a massive hall, is a series of environments made up of vast array of found tchotchkes ranging from lawn jockeys to crystals to a faux garden bedazzled with wind spinners and thousands of ceramic birds, fruits and other images.

MARRIED TO THE LANDSCAPE: A DUO EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS BY AARON WUERKER AND JENNY WUERKER

May 26 - August 20
Nicolaysen Art Museum, 400 E. Collins St.
Casper , WY 82601 United States
+ Google Map

We’ve been painting the Wyoming landscape together for nearly 25 years. For each of us, the need to define an Iconic American landscape has repeatedly surfaced. For Jenny, that means capturing the feeling of stark expanse in large paintings with big skies racing back to meet distant ridges and light stretching to the horizon. In Aaron’s work, the shapes of industrial objects mimic natural formations in the landscape creating silent interactions. Ultimately, a realist perspective serves to celebrate the beauty of common places. In this recent body of paintings, we hope to share a vision of the Western landscape that one might identify the next time they see a massive cloud formation or road signs lined up with the horizon. Biography: Jenny and Aaron Wuerker live outside of Buffalo Wyoming with their teenage children Wolfgang and Maxima. Jenny received her BA from Yale University in 1987, and an MFA from The American University in 1992. Aaron received a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute in 1992 and an MFA from Yale University in 1995. Their work was recently published in the book: Painted Sky: 106 Artists of The Rocky Mountain West, by Ashley Rooney. They own Crazy Woman Fine Art Gallery,…

In association with Charlotte Street Foundation’s Every Street is Charlotte Street program, the KCAI Crossroads Gallery: Center for Contemporary Practice is pleased to present two exhibits opening June 2 and running through August 4. Max Key is a 2005 Charlotte Street Award Fellow and alumni (’96 painting) of the Kansas City Art Institute. The exhibition features two new large-scale paintings. In regards to these works Key states: “My paintings are meta-landfills. Wads of waste. Chewed mounds of collapsing leftovers and juicy catastrophes. It is in our culture of excess and gluttony where I find inspiration and the desire to find beauty and color in that blurry gray area between ‘need’ and ‘want.'” The second exhibit Revolutionary Awakening features the work of Sonie Joi Thompson-Ruffin with Glenn North, poet, & filmmaker, Rodney M. Thompson. The exhibition features two series of works.  The first, in conversation with written words by Glenn North, presents three new works by Ruffin reflecting on what has, or has not, changed in contemporary society as it relates to social activism. The second, My Mother’s Club: March On Kansas City, is a major work being debuted. Inspired by the history of African American women’s social clubs in Kansas City, these…
