NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – The Lazarus Gallery at United Hebrew of New Rochelle is showcasing “Art Fired Up,” a collection of work showing the creative possibilities of “fired up” art in fused glass, cast glass, painted and glazed stoneware, ceramics, lamp-worked glass, mixed media, resin, glass, brass and encaustics through March 7, 2016.
“Art Fired Up” features the work of 20 artists from across the New York metropolitan region, drawn from a collaboration between United Hebrew and ArtsWestchester, Blue Door Gallery, Bullseye Glass Company, Gallery 66 NY, GlassRoots, the Mamaroneck Artists Guild, RiverArts, Silvermine Art Center, Upstream Gallery and The Clay Art Center. The exhibition consists of 40 works including sculptures and paintings in both figurative and abstract forms, wall art and glass.
The exhibition was organized by Robin Zane, curator of the Lazarus Gallery at United Hebrew, and Jodi Moise, gallery adviser and curator of the art program and collection at Montefiore Medical Center. Zane describes the show as an exploration of contemporary practices in glass, clay and other materials in combination with heat.
“When planning an exhibition for the Lazarus Gallery we are mindful of our audience," said Zane. We begin with colors and materials that create texture that engage our residents, their families and staff. This exhibition incorporates works with cracked surfaces and shiny appearances—art that is three-dimensional, textural and tactile. It is our hope that the exhibition will remind viewers of precious experiences, recent and past,” .
Artists in the show include Anna Booth, Louise Cadoux, Kelley Donahue, Barbara Deutsch, Barbara Galazzo, Carla Goldberg, Mitchell Goldberg, Helen Gurny, Helayne Friedland, Kristin Javier, Gina Kingsley, Annette DeLucia Lieblein, Elizabeth Murphy, Alison Pascoe, Tommy Rush, Susan Stair, Mitchell Visoky, Judith Weber, Madeline Wilson and Vicky Youngman.
The exhibit is free and open to the public daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at United Hebrew’s Lazarus Gallery, 391 Pelham Road, New Rochelle.
