Orange Hall Gallery at SUNY Orange
Opening Reception on Nov 4 will feature pianist Geoff Hamburg playing classical and contemporary music. From November 2-20 in Orange Hall Gallery, the exhibit on view will be on a timely, yet seemingly constant topic – war. Titled’ War in the Arts: Redeeming Spirits‘, the goal is to express what war does to the human spirit, the community, the family, ethnic groups, countries, historically through present day, and then to reflect upon that and relate through one’s art form. This is not intended to be political. Artists have used paintings, drawings, sculptures, assemblages, collages, photography, embroidery and fabric, animation, video, and poetry to reflect and relate their personal reactions to war. Also, on Friday, November 3 at 6pm the film Art in the Face of War will be screened in the gallery. The exhibit, reception, and film screening are free and open to the public.
