Barbara Chase-Riboud Reads from Her New Collection of Poetry, Everytime a Knot is Undone, A God is Released: Collected and New Poems, 1974– 2011
As children, our verbal and visual vocabulary develop through mediated and unmediated experiences with objects, images, media and the adults in our lives. As we begin to express thoughts and create images of our own, they begin with a reinterpretation of what we have absorbed. As if drawing on this early developmental practice the 10 artists featured in this exhibition pull from existing sources to produce new forms, new ideas, and tackle abstract and conceptual issues that move beyond their source materials. This collection of artists pull from a multitude of sources—some from pop cultural icons, and mass produced images, others ritually comb through the detritus of our daily life. Each artist uniquely manipulates and reinterprets their own observations in an ongoing exploration of the self. Some artists explore the self through the lens of history, myth, landscape, and childlike references—others pose questions and new possibilities. What manifests are bold, complex works with embedded narratives. Overall, the works on view encourage the viewer to share a vision in which identity is a landscape where past, present, and future all reside.

Convergences represents the latest installment in the modernist study of space, form, geometry, and color that has become synonymous with Paul Gruhler’s distinguished studio practice. The eleven paintings on display are selections from his acclaimed Ketchum Hill Series. Like recent Gruhler collections, these minimalist abstractions are informed by such visual references as urban planning and architecture, nature, and other scenery familiar to the artist, in particular the mountainous landscapes of Vermont and the Northeast. Subtly layered textures and vibrant color palettes in hues of blue, cadmium red, maroon, and purple have been meticulously executed to create works as captivating for their compositional tension and tonal range as for their meditative elegance.
