Campus of Dutchess Community College
53 Pendell Road, Poughkeepsie, NY

October 7 - November 1, 2013

Opening Reception:
Wednesday, October 9, 5 - 6:30pm 

100 Artists/ 100 Dreams is an international dream exploration project focusing on recurring, prophetic and creative dreams of visual artists, performers and musicians.  The project consists of a Film, an Exhibition, and an Installation.  The first installment, The Film, premiered October 2011 at Stella May Gallery Theatre in Kingston, NY.  The third installment, The Installation, will be a traveling dream like interactive environment that showcases the documentation of the project journey to be unveiled fall of 2014.      

100 Artists/ 100 Dreams The Exhibition is the second installment and features art by participating project artists.  A corresponding concert will be held during the O+ Festival, October 11 – 13, 2013, Kingston, NY, featuring a sound installation with live performance by project artist Lisa Barnard Kelley.  Time and location to be announced as part of the O+ line up and Ione’s 18th Annual Dream Festival occurring October to December, 2013.   

O+ Festival is a three day festival of art, music and wellness.  The Festival transforms several blocks of Kingston’s Uptown Stockade District into a public art community with compelling and thought-provoking contemporary art and music. 

Ione’s Annual Dream Festival is an international celebration of dreams and dreamers curated by Kingston based author and dream facilitator Ione.  This festival has taken place yearly since 1996 and is dedicated to celebrating the deeply creative aspect of dreams and the phenomenon of dreaming itself.  Music, dance, visual arts, performance, dream telling, literary readings take place in "real" spaces in many countries and virtually with an ongoing Dreamers’ Blog, live streaming broadcasts and telematic performances.  Ione’s Annual Dream Festival is a project of Deep Listening Institute founded by pioneer composer Pauline Oliveros.   

100 Artists/ 100 Dreams curated by artist and arts advocate Sadee Brathwaite of La Leona Arts, was first conceptualized in 2009 as a result of Brathwaite’s participation in Ione’s Annual Dream Festivals since 2004.  The project poses the questions, if artists are the visionaries of our communities, what do their dreams say about our society? And are artists in different communities in the country and around the world having similar dreams?  What do these dreams say about our global society?    

100 Artists/ 100 Dreams The Exhibition will display a mixture of painting, drawing, collage, photography, mixed media, and sculpture.  Featured New York artists include Bardet Wardell of Stone Ridge, Lisa Barnard Kelley of Kingston, Matt Maley of New Paltz, and Ione.  Other featured artists include Kathleen McHugh of Seattle, WA, Suzanne V. Paddock of Lynch Station, VA, and Toni Thomas of Newark, NJ.

The artist is cast as a powerful figure, a visionary, in 100 Artists/ 100 Dreams.  Through participating in this unique long term project artists are building a community that recognizes and acknowledges that dreams are a powerful source of creativity.  By meeting again, and again, through the different installments, local, regional, national and international artists form multicultural showcases, and discuss one of the most basic mental functions that connects us all, regardless of culture, heritage or ethnicity…our dreams. 

Project participation is Ongoing.  Visual art, music, and performance accepted.  Contact Sadee for more information and an application.

Chloe Valentine @ Gallery 291, Opens Saturday August 3rd!

Wednesday, Jul 31: Chloe Valentine @ Gallery 291, Opens Saturday August 3rd!
Posted by Sadee

La Leona Arts and Gallery 291 presents Chloé Valentine

Exhibition on View: August 3 - September 30th, 2013

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 3rd, 5 - 7pm

Gallery 291
291 Wall St (Clermont Bldg), 2nd Fl, Suite 2A
Kingston, NY

845-340-8625

Hours:
Tuesday - Friday, 10am to 6pm
Saturday 9am - 12pm

The gallery, run by Jipala Kagan of Transpersonal Acupuncture, typically showcases bi-monthly exhibits by local Hudson Valley artists.  Featured work is considered peaceful, reflective, inspiring, and contemplative, speaking to the suite of holistic practitioners whose offices surround the gallery. 

Chloé Valentine is a self taught artist that weaves her creative expressions through drawing, painting, collage and fashion.  She incorporates old and new objects into her decoupage and assemblages, building pieces that are intriguing and meditative.  Oftentimes one can find beads, pieces of woven basket, washers, nails, glass and bones in Valentine’s work. 

Images of Mother Nature, animals, and shiny, pretty, dark and light things invite the viewer to explore the juxtapositions of mystery and fancy.  Each piece is special and meaningful, as some of the found objects have lived with the artist for up to 20 years before finding their way into new creations.
 
Valentine, a natural entertainer, Co-Hosted and Co-Produced the TV Show, Apocalypse VARGA, for three and a half years.  Apocalypse VARGA was the brainchild of Gallerist and Artist Christina Varga based in Woodstock, NY.  During that time, Valentine also Co-Developed and Co-Produced a three day art and music festival called the Woodstock World Peace Project featuring thirty bands and over sixty artists.  Her persona, a blend of her fondness for fashion and art, is crafted by select dress designs and ensembles.  Each article of clothing, and accessory, adds color and form to the overall composition.  This desire for arranging shapes and imagery reflects Valentine’s innate ability for putting together and refashioning the old, beautiful, and transient into something new and surreal.

All my Abes by Suzanne V. Paddock

Tuesday, Apr 16: All my Abes by Suzanne V. Paddock
Posted by Sadee

This show is absolutely fabulous!

Fun, quirky, & introspective... 

All my Abes by Suzanne V. Paddock

Suzanne's work depicts unique moments and focuses on the emotional threads triggered by intimate and public relationships, memories, irony, loss, and death.  She creates figures and scenes that convey real and fictional conversations.  

Early 2012, Suzanne moved to Central Virginia.  Her series depiction of President Abraham Lincoln, first developed when she resided in Kingston, NY has propelled her into a new arena of career success.  Featured in many local media outlets, Suzanne has immersed herself in the arts culture of her new home, and is actively pursuing her love of creating realistic and surrealistic three dimensional stories on two dimensional surfaces.

View Suzanne's show On Display @ 11 Broadway, The Mansion House Storefront until May 31st.
