IN GALLERY 1: Elizabeth Arnold- Some Memories Fade
February is traditionally the month BAU grants a solo exhibition to an outside artist in its
large main gallery space. This year that honor goes to Elizabeth Arnold. Her work often
centers around found objects like wood or bone, archetypal symbols that reference a
shared evolution. She creates works that access interior spaces, the in-between
landscape of dreams, that primary process domain where associative creativity lives
and where waking life’s symbols gain a condensed potency.
Elizabeth Arnold is a mixed-media artist and clinical psychologist, based in the Hudson
Valley and NYC.
IN THE BEACON ROOM: John Richey- Blue By You
Brooklyn based artist, John Richey’s hand-drawn video animations and cyanotypes combines
elements of chance and flexibility into a labor-intensive process that grapples with the
transformative nature of information retention and loss. Working back-and- forth between
different combinations of hand-made and digitally fabricated elements, his installation
investigates the physical or conceptual glitches that occur in the spaces between the analogue
and the digital. Each performance-based animation depicts a luminous grid pattern infinitely
floating and falling into a limitless void. The vivid cyanotypes speak to formal elements of line,
pattern, light, space, and movement.
This is the 158 th consecutive exhibition at BAU Gallery. Ongoing through March 4th
