Event Description

Three City Gallery artists — William Frucht, Ruth Sack, and Michael Zack — come together to present HORIZON, an appropriately named show for the start of a new year. The group exhibit will be on view January 6 - 29, with an Artists’ Reception on Saturday, January 28, 1pm - 4 pm (Snow Date: January 29.)

The word horizon takes on many meanings — where the earth meets the sky, for example, or the limit of a person’s mental perception, experience, or interest. In that same way, this group show reflects many interpretations of its title, both representational and metaphorical.

Photographer William Frucht looks at a place where our past meets our present. His photographs of the Ellis Island Immigrant Hospital reflect its present condition: half abandoned and half saved, our feelings toward it as conflicted as our relationship with immigration itself. “Almost all of us are immigrants or descended from immigrants — voluntary or not — and as a nation we revere that history while trying to keep it firmly in the past. Yet the past was no different.”

Painter and sculptor Ruth Sack considers “horizon” both literally and conceptually. Her paintings, called Randoms, consist of free-floating forms in a painterly space. If anything, they are anti-horizon as they do not have a horizon line and are not grounded in a sense of a conventional landscape. “The sculptures in this exhibit are a new horizon for me, in that I am pursuing new directions. These works are multi-colored reliefs, a considerable departure from earlier work. In this context, I am broadening my horizons.”

In artist Michael Zack’s Prints on Black Paper, the concept of “horizon” comes in exploring technique and what happens when we take another step forward in the process. As he explains, “often after printing a monotype or mono print, there is enough ink on the plate to pull a second print which is a pale copy of the original and is therefore referred to as a ‘ghost.’ It is always an experiment and I sometimes use that ‘ghost’ as a first step in making an entirely new print, exploring what comes next.”

HORIZON is free and open to the public, January 6 - 29, 2023. An Artists’ Reception will be held on Saturday, January 28, 1pm - 4 pm (Snow Date: January 29). City Gallery is located at 994 State Street, New Haven, CT 06511. Gallery hours are Friday - Sunday, 1pm - 4 pm, or by appointment. City Gallery follows New Haven City’s mask mandate policy.

New Report: A Close Look at the Reality of Community Violence Interrupters

Dr. Kathryn Bocanegra and Dr. Shani Buggs, eminent researchers and experts on the work of community violence intervention, have published, together with LISC, Supporting the Frontline Through Community Healing: Advancing Science on Violence Intervention Outreach and Trauma Exposure. The study, focused on safety efforts in Kansas City, MO, is a deeply researched and compassionate look at the trauma CVI workers confront every day and how to support the field so that practitioners “are protected from the same harms they work to prevent.”

“A Gateway for Possibilities”: Resident Leadership and Community Ownership

LISC's Institute for Community Power has published a new Spotlight examining three leadership development programs designed and implemented by LISC and local partners for distinct communities in different parts of the country: Training the Trainers (T4T) in Houston; the Newark Resident Leadership Academy (NRLA); and Community Connectors in Philadelphia. Each group has leveraged the leadership program to inform and strengthen their work and, in turn, to serve their communities more effectively.

Mobile Home Residents in Washington State Are Calling the Shots After Buying Their Park

Manufactured housing, which 20 million Americans call home, is one of the few affordable housing options in the United States. The residents of two Washington State mobile home communities recently succeeded in purchasing their parks with help from ROC USA and over $2 million in financing from Rural LISC. As a result, they have been able to stabilize their housing costs, upgrade their communities and remain in the places they love.
