Event Description

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven is pleased to announce Web Versions, its second show at Perspectives… The Gallery at Whitney Center at 200 Leeder Hill Drive, Hamden, Connecticut, south entrance. An artist reception will take place on Saturday, February 23rd from 2 to 4 p.m. There will be an artist talk at 1:30 p.m. and origami artist Benjamin Parker will be demonstrating his unique paper tessellations process.

 

Web Versions was curated by Debbie Hesse and Steve Olsen. According to Hesse, “While the title Web Versions suggests the online realm of virtual interconnectedness, this exhibit explores ways artists embrace the low tech, often labor-intensive material world to present meditations on the passage of time.”

 

Artwork in the show, diverse in media, by Sean Boggs, Kevin Daly, Sarah Beth Goncarova, Mary Judge, Benjamin Parker, Suzan Shutan, Marjorie Sopkin and Thomas Stavovy, share a fascination with repetitive pattern, scale and color to reference traditions of textiles.

Web Versions will be on view through March 30th, 2013. The gallery is open to the public Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4 to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m.

 

For more information about Web Versions and Perspectives...The Gallery at Whitney Center, call the Arts Council at (203) 772-2788.

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

In DC, a Bridge Designed to Soothe Troubled Waters

A deeply reported article in the New York Times delves into the story of creating the 11th Street Bridge Park linking Anacostia with adjacent neighborhoods. The piece features LISC and our DC team’s integral and longtime involvement in a community-centered project that has aimed, from its inception, to nurture connection, growth and vitality without displacing Black residents in the process.

Tackling “the Worst Housing Crisis Since the Great Depression” with Local Strategies and Big Picture Innovation: Q+A with Denise Scott

In a wide-ranging Q+A with Philanthropy News Digest, LISC President Denise Scott describes how the organization has pivoted and refined its strategies to support communities in the face of market shifts, climate disasters, a pandemic and countless systemic barriers to equity. What we need, says Scott, is “creative financing guided by collaboration with local people who are working toward lasting solutions—if we are going to really advance equity in this challenging time.”

Double Down on ‘Local’ to Empower Families and Communities

From pandemic relief to racial equity, success is as dependent on a strong social infrastructure in communities as it is on the dollars that flow through it, writes LISC President Denise Scott, in a new commentary. “To support just and resilient communities, we must invest in the capacity of place-based organizations to plan, execute, measure, adjust and sustain community development gains.”
