City Gallery Members Celebrate Open Source 2021, a Visual Arts Festival

Artspace’s Open Source 2021 is the perfect chance for City Gallery to showcase its eclectic mix of visual artists in a month-long group show, on view from October 1 - October 31. The show, OPEN SOURCE @ CITY, will feature work by 17 member artists and includes Open Source Festival Receptions on Saturday, October 23, and Sunday, October 24, from 1PM to 5PM.

City Gallery is a member-run gallery featuring contemporary work in a wide range of visual media: painting, sculpture, photography, papermaking, printmaking, and mixed media. Current members include:

Judy Atlas, painting, monotype & collage
Meg Bloom, sculpture
Joy Bush, photography
Phyllis Crowley, photography
Jennifer Davies, fiber art, monotype
Roberta Friedman, painting & collage
William Frucht, photography
Joyce Greenfield, painting
Rita Hannafin, fiber art

Susan Newbold, painting and printmaking
Tom Peterson, photography
Ruth Sack, painting & sculpture
Michael Zack, painting, printmaking

City Gallery’s exhibits rotate on a monthly schedule. In addition to regular shows of members’ work, the gallery occasionally exhibits work by guest artists and helps make New Haven a vibrant regional center for the arts. Recent special exhibits have included A Tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Legacy & Rupture, Forbidden Memory, and the current show, September Pop Up.

The Gallery is distinguished by a modern yet intimate setting that’s ideal for solo exhibitions, and a mutually supportive culture that includes monthly members-only critiques in order to help its fellow artists develop their work and test out new ideas.

Members are carefully selected for their accomplishments as artists, their ability to commit to maintaining a successful member-run gallery, and their fit with the group. All City Gallery artists have distinguished resumes and have exhibited widely, and many also teach in the New Haven artistic community. While the membership is deliberately kept small, the gallery is always looking for opportunities to attract diverse artists from the community as either guest exhibitors or members.

Open Source 2021 Festival (formerly City-Wide Open Studios) is New Haven-based Artspace’s annual visual arts showcase, happening on Friday, October 15 through Sunday, October 24. This expanded virtual and in-person showcase features painters, sculptors, filmmakers, and photographers from New Haven and across the State of Connecticut.

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.”
