      OTHER PLACES
      Draper Experiment by
      Chris Andricola and Jake Foster

      October 4 - November 30, 2019

      Opening Reception: Friday, October 4
      5 - 9 PM during Art Loop

      In the spirit of collaboration and experimentation, artists Chris Andricola and Jake Foster have teamed up to transform the gallery space with domestic objects and props, using their installations, performances, and photography as a means of critiquing modern life. Their work explores the various ways mass media, communication, and consumerist lifestyles disconnect social ties, resulting in a barren disconnection with humanity, nature, and repressed sexuality.

      Andricola’s photography and graphic design work reveals his fascination with 1950s and 1960s American pop culture. His compositions tend to be narrative and cinematic, while Foster’s current body of work reinterprets his family’s photographs into contemporary paintings that analyze the American condition and question the ability to “remember.” Desiring to create a retro-futurist surreal world, their installation references typical familial rooms, classic American culture, kitsch, and excessive consumerism. By subverting the societal norms of traditional American culture, Andricola and Foster disrupt domestic realities and space, and create parodies of a playful dystopia. Visitors are invited to participate in the first Friday Art Loop on October 4 to interact with the artists and props and be photographed in the exhibition. The artists will then install the photos in the gallery as part of the exhibition’s interactive component. 

      Christopher Andricola earned a BFA in Studio Art from Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ. He regularly exhibits his photography at local galleries including the Perkins Center for the Arts and the Markeim Art Center. Chris has worked with notable advertising agencies such as Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners in Philadelphia, PA.

      Jacob Foster is an MFA candidate at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He earned a BA in Art from Rutgers University Camden in 2017, where he was awarded two undergraduate research grants, the Stedman Gallery Purchase Award, and the John J. Gianotti Fine Arts award. His work has been curated by the Head of Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Art and by the Director of Exhibitions at Tyler School of Art. In September 2018, The Noyes Museum of Art at Stockton University hosted a solo exhibition of his work.

      FLANDERS FIELDS: 25 YEARS OF DEPICTING BRITISH TRENCH POETRY

      FLANDERS FIELDS: 25 YEARS OF DEPICTING BRITISH TRENCH POETRY
      Constance Cone

      October 4, 2019 - January 5, 2020

      Opening Reception: Friday, October 4
      5 - 9 PM during first Friday Art Loop


      In 1994, artist Constance Cone heard the Philadelphia Orchestra perform Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem," a dramatic composition commissioned to celebrate the rebuilding of the Coventry Cathedral destroyed in WWII. Stunned by the music's power, a Latin Mass intermingled with writings of poet Wilfred Owen written while he was a soldier with the British troops, and living in the trenches in France during WWI, Cone began to read the verse of the "Trench Poets." This led to a 25-year response in a body of work that includes paintings, prints, and drawings.

      Cone comments, "The music led me to the Trench Poets: Owens, Sassoon, Graves, Thomas, Sorley and Rosenberg. For twenty-five years, with a sidetrack into landscape for a while, I found myself returning again and again to the poetry."

      Curator J. Susan Isaacs comments, "This body of work is the result of what became a long-term project for the artist of reading the poetry and visiting the historical sites of the First World War after listening to Benjamin Britten's War Requiem Opus 66. The poetry that inspired her was created by men who experienced war and understood it to be destructive, horrifying, and something to be avoided. Cone sees parallels between the events of the Great War and those of her own time, from the Vietnam War through to the present day international immigration crisis. Cone's visual responses are lyrical and elegant as well as powerful and disturbing, combining both abstraction and narrative elements throughout."

      Constance Cone was born in New York City and received a BA in Classics from Vassar College in 1970. Three years later, she began photographing, specializing in platinum and palladium printing, a method invented in 1876. Fifteen years later, as she began to experiment with the prints, she continued her art education in drawing, watercolor, and painting. Cone studied at Moore College of Art for two years and then graduated with an MFA in painting and printmaking from the University of Pennsylvania in 1994. She is represented by 3rd Street Gallery in Philadelphia and has shown extensively in galleries and museums across the United States. Cone has received several awards such as the Wellan Memorial Award from the Alexandria Museum Visual Arts Center and was the Purchase Award Winner in the 63rd Annual Delaware Exhibition at the Delaware Art Museum. She is represented at Delaware Art Museum, The Art Gallery of the University of Notre Dame, and Vassar College Art Gallery was well as in corporate and private collections.

      Curated by J. Susan Isaacs

      A catalog accompanies the exhibition with essays by J. Susan Isaacs, Professor of Art History and Curator of the Department of Art + Design Galleries at Towson University, MD and Brian Kreydatus, Professor of Art & Art History at the College of William and Mary, VA.
