NYIT Exhibit Showcases Mixed-Media Collages

Through Jan. 8, show features works by Balcomb Greene, Anne Ryan, Charmion Von Wiegand, and Francis Hamabe as well as NYIT faculty, staff and invited artists

New York, N.Y. (Nov. 20)-NYIT Gallery 61 is pleased to present "Collages (1936-2009)," a group exhibition featuring invited artists and NYIT faculty and staff members. The collages have been crafted with a variety of media, including cut, torn and folded paper, digital film, wax, encaustic, painter's tape, photography, fabric, and found objects.

Several well-known artists are represented in the show, including:

  • Balcomb Greene (1904-1990), a charter member of the American Abstract Artists group, whose collage represents the earliest work in the show.
  • Anne Ryan (1889-1954), who started making wood block prints in the early 1940s at William Stanley Hayters studio, Atelier 17, where she met many European artists in exile, including such as Miro, Yves Tanguy, and Matta. In 1946, an exhibition of collages by Kurt Schwitter inspired her to begin her work in collages.
  • Charmion Von Wiegand, (1836-1983), a writer who moved to Russia in 1929 to work for Hearst Newspapers. When she returned to the United States in 1941, she met Piet Mondrian, who encouraged her to pursue a career in art. Ultimately Von Wiegand became president of the American Abstract Artists group.
  • Francis Hamabe (1917-2003), a World War II veteran who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design on the GI bill and taught at the University of Maine in Machais. He was known for his fluid lines, color sense, and puppet shows.

Other artists include: Angela Amoia, Helen Bayona, James DeWoody, David Diamond, Elizabeth Donsky, Donise English, Alexa Grace, Jane Grundy, Martin Harries, Sook Jin Jo, Charles Matz, Larry Moffat, Philomena Marano, Lucille Nurkse, Yuko Oda, Erin O'Keefe, John Roleke, Rachel Saltz, Thaddeus Radell, Cynthia Stroud, Deborah Tint, Magdalena Urbanska, Rozina Vavetsi, Donna Minerva-Voci, Mark Williams, Patty Wongpakdee, and Jack Youngerman. The show runs Tuesday, Nov. 24 - Jan. 8, 2010. The gallery is located at 16 W. 61st St. on the 11th floor. The viewing hours are Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. For information, call 212.261.1562.
