CHERYL GOLDSLEGER: Recent Works

Goldsleger’s works are inspired by relationships between location and territory, between micro detail and macro expanse, and between order and chaos. Using a highly nuanced palette of whites, greys, blacks and muted colors, these new works deconstruct reality into the two-dimensional plane.

Although rooted in reality, these mixed media paintings and drawings are constructed in the negative and developed in layers blurring edges and reconfiguring form. Drawing upon eternal themes, these works suggest a sense of beauty and tragedy.

There was a whole collection made: Photography from Lester and Betty Guttman at the Smart Museum of Art

An extraordinary collection of 830 photographic works spanning from 1844 to 2012, given as a bequest to the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, forms the basis of  “There was a whole collection made: Photography from Lester and Betty Guttman” exhibition.

There was a whole collection made mines the Estate of Lester and Betty Guttman’s 2014 gift of over eight hundred photographic works by 414 artists to the Smart Museum, essentially establishing a major new resource for the public as well as scholars of the history and theory of photography.

The exhibition draws extensively from the collection, which the Guttmans built over 31 years, and includes rare vintage prints by pioneers of the medium like William Henry Fox Talbot and David Octavius Hill; modernworks by Hannah Höch, Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, Brassaï, Berenice Abbott, and Helen Levitt; contemporary classics by Diane Arbus, Malick Sidibé, Chuck Close, and Carrie Mae Weems.

“Cats in Hats” will be on view at the Michele and Donald D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts and will feature over 40 original works by members of the Western Massachusetts Illustrators’ Guild. The group includes some of the region’s best-known illustrators, including Diane deGroat, Ruth Sanderson, and Jane Yolen, among others. The artistic styles employed by the group’s members range from children’s books to fantasy art to editorial pieces and beyond, and this diversity of methods and the size of its membership make the group a dynamic and active resource for illustration.
