Closing Reception of Kindred Spirits and Other Connections
Wednesday 29th Apr, 2020
The Levy and Daniel Families Art Gallery at the Holland Family Building787 Delaware Ave. Buffalo, NY 14209
The Jewish Community Center is excited to showcase the work of local artist Cornelia Dohse-Peck. Kindred Spirits and other connections will be on exhibit in the Levy and Daniel Families Art Gallery at the JCC Holland Family Building, 787 Delaware Ave, March 8 – April 29, 2020.
Kindred Spirits and other connections displays Dohse-Peck’s use of art as a medium to express her thoughts and educate the community on topics that are important to her. Her on-going concerns about environmental crises led naturally to the centerpiece of this show. She has chosen to take advantage of the dynamic, curved space in the Levy and Daniel Families Art Gallery to address fears about the pollution of water. Using the space to mount a large scale mixed media collage measuring 56 inches by 182 inches, she will incorporate found and purchased objects, paint, quotations and drawings into this focal piece, a blue whale. The whale emerged from several years of work on art exploring man-made versus nature topics, focusing on plastics, which gradually developed into an exploration of water-related issues.
Join us for a closing reception and Silent Auction on Wednesday, April 29 beginning at 6 pm. Community members will be invited to bid on the 52 individual canvases that make up the whale, as well as her other art pieces, with a portion of sales being donated to Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, and can purchase the other art pieces.
