Jennifer L. Kronowitz Transcendence: Photographs of the Gomez Mill House Landscape

Transcendence: Photographs of the Gomez Mill House opens Sunday, April 27 with 20 works by photographer Jennifer Lauren Kronowitz of Poughkeepsie, NY.

Kronowitz, a self-taught professional, has photographed local productions of The Vagina Monologues and The Rosendale Zombie Festival, and local musicians Jimmy James and Laura Hope and the Ark Tones, for their promotional materials.  Her appreciation for natural beauty is reflected in photographs from rare, precious depictions of wildlife to those of old, toothless men in hula skirts. "What brought me to Gomez Mill House is my love for historic, beautiful places. I fell in love with the grounds and house." says Kronowitz..

2013 Exhibits

May 8 - August 28, 2013

susan c. dessel
american samplers, series 3  (the chicken chronicles, nos. 1-14).

This suite of fourteen drawings are inspired by the food traditions of the Jewish community in New York from the arrival of the first Jewish refugees from Recife, Brazil, who arrived in Nieuw Amsterdam in 1654, to the Jewish and immigrant communities of today. The works convey visually particulars in the challenges faced by women responsible for meeting the requirements of traditions and laws of food preparation and in the continuity of their concerns and dreams as shared among subsequent immigrant groups. The visual language of Dessel's allegorical tale also celebrates the lives of these women by honoring the traditional sampler. Her repetitive pattern of playful lobsters represents the bounty of non-Kosher and is a play on the restrictions experienced by the minority Jewish community in the New World.

The drawings present historical realities that continue to impact our national dialogue on diversity, reflecting the artist's belief that "art gives people freedom to contemplate things they might not feel comfortable talking about in today's charged environment."  With humor, the drawings highlight fears and cultural differences, intermingling, intermarriage, and eventual assimilation, and the xenophobia that has marked the maturing of immigrant communities in the U.S.A. for the past 350+ years.
