Drawing From Memory

BE A PART OF THE ART!
Tell a story, make a connection
 
In an age where people use email, texting, and social media to connect and tell their stories, actual human connection becomes more difficult to establish every day. What would happen if we took things offline and actually picked up the phone to connect with someone?
 
“Drawing From Memory,” created by Melissa Sarris and organized by Melanie Cohn, will ask strangers to connect over the phone by calling a toll-free number and telling a personal story of a childhood memory about, “water,” “crossings,” “journeys,” or “the city.” The call will be answered by an artist stationed in the gallery space at the St. George Terminal, who will create a drawing to illustrate or respond to the story. Artists from community partner Art Lab, as well as other local and visiting artists will offer their creative expertise. The completed drawings will be on display in the Culture Lounge from January 8 through March 22, 2015.
 
“Drawing From Memory” invites two strangers to enter into a singular exchange. A participant tells a childhood memory over the phone and the artist listens and creates a drawing based on that memory. The use of the telephone allows for an intimate yet comfortable exchange between strangers. For many people, drawing is a basic activity of childhood. For those who pursue art, drawing becomes a means of skilled expression and translation. “Drawing From Memory,” artists from community partner Art Lab offer their expertise to translate intangible memory into tangible form. The exchange becomes visible; the created drawing is an artifact of the experience that later becomes a gift to the storyteller.

The Edge featuring the work of Ken Martin

 

"One of the subjects I like to photograph is the junction of two opposing things, such as land and water, or solids and air, and explore the boundaries, like life at the edge of something, or the sharp edge of a building, what is at the edge of our nation, or just edgy pictures."

Featured Photographer Ken Martin

Selections From the Permanent Collection

Selections from the permanent collection is an exhibit of artworks that have been acquired by the Staten Island LGBT Community Center from various donors. These works donated by foundations, private donors and the artists themselves form the core of the permanent collection and are normally displayed throughout the Center. This exhibit serves to bring the collection together, for the first time, in the Center’s public space to celebrate the artistic diversity of the LGBT community.
 
The 'Selections from the Permanent Collection' exhibition opens on Saturday, January 10, 2015 with a reception (part of Second Saturday Staten Island) from 6pm – 9pm.
 
The show is open to the public during Center hours, Monday – Friday from 1 to 8 PM, through February 9.

Staten Island OutLOUD’s series on Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird

Staten Island OutLOUD’s series on Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird continues with this free screening of a beautiful film by Polish filmmaker Piotr Kajstura, who is now based in New York City.
Winner of multiple film festival awards, this film combines magical realism with slave folk takes of the Deep South.  It is a lovely way to highlight some of the messages of Mockingbird:  Hope, community, questioning what we think we know, and striving against all odds.  The filmmaker will join us to talk about this unusual film; here’s your chance to enter into a dialogue about a very special project.
Baritone Anthony Turner will be our musical guest; he’ll sing I’ll Fly Away and other 19th century spirituals.  A Staten Island resident, Anthony has sung at the Kennedy Center, toured internationally with Laurie Anderson in Songs & Stories from Moby Dick, performed with Jessye Norman and appeared on the PBS Great Performances series, “Aida’s Brothers & SIsters”.
