FiveMyles presents “The Art Life” an exhibition of painting, sculpture, drawing and woodcuts by Otto Neals and Emmett Wigglesworth.
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, 02/10/18, 5-8PM
ON VIEW: 02/10/18- 03/11/18
Although their work differs from each other in its imagery, both Otto Neals and Emmett Wigglesworth address a strong commitment to the shared African American experience.
The two artists exemplify the 18th century German philosopher Herder’s conviction that, “all art is an expression of the experiences of the person who makes it. It is also a communication with those who share the cultural values and knowledge of the group of people to whom the artist, geographically and/or intellectually belongs.” The pleasure of this exhibition is the work’s insistence to communicate these experiences.
The interconnected serpentine forms and jewel-like color-patterns in Emmett Wigglesworth paintings and constructions most frequently use images of people reaching out to those nearby or even to those in an adjacent work. For Wigglesworth this is a reminder that we need to search for, and respond, to the shared spiritual truths that bind us together.
Otto Neals works in a traditional figurative mode using multi-media bronze and marble sculpture, oil and pastels. One may label the work Afro-Romanticism; it expresses a deep belief in the possibility of a state of beauty and purity.
Gallery hours: Thursday – Sunday: 1-6pm.
Get an inside look at the private lives and artistic processes of James Baldwin, William S. Burroughs, Mahmoud Darwish, Joan Didion, Diane di Prima, Vaclav Havel, Gabriel García Márquez, Arthur Miller, Yukio Mishima, Susan Sontag, Alice Walker and more, through inspiring documentaries and films ranging from the 60s to now.

Prized for its fame, elusiveness and brief harvesting season, Boulud Sud is celebrating the black truffle with a decadent four-course wine pairing dinner. Chef Travis Swikard has designed a special menu aiming to showcase the essence and versatility of the Provençal Black Truffle. Between a seasonal menu and delicious wine selections, don’t miss this celebratory dinner as we close out the truffle season.
Boulud Sud is Chef Daniel Boulud’s vibrant Mediterranean-inspired restaurant featuring flavors that travel the entire coastal region from the shores of Southern France to the coast of North Africa and beyond. There is an emphasis on fish and an abundance of vegetables, as well as regional spices and seasonings. The Mid-Century Modern interior, including a spacious bar and lounge, is decorated in tones of sunflower yellow and slate grey. The light-filled space is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, vaulted ceilings, pear wood paneling and terrazzo floors, as well as works by famed artist Vik Muniz. The restaurant, with an entrance on West 64th Street, is adjacent to Bar Boulud and Épicerie Boulud, and just steps from Manhattan’s Lincoln Center.

Inspired by the Beautiful Brain exhibit of neuroscientist/artist Santiago Ramon y Cajal’s drawings currently at NYU Grey Gallery, Art in the Lab is hosting TWO neuroscience themed events. Participants are invited to draw from some of Cajal’s favorite subjects, including slides of the retina, cortex and spinal cord.
The second event on March 8 is in partnership with the Dana Foundation to celebrate Brain Awareness Week.
Art in the Lab started at St. Francis College in 2016 with the support of a Faculty Development Grant. Now in it’s third year, this ongoing series of events mixes art and lab work. Events are always free and open to scientists, artists and the sci/art curious.
Space is limited and always fills up, so please RSVP early.
Basic art supplies are provided, but participants can also bring their own.
