Faculty Art Exhibition at Skidmore

SARATOGA SPRINGS – The Schick Art Gallery at Skidmore College presents the 2015 Selected Art Faculty Exhibition, featuring new works by John Galt, Doretta Miller, Lauren Sandler and Peter Stake.

The exhibit will run from Thursday, November 5 through Friday, December 13. An opening night reception will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on November 5 at the gallery. On Wednesday, November 11, all four artists will participate in a gallery talk at 4:30 p.m. Schick Art Gallery events are free and the public is welcome.

John Galt’s sculptures combine interest in the human figure, sensitivity to form and movement and a passion for iron and bronze casting. He has been teaching at Skidmore since 1990, and he is actively involved in foundry events like iron-pours, both on and off campus. His work has been exhibited locally and in Europe.

Using miniature toys as actors and her own garden as a stage, Doretta Miller has creation enigmatic scenarios with her paintings. Her work combines an interest in museum dioramas with preoccupations about current events, such as environmental and geo-political tensions. She has been teaching at Skidmore since 1982, and has also taught and curated exhibits in China.

Lauren Sandler’s recent ceramic works are re-creations of common household objects. Though life-sized and realistic in form, the pieces have an obvious lack of utility, showing the ambiguous realm between the literal and metaphoric. She has taught at Skidmore for two years and is also a visiting teacher at Saratoga Bridges.

Peter Stake’s abstract paintings arise from his interest in relationships of light, color and space. Teaching at Skidmore since 1986, he has also served as director of the Schick Art Gallery.

Skidmore’s Schick Art Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, and from 12 to 4 p.m. on weekends.
