John Sloan's City Gals

A Print Selection from the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences

The College of Staten Island and the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences continue their collaboration with an exhibition of the works of John Sloan, a noted early 20th century American artist. Sloan made his most important contribution to the history of American visual culture in his prints, and again in his prints of women. His influence can be tracked in the graphic art of his students, his friends and in those who worked in the following generations. In showing a sampling of his prints with those of his second wife and student Helen Farr Sloan, his student Don Freeman, his friend Cecil Bell, Isabel Bishop, Lucille Haynes, Kay Goldsmith and a spectacular drawing by Reginald Marsh, this exhibition serves as a beginning in the exposition of Sloan's tremendous influence. This exhibition is curated by Nanette Salomon, Professor of Art History, College of Staten Island.

Randy Williams - Mixed Media

"Navigating 2 United States of the Americas: Art Ideas and Books"

"The book constructions were the first steps away from painting. In most cases they are flat and are placed on the walls in a conventional manner. The book constructs are concerned with the immutable concepts of art as a language. At this time I was trying to create an art form that could be read. In these works the books, which we cannot read, act as a metaphor for a verbal language. The wood, rope, paint and other materials exist as a syntax, or phrase in the artwork as a language system. The work also uses books as a device for building a relationship between viewers that are not familiar with contemporary art."
