CALDWELL – The Mueller Gallery at Caldwell University will present two exhibitions through Wednesday, Nov. 30.
“Amanda Church and Doreen McCarthy: Advice To The Lovelorn” and “James Waller: Cracked Pot” opened Wednesday, Oct. 26 with artists’ talks.
Admission to the exhibitions is free and open to the public.
Gallery director Suzanne Baron said the name of the exhibit “Amanda Church and Doreen McCarthy Advice to the LoveLorn” was taken from the 1933 American pre-code film of the same name. “Advice to the Lovelorn” also served as the inspiration for a satirical advice column that appeared in Spy Magazine in the 1990s by the controversial American feminist academic and social critic Camille Paglia.
Church has been showing her work throughout the United States and Europe for more than 20 years, with solo exhibitions in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Louisville, San Juan, Prague and Marseilles. She is a recent recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship as well as grants from the Pollock Krasner Foundation and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
Her work is in many private and public collections, including Deutsche Bank; Chambers Hotel, New York; Progressive Corp., Cleveland; and New Jersey State Museum, Trenton. Church lives and works in New York City.
McCarthy is a sculptor based in New York City.
Since 1985, her work has been exhibited in the United States, Europe, China and Japan. She has participated in residencies in Berlin and Cologne, Germany; Santa Fe Art Institute; and Edward Albee’s “The Barn.”
McCarthy has received grants from the West Collection, Foundation for Contemporary Art and the Joan Mitchell Foundation, which supported her residency at Santa Fe Art Institute.
The exhibition “James Waller: Cracked Pot” will feature the imaginative artwork of James Waller.
“Color is an obvious area of great interest to Waller, and he uses it to elicit a strong emotional response from the viewer,” Baron said. “Imagery alluding to spiritual realization and self-exploration are evident through imagery related to Christian iconography, Greek mythology, popular culture, and ancient and modern textiles.”
Waller, 69, is an emerging artist. Although he took many studio art classes in college, he stopped making art almost entirely after graduation and didn’t start again until 2005, when he was 52.
In the 30 years between, he earned a master’s degree in philosophy of religion from Columbia University; taught courses in philosophy, religion and writing at a number of New York City colleges; and, as he said, ‘had a haphazard career as a freelance writer and editor.”
He has written several books, including the four-volume “Drinkology” series (2003–2010) on cocktails, wine and beer. Another boozy book, “Cocktails, A Still Life,” illustrated by painter Todd Casey and co-written with Christine Sismondo, was released in August.
When he decided to try making art again, Waller took a number of courses at Parsons.
His work has appeared in group shows in New Jersey and New York.
The Mueller Gallery exhibit “Cracked Pot” is his first solo show.
Lately, he has focused on drawing, using a mixture of markers, brush & ink, gouache and colored pencils. His drawings are mostly highly colored and straddle the border between figuration and abstraction.
