Industrial Strength

3:00pm – 8:00pm

Presented by the Gallery at 51 Crescent Avenue BPT.

The Gallery at Black Rock presents “Industrial Strength,” a juried show in which artists view the post-industrial landscape

Artists have celebrated landscapes since the first chunks of charcoal were rubbed on cave walls. Through history artists have tried, with varying degrees of success, to capture the bucolic and stunning views of nature — mountains, trees, the sky — that surround them.
Today, artists are often confronted with a very different kind of landscape, the post-industrial urban landscape of the 21st century. But inspiration remains the same.

In cities like Bridgeport, Connecticut, we are surrounded by the remnants of a once-thriving manufacturing community. All Bridgeporters can resonate in some way to the towering red and white-banded United Illuminating smoke stack, or to the crumbling hulks of once-thriving factory buildings that, in their prime, made Bridgeport one of the Northeast’s greatest industrial cities.
It is easy to vilify the industrial landscape as ugly or depressing, but through the eyes of an artist the sights that are so repellent to some, emerge with hidden, sometimes breathtaking, beauty.

The show will seek to address both points of view on this issue through, painting, sculpture, installation and photography as well as film/projected image. There will be 14 participating artists including: Amber Madia, Jeff Becker, Liz Squillace, Brian Reiley, Ginger Hanrahan, Rachael Haymann, Mark DeRosa, Jessica Materna, Victoria Wyndham, Allen Wittert , BM Riely, Sean Corbett, Eileen Smith, Janine Brown and Michelle Beaulieu.

The show will be the Gallery at Black Rocks First off site installation and will take place at the sight of Camelot Development on 51 Crescent Avenue in the city’s East Side. “The location is will act as part of the shows vision as it is surrounded by part of the city that was once a thriving industrial site and still holds a neglected beauty.

The shows opening reception will be held on Saturday February 27th 2010 from 3pm until 8pm. The sight will be open for viewing on the following four consecutive Saturdays from 12 until 4pm.

The Gallery would like to thank Camelot Development and Eileen Smith for donations to the show.

Special thanks to Jurors Susan Breen, KHyal, Karl Heine, Keith Rodgerson
