Space Between" Features Work by Painters
The Space Between, an exhibition featuring recent works by New Jersey artists Randall Greenbaum and David Kaufmann will be at The Gallery of Mercer County Community College Sept. 20 through Oct. 29. A gallery talk takes place Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m.
Randall Greenbaum, a Princeton resident recently transplanted from Miami, Florida, studied fine art at Rutgers University during the experimental period of the late 60s and early 70s, when art was as likely to be as influenced by the Fluxus movement as it was by classic artists. He pursued his graduate degrees in architecture studies at Washington University in St. Louis and Florida International University in Miami. He has exhibited extensively throughout the United States.
David Kaufmann began his art training at the Putney School, a prep school in Vermont, where he was strongly influenced by the outsider approach of his instructor, the Louisiana artist Bob Gordy. Following a brief stint at Rhode Island School of Design, Kaufmann moved to Santa Fe, where he studied at the University of New Mexico. While in New Mexico he became friends with artist Bob Williams, whose own radical approach to both art and life deeply influenced Kaufmann’s work.
“Although these two artists approach their art and their lives in very different ways, there is an underlying sensibility in their work that I believe people will find very intriguing,” says Tricia Fagan, curator of The Gallery. “Although Randy and David each have unique, very personal visions that direct how they work with paint and surfaces, they have a lot to say to each other in their work. Both are exploring color in unusual ways. Both are interested in the rhythm and movement that happens in the spaces in between. It’s a visual dialogue that people should have fun eavesdropping on!”
The Gallery at MCCC is located on the West Windsor Campus at 1200 Old Trenton Road. Current hours are Monday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Wednesday evenings, 7 to 9 p.m.
All exhibits at The Gallery are free and open to the public. For more information call 609-586-4800 ext. 3589 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
