Puzzled: Ryan Parr at Yates Gallery [Get Visual]

Sunflower Remix Reprise 2016 – oil on canvas 51 x 51 inches

Review by David Brickman

One of the hidden gems on the local art scene is the Yates Gallery at Siena College. Tucked into the second floor of the college’s Standish Library, the Yates offers modestly scaled exhibitions in a quiet, well-lit space perfectly suited to the solo shows by emerging artists that it tends to favor.

The current show on view there (through May 14), entitled Puzzled, features 12 paintings and four drawings by Ryan Parr, a native of Iowa and UAlbany 2005 MFA recipient who, like so many of his fellows, has stuck around after graduation to become a regular part of the region’s rich mix of artists. This is his first solo exhibition in the Northeast.

FILM: “Leaning into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy”

April 24th, 2018, 3:00 pm by Greg

It’s impossible to separate British artist Andy Goldsworthy’s art from nature, so it’s fortunate that German director Thomas Riedelsheimer is so intrigued by his work that he gives us a second intimate inside look at Goldsworthy’s process and philosophy – as well as his often ephemeral art – with the feature-length documentary “Leaning Into the Wind: Andy Goldsworthy,” Riedelsheimer’s follow-up to his magnificent 2001 doc “Rivers and Tides: Andy Goldsworthy Working With Time.”

“Leaning Into the Wind” is being screened at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck at 5:45pm on Wednesday, as well at Time + Space Ltd. in Hudson at 6pm on Thursday & Friday; 6:15pm on Saturday; and 2:15pm on Sunday ($9; students $7).
