Everything is Sky, Acrylic on panel, 2011
Opening Reception: Wednesday, March 30, 5 - 7 p.m.
Cicely Cottingham will present a talk about her work in the Gallery at 5:30 p.m.
Lockhart Gallery is presenting the landscape inspired paintings of Cicely Cottingham. “Everything is Sky” are an investigation into visualizing the passage of time and mood, both of which are evident in the movement of clouds, sky and the changes of the seasons. Cottingham acknowledges the influence of Zen Buddhism is her work process and that process yields paintings that are serene, beautiful and remind us of the summers to come.
Cottingham has received numerous awards: Joan Mitchell Foundation in Painting and Sculptors Grant, the Pollock/Krasner Grant, New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship Awards, and others. Her work is in the permanent collections of many museums including: Noyes Museum of Art, The Newark Museum and Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Jersey City Museum, and the Morris Museum. Cottingham’s previous exhibitions include: the Hunterdon Museum of Art, Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art, Paul Robeson Galleries, Rutgers Newark, Artist’s Space, and La Mama’s La Galleria in New York
Exhibitions are free and open to the public and refreshments will be available.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Thursday: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m., and Friday - Saturday: 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
