Garry Grant
My abstract paintings are inspired by world affairs, the evolution of our culture, society’s idolization of material wealth, and human relationships, including the relationship that we have with ourselves. In addition, I often contemplate the sustainability of our planet, the consequences of our behavior on nature, and the importance of music in nurturing our souls.

ABOUT ROSE DELER
www.rosedeler.com

Artist Statement
I am an artist who draws on the skills handed to me by my ancestors. They were boat builders, carpenters, seamstresses, farmers, and homemakers. In art-making, labor is essential to my practice. My work is craft-based, woman’s work. I incorporate textiles, sewing, ceramic, and I include printmaking and photography to create sculptures. They are about memory true, painful, happy or idealized in an attempt at self-preservation. My work deals with things that have shaped us. It speaks to the past but also the passing of time. It is about someone who once was and is no more but still telling their story.

Bio
Rose has an MFA in Studio Arts from the City College of New York. Her work has been exhibited at The Pen and Brush Gallery in New York City, Portal: Governors Island Art Fair, Hewitt Gallery in New York, Cohen Gallery at GoggleWorks Center for the Art in Pennsylvania, The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn, Compton Goethals Art Gallery, The International Print Center of NY (PrintFest), Los Angeles Convention Center, Rio II Gallery, Cohen Library Archives Gallery, Aaron Davis Gallery, Indian Road Café/Gallery, Maggi Peyton Gallery, Georgetown Peabody Library in Massachusetts, and the Vermont Studio Center. Rose has been an adjunct faculty at CCNY teaching intro to ceramics (a foundation course). She won the Provost’s Prize in Art, Holly T Popper Award and Merit Connor Tuition Scholarship.

Curator Walk for Healing and Community: Physical to Virtual

RSVP on Eventbrite

Zoom room link May 20, 7:30pm

NoMAA PRESENTS THREE ONLINE EXHIBITION ROOMS
Healing and Community: Physical to Virtual
curated by Patricia Miranda

THE GALLERIES:
Reflection: Art of introspection and meditation
Connection: Art that links the self to others
Community: Art as action

Art weaves threads of connection across otherwise robust boundaries. These connections translate into actions that ripple out into the world as culture, through art that reflects, critiques, and celebrates the complicated world we live in.
In a time of social distancing, art brings us together. We sing across balconies, dance across computer screens, paint and post pictures of the mundane and the extraordinary, the tragic and the comedic. Art connects us when we cannot physically be together, and reminds us of the bonds that make us a community.

CURATOR:
Patricia Miranda, a long-time resident of Washington Heights, is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and educator, and founder of MAPSpace project space and The Crit Lab, professional development and critique for artists. She creates objects and installations using found textile, books, and paper, altered with handmade natural dyes and pigments as form, process, and ecofeminist action.
