Chul Hyun Ahn: New Light
Now until April 30
Stark Gallery and Stark Rotunda
The museum is offering an exciting exhibition of the
Korean artist Chul Hyun Ahn. Ahn (born in Busan, South
Korea, 1971) creates mind-bending sculptures that conjure illusions
of infinite space. Drawing from Op Art and light-andspace
traditions, as well as theories of the subconscious, the
Baltimore artist explores the immersive, illusory possibilities
of reflection. Ahn has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally
and is included in numerous private and public
collections in Paris, Karlsruhe, Seoul, Istanbul and Dubai.
Poetry Of Nature: Hudson River School Landscapes from
the New-York Historical Society
Jan. 23 — May 2
The Hudson River School rose to eminence in New York
during the first half of the 19th century. This loosely knit
group of artists, together with like-minded poets and writers,
forged a self-consciously American landscape vision and literary
voice. This exhibition includes 40 paintings by 25 artists
ranging in date from 1818 to 1886, and offers a varied survey
of important paintings conceived in the style of the Hudson
River School depicting the varied scenery along its banks,
among them the Catskills, Adirondack and White Mountains
that provided the subject for their landscape masterpieces.
