Blind Spots: Handmade Paper Collage by Lucy Holtsnider  (Opening Reception)

Blind Spots: Handmade Paper Collage by Lucy Holtsnider (Opening Reception)

Blind Spots features a collection of vibrant, abstract collages made from handmade paper and recycled fabric. Saturated, overlapping layers glow with fervent intensity, referencing the textures and hues of a warming planet. The enigmatic components of each collage simultaneously evoke both precious materials and forgotten detritus, conjuring associations with sense of place, topographic maps, and climate change.

Show dates: September 6 - 25, 2019

Opening, September 6, 6 - 9pm
Artist Talk, Sunday, September 8, 3 - 4pm
Collage Workshop, Sunday, September 15, 1 - 4pm


Location: Womenswork.art, 4 South Clinton St. Poughkeepsie, NY 12601

This show is the first solo exhibition on the East Coast by artist Lucy Holtsnider. The collection of new work featured in Blind Spots is composed of handmade paper created during a 2018 residency at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale. During the six-week residency, Lucy made hundreds of irregularly shaped pieces of brightly colored paper from cotton and other plant fibers. These were then printed by hand using a large roller to create fades of color. She then arranged the paper components into collages over a period of several months. Fabric from Poughkeepsie thrift stores also found its way into some of the collages, often featuring a floral print that has been darkened or altered in reference to environmental damage.

Lucy creates her work both at Fall Kill Print Works at the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory and in her studio at home. She also teaches as an adjunct professor at Stern College for Women at Yeshiva University and at Marist College. Her previous work includes Climate Odyssey, an artist book edition and interactive map chronicling a year-long sailing expedition and art/science collaboration undertaken with her partner, Marist professor Zion Klos. This project explored climate change impacts and adaptation strategies along the east coast of the US, including the Hudson Valley.

Womenswork.art has the extraordinary opportunity to organize tours of artist Maddy Segall-Marx’s 10 year project The Singing Bowl, to benefit both Maddy’s causes and Womenswork.art.

This is how women support each other, in action. Viewing Maddy’s work in her Hyde Park Barn is astounding. As a young women, I had the chance to visit The Van Gogh Museum in Arles, the Leger Museum in Biot and go see Salvador Dali’s house in Figueres, Spain. Taking in the view of a life’s work is not the same as looking at an isolated piece of artwork, or a curated show and the opportunity to view a large body of work is rare. Fast forward, in the Hudson Valley, what Maddy offers is a house and barn museum that explores years of work. And Maddy will be there to narrate.

Maddy’s project is a ‘call to world peace’ from a woman’s voice, ‘listening to the enemy’: 25 war zone narratives, 25 recipes, to 25 artworks. While the initial connection in the visual works may be symbolic of food, Maddy lost herself in cultural identification as she executed symbiotically works that represent the countries of her study. In my view, to be so chameleon is uniquely female. We want to identify and become one with. Maddy’s work is very much about the world, more than about her. Her work expresses profound empathy and compassion, and in that way is deeply uplifting.

Unapologetic: Lindsey Guile (Figure Drawing Workshop)

Womenswork.art presents- UNAPOLOGETIC: LINDSEY GUILE

Figure Drawing Workshop: Saturday, May 19th, 2019 1-4pm

FREE guided figure drawing session taught by Lindsey Guile with a live model on Sunday,
May 19th, 1-4 PM. Space is limited, so RSVP required for figure drawing.

Womenswork.art is thrilled to present feminist artist and SUNY/DCC Fine Arts Professor Lindsey Guile in a solo show of drawings entitled UNAPOLOGETIC. Lindsey’s primarily large scale drawings celebrate her unabashed commitment to the Body Positive social movement, which supports women in accepting their bodies and reframing their self-image. In Lindsey’s work she asks the question: What are the factors that shape and mold the way we look at ourselves and others? Between the mirror or camera lens and the self are the fleeting interactions that inform our emotional connection with ourselves that become the basis of self-loathing or self-love. Combining elements of abstraction with classical figuration Lindsey explores this turf.
