Drawing from Memory

BE A PART OF THE ART!
Tell a story, make a connection
 
In an age where people use email, texting, and social media to connect and tell their stories, actual human connection becomes more difficult to establish every day. What would happen if we took things offline and actually picked up the phone to connect with someone?
 
“Drawing From Memory,” created by Melissa Sarris and organized by Melanie Cohn, will ask strangers to connect over the phone by calling a toll-free number and telling a personal story of a childhood memory about, “water,” “crossings,” “journeys,” or “the city.” The call will be answered by an artist stationed in the gallery space at the St. George Terminal, who will create a drawing to illustrate or respond to the story. Artists from community partner Art Lab, as well as other local and visiting artists will offer their creative expertise. The completed drawings will be on display in the Culture Lounge from January 8 through March 22, 2015.
 
“Drawing From Memory” invites two strangers to enter into a singular exchange. A participant tells a childhood memory over the phone and the artist listens and creates a drawing based on that memory. The use of the telephone allows for an intimate yet comfortable exchange between strangers. For many people, drawing is a basic activity of childhood. For those who pursue art, drawing becomes a means of skilled expression and translation. “Drawing From Memory,” artists from community partner Art Lab offer their expertise to translate intangible memory into tangible form. The exchange becomes visible; the created drawing is an artifact of the experience that later becomes a gift to the storyteller.

A Stitch in Time

The Staten Island LGBT Community Center is pleased to have the work of Steven Gargiulo on display this month with an opening reception on Second Saturday!!!

In the artists words: "'A Stitch in Time' is a collection of pieces that I have worked on over years. The central theme deals with overwhelming emotions and how to cope. My early works were done during a time of depression in my teens, when I was first coming to terms with my own sexual orientation. As time went on I learned to express myself through my art as a means to vent. My newer pieces are a reflection of self acceptance, and growth through time."
