Episode: Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis: episode 50 Spring Sprung


This Month on Live Culture I am delighted to present a conversation with curator/artist Fritz Horstman and artist Leila Daw about the forth coming exhibit Water Access at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art New Haven, located at 51 Trumbull Street. The show runs from May 5 - June 23, 2019. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, May 5, from 2-4pm.

The exhibit includes work by: Richard Barlow, Marilyn Crocker, Leila Daw, Daniel Eugene, Alexander Harding, Amy Jean Porter, James Prosek, Scott Schuldt, Gina Siepel, Joseph Smolinski and was curated by Fritz Horstman.

The artists in Water Access deal head-on with the ubiquitous and vital resource of water. Working in photography, sculpture, painting, drawing and beadwork, they show their sensitivities to the complicated human relationship with water. Some of the work is overtly political in its environmental concern. Others depict its sublime qualities, its mundane aspects, the life it supports, or the ways in which we interact with it.

During the second half of Live Culture there will be a discussion direct from the Colorblends House & Spring Garden's Artist's Reception & Spring Celebration in Bridgeport with the projects organizers and artists. The celebration is on Saturday, April 27th. from 10-6 pm, and offers a colorful garden of tulips and bulbs and an art exhibition featuring work by local artists: Benjamin Casiano, Bob Keating, Chandler Davis, David Joel Pratt, Jahmane, Jennifer Williams, JodiAnn Strmiska, Katie Jurkiewicz, looketha, Michael J Clocks, Nancy Moore, Patrice Barrett, Tara Blackwell and Vasilisa Romanenko in the newly renovated Colonial Revival mansion on the grounds.
