"Mistakes"

June 1st through July 5th, 2019

Lisa Herrald-Doerschler, who runs the Ideas Studio for Children, an independent, Reggio-inspired preschool here in Bloomsburg, brought us the idea for this show, saying this: "Mistakes open new doors.  We can find endless examples of famous historical figures in science, art, education, engineering, and so on who have used the learning process from a mistake to impact the world for the better.  If we as a community share our artistic expressions of mistakes, whether the art is a mistake or about mistakes, this will empower us to open our minds to go deeper in our learning, our reflections, our skills, and our self-awareness."

 

We left it up to the artists to define "mistakes" in their work, and more than 30 people -- including eight of Lisa's 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old students -- responded to the call, with paintings, drawing, photographs, sculpture, pottery, and more.

Reception 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, June 1st

"Art on the Spectrum": work by artists with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder)

March 25th through April 19th, 2019

In conjunction with Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble's production of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time", the Exchange Gallery presents work by regional artists on the Autism spectrum.  Thank you to BTE's Elizabeth Dowd and Jerry Stropnicky (emeritus) and our own Art Cart facilitator Anne Cosper for inspiring and organizing the show.

Thank you too to BTE's technical director, Earl Martz, and shop assistant, Paris Tennenhouse, who built the framework for the interactive piece that features artwork that Anne collected during Art Cart visits to Camp Emerge and ADERS, Inc.; thank you to BTE for the donations of Earl's and Paris's time and the materials.  And thank you to Marianne Tillotson, art director at Camp Emerge.

More than a dozen artists have work in the show, with drawings, paintings, collages, photographs, and a sculpture -- a broad spectrum of work from a broad spectrum of people.

Reception Saturday, March 30th, 6-8 p.m.

We will have the Gallery open for an hour and a half before every BTE performance during the run of "Curious Incident", as well as after every school matinee.   Visit BTE.org for times and ticket info.

"Color of the Year"

February 19th through March 22nd, 2019

Every December, Pantone announces their Color of the Year for the following year.  For 2019, they chose "Living Coral": Now our artists knew what color to make work in and inspired by!

(To see the color on Pantone's Web site, click here.)​

Pantone says "Vibrant, yet mellow PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.​

"In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity.

"Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression. Representing the fusion of modern life, PANTONE Living Coral is a nurturing color that appears in our natural surroundings and at the same time, displays a lively presence within social media." ​

Reception Saturday, March 2nd, 5-9 p.m., during the 6th annual Destination Blues Music Festival, with live music in the Gallery by Stacia Abernatha and Sean Farley

"The Sound (and Sight) of Music"

January 7th through February 15th, 2019

Does your favorite song bring images to your mind?  We asked regional artists this question, and they made work based on their answers: One artist did an embroidery piece inspired by a Modest Mouse song; another made two paintings inspired by two other Modest Mouse songs. Other inspirations include Johnny Cash, Small Faces (remember "Itchycoo Park" from 1967?), David Bowie (again, two artists), and the "Hokey Pokey" -- and of course many more: paintings, photographs, drawings, collage and other mixed-media pieces, digital imagery, glass, and fiber, including a five-foot-by-eight-foot quilt covered with hobo signs.  Artists include some of "the usual suspects" (people whose work you have enjoyed here for years) and also some who have never shown here before -- among them, at least two children who have never shown anywhere before.

Reception Saturday, February 9th, 6-8 p.m.
