CONSIDERING THE KYLIX: Contemporary Interpretations of a Classical Form

The multi–disciplinary, invitational exhibition is curated by Maleyne M. Syracuse in conjunction with Peters Valley School of Craft. The kylix, the original ceremonial wine cup, first appeared as early as 900 BCE in ancient Greece. The word "chalice," the term used for the sacred ceremonial wine cup in Christian ecclesiastical services, is derived, via the Latin "calix," from the Greek "kylix." The kylix has appeared from time to time over the centuries, as artisans have recreated or reinterpreted the form using materials, processes, and aesthetics suited to their time. Contemporary craft artists were asked to reinterpret the form in their own style and materials. 

The exhibition includes over 50 contemporary interpretations by 45 artists working in metal, wood, glass, clay, beading, felt, fibers, jewelry, and mixed media.

Participating Artists: Kate Anderson, Bennett Bean, John Beaver, Lanny Bergner, Doug Beube, Ricky Boscarino, Charissa Brock, Harlan W. Butt, Steve Cook, Karen Copensky, Cappy Counard, Bruce Dehnert, Sarah Doremus, Liz Alpert Fay, Harvey Fein, Jonathan Garcia, Lindsay Ketterer Gates, Susan Taylor Glasgow, Jenne Giles, Susan D.

Photographic Imagery of Reality in Imaginary Worlds by Chala Jan

Chala Janpraphasakul’s body of photography work focuses on her story–telling qualities and the visual dynamic essence that she invokes in a viewer’s perception. Her photographic imagery contains elements of surrealism combining photography and creative digital processing to render multiplicity, levitation, nature–defined movement, and supernatural transformation to the subjects in her images. 

Chala is a Scranton, PA–based fine art photographer and software developer. She was born and raised in Thailand until 1998. After graduating from Hunter College (NY) in 2004 with a degree in computer software, she came to Scranton and has worked as a software developer ever since.

Chala was awarded a one–person exhibition in 2014–2015 at Marywood University by the selection committee for the Northeastern Biennial Twenty Thirteen; she also was awarded first place in photography. In addition, her work received recognition with the F. Lammot Belin 2014 Emerging Artist Award.

ILLUSTRATION II: A Sampler of American Golden Age Illustration

Suraci Gallery
Oct 27, 2014 - Dec 07, 2014

The “Golden Age” in American illustration (1900–1940s) was a period of excellence and proliferation in print illustration. Advances in technology led to faster and inexpensive printing of books, magazines, and newspapers; publications and their accompanying illustrations had an unprecedented impact on American life, consumerism, and culture.

Organized by illustrator John Kascht, the works in the exhibition provide a range of styles and approaches in vintage illustration and early animation. Included in the exhibition are drawings and paintings by Franklin Booth, A. B. Frost, Dean Cornwell, Walt Disney Studios, James Montgomery Flagg, Al Hirschfeld, Henry C. Pitz, Norman Rockwell, and Herbert Morton Stoops. Preliminary sketches and studies are spotlighted, revealing the high level of draftsmanship and technical skill employed by these artists.

Gallery Talk: October 29, 3 PM given by John Kascht
