Two temporary exhibitions are filling the gallery spaces in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University this fall.
“The Sublime in the Commonplace: The Sculpture of Conrad Levenson” and “Microcosm: Recent Photographs by International Photographers Beatrice Pediconi and Yasuko Oki” are both on display.
Conrad Levenson was an architect by training and spent his career rehabilitating old structures for new uses. During his career, Levinson and his wife, Amy, lived mainly in New York City. Their weekend home in Stanfordville, New York, in the Hudson Valley has become their main home in retirement. It is here that Levinson works now, visiting scrap yards for pieces that have been discarded; he carries them home and reworks them into an artistic purpose.
Levenson’s works can be seen at the Quick Center through Nov. 24, 2019. Some pieces are small, while others on display are meant to be installed in an outdoor space. The artist will visit the Quick Center on Tuesday, Oct. 1, and present a gallery talk at 4 p.m. All are invited to attend.
In “Microcosm,” two internationally known photographers come together in this exhibition curated by Barbara Luisi. Luisi will be on campus Nov. 14 to present a gallery talk at 4 p.m. with Pediconi, an Italian artist. The program is free and open to the public. On Nov. 15, Luisi will take part in a duo recital with Alessandro Taverna in a Friends of Good Music performance.
