Terry Winters: Sketchbook Pages & Tokyo Notes

Skidmore College’s Schick Art Gallery will exhibit a rare collection of works this spring—in fact, these works have never been shown. They are 12 examples of New York City artist and printmaker Terry Winters’ work from 2002, called Sketchbook Pages (all graphite on paper). According to press for the exhibit, Winters’ work is known for its “layers of interlocking networks of accumulating lines, forming webs and grids that have intrigued, challenged and thrilled viewers for years with their simultaneous impulses toward fusion of worlds and multiple interpretations.”

The pages, borrowed from the Matthew Marks Gallery in New York, will make up half of the gallery’s Winters exhibition. The other half will consist of a series of 11 lithographs published by Kido Press in Tokyo, called Tokyo Notes (Tokyo Notes 1 is pictured here).

Collections of Winters’ work have been compiled into numerous books, including a recent collection (co-published by the Addison Gallery of American Art and Yale University), called Terry Winters/Paintings, Drawing, Prints/1994-2004.

Terry Winters: Sketchbook Pages & Tokyo Notes will open at the Schick Art Gallery (Skidmore College, 815 N. Broadway, Saratoga Springs) tonight (Thursday, April 13), and will run through July 9. There will be an artist’s talk in the Gannett Auditorium in Palamountain Hall on April 25 at 6 PM, followed by an artist’s reception in the gallery. For more information, call the gallery at 580-5049.

Nao Bustamante

The now-RPI-based (via the Bay Area) performance artist Nao Bustamante uses props, video projections and karaoke in her live performances—but the focus is on her. And by “her,” we mean her body. Consider her artist’s statement:

“Using the body as a source of image, narrative and emotion, my performances communicate on the level of subconscious language, taking the spectator on a bizarre journey, cracking stereotypes by embodying them. I disarm the audience with a sense of vulnerability, only to confront them with a startling wake-up call.”

Check out the video of Bustamante currently on the iEar Web site for a good example of vulnerability and confrontation. While you’re online, browse around for other examples of Bustamante’s work: It’s compelling, scary, beautiful and grotesque. It will do a better job of enticing you to check out Wednesday’s performance than anything we can add.

Nao Bustamante will perform on Wednesday (April 19) at 7:30 PM at West Hall Auditorium (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy), presented by iEar. Admission is free. For directions and parking info, call the iEar help desk at 276-4829.


Flyleaf lead singer Lacey Mosley likes to hit herself on stage. We expect that she’ll be hitting herself Saturday night at Saratoga Winners. That might not be an obvious turn-on for hard rock fans, but before you go judging, we should tell you that she also looks like a pre-“rehab” Olsen twin or Cameron Diaz at a My Chemical Romance show.

Mosley probably should stop hitting herself, because she is sitting on top of a pop goldmine. The science of pop-rock hybridization, of late, has been stunning. After the über-success of the Linkin Park formula—four parts Korn plus three parts ’N Sync divided by Rob Zombie equals processed angst-pop and cash—not many thought a greater formula could be devised. Conventional thinking be damned, however: Flyleaf seem destined to prove all the haters wrong. How could anyone not have seen it coming? Four parts Avril Lavigne plus three parts Nickelback multiplied by Taproot divided by the square root of one Olsen Twin equals unlimited pop appeal and loads of angsty anger.

Flyleaf (pictured), with special guest artists Revelation Theory, Mercy Fall and Idols Never Die, will perform on Saturday (April 14) at 7:30 PM at Saratoga Winners (1375 New Loudon Road, Latham). Tickets are $10 at the door. For more information, call the club at 783-1010.
