Featured Exhibitions

Beyond Form: Non-Objective Art by Deaf Artists open on Friday, March 9 and run until Saturday, April 21.  Curated by guest curator, Brenda Schertz, Beyond Form explores non-objective art by Deaf artists in a wide range of media. This exhibit came into being after multiple conversations among Deaf modern art enthusiasts.

The diverse Deaf artists in this exhibit have demonstrated “visual poetry” through their masterful manipulation of and experimentation with texture, composition and color. Their works seem to take on a meditative power. Visual rhythm – through repetition or movement – seems to convey a sense of musicality. Sound is referenced, not as limited to an auditory experience, but as possibly a visual experience. Several artists make references to nature, and it is deeply ingrained in their work. Yet other artists look inwards, narrating personal journeys expressing truth, joy or sadness.  The pieces in the exhibit were chosen primarily for their aesthetic value.  Non-objective art provides viewers scope to use their imagination in interpreting what is – or is not – perceived in images beyond their form. We invite you to meditate upon this kaleidoscope of colors, compositions, shapes, and emotions.

Jennifer loved to travel and provided support for RIT/NTID study abroad experiences, and this endowed scholarship will continue her legacy.
