America lost a great artist who passed away yesterday at 93. Here is a portion of her obit from The NY Times. More can be found o on the link below. Faith Ringgold, a multimedia artist whose pictorial quilts depicting the African American experience gave rise to a second distinguished career as a writer and illustrator of children’s books, died on Saturday at her home in Englewood, N.J. She was 93.

Her death was confirmed by her daughter Barbara Wallace.

For more than a half-century, Ms. Ringgold explored themes of race, gender, class, family and community through a vast array of media, among them painting, sculpture, mask- and doll-making, textiles and performance art. She was also a longtime advocate of bringing the work of Black people and women into the collections of major American museums.

Ms. Ringgold’s art, which was often rooted in her own experience, has been exhibited at the White House and in museums and galleries around the world. It is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the American Craft Museum in New York; the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston; and other institutions.

For Ms. Ringgold, as her work and many interviews made plain, art and activism were a seamless, if sometimes quilted, whole. Classically trained as a painter and sculptor, she began producing political paintings in the 1960s and ’70s that explored the highly charged subjects of relations between Black and white people, and between men and women, in America. She will be missed.

CERES GALLERY NYC at ARC Gallery Chicago Opening Reception: Friday, May 3, 2024, 5-8pm

Ceres Gallery is a feminist, not-for-profit, alternative gallery in New York City dedicated to the promotion of contemporary women in the arts. We are very excited to be expanding our reach with a new audience by exhibiting in a different venue in another part of the country at ARC Chicago. Our two organizations share the same mission and provide exhibition space that enhances public awareness and helps remediate women’s limited access to commercial galleries.

The artists of Ceres believe the arts provide an important social service – that art has the power to educate, enhance and enrich the quality and depth of people’s lives. Both Ceres and ARC Gallery provide a showcase for women artists regardless of age, artistic style or commercial viability to exhibit their work and through progressive programing, have also become a gathering place for educational and community activities. In addition to providing the general public with a place to expand their knowledge of contemporary art, they are also places for women artists to gather for community and friendship. Ceres would like to thank the members of ARC for their generous support and help in mounting this exhibition.

Opening Reception, Friday, May 3, 5:00-8:00pm
Exhibition dates: May 2 - 24, 2024
Gallery hours: Thurs – Fri 2-6pm, Sat – Sun 12-4 pm

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.

Ceres Gallery is pleased to present the work of Shirley Steele.
This work is a video exploration of what it is like to restructure a self-portrait when there are important pieces missing. We humans are continually updating and reconstructing our own self-portraits. As we have new experiences, our existing model of our self becomes outdated and needs reimagining. If we add new things to our life, like learning to play chess or play the violin, we enlarge our self-image to reflect the new attributes. But what happens if we lose meaningful pieces (loved ones die, friends disappear)? How is it possible to reconstruct the model? How is it different? This work explores the messy and confused process of creating a new self-portrait with pieces missing.

DISPLACEMENT by Judith Greenwald - who calls upon us to bear witness— to see and acknowledge injustice and to show up with empathy, compassion, and solidarity at very least. Bearing witness inherently involves making visible those who are invisible and recognizing that each person has a story. Greenwald invites us to imagine the narratives that accompany each of these paintings and, in so doing, to join her in bearing witness to “this besieged world.”
—Judith Greenwald, Ceres Gallery, 2024 
The artist will be in the gallery Thursday, March 28 5-8; Tuesday April 2, 12-2; and by appointment.

Judith Greenwald has created a community of displaced figures, sometimes haunting and always suggestive of an unspoken narrative.
Each piece has been painted with a combination of oil paint and cold wax, a medium that lends itself to the experience of depth and complexity. The contexts in which these figures appear as well as the figures themselves are created with multiple layers, varying textures, and a range of color. The artist will be in the gallery Thursday, March 28 5-8; Tuesday April 2, 12-2; and by appointment.

“Joan Arbeiter has been in my life for so
many years, I can’t imagine feminism without her. She was one of the leading artists in the early days who made feminist art and included feminist statements in her drawings. She made sure Ceres Gallery celebrated Women’s Month every March with an outstanding speaker. I remember having dinner with Miriam Shapiro and Joan before Miriam gave us a review of her artistic life and how she became a feminist. Joan was a major figure in the life of Ceres.” Phyllis Rosser

It is with great sadness that Ceres Gallery shares the news that one of our members, colleague, and dear friend, Joan Arbeiter passed away on Saturday. She was a very early member of Ceres and an incredibly enthusiastic, positive and energetic person who worked hard and made wonderful art. Joan never had a bad word for anyone and brought a special energy to everything she did.

“For me feminism is life-affirming and open-minded. It is the lens through which I perceive my artistic practice and my personal and political circumstance” (from the Brooklyn Museum, Sackler Center for Feminist Art website).

She was the co-author of Lives and Works: Talks With Women Artists. She truly was a special person.
