“My strength is not mine alone but is the strength of many.”

This is one of the proverbs that influenced Rosalie Koko’s muka and cotton applique reversible quilt.

Koko is one of 11 artists who have connections to the region whose work is displayed at the new toi Māori gallery Tui Tui [bind together].

The gallery is at Square Edge Arts Centre in the space previously used by Studio on The Square, and is the brainchild of new Square Edge Community Arts artistic director Erana Kaa.

Explore one of this year’s most notable exhibitions with ArtTable during Upstate Art Weekend! Join us at Storm King Art Center for a private tour of Arlene Shechet: Girl Group with Eric Booker, Associate Curator at Storm King and co-curator of the exhibition. Surrounded by the stunning landscape of the Hudson Valley, we will encounter six monumental sculptures, created by Shechet in aluminum and stainless steel for Storm King’s exhibition. Painted in subtle gradations of color that evoke the impact of light and the elements of nature on manmade objects, Shechet’s towering sculptures interrogate the overwhelmingly masculine history of their genre. Girl Group continues in Storm King’s indoor galleries, where smaller ceramic works from Shechet’s Together series illustrate the artist’s iterative process of making and reshaping the forms she would ultimately express on a monumental scale.Please note: ArtTable will gather at 12:00 PM to allow adequate time to walk to the exhibition site prior to the 12:30 PM tour. Admission to Storm King Art Center is included with registration.
