Introducing: Jebah Baum Elizabeth Arnold Ilse Schreiber-Noll Andrew Rust Barger
Gallery one will feature a sampling of work from ournewest artists. BAU Gallery has always emphasized complete freedom for its artists to experiment and try new ideas, expand on themes and present new works. BAU is a place for artists to grow and our new members fit right in with our philosophy. They are experimenters and we look forward to seeing what Jebah, Elizabeth, Ilse and Andrew will surprise our audiences with every successive exhibition they will participate in.
ABOUT OUR NEW ARTISTS
Jebah Baum is a process based painter, sculptor, printmaker and photographer. He has a BFA from SUNY Purchase and an MFA from Cornell University. He writes: “In my art I enjoy exploring incongruences between two and three-dimensionality. I often construct by layering and modifying shapes that build into recognizable forms and patterns: an arc, a wave, a column, a tower. The work’s ensuing narratives are the stories of its making, the choices involved in its creation, and the effects of the resulting relationships between materials, form and space.” His work has been exhibited in the U.S., Sweden, Germany and France.
Elizabeth Arnold is a psychologist and a mixed media artist whose recent work involves found objects like wood and bone. She uses collage, assemblage, photography, and paint in works that evoke both materiality and immateriality - the in-between landscape of dreams. She writes: "At this cultural tipping point, it is important that we preserve the relics and symbols of the ancestral collective and that we retain access to our own unconscious wisdom". She has exhibited throughout the Hudson Valley and is a graduate of Columbia University Teachers College, Harvard University, Graduate School of Education, Cambridge, Brandeis and the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Ilse Schreiber-Noll is a multimedia artist. Her paintings, installations, woodcuts, and Artist’s books speak of social and environmental issues. Born in Germany, Ilse received her MFA from Purchase College SUNY, NY. Her heavily textured painted books are visual diaries that complement the content of her other works bringing out its lyrical, tactile, and poetic reality filled with natures residues. Collaborative works include limited edition artist books with critic Eric Bentley, poets and musicians Joseph Brodsky, Dennis Brutus, Galway Kinnell, Octavio Paz, John Cage and Robert Kelly. Schreiber-Noll exhibits nationally and internationally, and is the winner of numerous grants and honors.
Andrew Rust Barger is multi-disciplinary artist focusing on critical approaches to the current trends, regionalism, alternative economies, ownership, audience and community engagement, interpolating kitsch and fine art, materiality and performance. Through these interests he seeks to bridge the distant relationship between the artist and the audience. Heavily influenced stylistically by Cubism, Futurism, and Constructivism, Barger collects paper ephemera as meaningful materials and combines with drawing, collage, print andsculpture. Barger grew up in Atlanta, Georgia receiving his BFA at the University of Georgia andMFA from Ohio University. He has exhibited nationally and internationally.
