Odyssey
"Fall Exhibitions 2019"
Odyssey (diptych), 2018, dry chalk pastel on paper, 60 inches x 34 inches each panel

CYNTHIA-REEVES opens an exhibition of new pastels by noted landscape artist Ray Ruseckas, in concert with the poetry of Alice B. Fogel, Poet Laureate of New Hampshire, with a reception from 5-7 p.m. There will be a poetry reading at 6 p.m. followed by a Q&A with the poet and artist.

ODYSSEY is the result of a unique collaboration, in which Alice Fogel has written poems inspired by Ray Ruseckas’ pastels and, in response, Ray has created pastels inspired by Alice’s writing. This exhibition is part of an ongoing series of collaborations supported by the gallery, bringing art and poetry together. A new volume of poetry, Shoot the Moon, featuring new poems by New England-based poets paired with gallery artists, will be on view.

Ray Ruseckas’ work is marked by a certain sense of mystery: he is sensitive to the nuances of the changing light and thus tonal shifts of the landscape under the quixotic New England skies. He has great respect for the what the land has to offer: its depth of color, the texture of the fields, the mass of tree branches, the weight of the sky, the volume of the landscape itself. These elements cohere to create a strong sense of ‘witnessing’ the landscape, of participating in the landscape.... an unusual and generous experience for the viewer.

Mara Williams, Chief Curator of the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, commented: “Ruseckas manipulates pastels like no other artist. His surfaces retain only a vestige of the dry, velvety softness we usually associate with the medium. He achieves a more painterly, liquid pooling of colors, both subtle and rich. Deep earth tones melt into gossamer tints, and he deploys a seemingly infinite range of blacks and whites.”

The artist writes. “I tend to focus more on the overlooked landscape, a landscape void of blue skies and autumn colors. I'm attracted to a subtler beauty — the quiet, the subdued, gray-blue, private, even melancholic, landscape.” This new series of work underscores his sensitivity to the landscape, and his confident use of pastel to create a complex, textural surface.

Alice B. Fogel is New Hampshire's State Poet Laureate (2014-2019). She earned her BA in art and literature from Antioch College, and her MA in poetry from the University of New Hampshire – a combined passion that foreshadowed her abiding inquiry into the intersection of art and poetry.

She is the author of five poetry collections, including: Be That Empty (2007); Interval: Poems Based upon Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” (2015), which won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature, and the 2016 NH Literary Award in Poetry; and A Doubtful House (2017).

She has been a ten-time Pushcart nominee, and her poems appear in many journals and anthologies, including the Best American Poetry and Robert Hass’s column and anthology, Poet’s Choice. Fogel is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship, among numerous other awards. Critics reviews include:

“Brooding and meditative, Fogel is a poet alert to every nuance of the inner life, a true phenomenologist of the soul in that New England tradition to which both Emily Dickinson and Jane Kenyon belong.” (Charles Simic)

“Challenging, wildly inventive, philosophical….reveals and deepens our understand of the strangeness within the ordinary.” (John Sibley Williams)

“The marvelous specificities of her poems demonstrate a fierce and admirable passion…with a steadfast gaze at the natural world as intense and perfectly rendered as that of Rilke’s panther.” (Publishers Weekly)

CYNTHIA-REEVES represents an international roster of established artists who share a process-apparent sensibility in their work. We are committed to artwork that demonstrates an authentic voice, an innovative use of materials, and an appreciation of the mark in diverse media: site-based installation, video, sculpture, painting and works on paper. We initiate public art projects in the US and abroad, placing large-scale works in the public domain for both permanent and temporary installations in such locations as New York City, London, Boston, San Diego, Miami, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Las Vegas and Dallas. CYNTHIA-REEVES gallery is on the campus of MASS MoCA in the Berkshires, in addition to its active off-site public art program, and art curation services for companies throughout the United States.
