Chris Dacre: Man Up (War is Fun!)
December 1, 2017 – January 20, 2018
Marketview Arts (Downtown)
Perspectives on Peace Lecture: Thursday, November 9, 7:00 p.m., Demeester Recital Hall
Gallery Talk: Friday, January 19, 4:30 p.m., Marketview Arts
Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 8, 5:00 p.m.

Man Up!, a site-specific installation at Marketview Arts, is in many ways the long-awaited follow-up to Wayne White’s 2014 exhibition, FOE. Like White, Chris Dacre’s work is large-scale, playful, and involves community participation in the creation process. Dare was Artist-in Residence for November. His work draws on his experiences as a U.S. Army veteran, making satirical commentary on the complexities of war. Man Up! explores American notions of masculinity and patriotism and how that intersects with the military/industrial complex. Dacre also delivered the 3rd annual Perspectives on Peace lecture on November 9 in DeMeester Recital Hall.

Rita Whitney: Life Cycle – A Journey of New Works
January 5 – 27, 2018
Marketview Arts (Downtown)
Artist Talk//Reception: Friday, January 19, 3:00 p.m

This work is incredibly special to me, far beyond the traditional abstract style that I’ve previously worked in. Previously I have either made work that was a bit cold and calculated, purely about color and form, or work that was so intensely emotional that it was more about therapy than art. In choosing simple subjects to work from, I have found freedom from the need to create in one style or the other, and am able to practice blending my personal experiences with my artists aesthetic in a softer, more accessible way.
– Rita Whitney



Amy Boone-McCreesh: Taste and Privilege
November 8 – December 20, 2017
York College Galleries (Main Campus)
Lecture/Reception: Wednesday, November 8, 5:30 p.m., Demeester Recital Hall

Amy Boone-McCreesh is a York County native now based in Baltimore whose work has been featured in 11 solo and two-person exhibitions and 29 group exhibitions since earning her MFA six years ago, including shows in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. She has won several significant awards and in 2016/2017 served as Visiting Professor at Dickinson College. Taking inspiration from celebratory and funerary displays in various cultures, Amy explores decoration and human relationships in her work, which tends toward visual density with saturated color and abundant texture that sometimes challenges viewers’ spatial awareness.

Nick Gorbey: Lokahi (Fall Senior Solo Exhibition)
December 1 – 20, 2017
Coni Wolf Gallery (2nd Floor,) Marketview Arts (Downtown)
Artist Talk/Reception: Thursday, November 30, 4:00 p.m.

“As a young boy I was fascinated by the ocean and it’s mysteries. I spent most of my days playing in the sand and swimming way out past where I could stand. Spending my life this way I developed a great deal of respect for the ocean and its inhabitants. From that respect grew a knowledge of the role the ocean plays in the sustainability of life on this planet. I was eager to learn more and in my research I was particularly interested about the whales and their role which lead me to where I am today.

The project Lokahi focuses primarily on the whales and how they are being effected by underwater sound pollution. With big sources like high powered sonar they are bombarded daily with loud sounds while trying to navigate and survive. Sound is killing thousands of whales and we need the whales for the health of the earth. Whales balance the oceanic ecosystem which in return directly effects the health of the ocean and weather. Whales also help filter the air of carbon making it healthier for us to breathe. This project got its name Lokahi because in Hawaiian that means working together in harmony, and that is exactly what we need to do to fix this problem.” – Nick Gorbey ’17


Ophelia The Second Half

Ophelia Chambliss: 2/2 The Second Half
November 2 – 25, 2017
Marketview Arts (Downtown)
Artist Talk//Reception: Thursday, November 16, 5:30 p.m

This collection of work is transitional and represents the second half of my life in that I am reclaiming my time from having been a wife, from being a mother, from all the things that we are required to do throughout life. The representations in these pieces are eclectic, as I put whatever comes to my heart and mind, on canvas or any other surface that is available.
This show has everything from African Colonization to pretty pink flowers. Some pieces contain discourse and conversation, while others are visual, mental massages for the mind and the eyes. I love every piece in this show for what it does, and what it means. 
-Ophelia M. Chambliss

Paul Rucker: Stories from the Trees (Artist Lecture/ Performance)
Saturday, October 7, 2017, 7:00PM
DeMeester Recital Hall (Beside the York College Galleries in Wolf Hall)

Visiting artist and 2017 Guggenheim Fellow Paul Rucker, whose exhibition REWIND is on display in the York College Galleries until October 21, is returning by popular demand for an encore performance in DeMeester Recital Hall (beside the York College Galleries in Wolf Hall) on Saturday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m. Stories from the Trees is a multi-disciplinary performance with Paul Rucker performing a live soundtrack on cello to re-imagine vintage lynching postcards that have been animated. Based on one survey, 4,742 African Americans were murdered by lynching between 1882 and 1968. Others were lynched as well, but not nearly in the same numbers- including people of Caucasian, Chinese, Latino, and Jewish descent. This performance will bring to life the different scenarios of lynchings, places where communities gathered with women and children proudly watching these atrocities. The images will suggest those of postcards that were made from photographs of lynchings as common practice. Many of these postcards are from the  personal collection of the artist, Paul Rucker and will be on view during the show. The artist will also take questions from the audience both from the stage and in person inside the gallery.

Limited edition REWIND screen prints, made in collaboration with artist/printer Adam DelMarcelle, will be available for purchase by cash and check.


Martin Swift painting

Martin Swift: CARNIS
September 1 – October 21, 2017
Gallery Hall (3rd Floor, Marketview Arts)

My work explores the nuances of masculinity in America. Due to unhealthy societal pressure to exhibit traditionally masculine traits like aggression, strength, dominance, courage, and honor males in the United States not only objectify other genders, but themselves as well. This creates something that I refer to as the Paradox of Manliness.

Objectification is presented in a range of symptoms. From body image issues and eating disorders to unhealthy competition, harassment, and violence.Pressures to adhere to a specific physical and intellectual aesthetic leave men feeling inadequate. The expectation that men confront the world impulsively and aggressively contributes to a cultural rejection of male empathy and compassion. My work depicts a spectrum of masculinity and emotional transparency. The paintings celebrate flesh, body modification, stretchmarks, and scars.

My work is a direct response to this Paradox, an acknowledgment of what lies beyond manliness.

Carnis is a collection of pieces that represent the evolution of this series.

Martin Swift: Vacancy 
September 1 – October 21
Market view Gallery (1st Floor, Marketview Arts)

Through painting and illustration, I seek to reframe the harsh void that exists between childhood and maturity as a world for the absurd.  In crafting an abstract narrative punctuated by diverse visual cues and cultural imagery, I trust the viewer to resituate that which I render through figuration and create context and meaning for themselves. I approach my work with a sense of acute deliberateness and endeavor to present a complex map to my world of the weird.
