Artists Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner combine strengths in this two-person show. Stinson is exhibiting selections from several bodies of work, including illustrative pieces from her “Time Marking,” “Arabesque,” and “Textere” series. Hung as wall pieces, these works complement a collection of Turner’s functional pottery. Both artists prefer unassuming forms on which to work surface inflections and layer painterly glazes. Both often choose treatments that convey a sense of inner luminosity emerging through strata. A multi-part installation from the “Textere Series” – collaborative work by Stinson and her husband, glass artist Ken Carder (above) – seems almost a three-dimensional extraction of the intuitive, gestural linear decorations found throughout the show.

The Paul Taylor Dance Company, established in 1954, is one of the world’s most highly respected and sought-after ensembles. Artistic Director Paul Taylor is considered by many to be America’s greatest living choreographer—a founder and towering icon of modern dance. This season’s program consists of “Mercuric Tidings,” described by New York Post’s Clive Barnes as “Danced for the sheer joy of it, the controlled expenditure of animal energy, poetry expressed as a time and motion of study, young people cavorting with the kinetic propensities of young godlets.” Additionally, the company will present the timeless, romantic masterpiece “Roses” and a newly commissioned work by another choreographer for the company.
