  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm

  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm

    January 27, 2019  3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    National Lighthouse Museum, 200 The Promenade at Lighthouse Point, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Emmy Award winner, Dolores N. Morris will speak about her book, The Soldier That Wagged Her Tail - A Black Veteran's Story of WWII, which chronicles her father William A. Morris Jr.’s wartime experiences with his dog, Trixie, by his side. The story of William A. Morris Jr.’s service in the all black 369th Coast Artillery Regiment and the 4251st Trucking Company during World War II is a story of a black soldier from Staten Island fighting for a country that is still wrestling with the ugliness of racism. Mr. Morris departed from Pouch Terminal, Stapleton and also returned there at the end of his tour of duty.
    William and Trixie’s journey from the horrors of war in Europe to the arms of Morris’ family back home is a story of hope, courage, faith and love. More than just a story of a black soldier and his dog, The Soldier That Wagged Her Tail holds a universal message that inspires all of us.

    Admission is $10 for guests and $5 for Museum members. Register here: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07efwrm3ai97c2d1bf&llr=gh9s9ogab&showPage=true&fbclid=IwAR24H5WfRWvll2PgzDYNC42rdE-FU9hHZnXrv98EnmMQos_aB2gWy2Ba8IM

    Casa Belevedere, The Italian Cultural Foundation, 79 Howard Ave, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    On this evening, Anita will present a short lecture and DVD about the regions of Lazio and Campania, highlighting well known areas such as Rome and Naples, but also lesser known places in those regions such as Viterbo and Civita di Bagnoregio in Lazio, and Sorrento and the Island of Procida in Campania.

    In addition, Anita will then use a power-point presentation to illustrate and discuss a private group trip/tour to her favorite place in Italy: Naples.

    Anita says “Naples is the stepchild of Italy.” Why? “Because first of all, when you say Naples to most people, the first thing they say is Oh, don’t go there, it’s dangerous and dirty! The second reason is because none of the people who say this have ever been there!"

    She will explain the many reasons why Naples should be on everyone’s travel list. The city is filled with art treasures, churches of magnificent design, fabulous food and those views along Lungomare... the reason it is said “See Naples and Die!!”

    She will outline her itinerary and hope to inspire you to join her on a trip to this beautiful treasure-filled city that she knows and loves so well.

    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm

  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm

Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

    February 10, 2019  5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
    St. George Theatre, 35 Hyatt St, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    Join us for a screening of the classic 1992 film The Bodyguard as part of the 2019 “Better on the Big Screen” Classic Movie Series sponsored by Williams Eye Works and BoroughFive Pictures.

    https://williamseyeworks.com/
    https://www.boroughfivepictures.com/

    About The Bodyguard:

    In her film debut, Whitney Houston plays Rachel Marron, a pop music superstar. It seems that one of her fans is stalking her and has threatened to kill her, so Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner), a professional bodyguard and former Secret Service agent, is hired to protect her.

    The film then follows Rachel Marron’s life from performance to performance. Each performance features her singing a song (including Houston’s hits I Will Always Love You and I Have Nothing) that reflects her emotional state. Frank Farmer successfully protects her from danger. Subsequently, and possibly as a result of his protection and the trust thus inspired, Rachel Marron falls in love with Frank, and, though he tries to keep their relationship professional, they sleep together. However, recognizing that their relationship puts her and her family in danger, he breaks-off the affair and heightens moves to protect her (many such previous moves were shot down by Rachel). Ironically, in an effort to separate Rachel from her own world, Frank introduces Rachel to his own father and personal life. As the story follows a number of potential stalkers, Rachel must put her trust in Frank ahead of her own selfishness and desire for success; as Frank must face the fact that the threat may not be what was expected. In the end, Frank’s duty is fulfilled, having successfully protected Rachel, and they part with a kiss. Frank then moves on to his next assignment…to protect an archbishop.

  • “JOHN FOXELL: MEMENTO MORI,” AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE ART AND LIFE OF A LOCAL LEGEND

    January 24, 2019  12:00 pm - April 27, 2019  7:00 pm
    ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts, 7 Navy Pier Ct, Staten Island, NY 10304, USA

    Beloved by local residents for decades prior to his December 2016 death, Foxell was known as “the unofficial mayor of Port Richmond.” On display at the arts council’s ArtSpace gallery will be Foxell’s assemblages and collage-based works, many of which reflect or satirize politics on Staten Island, as well as selected poetry, writings, film, and interviews by and with the artist. The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm

The exhibit will also include photographs of Foxell’s home that were taken by Time magazine Editor-at-Large Paul Moakley and a portrait of the artist that was painted by Robert Bunkin, a figurative painter and former curator at the Staten Island Museum.

    Categorized as outsider art, Foxell’s assemblages are made from found objects such as children’s dolls and toys, buttons, action figures, plastic (and real) skulls, Asian shrines, and African figurines. Photographs and headlines cut from local newspapers make the artist’s point of view known in his more political collage-based pieces and are enlisted as titles or focal points in his assemblages, shedding some light on the intent behind his juxtapositions. Many works reflect a fascination with the dark and macabre. Others seem to mirror, and critique, pop culture, mass consumerism, and current politics. Still others explore varying states of mental health. The works were created after the events of 9/11, which Foxell witnessed firsthand in lower Manhattan.

    Exhibit will run through April 27, 2019.

    ArtSpace Gallery Hours are:
    Thursday & Friday: 2pm – 7pm
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm
