  • “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

    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

    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.

  • “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
    Saturdays: 12pm – 5pm

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    Opening Reception Admission: Free
    2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
    Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Buildings C & G)
    On display March 2 – May 5, 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

  • “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

     

  • "In My Element," a photography exhibit

    March 2, 2019  12:00 pm - May 5, 2019  5:00 pm
    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

  • “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

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

  • The Indigenous Peoples and First European Immigrants, a lecture

    March 10, 2019  3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    National Lighthouse Museum, 200 The Promenade at Lighthouse Point, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    This talk will examine evidence of the presence of the indigenous Lenape on Staten island. Some of the evidence is based on artifacts and human remains collected by amateur relic hunters and professional archaeologists, but this evidence alone gives the wrong impression that the Lenape are an ancient and lost group of people. We will also explore the ethnohistorical evidence of the original inhabitants of Staten Island revealing that the Lenape are very much alive although displaced from the homeland that their ancestors once called Eghquaons and Aquehonga Manacknong.

    Tickets are $10 for guests and $5 for Museum members. Light refreshments...for info/reservations - lighthousemuseum.org, info@lighthousemuseum.org , Tel.# 718 -390- 0040

  • “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

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

  • “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

    Newhouse Center Of Contemporary Art, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island, NY 10301, USA

    In My Element is a combined show of two photographers who are separated in age by several decades but who both gravitate to capturing photos of four basic elements of earth, air, fire, and water.

    Gail Middleton can always be found in solitary locations, appreciating the happenstance of nature and trying to capture a moment in time to reflect the passing beauty. Mike Shane is a kinetic searcher whose interaction with people and elements are breathtaking. Their combined images will make you think, transport you to a place of beauty and wonderment, or just capture you with an almost impossible combination of perceived movement.

    About “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies”: It seems that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies — all but the Teen Titans. Robin is bound and determined to remedy that situation by becoming a star instead of a sidekick. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their hearts, the Teen Titans head to Hollywood to fulfill their dreams. Things soon go awry, however, when a supervillain plans to take over the planet — putting the very fate of the young heroes on the line. Rated PG | Running Time: 1h 24min

  • Guyon Tavern Benefit Concert

    March 16, 2019  7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
    Historic Richmond Town, 441 Clarke Ave, Staten Island, NY 10306, USA

    Historic Richmond Town’s Guyon Tavern, located along Richmond Road, has been a cornerstone of the Staten Island community for nearly two hundred years. It’s home to the renowned Tavern Concert Series. In past years, performers and audience members praised the acoustics and the ambiance of the candle-lit building and the cozy wood stove.

    This year an automobile accident left the Guyon Tavern badly damaged. All programming, including the Tavern Concert Series, have been postponed until the necessary $60,000 is raised and repairs made. While the organization is actively pursuing an insurance claim, we are eager to commence restoration of our beloved building.

    To help bring back this community asset, a benefit concert will be held at Historic Richmond Town in the Third County Courthouse on Saturday, March 16, 2019 from 7:30-10:00PM featuring the music of Irish Stout and The Wahoo Skiffle Crazies. All tickets sales from this event will enable Historic Richmond Town to make the crucial repairs to the Tavern.

    We look forward to restoring the building in time for the 2020 Tavern Concert Series.
