Nearly 20 Artists Address The Subject Of "No Longer Supported"

Ever evolving technology and software can make one feel that they're "no longer supported" - a subject that a group of talented artists will explore in Sara Nightingale Gallery's latest gallery

No Longer Supported, which features works by Stephanie Brody-Lederman, Peter Buchman, Darlene Charneco, Bill Claps, Rossa Cole, James Croak, Rose Marie Cromwell, Barbara Friedman, Peter Garfield, Shirley Irons, Christian Little, Elena Lyakir, Christa Maiwald, Karyn Mannix, Bonnie Rychlak, Maggie Simonelli, Libby Wadsworth, and Ross Watts, will encompass pieces that revolve around time, or are time-sensitive.

"I love that the title of the exhibition, No Longer Supported, could be interpreted in multiple ways," Sara Nightingale, owner of Sara Nightingale Gallery, reflected. "I'm using it literally to refer to software that's about to expire - but the show doesn't have a lot of tech driven works in it. It's the idea that time is running out."

The artists' works translate the exhibition's theme in many different ways. Rychlak employs time as a component of process for Morphed Florida Drains, works that are composed of hand carved cast wax that utilized Florida sunshine to warp and disfigure, resulting in one of a kind formations. Charneco's Nail Meditations, a computer's motherboard, are visually similar to an ancient archeological site, allowing the admirer to reflect on whether the series is meant to represent the past, the future or both.

The copper leaf in Simonelli's pieces oxidizes over time, naturally varying the hues of the paintings, and Maiwald's Jackson Pollock's inspired embroidery and cake installation showcases an actual piece of cake, making it really time-sensitive. Claps' mixed media works reinterprets nature motifs from 18th Century Japanese woodblock prints through photography and contemporary resources.

"The show also questions whether the advancement of time is a progressive or regressive act," added Nightingale.

No Longer Supported will open on Saturday, March 24, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition will remain on view through Thursday, April 19.

A percentage of proceeds from sales will be donated to the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corp.
