February 13 – March 29, 2014
Opening Reception: Tuesday, February 25, 6-8 pm
Curated by Amy Winter, GTM Director, this exhibition will showcase artworks by members of the Queens College Art Department which demonstrate the diversity and talent of twenty artists working in the media of painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, installation, and conceptual art. Among the faculty are many internationally acclaimed individuals whose works are as diverse as the practices and styles of the artists themselves. Covering a wide range of themes from provocative, amusing, and personal to politically-engaged and technically experimental, the Godwin-Ternbach Museum is proud to present these ambitious and provocative works.

YEAR OF BRAZIL 2013-2014:
Art of South America
September 2013 – August 2014
On display in the GTM Lobby Gallery are highlights of South American artwork from the museum’s permanent collection. The exhibition showcases work ranging from the Chavin culture of Peru from 1500 BC, to 14th century AD Incan textiles, to modern artists like Venezuelan painter and sculptor Jesús Rafael Soto (1923–2005).
The main feature of the display is work by Brazilian artist, Antonio Bandeira, (1922-1967), an abstract expressionist involved in the international art scene throughout the middle of the last century. Beginning his career as a figurative artist, Bandeira moved to Paris in the mid-1940s and made strides within the lyrical abstraction movement in Europe. Bandeira split his time between Brazil and Europe showing his work internationally in Paris, London, New York, Brazil, and at the Venice Biennale. The pieces on display are from the mid-1950s when Bandeira may have been living in London. The imagery brings to mind glittering city lights, gridded rhythmic streets, and the bustle and energy of any urban center.
The exhibition will be on view throughout the 2013–2014 academic year in conjunction with college’s Year of Brazil celebration.
