Please join Staten Island sculptor Janice Patrignani for a reception marking her current solo exhibition, “Profusion,” on Sunday, March 24 from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Wagner Gallery, off the Union Atrium. “Profusion” is on display through March 30.
Included in the exhibition:
- “Infinity,” a large, flowing installation of texture and shadow constructed from World War II parcel post parachutes, and
- “Transcendence,” a multi-media commentary on implements of subservient drudgery that simultaneously celebrates the creative handwork of women across the generations. (A detail from “Transcendence” illustrates this post.)
Patrignani, a graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Architecture and Art, received her K-12 New York State Teaching Certification from the Bank Street College of Education/Parsons School of Design. She teaches ceramic and mixed media art classes for Wagner College External Programs and orchestrates art residencies in New York City Public schools. The gallery at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater estate, in Pennsylvania, recently exhibited her work. In 2012, her sculpture was accepted for the Best of America Sculpture book series.
Patrignani is teaching two courses for Wagner College External Programs this semester:
