“SWEETNESS IN THE RHYTHM
AT THE GORDON PARKS GALLERY
NEW ROCHELLE, NY,
October 10, 2007 – The College of New Rochelle’s (CNR) School of New
Resources (SNR) will present the exhibit Sweetness in the Rhythm of
Jazz: Herbert Gentry’s Inner Dance featuring “Personal Archaeology” by
Aiki at the Gordon A. Parks Gallery & Cultural Arts Center located
on the School’s John Cardinal O’Connor Campus in the South Bronx. The
dual exhibit, curated by Gordon Parks’ daughter Toni Parks, will run
from October 13 through December 14. There will be an opening reception
on Saturday, October 13, from 5 – 8 pm. The reception is private; press
is welcome to attend.
“I paint my experiences,” says artist Herbert Gentry.
Observers of Gentry’s work are confronted with chromatic distillations,
circular gestures, and figurative abstraction; shape, sound, metaphor
and rhythms govern the integration of his line and color.
Artist AIKI (Karen Kelley) was graduated from Sarah
Lawrence College in 1962 and has been experimenting and expanding her
vision ever since. Her art includes the written word as well as
collage and watercolor.
The Gordon A. Parks Gallery & Cultural Arts Center
reflects the diverse interests of renowned photographer, film maker,
and writer Gordon Parks. The Center serves both Campus and community
through a variety of multicultural activities, including art exhibits,
lectures, poetry readings, and musical events.
