Bruce Museum Registrar and Curator Kirsten Reinhardt will speak about the Museum's collection of Navajo textiles, from their history in Native American weaving traditions to the artisanal skill of the weavers. The discussion will also cover traveler and collector Miss Margaret Cranford (1887 – 1974), whose passion for preserving these Native American items formed the foundation of the Museum's ethnographic collection. Lecture followed by tea and scones. Registration required; free with admission. Please make a reservation at brucemuseum.org and pay for your Museum entry at the front desk upon arrival.
A Continuous Thread: Navajo Weaving Traditions
Through November 25, 2018
Navajo rugs are unique because their warp (the vertical strings on a loom) is one, long continuous piece of wool thread. Once the warp is set on the loom, the size of the rug cannot be altered. This weaving method requires the weaver to plan the design and pattern of the rug to fit precisely into the predetermined length of the rug. The ability to conceive and execute two dimensional designs in extraordinary patterns and colors set Navajo weavers apart from the creators of other Native rugs and blankets. Knowledge of this traditional process is an important cultural tradition that has been maintained through intergenerational instruction and mentoring despite the obstacles of displacement, discrimination and isolation experienced by the Navajo Nation.
The Navajo were first recognized as the finest weavers of small horse blankets, placed under saddles to protect the horse, after the Spanish introduced both sheep and horses to the American Southwest region in the mid-1500s. Influenced by Pueblo weavers, the Navajo then made large blankets which were prized throughout the Southwest and across the Great Plains for their quality as outerwear. Later, trading post economics led to a transition to rug making, a tradition that remains strong today.
This exhibition traces the history of the Navajo weaving tradition from the earliest Mexican-inspired saltillos, c. 1880, to the mid-20th century pictorial rugs from the collection of Miss Margaret Cranford (1887 – 1974), who was a resident of Greenwich. At the age of 21, the diminutive Miss Cranford began a lifelong pursuit of travelling across the United States and the world, collecting fine decorative art, jewelry and textiles. Her numerous gifts of rare objects of the highest quality are the foundation of the Bruce Museum’s Native American ethnographic collection.
Bruce Museum Exhibition: ReTooled
ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection, an engaging and thought-provoking look at the unexpected subject of tools, will be on view at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, CT, September 21 through December 30, 2018.
Featuring more than 40 richly imaginative, quirky, and thought-provoking paintings, sculptures, photographs, and sketches, ReTooled celebrates the prevalence of tools in our lives with art that magically transforms utilitarian objects into fanciful works that speak of beauty, insight, and wit.
The Museum’s signature fall exhibition, ReTooled profiles 28 visionary artists from the Hechinger Collection and includes major artists such as Arman, Richard Estes, Howard Finster, Red Grooms, Jacob Lawrence, and Fernand Léger; photographers Berenice Abbott and Walker Evans; as well as pop artists Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and James Rosenquist.
Some of these artists portray tools with reverence to emphasize their purity of design, while others disfigure and transform implements to highlight their obsolescence in today’s world of glass, steel, and technology.
ReTooled: Highlights from the Hechinger Collection was organized by International Arts and Artists, Washington, DC. Gift of John and June Hechinger. The exhibition is supported by Northern Trust, Turner Construction Co., The Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund, and the Connecticut Office of the Arts.

Devorah Sperber + MARCK Exhibition
Through the Looking Glass: alternative viewpoints
October 12 - November 15, 2018
The two artists featured in this exhibition utilize their respective mediums to draw the viewer into a wonderland of optical illusion, playful visual layering and unexpected use of space and scale. The human visage and form take the thematic center stage, presented in the gargantuan pixilated enlargements of Devorah Sperber’s thread spool installations, and the miniaturized women of MARCK’s video sculptures, dancing in an elegant decorative case, trapped in a spinning tank, or posing as the power source of a light box. Invited to experience the effect of the proverbial ‘rabbit hole’, the viewer will discover a gallery presentation at once foreign, yet familiar; strange, yet enchanting. The walls come alive with multiple moving picture screens, constructed in wood or metal, brightly painted or distressed; wind blowing, water running, colors draping. In contrast, Sperber’s flat inverted pointillist constructions seem oddly remote and static; yet, upon closer inspection - literally through a crystal orb - the images flip upright and appear in realistic 3-D form. Expect no ordinary art browse – the eyes are engaged as never before, the brain challenged and teased, and the spirits uplifted by this delightful pairing of conceptual and technical artistry.

Paintings, Sculptures, Prints and Site-Specific Large Scale Installations
October 11- November 7, 2018 at The Bendheim Gallery
DECONSTRUCTION seeks to link the historical origins of high art with contemporary images and iconography, reinventing modern culture's interpretation of art. Often taking familiar images and objects, these artists apply their own unique contemporary techniques, evocatively testing senses and triggering memories along the way. In a Warhol-esque manner, Takashi Murakami successfully incorporates his themes of historical Japanese prints, into his pop culture images. KAWS promotes ubiquitous comic references, Jim Dine ironically presents utilitarian objects, Thomas Brenner fragments familiar industrial tools, challenging perceptions. Margaret Esme Simon and Peri Schwartz imbue a subtle iconography to simple and irreverent objects. Similarly addressing issues of scale, material and consumerism, Ana de Orbegoso recreates sacred, ancient Peruvian artefacts from fiberglass creating luminescent objects of beauty. By subverting what is historical with what is new, blending and reinventing across a wide range of mediums, a new cultural form is created, bringing with it recognition of the past and adding a new relevance to cultural heritage.

The Greenwich Art Society has served the greater Greenwich community since its founding in 1912. Known originally as The Greenwich Society of Artists, its founders and pioneer members included many distinguished artists and art patrons. Its first president was Edward Clark Potter, sculptor of the lions at the New York Public Library. Early members were associated with the famous Cos Cob School, several of them leaders in the American Impressionist movement.
Exhibitions of the Society were held in the hilltop house donated to the town by Robert M. Bruce, when it became the Bruce Museum. In 1928 the prestigious Annual Members Juried Exhibition moved to the art gallery at the Greenwich Library.
Today, its quarters at the Senior/Arts Center on Greenwich Avenue include a teaching studio and office on the third floor, and a gallery for changing exhibitions of works by members, faculty and other selected artist, on the second.
The Society presents annual exhibitions with distinguished jurors from NYC museums such as The Whitney, MOMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Further information can be found on the Society’s website at www.greenwichartsociety.org

Tuesday, October 23, Opening Reception, 5pm - 7pm, Victoria Montesinos Art Show
Complimentary rose’ will be provided by Old Greenwich Wine Merchants on Tuesday, October 23.
Vicky is an artist with a great respect and reverence for tradition. Her new and highly original floral paintings continue the genre as defined by the masters: Odilon Redon, Georgia O'Keefe and Lowell Nesbitt. A Montesinos bouquet is full of passion and mystery. Patterns peek from under magnificent colors and the viewers is offered a window into the artist's private world. Daughter of the acclaimed Mexican film director Fernando A. Rivero, Montesinos's works have been greatly influenced by the ambiance and theatricality of the film world that she grew up in. Reflected in her portraits of men and women is the technique of a master, the unfettered emotion of a child and sensual quality that fills each canvas with a passion for life. Montesinos's work reflect her sophisticated and cultured background: college in Mexico and Argentina, and apprenticeships with master painters Jose Bardasano in Mexico and Quinquella Martin in Buenos Aires; all have given a sophisticated quality to her work. It was in Bardasano's studio that Vicky learned the very rigorous and laborious "Veladuras" technique of layering many thin layers of paint to achieve the densely transparent and incandescent look of her work. The luminosity is derived from the silver and gold leaf she often applies to a canvas before she begins to paint. Her first U.S. show received rave reviews in San Fransisco. Her first one person show was in SoHo, New York, where every original painting was sold during the opening. Her limited edition lithographs from 1984 to 1998 are completely exhausted and many recent editions are nearly sold out. Victoria Montesinos was born in Mexico City, the daughter of a well-known Mexican movie director, Fernando A. Rivero, and Maty Humana. Sent to live with her grandparents around the age of two, it was not long after that time that she started drawing and painting in response to the serious temperament of her grandmother. According to Vicky, "I became accustomed to enjoying my own world, Drawing was an escape from my communication problems. Besides, drawing was highly rewarding to me. When she was just twelve years old, Vicky's father noticed her talent and offered her the opportunity to study painting with a friend of his, the great Spanish painter, JoseBardasano. Having just opened a painting academy, Bardasano welcomed the young Montesinos to study under his direction for five years, initially during school vacations so that she could finish secondary school. This was the beginning of her brilliant career as an artist. Vicky has always believed in painting with total integrity, without submitting herself to the judgment of the market, style or expectations of others. The topics she depicts in her paintings are not the product of intellectual analysis, but arise from tastes and affinities that take shape gradually in her mind. When her ideas become clearly defined, Vicky begins to transform the canvas by abolishing its emptiness and nothingness: she stains the cloth, marks the lines, and then continues with brushstrokes, guiding herself intuitively and wisely until reaching the grand finale. In general, she likes to work on various easels at the same time. Montesinos works without deliberations, on large canvases that show ethereal atmospheres overflowing with extravagance and sensuality. The slender bodies she paints appear enveloped in marked brushstrokes that serve as both mantles and tunics. The flowers have silk petals, and invite us to discover their interiors. With her brush, Vicky knows how to share her great sensitivity, and for this reason her paintings captivate collectors and lovers of great art from around the world.

About the author: Ezra Lovecroft writes poems for people who think they don’t like poetry. His poems are journeys into extraordinary situations from everyday occurrences. Words and phrases are psychological studies that become visually woven on a loom as we read them. They manifest into audible textiles; colorful, visual, and visceral. Like silk threads stitched on ragged linen strips they manifest as a vegetable dyed tapestry in our imaginations.
