Brunch and discussion with Peter Rutkoff: The City

Produced in the late 1930s when the industrial cities and towns of America were polluting the atmosphere at an incredible rate, The City, commissioned by the American Institute of Planners, promoted a romantic vision—the building of planned green cities such as Greenbelt, Maryland—and thus tried to encourage an exodus from overcrowded and “evil” cities to peaceful suburbs (following the film’s logic, these should emulate New England towns).

Tickets may be purchased at the door.

Pooh Kaye’s videos are a struggle with the domesticated landscape while her portraits of the forest show something more peaceful, aspirational, and tenderly bonded to the location. Ms. Kaye’s work has recently been profiled in Art in America and Art Forum.

Cara Wood-Ginder’s elegant paintings on wood feature everyday objects, icon-like in their treatment and floating on a black field, anchored by enigmatic markings in each corner of the paintings. Her work is part of notable public and private collections and she showed with OK Harris, New York, NY through 2010.
