Orange Regional Medical Center Presents New Art Exhibit - American Dream - January 9 - February 25, 2015

January 5, 2015

Middletown, NY - Orange Regional Medical Center presents a new art exhibit featuring four regional artists whose work focuses on the influence of automobile culture on the American landscape. The exhibit, American Dream, includes artists Angela Basile, Erica Hauser, David Levy and Scott Nelson Foster whose imagery ranges from vintage roadside attractions to suburban street scenes. The opening reception with the artists will be held on Friday, January 9 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. at Orange Regional Medical Center located at 707 East Main Street, Middletown, on the ground floor gallery adjacent to the Conference Center. Refreshments will be served. The exhibit will remain on view until February 27.

In the exhibit, American Dream, artists explore ideas of memory and sense of place related to changes in the American landscape. During the late 1950s, the American interstate highway system grew quickly and, along with the automobile industry, allowed a new-found mobility that permeated American life and culture. The automobile and interstate became symbols of American individuality and freedom. The investment in infrastructure such as highways and bridges allowed people to live beyond the confines of major cities and outlying rural land was developed to build suburban housing.

Rhinebeck artist, Angela Basile, paints images of a fictional place called Whip City; she uses pastel, muted colors in her paintings to capture the quietude of suburban ranch houses in middle class neighborhoods. Basile adds anthropomorphic anatomies, such as a winking window or smiling curb, to connect the houses to humanity. Erica Hauser, a painter and illustrator from Newburgh, takes a nostalgic view of Americana and captures a specific sense of time and place through her use vintage graphics and roadside icons such as ice machines, classic Ford trucks and gas station pumps. David Levy of Monmouth County, New Jersey, combines geometric abstraction and engineered architectural realism in his series of dashboard paintings including “1968 muscle car.” Albany artist, Scott Nelson Foster, creates artwork that reflects changing ideas about the American experience, the American dream and societal relationships to the land. His paintings of the suburban landscape with houses, subdivisions, and strip- malls, evoke shared experiences.

American Dreamis part of Orange Regional’s Art Program which features changing art shows; exhibits are free and open to the public. For additional information about Orange Regional’s Art Program, contact ORMC Art Curator, Sarah Johnson at 845-333-2385.
