Dual show will open at Chace
Chace-Randall Gallery proudly presents On Paper: Nature, Line and Layer, an exhibit of new works by Rimer Cardillo and Marie Vickerilla, opening August 15 and hanging until October 5. A reception for the artists is Saturday, Aug. 16, from 5 to 7 p.m. A world-renowned printmaker and installation artist, Cardillo’s current work juxtaposes the ancient art of woodcuts with modern photographic technology. The imagery is of his Hudson Valley pond and bird ranches of South America—fusing the natural world of his home in the United States with his native Uruguay. Working in oil paint, graphite, wax, and fabric, Vickerilla renders abstract imagery by making a mark on paper, covering it up, wiping it away, then working to retrieve part of it back.
Rimer Cardillo received an M.F.A. from the National School of Fine Arts in Uruguay in 1968, and studied in Germany at the Weissenssee School of Art and Architecture in Berlin and the Leipzig School of Graphic Arts. He has had solo exhibitions throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States.
Marie Vickerilla received her MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School for the Arts, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson. Her exhibition history includes a highly successful show at Chace-Randall (2005), the Simon Gallery, Morristown, NJ; Park West Gallery, Kingston; the National Juried Show, Allentown Art Museum, Allentown, PA; and Gallery 120, New York City. She won honorable mention in the 1993 National Small Works Exhibition and is the recipient of a NYS Council on the Arts, Decentralized Grant.
