After training as a photographer at Yale, Diana MacKown worked alongside Louise Nevelson in New York City. These photographs offer a unique view into Nevelson’s studio, trips abroad and finished work, like Nevelson Chapel when it was first completed. Whether candid or formal, Diana’s lens is clever, playful and sharp. On display in the Narthex and Living Room galleries.
In her exhibition, Chellis Baird paves the entryway of Nevelson Chapel with her sculptural paintings. Baird’s work lies at the intersection of painting, sculpture, and textiles. She believes that through texture, evidence of the human hand, and emotional sensations through color, one can move the viewer's eye from screens to the physical world. On display in the Narthex and Living Room galleries.

For Priest, jazz evokes “the rich, surprising content I want my paintings to offer my audience,” and this exhibition is the latest refinement of her technique, which layers multiple senses onto paper to capture permanently the fleeting moments, rhythm, and dynamism of soulful jazz performance.
The work presented here are my efforts to redefine what is important to me about painting. They are a departure from my previous figurative work based on observation. The marks now liberated form the image explode off the page. These works are joyous, vivid displays of color, paint, and pattern. The images are worked and reworked until they come together in a surprising and often unpredictable way. They are a reflection of how art can be used to adapt to a new environment and the personal challenges of change. Perhaps they capture the energy of New York City.
