DRAWING CHALLENGE XII
The Jason McCoy gallery is pleased to announce Nathaniel Galka, Maja Kihlstedt, Linda Stillman, Lorraine Tady, Jackie Tileston, and Mary Wheeler as the featured contestants of our Drawing Challenge XII which was inspired by words from Pablo Neruda's “Keeping Quiet". 

Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still
for once on the face of the earth,
let's not speak in any language;
let's stop for a second,
and not move our arms so much.

It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.

Fishermen in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would not look at his hurt hands.

Those who prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the shade, doing nothing.

What I want should not be confused
with total inactivity.
Life is what it is about;
I want no truck with death.

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us
as when everything seems dead
and later proves to be alive.

Now I'll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.

Linda Stillman, 12 Skies During Covid, 2020, ink jet print, 24 x 18 inches

“Since 2005 I have been recording the sky everyday, in various media. For 2020 I have been taking square photographs of the sky and posting them on a dedicated Instagram account. This is a montage of sky photos from late April and early May when the Corona virus was at its peak in New York. This daily practice is important to me as a way to mark time and focus on nature; during the Covid crisis it has taken on a new meaning. Like the words in this poem, I stop for a second: I marvel at the timeless beauty of the sky and think about the contrast with the troubles here on earth.”
- Linda Stillman, 2020

Wave Hill exhibition

Wave Hill exhibition
“Winter Workspace Artists: Returning to the Source”
April 2020 
This exhibition was closed prematurely due to the Coronovirus shut down.
Please check out the digital catalog.

Wave Hill chose originality and diversity of artistic approach to frame Returning to the Source. Now a decade old, the Winter Workspace program is known for bold experimentation and for artists forging novel connections to nature. Reconnecting with former artists for the exhibition was exciting and meaningful. Bringing the artworks together now underscores the breadth of exploration that happens here. On view is an incredible range of media, including animation, video, performance, works on paper, sculpture, textiles, painting and mixed media.

Exhibiting artists are Whitney Artell, Michele Brody, Sindy Butz, Julian Chams, Elisabeth Condon, Dennis RedMoon Darkeem, Francisco Donoso, Dahlia Elsayed, Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espéjo, Gwen Fabricant, Beatrice Glow, Sabrina Gschwandtner, Asuka Hishiki, Elizabeth Hoy, Nova Jiang, Yeon Jin Kim, Tamara Kostianovsky, Jessica Lagunas, Nick Lamia, Amy Lincoln, Robin Love, Next Epoch Seed Library (Anne Percoco & Ellie Irons), Paloma McGregor, Naomi Reis, Yelaine Rodriguez, Jessica Rohrer, Linda Stillman, Austin Thomas, Michael Kelly Williams and Ezra Wube.
