Please join us for an opening reception to celebrate Time and Again, an exhibit of new work from distinguished contemporary artists living and working in Germantown, New York. Featuring works by Melora Kuhn, William Stone, Jersey Walz, Dawn Breeze, Nancy Barber, Michael Eudy, Stephen Reynolds, Pamela J. Wallace, Dana Gentile, Valerie Shaff and Artseeds—children from the Throwing Seeds arts class, with a musical performance by Alexander Turnquist.
This inaugural show marks the official launch of Instar Lodge, a creative space offering workshops and lectures, artist residencies, performances and screenings, a dedicated writing room and innovative arts programming for children. Instar’s mission is to foster community, while making artistic opportunities accessible to all, with special attention given towards supporting women and mother artists.
Housed in a former Odd Fellows lodge, Instar boasts an array of stunning, inspiring spaces that beg to be seen and explored in person. With Founder and Director Dawn Breeze at the helm, Instar is destined to become an artistic hub, drawing the best and brightest of the region to gather and collaborate.
Time and Again takes its name from the notion of re- as in everything that is done again, such as: reimagining, reliving and reinventing. Breeze, who organized the show, saw the theme as a through line between the featured works, and the revival of the once lively lodge now being reinhabited with new Odd Fellows. “It's often the reexamination of something ordinary that illuminates the extraordinary,” said Breeze.
