Through September 24, 2018 - Tarrytown

A groundbreaking new exhibition of works by legendary artist Louis Comfort Tiffany will fill the Lyndhurst Mansion and gallery this summer. Charting the development of Tiffany's career from the 1870s through the early 1900s, the display features more than 50 pieces, focusing primarily on early and rarely-exhibited works. The exhibit includes glass and mosaics from the Haworth Collection in Accrington, England, the hometown of Tiffany's glass foreman, rare textiles from the Mark Twain House, rarely seen early paintings from the Brooklyn and Nassau County Museums and furniture and decorative arts from the Driehaus and other notable private collections. Based on new research, the exhibition conjures little known and unexpected dimensions of Tiffany's career. Works in the exhibition reveal his radical exploration of racial inequality in the North, his work with the Jewish community on synagogues in Albany and Buffalo when such intermingling was not common, his pictorial documentation of rampant industrialization along the Hudson River, his adoption of Orientalist subjects, as well as his close but often difficult relationships with women patrons, collaborators, and designers.

Georgia O'Keeffe: Visions of Hawai'I - The New York Botanical Garden
Through October 28, 2018 - Bronx

Pioneering American modernist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887–1986) conveyed a distinct sense of place with innovative depictions of her surroundings, from stark New Mexican landscapes to New York cityscapes. Yet flowers and plants were subjects that engaged O'Keeffe throughout her career. Curated by Theresa Papanikolas, Ph.D., of the Honolulu Museum of Art, this landmark exhibition will offer a rare focus on 20 of O'Keeffe's depictions of Hawai'i from a nine-week sojourn in 1939 while on commission to produce images for a Hawaiian Pineapple Company promotional campaign. A lush exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory of Hawaiian flora and a stunning display in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library Art Gallery that includes more than 15 of O'Keeffe's Hawai'i paintings—not seen together in New York since their debut in 1940—will spotlight a transformative experience in the legendary artist's life, revealing O'Keeffe's deeply felt impressions and the enduring influence of the Islands' dramatic landscapes and exotic plants.

Great Shipwrecks of New York's 'Great' Lakes and the Hidden Hulks of New York Harbor Exhibits - Hudson River Park's Pier 25 (Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays)
Through October 31, 2018 - Manhattan

New York Sea Grant's Shipwrecks of New York's 'Great' Lakes makes its New York City debut and will remain at Lilac through July 4 before making a return appearance at the New York State Fair. This exhibit celebrates the work of marine archeologists and highlights wrecks in upstate lakes, not only Lakes Erie and Ontario but Lake George, Lake Champlain and others. It will be accompanied at Lilac by The Hidden Hulks of New York Harbor curated by Mary Habstritt with contributions from Norman Brouwer, Joan H. Geismar, Elizabeth Meade, Lynn Rakos, Margaret Stocker, and Gerald Weinstein. This new exhibit looks at how and why local archeologists and historians study the abandoned hulks of the harbor and features some of the well-known ship graveyards and hulls found along our shorelines including those found underground at the World Trade Center site. We'll also be screening the documentary Graves of Arthur Kill in the crew mess. Lilac will be open to view the exhibits and tour the ship from 2:00 to 7:00 Saturdays and Sundays and 4:00 to 7:00 on Thursdays through October. This year, we are celebrating Lilac's 84th birthday.

Carried on Both Sides: Encounter Three - Knockdown Center
Through November 04, 2018 - Maspeth

Knockdown Center is pleased to present Carried on Both Sides: Encounter Three, a collaborative project by artists Caroline Woolard, Helen Lee, and Lika Volkova on view August 30 – November 4, 2018. Founded in research and expressed across media, the exhibition explores the visual, political, and material lineage of the @ symbol to assert that imperial forms long outlive the empire from which they were generated. The project consists of three exhibitions over the course of a year, culminating at Knockdown Center in its final and most comprehensive presentation. For Knockdown Center, the artists incorporate sculpture, installation, fashion, and glass blowing to create new artifacts that reference what the group calls "imperial residues" of ancient Rome that are embedded in the contemporary world. These residues appear in daily life, from architectural columns on buildings and the figure of the bald eagle on the dollar bill, to the ubiquitous @ symbol. The @ symbol derives from a graphic representation of the amphora, a vessel used in ancient Rome to transport goods like olive oil or grains. The project's title references the amphora's original meaning – to "carry on both sides" – ... (read more)
