Chris Victor Discusses “Hammer Dance” Exhibit and Previous Works at SUNY Ulster March 2


               February 20, 2019– Stone Ridge, NY – SUNY Ulster will host a gallery talk and slide presentation by Chris Victor on his newest gallery exhibit, “Hammer Dance,” on Saturday, March 2, at 1:00 p.m. in Vanderlyn Hall Room 266. In addition to discussing the works in “Hammer Dance,” Victor will review the history of his work and its connection to music, nature, material, and intuition. The slide presentation will be followed by a Q & A in the gallery. “Hammer Dance” is on display at SUNY Ulster through Friday, March 29.

Chris Victor is a visual artist working primarily in repurposed and commonly available materials. “Hammer Dance” consists of a body of abstract, wall-based works inspired by his desire to return to painting. As the artist puts it, his aim is “to create works which are completely open about their own process of becoming.” Chris’ work has been in numerous shows and galleries, including The Grand Rapids Public Museum, the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie, and The Samuel Dorsky Museum. Chris has been a resident at the Wassaic Project artist residency and was awarded a NYFA Fellowship in Sculpture in 2014.  

"...Chris Victor’s works feel fresh, spontaneous, and alive. They transcend issues of style and instead point to a new kind of making,” says Lynn Woods of Almanac Weekly.

The Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery at SUNY Ulster serves as a center for creative activity at the College and within the community. It also functions as an environment for teaching, performing, and exhibiting. The Muroff-Kotler Visual Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and is closed on college holidays.
