    Picturing the Water: The Photography of Alice Austen

    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: July 19, 2024 - 11:59 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

    Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 19, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

    Arc of Twenty Years

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 19, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.

    Shitzprobe

    Starts: 8:00 pm
    Ends: July 19, 2024 - 11:00 pm
    Location: Asylum NYC @ 123 E 24th st, New York, NY, 10010, India


    Description:

    A Broadway Star Improvises A Musical For The Very First Time
    Welcome to the opening (and sadly the closing) night of a brand new musical! What’s it called? You get to choose!

    Shitzprobe is a fully improvised musical with a cast that features a Broadway guest star throwing away the script and improvising for the first time. Every song, lyric, line of dialogue and dance move is totally improvised, accompanied by a live band who are also making up everything as they go. Each performance of Shitzprobe is the premiere of a never-before-seen musical, and YOU help create it - each show is based on an audience member’s suggestion of a title of a musical that doesn’t yet exist. Past audiences have helped to create shows like “Millennials and Margaritas”, “Can She Even Walk in Heels?”, and “Moby and the Incredible Dick”.

    Past guests include Jackie Hoffman (Feud, Hairspray), Isabelle McCalla (The Prom, Shucked), Barrett Wilbert Weed (Heathers, Mean Girls), and Broadway stars from Into The Woods, Wicked, Come From Away, Waitress, Company, and more. The rest of the cast features the best musical improvisers in New York City, who have been seen on Comedy Central, Adult Swim, at the world-renowned Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and in shows such as Wicked, The Prom, Groundhog Day, Freestyle Love Supreme, and Hair.

    Picturing the Water: The Photography of Alice Austen

    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: July 20, 2024 - 11:59 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

    Barbara is an award-winning artist, with her work held in private and corporate collections and appearing in several publications. She is a member of Pine Shores Art Association, The New Jersey Watercolor Society, The Brevard Watercolor Society, and The Florida Watercolor Society, but she is not limited to watercolor.

    In addition to creating her own artwork, she teaches art in New Jersey and Florida, and in Spring 2024, she was asked to demonstrate painting techniques at Brevard County Florida’s major annual SPLASH Watercolor Art Show. She makes time to also continue her own art studies under the direction of renowned painters. Her work is regularly seen in coastal exhibitions, and she is an exhibiting member of Eau Gallery in Melbourne, Florida.
    Barbara holds a BA in Mass Communications and Public Relations, and during a 40-year career working in advertising for major New York agencies, she wrote and designed corporate publications. She also served as creative project manager for interior design and renovation projects, including a historic mansion in Hopewell, NJ.

    Suzi is a professional artist working primarily in watercolor/mixed media and acrylics. Her artwork is in corporate and private collections across the nation and regularly seen in coastal art shows. In 2023, she was accepted into the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Annual show and invited to be part of the Heart of South Jersey Arts & Cultural Connections exhibit. In 2021, she was awarded 2nd place in the LBI Foundation’s “Plein Air Plus” national juried competition. She is past president of the Paducah Art Guild and Gallery in Kentucky, and she has been on the board of directors of Pine Shores Art Association in New Jersey for several years, currently serving as Director of their two galleries.

    Majoring in art at Endicott College in New England, she continued art studies at the Corcoran Gallery of Art School in Washington, DC and Paducah School for Art and Design in Kentucky.
    As a free-lance writer and graphic artist, her client list included theatres, performing arts centers, charitable organizations, advertising agencies, and major newspapers. Before opening her studio, she was marketing manager at Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park in Washington, DC.

    Join us for curated artistic workshops designed to spark the creative process. Teaching Artists, Carrie Ellman Larsen and Nick Simone will guide participants to create their own piece of original theatre by telling stories and sharing memories with words, movements, and soundscapes. Through the exploration of theatre games and improvisation techniques along with sound, set, and costume design, participants will dive into playwriting and ensemble building to begin to create their own original piece of theatre.

    We will be kicking off this exciting program with theatre games centered around Roundabout's production of Home, where participants will recreate scenes from this Tony Award®-nominated play The New York Times calls “an uplifting folk ballad about the pure in heart”. Samm-Art Williams’ Home is a muscular and melodic comingof-age story, where participants will recreate scenes from this moving coming-of-age story reflecting on identity, belonging, and the exploration of self. Kenny Leon (A Soldier’s Play) directs. In the following inter-generational workshops (all ages welcome), participants will collaborate to create their own plays, designs, and songs exploring various playwriting techniques which will culminate in an original theatrical production.

    Free tickets to see Roundabout shows will be available, please see Library staff for more information. Supplies are limited.

    Taking Care
    The Black Angels of Sea View Hospital
    On view from January 26, 2024

    History was made on Staten Island in 1951 when a breakthrough treatment for tuberculosis was developed at Sea View Hospital. Taking Care highlights the groundbreaking work, lives, and legacy of the “The Black Angels,” nurses who broke racial barriers and risked their lives to care for patients and administer the clinical trials that forever changed the trajectory of this horrific disease.

    Alongside historic objects and archival images, this exhibition presents Back and Song, an immersive film and art installation by Elissa Blount Moorhead and Bradford Young that connects this significant history to the contributions of Black healthcare workers, healers, and caregivers throughout time.

    The Five Movements for Balancing the Five Elements.

    Starts: 11:00 am
    Ends: July 20, 2024 - 1:00 pm
    Location: Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art


    Description:

Don't miss this opportunity to embark on a journey of self-discovery and transformation.
    These five movements are ancient Tibetan yogas to release tensions and blockages in our gross body and subtle energy channels. They simply energize and balance the five elements: earth, water, fire, wind, and space elements. They specifically open the two most important chakras in our body: heart and naval chakras.

    Benefits

    We can feel the benefit right away! These five movements are ancient Tibetan yogas to release tensions and blockages in our gross body and subtle energy channels. They simply energize and balance the five elements: earth, water, fire, wind, and space elements. They specifically open the two most important chakras in our body: heart and naval chakras.

    Duration

    Our city life is too hectic. So many of us do not know how to spend our time wisely for our own physical and mental health.

    These five movements will take only 11 minutes of your daily life.

    You will joyfully spare 11 minutes every day after knowing the benefits yourself!

    Names of five movements and the five elements

    2. Wild Yak Rubbing Its Shoulder for earth element
    4. Falcon Holding the Wind for wind element
    4. Falcon Holding the Wind for fire element

    What Buddhist Science Say or For Deeper Understanding
    According to Buddhist science, physical movement, breath, and awareness should be coordinated to harmonize our body, energy, and mind.
    Our human body is sacred as it is a vehicle for transformation. This precious body is inside-out channels, where subtle energy flows and energy is the vehicle of our mind. Energy is the only bridge between our body and mind. Hence, the nexus working of our body, energy, and mind are interdependent. Energy and mind are not tangible. However, if we work on our tangible or physical body, we can easily connect with our energy and mind.
    These five simple yoga movements can help us to coordinate and harmonize our physical, emotional, and mental well-being and can further develop our spiritual path in the future.

    The workshop covers the following topics:
    1. Ninefold breathings for purification of stale energy as a preliminary practice
    2. Five Movements and their individual benefits
    3. Exhalation of dead or stale energy between the movements
    Dr. Chok will also share 3 special Tibetan yogas for detoxification and good sleep as gifts!

    About Dr. Chok

    Chok Tenzin Monlam is an accomplished teacher who has dedicated his career to preserving Tibetan Buddhist culture and language in modern society. A practicing academic, teacher, and healer, he teaches many modalities, from Tibetan language to Tibetan yoga, meditation, and Buddhist science and philosophy.
    Ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, he studied and practiced as a Tibetan monk for ten years. Having advanced his studies through institutions for two decades, Dr. Chok has obtained multiple Buddhist and Tibetan studies degrees, including his Ph.D. from the University of Delhi. He has studied and trained for decades in Buddhist studies, Tibetan yoga, healing, and meditation under the direction of many major and minor Tibetan Buddhist traditions teachers. He served as the Research and Translation Department Head at the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives in Dharamshala for 13 years until he relocated to the United States in 2019.
    An author, translator, and certified language instructor, Dr. Chok has written two books on the Tibetan language, translated over 35 books and many articles, and taught both Tibetan and English language courses affiliated with multiple learning institutions. His passion, however, lies in Tibetan yoga and meditation. The Tibetan style of yogic practice is exceedingly rare, and few people are qualified to teach it today.

    Dr Chok learned Chöd practice in a three-month Chöd retreat in Sankhu, Nepal, in 2017. He received the Chöd empowerment and oral transmissions from Lama Chödrak (Forest Lama) in Nepal and from Lama Wangdue (Nepal, Portland) and Lama Jigme (Tso Pema, India). He also learned how to perform the Chöd ritual from Chödpa Kunsang Dorjee (Khandro Labdon Shije Chod Institute, Nepal).

    Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 20, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

    Arc of Twenty Years

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 20, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.

    Picturing the Water: The Photography of Alice Austen

    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: July 21, 2024 - 11:59 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

    Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 21, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

    Arc of Twenty Years

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 21, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.

    For more information about the museum, call (718) 447-6490 or visit noblemaritime.org.

    What is your “20/20” vision? The past year limited our access to the world and posed unprecedented challenges. It also sparked our creativity. We photographed indoors; or, mask in place, we ventured out to capture new images. Perhaps past work came to mind and we used this time to review or revise it. Show us art that shines through a difficult time.  Your work will be exhibited in an online gallery.

    CRITERIA  All photographic genres are welcome: portraits, landscapes, photojournalism, macro photography and composites. All work must be original. Submitted work must be the artist’s own. Works previously exhibited at The Art Guild Gallery will not be considered.

    JUROR OF AWARDS Award-winning photographers Bill and Gen Rudock will serve as Jurors of Awards. With over 60 years of combined photographic experience, they share a love and passion for photography, traveling, nature, and wildlife. Their knowledge and their reputations have made them sought after speakers, lecturers, and workshop instructors.

    ENTRY FEE(S) Entry fees are payable online when you upload or by mailing a check or using Paypal as detailed below. Registration is required and fees are non-refundable.

    Members: $25 (1-2 pieces)
    Non-members: $35 (1-2 pieces)
    High School Student members: $15 (1-2 pieces)
    One additional entry: $10 (per person)

    No more than 3 works per artist.  Entry fees are non-refundable.

    AWARDS 1st Place $300 • 2nd Place $200 • 3rd Place $100 • Honorable Mentions • Student awards will also be given, if appropriate.

    Picturing the Water: The Photography of Alice Austen

    Starts: 12:00 am
    Ends: July 25, 2024 - 11:59 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Alice Austen House and the Noble Maritime Collection present a collection of never-before-seen nautical photographs of one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Living and working on Staten Island during the Gilded Age, Alice Austen (1866–1952) was one of the first women photographers to work outside the confines of a studio, employing a visionary documentary style that was ahead of its time. Picturing the Water explores Austen’s deep connection to both local and international waterways and the vessels that traverse them. The newly printed photographs, reproduced from Austen’s glass plate and film negatives, will be framed in John Noble’s signature handmade frames, reflecting on parallels between the artists’ visions.

    This exhibition was guest-curated by Alice Austen House Executive Director Victoria Munro with collections assistance by Kristine Allegretti.

    Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 25, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Andrea Doria: Rescue at Sea, an exhibition about the 1956 sinking of the SS Andrea Doria and the rescue of her passengers.

     

    The exhibition will be on view from June 16, 2022 through June 2023.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, June 16 from 6 to 8 PM.

     

    The SS Andrea Doria was the pride of postwar Italy.  A glamorous transatlantic ocean liner, she was a “floating art gallery” and a marvel of midcentury modern design.  She carried celebrities as well as Italian immigrants to new opportunities in America.

     

    On July 25, 1956, the Swedish liner MS Stockholm collided with the Andrea Doria, which was en route to New York.  The subsequent rescue was one of the most dramatic and well-documented in sea history.

     

    The Andrea Doria foundered 11 hours after the collision, and now lays on her starboard side 250 feet below the surface, about 50 miles from Nantucket.

     

    The exhibition will feature objects and artifacts from the extensive collection of diver and researcher John Moyer, Salvor in Possession of the Andrea Doria.

     

    In addition to numerous rare photographs and artwork, on display will be a lifering from the Andrea Doria, as well as china from all passenger classes, pottery, glassware, silverware, and the ship’s brass bell, recovered by Moyer and a team of divers.

     

    The exhibition was developed with the guidance of survivor, educator, author, and filmmaker Pierette Domenica Simpson, who is the gatekeeper of Andrea Doria survivor stories.  She is the author of the books Alive on the Andrea Doria!: The Greatest Sea Rescue in History and I Was Shipwrecked on the Andrea Doria! The Titanic of the 1950s

     

    Archival newsreel footage of the Andrea Doria’s maiden voyage, the collision, and the rescue of her passengers—all provided by the Sherman Grinberg Library—will be shown in the exhibition on a converted Firestone television from 1956, the year of the sinking.

     

    The exhibition also includes underwater footage shot by Bill Campbell and Billy Deans of John Moyer and a team diving to the wreck and recovering two 1,000-pound ceramic mural panels by Italian artist Guido Gambone (1909-1969).

     

    In 1993, Moyer was awarded an Admiralty Arrest in US Federal Court and named Salvor in Possession of the wreck.  In the ruling, US District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez stated Moyer’s “research and archeological documentation of his effort indicate a respect for the Andrea Doria as something more than just a commercial salvage project.”

     

    Photographs of some of the Andrea Doria survivors are featured in the exhibition, including Simpson, who, at nine years old, was immigrating to the United States with her grandparents, Pietro and Domenica Burzio, to start a new life with her mother Vivian, who had moved to Detroit eight years earlier to pursue the American Dream.

     

    Simpson wrote and produced the 2016 documentary Andrea Doria: Are the Passengers Saved?, directed by Luca Guardabascio of Rome.  To mark the 66th

    Arc of Twenty Years

    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: July 25, 2024 - 5:00 pm
    Location: Noble Maritime Collection @ 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, NY, 10301


    Description:

    The Noble Maritime Collection presents Arc of Twenty Years, an exhibition independently curated by photographer Michael McWeeney and painter Sarah Yuster featuring art created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks.

    The exhibition will be on view from August 12 to October 3, 2021 in the museum’s library.  There will be an opening reception on Wednesday, August 11 from 6 to 8 PM.

    Arc of Twenty Years will feature the work of Ghanim Khalil, Scott LoBaido, Diane Matyas, Ann Marie McDonnell, Michael McWeeney, Kristi Pfister, Marguerite Maria Rivas, and Sarah Yuster, all Staten Island artists.  It is a multimedia exhibition about the emotional impact and socio-political changes on Staten Island after the attacks.

    A lithograph featuring the World Trade Center by John A. Noble (1913-1983), the museum’s namesake, will also be included in the exhibition. 

    Curator Sarah Yuster states, “In the twenty years since 9/11, much of our populace has notably changed.  The way we see ourselves and each other as individuals, as Americans, took a marked trajectory spurred by one event.  The exhibition catalogues and explores major aspects of these permutations through art, photography, written word and short films.”

    Ms. Yuster continues, “Staten Island is, in many ways, a microcosm of the United States in terms of ethnicities, economics, and ideologies.  An immediate and long-term aftermath of that day rippled through the nation.  The initial agony of three thousand innocent lives lost at once, the ensuing spasms of fury and fear were felt most intensely here.  Empathy, camaraderie, selflessness and unity soared for weeks, galvanizing New Yorkers, but quickly dissipated into dissenting factions.  The art and response from all factions will be displayed.”

    Curator Michael McWeeney added, “This is not just a memorial; it’s a look at how we as a society have grown over the past 20 years.  The artists take you through their personal stories and contemplate how all of our lives have been altered by the 9/11 attacks.”

    Sarah Yuster’s painting The Firefighter, on loan from the Staten Island Children’s Museum, as well as three paintings depicting the changing skyline in Lower Manhattan from 1985 to 2014, will be on display.

    “Witness,” a poem by Staten Island’s first Poet Laureate Marguerite Maria Rivas, will be featured in the exhibition.  Rivas first wrote the poem as an email to a friend in Colorado immediately after the attacks, and it is now part of the National September 11th Museum’s online collection.

    Ann Marie McDonnell contributed two bronze sculptures, The Missing and The Faithful, which honor the lives of those lost and the loved ones who mourn them. 

    Diane Matyas contributed a multimedia work incorporating a painting with an apron and napkin, which she made to honor the lives of the Windows on the World restaurant employees.

    Scott LoBaido will exhibit a reproduction of an oil painting that he completed in the immediate aftermath of the attacks; it originally hung in Cargo Cafe in St. George, a local gathering place for the community at that time.

    Kristi Pfister will display six paintings, five of which are on ceramic tiles, and one drawing completed in the aftermath of 9/11 depicting people in various states of digging and waiting, searching for answers.

    Michael McWeeney will display a photograph of the Tribute in Light taken in March 2002, the first time those lights were lit, as well as a series of portraits with accompanying audio in the subjects’ own words about the Muslim experience after 9/11, as conceived by scholar Ghanim Khalil.

    The John A. Noble lithograph Ghost of a Bygone Ferry will be on display from the museum’s collection.  This print is his reaction to the passage of time and the decline of numerous ferry routes in New York Harbor by the 1970s; the Twin Towers, under construction, figure prominently in the background of the composition.

    For more information about the exhibition, visit noblemaritime.org/arc-of-twenty-years.

    This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and by a grant from the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

    The Noble Maritime Collection, located in a former mariners’ dormitory at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden, 1000 Richmond Terrace, Building D, Staten Island, New York, is open from 12 until 5 PM, Thursdays through Sundays.  Admission is by donation.
