Most of the dioramas have come in (a few still on their way) and they are just as dark and light and beautiful as we hoped. We cannot wait to show them to you. This post is to announce the opening night party will be Saturday, December 14th from 6-8pm. Invitation to follow, soon. In the meantime, we’re extending our currency show into that first week in December, so come on down to see it while it’s up, through the 8th of December, and get in on Todd Martin’s exchange project, free participation to all.
If you are reading this and missed the deadline but would like to participate in our diorama show, please contact us, we realize this is a busy time of year, and may be able to make arrangements…
It’s a beautiful day in in NP. Colorful, dry leaves are actually blowing in our front door, rattling across the floor. So, yes our door is open, come on down and see Pete Fowler’s incredible Just Tweaking while you still have the chance. Officially open today through the 27th October, and by appointment all week.
Diorama makers: Pretty much anything by Gregory Euclide should get you going. Look at these images from his 2011 “otherworldly: optical delusions and small realities” show at the Museum of Arts and Design in NY.
and as a reminder, today is a tiny bit less than one month until our November 15th submission deadline. those who submit early have a better chance of getting into our publicity materials!
TLRH would like to announce our next show, Currency: An Exchange, guest curated by Dylan McManus. The show will be up November 2nd – December 1, with an opening reception at the gallery Saturday November 2nd from 6-8pm. The show, featuring work from Curtis Readel, Todd Martin, Molly Rausch and Dylan McManus, takes an intimate look at society’s relationship with currency and the varying degrees of symbolic and literal power currency wields. We will feature a weekly performance piece by Todd Martin, in which he invites all members of the community to bring legal tender to his artist’s bank, where we will manipulate it on the spot to be reintroduced into the local community.

We will be open by appointment only this morning and later this afternoon, in support of visiting the O Positive Festival in neighboring Kingston, NY. For those who don’t know, O Positive is in the third year of a pretty amazing endeavor, ”a grassroots, band-aid solution to inaccessible healthcare for the creative community” – check it out here. We are particularly excited about seeing Kris Perry‘s machine in action at 1pm in the secret huge old theater behind BSP Lounge in uptown Kingston.
As promised, we will post a series of encouragements leading up to our diorama submission deadline (November 15th, 2013). Here we go with number one:
Think outside the box.

TLRH is very pleased to announce the third annual Diorama show, this year with the theme of Darkness and Light. All dioramas must be meditations on said theme. As always, our theme may be applied literally, figuratively or both.
We welcome submissions for all artists, schooled/unschooled, from local and afar.
The dioramas may be made from anything, including paper, wood, and mixed-media, and may range in scale from the tiniest-possible, to 2′x2′x2′. No limit of entries per person. Selections will be juried by the TLRH staff. We’ll display the selected dioramas in our gallery in New Paltz, and photos of the selections will appear online at our website.
We’ll post inspirational images to encourage you along the way. The above photo, for example, is from one of our favorite diorama sites, small realities - dive in!
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Please email a photo of your piece to email@example.com on or before Friday November 15th, 2013. For those of you who aren’t into e-mailing photos, swing on by the gallery. We’ll notify selected artists by November 18th. We strongly encourage early submissions, they have a far greater chance of getting into our press materials for the show.
OPENING PARTY: We will host an opening party in early December, date TBA.
