- When There Were Birds (part i) Opens 30 March. 11 Jane St: Installation Art and Performance Space. Saugerties, NY. Co-curated by Jen Dragon, Cross Contemporary Art
- When There Were Birds (part i) by Millicent Young is the inaugural solo sculpture exhibition for the new 11 Jane St Installation Art and Performance Space. Utilizing her materials of horsehair and wood to capture the vicissitudes of light and shadow, Millicent Young's artwork alternates between a keen conscious awareness and shifting dream-like forms. In the front gallery, four sculptures consider more cultural aspects of the Anthropocene while the ten hybrid avian/figurative forms of the ceiling hung installation in the performance space consider the more natural and spiritual perspectives. Young's work fills the 2000 square foot first floor of this elegantly restored performance space with a sensitive meditation on space and being. The installation at 11 Jane Street Art allows the viewer to fully participate in the experience of Millicent Young's work as they move through the gallery experiencing the unique light of this restored 125 year old warehouse now transformed into an art and performance space. When There Were Birds (part i) is sponsored by 11 Jane Street and Cross Contemporary Art. Opens Saturday, March 30 and runs through Sunday April 28th, 2019. Gallery hours: Sat and Sun, 12-5pm or by appointment: 845-399-9751
- When There Were Birds (part ii) will open in November 2019 in the performance space of 11 Jane St.
