Summer School: Jack Shainman’s Kinderhook Gallery Opens New Exhibit

Amy Krzanik reports from Kinderhook. The School | Jack Shainman Gallery opened its 2017 summer exhibit, The Coffins of Paa Joe and the Pursuit of Happiness, on Saturday, June 24 with a celebration that has, in 4 short years, come to be one of the most eagerly awaited events of the season. Local artists and visitors from the city (where Shainman’s Chelsea gallery has opened a related show) got to know each other over signature cocktails, food from Simons Catering and desserts by Eat.Sip.Smile. A special performance of PATIENT(CE) by Company SBB and jazz ensemble Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber took place under shade trees while viewers enjoyed the sunshine. A third exhibit, If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day: Collections of Claude Simard, up now at the Tang Museum at Skidmore College, focuses on pieces from the collection of the Shainman Gallery’s late co-founder. All three are diverse, crossing time periods, cultures and countries, and encompassing sculpture, murals, photography, 3D work and more.

Artist and sheep farmer Dan Devine with Ruth Adams, director of Art Omi in Ghent; Aiko Tanaka, Priscilla Torres and Jasmin Hernandez.

Ian Berry, director of the Tang Museum at Skidmore, with Jack Shainman gallery director Joeonna Bellorado-Samuels, Jack Shainman, and choreographer Stephen Petronio.

Warren Suss, Nat Chase and Tamsen Greene, senior director at the gallery; Laura Loving and Stella with Elena Filimonova and Sasha.

You’ll know you’ve arrived at The School when you see the large red sculpture on the front lawn.

Molly Gottschalk with Olivia Smith of Magenta Plains Gallery; Lars, a filmmaker, and producer Irene Francis with Ronald Shaw.
