sTo Len: To Dissolve into the Hydrocommons, One Drop at a Time

October 17 – December 9, 2022

Reception: Wednesday, October 26, 2 - 4 p.m.

Community Clean-Up Event: October 1

To Dissolve into the Hydrocommons, One Drop at a Time is a solo exhibition by the artist sTo Len. The show examines the themes of environmental decay and the interconnectedness of global ecosystems by siting the waterways around the New 51 area as places of artistic exploration. Len’s interdisciplinary practice engages viewers to investigate their impact on the environment.

Community Clean-Up Event

In conjunction with the Citizen Opportunities for Accessing Science Training on the Sound (COASTS), Len’s exhibition will include a public talk and a community clean-up event at Long Wharf on Saturday, October 1.

Len's exhibition is funded by grants from the International Association of New 51 and the Connecticut Sea Grant Arts Award Support Program.

 About the Artist

sTo Len is a printmaker, installation, sound, and performance artist interested in improvisation and experimentation within various media. His printmaking work updates traditional techniques such as Suminagashi (floating ink) and Gyotaku (fish impression) into an experimental collaboration with nature and a site of discourse on environmentalism and art activism.

The cross-disciplinary nature of Len’s work includes transforming public spaces such as a river into an art studio, recycling waste into art materials, creating a community pirate radio station, and hosting water ritual performances at Superfund sites.

sTo Len is currently based in Queens, NY. Len has familial roots in Vietnam and Virginia, and his work incorporates these bonds by connecting issues of their history, environment, traditions, and politics.

Cheryl Gross: Commit to Memory: The Precipice of Extinction

August 30 - October 5, 2022

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15, 4 - 7 p.m.

Cheryl Gross’s solo exhibition Commit to Memory: The Precipice of Extinction is a multi-platform, social commentary that addresses the shifting and eventual disappearance of our culture using animals as metaphors. Gross selects animals from the endangered species list to create a multi-media, graphic audiovisual representation of a society teetering on the verge of collapse. Artistic depictions of animal species as victims illustrate the decline of the American democratic system. Gross uses the word "extinction" throughout the narrative as the blueprint of this project.
