By John Rook

CHESHIRE – The fence erected around the former Ball & Socket factory on West Main Street gives the appearance of a building site to most travellers.

Indeed, there is a tremendous amount of work underway at the facility in anticipation of Ball & Socket Arts finally opening its first building to the public in the near future. But for three days last week, other work in progress captured the spotlight.

On May 9, 10 and 11, Wallingford muralist Ryan Christenson, who goes by the name ARCY, painstakingly created a special mural that will take up permanent residence at Ball & Socket Arts. The piece – an 8ft by 12ft mural – captures the history of the area, from canals and trains to modern cyclists using the linear path that passes right by the old factory.

“I’m amazed,” said Ball & Socket Arts President and Co-Founder Ilona Somogyi. ” It’s so beautiful. It really is amazing work.”

Somogyi reached out to Christenson earlier this year about the facility’s “grand opening” this spring. For more than 10 years, Ball & Socket Arts has worked to transform the former factory site on West Main Street into a center for arts and retail.

Last year it was announced that the first building – Building 2 – would open in 2022 and Ball & Socket’s first tenant would be Cheshire’s famous ice cream parlor, Sweet Claude’s Ice Cream, which is currently located on the Highway 10 south. end of town.

“When we realized we’d be able to open this spring…we said, ‘Oh my God, we better start some arts programming here,” Somogyi said with a laugh.

Resident Tom Hearn recommended Somogyi contact Christenson. After looking at his previous work, the group decided to discuss a commissioned piece.

“Our theme for this year is Past/Future, as we are in this moment of transition,” Somogyi said. “I sent (Christenson) some raw footage (of the area’s history) and he sent me back a first draft for my opinion.

“When he sent me back a second draft, I said, ‘that’s nice, let’s do it.’ That was it,” she continued.

The mural appears to move from left to right, with images of the area’s historic canal as well as factory-made knobs leading to more modern depictions of how the area is used. Christenson painted all of the work outdoors, sometimes battling gusts of wind.

Part of the appeal, Somogyi admits, was having Christenson on site working in public view.

“For me, it was a way to demystify things,” she said. “People could see what the actual effort required to create a mural is, what the actual skill level is.”

What impressed Somogyi most were the details of the large-scale work, giving an almost photographic appearance to many elements of the art.

The mural will reside in what is called the Artcade in Building 2 – the expansive entrance that will lead to Sweet Claude’s on the first floor as well as the second floor tenant. Large picture windows will showcase the artwork, with lights that will cut it out at night. The hope is that people will be able to view the mural from the outside.

Somogyi admits there have been “a number of blockages” when it comes to opening Building 2 and the new Sweet Claude facilities. There’s still a chance, she said, that the facility will be ready for visitors by Memorial Day weekend, but that remains very much up in the air.

“I know I’ll be eating ice cream here very soon,” Somogyi said, “but unfortunately I just can’t give you an exact date for when that will be.”

However, Somogyi revealed that Ball & Socket Arts is “very close” to finalizing an agreement with a second tenant for Building 2, which would occupy the structure’s second floor. No indication was given of who that tenant might be or when, but Somogyi said retail interest “is high.”

Second-year fine art students from the University of Derby will showcase their work as part of a new contemporary art exhibition, taking place at Derby Riverlights this week. The exhibition, titled Prelude, will feature art ranging from live performances and sculptures to paintings and projections.

The art, which aims to explore artists’ perceptions and their interactions with the world, will be on display until Saturday, May 21, 2022.

Caroline Locke, Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Art at the University of Derby, said: “By bringing students directly into the city center and exhibiting at Riverlights, we hope to reach a wide audience. This is an experience that students will really enjoy as they learn what it takes to put on a professional show.

“Riverlights is a bright, big, empty space that works extremely well for our students. With an industrial vibe, high ceilings, and exposed walls, it’s an awesome space for an awesome show. It’s the perfect opportunity to to introduce young artists to the processes involved in setting up an ambitious exhibition of their work off-campus.

The Holiday Inn, owner of the exhibition space, also takes full ownership of the project, supporting students and visitors to the show. Carla Cole, Managing Director, said, “We are thrilled to have the Year 2 Art Exhibition returning to Riverlights and look forward to welcoming all students and visitors.

“It’s fantastic to have such a progressive and interesting project on our hotel’s doorstep. The university is an integral part of the wider Derby community and we are always keen for the hotel to encourage and embrace projects like this one and supports young talents as much as possible.

Dates and opening hours of the exhibition:

WATERBURY — The Mattatuck Museum announces three new summer exhibitions. Shipwrecks: Duty of Memory and The Garden, open May 22; Mystery & Benevolence: Masonic and Odd Fellow Folk Art, opens May 29.

These exhibits offer a variety of subjects ranging from photographs of derelict ships around the world, to abstract elements from nature, to historic folk art from two fraternal organizations, according to the museum.

A celebration of the exhibit will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on June 5, with remarks from Mattatuck Museum Director Bob Burns at 1 p.m. Families are invited to participate in exploration activities in the studio.


During the celebration, Public Programs Manager Elise Vanase will be on hand to preview the exciting lineup of summer program offerings. The Art of Yum Café will be open with delicious meals, snacks, coffees and sweets available for purchase. Admission to the Celebration of Summer Exhibits is free for Museum members and children under 5, and $5 for the public. Pre-register at mattmuseum.org/calendar or call 203-753-0381 x130.

The Garden, on view from May 22 to August 31. 28 presents the interdisciplinary works of eight artists. The exhibition addresses the sensory aspects of nature while embodying the emotional journeys of the artists during this eventful decade. Textiles, paintings and ephemera in a variety of materials combine to form an elemental space. The garden, curated by Wylie Contemporary of Mechanicsville, Virginia, seeks to create a refuge through an immersive experience in art, reminding visitors of the beauty of nature and the joy of living outside of the digital sphere, according to the museum. .

Since 1969, photographer Stefano Benazzo has captured images of beached boats and shipwrecks around the world. Benazzo, a retired Italian ambassador and former diplomat at the Italian Embassy in Washington, DC, has taken his photographic project to four continents; his work has taken him to the coasts of Italy, Greece, Portugal, Iceland, Mauritania, Namibia, the Turks and Caicos Islands, South Georgia, Chile and the Falklands/Malvinas. In Shipwrecks: Duty of Memory, on view from May 22 to August 28, 2022, his photographs chronicle the tragic fate of these ships and allude to the stories of the people who sailed them. Through his work, Benazzo aims to preserve the memory of these shipwrecks and their sailors long after the ships themselves have been erased by the action of waves and time. This exhibit features 60 of Benazzo’s haunting photographs, on display for the first time in Connecticut, according to the museum.

Mystery & Benevolence: Masonic and Odd Fellow Folk Art from May 29 to September 4, shines a light on the hidden histories of the Freemasons and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows – two fraternal brotherhoods deeply rooted in American history. The objects presented in this exhibit convey the secret practices of fraternal organizations through their rich symbolism and unusual imagery. For members, this iconography emphasizes the core values ​​of brotherhood, work, charity, passage, and wisdom, but the images seem confusing to the uninitiated. Mystery & Benevolence was organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York, NY from the Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection and is presented by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.

The Mattatuck Museum has developed a host of programs inspired by this exhibit for students, families, and adults interested in a variety of subjects, including art, history, literature, and music.

“Infinite” by Kang Yi-yun (Courtesy of the artist)

Art Busan, one of South Korea’s leading art fairs, kicks off Thursday with its VVIP opening featuring conversations with leading art professionals and exhibitions of works by world-renowned artists.

The art fair will run until Sunday at the Bexco Exhibition Center in Busan. The four-day event will feature works from 133 galleries in 21 countries, including Gray – a Chicago and New York-based gallery that represents David Hockney, Alex Katz and Jaume Plensa – and is among the first participants in this major event.

The four-day affair will host conferences of professionals and artists called “Conversations”, offering attendees a chance to keep abreast of trends in the global art market. The program consists of two sessions, “Reframing the Boundaries: NFT Art” and “Meet The Artists”, each offering six talks that take place at the venue or online.

British sculptor Antony Gormley will meet the public online during a presentation titled “Towards a Sustainable Future for the Arts: Carbon Footprint” at 5 p.m. Saturday. Emerging artists Zhao Zhao and Etsu Egami will hold a conference titled “Focus in Asia” at 3 p.m. Saturday. While Egami will be at the fair in person, Zhao Zhao will join the discussion virtually.

Anthony Gormley (Art Busan)

The “Reframing the Boundaries: NFT Art” session will include a talk titled “The Advent of NFT Art and Related Issues,” by Hongik University Professor Joo Henna, and several other online talks, including “Belvedere Museum and NFT: Gustav Klimt” by Wolfgang Bergmann, CFO of the Belvedere Museum, and “Gallery and NFT: The Case of Koenig Gallery” by Johann Koenig, the gallery owner.

Online booking for lectures is required through Art Busan’s official website and is limited to 40 people.

A special program of Art Busan, “Experiment”, is made up of 14 exhibitions by artists, including New York artist Austin Lee, who combines airbrush paintings and digital technologies, media artist Kang Yi-yun , which featured the artwork “Beyond the Scene” at BTS’ global public art project “CONNECT BTS” and David Hockney’s 8.7-meter-long photographic drawing at Gray’s booth.

American pop artist Roy Lichtenstein’s painting “Purple Rain” will be the most expensive artwork at the fair, with a price tag of $5.7 million, according to Art Busan.

Last year, the fair welcomed some 800,000 visitors – including 15,000 at a preview for art collectors – and its sales hit a record 35 billion won ($27.5 million ). At least 15 galleries were known to have each made more than 1 billion won in sales, according to the organizer.

Meanwhile, the organizing committee announced on Saturday that it had terminated its contract with Byun Won-kyung, who had led the art fair since 2020 as CEO of Art Busan.

He did not provide any details other than that “the organizing committee has come to the conclusion that Art Busan cannot maintain the relationship with Byun,” he said in a statement.
