Hobbit House
Feb 1 – Mar 30 all-day

Glass Display Case – Main Level
Design Explorations for a Modern Modular “Hobbit House” Or Bag End 2.0  -=-  Presented by Fred Bartels

“Books sometimes plant seeds that may lie dormant for years, waiting for the right opportunity to sprout and flourish. As a boy I read J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and it placed an image in my mind of a warm, cozy home with a curved turf-covered roof.

That seed of an image remained ungerminated for many years, until a wonderful (and free) Computer Aided Design program called SketchUp made 3D design easily accessible to design amateurs like myself.

Over many years, as I played with and developed some mastery of SketchUp, the Hobbit House concept grew and began throwing off many branches. I first worked on overall house design concepts, without worrying much about how the designs might be built. More recently I’ve been exploring various techniques and approaches that might be used to bring these designs to life.

In this display are images and models of some of the approaches I’ve found interesting. I’ve also built some larger prototypes that are too big to be displayed here. Most of the SketchUp design files I’ve used in this work are available on the SketchUp 3D Warehouse at this URL: https://goo.gl/HnxNwK

I may never build a modern modular Hobbit House using these ideas but I have had great fun exploring them, and they’ve helped keep me connected to Tolkien’s delightful world, and the youth who discovered and wandered enchanted in that realm so many years ago.” – Fred Bartels

Kathleen Reckling: 5 Women Artists You Should Know — Who Aren’t Frida Kahlo
Feb 25 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Conversations with Artists and Performers

Do we still need to talk about women artists?

Only 27 women (out of 318 artists) are represented in the 9th edition of H.W. Janson’s survey, History of Art — up from zero in the 1980s.  Women earn half of the MFAs granted in the United States, yet only account for 30% of artists represented by commercial galleries.

We need to talk about women artists

Kathleen Reckling has managed over 40 curatorial and public art projects at ArtsWestchester’s gallery and other spaces. She was curator of the NEA-grant funded exhibitions Crossing Borders (2015) and SHE (2016), as well as the NYSCA-grant funded exhibition Give Us the Vote (2017). In 2015 she was named one of Westchester’s most influential business leaders under the age of 30 in 914 INC’s Wunderkinds edition.
