Jeremy J. Starn at Noelke Gallery


Jeremy J. Starn showcases his new series of satellite images, titled “Mirrors In The Sky”, which aims to engage and empower young artists in northwest Connecticut. From oil fields in Saudi Arabia to deforestation in Brazil, his work explores the most visible impacts of globalization and development. Using uniquely crafted satellite images he investigates the marks of human activity on the planet, with a focus on natural resource management, industrial agriculture and climate change.

“Mirrors In The Sky” opening reception is Friday, November 27th 2015, from 5–8pm at the Noelke Gallery in Torrington Connecticut. The show runs until January 21st, 2016.

The painterly, and sometimes abstract, satellite images of human activity are both astonishing and thought-provoking. The artist remarks, “I hope that when people see my work they step back and reflect on the unprecedented global development that humans have achieved.” Through this global perspective, Jeremy J. Starn hopes to bring inspiration and empowerment to the young artist community in northwest Connecticut.

Jeremy J. Starn earned a BFA in Photography from Lesley University College of Art and Design in Cambridge MA in 2014. After graduating he worked for one year in northeast Thailand with a community rights organization. This experience gave him a new outlook on how strong communities can support the health of individuals and their environments. He currently resides in his hometown, Barkhamsted Connecticut.

The Noelke Gallery, located at 15 Water Street in downtown Torrington, is a conceptual art project owned and managed by renowned sculptor and painter John H. Noelke. The Noelke Gallery is an attempt to remove the elitist discernment of contemporary art and hopes to curate an approachable gallery that encourages conversation, sparks imagination, and serves as a haven for anyone interested.

Patricia Rosoff was a member of the Board of Directors of Artists in Real Time, Inc. This award has been created in remembrance of her dedication to this organization and hundreds of local artists. Pat, who we lost on March 25, 2014, was a beloved teacher, art critic, author and artist who described her work as “free-wheeling color abstraction”. She was an important part of Open Studio Hartford for the past 20 years starting back in the 1990s when she boarded the shuttle bus as a most entertaining tour guide. Throughout the years, she was a driving force and brought insight, artistry and credibility to A.R.T. We hope in a small way this keeps her memory alive.

ELIGIBLITY: This competition is open to all abstract visual artists (excluding video) who reside in Connecticut. All pieces of abstract art must be original and personally executed.

PRIZES: First Prize $1,000. Second Prize $500. Each winner will receive $250 in Jerry’s Artarama merchandise and the opportunity to have an exhibit at the Aetna Gallery, at its Hartford headquarters.
