Mooney Center Gallery Presents Spiral Bound/New York


New Rochelle, NY, October 24, 2013 – The College of New Rochelle’s (CNR) Mooney Center Gallery presents Spiral Bound/New York.  The exhibit features a variety of notebooks that offer insights into the many different ways artists work and the different ways distinct communities of artists think about art making in their regions and cities. 

Organized by the artist collective Romanov Grave, Spiral Bound/New York displays the free play of invention unfettered by practical constraints. The collection draws from artists working in New York, and includes ‘notebooks’ that employ video as a notational device, yellow legal pads, leather bound journals, and sheets of loose leaves aspiring to be a modern codex.

Featured artists include: Judith Bernstein, Matt Blackwell, Nancy Bowen, Tom Burckhardt, Mary Carlson, Yi Chen, Dawn Clements, Susan Fang, Matt Freedman, Susanna Heller, Craig Kane, Eve Laramee, Yasue Maetake, Scott Malbaurn, Howard McCalebb, Joe McKay, John Monti, John O’Conner, Halsey Rodman, Anne Thulin, Victoria Ufondu, Daniel Wiener, Allan Wexler, and Letha Wilson.

Romanov Grave is a group of artists who write reviews and curate exhibitions. Some of its members prefer to remain anonymous. For more information about the group see
