* concept: …\”Think back to when you were a kid. What toys and candy did you adore? Could you pass up drawing on a frosty window? Do you remember the bubbles escaping from your nose as you jumped into a swimming pool? This is the essence of the new works by Mixed Media Artist Carla Goldberg opening at bau gallery on April 12th at 161 Main Street in Beacon, NY. The exhibits goes beyond Goldberg\’s own childhood as she collaborates online with Russian artist Igor Vaganov in the back room gallery at bau, an installation about their combined experiences as children growing up, in the United States for Goldberg and the former Soviet Union for Vaganov. Goldberg continues the theme of childhood in creating other installations based on the childhood toys and candy from the 1950\’s and 60\’s in Germany with artist friend Heinz \”HEGO\” Goevert and from the 1970\’s and 80\’s in Hungary with krisztina Asztalos. It\’s a unique look at the commonalities of childhood joy, the different candies and toys of childhood separated by decades, culture and place, but holding similar positions of reverence in the pantheons of our memory\”.
