In This House of Sky
A 12-person exhibition
our celestial sphere
May 25 – June 18, 2017
Thursday May 25, from 6PM – 8PM
Wed – Sunday 1PM – 6PM
Westbeth Gallery presents the artwork of 12 contemporary artists with a wide range of media and styles that explore the intangible space/time continuum conjured by the sky.
Yan Cynthia Chen, Susan Spencer Crowe, Reet Das, Karen Fitzgerald, Julie Gross, Ellen Grossman, Susan Knight, Paula Overbay, Jim Pignetti, Florina Sbircea, Mary Vengrofski, and Alice Zinnes.
The work of Ellen Grossman, Paula Overbay, and Karen Fitzgerald suggests gently modulating fabrics of space, each with distinctive energy signatures unspooling across fields.
Susan Knight, Susan Spencer Crowe, Mary Vengrofski and Yan Cynthia Chen work along a 3-d abstract continuum, each using materials in unexpected combinations such as clay with paper, water and string, wax with cardbaord. Their work strikes a balance between the world of dreams and imaginative presence.
Though in singular, distinctive ways, the work of Reet Daas, Julie Gross, Jim Pignetti, Florina Sbircea and Alice Zinnes all use rhythmic color and form to suggest the pushing and pulling present in space and time, and the roiling dance of sky particles.
The exhibition has been curated by Karen Fitzgerald. A curatorial statement is available on request.
The exhibition opens on May 25, and runs through June 18th, 2017. Regular gallery hours are from Wednesday through Sunday, from 1pm – 6pm. The gallery is free and open to the public.
A panel discussion will convene on Saturday, June 3, from 6-8:30pm, exploring the role of imagination in contemporary art.
