My next exhibition, INCREMENT opens on Friday, 11/30 at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art.
The opening reception is from 6-9pm.
***Featuring Barbara Cooper, Shona Macdonald, Yoonshin Park
Curated by Adrienne Kochman
Increment, at its simplest level, suggests moving forward in small, compartmentalized steps. Progress may appear slow, deliberate, conscientious, or gradual, but at its foundation lays the notion of measured change. This exhibit focuses on the work of three artists intent on drawing our attention to areas often overlooked or minimized in a world where reaching the end product directly prevails. Cooper explores the tension between nature and industry as a site of reconciliation; Macdonald ponders dislocation and "our transient and fragile hold on earth" through landscapes; and Park embraces the condition of not belonging as an opportunity for growth. All share an interest in the ensuing transformation.
The Mary-Frances and Bill Veeck Gallery at the Catholic Theological Union is hosting "Material Matters". This show will feature works by Donna Hapac, Yoonshin Park, and Richard Shipps.
The show will be open from June 1st up to August 31st. There will be an Opening Reception on Saturday, June 9th from 5-7pm and complimentary parking will be available.
Words from the curator, Alexia Tryzna:
"Following the materials and responding to possibilities as they arise, Donna Hapac, Yoonshin Park, and Richard Shipps use paper, reeds, and linen to create evocative works of art. Manipulating traditional materials and age old practices, each artist brings their exquisite artistry and vision alive."
