Opening Reception: Saturday, January 14, 2023, 6-8 PM
ATHICA’s early Winter 2023 exhibition TRIO features the work of Lauren Bradshaw, Daniel Brickman, and Jeanne Ciravolo. The exhibition is the latest installment of the Solo Duo Trio series, which provides opportunities for individual artists to exhibit their work at ATHICA and its satellite location, ATHICA@Ciné. Selected by the ATHICA Exhibitions Committee with additional curation by Exhibition Committee Chair and ATHICA Board President Jon Vogt, the work in this exhibition is united by its visceral and unusual use of fiber and other materials, referencing the body, the tactile, and the experiential.
According to exhibition curator Jon Vogt, “These artists come from the American North, South, and West, each bringing a unique but complementary sensibility to their work, inhabiting the gallery like creatures we know but haven’t met before. These beautiful, sculptural, and painterly works have fiber as one common thread (pun intended), uniting in their mutual exploration of found materials and biomorphic imagery.”
