Artspace opening weds lively art and personal relationships

50 Orange St, New Haven, (203) 772-2709
Apr. 2-June 6, 2009

I stopped by the opening for the new set of shows at Artspace this evening. Or, perhaps it's more accurate to say new show. Guest curator Jessica Buckley enlisted three married couples—artists times two—to not only show the work they create individually but also to produce some collaborative work. Each of the artists is represented with a showing of their personal work, which includes painting (Christopher Mir, Karen Dow, Jesse Lambert, Maggie Michael) and sculpture (Dan Steinhilber and Linda Ganjian). The main gallery showcases the collaborative efforts. It's a lively selection all around, one I hope to return to in more detail in the near future. But for now, a sampling of images from this evening:
