Group show opens Saturday at Institute Library in New Haven
The Institute Library
847 Chapel St., New Haven, (203) 562-5045
May 19—June 16, 2012.
Opening Reception: Sat., May 19, Noon—2 p.m.
Curated by Joy Pepe, Family Haunts considers the beckoning of ancestry and perceptions of present day relations through the paintings, prints, photographs, drawings and assemblages of artists. The veils of memory, the desire to commemorate, and the need for identity compel these works of art into being. These nine artists siphon the particulars of familial connection into a visual scrapbook of our collective history.
The participating artists are: Silas Finch (Web), Stephen Grossman (Web), Mary Lesser (Web), Nathan Lewis (Web), Irene K. Miller (Web), Meredith Miller (Web), Kevin van Aelst (Web) and Thuan Vu (Web).
There will be an opening reception on Sat., May 19, from noon—2 p.m.
