Press release from Institute Library
Ten contemporary artists integrate their work into a 186 year-old space, emphasizing historic integrity while exploring new connections. The artwork exists between two and three dimensions, is site-specific and responds to the issues of material ingenuity, color, architecture and reductivist aesthetics. Making Room was curated by Suzan Shutan.
Exhibiting artists are Richard Bottwin (NY), Melanie Carr (CT), Kevin Daly (CT), Robert Gregson (CT), Adam Lister (VA), Faber Lorne (CT), Debra Ramsay (NY), Karen Schifano (NY, see image), Paul Theriault (CT) and Jill Vasileff (CA). The show will be on display from Oct. 6 through Nov. 3. There will be an artists' reception on Sat., Oct. 6, from noon to 2 p.m.
