One of sixteen artists featured in the deCordova Biennial in Lincoln, Massachusetts. This exhibition represents the deCordova’s longstanding commitment to artists working in New England, celebrating the most compelling and ambitious art-making in the region. The sixteen artists selected for the Biennial are from across all six northeastern states—Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Their work represents a broad range of experience and explores diverse mediums and themes. These include creative translations of the natural world, innovations in abstraction, and investigations of digital processes and communication. Each artist is making a significant contribution to the contemporary art dialogue in New England today through the originality and dedication to excellence in their work. Read more about the show at the deCordova website.
On a rainy day after the election I stopped by the Guggenheim to see the Agnes Martin retrospective. These paintings were the result.
This series is included in the exhibition: Sympathetic Vibration: Selected works by Rachelle Beaudoin, Janet Hullings Bleicken, Sally Bomer, Brian D. Cohen, Glen Scheffer and Craig Stockwell on view at the Thorne-Sagendorph Gallery at Keene State College through March 26, 2017. The show features new and recent painting, sculpture, photography, installation, and performance by six area artists whose works, in a variety of ways, connect local and global issues and images.
