“Lineal Investigations” Juried Exhibition
September 10 - October 11, 2015
Lineal Investigations will focus new interpretations in line. Lines can be hard, sharp, straight, geometric: they can be organic, smooth, soft, flowing, loopy, wavy. Works can range from traditional graphite and charcoal drawings to works from all mediums ---the key feature is the LINE!
Juror: Robbin Zella, Director and curator of the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport, CT. From 1998 forward, Zella has organized over 80 exhibitions at Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport that have introduced audiences to works by Ansel Adams, Jenny Holzer, Sol Le Witt, Rembrandt, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, among others. Robbin previously was the director of Artworks Gallery in Hartford, CT. During her time at Artworks, she worked to bring greater recognition to the artists cooperative by creating tandem programming that was relative to the time including bringing writers, critics and artists such as Donald Kuspit, Douglas Davis, Bessy Harvey and Andres Serrano (NEA Four) to the city and developing public art programs like "Off-Season Baseball" with Jerry Beck, a project that included working with diverse communities to create a city-wide event and temporary public art project in Bushnell Park.
