Exhibition: Contemporary Practice by Erika Mahr

Contemporary Practice   
The New Hampshire Institute of Art
Manchester, New Hampshire   
February 18 - March 26, 2016

The New Hampshire Institute of Art is pleased to present "Contemporary Practice," a group exhibition curated by Sam Trioli. The exhibition opens on Thursday, February 18th in the Roger Williams Gallery (77 Amherst Street, Manchester, NH) and will remain on view until Saturday, March 26, 2016. This exhibition is free and open to the public.

"Contemporary Practice" explores present day art making processes in the work of fourteen artists, assembling a survey of painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics and installation. Each in a different fashion, these artists test the boundaries of context, process, and classification of contemporary art. Collectively, they are constructing a landscape of art-marking and production in this moment in art history, and a broader understanding of the momentum of contemporary art.

Participating artists include: Chris Archer, Aneta Bartos, Robert Chamberlin, Christo, Nathan Dilworth, Tim Donovan, Austin Eddy, Shaina Gates, Terrence Koh, Tyler Lafreniere, Erika Mahr, Sara Maria Salamone, Adam Stennett and Dustin Yellin

Curatorial: Painting Reassembled by Erika Mahr

Painting Reassembled 

Curated by Erika Mahr
Fine Arts Gallery, SUNY Westchester Community College, NY
February 1 - April 16, 2016

Painting Reassembled brings together the work of Katie Bell, Joseph Montgomery, and Lumin Wakoa to examine the materiality and objecthood of painting through the reassembling of objects, materials, and forms. These artists utilize the process of painting as a catalyst for the generation and regeneration of ideas and imagery. Fragments collected from a wide array of sources, including earlier works, are recycled and reconstructed to create new compositions that challenge the traditional constraints of painting through both collage and assemblage. Each piece is a record of the artist’s actions, and pose to us the possibilities of future reconstructions.
