NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The Castle Gallery at The College of New Rochelle will host Intersecting Editions – a dialogue between print and ceramic media.
The exhibit runs from Tuesday, Sept. 2 through Sunday, Nov. 2. The opening reception takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 18. The gallery is located on the New Rochelle campus at 29 Castle Place. This exhibition challenges the traditional assumption that artists pursue one material and methodology at a time by showing the complex dialogue between print and ceramic media.
Artists in this exhibit embrace “a post-disciplinary spirit” that goes beyond strict roles of ceramic artist or printmaker. By blending identities the artists have opened new avenues that combine techniques from both disciplines. Curators Sarah Rowe and Rachel Sydlowski, who both incorporate printmaking and ceramics in their own studios, have put together an exhibit that shows the results of interdisciplinary thinking between ceramics and printmaking.
The outcomes range from traditional forms of reproducibility to cast sculpture and ephemeral performance-based methods of mark-making, as well as printmaking methods such as slip cast multiples, screen printing, decals, video and photography. “We chose to focus on crossing disciplines because many artists today are working in a cross-disciplinary way," said Rowe.
"The connections between printmaking and ceramics are not often directly highlighted in a gallery or museum setting. Though decals and mold making have been employed within the ceramics field for hundreds of years we wanted to investigate how artists are exploring and stretching this ever evolving relationship between printmaking and ceramics. Each piece in the show speaks to a different level of crossing disciplines.” Artists in the exhibition include: Dylan J. Beck, Alison Carey, Ane Fabricius Christiansen, Christine Facella, Future Retrieval, Sin-ying Ho, Jessica Kreutter, Matthew McConnell, Scott Rench, Hope Rovelto, Amanda Small, and W.A. Ehren Tool.
