Twelve Artists,Twelve Objects, 2012
July 14 - August 25, 2012
Twelve Artists, Twelve Objects, 2012 brings together MFA graduates from the Metals program at The State University of New York, New Paltz. The idea for this exhibition developed out of a project assigned at New Paltz where the objective is for students to have a limited amount of time to create a concise body of work. The project becomes an exercise in sketching, material explorations and trusting ones intuition.
Each artist has created twelve discrete pieces to be exhibited. The imposed parameters gives each artist the opportunity to take a step back from their regular practice to participate in a process oriented, idea generating exercise. The spectrum of working styles from object makers to installation artists to jewelers will ensure that a diverse and interesting collection of art is presented.
