Two Breathtaking Exhibition Openings
Be the first to see the newest exhibitions at A&H’s Maitland Art Center, Artist in Residence TWO: Leigh Tarentino and Cicero Greathouse: Hybrids.
Cicero Greathouse: Hybrids
Researching and thinking differently manifested one day as Cicero was flattening boxes for recycling. As he deconstructed the containers to flat pieces of cardboard, he was intrigued by the shapes they became. Some of the shapes resembled stele, and elevations of facades he had seen on his journeys in Mexico and Asia. These shapes were used as ‘plates’ for the mono-prints found in the exhibition.
Artist in Residence TWO: Leigh Tarentino
Former A&H artist in residence, Leigh Tarentino brings us two exhibitions in one. Memories of Snow is a series of small black and white paintings on wood panels. The paintings depict familiar, archetypal suburban spaces, but in a sinister otherworldly light. On the Winding Path features work inspired by her time at A&H. During her residency, she was particularly intrigued by the layout of the A&H’s Maitland Art Center, with the garden in the center and the studios, museum and pathways surrounding it, all enclosed within walls and kind of set apart from everyday life. This fascination took shape in the form of art created on upright panels.
Participate and Interact
Take part in interactive art activities centered around Cicero Greathouse’s approach to printing. Artists Chris Ware and Whitney Broadaway will be on hand to show guests how to make their own prints using recycled materials.
