Taking on the role of curator for the first time, Rosalind Bloom has invited three other artists to join her in an exhibition of work that addresses issues of public concern. The art created by these women acknowledges and explores their own privilege, opens up a dialogue on issues of continued relevance such as gender inequality, other past and present social injustices, and the history of American racial tensions. In the face of hatred and oppression we all need to own our own complicity. Join us as we share, listen and discuss. Each artist will show new work that continues to investigate a given theme or medium.
Petrology - Gallery 2
Paintings by Rebecca Schultz
Hosted @DVAA - July 25th - Aug 5th
Opening reception: July 25th, 6-8pm @ DVAA
Petrology is an installation comprised of large-scale paintings inspired by the rock formations Rebecca observed and sketched during her recent travels--Iceland, New England, Wyoming, and the Philadelphia region. Working with rocks has informed both the formal and emotional elements of her process: shapes and lines that have introduced her to new modes of mark-making and composition alongside reflections on impermanence. Rocks appear immutable but they are formed by the most extreme, dynamic, and elemental processes on our planet. In capturing the essence of rock formations, Rebecca is reflecting upon what they have already witnessed and what they will experience as our planet changes.
