We're excited to present three new exhibitions opening on January 23,
including Thea Clark: Do/Undo. This show
features artist Thea Clark's earliest and most current work covering
a ten-year period on the theme of conflict between nature and the
built environment due to accelerating climate change.
The earliest work began after Clark, a former NJ resident,
experienced Hurricanes Irene and Sandy. These two catastrophic
weather events in a short period of time left an indelible emotional
impact, while time spent volunteering in Staten Island after Sandy
led to absorbing powerful scenes of destruction.
The artist responded by creating works in red, the color of alarm.
Images of houses, trees, weather and isobar maps she studied printed
on fabric made their way into the pieces as seen in necklace Red
Weather 1 (pictured left). These works mark the beginning
of Clark's ten-year production of climate crisis-informed artmaking.
We invite you to join us in our studios on Saturday,
January 22, from 1 - 4 pm for Mapping Nature Pendant
Making, a special workshop led
by Thea Clark where you will create a pendant influenced by
climate change using various jewelry tools, collaged paper images,
copper, and more. This exclusive workshop is also an opportunity to
meet the artist and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of
her work prior to the exhibition opening.
