Michelle Samour: Mapping Borders and Boundaries

February 13 - November 28
(detail) Reverse painting on clear acrylic, backed with foil

Online Exhibition Mapping Borders and Boundaries is a series of works by Michelle Samour that appeals to the artist’s ancestral past as a means of further engaging in the politico-geographic concepts of homeland, exile, and diaspora.

Transparent digital photo of melting glass

Lower Tarlow Gallery David Schnuckel’s Meaningful Gibberish bridges contemporary craft, material study, and multiple media to challenge long-held notions of object making. The interdisciplinary exhibition disrupts traditional glass process to question what words like “mastery” can mean in material relationships, what the term “craftsmanship” can fully encompass when process goes experimental, and where notions of “skill” can truly reside when turned inside out. With works involving glass, photography, writing, drawing, and video, the experimental exhibition ultimately seeks to answer the…

Amy Genser: Shifting

January 22, 2022 - November 20, 2023

Atrium Gallery Connecticut artist Amy Genser works with paper and paint to explore her ongoing obsession with texture, pattern, and color. Using paper as pigment, she layers, cuts, rolls, and combines the humble material into vibrant tableaux that are inspired by the natural world—the flow of water, the shape of beehives, the organic irregularity of plants, and more. For her site-specific installation at Fuller Craft Museum, Genser explores the mutable beauty of Fuller Craft Museum’s natural surroundings. Using her language…
