David Schnuckel: Meaningful Gibberish

September 11, 2021 - February 20, 2022

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…

Melissa Stern: The Talking Cure

January 27 - May 15

Upper Tarlow Gallery This multimedia exhibition by New York artist Melissa Stern combines the visual, literary, and performance arts and a spirited cast of characters formed from clay.
