10-10-10 Ten artists-Ten objects-2010

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 24, 5-7pm


10-10-2010  is an exhibition that examines the creative process of  ten individuals. Each contributor has created ten discrete pieces in a body of work. The pieces are finished objects, though depending on the materials this allows for a wide range of interpretations on completion.

The idea for this exhibition developed out of a project often assigned at The State University of New York – New Paltz where the objective is for students to have a limited amount of time to create a concise, abridged body of work. The project becomes an exercise in stream of consciousness thinking, decision-making, material exploration and consideration, sketching, and model-making. The results are raw but thoughtful. By implementing limited parameters, the work reflects a fresh approach to a familiar medium.

10-10-2010 brings together ten graduates  from The State University of New York – New Paltz to examine their own making styles. The collection of participants represents the spectrum of working styles- from object makers to installation artists to jewelers. Each of these makers has continued their practice in object or jewelry making, and this exhibit gives them an opportunity to take a step back from their regular practice to participate in a process oriented, idea generating exercise.

Curated by Sarah Abramson.

Participating Artists: Kate Bauman - Nikky Bergman - Erin Daily - Maureen Duffy - Colleen Heineman - Jamie Sachs - Jessica Stephens - Kristi Sword - Melissa Tolar - Brian Weissman.

Sarah Abramson received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the State University of New York, New Paltz.  She recently completed a prestigious year-long post as Artist- In- Residence at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
