From the Big Apple to Ashland: The Schneider Museum of Art Presents Fall Exhibit Breaking Pattern
The Schneider Museum of Art’s newest exhibition, Breaking Pattern, a multi-artist showcase curated by Matthew Delegate and Rossana Martinez of Brooklyn’s Minus Space gallery, highlights explorations of pattern, optical and perceptual abstract painting through selected works by seven artists from across the country.
Featured artists are an accomplished bunch, including an associate professor at the Yale School of Art (Anoka Faruqee), internationally exhibited artists (Michelle Grabner, Michael Scott, and Gilbert Hsiao), a New York Foundation for the Arts painting fellowship recipient (Douglas Melini) and an artist in the public collection of the Museum of Modern Art (Gabriele Evertz). Not too shabby!
The group’s collected work shares the common characteristic of reflecting on pattern and repetition; from the vivid line-based color spectrums of Evertz, to the power clashing plaid and line forms of Melini, to the manic pattern collages of Porray, this collection is an entrancing meditation on repetition in art.
Accompanying Breaking Pattern in The Schneider’s Treehaven Gallery is a dual exhibition by the collection’s two curators titled With You in Constant Conversation, which features Martinez’s “Sweet Like Candy to My Soul,” a performance piece using chairs and books, and Deleget’s “Zero-Sum,” a curated collection of discarded art publications.
Yes, this is a recommendation.
The exhibit opened Oct. 2 and runs through Dec. 5. Docent-led tours will also be available to the public Tuesdays at noon. Regular Museum hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm.
10 p.m. – 4 p.m., Oct 2 – Dec 5
