Guttenberg Arts is pleased to present “Made Here: Summer 2018,” a group exhibition featuring our current artists in residence; Anne Marie Lavigne, Michael Covello Odalla, Mamadou Sow and Amanda Thackray. On view July 28th - September 21st, 2018. The works included in Made Here were created during the artist’s residences this summer. Guttenberg Arts will host an opening reception, open studio and backyard barbecue in celebration of our 4th year in operation on Saturday July 28th, 4pm - 10pm.
During her time in residence, Amanda Thackray created both works on paper using printmaking techniques and sculptural ceramic forms. Thackray’s sculptural pieces carry a direct relationship to her work on paper and depicts elements of the interior human body. Through drawing, prints, and sculptures, Thackray explores what it means to have a body. Often abstracted and teased apart, I create fantastical landscapes that depict a low-fi, sci-fi world of shifting internal bodily bondage.
Mamadou Sow explored new methods at Guttenberg Arts and produced a new series of work in which his process combines digital technologies and traditional printmaking techniques. Conceptually, Sow’s work celebrates his African and cultural background, the future of technology and classical emotions about family, love, life and death.
Michael Covello Odalla’s new hybrid wall-mounted sculptures integrate printmaking, cyanotype, and painting. Covello thinks through material, mark and endless movement. His dense, non-objective work builds up multifaceted environments that flicker with unexpected surfaces and textures.
Anne Marie Lavigne explored the potentialities of screen printed compositions on paper. At Guttenberg Arts, Lavigne created a new series entitled GRAVITAT. Compositions of fine and ethereal lines appear as if hovering on paper, subtilely referring to the weight gravity has on perception.
“Made Here: Summer 2018” marks the 38th exhibition organized by Guttenberg Arts.
