McLean Project for the Arts

Opening Exhibition Reception (FULL)


This event is now full and registration is closed. 
Join MPA Thursday, December 2, from 6:30-8:30pm in the galleries as we open our two Winter exhibitions --
Give and Take: Building Form (Emerson Gallery)
Featuring dynamic abstract sculptural works by four artists who work primarily in wood, this exhibit will explore each artist’s personal vision along with their methodology of making. By employing varying degrees of adding and subtracting material–laminating or carving, sawing and sanding–these artists build form by either giving or taking away. With this mind, process is highlighted, understood and demonstrated with an eye towards clarifying the genesis and emergence of form.
Intersectional Painting: Works by Shelia Crider (Atrium Gallery)
Artist Sheila Crider will exhibit works from an on-going series that combines painting, drawing, braiding, stitching and weaving to create three-dimensional abstract forms. Through these works, which are both beautiful and evocative, Crider has found an inventive and original process that enables her to visually explore multiple intersections between material, place, tradition, race, gender, history, culture, narrative, art, painting, object and picture.
The Opening Reception will be divided into two sessions, one at 4pm and the other at 6:30pm. 
We ask that all attendees provide proof of vaccination at the door and to wear a properly fitting mask inside the galleries.
This event is free and open to the public, but each session is limited to 30 attendees.
