Schick Art Gallery welcomes the Skidmore community
The Schick Art Gallery is once again open to the Skidmore community with “Indelible: Works in Ink from Pierogi Gallery and Flat Files” on view now through Oct. 2.
Skidmore staff, faculty and students may stop by the gallery from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Members of the Skidmore community without access to the Saisselin Art Center should call the number posted on the main entrance and a gallery monitor will assist them.
The gallery, which is currently only open to the Skidmore community, can accommodate up to 10 people at a time. Classes are welcome during open hours or by making an appointment with Rebecca Shepard or Trish Lyell. Masks are required at all times.
The exhibition features pieces of art by 35 artists using ink as their primary medium. The pieces represent a wide range of approaches, from abstract to representational, geometric to biomorphic and minimal to expressive. They range in size from as tiny as 1 inch to as large as 10 by 20 feet.
Schick Gallery Director Rebecca Shepard discusses artwork at the exhibition "Indelible: Works in Ink from Pierogi Gallery and Flat Files," which runs through Oct. 2.
Two large drawings by artist Dawn Clements are among the works in “Indelible.” Clements lived and worked in the Capital Region for many years before moving to New York City. Her work was exhibited in the 2010 Whitney Biennial, among other prominent venues, and is held in collection at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of Art in New York.
“Curating the show has been a fantastic experience,” said Schick Gallery Director Rebecca Shepard. “Ink can be a little bit scary. It's permanent, so when you work with it, you have to be a little bit daring and willing to commit. We sought a range of work for this exhibit because we wanted our students to see all the different possibilities ink offers and to be inspired.”
A full list of featured artists, along with additional information about the Pierogi Flat Files and the exhibition, is available on the Schick’s website.
