Garvey|Simon is pleased to announce the exhibition, Select, featuring work by seven artists chosen by director Elizabeth K. Garvey from the gallery’s inaugural Artist Review Program. The artists are Nancy Daubenspeck, Margot Glass, Leslie Kerby, Neema Lal, Linda Lindroth, Lily Prince, and Krista Svalbonas. The Artist Review Program exists to create dialogue with artists and to offer an accessible platform for visibility and potential exhibition at the gallery. This year’s artists are all women whose works are diverse in both subject matter and form. There is a romantic element in the drawings of rumpled envelopes by Margot Glass and in Lily Prince’s dreamlike landscapes. Krista Svalbonas and Leslie Kerby study domestic space, with Svalbonas creating collages contrasting city and country, while Kerby explores the use of shipping containers for permanent or temporary housing. Working with a different sort of container, Linda Lindroth flays and flattens vintage boxes with lavish colors and textures. Nancy Daubenspeck and Neema Lal both utilize a subtractive technique, Daubenspeck taking away and retouching layers of casein paint while Lal sandblasts her glass sculpture.
Select runs from August 4th – August 20th
