UPCOMING EVENTS
Reperception, freeform art space
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Lindsey Wolkowicz, Long Division

October 20th- November 3rd
featuring the work of
Andrew Brown, Lindsey Wolkowicz, and Scout Dunbar
curated by Jane Gordon

When we venture out into the world, moving through places, spaces, and time, these experiences form memories, which in turn inform our sense of self and personal identity. As we remember and remember again, our memories alter. Does our identity inform our changing memories just as our memories inform our identity? How does the interaction of our physical bodies in space alter our experiences of place and time, and in turn our memories of places and times? In this exhibit, three artists explore these concepts in differing yet overlapping ways, shaped by their own places, experiences, and identities.
 
Andrew Brown, who lives and teaches in Boca Raton, Florida, explores his own personal meaning through compositions that juxtapose time, object, and place to find a greater understanding of our current culture. Lindsey Wolkowicz lives in Kingston, NY, and her multi-disciplinary work investigates the relationships between our bodies and the spaces they occupy. Rather than alluding to a specific person or place, the combination of architectural references and the human figure evokes feelings of the connections between our bodies and built spaces, transitional states of being and the unifying idea of our existence in time and within space. Scout Dunbar recently moved to Santa Fe, and continues her exploration of the coexistence of nature and industry through drawings of landscapes dissected by rigid, grid-like structures. She is influenced by New Mexican architecture and landscapes, particularly the combination of subtle earth tones punctuated by bursts of bright hues; for her this echoes the importance of humanity honoring its place within nature.
 
These works display a careful reexamination of experiences through a personal lens, acknowledging the delicate nature of our memories, and aiming to situate our bodies and identities within their experiences and surroundings, rather than dividing or drawing lines between ourselves, the objects and ideas we create, and the beings and substances that surround us.

Superfine! Art Fair,  Washington, D.C.
Julie Ward, Pricked Diptych 2

October 31st- November 4th

Art Shape Mammoth is excited to participate again in Superfine! the fair in Washington, D.C. In booth number 43 of the Heartlandia curated section we will present the work of fourteen ASM affiliated artists:
Aimee Hertog,
Andrew Brown, Athena Axiomakaros, Cori Champagne, Erin Gleason, Fay Stanford, Jane Gordon, Jessica Mongeon, Julie Ward, Lindsey Wolkowicz, Maureen O'Leary, Renee Regan, Rita Bard, and Wendy Copp.
 
Maureen O'Leary, Thomas Clarke

Superfine! The Fair was created by James Miille, an artist, and Alex Mitow, an arts entrepreneur, in 2015 as a reaction to what they saw in the art market -- inflated prices, sluggish sales, and a widening valley between a constantly growing art-appreciating public and an insular art world positioned outside of their price range and comfort zone.

With the support of our devoted exhibitors, collectors, and media outlets, we've worked together to build not just another art fair, but a brand new art market whose success rests on the shoulders of not just a select few, but all who take pleasure in supporting talented, passionate emerging contemporary artists.
TUSCANY CREATIVE RETREAT
In early May this year eleven people traveled to the Tuscan region of Italy to experience an atmosphere of peace, incredible scenery, and a rich history of art and architecture during a two week stay at Tenuta di Spannocchia. The 1,100 acres of Spannochia are part of the Riserva Naturale Alto Merse, which spans hills and valleys, both steep and rolling, rich with vegetation and clay soils, scattered with fresh streams and ancient buildings.

Spannocchia is difficult to sum up in few words – it is part bed and breakfast, part organic farm and wholistic land management practice, part winery and kitchen, and part collaborative community. The property was first built on in the 13th century, and the communication tower from that time is still a central structure to the castello that has been built up and modified over many centuries.

The travelers in our group came with different motives in mind, some seeking inspiration for creativity, some a learning experience, and some looking to relax and re-center in a setting which proved to be conducive to all of these things.

Apply Now for Spring 2019!
ASM will again be offering a creative retreat for all disciplines this summer at Spannocchia: writing, painting, photography, and a ceramic studio with wood-firing kiln! April 24th-May 7th, 2019.
