April 20 – June 1, 2018
Opening Reception: Friday, May 4th, 6:00-9:00 pm
Abigail Ogilvy Gallery is proud to present Domestic Memory, an exhibition featuring four artists whose work depicts the human form through the use of household materials. Lisa A. Foster’s patchwork silhouettes constructed from colonial and civil war era reproduction fabrics, and Janet Loren Hill’s use of knit motifs draw on the historically feminine tradition of sewing and knitting. While Marisa Adesman’s depictions of women covered in frosting and Julianne Wallace Sterling’s nude drawings on meat trays focus on the ways we consume the female form. Placing equal (if not heavier) emphasis on the materials used rather than the subject depicted, each artist strives to evoke commonalities amongst the viewers.
