PRESS: Letterpress as a public art project | 49 Main Street
Latitude, inspired by a 1763 mathematics manuscript describing instructions for setting up a sundial, explores the responses of four artists responding to the drawing of the sundial. Utilizing various materials of pressure prints, letterpress, and fiber arts, the artists work with their own themes and interests to comment on time specifically in relation to the cosmos, family, documentation and historical versus contemporary technology.
The artists, Erin Malkowski, Tara O’Brien, Erin Paulson, and Charissa Schulze, make artwork-using technology equally as obsolete as a sundial. The artwork will range from books, both traditional reproductions to artist books, pressure prints, letterpress, and fiber arts.
MCLA Gallery 51 | 51 Main Street
Although Margaret Noel and Rocco Scary employ very different methods to create their works, the processes they use are inextricably bound to the concept and subject matter of their works. This Two-Person exhibition brings together work that begins in the form of wax, plant fiber, water, pigment, steel, rust, cut-up magazines, old toys, and the tinkling sound of a carousel that no longer exists.
Based in Brooklyn, N.Y., Margaret Noel incorporates imagery from industrial structures and western landscapes in her collaged paintings, while New Jersey artist Rocco Scary – who is known for his works on handmade paper – will show his sculptures, drawings and artist books with a focus on the specificity of place as a reservoir for memory.
Neck of the Woods Gallery | 87 Main Street
Cardburg: Cardboard City. The Teen Summer Residency (TSR) paired with Kathline (Kate) Carr,a local professional artist, on a collaborative project. Throughout the month of July, Kate and teens opened the space as a work-in-progress as they explore concepts of recycling and architecture through the construction of an immersive cardboard city.
