In Washington Street’s new show, Ambient, visual art reflects the co-incidence experimental music residency hosted by Non-Event and held in the Washington Street gallery.
In conjunction with the weeklong event led by invited guest artist Michael Pisaro, the visual artists of Washington Street are interpreting the term “ambient.” Represented media include painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, embroidery, and installation.
Jill Comer’s sculptural installation draws on meaningful symbols from her life; Jesse Kenas Collins and Mitch Shiles have created near-invisible installations that you might overlook. Lee Kilpatrick is exhibiting personal panoramic photography, and Gretchen Graham is working with color photography rather than with her usual black and white. Athena Moore’s book-based sculpture draws on her bookbinder training, while Lauren Leone and Sally Scopa exhibit some of the larger pieces, embroidery and oil pastels, respectively.
