Winter Workspace Artists Around Town

Sandee Harris is a greeter at Wave Hill’s Glyndor Gallery.

We are excited about upcoming exhibitions in which three 2012 Wave Hill Winter Workspace artists are participating:  Nova Jiang, Nick Lamia, and Danielle Durchslag.  The Winter Workspace is a great opportunity to engage the public in a personal dialogue with the artists.  I have enjoyed chatting with them and asking questions, and they were very eager to talk about their work.  I have another level of appreciation after witnessing part of the process involved in creating the work for these exhibitions.

House, 2012, is one of the drawings that Nova Jiang created in this year’s Winter Workspace. Thanks to Nova for allowing us to reproduce it here.

These artists, who were inspired by their time at Wave Hill, are showing their work and reaching a wider audience.  Jiang’s drawings at Illuminated Metropolis were made during her residency at Wave Hill.  Lamia’s installation at Jason McCoy Gallery focuses on one of Wave Hill’s copper beech trees.  And at Christopher Henry Gallery, Durchslag is showing cut paper collages that are similar to the type of work she made during the Winter Workspace Program. Today’s Manhattan User’s Guide, by the way, includes a nice write-up about the opening of that last show, which  is tonight, May 10, from 6 to 9pm.

Hope you make time to visit their shows:
