New Exhibit at the Marion Art Center
May 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Marion Art Center is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibit featuring Contemporary Prints by Allison Bianco and Stella Ebner. The MAC’s newest show is presented as a collaboration with Cade Tompkins Projects, a contemporary art gallery located in Providence, RI, owned and operated by art dealer and gallerist Cade Tompkins. The gallery “focuses on advancing and exhibiting contemporary art, featuring work by emerging artists, as well as mid-career and established artists in various mediums including painting, sculpture, printmaking, video, drawing, and installation.”
Cade Tompkins Projects describes the work of both artists: “Allison Bianco is a printmaker who uses a combination of intaglio and screen print to depict landscapes diminished by massive oceans and infinite skies. Her vibrant prints explore nostalgia and inconsistencies of memory. Stella Ebner explores the inherent qualities of printmaking to examine how imagery in our society is created and conveyed within the context of a deep appreciation for the moments that are left outside the picture frame – the overlooked, the forgotten. She primarily employs the mediums of screen print, water-based woodblock, and watercolor monoprint to realize her work.”
In lieu of an in-person reception, the Marion Art Center will celebrate its new exhibit with a free Virtual Gallery Tour & Conversation, one of the MAC’s eight SouthCoast Spring Arts events (marionartcenter.org/scspringarts). The virtual reception will take place via Zoom on Friday, May 7, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Participants can “tour” the MAC galleries with the MAC’s executive director. During the tour, gallerist Cade Tompkins will discuss the works of both artists and answer questions from visitors. As a bonus, get a sneak peek of the current show at Cade Tompkins Projects featuring works by Dean Richardson. “Visit” two galleries in two different locations all in one evening!
The MAC exhibit runs April 30 – May 28. Current gallery hours are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm, or by appointment Tuesday-Friday.
