The New Hampshire Institute of Art (NHIA) is pleased announce they will be hosting a pop-up exhibition, Borderline: NHIA MFA Alumni, on February 18 at 5pm at LAUNCH F18 Gallery in New York City in conjunction with the 2017 College Art Association Conference. The exhibition is a curatorial project by EDDYSROOM and is co-curated by Sam Trioli.
Alumni work from Glen Scheffer, Danny Snow, Brett Marcel, and Suzanne Revy will be on view.
Eddy’s personal work features mainly autobiographical paintings that straddle the line between figuration and abstraction. His monochromatic works—mixtures of oil pastel, cardboard, spray-paint, and newsprint—have been described as Picassoeque, with their flattened and fractured forms harkening back to 20th century Cubism. These works take inspiration from relationships in the artist’s personal life, whether a case of romantic rejection or a lost encounter with a stranger at a bar. Eddy’s more recent works feature abstract compositions of colorful, curvilinear shapes, which often resemble landscapes, hands, or portraits of women.
This event is free and open to the public and is also an opportunity for prospective graduate students to learn more about NHIA’s Master of Fine Arts and Master of Art programs. For additional information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
