Mount Airy Contemporary is pleased to present Achromatic, an exhibition of works guest curated by Melissa Maddonni Haims.
Artist’s Reception Saturday, September 23rd, 6-9 PM
For this exhibition, Haims, a Philadelphia-based sculptor and curator, selected artists working with fiber and charged them with creating work without color. All works in the show are created with white, fibrous materials and rely on elements of shape, form, texture and space to communicate through their individual designs.
“A white lace curtain on the window was for me as important as a great work of art. This gossamer quality, the reflection, the form, the movement. I learned more about art from that than I did in school.” - Louise Nevelson
