The Hermaphrodites: Living In Two Worlds
UPSTAIRS: Wexler Gallery hosted The Hermaphrodites: Living In Two Worlds, a group show curated by Leslie Ferrin, owner of Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield, MA. The exhibition took place on the gallery’s second floor.
The Hermaphrodites: Living In Two Worlds focused on figural sculpture that both embodies the literal definition of hermaphrodites (encompassing both genders) and the conceptual nature of the term as it applies to sculpture that can be categorized equally as contemporary fine art sculpture or decorative art. The exhibition concentrated on contemporary artists working with ceramics, who also adopt other processes, materials, and techniques commonly found outside of their discipline.
Featured artists included Chris Antemann, Christie Brown, Jason Briggs, Beth Cavener Stichter, Cynthia Consentino, Anne Drew Potter, Judy Fox, Gerit Grimm, Bridget Harper, Sergei Isupov, Myungjin Kim, Dana Major Kanovitz, Matt Nolen, Kelly Garrett Rathbone, Dirk Staschke, Tip Toland, Jason Walker, Kurt Weiser, Red Weldon Sandlin, and Irina Zaytceva.
