Pathways to Abstraction: Irwin E. Thompson & Ingrid Scheibler

Pathways to Abstraction: Irwin E. Thompson & Ingrid ScheiblerRunning from September 20, 2016 to October 22, 2016 in the Holzwasser Gallery.

This exhibition explores the painting practices of two NAC students whose work is anchored in the academic disciplines of their former careers. For Scheibler, articulating abstract concepts was at the core of her career as a philosophy professor. Now, through her colorful compositions, she explores new ways of externalizing and expanding upon those ideas. For Thompson, the abstract scientific principles that were central to his career as a medical researcher have long fueled his interest in non-representational art. Together, the exhibition examines the personal histories of the artists and asks how science, memory and language can inform and inspire abstract art.

A Curatorial Opportunity Program Exhibition curated by Pamela Campanaro

Darek Bittner | Dan DeRosato | Kevin Frances | Mark Hoffmann | Emma Hogarth

You Are Here presents place as both physical and conceptual geographies. The exhibition title references the subjective phrase commonly found on directory maps, used to orient and help navigate people within public places. To pinpoint a specific location on a map is easy, but how we interpret place is an unpredictable variable. The artists exhibiting in You Are Here present place as physical, liminal, or psychological spaces through the mediums of: digital glitching, painting, sculpture, video, and collage.

Marlon Forrester: Running from January 5, 2016 to January 30, 2016 in the Holzwasser Gallery.

In it, free throw, three point, and half court lines become axis points, and access routes, for drawing exploration. A conceptual artwork, it requires the collective participation of many activators willing to follow the rules as they create a new path among many.

These three artists examplify the multivalent tendencies of the emerging generation, and have been brought together to create a unique harmony within the New Art Center’s Holzwasser Gallery.

Chuck Holtzman

Chuck HoltzmanRunning from January 16, 2015 to February 21, 2015 in the Holzwasser Gallery.

The New Art Center is pleased to announce the opening of Chuck Holtzman, an exhibition featuring drawings and sculptures by this Boston-based artist and renowned art educator. Highlighting the breadth and complexity of Holtzman’s elaborate investigations, his recent drawings of monumental scale are shown in relation to his intimate wall sculptures from the 1980s. In these disciplined compositions, both 2- and 3-dimensional, the artist uses traditional materials to create wild spaces of clashing and disjointed realities where a variety of visual languages coexist.

Holtzman’s process of cutting away and recycling material through careful inlays and juxtapositions is central throughout his work. The reconfiguring of matter in his explosive yet delicate sculptural works evoke architectural forms and construction sites while showcasing his refined carpentry technique. In his drawings, some of which are on view for the first time, the resulting effects recall partical physics and molecular biology where dissections of space and time collide in an almost cubist fashion that offers the viewer a rewarding experience of discovery.

Chuck Holtzman has received numerous grants and awards, including a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Grant in drawing. He is a well-known teacher at the Art Institute of Boston; Harvard’s Carpenter Center; the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the New Art Center. His work is in the collection of the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Davis Museum and Cultural Center, the Fogg Art Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston among others.

I Want to Smell Your Hair

I Want to Smell Your HairRunning from November 21, 2014 to December 20, 2014 in the Main Gallery.

A Curatorial Opportunity Program exhibition co-curated by Molly Segal, Robert Chamberlin and Laura Beth Reese

I Want to Smell Your Hair is an exhibition that explores intimacy as an integral foundation of artistic practice. The six artists featured in the exhibition use photography, sculpture, video and painting in addition to live performances, interactive programs and curation to construct a sense of closeness between themselves, their subjects and, ultimately, the viewer. This exhibition, as well as the related programs and performances, address the inherent discomfort in the quest for human connection. They complicate the artist/subject/viewer relationship and explore the complexity and moral ambiguity of using another person as a catalyst for creative work. The works on view are not simply depictions of closeness, but remnants of intimacy. They address the foundational and residual qualities of reaching out, trespassing and longing and document each artist's willingness to transgress social norms in an effort to engage meaningfully with other people.

Flash of an Instant

Flash of an InstantRunning from April 5, 2014 to May 9, 2014 in the Main Gallery.

A Curatorial Opportunity Program exhibition curated by Sarah Pollman and Caitlin Moore.

Flash of an Instant brings together work by nine artists to question photography’s ability to accurately document our experience of the world.Thelandscapes we live in seem stable, despite their constant flux. Likewise, photography has long been heralded as a static truth with a monocular vision of the world. But when fractured and subverted, multiple truths and parallel visions arise that make us reassess what we think we know.

John Steck Jr.’s photographs fade slowly, destroyed by the light that illuminates them. Still lifes by Robin Myers conflate the micro and the macro while Mark Dorf’s images chart and graph the land. Sam A. Harris re-thinks reality in surreal photographic documents and Sharon Harper explores physical and phenomenological attempts at looking at the sky. Kinetic sculptures by Anne Lilly mark and change the space they occupy through movement. Hidden paintings by John C. Gonzalez and Thomas Willis force viewers to search the gallery for traces of the artists' hands while an interactive installation by Pablo Gnecco asks the viewer to question one’s physical location.

When the unified truths of existence converge with the abstracted experiences these artworks provide, a space is created for new meanings to arise. Our own temporalities are affirmed: we are subject to disintegration and decay akin to the land we occupy. By experiencing these works of art -- photographic, sculptural and interactive- we are allowed, just for an instant, to see the world anew.

Boston Globe feature story on Wild and Woolly and the Curatorial Opportunity Program

“No other nation has taken a time and place from its past and produced a construct of the imagination equal to America’s creation of the West.” -David Murdoch, historian

The Wild West and the frontier history of the United States are cornerstones of national imagination and identity. Portrayal of the American West distorts history by blurring myth and reality, excluding histories of marginalized groups. Wild and Woolly exalts and satirizes celebrated western narratives and imagery. Global in its approach, it includes national and international artists Sean Downey (Jamaica Plain, MA), Olivier Laude (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), David Lefkowitz (Northfield, MN), Robin Myers (Jamaica Plain, MA) and Deborah Oropallo (Novato, CA), some of whom have roots in the American West. These Wild and Woolly artists blend fact and fiction to re-imagine the frontier landscape and its peoples.


The exhibition’s title, Wild and Woolly, an American expression that originated after the California Gold Rush, describes the ‘wild’ west of the United States. The title also references the 1917 silent Western film of the same name starring Douglas Fairbanks. The 1917 film spoofs the Western genre and crystallizes the history of fictional representation of the American West, a theme which this contemporary art exhibition brings full circle.

Christina Pitsch: Artist in Residence

Christina Pitsch: Artist in ResidenceRunning from January 2, 2014 to February 24, 2014 in the Holzwasser Gallery.

Christina Pitsch will be working as our first ever Artist In Residence in the Holzwasser Gallery January 2- February 24, 2014. Christina was one of the artists in our September 2013 exhibition in the main gallery titled Pedigree, curated by Elizabeth Devlin. This exhibition was one of the New Art Center’s Curatorial Opportunity Program selections. As an Artist In Residence, Christina will create artwork, lecture and interact with New Art Center students.


Christina received her MFA from The New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University and a BA from Sarah Lawrence College. She has exhibited and lectured on her work nationally and internationally and has been an Artist-in-Residence in the Open Studios program at the Currier Art Center, Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH.

Her work is a hybrid of materials and techniques driven by larger conceptual questions of cultural icons and gender identifcation. Frequently, her work uses animals (and fragments thereof) to tell stories about the complexity of relationships. She has shown extensively throughout the United States, including exhibitions at Purdue Univeristy (IN), Manhattanville College (NY), The Clay Art Center (NY), Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts, The Print Center (PA) and Palm Springs Art Museum. Internationally, she has participated in residencies and exhibitions in the Netherlands, Switzerland, China and Taiwan. This fall she had work here at the New Art Center and at the Governors Island Art Fair in New York City. Her work may also be seen at McGown Fine Art (Concord, NH) and POP Gallery (Gloucester, MA). She was featured in the March/April 2013 issue of Artscope magazine as one of the 13 for 2013 to watch.

Visit Christina during her open studio hours at the following times:

Wednesdays 12:00 PM- 6:00; Fridays 1:00- 4:00; and Saturdays 1:00- 5:00

The Country Between Us

The Country Between Us Running from November 15, 2013 to December 20, 2013 in the Main Gallery.

A Curatorial Opportunity Program exhibition curated by Ariel Freiberg.

The Country Between Us is both a void and a presence, protest and creative explosion. This exhibition shatters painting, using that act as a political metaphor.

Featuring the work of: Resa Blatman, Ariel Freiberg, Susan Still Scott, Zsuzsanna Varga Szegedi

Opening Reception: Friday, Nov. 15, 6-8:30pm

Panel Discussion/ The Way is Made by Walking: Forging New Paths Through Poetry and the Visual Arts

Wednesday, November 20, 7-9pm

Interactive panel Discussion moderated by The Country Between Us curator Ariel Freiberg with:

Nuit Banai, PhD, Professor of Art History, SMFA
Anna Deeny, PhD, Lecturer in History and Literature at Harvard
Lynne Cooney, Exhibitions Director, BU School of Visual Art


The panel will discuss the ways in which The Country Between Us uses poetry and the visual arts to underscore the social, personal and political messages of the exhibition. In the particular, the panel will focus on how the artists in the exhibition, which conscious of the history of painting, forge their own path.

In Carolyn Forche’s book of poems, “The Country Between Us” she begins the section entitled, “In El Salvador, 1978-80” with the epigraph by Antonio Machado, “Caminante, no hay camino/Se hace camino al andar. ” This quote translates to:“Traveler, there is no way. The way is made by walking.” This quote, articulates the distant hope of futility coupled with hope—the idea that no one has carved a path previously, that each individual holds the responsibility for taking action and shaping the world.

spatial process / social formRunning from October 24, 2011 to November 25, 2011 in the Main Gallery.

Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) Selection

Curated by Walker Waugh, co-founder of WORK gallery in Brooklyn, NY and associate director of the Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York, NY

Featuring the artwork of Eric Ayotte (ericayotte.com/index.php), Yamini Nayar (www.yamininayar.com), and Ryan O’Connor (www.theriottemple.com/), this exhibition stages the exploration of social, political, and religious ambiguity through the deconstruction of space and historical references. The artists blur boundaries between media and use found materials to destabilize meanings.  Ayotte’s painting systematically deconstructs and reconstructs Associated Press photographs of international events.  Nayar architecturally re-imagines sites of urban decay in one photographic body of work while in another she photographs sets she builds in her studio from found materials.  O’Connor combines disparate “readymade” objects to create new cultural connections and alternate environments.

We Still See The Black

We Still See The BlackRunning from September 12, 2011 to October 14, 2011 in the Main Gallery.

Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) Selection

Curated by Owen Rundquist and Alexander DeMaria

Drawing inspiration and imagery from Heavy Metal album covers, song lyrics and sounds, this exhibition features artwork by Vincent Como (www.vincentcomo.com), Matthew Hickey (www.spaceyprints.com), Karlynn Holland (www.karlhol.com), Seldon Hunt (www.seldonhunt.com), Nader Sadek (www.nadersadek.com), Joe Wardwell (www.joewardwell.com), Jack Wesley Schneider, Todd White (www.toddryanwhite.com) and artist collaborations Deep Slumber Lake (www.deepslumberlake.com) and Under the Same Shadow (www.myspace.com/underthesameshadow, www.alexanderdemaria.com, www.owenrundquist.com).  Some of the work has actually appeared as posters and album covers for bands and venues, and some as costumes and stage props for performances. Taking its title from “I Still See the Black” by heavy metal band Candlemass, each artist in “We Still See the Black” not only makes reference to heavy metal culture in his or her work, but also collapses that culture, manipulating its aesthetic and historic aspects into a personal language or style.
