March 28, 2024 - May 12, 2024

Concord, MA – Beginning Thursday, March 28, Concord Art presents Reshaping Abstraction, curated by Adria Arch. This exhibition brings together the work of twenty-two artists from across the United States and practicing in a variety of media. It will be on view through May 12. The exhibition celebrates a spirit of vitality and the “radical act [it is] to be joyful and buoyant against a world that has so much difficulty—that’s the heart of it,” says curator Adria Arch. Arch sought “artists whose sensibility is lyrical, colorful, and thoroughly engaged with material… Sculptural approaches abound, characterized by the manipulation of painted wood, plastic, paper, unstretched canvas, and dyed yarn. Fresh, ambitious, and sassy, this work provides a space for engagement and release.”

Artists featured in the exhibition include Adria Arch, Allison Baker, Olivia Baldwin, Lisa
Barthelson, Catherine Bertulli, Gregg Blasdel, Kim Carlino, Donnabelle Casis, Cyrille Conan,
Maya Erdelyi, Cadence Giersbach, Kate Hale, Jai Hart, Damien Hoar de Galvan, Vanessa
Irzyk, Bonny Leibowitz, Frances Lerner, Beth O’Grady, Destiny Palmer, Katrina Sanchez,
Suzan Shutan, and Karen Snouffer.
Arch is a Boston-based mixed media artist, educator, and arts advocate. She is a member
of the Boston Sculptors Gallery, and her work is housed in both private and public
collections. Arch has completed residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for
the Creative Arts, Sanskriti Foundation in Delhi, and in Auvillar, France.
A catalog of the exhibition will be available at Concord Art. For more information, contact
