“text/ure” Exhibition Opens at Shirley Fiterman Art Center

May 26, 2017

The art exhibition “text/ure” opened in the Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay Street, with a reception on Tuesday, May 30. The exhibit will run through September 9.

“text/ure,” curated by Kristen Frederickson with assistant curator Avery Curran, features the work of Brenna Beirne, Colin Chase, Paul D’Agostino, Lisa Corinne Davis, Kelly Driscoll, Ula Einstein, Paul Gagner, David Henderson, Oliver Jones, Courtney Puckett, Christine Sciulli, Duston Spear and Kate Teale.

“The artists included here celebrate texture and material,” says Frederickson. “Whether in the form of drawings, sculptural drawings or installations that can be experienced as spatial drawings, this exhibition invites the viewer to ‘read’ the work as marks of expression open to multi-layered interpretation, while luxuriating in an experience of precisely chosen materials and process.”

The Shirley Fiterman Art Center is located on the first floor of Fiterman Hall at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY). In partnership with the BMCC Foundation Board, a not-for-profit organization, the Shirley Fiterman Art Center is dedicated to raising funds for student scholarships and ensuring the success of students who come from every borough of New York, across the United States and countries around the world, seeking better lives.

The public is welcome to visit the Shirley Fiterman Art Center from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, please call (212) 776-6237 after 12 noon.
