Family Haunts considers the beckoning of ancestry and perceptions of present day relations through the paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, and assemblages of artists. The veils of memory, the desire to commemorate, and the need for identity compel these works of art into being. These nine artists siphon the particulars of familial connection into a visual scrapbook of our collective history.

Press Release

Our Daily Rite examines work by artists who engage in daily art making or explore the concept of ritual and marking time. Like Eleanor Antin’s photographic installation in which she documented her daily weight loss over thirty six days in 1972, artists have long been performing and documenting daily rituals. With the advent of social media, the daily art project has taken hold. Artists now upload and share their daily art projects instantaneously and hold themselves accountable to their social networks – to the perceived expectation and promise of one more day. This ritualistic aspect of daily art projects, whether a drawing, painting, or photo a day, reveals that the practice is in of itself as vital as the resulting imagery.

Local artists involved in daily art projects will exhibit their work alongside national and international artists whose work or studio practice explores the concept of ritual and marking time.

Artists include: Hillary Charnas (New York); Jamie Davis (Ohio); Matt Feiner (Connecticut); Steve Giovinco (New York); Pia Linz (Germany); Beth Castle Lovell (Connecticut); Ken Lovell (Connecticut); Martyna Matusiak (Poland); Nyeema Morgan (New York); Karen Nangle (Connecticut); T. Willie Raney (Connecticut); and Rob Rocke (Connecticut).
