FREE; please RSVP!
Join us for the opening reception of “Confluence: A Way Forward,” the inaugural exhibit in Staten Island Arts new location in Stapleton. You’ll be able to meet and network with community members, colleagues, and Susan Grabel. Light refreshments will be provided.
Susan Grabel is a figurative sculptor and printmaker. Her work deals with the human dimensions of social issues. Her new work, Confluence: A Way Forward, arises out of a deep concern for the survival of our species and planet through this current vitriolic, hyper-partisan political climate. Confluence reflects her hope and vision – that by coming together and embracing differences can we move forward.
Confluence features collagraph monoprints, collages and digital fabrications, which mark a change in focus, process, and materials for Grabel. She had been working in this spirit and using these forms for a series of collagraph monoprints and collages for a number of years when she discovered, by way of the Staten Island MakerSpace, how new technology and expertise could enable her to translate her work into larger scale pieces in wood using a laser cutter and CNC router. The digital fabrications in this show mark a new direction in her new artistic journey.
Organized by Monica Valenzuela.
