Maake Magazine Fall Exhibition

  • The Woskob Family Gallery 146 South Allen Street State College, PA, 16801 United States (map)

Deal With It
August 22 – October 19, 2016
Opening Reception Thursday, September 8, 2016, 5–7 pm

Woskob Family Gallery is pleased to present Deal With It, a group exhibition curated by Maake Magazine Editor, Emily Burns.

The exhibition features a survey of contemporary painting and works on paper by thirty three contemporary artists. The collection highlights a range of genres, many exploring the tension between traditional and experimental materials and methodologies and offering a small slice of activity occurring in studios across the United States.

Due to the print and digital purview of Maake Magazine, the majority of work featured is typically explored via digital outlets and shared on either the backlit screen or the printed page. This exhibition, the rst physical collection to be curated by the magazine, seeks to recognize and further investigate the tensions that arise when works are presented in light of their digital reproducibility.

These works forge an immediate connection to our bodies, causing us to lean in closer, focus and reorient our eyes. We hope Deal with It will ignite conversations about the multitude of differences between reproductions and their objects, an issue that has become particularly poignant as laptops and phones become increasingly ubiquitous viewing devices for the visual arts.
