The Visual Arts Department at Union College presents Accordion Space, a group exhibition featuring works by Aschely Cone, Doron Langberg, Susan Lichtman, Sangram Majumdar, Claire Sherman, and Didier William, curated by Union College Assistant Professor of Drawing and Painting, Laini Nemett. Accordion Space highlights six painters who challenge the classical idea of figure-ground, expanding and compressing space in unpredictable ways. The 13 large scale canvases and accompanying works on paper all represent tangible space in a range of styles from narrative figuration to gestural abstraction. There will be an opening reception at the gallery on Friday, October 20th, from 5-7pm, free and open to the public.
