(GLASSBORO, NJ) -- Rowan University Art Gallery presents Cultivated Space, a new group exhibition featuring work by Anonda Bell, Henry Bermudez, Linda Brenner, Fritz Dietel, Steven Donegan, Rachel Eng, Darla Jackson, Martha Jackson-Jarvis, Mi-Kyoung Lee, Michelle Marcuse, Sana Musasama, and Joanna Platt. The exhibition runs from April 11 through July 16, 2022.
This group exhibition includes works that resonate with the complexities and divergent perceptions attributed to gardens and cultivated spaces. On a personal and intimate level, gardens are perceived as a place of refuge, solace and emotional centering. The larger broader impacts, however, reveal the disparate interpretations of cultivated spaces from socio-economic and environmental perspectives. The works in this exhibition are not literal representations, but rather through artistic processes and intentions serve as an entry point in considering a myriad of intersections.
Cultivated Space is co-curated by Syd Carpenter, Marsha Moss, and Mary Salvante, in collaboration with Philadelphia Sculptors—a nonprofit organization based in Philadelphia that provides professional services to regional artists, promotes contemporary sculpture, and works to expand public awareness of the role and value of sculpture through exhibitions, public forums, member services, and educational outreach.
The gallery will host an opening reception on April 14 from 5:00pm-7:00pm.
Rowan University Art Gallery is located at 301 High St W in Glassboro, New Jersey. The gallery is open Monday through Friday (10:00am - 5:00pm) and Saturday (11:00am - 4:00pm). All visitors must wear a mask and practice safe distancing. Free parking is available in the parking garage on Mick Drive near the Gallery.
Rowan University Art Gallery serves as a vibrant cultural destination for South Jersey, the Rowan community, and the surrounding region. Our mission is to provide a platform for discourse on best practices in contemporary art by professional artists, curators, and scholars through the presentation of interdisciplinary art exhibitions, panel discussions, guest curatorial projects, and other public programming.
