A Practice in Process

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - Saturday, March 14, 2020

Join us for the Opening Reception on Wednesday, January 22 from 5-7 P.M. at Gallery 51

A Practice in Process is an exhibition intended to provide a window into the process that drives artists to make work and sustain a practice. The ability to sustain a practice, challenges artists with an unending search for very basic needs; a space to create, time to create, enough inspiration to motivate actual production and the ability to physically produce a final product. A Practice in Process shines a light on one way in which many artists attempt to address the arduous path of process in their practice. To continue to make and advance their work, many artists search for and attend artist residencies at least once, if not, many times throughout their careers.  An artist residency can create a space to either change their work drastically, by moving it into an entirely different direction, or by pushing it much further in the same direction.

North Adams continues to draw artists from all over the world. Its rich burgeoning arts community continues to grow and thrive in the region, amidst spaces like Gallery 51, MASS MoCA and many other spaces like it in Berkshire County. This exhibition brings together the work of eight artists who traveled to the region to participate in the Studios at MASS MoCA artist-in-residence program, between December of 2019 and during January of 2020. A Practice in Process, with work by Megan Reed, Tara Sabharwal, Celeste Wilson, Phil Rabovsky, M Slater, Barbezat-Villetard, Jonathan Michael Korotko and Charlene Tan, will be on view from Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - Saturday, March 14, 2020 at MCLA Gallery 51. This exhibition was co-curated by Erica Wall and Charlene Tan and presented in partnership with MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists.
