Three Artists to Exhibit at Trailer Box Project
Opening Reception at 5:00pm on Saturday, April 9th
Danbury, CT – Trailer Box Project will unveil a new exhibit, “Three Artists,” with an opening reception at 5:00pm on Saturday, April 9th. The new show coincides with the reveal of Trailer Box Project’s new onsite exhibition space, and will feature works by local artists. The exhibit will run through May 7th.
“Each of the artists selected for this exhibition have very different aesthetic sensibilities,” says Dana Walker, Director of Trailer Box Project, “From observations of light and space to social commentary, the three voices in this exhibition speak from noticeably different viewpoints, yet experiencing them together results in an unexpected harmony.”
Sculptor Bob Keating’s abstract works often explore humanity’s relationship with the environment. Heavily influenced by shapes and designs found in nature, Keating uses white quartz, steel, wood and concrete to create organic forms that are rich with sensitivity. Keating’s award-winning sculptures have been exhibited throughout the Northeast and can be found in public and private collections throughout the country.
Painter Megan Marden’s new series of still life paintings are an investigation of her own small Danbury studio. At once highly personal and easily relatable, Marden’s works explore light and space with a quirky sensibility and an earnest nod to painting’s history. Marden earned her M.F.A. at Western Connecticut State University, and has exhibited her work in Connecticut and New York. In 2014 she was named a “Top Up and Coming Visual Artist” by CBS Connecticut.
Finally, artist Rita Valley utilizes a wide range of mediums to engage in social discourse. Valley’s collages, artist books, and fabric text pieces expose the ills of modern society -- from economic inequality to the media’s impact on body image -- with a wry wit and keen comprehension of color, pattern and texture. Valley’s works are included in a variety of public collections, including Yale University, Stanford University, and The National Museum of Women in the Arts.
