Join us on Saturday, 6/22 from 4-6 pm for a conversation with Ilana Krepchin, Ted Ollier, Ellen Shattuck Pierce, and CW Roelle, the artists featured in our current exhibition Duets.

Pierce, a printmaker, and Roelle, a sculptor, initially collaborated in 2019 for an exhibition titled While it lasts at 13FOREST. The show conveyed the bittersweet reality of being a working artist with young children and balancing the all-consuming nature of artistic practice with the demands of parenting. As part of their collaborative installation, Pierce designed an environment of toile wallpaper in which Roelle arrayed a series of wire sculptures. The effect was highly decorative yet deeply personal. Having enjoyed this collaboration, Pierce and Roelle proposed a follow-up show, which we expanded into Duets by inviting printmaker Ted Ollier and sculptor Ilana Krepchin to add their perspectives through a body of new work. The assignment of Duets inspired the artists to work in new ways and to expand on shared ideas. The result is a cooperative environment of artwork that is visually distinctive, personal and playful.
