Spring Solo Exhibitions to Open at The Center for Contemporary Art
Auguste Elder: Sublunarians, presents the work of ceramist, artist and educator, Auguste Elder. Elder graduated from The University of the Arts, and New York University, and has studied pottery independently in Philadelphia, Paris, and New York City. He has been a visiting artist at Salem Art Works (SAW) since 2015, where he focuses primarily on wood-firing vessels and urns inspired by Japanese and Etruscan wares. Auguste teaches art to high school students at The Calhoun School in Manhattan, NY, and ceramics at ClayHouse in Brooklyn, NY.
Marsha Goldberg: Reiterations-
Margaret Fanning: Snapshots, showcases the recent work of artist and faculty member of The Center, Margaret Fanning. A New Jersey native, Fanning has had art woven into her life from a young age. Influenced and encouraged by her grandmother, who was an artist herself, she went on to study at Savannah College of Art and Design where she earned her BFA in Painting. She takes her inspiration from snapshots and explains, "little to no preparation goes into creating an image, keeping the moment as honest as possible. They mark a time when someone followed a whim, released their camera shutter, and hoped that the image wouldn't be blurry."
