Through the use of painting, sculpture, found objects, and performance, (Contained) examines the tensions which arise from internal and external limitations. Residents and alumni of chashama's chaNorth Residency address the concept of "containment," in dialogue with time, space, and identity. The exhibition features work by Meredith Walker, Sophie Bortolussi, Gian Luigi Braggio, Donna Cleary, Timothy Lee, Margaret Lee, Lanelle Pintal, Peter Fulop, Bill Pagano, Lauren Smith, Brigitta Varadi, and Katya Grokhovsky.
chaNorth is chashama's New York State artist residency aimed at providing a nourishing, focused environment for emerging artists and writers, as they continue their committed practices. The program offers an opportunity for 5-6 emerging artists to remove themselves from the typical demands of daily life and immerse themselves in a creative live/work space for four weeks. chaNorth is located on five acres of sprawling meadow, adjacent to hundreds of acres of undeveloped woods in the scenic Hudson Valley.
