Sheila Crider: Volume Revisited
June 26th - July 17th, 2016
Opening Reception: Sunday, June 26th 3-6 PM
"My intent is to articulate issues of contemporary culture and art through installations of similar objects that embody social and/or aesthetic ideas in ways that allow future generations to study how we lived and created. Philosophically and socially, I make work to strengthen the artist’ relationship with the public at large and to challenge how “fine art” is defined. My studio ambition is to integrate image, object and frame using abstraction to make pictures or settings that read as something familiar. "
Sheila Crider, May 2016
“Volume Revisited” features 3-d structured paper works, and a selection of embellished oil-based monotype prints from the series “Between Rocks and a Hard Heart Place”. Organically inspired volumetric works explore contour and space with intricately manipulated ribbons of painted line. The visual range of the show is divergent and contemplative.
During her extensive career Sheila Crider has exhibited nationally, and has been honored with Artist Residencies at Cite Internationale Des Artes, Paris, France; Leighton Studios, the Banff Center in Alberta Canada; and Stone Quarry Hill Art Park in Cazenovia, New York. Recent commissions include a 2015 sculpture installation for the St. Elizabeth’s Way Finding Project in Washington, D.C.
The work of Sheila Crider has been publicly collected by the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., The Library of Congress Print Collection, The Mino Washi Paper Museum, Mino, Japan; and the Yale University Book Collection.
