3 New Projects Open at McLean Project for the Arts

Three new exhibitions opened earlier this month at the McLean Project for the Arts and will remain on display through March 7.

“Manifesting Phenomena: Drop, Hover, See-Through, Lean…” is up in the McLean Project for the Arts’ Emerson Gallery. The exhibit includes work by artists who are interested in investigating concepts of physical science, ranging from sculpture that inhabits physical space in order to better understand and demonstrate force, energy and matter, to works depicting the patterns of the earth and its cycles of change. Sculptors Barbara Liotta, Annie Farrar and Joan Belmar are the artists featured in this show.

Painter Jean Sausele-Knodt is the featured artist in the exhibit “Out for a Spin,” which is on display in the Atrium Gallery. Beginning with loose references to flora and fauna, Sausele-Knodt creates shaped paintings that deftly move the viewer through a series of shifting and fragmented picture planes.

“Contemporary Scrolls” by painter Laura Litten is on display in the Ramp Gallery. Litten created long, scroll-like drawings, which are featured in this exhibit – the scrolls are expanded, fabricated landscapes meant to convey a sense of vast space along with lovingly rendered participants in the natural world.
