Line Describing a Cone: Tri-State Juried Exhibition at Katonah Museum of Art, January 18 through February 15, 2015.

The list of accepted artists from around New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut may be found here and includes among them Mark Savoia of Still River Editions, as well as local sculptor Eric Camiel (Camiel's sculpture, "Crescent Use", is at left), and mixed-media artist Stacey Kolbig, of New Fairfield.

From their website: "The definition of space is one of the fundamental features of visual representation in twentieth and twenty-first century art. From the oscillating layers of a Cézanne painting to the deep corridors of depth in a de Chirico work, artists have addressed the elements of three dimensions in various and often competing ways. Using film as light cutting through space, contemporary artist Anthony McCall’s work, Line Describing a Cone (1973) inspires this year’s theme; the piece is spatial and temporary, with light the primary medium giving form to an environment. Artists are invited to explore the meaning of space in their work, using whatever materials and expressive outlets they require. Representing space is but one potential feature; experiencing with works that proclaim their physical relationship to their environment another."

The exhibit was juried by Eva Respini, Curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Katonah Museum of Art is located at 134 Jay St., Katonah, New York.
