Provincetown, MA: The Schoolhouse Gallery presents:
April 22 – May 22, 2022
The gallery is pleased to present CROWN SHY, an exhibition featuring selected works from our artist’s studios. This first exhibition of 2022 is a spring offering paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints presented in association, groupings, or installed to indicate a conversation between works intended to be completed by the viewer. Using Marcel Duchamp’s idea that both the artist and the viewer are necessary for the completion of a work of art this installation explores the unsaid, possibly invisible but arguably palpable questions and possibilities that appear when the material world resides in association with itself.
The phenomenon called crown shyness — when the tops of individual trees avoid touching in the forest canopy, creating separation lines and boundaries in the sky – is a way for trees to optimize light exposure for everything under the canopy. Crown shyness doesn’t happen all the time, and it can occur in any forest. This exhibition creates a succession of moments in association with light and spaces held for the viewer to complete each story: Crown Shy.
CROWN SHY features work from:
MARK ADAMS/ BREON DUNIGAN/ WILLIAM HAMLIN/ DIANA HOROWITZ/ HAN FENG/ TESS MICHALIK/ ANNA POOR/ JASON ROHLF/ STEPHANIE FRANK SASSOON/ ANNE SMITH/ PAUL STOPFORTH/
