Strong Color, Intricate Geometry: Professor Mark Wethli Curates NYC Show Archives

Bowdoin’s A. LeRoy Greason Professor of Art Mark Wethli is curating a new exhibition, MacDowell Now: Recent Abstract Painting, at The Curator Gallery in New York City.

The show features the work of six artists — Lisa Corinne Davis, Julian Kreimer, John O’Connor, Gina Occhiogrosso, Gary Petersen, and Amanda Wojick — whose artworks are notable for their “strong color, fractured geometry, and intricate compositions,” Wethli said. The exhibition is named for the MacDowell Colony, in Peterborough, N.H., where all six of the artists were residents in 2017.

Wethli was a MacDowell fellow in 1983 and 1996. This is the fourth exhibition that he has curated for the gallery, which is at 520 West 23rd Street in Manhattan. The show opens April 19 and ends June 2.
