“Raw Material” Opens at Davis Gallery

The Davis Gallery at Houghton House will host an opening reception for “Raw Material,” an exhibit of drawings, reliefs and photographs by sculptor Ann Reichlin on Friday, Feb. 17. Inhabiting the realm between drawing and sculpture, Reichlin’s experimental, intimate works explore states of transformation and arrested motion. The exhibit will feature more than 50 micro-works.

In her work, Reichlin focuses on issues of transience, fragility and memory while simultaneously providing a look into her response to various architectural circumstances. Her recent exhibitions include “Ann Reichlin: Counterpoint” at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art (2010), “Translucent Home,” Sculpture Space (2008-9) and “New Installations: Artists in Residence,” Mattress Factory (2003).

Reichlin has been widely recognized for her work, receiving fellowships from the New York Foundation for Arts in the category of Architecture/Environmental Structures in 2000 and 2008, a 2006 grant from NYSCA, and a 2010 CAP Artist Fellowship. Her work has also been feature in various publications, including: NYFA Current, Sculpture Magazine and “Sculpture Space the Book.” Her work is currently included in Stone Canoe, Issue 6.

The opening reception takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Davis Gallery at Houghton House, 1 Kings Lane, on Friday, Feb. 17. The exhibit will run through March 19. The gallery is open Monday thru Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday 1 to 5 p.m.
