10 X Relay – Cat’s Cradle

September 6 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us First Friday, September 6th from 5-9pm at the UT Downtown Gallery for an exhibition featuring the work of 10 abstract painters from New York.

10 X Relay – Cat’s Cradle

The passing back and forth of ideas in painting is like the relay and return of the knotted patterns in the game of cat’s cradle. Each painting is a string configuration that we hold out to be received by another, or that we receive and respond to by adding something new, by proposing another knot, another net. We play cat’s cradle with ourselves, with each other, with art history.  Entangled in a myriad of configurations, we start from a place that doesn’t wipe out what comes before – we make paintings of inheritances and remembering.

10 X Relay includes artists: Kylie Heidenheimer, Pinkney Herbert, Erick Johnson, Jackie Meier, Laura Newman, Pierre Obando, Jennifer Riley, Russell Roberts, Lisa Taliano, and Chuck Webster.  It is a celebration and recognition of these artists’ indebtedness to each other as friends and painters. Companions in conflict and collaboration, the artists in this show are tied together by the threads of making, thinking and doing, entangled in a painting dialog, bound together in a knotted net of past, present, and future.
