April 23 – June 4
The Jaffrey Civic Center will be hosting a solo exhibition of the works of Keene artist, Craig Stockwell. The exhibit, “memorials (observed)” opens April 23 and will be on display in the center’s Cunningham Gallery. On April 23, there will be an artist talk at noon followed by a reception from 1-2.
About “memorials (observed)”:
This project consists of ten large installation paintings and 10 videos. The videos are both integral to the making of the paintings (as documentation, performance and source projections) and stand-alone adjunct remnants. The subject of each work is, really, mortality, but also how to research and consider history. The histories considered are personal, ancestral, art historical, and periodic. There is also consideration of how painting processes might develop to carry their own sensory narrative.
Stockwell lives in Keene, New Hampshire. He has taught at Keene State College, Marlboro College, Union Institute and University, and Vermont College of Fine Arts (MFA). From 2013-20 he was the Director of the Visual Arts Program at the low-residency MFA at NH Institute for Arts. Currently he teaches in the MFA programs at Lesley University and MassArt.
