Closing Reception: “To Shed New Light” by Cecilia André

March 10, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Visit Materials for the Arts for the closing reception for To Shed New Light by MFTA Artist-in-Residence Cecilia André. In celebration of André’s residency, we invite you to be transported to an immersive dreamscape of assemblage works featuring a vast array of objects and materials. While working at MFTA, André allowed herself to get lost to find shapes, shades, and textures, creating works that beckon for closer inspection and reveal tiny stories meshed together by delicate interventions.

Illuminating these pieces and compositions with colored shadows, André emphasizes the wonder of “transparent” light. She literally and figuratively sheds new light on the materials featured in her work, including everything from lampshades to glass vases, to figurines, trinkets, straws, floss, wire notebook bindings, and beads.

Join artist Cecilia André at this celebratory closing reception. This exhibition was curated by Mina Warchavchik Hugerth.
