Curated by Erika Diamond, Assistant Director of CVA Galleries, Counterbalance features women working primarily in the media of Wood and Textiles, using a hybridized language of adornment and structure. Wood objects drape over corners and conform to the body, while textiles muscle in with bold color and rigid form. Works scale walls and shimmer from across the room in this exhibition that plays with our understanding of hard edges and soft curves.
About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
